Trade in is the keyword, You could have gotten far more selling it

i don't even know where to start selling it ? i just posted a thing on cars.com, but other then that.. i don't know .. i have had many cars and i have never lost anything on a trade it ... this is taking me for a loop !

You can try craigslist, but beware it is infested with scams, if you list it you will get several people that will say "I want the car. I will but it right now. So, before somebody else gets it, give me your bank account number and I will deposit the money today and have it picked up". Uh huh, right. Your local newspaper? maybe? Long distance selling/buying is a great risk. Put a sign on it and park it near a high traffic area, the cops will make you move it after a day or 2 however.
