    So I have a pickup I want to sell. Where have you had the best luck advertising a vehicle for sale? I haven't tried to do that through an ad for at least 15 years and there were only a few places then. Now I get a long list - some free, some not - and I need some advice.

    Before someone asks: 2014 F150 XLT, 5L V8, 89k miles, The Woodlands

    I did drop an ad on Woodlands Online, but the first contact I got looks like a total scam. Wants to pay via PayPal and have a service pick it up. No name, etc. Probably some boiler room in Pakistan.

    Autotrader is still the best route.
    Craigslist will get you a million replies, but half will be scammers and flakes.

    Autotrader if you want to meet with people & haggle on price.
    If you just want to get rid of it for a fair price try Carmax.

    I work next to the metropolis of Cut 'N Shoot. I've heard good and bad about Carmax - and I'm guessing that your +$200 reflects that experience.

    True. Still a relatively small audience.

    Check out the car vending machine folks, Carvana. You enter the license plate and state. It finds your vehicle, asks a few questions liek mileage and condition. Hit enter an hte price pops up. If you like they will come pick it up and hand you a check on the spot. Usually your get dealer trade in value.
