Dealers challenged by smartphone car buyers, from Detroit Free Press.
Billy Franklin recently bought a 2007 Chevrolet Suburban for $14,900 through eBay on his Android phone while eating dinner at Red Lobster in Traverse City.
The seller was in Brooklyn. Franklin, 38, and his wife were so satisfied with the deal that they stayed a couple nights in the Garment District, walked around Central Park and visited a couple decent restaurants. It was their first trip to the Big Apple.
No dealer. No test drive. No negotiating.
“That’s the first time I’ve bought a vehicle sight unseen,” Franklin said.
