it's worth mentioning that ebay bundles in a good amount of fraud protection with its motor vehicle sales. there are a ton of scammers on craigslist, and you have to have a very good bs radar not to get ripped off, both as a buyer and as a seller. ebay holds your hand a bit more, but you pay a premium for it. i wonder if motoyard can become a happy medium.
Craigslist is a neat idea, but so terribly out of date that it is next to worthless. There are also very few craigslist pages, and none of them include central iowa. I'll stick with ebay for buying and local rags for selling.
