What a good idea

What Car? has launched the UK’s first free car valuation app which will bring What Car?’s 39 years of independent expertise to car buyers and sellers on the move. The app, which has been developed by Grapple Mobile, will be available on iPhone, Android, Nokia and Windows phones.

The app features will include:

n ■Used-car valuation – users can find an accurate valuation by entering the make, model, bodystyle, version, year and mileage of the car they’re looking at. The app breaks down valuations by dealer price, private price, part-exchange, and trade price.

n ■New-car valuation – it’s easy to find an accurate list price for each model, and a What Car? Target Price, which shows an achievable discount on that car.

n ■What Car? independent expert advice – the app contains What Car? expert opinion, star ratings, plus reliability ratings.

n ■Find the nearest dealer – for searched models, based on current location using GPS, or by postcode.

n ■Save cars to My Garage’ in app – enabling quick and easy viewing whenever you are ready/
