I’m not a car guy, let’s be clear on that from the outset. Oh, I can change a tire, I’ve replaced brake lights, wiper fluid, and once rebuilt the engine of a 1969 Chevelle SS-454… except that not only did I not actually rebuild said engine, but in fact I probably couldn’t pick that car out of a picture of two cars.
Beyond proper vehicle operation and the bare bones basics of maintenance, I know nothing about cars, really. Fortunately, FIXD was made just for people like me.
While at first you might think a piece of hardware designed to connect to your car’s OBD-II port and run all sorts of vehicle diagnostics was developed for the die-hard gearhead, in fact it’s quite the opposite: With a FIXD app and sensor, those of us who are essentially car clueless finally have a chance to know what’s going on under the hood (and in the dashboard) without having to haul our clunker to a mechanic, credit card at the ready.
The FIXD sensor sells for $59 directly from the company’s website or from Amazon or Walmart. That’s about the same price you’d pay for a trip to most automobile maintenance shops, so right off the bat you can see potential value here; if FIXD helps you diagnose car issues even a couple of times, it will have essentially paid for itself.
