The main use is the cost estimates for everything. It’s powerful to be able to hold that up to the mechanic and be like ‘wait a second, that estimate is way over.'

Love FIXD Premium. Went to a mechanic and he told me I needed much more done to my Hyundai and I told him to fix only what the app said to repair. He then asked how I know, I showed him the FIXD recommended repair and cost. Never went back.

This has been a big money saver for me. I was having car problems and I took it to the shop. $500 to fix the car. I decided to buy this before doing the repairs and glad I did. The problem was just a mass air flow sensor. Part was only $90 and I went on YouTube and fixed it in 15 minutes with a screw driver.

If you own a vehicle you absolutely have to get one, I put in the info and it told me exactly what the problem was and rated the seriousness of it, and provided locations where I could get it fixed without getting overcharged.

Easily top 3 if not top product I have ever purchased on Amazon. Easy to set up, install, and use. The premium service is excellent with a 24/7 mechanic helpline (who went above and beyond). I had a check engine light come in with a throttle control motor specifies as the issue. In total I spent $50 for the Device, $9 for a month of premium, and $20 on a relay. Problem solved (after talking it through with the call in mechanic). I spend $79 total, or could pay $120 for a diagnostic, and still not resolve my issue. 100% would purchase again and recommend.

I called the mechanic hotline and believe you me, my money... was well spent. I spoke to John and he was a gentleman. Didn't talk down to me... answered my questions and told me to never hesitate to call for any reason about the car. Thank you so much for the ability to call a mechanic when I need help. I appreciate it and believe you me I will tell everyone what a class A company FIXD is.
