If it Ain’t Broken, Don’t Fix it
I agree with a prior review. AT was clean and generally simple. The best in my opinion. Not a bunch of hidden menus and options with overly complicate (IT nerdy) ways to use the tool. Competitor tools tend to overwhelm the user and are confusing to navigate. I’d set all of my advanced settings, multiple vehicles at times, and hit search. And, I’d save the search or vehicle(s) and periodically set alerts. If I were to improve anything - realizing AT must satisfy both the retailers/sellers and buyers experience - I’d continue efforts to only show vehicles asked for under set query parameters. Meaning, if I say Toyota Tundra CrewMax, under 75k miles, max $30k, within 25 miles, don’t show me vehicles that don’t match this criteria. It’s annoying and I abandon tools that do this. Asking the user if they’d like to see similar vehicles or those further out or more dollars, etc. would be fine - though essentially running a finite report criteria and getting back incorrect results is a pain. Clean, Simple, Accurate!
Very Good App, would like ability to hide results
Overall this app is great, it’s well set up and easy to navigate. We used it to find and purchase our new (to us) vehicle and are now searching for another.
The only thing I would like to see would be the ability to hide a listing. My specific reason for this is there isn’t a filter criteria for vehicles that have been reported as being a rental vehicle so if I could just hide them in my results of my saved search, that would suffice. This may also be helpful to other users who would like to “filter” out listings when they don’t specifically fall under an existing category. For example if someone didn't want to see listings from a specific dealership, or didn’t want to buy a car with aftermarket rims, or any other factor they may have that wouldn’t necessarily need a filter category created for, hiding a listing would be helpful. 👍
Glitchy, Poor results and too Expensive
I have been using Autotrader for years. The last few times I have used it not only is it glitchy and freeze up, but the quality of the results were not inclusive of many many other results found on other competing websites. Step it up or I will start my car searches where the results can be found. I have also sold a few cars on Autotrader. The last time I TRIED to sell a car I was SHOCKED how expensive it was. Tried it for a few weeks with only a few calls, all tire kickers. I put the same car on another site after a few weeks on Autotrader and we had ten calls in two days and the car was sold within a week. So, again poor results. Autotrader needs to lower the cost to list a car to solve their two biggest problems. 1)Not enough listings 2)because it’s to expensive to list a vehicle. Look, I think Autotrader has been the goto in car searches/selling over the years, but they got too big for their britches! Come back to reality Autotrader and realize you are getting your clocks cleaned cause you got greedy.......
