Why is Searching CarGurus so difficult?


Asked by Steve Apr 01, 2020 at 01:59 PM

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

It seems impossible to limit search results from showing cars hundreds of
miles away and in other states, even when I limit my search to 100 miles or
less from home in middle of my state.  (ND).  Why is this and how do I resolve
this?  I do not care about models for sale in states across the country when I
am searching just 100 miles from my home!

Usually this happens when the specific vehicle you're looking for isn't available in the mileage radius you select. Then the site automatically expands the search area. That's happened to me too! Hope that helps! Jim
