    My boss is trying to see a 97 Saab 93 Turbo SE w/100kmiles , he's listed it in the bargainnews and has had a total of 1 call on it. So I thought we'd get some feedbcak as to where people look these days

    AutoTrader... that's the only place I even look. They have the most listings out of all the sites anyway- at least in the Texas area.

    i would go with a local paper or weekly classified magazine...

    the problem with online is that you get lots of coverage, but very rarely are the people near you unless you are in a big city..

    That is whats good about cars.com... a lot of newspapers will put your add on cars.com when you put it in their paper. When I put my car up for sale, I called the bee and they put it in cars.com.

    What I like about cars.com over any other site is that you can search for a radius around your zipcode. My brother's accord is on there and he's getting a lot of calls... granted they're all flakes, but still.

    I hate searching autotrader because I'll search for what car I want and see something I like, but it'll be 2000 miles away.

    That's why you tell it to only search within 300 miles... :duh: ;)

    AutoTrader is good but also list it on craigslist for your area, Boston and NY.

    My sales rep had problems selling his 99 SAAB. He tried the courant. I just don't know if there is no demand for the cars.

    Maybe he's asking too much money for his car. What is he asking for it? When a car like that has a 100K miles on it, regular non-mechanical people aren't too excited about buying them. Honda people are more fearless about high mileage cars.

    cars.com/autotrader.com

    i check both at the same time, or a local newspaper....but i'd do the paper/cars.com thing because some papers list their classified ads on cars.com. I think a newspaper actually owns cars.com

    The asking price was $6000 obo
    to price the car he looked at the bargain news for a week or two and kept track of the high/low value of other saabs that were for sale and proced his in the middle.

    and the kbb, nadaguides, and edmunds all give the car a value = or > than the asking price

    Bluebook means nothing though, its all in the specific demand in the area.
