Should I sell my car back to the dealer or sell it privately if I have buyer's remorse?
Is it better to sell a car back to the dealer or sell it privately? I bought a car about a month ago from a dealer, but I'm having significant buyer's remorse.

“If you sell the car back to the dealer, you’ll get a lower value for your car. This means you could still owe on the loan and not have anything to show for it.
If you sell to a private individual, you’ll get more money, but you’ll have to do all the legwork to find a buyer. So both have benefits and drawbacks.”
