Autotrader is a full car magazine aimed at selling your car. It's supposed to be easy to create an advert, easy to sell your car, and distribute to loads of people. This may well be true, but in my experience trying 2 cars and a van through this magazine, I have found that they can be very hit and miss.

I recently used the Auto trader website to buy my Peugeot 206. I was very happy as the website is easy to navigate, and I quickly found the best car for me. The search tools allow you to find all cars of your designated make and model with in a set distance of your address (using your post code).
