Could be better
Yes, it does help keep it track of our five vehicles. But entries take forever to register with Carfax and warnings about entered service continue showing. Constant reminders to visit App Store to 'upgrade' this app are frustrating - no upgrades show as available. Easy to use, helpful, but the frustration isn't worth the effort, as today's oil change entries won't clear the warnings for a week or more, and checking to see if they've cleared only produces popups warning me to visit the App Store to upgrade my app for better service. Might visit to see what else is available!

Thank you for reaching out. It appears that you're using version 2.36 which was released in November 2017. In that time we've made a number of significant upgrades to the app which may be the reason why you're experiencing issues.
On your device if you visit App Store > Updates and then search for myCARFAX we would strongly suggest you update to version 2.44. If you continue to experience these issues after updating, please reach out to: https://support.carfax.com/c_contactus
My well maintenance badge
I had my oil and filter changed and the shop I used was in and out oil change on Broadway in Garland and Carfax is not recognizing this and they are threatening to take my well maintained badge away if I don’t get my oil and filter changed. I am not going to do it twice
Also if you do it yourself it does not get counted because Carfax works with companies that are Carfax registered and if you use a shop or your neighbor next-door like me, who is a master mechanic does my work, I have the receipts and I still am being threatened to lose my badge because I did not go to a shop. I am a senior citizen on low income and there is a lot of work I can do myself. But Carfax will not recognize it even though I have receipts. So they can take their app and they can keep it because I am not gonna feel the pockets of some greedy dealer or whatever when I can do The work myself
I am removing this application because they force you to go to shops that they approve of otherwise your work on your car does not count. This is a rip off and I would not ever use car fax. I am removing it. I take very good care of my car but because I use my own skills and the skills of very good mechanics that are not on their so-called list, they are taking my badge away because according to them I am not cooperating. Don’t use this application because they will threaten you with badge removal if you don’t take your car all the time to their shops

Thank you for reaching out. Can you please send a message here and reference this review: https://support.carfax.com/contact-us/general/ so that we can investigate this more? There are a number of reasons why the badge may be in jeopardy and our customer support team will be better equipped to get to the bottom of this.
A waste of time and loss of records.
I installed this app a long time ago to keep all of my cars maintenance records in one place and clean up some paper clutter. It worked good for a long time until last week when I tried to open the app and could not log into to my account. I received a message saying that Carfax had detected commercial activity on my account and blocked me from accessing my account. I know for sure that my account was not used commercially as it’s only signed in on my phone and no where else. I emailed customer support and received a reply telling me that the mycarfax app is not for commercial use and that I would need to purchase a commercial account. My work is in aviation and we don’t use/need carfax for anything with airplanes so there’s no reason to tell me that nonsense. So I kept very detailed logs of our 4 cars and now ALL of that information is gone unless I pay $$$. I learned long ago that nothing is for free and have learned that’s true with Carfax! Do yourself a favor and keep your maintenance records listed somewhere else. I’m out 3 years of maintenance history now, all thanks to Carfax.
Get all of your passes, tickets, cards, and more in one place.
