Searching eBay Motors

If you're looking for cars, trucks, boats, powersports, parts & accessories, or other vehicles, you can find them on eBay Motors. eBay Motors includes some of the search features you find on eBay, plus additional search options tailored specifically to vehicles.

Here are some of the ways you can search eBay Motors:

Type of Search

Description

Search all of eBay Motors

Searches through all vehicles and parts & accessories listed on eBay Motors. You can search by keyword, title and description, category, price range, and more.

Category search

To search a specific area, choose an area from the drop-down menu, such as Boats. You can search by make, model, year, and location, in addition to searching by keyword, title and description, and completed listings (listings that have ended).

Items by seller

Searches for items that a particular seller is selling. You can choose to include completed listings.

By item number

Searches for a specific item number. You can find a vehicle or part by typing the item number into the search box to go directly to that vehicle or part listing.

By distance from you

Finds vehicles near you that are listed in Motors Classified Ads or Local Market. This way, you can see the vehicle before buying and you don't have to worry about shipping. You can usually meet the seller and may be able to negotiate the price.

As with other Classified Ads, your purchase is outside of eBay, so you won't be able to use eBay Feedback or problem resolution services.

  5. To shop for Classifieds, you'll see Classified Ad in the search results listing description.

    • You may also see a Local Classifieds tab, which displays only local classified listings.

  6. When you find a vehicle you like, give the seller a call, send email, or enter any personal information they've requested so they can contact you.

To start with just a category:
  1. Click Motors at the left side of most eBay pages.

  2. In the search section near the top of the page:

    • Enter a keyword in the search box.

  3. Under Preferences in the left-hand column, select the number of miles you're willing to travel to pick up your car, and enter your ZIP code.

Finding parts that fit your vehicle

Parts compatibility gives you an easy way to find the right parts for your specific car, truck, motorcycle, or boat. Sellers list their parts with detailed compatibility information. When you search for a specific part, the listings that are displayed in search results include a new tab that lists all compatible vehicles.
