How much is a used 2008 Chevy Cobalt worth?

I have a 2008 Chevy Cobalt that my grandmother gave to me because she doesn’t drive anymore. I don’t need a car, so she told me to sell it and keep the money. I’ve never sold a car before, so I’m not sure what to charge. How much is a 2008 Chevy Cobalt worth?
