Well, you can guage it's value on KBB, Edmunds, and NADA. You can also research and see what dealers and people are asking for similar year, mileage, and equipment Accords on Autotrader, Craigslist, etc to compare to the online value websites.

Bear in mind that what individuals and dealers are asking isn't necessarily what they're getting. And note you should be using the various guides PRIVATE PARTY pricing. Add each valuation and divide by the number of valuations and you'll have your mathematical average- which should give you some comfort.

^^^This. Remember, though, all of these resources are compiled from what has already sold. What it's worth is up to the buyer...

Pretty much this. You need to compare your car to others with the same trim level, options and mileages and try to get a range for an acceptable price. I have access to dealer side info and I ran the numbers on a 2006 Honda Accord EX, 4 cylinder, automatic w/ 50,000 miles. The suggested trade-in offer that a dealer would make to you assuming average condition is $11,000 and should retail for $15,000. If your car is a different trim level or has more options, that would have a big impact on the price.
