  1. 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.

  2. Save individual results

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

  3. 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.

  4. 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).

  6. 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. 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.

  10. 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!

  12. "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…

  13. Add a Find a Hooptie Feature.

    Click the "Find a Hooptie" button and a random Hooptie shows up. Car must be over 15 years old and Tyler Hoovie has owned. At least something that is collectable. Car also must not be in mint or good condition.

  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?

  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. 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.

  20. 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.
