Frankly dont have the time or patiance to want to sell private. the area is flooded with civics.

And I plan to take it back to honda

Re: trading in car.. any advice/help?

dude first off a civic is not crap... they have a great resale value.

2 just make your car pretty... Pay attention to detail cause it might get the stealership to give u higher than KBB

3 Look up KBB yourself, and tell them that u could prolly get a private guy to buy it, for XXXX price. That is if they try to give u way lower than KBB.

4 make it as stock as possible

Re: trading in car.. any advice/help?

exactly and to be really honest... mileage isnt that big of a factor imo... like i kbb'd my car some time back at 84000 then again at 110000 and it was like only off by like 700 dollars (well i guess that is pretty big)

1 miles = 1.609344 kilometers
and y doesn't kbb help you exactly??
