Way back in February, General Motors announced it would be listing all of it Certified Pre-Owned vehicles on eBay Motors, and it took until now to actually make that happen. To go along with GM, Chrysler and Lexus have also joined up, with eBay Motors making a special section of its website specifically for CPO vehicles. The new site, which can be found here, went live yesterday and is sponsored exclusively by Lexus. It's also provided at no cost to any dealer looking for another outlet to advertise its inventory.
A quick check of the new hub shows that both eBay's classic auction-style listings and regular classified ads are listed together. The site's search functionality allows users to find vehicles located near their zip code, meaning it should prove awfully easy to find that brand-spanking-used Chrysler Sebring you've been foaming at the mouth for.

      Anyone else remember when eBay was actually fun and was bidder/seller friendly? All the recent moves seem to be more shareholder friendly than for sellers or even buyers.

      The last cars I sold on eBay were two Gen III Camry Wagons, the pair went for $400, 1992 sans motor and 1995 sans front air bags and a lot of front end parts. I guess I should have sold them as Certified Parts Cars?

      Certified vehicles as a previous comment stated run as much as 5-6000 more than can be found if one is persistent with their shopping. Extended warranties can be purchased for as little as $1000 to cover drive train problems.As a way to help control the resale value of the tons of trades and lease turn ins that manufacturers have on their hands, CPO was created to help build value. Ebay has done nothing but dilute the value of its auction's by adding these dealer cars and cpo vehicles. Being a public company - one must always find a way to appease shareholders - instead of staying the course with their original marketing plan and intent (i.e. craigslist) Live in the tidewater area? check out http://amerautoauction.com , a public auto auction in virginia if you want to find a good price and a good vehicle, for thousands less than ebay or at a dealer

      Darn, I was looking for a Certified preowned Ford Tempo and couldn't find one.

      In some cases, the extra warranty is very nice.
