Horrible beyond belief! Too arrogant of team to work with! They behave like they know it all even though their price algorithm is very flawed. I do not recommend their platform at all. Do not waste time on CarGurus flawed pricing! Very misleading and inaccurate.

Car Gurus are helping dealers to hide bad reviews, one of the dealers was showing a BMW X1 for sale without saying it needs a motor replacement while he said it on Kijiji and when I texted the dealer he said the car is good without saying anything about motor replacement, and when I wrote my review, car gurus rejected it, imagine they are helping dealers to hide the truth because dealers pay them but poor customers don't. Stay away from this website and shop properly.

    Looking for the newer version of the fiat 124 spider. They rate the price of the cars as good. But the price of all of the used cars are higher than the new cars that are the same model. Doing a deep dive in car gurus they don't recognize this make and model as being produced after 1974. How do you evaluate price on a car you don't know even exists? Just more computer software vaporware. I would never trust any evaluated products based on this.

    I got ZERO hits using CarGurus to sell a car. I had the same listing on Facebook marketplace (for free) and got hits every day. The main reason I signed up for CarGurus was their claim that you could get paid securely through their app/site. Before I took my car off, I tried to do that just to see how it worked and only then did it tell me it wasn't supported because my car was selling for too much. Funny how it didn't mention that when I was paying for the service. Bottom line - this site is a waste of time and money.

    Hatem was very gracious, and delivers on his cars. Small upgraded selection, so he can focus on his customers needs, making sure he's fulfilling what you're looking for. He worked with us, to make sure we had a safe, and great ride. Definitely recommend, and if we ever need another car, we'll be back.

    Tried to sell my car on here and did everything they asked even verified my identity. My car wasn't getting as much attention as I had hoped so I paid the extra $20 to have my listing featured and the next day right in the middle of messaging 3 potential buyers who were very interested they took my listing down. Said I needed to write some letters on a piece of paper, put it on the windshield, open one of the front doors and take a picture so they could verify I wasn't trying to scam some... Like are you freaking kidding me!!! The picture of my ID, vin plate and license plate wasn't enough??? They cater to the dealers. It's almost like they make it hard for you to sell your car so you'll just trade it in.

    The only way to efficiently shop for cars is to use the filters. You put the minimum price as anything above nothing and even still there are thousands of vehicles listed with no price. Don’t list without a price. Even if you select the sort by and sort by most expensive even still all of the vehicles listed without a price are still on the top. Just fucking take the god damn vehicles with no prices off the fucking website. Why would you post a car without a price and no pictures, is there really a car? Why would I shop for something that gives you no information. Don’t post with a price don’t post without pictures. Fuck whoever started doing this shit. Fuck CarGurus I’ll never ever ever use them again they’re are not efficient at all.

    Do not take CarGurus up on their 2 month free trial as you will be charged for 1 month if you cancel at the end of the free trial - I have not sold one car from their free trials and will never deal with them again - waste of time.

    I tried to list my car. I paid the fees needed by them but I did not pay the premium as I did not want to. I got a link. However when I search for my listing as a general person by giving the zipcode and limiting the miles from zip code, I did not see my listing. I looked at least 300+ miles from my place and still did not see my listing. I tried to call the helpdesk and I got a VM saying they are not able to take my call. I left a message and did not hear anything. I think their aim to make sure we go for premium listing. I felt always the dealer's vehicles were given more importance. I dont think I will go with Cargurus again. A big thank you to Cargurus for learning my lesson.

    I kept getting my information forwarded to car dealers when they did not have the car I was interested in. Then I was told just to come down and get another car. Then when I posted my bad review I keep getting a message that said there was something wrong with my review! The site will not accept it when I unsubscribe. Very bad.
