NATIONWIDE - Motobidia.com - Your Ticket to the Car Dealer Auctions

Motobidia.com is a fairly young site (less than a couple years old) offering a unique service. They list relatively low mileage vehicles still under manufacturer's warranties that are about to be sold by dealer auction. Search their list of cars from Acura, Audi, BMW, Infiniti, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz or Porsche, register and bid. If you win this first auction, after receiving a 10% security deposit, Motobidia will attempt to acquire the car at the actual dealer auction. If successful, you pay the balance and the car is shipped to you. See the 'How It Works' page for full details.

Fast, well designed web site. Lots of questions answered on the FAQ page. Easy, secure registration; not too nosy. VINs revealed and free AutoCheck vehicle history report for registered users. Exterior and interior photos. Plus, free shipping!

As of December 2007, less than 100 cars listed. Only 7 high-end brands. Testimonials would help alleviate concerns over legitimacy.

How to:

  • Search for a car
    Select the year range you're interested in and choose a make, model or body style (or just leave everything blank to find everything or only enter a make to find all cars from one manufacturer) and click on the search button. Click on 'View details' or the photo on the list page to see all details available for that car.

  • See all makes and models
    Any model underlined on this page is currently available.

NATIONWIDE - Find Me A Car Auto Sales, LLC - Vehicle Locator

As well as selling used cars through an EBay store Findmeacar.com also acts as an auto broker. Their custom search form allows you to detail exactly what you are looking for in a used vehicle.

The search form is pretty good and allows you to indicate many characteristics on your desired car. The site's EBay store has a good reputation and the firm is registered with the Better Business Bureau Online.

The search form is not on a secure page and no turnaround guarantee is given.

How to:

  • Search for a car
    Fill in as much of the form as you feel is necessary (in terms of the car you are looking for), put in your personal information and click on Submit Form.

Overall Rating: 6/10E-Commerce Rating: 4/10

In fairness to the other listings in this category I must point out that this is not the site to come to if you are looking for an economical, practical and reliable family car. This site deals exclusively in exotic and fanciful vehicles some of which cost more than most of us will MAKE in our entire lifetime! So if you're looking for something to get you to work each day and into the countryside with the family on the weekend this is not the site for you.

That being said - if you are seriously searching for that collectable vehicle this is the place to come. The Wanted Submission Form is not secure but does come with a turnaround guarantee and allows you to indicate quite well what you are looking for (and one presumes that you aren't using this site unless you know exactly what you are looking for).

Good configuration form that does require typing many of the characteristics of the car but this is because configurators may not exist for many of these specialized vehicles. There is a turnaround guarantee of 24 hours.

The form, which asks for quite a bit of personal information, is not secure. There is no toll free or online (live) help available at the Car Experience site.

How to:

  • Search for a car
    Input as much information about the car you are looking for as possible. Input your personal details and click on Submit Form. A search fee of $500 is charged with an express search (which is completed in 3 days) will cost $1,000. After your search form is received a sales assistant will contact you to get more details and discuss how you wil pay your search fee.

NATIONWIDE - BetterCarBuy : Great deals on cars & trucks, for BC & Alberta

Since American buyers can purchased used cars in Canada I've included this site in the American Used Brokers category. There's nothing particularly noteworthy about this site - its form to get your car search started is very basic - but there are so few used brokers with a presence on the Internet it is included here. On the positive side the search request form is secure.

A secure form to get your search for a used car going.

The configurator on the search request form is very, very basic - the only thing you choose from a drop down list is the manufacturer - everything else you type in. There is no turnaround guarantee given - when will you hear back from these people?

How to:

  • Search for a car
    Indicate as much detail about the car you are searching for as possible, fill in your personal information and click the Send button.
