The app is very useful while on the go however there are a few things missing... 1. Unable sort my saved vehicles by distance or age while using the app. 2. Unable to filter based on the number of previous owners. This is a problem on all platforms. 3. Have to keep clicking on More Options every time I do a new search. Why not just have every option available on the search screen. 4. It would be good if I could omit cars from searches because I've already viewed them and am not interested.

All in all great but very annoyingly does not show the location when you are looking at the page if the actual car. This is particularly frustrating if you have email notifications search, click the link which opens the app, then to find out where it is you then have to rerun the search, sort by most recent just to find out where it is.

Does what it should. 👌 Edited: no it doesn't. They're getting paid so much to push ads on search results that you might as well not even put search filters on. Just a constant stream of cars which are outside budget and distance filters. No ability to filter by ulez compliance like the website either. I want to give this a higher score but I just can't based on the fundamental issues above.
