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.88 votes
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!31 votes
Autotempest mobile app
Make Autotempest into a mobile app.20 votes
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.)
Save individual results
It would be great to save interested cars in a workbook to compare and download.10 votes
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.10 votes
This is something we’re planning to do eventually. Only reason we haven’t done it yet is some other priorities we’re working on first.
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.10 votes
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.
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.9 votesunder 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.
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).8 votes
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!4 votes
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.3 votes
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.3 votes
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!
We’d love to work with carsforsale. Pleas consider reaching out to them to suggest it as well.!
Add a weight filter
Add a filter for cars that have a GVWR of 6000 lbs or more for tax incentives.2 votes
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.1 vote
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.
Sort cars by country or continent origin, Like: give me results for German cars.
I would like to search for Italian cars, German cars, USA cars, etc. This will pile up all in one result.1 voteunder review · AdminBrendan (Admin, AutoTempest.com) responded
That could be really handy having them grouped together like that.
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.1 vote
This is definitely something that’s on our radar; we have some other priorities that are higher, since bookmarks or something like Keep does work for this, but we agree that a feature like you describe here would be helpful!
Reorder saved searches
I currently have many saved searches, and would like to reorder them based on makes and models1 voteunder review · AdminBrendan (Admin, AutoTempest.com) responded
Great idea and would be a great addition to the site.
Please add a Right Hand Drive (RHD) search option. RHD cars in the USA are cheap, great for export, but finding them takes an age!

Have you tried using the keywords field to search? I would think searching for either “right hand drive” or RHD would find them all. You can do that like this:
“right hand drive” | RHD
