Subtle paid searches


Overall this app is a great companion to the website. I have found the calculator tools especially useful in helping myself and friends find cars within our comfortable price range and being informed walking into a dealership.

However, recently I have noticed that when I go to search sometimes the search terms (new/used, make, model, price, etc) change when I do my search, and typically these are cars I would never consider buying. For example, today I started a search for a Honda Accord but was confronted with search results for a Buick.

The first time this happened I thought it was just an error, but in the numerous times this has happened since I have noticed that whatever my search changes to happens to be the same make and model of the ad displayed at the bottom of the main search page. An interesting, subtle, frustrating, and very unwelcome way to force advertisements on your users.

Developer Response

Hi mwfreezeii! Sorry to hear about the issues you're having. We do prepopulate manufacturers in the homepage search criteria upon the initial load, but the criteria should not revert back to these after you've made changes. We recommend deleting and reinstalling the app to see if that helps. If not, please reply back with additional search terms (price, zip code, distance from zip), and we'll attempt to recreate for additional troubleshooting. Thank you!

Great app


Only one thing im not happy with is that you should be able to save the cars you like without having to open an account... i dont sell cars im just interested on them... im looking to buy a car in the future but i cant save them to compare prices and packages... on safari if i leave the page open i can save all the cars i want... if thats the case then theres no point of having the free app.... just saying... maybe it will help more

It's finding in the area!


It's great this app searches near bye so well. I love that there is an abundance of pictures. I did get very specific once and I'm not sure if it's because this app searches for just big sales or if dealers are not posting more modern and inexpensive vehicles. I did not find anything for chevy pickups in any price range in my area. I guess that's just how it is around here now. Anyway this app is definitely going to be very helpful and is on the way to becoming something for anyone to use.
