Redefining Having it all

You get what you focus on..

This car is absolutely magical. I am awaiting the release of the keys into my hands in a hassle free experience. What this car respects about its partner (owner - thank you to the real conscious drivers who respected their innovative intentions to design and manifest this diamond of a car), it brings an elegance that is not only an acquired taste, it is also a unique experience in a rare jewel that even as I see more on our roads.. the car is always a delight to be in sync with. This car ignites inspiration within me to pursue my dreams and finally allowing myself to accept that I deserve this car. I thank you Hyundai FkA & Always known as Genesis Motors to me. This was always your plan with all your attempts to bring a Car with beautiful power, discerning ride comfort and an eye catching presence that when bystanders are in Alignment to see you refuel, they cannot turn away from a glimpse even from their Peripheral vision. Everything is reasonable and beautifully presented in the finished product. I look forward to performing on the stages for the new releases and even sharing design concepts. This is a birthday gift and my birthday has since past in May, that is not stop a thing. Let the fun begin (Genesis) 👌🏾👑 SHAA Jahaan

Lost its luster:(

BLT41567

I use this app daily for the past 5 years. I’ve seen it improve to the point of being a useful tool and then the most recent update destroyed some of the utility. I’m wondering if they are using a different software company? Anyway the most effective tool for me is the filter/features after defining the make and model. I need to be able to find the range of price of vehicles across the country to help with the research I do before purchasing and selling. I find a nationwide search of pricing helps me find the “real market” value far better than NADA or Bluebook etc. I miss the previous version of the software. Being able to quickly search across the US and see a picture “without selecting the specific” vehicle is very helpful in narrowing down the thousands of vehicles of which many are improperly listed. For example, if you search Ford F-150 king ranch 2018, many, many of the trucks listed as “king ranch” will not be king ranches, normally xlt’s and latiates. By showing pricing and a larger image of the trucks listed, I can eliminate many vehicles at first glance. I’m definitely not a fan of the latest update.

Hi BLT41567! Sorry to hear you feel this way. All updates to the Cars.com app are done in-house, so we love hearing feedback from our users on how to improve it! The issue of duplicated MSRP has since been resolved, and you should now be able to see all prices from the search results page. There are currently no plans to return the images to their previous size, but it's definitely something we can consider. As far as the F150's, we are constantly working to improve the data quality and accuracy for the listings diplayed, and hope you'll have a better experience with this in the future. Please let us know if you have any other feedback, and thanks for using Cars.com!

Subtle paid searches

mwfreezeii

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.

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!
