  2. 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.

    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. Add Hemmings Motors as a source

    We know, Hemmings is a blatant omission from our current list of sources. Vote for this to see Hemmings added as a source sooner rather than later!

    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!

  9. Add title status to filter options. Seeing salvage/rebuild/branded titles clogs up the results. It renders the site unusable for my needs.

    With all the recent floods, there are TONS of vehicles popping up everywhere that have titles one can't finance a vehicle with.

    Please add this so more people can use this site. To me, this makes the site useless for used vehicle searches.

  10. Save individual results

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

    We would definitely like to expand to other geos in the future, and the UK would probably be top of the list. Before that though, we have a number of improvements we want to make to the current site. (In particular, we’ve got some new filters to add, and our model matching isn’t as good as we’d like it to be yet.)

    In the meantime, you could try using our other site, www.searchtempest.com. It will let you search craigslist and eBay worldwide. (Although it does use a google custom search rather than direct links to search craigslist outside North America, so it won’t always catch everything.)

  12. Engine cylinders

  13. Refine

    The "Refine Search" function should search what is asked. I looked for all Lexus with a manual transmission only which should be a smaller number since they are rare. It included ALL Lexus that did not specify it's transmission in their listings, which was a huge number of ads.

    That’s a tough one because different people expect different things. Some people won’t want to match any matching vehicles, even if it means having to go through some that don’t match. Others are in your camp. The majority of vehicles do list the correct transmission, so it may be that a specific dealer or group in your area is mislabeling a lot of vehicles. If you’d like to email us through our contact page with the search link we could look into it in more detail.

  14. How bout adding trim? Keywords don't work.

    I tried adding a specific trim level of the vehicle I searched for. I wound up getting every vehicle BUT the one I wanted. After sifting through that spam, I gave up. Good luck. Pretty worthless without that ability. I personally, don't have the time or patience to do what a simple program can do pretty easily

    Currently when there are different model names used in different regions, we try to stick to the US model names, so the YJ would be searched via Wrangler. To get YJ models specifically, you could set the min and max years to 1986-1995.

    If you’re specifically looking for models produced outside the US and sold as YJ rather than Wrangler, please choose ‘Other Jeep model’, and then enter YJ. It does appear that we should remove TJ from the list though, for the same reason.

  16. 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!

  20. Missing Model: 2012-2016 Accord Plug-in Hybrid

    The 2012-2016 Accord Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) is missing as a distinct model from the Accord Hybrid

    OK, looks like I was wrong. The PHEV version was introduced for 2014 (and discontinued after 2015), but they kept selling the non-plug-in version alongside.

    It also looks like a number of our sources have the hybrids listed under regular ‘Accord’, not ‘Accord Hybrid’ specifically’. So for now, I would suggest searching the ‘Accord’ model, and adding “hybrid” and “plug-in” to your keywords.

    We are planning to add a ‘fuel type’ filter soon, and will look into whether we can differentiate between non-plug-in and plug-in hybrids. We’re also looking at adding a ‘trim keywords’ field, which would allow you to search for ‘plug-in’ in the model or trim names, as opposed to anywhere in the description (where you will also get silly things like “aux plug-in”). Hoping to have those ready before long, along with sorting out the model inconsistency.
