    Best Option for Selling

    So I have a '03 Marauder. Got it from a small dealership out in western PA. I'm looking to sell it now, I've had my fun with it and I want to go back to an SUV. How do you guys recommend I go about selling it? As in the best platform to sell it on(i.e. Facebook marketplace, Craigslist). Not that I would sell something like this on Craigslist. I appreciate any response guys. Thank you.

    Problem is, the dealership only wants to give me $2500 for a trade in, far below what my car is worth

    A lot of variables come into play on trade ins. Trading in for a new or used car? Is there a tax advantage in your state? It may be a wash if those are in play.

    Otherwise Iíd ask did you buy the car as an investment? Because generally you loose money when selling, unless your marauder has 10k on it and itís impeccable.

    Or, you could always try another dealer, just to see if they are in the same ballpark as the other.

    Gotta agree with Bob, 4K miles in a month would make flags pop up for me too.

    My $8 offer is still valid

    . I don't see anything wrong with Craigslist I've sold several Marauder that way. it's not worse than Facebook OfferUp Five Mile and all the other ridiculous sites out there. people are still people! Lol if you want to sell it that way post it on all of them. you're going to get the same low ballers on OfferUp and Facebook Market that you're going to get on Craigslist. at least with Craigslist put a phone number up so they can call you. unless you want to be messaging all day on your phone. all those other car for sale apps I think are a big joke. Lastly why would you buy a car for one month for that kind of money just to turn around and sell it? Did you hot rod it and possibly mess something up now you want to sell. Its very suspicious of how short of a time You owned it and why You already want to sell.

    Kind of sounds like that guy on Youtube that kept posting videos where he drove all the way to Georgia or FLorida or somewhere from Oklahoma to buy a Marauder. Drove it all the way back home, had a flat tire. Kept talking about how great a car it was. When he got home, had it painted at Maaco just to decide that he has too many cars and then shortly, like a month after buying it, put it up for sale again.

    literally nothing wrong with it, I just don't want it anymore and I want to go back driving an SUV. I replaced the steering rack because of a power steering fluid leak. There are no issues with the car whatsoever. Sounds suspicious, but I'm not that kind of guy to screw someone over like that
