    How many people actually buy new cars on ebay? do they sell them through dealers, do people steal them, then sell them?

    I've seen a number of dealers put new cars for sale on eBay.

    21,000 - the car lists at 21,900. When do you think the was the last time people were willing to pay less than $1,000 under sticker for a Chevy compact? I wonder, do the rebates apply to this car?

    Sorry I didn't notice that.Why would someone try to sell a new Cobalt on ebay anyways?
    If that was the way to do it all the car lots would participate in this action.
    With a reserve on a new vehicle or any other vehicle, people feel limited.
    That is unless of course the reserve is low enough.
    People are looking for bargains for the most part.

    I bought my Intrigue off of Ebay.. The deal was that I would inspect it before buying it.

    I wouldn't buy a new Cobalt from someone on Ebay who hasn't sold one thing yet.

    I would never buy a new car on E-Bay. I cannot see the logic of a private party taking a bath on the price since anybody can find the invoice, subtract GM's current rebate and go from there. Besides, that car driven off the dealer's lot and titled, becomes used and the depreciation is instant. So, where is the money being made by the seller? And, to top it off, you live in Seattle and the guy is in Maine so how do you inspect the vehicle.
    E-Bay is good for classic cars since the car is selling to a minority of customers hence it presents the car to a larger customer base. But a new car can be found at the local dealership.

    This is dumb. If the price on Ebay gets close to the dealer price, why not just go to the dealer?
