    • Transmission (Multiple Selections)
    • *Number of Seats (Multiple Selections)
    • *Engine Size (Sliding Scale, choose min and max)
    • Fuel Type (Multiple Selections)
    • *CO2 Emissions (Sliding Scale, choose min and max)

    The one thing still missing is Boot Size (in Litres), I'd like to see that option or if not available, at least in the car details.

    I also don't like how the results are shown, it certainly doesn't make it any easier to compare when the cars aren't displayed in a list format.
    You should have the choice of how the results are displayed.

    I also note, it's going to make it really difficult to keep my tracker up to date.

    That was an absolute Chore. I do Not like this new search system one little bit. Good job I know ehat cars I am interested in for when I am due for a replacement.

    It looks as if they've tried to simplify the system, such as the "easy speak" / "simple speak" versions of documents that have been published for people with learning difficulties.

    Tried and failed, Design wise its a good system, but some option to have a list view would have came in handy. Also they've removed the sort by power option

    The trouble is, that without list view it really will be a chore to update.

    I'll have a go tomorrow.

    Yeah, i did start a price tracker database in access, but it became to time consuming..[even just checking the cars i was personally interested in rather than all of them]

    Going to be starting a new little project soon often feel theres not enough hours inthe day

    Ditto in Access, At one point quite a few years ago you could just copy and paste 100's of cars straight from the website. Now you're restricted to 9 cars at a time.

    Yeah, similar with the PDF export - That has been removed.

    I'm quite surprised people don't complain about the pictures.. Showing a top of the range trim vehicle, when the one you can get is nothing like it...

    I've made a complaint through 'let us know what you think' and even that was more complicated than it should be.

    I mentioned we should have an option to choose 'list' or 'gallery' view, and that the mpg slider moves in 10mpg increments which is far too large.
