AutoTempest

  1. 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.

  2. 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!

    For now we’re going to focus on the web app, as we feel our time is best spent adding features there. If you’re interested in a mobile app specifically though, please comment with the specific features you’re looking for that the web app doesn’t offer. (Please note that you can add a shortcut on your homescreen to open the current web app like you would open an app.)

  4. 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.

  5. Allow city, state instead of just zip codes

    Please code the basic search line to allow city, state instead of just zip codes. I am looking at buying a used car outside the rust belt and I keep having to a zip code search first.

    Hi Jim,

    Since we currently search multiple sources, we aren’t able to make one big RSS feeds containing all the results. You can get RSS feeds for the craigslist results only by clicking “Feeds for this search” in the top right of the SearchTempest window that’s opened when you click the craigslist source on AutoTempest. We are looking at various ways we can notify users when a new ad that matches their search is posted :)

    Hope this helps!

  7. I'd Like to see a search by VIN feature where the results are all similar vehicles of the same year or a range of years.

    Enter the VIN number in order to populate vehicles that are the same make model (trim and year can be set on a spectrum).

  9. I would switch to AutoTempest from cars.com if you offered the ability to filter by interior color.

  10. Allow to filter searches by number of cylinders

    Filter search results by number of cylinders, or, even better, engine layout (e.g. I6, V6, H6, rotary, etc.)

  11. Save individual results

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

  14. Small Truck Option

    I'd like to see the single Truck category be split into small and full size (or large). (Canyon, Tacoma, Ranger, etc)

    right now i'm having to type in the model of every small truck and an option for that would be much nicer to have.

    I see what you mean. Unfortunately since we don’t get that data from our sources, I think the only way we could do it would be something similar to what you’re doing—we’d need to keep a list of all the small vs large truck models. Might look into it at some point if this idea is popular.

  15. Add Carsforsale.com to the searched websites list

    Carsforsale.com is a strong website for classic car enthusiasts and could draw in more usage of autotempest if you put it in. Love your website guys' website! Thanks!

  18. report bad listings

    There are too many vehicles listed as manual when they are in fact automatics. This is an extreme annoyance when searching for a manual as you must also go into the listing, instead of just through the search list, and look at pictures to confirm it is truly a manual. It would be a good idea to also request why the report of a bad listing is being made.

    That’s a good idea. I especially like the idea of flagging wrong transmission type or other wrong info, either for us to review, or maybe to filter automatically somehow (without allowing for abuse). We’ve got a few other things on the go for now, but will definitely keep this in mind.

  19. Favorites and Rejected Options

    Often times I find myself looking at the same car twice before discovering the same feature/flaw which caused me to eliminate it from my prospects in the first place. So, much like a "favorites" option, it would be great if there was a "rejected" option. Perhaps even in list form so people can go back through their rejected vehicles later to see if they'd missed something.
