What is the Actual Cash Value for My Car, Truck, or SUV?

The actual cash value, or informally referred to as ACV, is the financial worth of your vehicle at any time. If you bought a new Nissan Altima a few years ago at North Plainfield Nissan, that car would not have the same value as it did the day you purchased it in North Plainfield, NJ. Over time, every vehicle depreciates, which means that it loses value. The loss of value for a mode of transportation originates mostly from wear-and-tear damage, accrued mileage, and time.
