eBay Motors and General Motors Company today announced the extension of their first-of-its-kind promotion that enables consumers to shop new cars, crossovers and trucks online from participating California Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Pontiac dealers. The promotion, originally launched on August 11, has been extended through September 30. Customers can access the promotion at

Since the beginning of the program through August 30, shoppers visited dealers’ virtual showroom sites more than 1 million times and logged more than 1.4 million searches of GM inventory. In addition, nearly 4,000 new car buyers entered into negotiations online, over the phone and in person as a result of this promotion. At the conclusion of the California promotion, GM and eBay Motors will evaluate extending the program nationally, based on consumer demand and dealer feedback.

Complete program details including participating GM dealer inventory available through individual GM brand websites can be found at,,,, and

The promotion enables consumers to browse hundreds of vehicles in dealer inventory online, ask questions, negotiate prices, and arrange financing and payment to purchase select new 2008, 2009 and 2010 cars, crossovers or trucks online. Additional GM 2010 model-year inventory is being added to this extended promotion.

With more than 225 GM dealers in California participating, shoppers can expect to see a wide selection of new GM vehicles at competitive prices. Vehicles will be offered through eBay Motors’ traditional formats such as “Buy It Now” (where shoppers agree to pay the advertised price) and eBay’s innovative “Best Offer” option (where buyers indicate the price they are willing to pay and can negotiate online with the dealer for the vehicle).

The site also incorporates features that will allow consumers to compare pricing across models or participating dealerships throughout California, ask a dealer questions, and get tips and advice with a Buyer Checklist.
