ontario best places to advertise private sale cheap certified car

Hi all,

I have a cheapo older (2006), bit high mileage (236K) infiniti g35x up for sale on kijiji, facebook and autotrader. It's 3500 certified with full set of snows on rims, spotless but a bit of paint touchup visible (keeping rust chips from going south and some hood delamination correction) but only a few bites so far off kijiji, nothing off facebook. Seems to be reasonably priced considering certified and ready to drive. Anyone have other sites they sell via or advice on where to advertise these days? Do universities/colleges have bboards or the like accessible? Curious what has worked well for others.

Why are you selling for $3,500 if the car is still good?

There's a BST forum here for cars.

Sell on Kijiji, I sold all my cars off Kijiji
Autotrader is a waste of time,
You can still use other platform, but kijiji get the most interest.

Don't worry about the rust part, it is a 13yrs old car. Not 3 months old.
All cars get can sold if priced well.

Also helps with Kijiji you see how long the person has been there.

For unethical curbsiders, maybe they had already been reported and accounts banned.

Facebook marketplace and Kijiji. If you aren't getting bites, your price is too high. Keep in mind that these cars are expensive to maintain when they get old, tough to sell when you are up against a civic or corolla.

I listed my car on facebook and autotrader. In the time I got 4 contacts on Autotrader, I got over 15 on Facebook.

I primarily search for cars on AutoTrader, but sometimes use Kijiji.

When I was selling my friend's Matrix last year. We got more response on facebook vs Auto trader or Kijiji.
Good luck!
