XML from Kelley Blue Book (or similar sites)?

Posted on 2011-05-09

I'm just curious if anyone knows of a way to obtain vehicle information from any sites out there like KBB. I couldn't find any information on KBB's site about grabbing XML from them so I'm assuming it's not possible.

Ideally, I'd like to be able to retrieve used car values for a specified vehicle. It'd also be nice to be able to pull a list of manufacturers and models. I know there's a site out there that charges like $500 per year for a list of manufacturers but that's not going to fly for this job.

    KBB provides data on a subscription basis.  I recall it wasn't hard but it did require a username and password.

    I'll have to look into it. It doesn't look like I have many options unfortunately, at least not in terms of free ones. So far all of the free services I've found have been pretty poorly set up or incomplete.
