“Dear PoPville,

I’ve finally decided it’s time to sell my car. I’ve lived here almost two years and put barely any miles on it. I take Metro to and from work, do lots of walking, am appreciating Capital Bikeshare, and will rely on ZipCar and car rentals when I need motorized wheels. After spending the 15 years before DC somewhere where this wasn’t even a remote option, I’m excited about the prospect of living car-free.

I’ve posted my car on CraigsList but I’m wondering whether people actually use any other car sale sites to find used cars. Do people use sites like Auto Trader? Are there others? It’s a great car and I’m comfortable with the idea that I’m selling a good vehicle – I’m just trying to figure out where people look.”

Any advice on the best way to sell a used car?
