Find used cars for sale in Virginia by using a used car dealer search engine such as Autotrader.com or VirginiaUsedCarDealers.com,or by browsing the used car sections of the Virginia Craigslist pages. Auction sites such as eBay also allow filtering of results based on ZIP Code.
Autotrader.com features a special section completely dedicated to locating local dealers, which is accessed by clicking on the Find Local Dealers tab of the main navigation bar, as of March 2015. This page requires a ZIP Code, and the user then chooses a search radius that the site looks for dealers within.
Results are displayed both in a list and on a custom map. The map displays the search area and marks the dealers with special pins that contain contact information for the dealer. Each pin has a corresponding entry in the list section that contains contact details and a link to the dealers website.
Craigslist organizes its listings based on the major cities within the state and surrounding area, so a search for used cars in Virginia starts on the main Virginia Craigslist page, followed by choosing the appropriate subsection for auto listings. Auto listings are segmented into two groups: those sold by owners and those sold by dealers.
