    where is the best place to sell a ford mondeo ?

    hi

    a friend has asked me to try and sell his car for him, i have looked at ebay and the fees are stupid.

    does anyone know any other online places to sell cars with a more reasonable scale of fees as its an older car so wont fetch more than about £500

    thanks

    loot.com is free for cars under £3k or Gumtree is free too

    I agree,my sis sold her car on the Loot,placed the ad online for free:thumbsup:

    park it on a roundabout... thats what seems to happen round here

    I'm not being critical, but Mondeos once they reach that age (I presume it is old due to the asking price) are a very bad buy. I wouldn't touch it myself, but probably would suit a first time buyer with lots of money for repairs. A friend of mine with a V reg Mondeo just forked out £600+ for a new Clutch.

    You paid £600 for a clutch?

    My local garage did my clutch on a Mondeo for £300

    No it's not :whistling:

    Ebay fees aren't that bad on cars. £12 for a 30 day classified (off the top of my head), certainly beats adtrader and you get a hell of a lot of viewers.

    i could only find the fees for an auction which are a minimum of £21 plus 0.75 of final selling fee, think i may take a look at classifieds then, thanks

    Depends where you live. Autotrader are good in the South East. Don't know about further north though. Sometimes local papers are better.

    Ebay motors uses a completely different fee scale.

    £12.99 for a classified and no FVF. £8 for a normal listing and £20 FVF in your case. Go classified:thumbsup:

    To clarify, it is illegal for one person to sell two cars or more on the same stretch of road.
