“Just like people, cars get sick too, and the only way they can tell us what’s wrong is through the ‘check engine’ light…”
The dreaded check engine light. If you don’t speak “car” language or know a trustworthy mechanic, the check engine light could cost you thousands in unnecessary repairs.
If you’ve ever taken your car for a routine oil change only to be hit with a laundry list of “recommended” repairs from the mechanic, you’re not alone.
It’s unfortunate but true.
Every 10 years or so an innovative product comes along to disrupt an entire industry and shift the balance of power back to the consumer. Amazon did it for shopping, Apple did it for smartphones, and now there’s this…
It’s called Viecar OBD2 brought to you by Driving100, and it was invented by four students from Georgia Tech University who were tired of feeling exploited every time their cars needed repairs. They were inspired to create a simple solution every car owner could use to save money and keep from being taken advantage of.
Viecar is an easy-to-use, easy-to-understand diagnostic tool car owners across the country are raving about and expert mechanics are calling a “game changer” for every car owner who has one.
In plain English, it’s like a heart monitor for your car.
It’s simple. Every car sold in the US in 1996 or later is required to have an OBD (on board diagnostics) port. It’s the same port where mechanics connect their code readers to diagnose car problems. It’s easy to find, usually located under the dash below the steering wheel.
All you do is plug it in, download the Mini OBD II app for iOS or Torque for Android in the appstore. Once you have downloaded the app, there is a option to connect the Viecar OBD2 via bluetooth. We recommend using the app Torque, as it will diagnose most common issues that come up when that 'check engine' light comes on. However if you are a true car junkie you can really take over your vehicle's computer system and do some crazy things. There are some awesome videos on youtube showing you how.
Viecar provides an easy-to-understand explanation of the problem, and an estimate of what it should cost to fix and all of the information is displayed conveniently on your phone.
It can also help find the nearest repair shop to you!
Now you don’t need to speak “car” to understand what’s wrong, and you’ll finally understand what those ominous warning lights really mean…
The check engine light doesn’t always mean there’s a major problem. Something as simple as a loose gas cap could trigger the light on the dash.
However it could be a problem that’s considerably worse and without taking your car to a mechanic how would you ever know?
If there’s a serious problem that needs immediate attention Viecar will tell you about it and how to handle it. It tells you exactly what’s wrong with your car before you call the mechanic – or a tow truck, and that can save you a lot of money! How awesome is that?!
Viecar can also reset the check engine light right from your phone. That way if it is just a loose gas cap you won’t have to pay the mechanic just to reset the light!
They really thought of everything when they designed this incredible diagnostic tool. Viecar provides all the information you need to negotiate confidently with any mechanic.
