Default Best website to search for used cars

Usually buy new but I've been looking online for an inexpensive used car to use for commuting with no luck. Craigslist seems to be have very few cars listed by private sellers and everything that looks goods ends up having a salvage title. Autotrader seems to be all dealers. Are there any decent sites to find cars from private sellers?

I searched a few months back and only craigslist had by owner used cars for the most part. Cargurus and autotrader have them occasionally but they seem to want top dollar. I have found some good deals on Craigslist cars but they come and go quick. I checked several times a day.

I have tried a few different sites but I think Auto Trader is the best. You can get very specific on what you are looking for. They also have a classic website for older cars.
