Vehicle Data for car dealers

Easily populate the vehicle details and specs by simply choosing the vehicle year, make and model.
No more manually typing all of your vehicle data. Car dealers love this!

You simply need to choose the year, the make and the model of the vehicle and then click the ‘Populate the Fields’ button to auto populate each field.

The car data is pulled from CarQuery and the CarQuery database contains over 68,000 vehicles from over 150 manufacturers going all the way back to 1941 until today.

Advanced Search

The search box is extremely smart and can be customized to suit your needs.

There are tons of options and you can choose which fields you want to add to the search box.

There is also a radius search that allows users to narrow the search results to their region. This uses a combination of Google Maps Geocoding and radius searching to deliver the relevant results.

Google Maps

Google Maps is integrated into each listing. When adding a listing, you simply need to start typing the address and Google will help you find the exact address and location. You can even move the map marker and place wherever you like.

On the listing page, it will not pinpoint an exact address, it will instead show a circle of the area. Which avoids giving away any personal addresses.

Shortcodes

[auto_listings_listing]

The shortcodes can be easily customized, with each shortcode having many options.

Template System

A robust, flexible framework & template system gives you full control over every aspect of your automotive website, so you can customize it to fit your needs.

The template system used is very similar to the WooCommerce template system, so if you have used that before, this will be a breeze.

Reviews

At this time still need some work

Has the potentional to be great!
Missing a next button and years make model not properly configurated as yet
Makes not alphabetic and not connected in frontend search. Same goes for year build.

On the backend quite pleasent to use!

This is a fake description for plugin

the author says:The car data is pulled from CarQuery and the CarQuery database contains over 68,000 vehicles from over 150 manufacturers going all the way back to 1941 until today.
and in the image saying API connection, there is nothing of that, every thing has to be done manually, such a wast of time!!!

Great for developers

I can see myself using this plugin a lot.
I create many automotive websites each year and after initial testing and talks with the developer (I wasn’t 100% sure on how their template system worked), I think this will be my new go-to automotive solution.
Previous to this I used various different car themes but they all came with their own pitfalls. This plugin can work with any theme which will be a huge bonus for me and a huge timesaver.
So far, I am loving it!
