Filters missing 2/5
Worked great until this latest update. Now there is no trim option or interior color option. Not very useful! Also when using the website, the interior color filtering did not work at all. I would choose town for an interior color and all of the vehicles had black interiors. The website filtering was working fine up until today.
Annoying full screens ads 1/5
By The Waco Kidd
I used to love this app, now I hate it with a passion, it randomly plays full screen go pro ads that continuously loop
Good website, used to be a good app too 2/5
The past couple versions of this app I cannot save any cars at all, an error message constantly pops up. Now it crashes like crazy not the mention heats my phone up too, literally. Guess there’s some bugs to kill for those with iPhone 7 Plus latest iOS...
Doesn't work well 1/5
Terrible on ipad pro...couldn't use.
Easy to look for a used car 5/5
By Realtor Kim
Easy app with good search filters
What happened? 4/5
Cannot save vehicles. All vehicles previously saved are no longer there either
Update:I’m assuming you all purged all user data which was causing users not to save vehicles. Although the app displays the user is still “signed in”, because they are given the option to “sign out”, a message displaying “new profile needs to be created” should be displayed to user.
App crashes all the time. You can’t even finish a search without having to start all over :(

Love that App!
App Issues 1/5
I’ve had the app for a few years now and while I absolutely love Autotrader this app crashes every single time I use it within five minutes. No issues with my iPhone so I chalk it up to the app.
Too many advertised listings 1/5
So most users might not notice but most of the results are tiered in the search results based not on the sort criteria, but instead based on how much the dealership paid for advertising. So really becomes tedious to try and do a price comparison.
Don’t allow people to list cars without miles... stupid!!! 1/5
Crashes all the time. Don’t allow people to list cars without miles... stupid!!!
Why can’t I save my searches? 2/5
By Phillip brizown
The app works ok, but the most frustrating thing is not being able to save my searches. Very annoying having to manually enter my search parameters each time I look for certain cars I’m trying to keep my eye on. Cars.com does not have this issue. Another problem is the omission of car fax reports, something the app used to have. Not sure where it all went wrong for autotrader, but please, figure it out. It’s been like this for 6+ months.
Ol’ Reliable 5/5

Capt Siv 5/5
By Capt Siv
Best car sales site I have used it for 8 cars and trucks in the past and will recommend it to everyone and anyone how serous about cars of any kind.
Halfway through scrolling it crashes. Wasn’t big deal but getting very annoying.
App won’t work on my IPhone anymore 2/5
By colbey D
I’ve used this app for years and I’ve liked it but I really hate that I can’t select the half ton, 3/4 ton, or 1 Tom when searching for trucks. It’s tedious to have to sort through all the listings trying to find what I want. I’ve recommended they add the search feature but their recommendation was to select specific makes and models. Now that I need to find a newer truck, the app won’t work after its last update. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled it and still no luck.
It pretty okay, you could search up cars and get the best price
I love it!! 5/5
I love it!!
Favorites Not Saved 3/5
App works good but you always get an error when you try to save cars or searches.
This app is constantly shutting down. 1/5
Great search engine, just wish you were able to narrow down certain models, like bmw and Mercedes but other than that this app closes down about every 10-15 minutes for me.
By Gha Jan
It doesn’t remember last entry. Every time you launch it you will have to start right over again.
Also it doesn’t adding all filters until you hit Search and look at results.

