Boston, MA (PRWEB) January 4, 2009
iSeeCars.com (http://www.iSeeCars.com) has become a leading Web 2.0 car classifieds search engine in a short period of time. Like Google, iSeeCars.com is simple, easy to use and powerful but focuses on enabling car consumers to search almost 2 million cars for sale classifieds posted on more than 10,000 websites. Our mission is to provide useful and unbiased tools and tips to help car consumers make a more informed decision. Since the beta launch in the first half of the year, iSeeCars.com has grown over 1000% in visitors and received great reviews from users and the media / bloggers.
Many users have written to compliment iSeeCars.com and rave about the ease of use, simplicity and power of the iSeeCars.com search engine. One user called it her "new favorite site for cars" and commented that iSeeCars.com is "simple, clean and focuses on the real point! No garb, no thousands of advertisements, pop-ups, pop-unders or other stupid stuff." She gave it "two thumbs up." Another user voiced that the site is "very simple to navigate and pulls great results! I haven't seen such a great site in a while. I usually just use AutoTrader because it is local to me in the catalog and I can pull custom results but those are limited. Now here, I can find almost anything I want. It's great."
Even automotive dealers think iSeeCars.com is tremendously helpful for consumers. A car dealer in Minnesota wrote in the iSeeCars.com forum that "there are very few of us around who don't want to play games and fight customers to pay more than the market calls for. Your desire to give good information and provide it openly to retail customers is refreshing and gives me hope that your site will be one that puts to shame the AutoTrader's of the world. Your advantage is your sincere desire to help customers understand which cars are potentially the best deals not just the least expensive. Obviously a car with 40k miles is worth a couple thousand less than an identical one with about 20k on it but most retail customers don't know this. By showing the cars in the default "potential deal" order you help them learn this."
iSeeCars.com has also received terrific mentions in the media and from bloggers. About.com (a New York Times owned website network) automotive blogger, Keith Griffin, gave kudos to some of iSeeCars' unique features such as the "moving sale" option which lets consumers search for used cars for sale by owners who are moving out of town or country. "The idea is an owner is desparate to sell the car at a lower price because time is of the essence."
Readwriteweb (a much read blog covering Web 2.0 technology) encouraged users to "test drive this auto search engine." KillerStartups.com called iSeeCars.com a killer [startup] because "iSeeCars makes everything a lot easier when searching for a car. It covers all the major classifieds and auto sites and has helpful articles and price comparison...It's got quite an easy interface...[and]...makes searching for cars a lot easier than sifting through hundreds of classifieds and websites."
Since iSeeCars.com's beta launch, the talented team at iSeeCars.com has made many improvements to the website to make it even easier and more convenient based on the feedback from our community. Some of the improvements and new features include:
- Users can now easily find fuel-efficient cars (defined as cars with greater than 30 miles per gallon) for sale by simply selecting the "fuel efficient" option when searching.
- Car buyers are provided an expanded set of used car buying tips and articles including advice and helpful information about the car buying process from automotive experts.
- iSeeCars.com incorporated a forum which is already fostering a community helping each other about the used car purchase process
- Users are now able to search for a particular car across all locations or nationwide. This is especially useful if users are trying to locate a hard to find vehicle and are willing to travel beyond their local geography (interestingly enough, about 50% of car buyers on eBay purchase a car outside of their state of residence).
- There are now more filters by which users can narrow down their car search results. Car buyers can search for used cars with warranty, cars for sale by owner, moving sale, and cars that were garaged. There will be more filters we will implement to help users more easily and quickly find their car of choice.
There are a number of other changes and new features that will be implemented to further help car buyers and consumers. iSeeCars.com continually strives to make the best website for impartial tools, analysis and information for used car buyers. Check out iSeeCars.com at http://www.iSeeCars.com.
iSeeCars.com, a privately held boston-based company, is the most comprehensive car buyer-focused search engine for cars for sale classifieds. Developed by an experienced team of PhDs, software engineers, and former entrepreneurs, hailing from top universities throughout the world including Harvard, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Peking University, and Princeton, iSeeCars.com pioneered a one-of-a-kind, revolutionary approach that gives consumers a powerful way to search for cars for sale across the Web and to discover and find the right car at the right price more easily, quickly and smartly. With just one click, users of iSeeCars.com are able to see used cars for sale from many thousands of car classifieds websites, newspaper sites, and auction sites like eBay along with many local dealership sites. Not only does iSeeCars.com provide a simple one-click search, it also gives consumers relevant, insightful analysis, tools, and information to more easily and quickly discover a potential car deal through its innovative, proprietary classifieds analysis and ranking technology. For example, car buyers can easily search for "moving sale" cars in which owners need to sell their car because they're moving out of town or country; the idea is that the car buyer may be able to get a good price or deal on the car because the seller is in a situation where they must sell the car within a short time-frame.
