Doc's eBay Motors Sucks Blog

Community Search: eBay Motors Has Become A Joke

Another gripe about eBay Motors layout and search in two forum topics. More complaints of search queries returning useless junk. And a couple other tidbits.

Topic 1: Ebay Motors has become a joke. Is anyone from ebay listening? I am curious how many people are utterly frustrated with the revised ebay motors layout. EVERYONE I have spoke to feels the same way – you have turned ebay motors into a useless piece of **bleep**.

Topic 2: Ebay motors is ruined. Whoever came up with the new format sucks. Cant even stand car shopping on there anymore. Cant even use the classic site.

Then theirs this: NASCAR and eBay Motors. Though eBay Motors has been a sponsor of NASCAR broadcasts on Fox, now they’re the primary sponsor of Ryan Newman’s number 31 car in their top cup series (this weekend’s Martinsville race). Not an inexpensive endeavor to say the least.

Some things never change: Seller representing a FLOOD DAMAGED vehicle as “theft recovery.” A seller is misrepresenting a flood damaged 2008 Dutchmen 26L travel trailer as a “theft recovery.” This 2008 Dutchmen 26L, VIN 47CTDEN238G527668, was sold at Insurance Auto Auction (IAAI) Kansas City, KS on November 22, 2017, Lane A item 4013, stock #20858833, primary damage FLOOD, secondary damage left side. The seller has listed the unit as a “theft recovery” with a non-refundable $500 “deposit” at end of sale.

From the NASCAR topic: “Geared directly to the Do-It-Yourself viewers, they’ll be able to easily visit eBay Motors to virtually access an unlimited selection of parts to repair or upgrade their own vehicles.”

I’ll have to cruise over to eBay Motors and video screen capture their search results.. Though a search within their parts and accessories category for 1986 Lincoln power window motor produced accurate results. With the exception of cable style regulators didn’t start until 1987 new body style.
