The easy way to tell is to go to and look up your car and find out how much it is worth as a trade in and how much it should bring on the open market. Then decide if you want to put out that much effort for that amount of money. Also bear in mind that a dealer can get more money out of a vehicle than you can most of the time. While you are at it, find out how much your new car should be discounted if any. Really hot selling cars often bring more than retail while others might be discounted heavily.
