I'm gonna list my car on one of them tonight but i was wondering what everyone thought. I'm sure at least one of you have used one of them.
Here's the price breakdown;
Carsoup-Online only, 1 picture, runs until it sells-----$25
Autotrader-Online only, 1 pictures, 3 week ad------$30
or Online and print, 9 pictures, run it until it sells----$40

If it's the Trans-Am put it in both Carsoup and Autotrader. When my buddie sold his mustang he got hits from both sites. I think he actually sold it from one of the autotrader ads though.

I'd personally go with the autotrader online and print for 40.

I sold a car in like a week on carsoup. It's a good site and is the cheapest way to go. No complaints here :beer:

My truck that I couldn't sell any other way for the past 3 months sold in less than 20 hours on Car Soup.

My Honda Civic sold in less than one week on Car Soup.

Autotrader is bad news. I had my 500 in the cycle trader (same outfit) and I got more internet relay calls from african scammers then anything else.

Not that it matters anymore, but I bought my bike off of Carsoup. The ads they ran on TV a few years ago seem to have stuck in people's heads.

Carsoup :punk:

Don't use carsoup. It's impossible for a potential buyer to get an email response from the seller. :thumbdown:

Original thought :moon:

But what happened to getting more pictures. If I am not sure if I want to buy it, I am not drive 2 hours aways with out seeing pictures of having an idea of what condition it's in.

I've been trolling cycletrader and carsoup the past few days. I like carsoup a million times better. It's hard to find anything on cycletrader.
