Have you tried the used car price guides like Kelley Blue book, NADA guide or Edmunds? KBB.com, NADAguides.com and Edmunds.com. Bill

KBB lists trade-in value as $7200 (assuming "very good" condition). Actual trade-in would probable closer to $6K. Private party resale is listed at about $9,100. $9K is a good "starting point". Some things to consider here are that the supercharger on this car is living on borrowed time after 100K miles. Also, the catalytic converter is entering it's "sundown" age. These are both multi-thousand dollar repairs. The car may be fine for tens of thousands of more miles, or it may have problems tomorrow - you never know, but odds are, it's going to need some maintenance on those parts soon. That's not a bad thing, but something to know going into the negotiation.
