  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!

  3. 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.

  4. Save individual results

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

  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.

  6. 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.

    under review  ·  Tony Lei responded

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

  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. 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!

  10. Currently only 10 saved searches per email, limit needs to be MUCH higher

    Currently, I can only have 10 saved searches per email. This is frustrating and convoluted as most car enthusiasts enjoy more than 10 cars. Please allow us to save unlimited or at least 30-50 saved searches.

    For example, eBay and Realtor.com allows unlimited saved searches and its so convenient when I get email notifications of a product I've been waiting for comes on sale. OfferUp allows 50 I believe. There shouldn't be a limit for car enthusiasts!

  11. Be able to dismiss vehicles that are mislabeled or misrepresented so people don't have to keep moving through those in saved serches.

    In a saved search, 60%-70% of the specific trim I'm looking for are misrepresented or mislabeled by the various sellers (dealers and private). It would be nice to be able to dismiss individual cars that pop up in the results so people don't have to sift through them every time. (i.e. Remove this listing from future search updates)

    This is a feature we're considering, but it's going to be a bit, as we've got a few other things in the pipeline first. (At a minimum we'll need to have user accounts first, so there's somewhere to store the cars you've hidden.)


    Regarding that specific search, please consider submitting a support ticket; maybe we can clean up the results.

  12. new search is too limited/restricted

    Advanced search filters allowed for zeroing in on a desired model & features, now you can only do that for used vehicles. Please add advanced filters to New search.

  13. Search by number of seatbelts!

    Please please please add a feature to search for vehicle by number of seatbelts. There are a lot of SUVs that make models with an optional third row and it is incredibly tedious to look at each listing.

  17. Please Add "Made In" filter to search

    I would like to see models there were made in Japan for example (VIN starting with J) and this can be easily achieved with a "Made In" filter.

    Compare the starting letters of a VIN with the table in World manufacturer identifier and we can then search for cars that were manufactured in any country.

    Thank you!

  18. "No Accidents" Filter

    It's very frustrating looking for a clean titled vehicle only to click on an option, scroll down, and see the dreaded "Accident or Damage Reported".

    These vehicles should have a filter to be completely hidden. Many of the results are coming from cars.com, and this website has a very distinct and obvious section where damage is reported.

    Yeah, that could be annoying for sure.  Most accidents don't result in a totalled car or branded title, so if you're trying to filter out any car that's had an accident, that's not currently possible.  Unfortunately we don't currently have access to that information from most sources.  (The carfax information that appears on the Cars.com detail pages isn't included in the feed they send us.)  I'll certainly keep this request open though; maybe we can get that added in the future.


    In the meantime, if there are common phrases you're noticing in the vehicle descriptions that note there has been accident damage, you could filter those out with negative keywords or key phrases, using a minus sign followed by the word or phrase, like -"accident damage".  But as I said, the specific section you mentioned that's provided by Carfax doesn't appear to be part of the vehicle description that we…

  20. Add buttons to save vehicle to 'watch list', or to ignore vehicle in searches

    It would be nice when searching lots of cars in multiple searches to ignore certain cars, and to be able to review a car, and then save it for future consideration (maybe with a 7 day limit to keep the list fresh). This would be better than grabbing URLs and stuffing in Keep.
