Auto Trader just seems to be a middleman for scammers and timewasters. In two weeks all I've had are scammers via email (a dozen of them) all wanting me to refund their shipping, one person who called to arrange to see the car and never showed up (complete timewaster) and one person who turned up and offered a ridiculously low amount of money (£600 below asking price when it was only on for just under £1.5k). I checked carefully and did my research before putting the car up for sale and believe it to be priced correctly. At the very least Auto Trader needs to do something about the scammers it seems to encourage. Very expensive at £40 and totally not worth it. Very disappointed.
