Default Trade In?

I was thinkin about bringing my car to a dealer to see how much I could get for a trade in for a 2000+ bonne. In your oppinion, is it worth it, or should i stick with what I have now? I have a few perks I know regualr SE'* dont come with, at least I think. (Leather seats, security system). Also what would I have to make sure looks good, to get the most for the trade in? The car does have around 130,000 miles on it.

You'll get the most for it selling it outright. Dealer I bought mine from shafted me on my trade but,it was a Malibu traded for a Bonnie. I didn't really care,I was just glad to get rid of it!!!!!

lol well problem is there cant be a gap between losing the car I have now and the new one. Plus seems like selling it used is going to be hard and I dont think I'm going to get much for it. There is a few scratches and dents on the body, and there are so many squeaks and groans and I have no idea what they are!

LOL thats easy for you to say HARO I might be able to do the 2 mile trip to work, but the 17 mile trip to school would NEVER happen. Would you think I would get more after a few engine mods? Or just bone stock. We are only talkin intake, 180 tstat, etc.
