Used Jeeps can be purchased online through classifieds websites, such as Auto Trader and Cars for Sale. They can also be purchased from local and national auto dealers, such as Passport Auto. Internet auction sites such as eBay also feature listings for Jeeps.
Auto Trader contains listings for both new and used vehicles from dealers and private sellers located throughout the United States. After selecting either a general vehicle make, such as Jeep, or a specific make and model, such as a Jeep Rubicon, users must choose a geographic location to view the available Auto Trader listings on its website. Each listing contains pertinent information about the vehicle, such as a description of its condition, a list of its available features, one to several pictures of the car and contact information for the seller.
Individuals using eBay to search for used Jeeps need to take extra precautions to avoid scams, as the site does not vet its users beyond basic account verification. One of the ways eBay does help its customers gauge the trustworthiness of sellers is through its ratings system. Each customer has the option to rate and provide feedback after each completed transaction. If a seller has a history of scamming or deceiving other customers, users can read about it in the reviews.
