Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

1989 Geo Metro
by Homemaker from Hurricane, ut. | July 21, 2008
I bought it new in 1989. It now has 219,000 mile on it.
It has had a new clutch, water pump, alternator, front brakes. It has had all the hoses and bests replaced many times. Other than that it has been trouble free. It is now our daily driver because of high gas prices! It gets between 46 and 50 mph, consistantly. It uses approx 1 qt of oil every 3000 miles. It still gets serviced every 3000 miles. It doesn't have any oil leaks. There are some things wearing out, like struts, and shock. I wouldn't want to try and drive it from here to new york, but for short trips, and around town It's still a great little car.
