Good support even for the free version, upgraded to pro for the additional features at a very reasonable price

The documentation is pretty spot on if you need it. Anything you can't find is quickly answered by the developer

Good documentation, which used to be backed up by Kathy who no longer seems to be available.

Functionality
Provides the options to add vehicles with photo's. Custom fields can be added and displayed.

Ease of use
Simple to use. Customisation though is proving difficult due to lack of documentation.
52
Support
Support was good pre-sale, now 3 days later I am still waiting for a reply. 5 days if you include weekend. A bit disappointed.
49
Documentation
Documentation is very sparse. This would not be a problem if the response time was better. 5 days including a weekend is not good.

Value for money
Very reasonably priced in my opinion.
I used this to: Local Car Dealer Site

Pro Active Support


Posted on 06 March 2013
I have noticed quite a few reviews here that are very negative and have to say my experience is totally the opposite.



I installed the free version and then required an extension which was $9 or £6 approx. I encountered one or two issues and then emailed support. They responded promptly and resolved the issues as well.



I have used another product in the past and the support for that was equally as good.

VM On its way out?


Posted on 04 November 2009
I have used VM on and off now for some time with various sites and have to say overall for me anyway that it installs and runs without to many major problems. Reading the help doc explains pretty much everything and for msot people getting your store online should be a good experience. As pointed out postage seems to be a bit of a nightmare to sort.



But the biggest problem to me now seems to be that questions are not being answered on the forums by the developers. I realise it is open source and people dedicate time to it but it did seem to have so much promise. Not getting answers gives the impression at least that the project is not very active!



For me duplication of images is a major issue especially when you are talking 900 images. An ongoing issue that still is not resolved and one which could have a major impact on someones hosting account.



Customisation of certain areas is not always to straight forward either.



The product overall does the job but I do not feel I can't give to higher mark based on the points raised above.

Simple to Install


Posted on 01 July 2009
I have used this plug-in on one or two sites which were mainly Joomla 1.0. without any problems. I have now tried it and cannot get it to work in 1.5.11. I have checked the forums and the question has been raised but no answer is forthcoming.



Based on past experience a good product which is simple to use, hopefully the apparent issue in 1.5.11 etc can be addressed/answered fully on the forum.
