    Anyone here has any experience with buying or selling cars on Ebay?

    I would like to hear from both sides (SELLER/BUYER)

    I just dont see myself paying for a car that I haven't even test drove yet.....but apparently they do sell if not the service wouldn't be there still.

    I have a few cars for sale and was wondering about expanding my advertising to Ebay.

    Any input would be appreciated. Thanks

    my ex and I sold his Porsche on Ebay a couple years ago. A local bidder made arrangements to go and test drive it (we were storing it in LA while we lived in DC) and then he paid via check. It was all pretty easy. I did go in and counter bid to drive the price up a bit and I was very leery of taking a check (my ex insisted and, in the end, it was his $10k to lose) but there were really no hassles. So, there's one experience. :)

    Thanks for your input. What about the listing fee and the percentage that they charge once it sells?

    I bought a Lincoln Navigator off eBay without seeing it in person first. Needless to say it came with a 100k extended warranty so I wasn't too concerned about not driving it first. Bought it from a private party and got a steal on it. :)
