  1. Send notifications when a new listing is found for my search

    One of our most requested features has been to send a notification when we find a new listing for particular searches. We're constantly thinking about ways that we can make this a reality. Vote for this idea if you want to see it happen sooner rather than later!

      Wow, it’s been a while, hasn’t it! It hasn’t been mothballed, but it has been back-burnered in favor of a couple more pressing things. We’re working right now to improve keyword searches—we’ve already added support for positive and negative quoted phrases, and are planning to add full AND/OR logical searches soon. After that should be better classification of models and potentially trims, and THEN this is the next major feature planned after that.

      • Add a tool for searching enthusiast forums

        We know that some of the best listings on the web are found in enthusiast forums. Because there are so many of them out there, it would be infeasible to add them all as separate sources to the main AutoTempest search, at least at the moment. We're planning on building a separate search tool to search specifically for ads on enthusiast forums. If you'd like to see this feature added sooner rather than later, vote for it!

            • Add ability to search multiple models

              Currently, you can only search one model at a time on AutoTempest. We will eventually be adding the ability to search multiple models in one search.

                  Thanks for the suggestion! Currently the AutoTempest results page is mobile friendly, and we’re working on making the other pages mobile friendly as well. Once that’s done, we’ll make it easy to add an icon to your device’s home screen to quickly launch AutoTempest. If we find there are massive improvements that can be made by making a native mobile app as well, we’ll look into that then :)

                • Sort by savings on a car / pricing tool

                  sort by amount of savings. compare listing price with the national average price and display percentage saved by purchasing a given car. this way people looking for the best deal and not necessarily a particular car, could quickly sort through adds.

                    This is not a bad idea! It could end up being more difficult than it’s worth, but we’ll look into it.

                          Absolutely agree that we should have email alerts. We are working on some other priorities at the moment, but it is planned. Price change alerts are an interesting idea too, and one that we hadn’t considered before. I will add that to our list!

                        • Search Exclusion Tagging System

                          Add an "excluded from search" feature to slim down irrelevant results. For example, a tagging system. That way, when you search for any car within your budget, but know you don't want a Toyota, you aren't spammed with pages and pages of Toyota RAV4's before you can get to the good stuff.

                          • Make a tool to suggest models for people who don't know what vehicles to search for

                            Not everyone knows what car they're looking for, but they do know what types of cars they're looking for. We thought it'd be cool to have a tool that asks you a couple questions about what you need and want from a car, and then suggests certain models that fit your requirements. Vote for this idea if you think a tool like that would be useful!

                                  Can look into this. In the meantime you should be able to get there with keywords. Ie, select S5 as the model, then type sportback or -sportback in the keywords field depending on whether you want to find them or filter them out.

                                    It would be great to save interested cars in a workbook to compare and download.
