eBay Motors Launches ‘Renew Your Ride’ Program

eBay Motors Launches ‘Renew Your Ride’ Program

Car enthusiasts can receive consultations from renowned builders, with a guarantee the parts will fit their vehicles.

eBay Motors announced a first-of-its-kind program that it says helps drivers keep their cars on the road longer. Taking place over Memorial Day weekend in Atlanta, the “Renew Your Ride” event offers in-person consultations with expert builders about how to extend the life of a vehicle – from classics and project builds to everyday models – using newly launched eBay Guaranteed Fit purchase protections. After their consultation, attendees will walk away with up to $200 toward their part or accessory purchase on eBay Motors.

Average new car transaction prices are up nearly 30% compared to 2020 (according to Kelly Blue Book), and in the face of high interest rates and affordability concerns, more shoppers are putting off buying a new vehicle, according to eBay Motors. Renew Your Ride reflects the increasingly popular choice to upgrade and modify a car rather than buy new, and offers real-world inspiration from renowned builders, including six-time GRAMMY-winning artist, entrepreneur, drift driver, and car builder T-Pain.

The self-proclaimed car lover recently worked with the crew from Donut, the automotive YouTube channel, to upgrade his beloved 1994 Honda Accord using parts backed by eBay Guaranteed Fit. The new purchase protections launched earlier this year, giving users more confidence when buying and selling parts and accessories on the marketplace. Shoppers can simply look for the ‘Fits’ checkmark on eligible listings to know they are getting the right part, or their money back.

Renew Your Ride is open to the public from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. ET, May 27-29 at 6569 Roswell Rd NE, Atlanta, GA, 30328.
