    I'm in the market for a used car and am investigating the various online avenues (cars.com, autotrader.com, etc.). Suppose I buy a car from a private seller (as opposed to a dealer), how exactly do I get it home? I live in Manhattan and haven't owned a car for about 12 years, so I have neither insurance nor plates from another vehicle. Does anyone know the procedure for this?

    Since everyone on this board seems to be ebay-crazy, has anyone ever taken the plunge and bought a car on ebay? Good or bad experience?

    Thanks
    Dan

    See the following link for info on registration. Â You'll want to have insurance lined up immediately if you need full coverage. New York DMV vehicle registration info As for buying a car on ebay, it's a lot like buying any other big-ticket item. Â If you do your homework and the seller has not misrepresented the item, you can get a good deal. Â I know a lot about cars, but I would never buy a used car that had not been evaluated by a mechanic experienced with that particular make. Â Each model has so many little idiosyncracies that a "generalist" is unlikely to know and some of them can end up costing you lots of money. Â The $100 or so for a detailed inspection is more than worth it as far as I'm concerned. Regards, dan
