Have you ever gone to an auto repair shop for an oil change, only to have the mechanic say you need a new transmission? Or has the mysterious “check engine” light come on, and next thing you know the mechanic has a list of expensive engine parts that need replacing? Unfortunately, many mechanics know taking advantage of people is easy given their lack of knowledge about car maintenance needs.
But there’s a new device you simply plug into your car that tells you exactly what’s wrong with it. If you own a car built after 1996 then you can use this brilliant new device called FIXD to instantly diagnose any car problems. This means the next time your “Check Engine Light” happens to come on, you’ll know exactly what the issue is and the mechanics won’t be able to lie to you!
All you have to do is plug FIXD into your onboard diagnostics port (which is usually located under the dash below the steering wheel) and then download the free FIXD app on your smartphone (Apple or Android). The app will let you know if there are any specific issues with your car in plain and easy to understand language. Not only that, but it will also provide you with an estimate of the cost to fix any issues and will let you know what the consequences are if you continue to drive with the problem. You also have the ability to reset your check engine light in the app with the click of a button.
