Very general and broad value guides are provided by organizations such as NADA and Kelley Blue Book. My experience has shown those values to be pretty optimistic.
A better method is to search classified ads for very similar vehicles. Even at that, it is still no more than a good guesstimate. Extremely few cars are actually sold for their asking price. So you still don't know what they sell for.
There is one method though that will determine EXACTLY what your vehicle is worth. (And I'm not trying to be a smart *** here). Put it on Ebay and sell it for the highest bid. THAT is exactly what it is worth at that time.
Many will say that they paid $500 for a car and then put $20000 in it. So that should make it worth $20500! Not true! People often overspend on cars that just don't have market value. Few people will pay accordingly.
The current market will determine EXACTLY what any vehicle is worth. And that is measured by how much one pays. It cannot be worth more if no one will pay more for it.

Well said boatcat!

Another option is to have your vehicle appraised, however, even though it might be valued at one price it is still only be worth what someone is willing to pay for it.

Here are a few appraisers in Arizona if you are interested.
