Unfortunately, FIXD is not guaranteed to be compatible with your vehicle.
To democratize car care by giving every driver access to the transparent and easy-to-understand information they need to confidently fix and maintain their vehicle – without breaking the bank.
Because car care should be stress-free!
Who are we?
Democratizing car care by giving every driver access to transparent, easy-to-understand vehicle information
they can use.
There’s a huge problem in the auto repair industry. Cars are becoming more and more complicated. And the tools mechanics use to understand them cost a fortune. This forces the average, non-car-savvy driver to take the shop owner’s word for it instead of making an informed decision.
FIXD is on a mission to democratize the $65B auto repair and maintenance industry in the U.S. by making complex car information accessible and easy to understand by all. By translating car problems into plain, simple terms, alerting drivers when it’s time for routine maintenance, and providing on-call support from expert mechanics, FIXD takes the stress and uncertainty out of car care while helping drivers save money.
Founder & CEO
John Gattuso has always been a car guy. Growing up with a single mom, he was responsible for taking care of the family vehicle, and friends and family always knew they could count on John to help them fix their car. Out of his passion for helping others and understanding the inner workings of the automobile, John got the idea for FIXD while he was still a student at Georgia Tech.
Co-Founder & COO
As the Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer at FIXD, Frederick Grimm helps keep the ship sailing smoothly while staying on course with the future vision of the company. Fred’s background in industrial engineering at Georgia Tech came in extremely handy when the three co-founders were fielding hundreds of orders a day with the help of their friends. His perseverance, creativity, and eye for optimization helped them turn a great idea into the thriving operation it is today.
Co-Founder & CTO
FIXD Co-Founder and CTO Charles Julian Knight is a tech guy through and through. While his early interest was in electronics hardware, he kept working on the software side of things, too. Today, Julian helps lead the engineering team and tailor the app to its user base of do it yourself (DIY) and do it for me (DIFM) car owners. But he continues to make time for his love of hardware and is currently working on building an analog synth.

The founders get to work creating the best car scanner and app on the market designed for everyday people to understand their car in clear, simple terms.
CEO and Co-Founder John Gattuso developed a reputation as “the car guy” early on. Growing up with a single mom, he was responsible for taking care of the family vehicle. So when John left for Georgia Tech, he kept getting calls from friends and family asking if the information they were being told at the repair shop sounded right.
John and his fellow co-founders and Georgia Tech grads Julian Knight and Frederick Grimm realized there was a huge problem in the industry: People didn’t understand what was going on with their car. And they didn’t trust the professionals they relied on for help.
FIXD was born out of the desire to bring transparency and peace of mind to a typically stressful experience and put everyday, non-car-savvy people back in the driver’s seat.