Your app is freezing up again take several tries for it finally works.
Private seller phone numbers 5/5
By old truitt
Area codes for private seller cars were the only way to tell what part of the country the cars are in. I am not interested in cars from salted road areas please bring back phone numbers
Vehicle Locations Not Listed 1/5
The search results omit the vehicle locations and/or distance from your location. Pretty big oversight there Autotrader. More like Autofaker!
By Marty Finley
Great site. Makes it easy. Even for an old fart like me.
Should be ZERO stars 1/5
On the app if you have a car for sale it doesn’t show up in the app! You would think that would be a very important feature. You have to search to find it.
Number 2 and this is the biggy, if they email you through the app.you can’t answer them with a return email!!
This is ok for searches only other than that it is worthless!!
This app would be great if it didn’t crash every time your looking for a car. Will crash with in five minutes of being on app. Please fix it’s so aggravating.
One of the best auto search sites 5/5
By Dr. Liz Rothfield
(AT) is a great site to find autos you may be interested in. Large samples.
Been using for years, now can’t log in 1/5
I’m getting errors logging in on both the app and web. Can’t reset password and customer service hasn’t responded. Might be time to switch to CarGurus.
Great app, been using it for years 5/5
I’ve been using the Autotrader app for about 4-5 years now. It’s had its ups and downs, but overall it’s been my go-to car shopping app. Love the saved car and saved search options and enjoy the mix of dealer and private party listings.
With that said, there are a couple of areas where the developers could make some improvements:
1. You can’t modify your saved searches. Once you have saved a search, you can’t change the max price, you can’t later add extra criteria to it and you can’t even rename it. I’ve been waiting for this feature for years and I’m still waiting.
2. You can’t see the location for private party listings. Not sure which update caused this, but for a while now there’s no way of telling what state/town the seller is located. With dealer listings they give you the full address, website and phone number - with the private party sales I have to guess from the landscaping if it’s a quick drive or a long plane ride away from me.
3. Old abandoned listings: I sometimes save a listing and it’s still on the website a year or two later. Is it still for sale? Does anybody check with the seller? Anybody care at AT? Maybe a days listed column would help consumers get an idea of how long it’s been listed and also sellers should be required to update their ads once in a blue moon.
That’s all I’ve got for now...still love the app
Save feature not working 2/5
By The yung legacy
My go to app for car shopping. It won’t let me save anything at all now. Please update with bug fix.
Not the same 2/5
I used to LOVE this app!!! Last few months I haven’t been able to save searches or vehicles I find. Keeps displaying the same “sorry we stalled” error message.. it’s been “stalling” for months! 🙄
Great! But... 4/5
I use this app everyday. Easy enough to navigate and the search parameters are good enough to narrow things down nicely.
My only gripe is that when you go full screen on a photo while using an iPad, sometimes the photo just gets stuck when trying to scroll. Then you have to minimize the photo to get things moving again.
Thank you! 5/5
Found a great deal on a car and bought it the next day!
Does the job but too frustrating 2/5
The app does the job but it can get too frustrating to use it. If you never exit out the app it works great. However, if you are browsing cars and suddenly you have to check something else (call, text, other app) then you try to go back to this app and it resets so you have to start over again this gets so frustrating. Also there is no option to be able “recent viewed car” or “last search” this functions would create shortcuts and would make the app way better. The only option I have now is to save searches or add cars to favorites but I haven’t been able to do that neither cause every time an error would happen and wont let me add a car to favorites. I hope they fix this annoying issues, until then just a 2 start
Search tools 1/5
By MDC Irish
Your search tools are laborious.
Could be better 3/5
Filter and search options could be simpler and easier, more intuitive like other apps. CONSTANTLY CRASHES. Pretty much every time I use the app it crashes.
Lacks Notifications 3/5
All I want is for the service to notify me when a new match exists but more importantly, when a vehicle I have favorited has had a price drop.
It’s ok 3/5
I have only one complaint that doesn’t apply to everyone. But, if you are looking for a truck and you filter for a CREW CAB, be prepared to sort through 10,000 double cabs. Apparently someone doesn’t understand the difference.
App Glitches then Closes 1/5
When using the App it will just close randomly making you restart the app and re-input all your search criteria.
Never Not Crashed 3/5
I like the app. I like the layout, the listings, the features. All that’s great, but I’ve never looked at cars for more than 30min without the app crashing and closing - then I have to reopen and restart my searches. I’m on an iPhone 8, this app just fails to stay open for any length of time. Otherwise I like the app.
Crashes way too much to be a good app. Have to reset my filters every time! So annoying
Autotrader 4 life 5/5
By KW United Group
Been using CarGurus. The only have a fraction of the cars in the market. Loving this app and it’s ability to get down to a more micro search. Was able to find the exact car I was looking for. Love it!
Need an app that works 1/5
By Doctor Goop
Tried to save a search but can’t because someone doesn’t check the code sufficiently.
Filters do not hold 2/5
Not as useful as I hoped. Each time I use it, I change my location from my previous (original) address, it still shows dealers near my old address. When I filter to a particular model I get very few cars. Setting at all options gives many results but for wrong state.
Great for me 4/5
I have used Autotrader for over 10 years. Once I adapt to their updates and layouts I have no problems. Its easy to change filters on the fly without losing your saved settings and the app is responsive. 2019 update: As time goes on I have a harder time knowing if the results really match my filter. I specifically search for cars with a sunroof and get 20 results. Some don’t have a sunroof so that means??? Why filter?
Constantly Crashes 3/5
Really like the app and ease of use for searching functions but very frustrating to use because it constantly crashes in the middle of my search.
Not right 1/5
