It's not an exact science. Car is worth what you think it is, and or what the seller is willing to let the car go for. If both parties know, maybe a little less than book value. Depends on the type of accident and the quality of the fix.

U'll rarely get true good trade value compared to selling it outright. Go to dealer negotiate price of another car, tell them u have No trade in. Than after u get bottom price THAN tell them of trade in, that's real price u'll get! Look into selling it yourself it may b worth the hassle!

The only thing that will nix true negotiations is if the title is branded, that really kills it.
