You are smart to hesitate selling this car on your own.
If you sold the car to a dealer, they would only give you a trade-in amount. They need to purchase the vehicle and then raise the price to sell it to a buyer and make a profit.

There are many online sources where you can post your car for sale with a small advertising or sign up fee. Online also gives you the flexibility of listing every aspect of your car that would be appealing to a potential buyer and does not limit you in the number of words to use.
Try AutoTrader.com, DealsonWheels.com, eBayMotors.com. or CraigsList.org (free).
Be sure to incorporate digital pictures of your car from all angles, interior & exterior.
