As of November 6, 2013, the Craigslist For Sale sections no longer allow external links in ads. Over the past few months, Craigslist has made some significant changes to their For Sale sections and yesterday they made their biggest. It’s a change that will profoundly affect how many dealerships post on Craigslist.
Craigslist no longer allow external links in any ads. A reader may cut and paste a text link, but that will obviously result in substantially less ‘click-through’ than previous ads. As with Craigslist’s earlier changes, this adjustment further reinforces that a post must contain all the relevant information for a vehicle. [keep reading]

Disruption is hard. When I joined Mojo Motors a year and half ago, I thought we were going to tear the used car industry a new one. Boy was I sort-of right.
Shopping for a used car is a pain. It’s hard to find the right car, track prices, and get a good deal without spending a ton of time and fielding a lot of calls. We built a solution at Mojo Motors that really helps people buy a used car. We had to take care of our dealer partners too, and we thought we had. You see we charged them whenever a Mojo member purchased a car. Sounds fair right? [keep reading]
Like most of my coworkers at Mojo Motors, I’m a car nut, though I might have the ‘itus a bit worse. You see I’ve been obsessed since I was a kid. For 7 years I ran an automotive performance shop, did a fair bit of racing (and crashing), and just generally got my hands dirty.
Like any good gear head, I like racing, but it’s always been more about the cars than the sport. I follow NASCAR, but from a technology standpoint it just doesn’t do it for me. Formula One however, is what really gets me going. The thing is, Formula One is also really, really boring.
That being said, I’ve been able to look past the boringness, lack of competition, and lack of action (passes in F1… not so frequent) because the cars are so damn cool. 1300lbs, 900 horsepower, carbon fiber construction, crazy aero – it’s got it all. I mean, the steering wheel alone would confuse an astronaut (see below for evidence). I’ve made the track to Montreal Canada numerous times to attend the Grand Prix du Canada and it’s always worth it. The sound of an F1 car alone is worth the price of admission.
This week’s new car is the 2012 Nissan Versa S base model. The Versa is the least expensive new car you can buy, and the MSRP listed below is the vehicle’s absolute lowest price. Needless to say, this means the car you’re getting is bare bones; an automatic transmission will cost you more, and most additional features are not even options on the base model. One significant advantage is the car’s excellent fuel efficiency, a combined 31 mpg. The Versa will certainly get you from one place to another, but it won’t give you much else. However, by taking advantage of the Mojo price, we bet you can get a lot more for your money! First, let’s take a look at the Nissan and its specs:
2012 Nissan Versa S (Base)
Engine: 1.6L 4-Cyl Manual
Power: 109hp and 107tq
Fuel economy: 27 city/36 hwy
So for around $10k you can buy a compact sedan with virtually no standard features. That doesn’t seem like the smartest use of your money. Instead, keep the same budget but get yourself a much nicer ride! Let’s see a few examples of the great variety of vehicles for the same price or less on Mojo… More
This week’s new car is the 2011 BMW M3 Coupe base model. The M3 is a great car for driving enthusiasts who long for excellent performance and handling, and sheer automotive excitement. Its 414hp V8 engine will make your heart race and your knuckles turn white! However, with a price tag around $60k, buyers may feel they are not getting enough interior enhancements, and adding options quickly becomes very pricey. The M3 is a beautiful car with terrific performance and drivability, but by taking advantage of the Mojo price, we bet you can get a lot more for your money! First, let’s take a look at the BMW and its specs:
2011 BMW M3 Coupe (Base)
Engine: 4.0L V8 Manual
Power: 414hp and 295tq
0-60 in 4.2 sec
So $59k gets you a high-performance and head-turning coupe. However, if you could get the same level of performance without the hefty price tag, how quickly would you jump on that deal? Let’s see what powerful machines we can find for the same price or less on Mojo…
This week’s new car is the 2011 Toyota Camry base model. The Camry is a well-known player in the midsize family sedan market. It offers a smooth ride and good fuel-efficiency, but leaves some things to be desired. A manual transmission is standard in the base model, meaning you have to pay extra for automatic. Also standard is a 2.5L 4-Cyl engine that doesn’t impress most drivers. Additionally, the car is without a sunroof, leather interior, and navigation sytem. The Camry is a nice car, and absolutely acceptable as a family sedan, but by taking advantage of the Mojo price, we bet you can get a lot more for your money. First, let’s take a look at the Camry and its specs:
2011 Toyota Camry (Base)
Engine: 2.5L 4-Cyl
Power: 169hp and 167tq
Interior Space: 116.4 cu. ft.
So $22k gets you a solid, but not spectacular midsize sedan. However, now more than ever, Americans are choosing to support American auto companies instead of buying imported vehicles. If this is the way you shop, you’re in luck! We believe that for the same price as this Japanese entry-level sedan, you can ride in American luxury! Let’s see what we can find on Mojo…
Are you looking for a new midsize SUV? The Nissan Pathfinder is a great option with an attractive and well-appointed cabin with three-row seating and a generous amount of interior storage space. But as with many truck based SUVs, the Pathfinder’s fuel economy terrifies wallets everywhere, and its large size and heavy weight lead to poor driving dynamics. The Pathfinder is certainly a good family SUV, but by taking advantage of the Mojo price, we bet you can get a lot more for your money. First, let’s take a look at the Pathfinder and its specs:
Mojo Motors, the new online car shopping site that offers members-only prices on used cars and trucks from local dealers, and Adelie Studios, an industry leader in online marketing animated video production, are the 2011 Online Video Bronze Winners of the 32nd Annual TELLY Award in the automotive category. The winning video, “The Best Way to Buy a Used Car”, was selected among thousands of entries for their entertainment and originality. [keep reading]
This week’s new car is the 2011 Saab 9-3 2.0T Sedan. With a four cylinder engine, optional automatic transmission, and 105.3 in. wheel base, it’s a solid player in the entry-level luxury sedan market. Certainly a nice car, but by taking advantage of the Mojo price, we bet you can get a lot more for your money. First, let’s take a look at the Saab and its specs:
2011 Saab 9-3 2.0T Sedan
Engine: 2.0L 4-cylinder Auto
Power: 210hp and 221tq
Wheel base: 105.3 in.
So $32k gets you a nice but small luxury sedan. However, most luxury car buyers are looking for a roomier interior and a more powerful engine. If you’re going to spend this kind of money, you want the most comfort, power, and style you can get. So let’s see what we can get for the same price or less on Mojo…
