Who wants to play whats it worth

I purchased my 2005 Civic HX just a couple months ago when I was driving almost 100 miles a day round trip. Now I have a new job that is much much closer to where I live and am not in need of the mpg anymore. If I have "negative" equity in the car then I would just keep it for a while, but if people are still in the mood to pay a bit more for a high mpg vehicle then I would love to part with it.

So back to the title. What is a silver 2005 civic HX automatic with under 50K miles worth in todays market?

Thanks in advance guys.

meh, compare similiar ones on ebay in your area for a quick glimpse of the market. You can also check kelly blue book, it might work for a 2005, but they like to devalue older cars more than the market does.

Finding a HX with low miles to compare to hasn't been an easy task.

With OPEC declaring it won't increase output, oil futures jumped suddenly last week. We have not seen that at the pump, although I think the price has ceased dropping around here. Unless the Saudis ride to the rescue on their own, as they have at times in the past, I think the predictions of $5 gasoline have a chance of becoming reality, maybe. In that scenario. Sell it later this summer.

My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

Why not just keep the civic? Keep the fuel costs down to a minimum in addition to having a short commute.

Craigslist is the first place I hit when I want to know what something is worth. It is a bit hit-or-miss, but it is a good way to see what's out there.

Used car prices are almost comparable to new car, and with the present economic conditions being what they are, you'll get the top end of the range for the car. But you should not give the car up. You have a very desireable vehicle, and if the gas prices go up again, no one is going to buy new.
