Performing a Search

    Step 1: Select your vehicle search criteria.
    Step 2: Click Search.

Search Results Explained

  • PowerSearch lists the total number of vehicles available that match your search criteria, followed by a breakdown of the number of matching vehicles per inventory. As you scroll down the page you'll find the links to the inventory on the left, broken out by inventory source: In-lane, OVE.com, Simulcast, or Simulcast Everywhere.
  • You can alter/change the criteria from the results page—no need to go back to the main search page.
  • If PowerSearch did not return the results you expected, please make sure your criteria were correct.

Saving a PowerSearch

  • After you have performed a search, you may want to save your search parameters so you can easily run it again at a later date. This is especially useful if you perform the search often or are looking for a very specific vehicle.
  • To save a search, click Save Search at the top left of the page, underneath Current Search. A Save This Search popup box will appear. Name your search, then choose your notifications option: none, email (you will need to provide an email address), or SMS/text message (you will need to provide your number and choose a carrier). Choose how often you want to be notified and for how long. Click Save.
  • You can access your searches from the My Saved Searches on each search result or Workbook page, or from the global navigation under Buy.
