Selling a car with faults

We want to trade-in our Honda Accord for a new car, but have noticed that it has developed a few faults. It seems to be a faulty fuel injector and the car is misfiring under load. What should we do? We are hoping to get £500-£800 for it, but don't want to be dishonest.

At this price level I don't think you need to worry too much, but you should declare the fault. I'd guess that the dealer will simply give you the p/x allowance and punt the car out to a local trader or to auction.
