SAN JOSE, CA – eBay Motors has sold its three millionth passenger vehicle in the United States. The milestone vehicle is a 2002 Ford F-250 pickup truck purchased by Patricia Weidler of Otego, N.Y., to help her husband, Dan, start his own construction business.

The couple bought the pickup from eight-year eBay veteran David Pelis, of Pelis Auto Sales in Northampton, Mass. In celebration of the purchase, eBay Motors reimbursed the Weidlers, plus provided $3,000 in parts and accessories to help get their construction company started.

Weidler said her options were limited shopping for a car in their rural town. She went to eBay Motors to search outside the immediate area and feels she saved more than $5,000 by shopping on the site, purchasing the truck for only $8,886.

A passenger vehicle sells on eBay Motors every 56 seconds. Recent enhanced search capabilities and other vehicle research tools have simplified the purchase process for buyers.
