I have used this site for years and have bought and sold many times. A vast range of vehicles are always available and it's great for comparing prices. The only issue they have failed to deal with is scammers. Everytime i advertise i get calls from other agencies trying to flog my car for me - hopefully they'll get this sorted out otherwise they are a valuable resource (read more)

What a rip-of, don't use them unless you want a headache or u're printing money or smth. I bought a car last year and tried to sell it this January through them.

Got a fair amount of calls from genuine buyers as well. Same car, same pics, same advert (at least ebay will let you personalise the ad); never... (read more)

It is actually cheaper to advertise with them if you're a private seller, not exactly reward or thanks for your loyalty over the years eh?! I am a small trader... (read more)

I paid £35 to advertise my car for sale on Autotrader. I advertised at the market price for the car. There were many "sellers" offering for a lot less. I called some of them. They were dealers who did not have that car. I.e. they were fake adverts.
The only responses I received were from multiple PayPay scammers claiming to not live in the uK but wanting to buy the car without inspection.
Finally, I wanted to ask Autotrader for a refund. But it is impossible. Their "Contact Us" section... (read more)

I purchased a car through the autotrader website about 6 months ago and found it to be quite easy. However, when I came to sell the car via autotrader 6 months later I had an absolute nightmare experience!!!

Basically, I advertised the car (Toyota Avensis 2006, 40k miles) with them for 6 weeks (£35 x 2 consecutive ads). I took a lot... (read more)
