I am about to sell my 2003 Saturn Ion 3 (good condition) in Los Angeles county. I want to be rid of it by the end of the month. Is this a realistic expectation? What are the first steps in the process?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Georgia Brown, Director of Education at National Independent Automobile Dealers Association (NIADA) Alaina, Regional markets vary as do state laws and the most popular means for individuals selling cars. First check with the California Department of Motor Vehicles ( for regulations that might affect your selling process. A local independent automobile dealer might be interested in purchasing your car or is a good online resource which even recommends the steps to follow, including a link to NADA Official Guide Book to determine the value of your car. Good Luck!! Georgia Brown National Independent Automobile Dealers Assoc.
