Incredible App!

I love this app and this is where I’ve bought my first car almost 2 years ago now. Everything is perfect except one thing I really want Autotrader to implement, which is when you save a car you can no longer view where the car is located if it is a private seller. You can view where the car located on the main search page if it’s a private seller but as soon as you save the car the option to view the location is no longer available unless if it’s a dealership. You have to either call the private seller if you want to find out where the car is or search the car you saved in the main search area and find out from there to see the location. I think this would help a lot of people and it’s a little bit irritating for myself as I have a lot of cars saved and I don’t always know where they are. Other than that the application is amazing.

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.

Previously good app ruined in some ways

Used to be a pretty good app. Still is the best app in terms of having lots of cars for sale, but has been made noticeably worse in terms of user experience.
The ratio of promoted items to the ones you actually searched for is awful. Half the items in a list are marked “Ad” or “You might also like” etc. But it’s already supposed to be an advertising service!! You can sort by, say, Price, only to find that half the items in the list are not ordered by price, presumably because the sellers have paid extra to have their car promoted. It ruins the experience of looking down a list of cars, you feel like you are always losing your place. This is made worse by the fact that each list item is displayed as giant on the screen. Modern phone screens are large; it should be possible to have an option to display like 10 items in the list at once, instead of only about 1.5. The user experience is just not great here frankly. In addition, the option to search for cars within a given area seems to be a simple radius from postcode search. But people are not travelling as the crow flies! An option for driving time distance would be useful, as would a custom area search.
