    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.)

  2. Autotempest mobile app

    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.)

  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. 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.

  6. 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. 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!

  9. Add Offerup.com as a source

    Or code your site to offer other newer or slightly less popular car listing site results if you still can't find the car you're looking for with the core listing sites. I know I've experienced that with AutoTempest and debated whether or not it was really worthwhile for me to keep using AT.

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

  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.

  16. "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…

  17. Truck indepth search needed!!!

    This site seriously needs more in depth truck options. There isnt a 2x4 or 4x4 option, no regular cab, extended cab, crew cab option or long bed, short bed, motor options. Having these options would help narrow down searches and save customers time....just helpful info from a dealer that deals with this on the daily

    Agreed. We will be adding the drive type (2wd, 4×4 etc.) soon. The others are a bit trickier as our sources don’t currently provide that information, but we do support advanced keywords, so you could search for something like

    “extended cab” OR “crew cab”

    using the keywords field, for instance.

  18. 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!

  19. 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.

  20. 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.

    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.
