When Is A Police Car NOT A Police Car

When it’s an eBay Motors & Experian AutoCheck History Report pre-owned Police Car. If you haven’t heard the big news yet, eBay Motors leaped into bed with Experian AutoCheck. The False FRAME DAMAGE Specialists.. ๐Ÿ˜†

Together they will provide free vehicle history reports to prospective car buyers. This is a good idea, but i wonder why they they didn’t contract with CarFax?

I have looked at all the Ford retired Police Cars on eBay Motors and not one of them is listed as a Police Car in eBay’s FREE AutoCheck History Report.

I’m sure any knowledgeable licensed dealer will agree that CarFax is The authority on vehicle history reports. CarFax has the most sources of data available. CarFax also provides a lot of detailed service history from franchised dealers, oil change specialists, and other service facilities.

This is the result of eBay not knowing diddly about the car business and trying to run an automotive site.. They leap into bed with another company that don’t even know what a Police Car Is.. ๐Ÿ™„

Before this recent change – if a seller was a CarFax Dealer and had purchased a CarFax report for a vehicle in his inventory – clicking the history report tab on an eBay Motors listing would display that CarFax Report to the prospective buyer.

I have never had a consumer come on the lot and ask for an Experian AutoCheck, have you?

Wouldn’t you rather have a CarFax Report??

Just my two cents worth as usual. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Tx Car Dealer

    Is there a way to get an html code to void out the autocheck section on the ebay motors ad? It seriously hurts our business with their report on our vehicles and I’d like to see if I can embed a HTML code to hide it.

  2. Doc

    I doubt there is any way to defeat it.

    Are you a CarFax Dealer? If so you can screen capture your report and add it to your listing as an image.

    Snagit is what i use:

    Hope this helps.. ๐Ÿ™‚
