I'd like to convert a car to cash with minimal hassle.

I have a car I don't use that much, and a looming home repair that needs some money thrown at it. I'd like to convert the car to cash to be thrown at the home repair. But, in the face of the home repair vortex, I'd like to avoid getting bogged down in car-sale hassles. Is it a giant hassle to sell the car privately, or am I best off selling straight to a dealership?

Bonus: if I'm best off selling to a dealership, do you have recommendations for dealerships in the Twin Cities area who're likely to give me a good deal for the car / not give me headaches?
Car in question is a 2002 Mazda Protege 5, 68,000 miles, motor in good condition but body a little dinged from 12 years of city driving and a few rust spots.
