Thanks for staying with me on this one mr shiftright. And I am totally embarressed to say I'm not getting the same results you. I've followed the TMV path many many times looking for what you are saying I should see and I'm still not seeing it. (Should say however that your last submission is not completely rendered in a readable way. The last set of instructions are getting garbled in my browser window. I've tried multiple ways to refresh and re-render the content. I've also opened the page in a different browser and I'm getting the same results in Firefox and IE 8. So I'm not able to read your full response.)
Here is what I am doing:
1. Edmunds home, select TMV
2. In the TMV input form I enter: 2010, Toyota, Camry
3. As you say, the TMV form displays a list of 10 styles to select from. I select Camry LE FWD 4-door Sedan 4.5li4 Auto with an MSRP of $21,900
5. Whereupon another window allows me to continue to selectively specify 10 options plus color and Zip code. But none of the options relate to mileage. The selectable optons include things such as CD Changer, sunroof, USB radio, Alluminum Alloy wheels, mirror/compass, destination charges, down to CA Emissions, color and zip code. But no place to specify mileage.
6. At each step along this path I scroll down the window looking for a place to enter mileage but never find it. I do run off into the weeds with options for other things such as dealer quotes. And links to Incentives,s Insurance, Free Credit Score and Financing, But these would seem to be taking me off the TMV path.
I apoligize for my densesness. Really, I'm not usually this dense. But I'm stumped. I do see the mileage entry field in the Appraisal path but not in the TMV path. I've noted in another TMV/Mileage related thread that another Expert Commenter named Steve makes the same assertions re: mileage as a TMV valuation factor as you are making. So both of you are claiming mileage is a variable that can be entered into the TMV analysis. But I'm not able to do this based on your descriptions. Really, in most circles I'm considered very computer-capable. So this is bothering me on multiple levels. I appreciate your continued engagement, help and guidance. Thanks so much.
