What is AutoTempest?
AutoTempest is basically a portal into all the biggest, most popular vehicle classifieds sites in America.
So why do need it?
Well, I suppose you don’t. On the other hand, it’ll save you time. My thinking is, why go to autotrader.com, cars.com, automotive.com, etc, and enter the same data over and over, when the Tempest can do it for you? I’m not trying to change the world here, but I figure… if I can save a few thousand people a few minutes each day… that’s pretty cool.
So how do I use it?
It’s pretty straight-forward. Just enter the information on the car you’re looking for, and click “Perform Search”. AutoTempest will automatically search all the biggest sites out there for your car.
The only thing to keep in mind is that not all options are available on all sites. For example, automotive.com does not support the use of keywords in searches. Therefore any keywords entered in will not have an effect on the automotive.com results. I have however made every attempt to keep the results as consistent as possible.
I hope you like it!
