Best automotive service records app ever!
I discovered this app after I bought a newer Ford Expedition for myself. First, you can add any VIN to pull up service records of a vehicle, so if you're car or truck shopping, it's a handy tool to look at vehicle history. Second, you can add your own service records, upload copies of receipts for parts and labor, input odometer readings, oil changes, vehicle maintenance, etc. You can add multiple vehicles to your "garage" and the app even knows when your registration is due and sends you reminders. You can also pull up open recalls, maintenance intervals, and keep track of your tire tread lifemfor all of your cars and trucks. All of this is directly linked to the nationwide carfax database. Some mechanic shops and all dealerships automatically update service records into this app, but if they don't, you can add them yourself. Give it a try, and embrace technology to make your life easier.
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
Developer Response ,
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.
Love this app, but...
This app is great for keeping track of services on our 7 Toyota’s. I love how it’s intuitive enough to load a vehicle by plate number, automatically receives updated registration and/or inspection info, and does a great job of keeping up with mileage. However my two small gripes with it are: 1- I don’t like the new “confirm mileage” that seems to want confirmation weekly. 3 of our vehicles are driven very rarely and digging out keys every week to check mileage and confirm is kind of a nuisance. 2- I don’t like the maintenance schedules preloaded mileage choice. For example, tires... the choices go from 5,000 to 7,500 miles between rotations. I buy all my tires at Costco, they set a 6,000 mile rotation schedule. So I either have to choose 5,000 in the app and go “over” on mileage for rotations or choose 7,500 and risk going over Costco’s 6,000 schedule because I won’t get a reminder on my app for 1,500 more miles. On a side note, what happened to the ability to change the order that my vehicles are in in my garage? I try to order mine based on how often they’re driven so the vehicles that see more use are at the top. Tonight I added a brand new vehicle and was unable to change it out of the bottom (latest) entry.
