Yes, the only charge is the $5.00 listing fee. From their FAQ section:

I sold my 65 Lemans convertible through Craigslist. As stated by others, there is no fee other than the $5 posting fee.

However, be prepared for an onslaught of scammers!

Don't be surprised if you get a 1099 as FB is looking at selling a car as a business for you.

They can send all the 1099's they want, selling a car isn't a business.

You may not consider it a business, but if the IRS receives 1099's, they will consider it income!

1099 is only from a company or service that processes money/payments for you, FB, CL etc will not & does not send 1099s unless they handled the payment. however, on a cash sale like selling a car, you are supposed to report that as income to the IRS, yes most people dont especially when its a cash sale, but if you take a check or wire xfr, there is a paper/electronic record of it.

as jamesq said, you dont have to be a "business" to have a 1099 sent, any company or payment service that handles $600 or more will generate a 1099 with the new laws put in place by the current administration.
