These Apps will Save Your Car's Life!

These FREE apps are helpful to keep up with gas, maintenance, so add them to your smartphone, since it's attached to your hand anyways.


1. myCARFAX™ Car Maintenance App: We’re very familiar with “Show me the CARFAX™.” We get a look at the vehicle’s history, knowing where it’s been and what services have been reported or done. Well, in addition to that, this wonderful app lets you manually report services done to your vehicle and update its maintenance. You receive alerts about upcoming services due like an oil change or tire rotation and registration or emissions. The app also lets you know of any open recalls, estimates the current mileage of your vehicle and provides a maintenance schedule. All at the touch of your finger.

2. GasBuddy: Who doesn't want to save on gas if the opportunity comes around? With this app, you’ll be able to save time and save money by finding cheaper gas nearby based on information provided by a community of millions of other users. Pay it forward by reporting gas prices to contribute and help others. In doing so, you’ll earn points and achievements. In addition, you can enter to win $100 in free gas every day.

3. AAA Mobile: If you have this valuable membership, the app is handy to have. Add your membership card with Passbook (iPhone OS 6 or later), use Roadside Assistance and Maps & Discounts features. Even if you don’t have a member, you can still use the incomparable trip planner functions.

4. MyCar Locator Free (Android) & Find Your Car with AR: Augmented Car Finder (Apple): We've all been there. You park your vehicle and go about your business until you need to leave and can’t remember for the life of you where the car is parked. These apps literally help you find your car. So have no fear when headed to the grocery store or mall. Together with these apps, we can conquer mass parking lots head-on.

5. Waze: Where would be without this lovely little app? Probably stuck in traffic because we had no idea what we were literally driving into until it was too little too late. You type in your destination address and drive with the app open on your phone. This passively contributes traffic and road data. You can proactively report accidents, police traps or any other hazards on the road to help alert others of what’s to come, should they be heading in that direction. Waze is essentially a community of online map editors who ensure that the data in their areas is as up-to-date as possible. Team work makes the dream work.
