Shopping around for a used car can be a huge pain, and sometimes it’s nice to have a mobile app on hand in case you’re out and about looking for a good deal. Auto Trader is one of the UK’s most popular services to find used vehicles. It’s also pretty popular in the US, but the UK Android app updated today with some pretty cool new features.
One of the big new features is the addition of a vehicle history check, which lets you find out past details about a vehicle if they’re available, like color changes, whether or not it’s been stolen, license plate changes, and more. Auto Trader warns us that “1 in 3 vehicles has a hidden past”, so this new feature lets you pick out a new ride with greater confidence.
Other features include saving vehicles and searches across multiple devices, local dealership search, motorcycle search, saving potential vehicle candidates to your “garage,” and reviews from owners and experts alike. These features make the process of finding and purchasing a new vehicle a lot less stressful for everyone.
Plus, having a mobile app that can do all this is great for when you’re out looking for a new ride. It’s a lot more convenient to have your phone with you to just look up vehicles for sale in your area. Once you find something you like, you can go straight there without having to go home first to use your computer to look up potential cars to buy.
