Gumtree the new Trading post – now listing more cars online than any other

something to get the big end of town worried

Some of the biggest car websites in the country will be scratching their heads at the moment as Gumtree brags about their dominance in the used car listing market – more than and which are renowned as places to find a car online.


The Automotive category on Gumtree is growing – with more than180,000 total live car listings across Australia (Gumtree data 7/7/16), everything from bush-bashers to Lamborghinis.

Gumtree say they are serving 7.1 million unique browsers each month (Nielsen May 2016 figures), a staggering number by any measure – and it’s probably why the car section is growing.


Most of us can’t afford a luxury BMW or even a brand new VW from the dealer, so going second hand is a great way to get value if you know what you’re looking for.
