Have you ever worried about car maintenance and repairs? As women, we often are in the mercy of car repair shops. When something goes wrong with our vehicle we have to take their advice and recommendations, and pay the price they say.
The CarMD offers peace of mind in an easy to use device. It fits nicely in your purse or right in the glove compartment. CarMD allows anyone to quickly check our cars health. After connecting the device to your vehicle, you can uncover hidden problems your car may have with its color-coded vehicle health monitor LED’s. After connecting the device to your car, you can then connect CarMD to your computer and get detailed reports with likely fixes and estimated repair costs.
There are many reasons why it is important to check your vehicles health. A few of those reasons are:
- The no. 1 reason for “check engine” related repairs in 2010 was an O2 sensor failure (9.34%). It costs less than $200 to fix an oxygen sensor and can lead to a 40% reduction in gas mileage if ignored.
- You will not pass a state emissions test if you have a “check engine” light on.
- 10% of all vehicles on the road in the U.S. right now have a “check engine” light on; half (50%) of those drivers have ignored the light for three months or more.
- 50% of used car buyers are women, yet 78% find car buying their least satisfying retail experience because they aren’t armed with the information needed to make this important buying decision.
