About this app

Shopping for a used car, new car, truck or SUV? Need to sell or trade-in your car, or buy-out your lease? Buying cars at a good price in a crazy market is hard! Let CoPilot help.

CoPilot takes the stress out of shopping for new or used cars: no tricks or bait-and-switch, just honest advice and expert insights so you can buy with confidence. Unlike most car apps, we’re independent and always 100% free. Compare CoPilot to leading car search websites like Cars.com, CARFAX, CarMax, Carvana, KBB (Kelly Blue Book), Edmunds, CarGurus, TrueCar, or Autotrader. CoPilot provides curated results to save you time and money. No endless scrolling. You might call us car shopping / car buying gurus; we only show you cars in stock nearby that match your needs, and tell you which is the best buy.

We compare new and pre-owned cars for sale at every US dealer 24/7 to find hidden gems (premium feature-loaded cars you won’t find anywhere else) at great prices. Like Kayak, but for cars. Using data that dealers would like to keep secret, we calculate the true car value, and help you buy your perfect ride.

Just answer a few questions and let CoPilot do the work. We show you the SUV, crossover, wagon, sedan, minivan, convertible, coupe, van or truck to match your preferences (but not caravans, RVs, or bikes). From Audi to Subaru or Toyota; BMW, Chevrolet or Chrysler to Honda to Tesla, our car ratings and dealer reviews tell you what, where, and when to buy, or why you should wait. Dealer-paid apps never do that.

Frustrated by high gas prices, inflation and rising interest rates, flashy websites and pushy dealers? CoPilot's free app delivers unbiased advice, tips and reviews.

HIDDEN PROFIT CALCULATOR

- Let CoPilot arm you with data that dealers know but never share, to sell or trade-in your car for the most money.

A TRUE CAR EXPERT BY YOUR SIDE
- Our car gurus are just a chat away.
- CoPilot won’t share your information. Contact a dealer when YOU decide.
- We're only happy when you go from "Help me find my car" to "I love my car!"

I can see how it could be helpful. Asks lots of questions in the beginning. Keeps asking you repeat questions about overpaying. Likes to recommend. It'll show a cheap splash screen for a search. It'll then ask you what do you want to see. It'll save your search history. Can't save this preference. Seems like pressure. Looks like it gets you results. From opening the app, after setting it up, still takes a good amount of time. Setting up is also a chore. You're creating an account...

App is difficult to use compared to any other car shopping app I've used. It gives lots of great info, but is hindered by needless animations and a fake "copilot" experience. It misses on the simple things like being able to filter on the year of a vehicle and any time you leave the app to look at more info on a dealers website, it goes back to the starting screen of the app when you hit the back button so you have to start over. I had high hopes but was ultimately let down.

Hi, we are always looking to improve the experience for our users, and really appreciate the feedback. We do have a year filter if that helps! It is located on the search tab next to the make and model name. If we can help assist, please send us a note at support@copilotsearch.zendesk.com. Thank you!

Horrible experience. I don't want a stupid chatbot asking me 100 questions when filters are much easier and faster. The chatbot is also very slow, like it's trying to make it seem like a person is typing. Uninstalled when I realized that the app doesn't let you just search for vehicles. It kinda makes it look like you can skip the "guided" level one, but clicking on level 3 (i.e., just let me look) doesn't do anything, so you're forced to use the chatbot.

I am sorry to see this and I understand your frustration. CoPilot is truly a personalized experience that allows us to do all the hard work of finding a car for you. The initial chat is to save you time later, so you can set up your preferences, which CoPilot uses to provide tailored recommendations. Thank you for your feedback!
