AutoTempest

  1. Manual transmission

    When I try to filter for manual transmission, I'm getting results from Carvana that clearly have automatics.

    Example:

    This issue has been corrected by Carvana. If you still notice any incorrect listings for either automatic or manual transmissions showing when they shouldn’t please let us know.

  2. Do not include Make in craigslist filters

    I would love to add example screenshots, but all file types are not supported, GIF, PNG, JPEG, BMP - it makes it hard to add relevant screenshots.

    Seems like the craiglist links do not always work. For example the autotempest craigslist link will populate the make and model filter in craigslist. This is a problem because a lot of posters do not list the make, so few results are returned. You can replicate this by searching "excursion" vs. "ford excursion" in the make and model filter. Consider dropping the make when auto-populating CL filters

  3. Add Craigslist specific search terms

    Craigslist listings for Ford F-series trucks often do not include the hyphen in the title (i.e. "F250" instead of "F-250"). I suggest adding the non-hyphenated version to the search terms to show all listings available.

    Filtering by title is now an option on AutoTempest.com. The filter can be found under the Advanced Search on our home page, and alongside the rest of the filters on our results page.

  5. AUTOMOTIVE Journalist and Linux Software enthusiast with Ideas

    Good afternoon,

    My name is Malcolm Dean. I would like to enquire about job opportunities and a couple of Ideas for Car Trek. First off I have a Linux software background with a background in auto sales and management. Is Autotempest.com looking for employees? Second I have published articles online and for magazines.

    Second

    Ed, Tyler, and Tavarish need a fourth series involving the "Best offroad SUV". It's an Idea that the trio hasn't explored and a seven -part series would be fantastic. A seven-part series with the "Best depriciated" SUV. Thank you for your time. Happy new year's,

    We’re not currently hiring at this time but could be in the near future, keep an eye out for job posting from us!

    We’ll pass along the suggestion for CarTrek to the team! Keep an eye out from them, heard there could be another season in the works :)

    Ah, thanks for pointing that out. We actually shouldn’t list either one, since they’re internal BMW designations. Instead you’ll want to search 3-series and choose the year range you want.

  8. A quick 'thanks'

    Hey guys,

    Just wanted to express my appreciation to you guys for your efforts with the site. I've been using it for a couple of years now, and over the past year I've bought two cars through it. I'm pretty specific on what I want in a vehicle, and I've been fortunate to find both a 2018 Subaru Forester Limited with a 6-speed manual, as well as a 2011 Ford Hennessey Velociraptor through the site. I absolutely love both vehicles, and I wouldn't have found them without AutoTempest.

    More recently, I appreciate your supporting the car community through sponsorship of…

    It would be nice if they had it listed for faster times because this is a new car

  10. Add different trims to cars (I.E Camaro LT1, SS, ZL1)

    As the title says, there should be an easier way to search for specific trims and models instead of just the car itself

  11. Better Search options

    You need to add an option, Clean Title, Rebuilt Title, or Salvage Title, so people can find what they are looking for more easily. I'm looking for a clean titled vehicle, yet there are tons of rebuilt & salvage vehicles I have to weed through, very frustrating. Also add an option for 4,5,6,8,10,12 cylinders etc... Also add Corvette options 1LT,2LT or 3LT, Jaguar F-type options S,R etc. Email Alerts also for saved searches and newly listed vehicles.

    We now have search filters on AutoTempest.com for Title and Cylinders, both can be found on the Advance Search section on the homepage search form and on with all the filters on the results page search form.

    Searching for the models/trim mentioned using the options Nathan mentioned previously is still your best options for searching for those.

  13. Ability to exclude some sites

    I was enjoying the site until just today when I started getting flooded with results from "BringATrailer". They don't appear to match my search criteria (e.g., got a Lamborghini when searching for SUVs) and are NOT helpful.

    You already can turn off individual sources, using the Sources control at the top of the results page.

    The issue with Bring a trailer in particular is that they don’t support most of our filters (including bodystyle). We’re going to look at hiding their results by default when unsupported filters are entered.

    We already have filters for years and transmissions. There isn’t a lot we can do about it when sellers misidentify things though, unfortunately. (I agree it’s annoying when people seem to think anything with flappy paddles is a “manual”.)

    M3 CS is a trim level of M3, so to search that please choose M3, and enter CS in the trim field.

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

    You can now filter by Interior Color on AutoTempest.com. The option is located under Advanced Search on the home page and alongside all the other filters on the results page.

  17. 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.)

    This feature is now live on AutoTempest.com. On the advanced search form on the homepage, or the search form on the results page there’s an option to select number of cylinders. It’s multi-select too so you can select multiple options instead of just one.

  18. Continue doing things like CarTrek as part of your marketing.

    CarTrek was so enjoyable to watch, and definitely improves your brand recognition! Your name being out there on the videos I watch makes me remember to go here and use the site, and may in fact be where I found out about the site in the first place. I buy cars more than the average person, and your site is useful.
