    Well that sucks, looks like Edmunds has sunsetted their Open Vehicle Data API initiative.

    http://edmunds.mashery.com/faq#api_disabled
    As our API developer base has grown, an increasing amount of our engineering resources have been required to support the open API Program, and thereby diverted from our business. To refocus our engineering efforts and to better align ourselves with the evolving needs of our car shoppers, dealers and automotive advertisers, we are retiring our open API Program. You can read our full announcement here.

    -----------

    I've found both https://www.car-database-api.com and https://www.marketcheck.com/automotive, but do you know of any free to nearly free alternatives?

    Edmunds started restricting access to their API starting in 2016; turning off accounts and making users fill-out an application to get access.

    There really are none out there :2quiet: - We built our own
