We are trying to sell our truck 2003 Ford Explorer for a smaller vehicle.
The problem is that everytime we go to the dealership and try to trade it in.
Most of the dealerships don't even want our truck. They try to convince us to keep the truck and just finish the payments AND buy their car too. Which of course we are not crazy enough to do.
They say that they have too many trucks on the lot right now, they don't even want the truck.
Our truck is a Gas Guzzler and we need to save on gas right now.
Any suggestions or help or our WE stuck for a while?
My suggetion is to get a Toyota. If you had one I am betting every dealer in your town would be trying to buy it from you. I have had several and they all seem to be very happy doing 350,000 miles +. My latest Tacoma Pick-up has over a quarter of a Million miles and is still going strong, hence no reson to sell it yet...
If I had a bundle of cash I might try one of the Electric Hybrid Toyota Prius cars, but I'd opt for the bolt-in extra batterys solution to burning far less gas and just plug in at home more often. Most drivers drive less than forty miles a day anyway.
On a slightl different note:
A really neat E-Car site is acpropulsion.com his electric cars are Fantasic! I believe his, (Allan Cocconi's), research and development of electric cars is one of the reasons we are seeing so much movement towards Electric vehicles.... Alan Cocconi the owner and developer of the T-Zero electric car that goes 0 to 60 in less than 4 seconds...That makes it faster than the Ferrari, the Covette and the Porsche.
All my best,

2)sell it to second hand markets
3)ford is gas guzzler , try to convince some one who need that powerfull truck.
I would say you are stuck for a while. Many Americans who bought gas guzzling trucks with no regard for the environment or cost of fuel will find it difficult to get rid of those trucks - especially with the amount of them being dumped on the market. Gas in Europe has reached epic prices, and I imagine the US will follow along. Think $9 a gallon soon.....
Try removing a couple of spark plugs
I like Marks suggestion Still a smart a** , No wonder his brothers call him that ;-)
Sell it on ebay this month they are having one of those deals where you can sell you car or truck with out paying listing fees until it sells. Not a bad deal . When you do sell it they charge you $125.00
Search for your truck and see what other people are paying for a similar one. People are still buying gas guzzlers, you know Americans many of them still think the government is going to help out the average guy.
I would try selling it yourself if you can, rather than trading it in.
We had a similar experience a few months ago. We tried selling our 1999 Ford F150. I had an ad posted on Auto Trader for over six weeks, and we only had two calls. One was some guy asking if we'd like to trade our truck for his mobile powerwashing business, and the other guy offered us $2000 less than what we listed the truck for. We decided it would be best to keep the truck for now. Good luck to you.
Yes I agree that you should try selling it on Craig List.
