About this app

Cheap Cars Finder app is a search platform developed to help low-income people to find affordable used cars for sale (SUVs, pickups, minivans, etc.) in the U.S.

2-MILLION downloads...!

If you’re selling cars at a low price, i.e. under $1000 $2000 or for less than $5000, feel free to post FREE CLASSIFIED ADS for unlimited time. The process is pretty easy on just one page and no previous sign-up is required. The only requisite is one photo of the car and your ad will be automatically approved. Dealerships are welcome.

What you need to know before using the app

Real cheap cars? 1st thing you need to know is that the app doesn’t do miracles. If you’re searching for used cars in "like-new" condition for $5000 or less and 1-3 years old, this isn’t the app to find them.

App's purpose is to help users to find used cars from $500 up to $5000, which is our range for cheap cars but please, keep in mind that some cars at these prices may need some work, have normal wear, or have high mileage, even though, we can assure that, according to their sellers, many of them run well and for some buyers, that’s enough.

Also, although the app encourages sellers to post cars for sale in this price range, it isn't mandatory or forced. Keep also in mind that CHEAP is an ambiguous/subjective word that relies on the budget and overall condition of the car, having the last word, a personal test drive and the inspection, things that the app hasn’t a way to do by itself.

APP requests sellers to post as much as they can detailed information about the overall condition of cars so buyers may have an idea if it is worth the price or not, but again, a personal test drive will have the last word. ** Never pay money for a car you haven’t tested/checked by yourself first **. You can also always contact the seller to request more information which is the correct way to start the negotiation.

Low inventory. App isn’t Silicon Valley-funded and the service is totally FREE, so the budget to market it across the country is limited. Some users complain about the low inventory and we understand and apologize about it, so please, give it some time, we're trying as much as we can to make it known and discoverable. App doesn’t use automatic data feeds provided by street dealerships and their marketing networks which is the way bigger car finder apps work to provide millions of listings. Cheap Cars Finder App relies more on cars posted by their owners, at lower or cheaper prices than dealers may not be able to offer.

Just give it a try, if you find something you like, awesome! but if you don’t, you can try another site/app, that’s how searching online works. Whining, retaliating, or leaving a harmful review, doesn’t help at all.

Outdated ads. A common issue among sellers is they forget to remove their cars once they’re sold given that app allows listing them for unlimited time (some fixer-upper cars need more than the usual time to get sold), so that’s why we do really appreciate you use the [REPORT AD] option in case you find a sold car instead of leaving a negative review. Reporting helps more.

I really liked this app! The people complaining about dealers or it not being "cheap" prices are simply being over dramatic and have no idea the value of a vehicle apparently! Dealers are going to be on any app that sells cars, let's be real! Plus it helps those that are broke and may need financing! Plus Cheap doesn't mean a few hundred dollars for a car, cheap is exactly as the app states, prices between $1,000-$5,000! I found very simple to search and as well as post my car for sale! I really appreciated being able to include so many details about my car too. Many apps limit description space and you end up being msgd asking for small details that could've been included in the description, not with this one! However, I really wish more people either knew about or would actually use this app though! 🤔 I didn't find many new posts or vehicles I was interested in and unfortunately I didn't get 1 msg for the car I was selling 🙁. But that's no fault of the app, Overall great experience and app! 😊

Mrs. Tammy, THANK YOU so much for your review and being objective about it :):) We'd love some users understand the app in the same way you did, especially the part that app doesn't create the content or ads. Given that our market target is kind of narrow, it doesn't work for everyone, but we're doing as much as we can to make it more discoverable.

Terrible experience so far. I understand sometimes a person may forget about a post. But when your phone number is visible on the ad without a paywall and someone sends you a message you should answer. Also there are a bunch of fraudulent posters on this app. They post one price to be pictured along side the thumbnail pic. But then state a different price in the description.

We can't force sellers to reply to inquiries, sorry about it, app doesn't control their will. Did you try to contact them via phone call? That's the fastest and most reliable way to negotiate or find out about a car's availability. It'd be really helpful if you report to us those fraudulent ads or posters you caught, they'll be removed immediately.

Easy app to navigate. Everything loads quickly. Easy to search for exactly what you want. Was looking for a cheap car (any) in my state that costs no more than $2K and it gave me the right option. Save your favorite car and check it later to see if the price decreases.
