I have no idea what to do....

We have a vehicle that won't pass inspection and we can't afford $500 to get it fixed. We think we want to just sell it. I have no idea how to get attention to the vehicle (considering we can't drive it, without inspection). We have it parked in our driveway and will put a for sale sign on it but we don't get much traffic on our street. Does anyone know any online sites that we can post it on to try to sell it? If so, how does the site work? Does it cost anything to post things for sale? We don't have the money to list it in our local paper, otherwise we'd do that. Thanks in advance.

I have never used it, but I have heard great things about Craig's list, you may want to give it a try. Some neighborhood grocery stores will also let you post adds on a buletin board. You could check in to that too. Just post a nice picture of the car, and make little tabs with your phone number that interested people can pull off to call you. Also put the out the word to everyone you know that you have a car available, they might tell someone else and hopefully you can get it sold that way.

Thanks. I'm planning on trying all of those things. Our other vehicle needs to be inspected next month so we decided to wait and see what happens there before selling. We'll keep the one that needs the cheapest work done and sell the other.

Camomom..sorry never saw your discussions..went to eat and now i'm here.. I had a truch that was going to take more than it was worth to pass inspections so each year i knew someone that would do the inspection for me since i guess some go by the book and some don't or aren't as strict..if you know anyone like that then I'd do that until you sell it if you'd like to keep it.. huggs

We are still debating on whether to try to keep it or not. We do have another vehicle. We are also trying to move closer to his job, hopefully walking distance. We also want to see if the other vehicle will pass it's inspection next month and if it doesn't we'll keep the cheaper (in repairs) of the two. It's just a big mess right now. Luckily, I don't usually need a vehicle when he's not here so he's been driving mine. I wish I knew someone that would do the inspections for us and not be so strict but we don't. Thanks for the response.

Craigslist doesn't cost anything. I would probably try there. Go to craigslist.org and search for the city nearest you.

Thanks, I'll try that. I wasn't sure how craigslist worked.
