I recommend this app a lot.

It's a great app to use when you're looking for a car and you don't want to spend too much money it's got so many cars it's got every car you could think of. I think a good update could be is say where the cars are (very car on the app that is selling) because there are cars that don't say where the car is. But apart from that, if you don't want a car there are motorbikes, vans, people carry, lorries, cars, motorhomes, trucks, trailers, caravans, machines and tractors and I think you should add a place where you can see all the car you've looked. And also I think you should add a comment place so I can comment to the seller so it's easier to buy the car (if I want it). Also, I think there should be for every car how much it costs for tax, as there are cars that don't say.

One sided app and company !

I must say that in this day and age, where people like to socialise and share opinions this app and company is the exact opposite of that definition. Is it made for the seller or the buyer? My opinion is that the company’s policy is leaning almost 100% towards the sellers and by this I am referring to some of the buyers key freedoms being slashed out. For example why can the buyer seen when a car was put up for sale?( ordered by date posted) Or why can we leave comments on cars? Instead of travelling 100 miles to see a car and be disappointed, I would rather read comments from people who already seen the car.( this makes buying a second hand car a long process ). For example, I am looking at this time to buy my next car and 2 days ago I just traveled 150 miles to visit 3 cars in 5 hours. Thats allot of resources to invest in just 3 cars. All in all, what I am saying is that autotrader is no being customer orientated. Yeah, sellers pay the fee, but customers buy the cars. And apparently, they do not know that. And out of my experience from 2 days ago, I have to put my car search on hold for another 2 weeks, which in the end means, no sale of any of your advertised car, a.k.a. No money going around. Give these lines a thought Autotrader. A good, deep one. Or not, and then cry of revenue loss when another similar app comes around.

Great App but missing a few tools.

This app needs to include some kind of commenting system on cars, so that it can save other people time. Instead of travelling miles to look at a car how much easier would it be to read comments about it, from someone who had viewed it in person already? And not even that, what if you wanted to quickly ask a question about the vehicle before going down to look at it. You could just comment with your question and have the seller respond, much easier than going out your way to find the sellers contact info. I also think the saved search notifications need to be improved. Instead of just telling me there are new cars, I’d like the app to actually tell me the make/model of cars that have new listings. This would be extremely helpful since I have notifications for multiple makes of cars turned on. Besides these issues the app is a great way to find a new car.
