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.72 votes
Make Autotempest into a mobile app.17 votes
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.)
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.9 votes
This is not a bad idea! It could end up being more difficult than it’s worth, but we’ll look into it.
It would be great to save interested cars in a workbook to compare and download.8 votes
Add an option to out selected filters to a RSS link that RSS Readers can read and alert user a used car has been listed6 votes
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!
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.5 votes
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.
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!
We’d love to work with carsforsale. Pleas consider reaching out to them to suggest it as well.!
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.1 vote
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.
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.1 vote
This is definitely something that’s on our radar; we have some other priorities that are higher, since bookmarks or something like Keep does work for this, but we agree that a feature like you describe here would be helpful!
Please add a Right Hand Drive (RHD) search option. RHD cars in the USA are cheap, great for export, but finding them takes an age!

Have you tried using the keywords field to search? I would think searching for either “right hand drive” or RHD would find them all. You can do that like this:
“right hand drive” | RHD
Allow the user to exclude specific makes and models from the search (for example, I am looking for an AWD hatchback newer than 2012, but I do not want a Subaru. The results are flooded with subarus.)1 vote
This is something we’re considering. In the meantime, you could achieve something close using negative keywords. If you enter this in the keywords field, it will filter out any post containing the word Subaru:
