More than half of the people who place ads on AutoTrader sell their cars within two weeks, and four of five of the millions of people who visit the site each month are specifically looking for a used car. AutoTrader's database contains three million listings from 40,000 dealers and 250,000 private owners. Selling your own car, according to studies, translates to as much as 8 percent premium over trading it in. AutoTrader will help you price your car and guide you through the process of placing an ad. A three-week package starts at about $45, an eight-week package is about $65 and a deluxe package (run until the car sells) is about $100. Spotlighted ads start at about $160. You can also order a Carfax report detailing your car's history to post with your ad.
