Through the eBay app, users can view vehicles they have parked in the eBay Garage, eBay’s online community and personalization platform where drivers have saved more than 223,000 public profiles complete with images of their vehicles. Users can favorite other profiles, find merchandise for the vehicles saved in their eBay garage, and search for videos and local events.
