You can use quotation marks to search for a phrase:
Excluding Terms (filtering)
honda black -red
This search finds postings that have 'honda' and 'black' but not 'red'.

This search finds postings that have 'honda' or 'toyota' (or both).
You can group terms together in parenthesis when queries are complicated:
red (toyota | honda) -2000 -2001
This finds listings that have 'red' and either 'honda' or 'toyota' (or both) but do not have 2000 or 2001.
- hond* civ* (match "honda civic", "honda civil", etc)
- wood floo* (matches "wood floors," "wood flooring", etc)
- iphone* (matches "iphone," "iphones," "iphone5," etc)
Use 2 or more characters before the * and none following it, e.g. "ip*d" will not work
