  1. 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.

  2. Create a market map

    Would love to see a market map. Number of cars within a distance kind of thing. More stats and nerdy stuff.

  3. add ability to exclude brands and models from a search

    I think a search feature that would be helpful when someone isn't searching for a make or model specifically but by option or make only, for example if you're looking for any 4x4 SUV but you know you don't want a Jeep product you can exclude that make.
    or searching for any toyota suv except for the CH-R you could exclude it from the search.

    That would be very helpful to have in the search filters. We're planning on adding multiple makes/model selection, this might be something that could be included alongside those. Keep an eye out for that feature in the future!

  4. Ability to hold the CTRL button to select multiple options from the dropdown menus.

    Currently when you select a color or other option from the dropdown menu the menu closes and you have to reopen it for each option you want to select. It would be much nicer & faster if we could hold the CTRL button down and the menus stay open so we can select multiple options quickly.

  5. 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!

  6. "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…

  7. Detailed Transmission Filter search

    I would like to see detailed transmissions search. Not only automatic or manual but also able to see - Cvt - 8 speed - 10 speed which manufacturer, - manual but is it 4 speed or 6 speed. And being able to filter the search for exact speed or model.

  8. Print the unique number of cars accross all partners for a given search criterias

    As a user, I would like to know how many unique cars there are across all partners for my research,
    So that I can better estimate how many cars in my search are in the overall market at a given time.

    I believe that using the tuple [Make, Model, Price, Year, Mileage] to guess if it's the same car across multiple partners would be sufficient. Would be better with VIN but no all ads display it.

    Love auto-tempest! I'm a developer myself and in the market for a new car and that idea is very convenient! I guess you cannot…

    Currently we do already deduplicate vehicles from different partners, so for thr most part anyngiven car should only be seen (and counted ) once.  (Though occasionally exceptions will slip through.)  We also already show a combined count of vehicles returned from all sources at the top of the page.

    What's missing is, it currently only shows the number that have been displayed; if there are multiple pages of results, the later pages won't be added to the count until they've been loaded. (This is because our back-end queries haven't actually pulled up those vehicles yet, so the front end doesn't know how many there are.) This was necessary in the past to keep the searches as fast as possible. However as search tools have progressed it's less important now. So we actually do have plans to add a complete count, not only of results, but also of remaining results for…

  9. Add filter for towing capacity

    It would be great to have a filter for towing capacity to compare between vehicles and see what's the best option for towing.

  11. 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!

  12. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. add the ability to filter out specific sellers.

    My results are full of flood and totaled vehicles, even when I sort by clean title. The ability to blacklist sellers would be fantastic, since it's just the one seller. They're 43 miles from me, but all the big cities are around 100miles away, so I can't change distance.

    While we don't have an explicit option to filter sellers, we do support negative keywords.  Is the dealer's name in the body of the ad?  If so, you could filter out any ads containing that word by putting it in the keywords prefaced by a minus sign, like

    -dealername


    Does that help?

  17. add abilty to restrict certain locations

    current where i live i get flooded with ads from Brooklyn, NY and have to scroll through a dozen ads to get to a different location. makes autotempest near impossible to find a car in my state thats not in Brooklyn

  19. The ability to change currency denominations

    I would like to be able to look at cars in CAD instead of USD. For those of us outside of the USA who are looking to buy a car there for personal or professional reasons, having the option to choose your own currency would be great!
