Anyone purchase knock sensors off ebay?

Hello all
Been a while since my last post. Just wanted to ask if anyone has purchased and had good luck with knock sensors for their Yaris off ebay? Got all kinds of different pricing NAPA's outrageous @ 187.00 echlin, 133.00 ATM. Toyota online @148.00 EBAY AS CHEAP AS 12.00?? Most recent PN# 89615-06010. previous PN#'s 89615-20090 and 8961502020. One of these older PN#'s is Ebay @ 12.00. Can anyone shine light on the subject? Appreciate the help. Forgot to mention ebay photo shows the actual part with country of origin (Japan) and correct PN# molded into the part. so seems legit.

You are taking a gamble buying auto parts, or parts for anything on ebay. The knock offs are everywhere. Knock off knock sensors....not in my Yaris.

It's a knock sensor cant really hate on it to bad 12$ seems a little cheap hahah but Id rather buy from rockauto/used junkyard one.
What's the worst that can happen if it malfunctions ur ECU will keep the motor safe so unless you have a different problem after it why not try.

You must be retired with a lot of time on your hands to take a chance on a used part. I don't have the time at this point in my life to do a repair job twice like this would one be should the used sensor fail after a month. I hope to be retired in three years probably will have more time to work on the old Yaris when needed. By the way, Happy New Year everyone!
