The Cars.com app offers the ability to search cars in stock at local dealers by make and model and then allows users to compare three cars side by side right on the iPhone or Android, to find the best of the best. The app searches new and used cars at dealers.
Users can also use the app to find car reviews from multiple sources. The reviews are stripped of photos, but offer plenty of information about how the car handles, style and comparisons to the competition.
One of the best built-in tools is the car loan calculator. The app offers an easy to use tool to figure the monthly payment based on vehicle price, down payment, tax, interest rate and trade in. This is the best mobile car loan calculator available and helps avoid playing games at a dealership with a 4-square sheet. Users can also work backward with an Affordability calculator to see how much car they can afford at a set monthly payment.
This app also allows you to see trade-in value and private sale value so that you know what to ask for when you sell.
Find Cars.com for the iPhone in the App Store and on Google Play.
