AOL Autos Launches Used-Car Site

April 08, 2008

Dulles, Va. AOL Autos ( has announced the launch of a new, open marketplace for used cars. The site is designed to provide car buyers with access to more than 2.5 million vehicles for sale in the U.S. and a new set of search and filter tools to more easily find a car that fits their needs.

The AOL Autos used-car marketplace features a new intuitive search function that enables users to search for used, certified pre-owned, and private-seller listed cars using natural language queries (e.g., “black Honda Civic”). Users can filter results based on make, model, price, body style and more, resulting in more relevant listings.

In the coming months, additional enhancements to the site will include Spanish language listings, video listings and more posting services for sellers.

“For the first time, consumers will have completely unrestricted access to the biggest U.S. inventory of used cars on the Web, coupled with user-friendly search tools, enabling buyers to find the exact car they’re looking for,” said Rudi Thun, general manager of AOL Autos. “The development of an open marketplace signifies our commitment to creating an environment in which everyone can participate, resulting in a better experience for both buyers and sellers.”
