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, mechanics know taking advantage of people is easy, given their lack of knowledge about car maintenance needs.
Two engineers based out of Atlanta, GA were tired of seeing their friends and family get taken advantage of at auto shops, so they decided to do something about it. They created this new affordable device that plugs into your car’s OBD (on-board diagnostics) port – the very same port that mechanics use to figure out what’s wrong with your car.
EVERY car built in 1996 or later is required to have this port.
This new device will instantly diagnose your car’s problems for you and translate them into simple, easy-to-understand terms – and much more! Meaning, the next time a mechanic is trying to pull one over on you, you can call them on it!
BEST PART: If and when that ‘Check Engine Light’ comes on, FIXD tells you exactly what’s causing it in a way anyone can understand! No more looking up codes or taking it to the dreaded auto shop only to be given a list of unnecessary repairs – never again!
You can also turn off the check engine light right from the FIXD app if the problem is not serious or if you want to see if it will reoccur. How cool is that?!
It's easy. You can buy the tool directly from the website.
