AutoTrader.com, by their lack of concern for their customers, aids in scams and frauds

by , May 6, 2008 Rated a Helpful Review
AUTOTRADER.COM DOES NOT CARE ABOUT THEIR CUSTOMERS. BEWARE...AutoTrader.com has knowledge of SCAMS and Fraudulent ads but does not warn the consumers. My son was taken for $3,000.00 and for the majority of the negotiations prior to sending the money, ...

Autotrader does not offer much for individual sellers (except high prices for listing!)

by , Dec 10, 2007 Rated a Very Helpful Review
Stay away if you are a private seller!! Besides glitchy online problems, Autotrader puts private seller ads behind dealers (which is called premium services). For my car I had to scroll to the 5 page even though it was one of the lowest mileage and ...

The AutoTrader Online Service is a great site to find new and used cars online

by , Feb 18, 2006 Rated a Very Helpful Review
Searching for a new car has evolved a lot from having to search through the want-ads, or by waiting for advertisements to come in the mail. The nickel advertisements are still a nice and quick way to find cars on sale out there, but the internet has ...

No customer service, dishonest cheats

by , May 6, 2003 Rated a Helpful Review
I paid autotrader.com to keep running my ad until the vehicle sold. After about 3 months they dropped the ad and would not reinstate it. Perhaps they would reinstate it if there was customer service beyond the form you fill out and never receive a...

AutoTrader - Or the best place to buy or sell your car!

by , Mar 28, 2003 Rated a Very Helpful Review
When I look for a good auto biased web service, I look for more than just good car deals. If I'm going to return to an auto web service on a regular basis I want car reviews, car specs, miscellaneous info, etc. I have been using AutoTrader.com for about ...

Using Autotrader.com to sell your car is a poor option,  unless you are selling a unique auto,  i.e., antique or customized specialty car where national exposure would be helpful. If you are selling a competitively priced 10 year old van

One of the scammiest of web sites out there. Useless to sell a great car, as no one pays any attention, has hardly much visits, and if you do not time yourself just right (mark it down on your calendar or something), you will lose the right for a refund.
