Kelley Blue Book

Kelley Blue Book has long been known as the place to check for the value of your vehicle. When shopping for a Honda Civic, you'll want to check the value either in print or online. This information is important to have when making a purchase, to make sure you're not overpaying for a vehicle. Additionally, banks and other financial institutions have certain policies when loaning money for a used vehicle. Knowing the Blue Book value and purchasing accordingly will give you a better chance at securing a loan to cover the cost of the vehicle.

Honda Civic Blue Book Values

Blue Book values vary depending upon several factors. Once you know the year of the Honda Civic you're thinking of buying, you can check for retail, trade-in and private party values for the car. Retail value is what you can expect to pay when you purchase your Honda Civic from a car dealership. Trade-in value is the amount you'll likely be offered to trade your vehicle for another car. Private Party value is an estimate of what private sellers could expect to receive for sale of that particular car. Condition of a vehicle will come into play as well. Here are a few examples of what to expect for the value of certain Honda Civic vehicles:
