Sophie Mathews ASKED THE GUIDE

Trading in a Honda HR-V

I'd like to sell my 1999 1.6-litre Honda HR-V (4x4) Sport. I've owned it from new, it's in immaculate condition and has done 99,778km. How much is it worth?

The trade would pay about $7000 at auction. You'd get about $7500 if you traded it in on a new car, and the dealer would retail it for about $10,500 with the usual taxes paid and with a warranty. You could aim for a similar figure, but you might find you'll be bartered down to between $8000 and $9000.
