God afternoon all, we have 90 cars advertised with Autotrader, our increase is going to be £2.77 per car per week, we currently pay £8.14 per car per week. Autotrader say it’s all about transparency, so would any of you mind sharing what you pay and for how many sars please. I have recently done post code analysis using data from our DOC (spread sheet), motors, car gurus and Autotrader. I’ve also cross matched all call and email enquiries from motors and Autotrader, the results speak for themselves. I am not an Autotrader fan, never have been, I, along with a friend started the MTAU back in 2012., wrote many articles on cost v’s value, if it was just my decision our company would not advertise on autotreder, but it’s not just up to me, I do run one site and have just given 30 days notice to terminate the contract for that one specifically. Any way I’d be interested to see what people pay, I’m sure it will vary, there are alternatives, one thing I will say is Autotrader we’re by far the most expensive in both cost per lead and cost per sale. Thinking of restarting the MTAU again to try and get a more cost effective solution for advertising stock. Best to all. Graham.

You missed 2 stars from the second set of stars for the ‘comma’ & the letter ‘S’. You should be ashamed of yourself :lol:

Hiya Graham, 

That's a lengthy way to say you don't like Auto Trader ! Would be interesting to see how one site compares to the other if you have left AT and the other hasn't.

I'm not sure why you knowing what other people pay is relevant though ? so i wouldn't hold you breath on that front.
I guess you friend is "Avon  Valley" who wrote a very similar reply on the other AT related thread about the "motor trade advertising union" ? personally i haven't heard if it before but the IMDA are having a crack at it so maybe speak to them? though what i would suggest is having a different startegy than complain about the cost of AT all the time :rolleyes:  

**Edited to correct name**

I'm fed up with the constant slagging off and moaning about AT. Yes, they are the greedy but sometimes you just have to get in bed with the devil......

No need to be so rude, I guess some didn’t understand the content. I’m not certain if advanced member is correct for some. Oops I’m sorry I used more the three words... pictures will be best I think.

I get your frustrations with the replies but your reply isn't going to help - not exactly "How to win friends and influence people"!

Anyway, I guess alot of the responses are because there's a very similar discussion going on in another thread right now.

As for my take, we don't use AT, so I'm not much help as we pay £0. We're eBay, Gumtree, Facebook, Cargurus and this great big lump of land called a forecourt.

I know it’s embarrassing. I’ve been warned for inappropriate language so I’ve had to reduce my usually eloquent standards to the level of text messaging.
