AutoGlance – Find a Used Car

Looking for a used car to replace the vehicle you’ve been driving for the past decade? When and your local newspaper listings aren’t enough, look to AutoGlance for a solution. The automobile aggregation engine sifts through the listings on multiple used car websites so you don’t have to.

AutoGlance isn’t a tool for people who can’t decide which car is right for them. It’s better suited for people who’ve already decided on a make and model, and now need some help finding a car that meets those specifications in their price range. Enter the type of car you’re looking for on the AutoGlance homepage, along with your zip code and the distance you’re willing to travel when making a used car purchase. On the next page you’ll see all the available vehicles that fit your description. Narrow down the choices even further by selecting the transmission, exterior color, and search distance. AutoGlance displays the results on a useful graph that ranks vehicles based on mileage and price. Hover over the graph icons to see actual photos of the cars you’re looking at, and click on the vehicles that look like what you want. AutoGlance takes you to the original listing, where you can view more about the vehicle and contact the seller directly.

AutoGlance prevents you from having to look through vehicles that are deemed a “worse deal” than similar listings by hiding those listings and displaying them only when you specifically ask that they be shown. This is yet another feature that saves people time – and hopefully some money – when searching for used cars online.

Practical Uses:

  • Find your dream car online
  • Locate a 2002 Honda Civic in your local area
  • Make sure you’re getting a good deal before making a used car purchase
  • Compare vehicles with the same mileage as the one you’re thinking of getting

Insider Tips:

  • AutoGlance aggregates listings from AutoTrader,, Vehix, and Web2Carz
  • Users can limit their listings by selecting the transmission type or exterior color
  • AutoGlance hides listings that it considers a bad deal
  • Graphical icons represent the most important features from each vehicle listing

What we liked:

  • AutoGlance helps people save time by bringing multiple listing sites together
  • Vehicle listings are ranked on a graph based on the mileage and age
  • People can see images of the vehicles they’re looking at by hovering over the icons
  • Visual graphs make it easier for people to make smart car-buying decisions

What we didn’t like:

  • AutoGlance doesn’t automatically show photos of each vehicle, which means users have to hover over individual icons to see the associated images
