What's New

Version 5.8

You can now customise your search to exclude vehicles that have been written off because of damage from an accident, fire or flood. Insurance companies categorise the level of damage as C, D, S or N. If you want to include written off vehicles in your search, they’ll be clearly labelled and you can tap to find out more.

If you have any concerns about the history of a vehicle, use our vehicle check – you’ll find it in the app menu.

Annoying notifications


Had loaded up a saved search and thought it would be useful to get notifications sent should any new cars get added, but started getting them virtually every day even if no changes. Some of the ‘changes’ were for sponsored ads outside of my search criteria and therefore not relevant to me. Also started getting notifications asking me to tell them details about my current car to get a valuation. I never asked for this. I am very picky when it comes to my phone beeping at me so try to keep noise down to a minimum, but unfortunately Autotrader have gone the way of so many other companies who can’t resist sending a flood of messages as soon as you give them an opening. Still use the app, which is generally very good (although some enhancements to the filtering would be good) but please sort out your notifications.

Blockbuster and Netflix


People now look back at Blockbuster and Kodak as businesses that didn’t see the future coming, when you look at the popularity of Autotrader magazine back in the 90’s it’s be hard to think a publisher could switch to being an amazing digital organisation.

I’ve loved Autotrader since those paper magazines with the cars in the little square adverts to what it is today. I’ve probably spent 3 years of my life on Autotrader haha but the app and website make car browsing the addictive pleasure it should be.

Good app, few major issues


* Saving searches with monthly payment doesn’t work. Retrieving the saved search forgets the monthly + deposit values. Sometimes it forgets the colours, too.

* Some people list 4 doors, others 5 doors for the same exact car. Why not let people pick “min 4 doors” instead of having to do separate searches? No way to avoid a myriad of unwanted 3-door cars otherwise.

* I might be interested in 2 models based on my budget. Why can’t I select 2 models for a given manufacturer instead of having to do separate searches?

* Why do you reset everything if I leave the app for a minute or so? So frustrating having to start over, sometimes due to the app sending me to the browser to complete some of the activities required.

* +1 on the need to remove previously damaged cars from all searches, as mentioned by others
