    Does anyone have experience with autotrader.com? I'm wondering about how long I could expect a vehicle to sell if I list it there.

    I have a 2005 Ford Focus ZX3 hatchback. It's got about 90k miles on it and runs great. It's been in two fender benders but has been repaired and looks/runs good as before. I want to get rid of it and get something else and don't really want to resort to trading it in and getting ripped off.

      Obviously... I'd be selling it for a reasonable price.

        Kelly Blue Book puts it at a private party resale value of $5,160. I'd sell it for $4,500.

          I have better luck on craigslist to be honest. I sold two trucks on craigslist both with one week turnarounds.

            I sold 2 cars on eBay. When I listed on Auto Trader they just sat there.

                  I sold my old car on craigslist and have bought a truck on craigslist, not to mention its free to post.

                  Autotrader is alot nicer of a site.

                      Side question:

                      Besides it maybe not making a lot of sense. Is it possible to buy a vehicle through a dealer while overseas?

                        I have sold, and bought a few cars from Autotrader. The good thing is once you pay for the add (the optional) it will run until the car sells. I wasn't in a hurry to sell my cars in the past, so that was a key point.

                        Edmunds has a free 30 day add that you can run, I sold my Mustang through them not too long ago.

                        Are you in a hurry to get rid of the car?

                          Yes. I'm currently deployed, so I'm paying on a vehicle that I intend to get rid of anyways. The sooner the better really. The vehicle is at my parent's house and I'm thinking about employing my little brother to clean it up, take pictures and put ads on the net for me... as well as have some help from my bro/parents if there are any people interested in viewing/test driving it.
