  2. Add year filter to SearchTempest

    Having the year filter hidden on SearchTempest doesn't really make sense. It's hard to tell when it's still being applied or not, or how to turn it back on again. We plan to add the year filter directly to SearchTempest soon. Vote for this idea if you'd like to see it done sooner rather than later!

  3. Filter out deleted craigslist ads

    A majority of the results on craigslist, once clicked on, have been removed from the author/deleted. SearchTempest should do a better job at making sure those results do not show up in the search.

  5. Add Newer Blog Content

    Your blog posts are from one person and all show a date of July 30, 2015. Diversify your writers and get current content or link to current content like hot lease deals for the current month or 5 fun used sedans to get for under $7000, etc. I found your page via tv ad which means you've probably boosted your marketing budget, but don't blow the new lead generation by having old content. It makes the website seem dated even if the search functions are new.

    Our main focus will always be the search tool rather than the blog, but as it happens we just signed on a new blog writer and should have new posts coming out at least every couple of weeks starting in June! (And most of them will be directly related to our core focus of used car buying.) Hope you like it!

  7. Option to filter new listings

    Have an option to filter out new results. It's inconvenient and time consuming to surf through pages and pages of results on such a large database. There should be a button that can provide viewing options for new listings and/or listings posted in the last ___ days.

  8. Make it so people can submit their own ads

    Since the AutoTempest used car search only aggregates car ads from other sources at the moment, we have no way you can add your own car ad. We're planning to make it so you can list your car directly with us in the future though! If you'd like to see this feature added soon, vote for it!

    Private postings on Cars.com are now shown on AutoTempest (or will be in a couple of days), so the best way to post your own vehicle on AutoTempest is now to post it on Cars.com! You can do that using the ‘sell’ link at the top of our homepage.

  9. Add an option to filter by date posted

    Filter results to only results posted in the last X days. This filter already exists on SearchTempest.

    Because we the SearchTempest “Combined Results” mode is powered by Google, we can’t currently filter by price. If you want to be able to filter by price, try using the “Direct Results” mode, which gives you all the search options natively available on craigslist.

  11. Should be able to sort by date posted across all sites searched

    There needs to be a way to see the most recently posted vehicles

    Thanks for the suggestion Carolann! Because of how we search craigslist on SearchTempest, we can’t actually filter craigslist results by price, image, or many of the other filters that are supported directly on craigslist when in SearchTempest’s Combined Results mode. However, if you switch to SearchTempest’s Direct Results mode using the button above the results, you can filter by all the filters that craigslist supports. Direct Results is a little more complicated than Combined Results, but it gives you much more control over the results that you see. Hope that helps!

  13. Add AND / OR Operators

    have and/or search function

  15. Search by Type instead of Make/Model.

    I want a pickup truck. I don't care whether it's a Ford, Chevy, whatever. I also don't care whether it's a 1/2-ton, 3/4-ton, or 1-ton.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.
