Vinny - Discover Wholesale Price by Scanning Used Car
By Big Data Labs
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Vinny is a FREE app that reveals the wholesale price for a used car to help car buyers and sellers negotiate a smarter deal.
Vinny's Price is calculated from national car auction data and gives you the most accurate and independent view on used car prices anywhere.
• An up-to-date wholesale price as determined by recent auction transactions
• Adjust miles and condition to accurately reflect the car scanned
• Detailed vehicle specifications
• Compare retail listing prices from major sites
• 3rd party “Book Values” to use as comparison
• Vehicle history reports at a cost significantly lower than the popular services
• All scans are “parked” in your Garage for later viewing
• Access your mobile Garage on the web by linking Vinny with your myvinny.com account
• Take photos and share details with friends/family across email, SMS, Twitter and Facebook
Vinny is fast, convenient and provides all the data necessary to turn an uninformed buyer or seller into the best informed consumer in a flash.
Never buy or sell a used car without Vinny. Period.
What's New in Version 3.0
It’s probably easier to say what ISN’T new in this version: nothing.
We have updated every single aspect of the app, front to back and top to bottom. The app has been completely redesigned and is much more image rich and icon-based while the scanner is even more accurate and much faster than before. We even added an OCR option, so no need to find the barcode, just hold it over the VIN plate or sticker and Vinny will find the 17 character string and process it!
The biggest change is the Vinny indicator, which instantly tells you whether you are getting a good deal or not. This works both for buying a used car or trading in your car; just set the asking price or trade in price and Vinny will do the rest!
We have also started to integrate with dealerships around the country and also insurance companies. While this is still growing and may not be available in your area, it’s a huge focus in the coming months.
Please let us know any feedback and please take the time to rate us on iTunes.
(Edit july 2016)Love it!... No longer working
(Edit July 12th 2016)tried again, by deleting and re-downloading app. Doesn't crash anymore, but online garage isn't linked to account and it no longer accepts the vin numbers I previously had. Says it's inaccurate??!!
I guess I'll try again in a few days/weeks.
(Edit July 2016) app crashes when opened.
(First revision comments below)
Just saw it on an article. Immediately went and downloaded it. Checked it out on my buddy's new car he just bought and my 9.5 year old car. Works great! Easy to type in or scan. Quick download of price and data. Great feature that let's you adjust price based upon condition of car and odometer. Didnt try the vehicle history, and since I had no history, it could not give me expected insurance rates. The only slight beef i have with this is a few helpful data in the spec tab is missing. Doesn't tell me expected city/highway Mpg, doesn't tell me expected tire spec or avg maintenance cost. Those things really comes in handy when it comes to understanding the total ownership costs. But overall, still a great and wonderful tool!!!! I've already recommended it to a dozen of my friends and friends who have kids who are just reaching the driving age.
LOVE IT. Saved me $2,500.
I love, love, love this app. I used it to get the Vinny price on a used Ford Focus and I was able to tell instantly that I was being overcharged. It gave me the confidence to negotiate more aggressively. The car dealer was totally unwilling to budge on price initially, but she came down $2,500 when I showed her the app and the other cars nearby that were more in my price range. scanner worked awesome on 9/10 cars. There was one scan that didn't work, but I typed in the vin number and that fixed it. Highly recommend it!
This app has revolutionized my car buying experience. I used to feel overmatched when buying cars but not anymore. The Vinny app was so easy to use. I just scanned the VIN and presto, the salesperson was shocked with all of the information at my fingertips. It truly levels the playing field.
I ended up getting a huge discount off the dealer price and couldn't be happier. Thank you Vinny!!!
