Default Difficulty selling my Scion iA

Hello everyone,

I have a 2016 Scion iA with manual transmission I want to sell.

Compared to other iAs (either 2017+ or 2016 Scion), my car is reasonably priced ($10.7k) and one of the only clean titles selling in my area as private owner.

I wonder what the difficulty is with getting people to call/look at the car. My two theories is:
  1. the car is manual. I'm guessing a small daily driver is not desired to be manual.
  2. bank has title. I sold my old car and the buyer paid cash since I had the title.
  3. it's my daily driver. I don't want to be paying insurance and moving my car during street sweeping with two cars. I rather use Uber for a week or two in between selling this car and buying another.
I've had it listed on Craigslist for almost 6 months. I'm curious if it's worth listing on Auto Trader for the fee. What are some good ideas on getting this car sold? I can't do anything about the car itself (manual transmission).

I don't want to trade it in. The purpose of private sell is to pay off debt. Trade in value is currently too low to pay off the title. I am willing to pay a bit out of pocket to get it sold. I am expecting about $500-1k to pay the difference between title pay off and what it will probably sell for.
