After nearly 5 months of work, we’re finally ready to launch AutoGlance. It’s been a long road and we’re excited to show the world what we think is the easiest and most enjoyable way to find your new car. Why? Here are three reasons:
1. AutoGlance aggregates listings from a number of places (like AutoTrader and Cars.com) so that you don’t waste your time performing the same search over and over on different sites.
2. AutoGlance has a unique interface that’s unlike any other car search site. We graphically display things like the car’s color, mileage, and price so that you don’t have to read through a block of text (who likes reading?).
3. AutoGlance uses ‘collapses’ to hide dozens of cars if they are determined to be worse deals than a similar listing. It sounds like something obvious, but it’s an important feature that’s missing from all other car search sites. We can easily save you from looking through 50+ cars that you most likely have no intention of buying.
We’re really happy with AutoGlance in its current state, but we’ve still got a long way to go. We consider AutoGlance to be what’s referred to as a ‘minimum viable product’ (MVP) in the startup world. In other words, we feel that we’ve got the features that you couldn’t live without (ie filtering by automatic or manual transmission), but we’re still working on the more complex things (ie the ability to only show cars that have a sunroof). Feel free to contact us with any features or ideas you many have for improving AutoGlance, we will certainly take them into consideration!
