Our top rated car diagnostic tool, FIXD, was recently featured on a TV station in Memphis. They do a quick review of FIXD and agree that it is quite a good product. See the video below:
The host enlists the help of a member of the public to try out FIXD on their vehicle. It ends up finding the problem that is causing the check engine light to go on. In the end, they find this product works just as we did in our full review of FIXD.
We've had so many people write in about this new FIXD car health monitor product. It's taken over Facebook and social media in general. We decided to do a big review of it a month ago and the response has been overwhelming. The biggest question we get about FIXD is how to best utilize all of its power to save money on repairs.
Our answer is quite simple - take advantage of maintenance reminders and cost estimates to educate yourself before going into the mechanic shop. This way you are arming yourself with an idea of what to expect. If things seem off you can refer to your app and show the mechanic your basis for your opinion.
If your check engine happens to go off at anytime you'll be prepared. Our family likes to keep a FIXD device in each car just in case something comes up. No need to read any engine codes yourself, it's all translated and reported to the app.
The latest trend in the automotive world is a switch to increasing technology in the form of bluetooth connectivity for everything from music, car functions and engine health. What exactly are some of these diagnostic tools and where are they heading?
As mentioned, our top rated bluetooth car diagnostic tool at the moment is FIXD. We loved how it performed in our full FIXD review. These kind of devices that pair with cellphone apps are becoming so popular and eliminate the need of heavy equipment in our shops.
The best part of these devices is they bring the average car owner a greater knowledge of their car and what to expect. While some mechanics hate that people can lookup engine codes on their own now, the smart mechanic knows that they can expect a more educated and responsible car owner who will probably come in for repairs on time and understand the costs associated with repairs. This means less dissatisfaction and better customer reviews for you.
For the average driver, ultra cool technology is emerging making our cars smarter than ever.
