·         You can save money by fixing simple problems yourself 
·         You can find out why your check engine light is on
·         Know what needs to be fixed and what it should cost before seeing a mechanic

And who would not love to diagnose some of your car problems by yourself, and save $$$? 

My Review:

I’ve said if before here I like gadgets, and I really like car gadgets. I’m not Mr. Goodwrench in any way shape or form but I like to think I am and the CarMD lets me feel like I know what I’m doing because it does what I can’t. Diagnose issues with my car.

This little money saving gadget is quite amazing, it’s as simple as plugging it into your car let it gather the information then from there you plug it into your computer and in a matter of seconds you get a complete diagnosis. Hopefully everything is ok but if there is a problem the CarMD will let you know what’s wrong. And what’s better than going into a mechanic’s shop and already knowing what the issue is with your car? It’s empowering knowing that you know the issue and that you can’t be conned into maybe being told something else is wrong with your car. 

I’m due for my car inspection in the next couple of months and I’m usually a little afraid of what they’re going to “find” granted my car is new and shouldn’t have any issues but before I go to get him inspected I will plug CarMD into my car and let the Doctor do his work. Knowledge is king and we can never get enough. Better to be in the know than in the dark. You might not be a gearhead, you don’t have to be with the CarMD.

This is a great gift idea, do you know someone going off to school? Would you like have them know their car is alright, that would be great. This is a great gift for anyone who has a car, what a way to put your mind at ease.

  31. The "CHECK ENGINE" light comes on when your vehicle’s On-Board Diagnostics computer finds a problem that may affect emissions. Problems can range in severity from a loose gas cap, which wastes fuel and causes pollution, to an engine misfire, which may cause permanent damage. In any case, there is no need to panic. Most of the time, it’s just the vehicle’s computer telling you to get it looked at soon. Always reference your vehicle’s service manual for what to do when your “CHECK ENGINE” light comes on.

  32. It doesn't check for tire pressure.
