How is CarMD better than:
- Code Readers
- Free Code Checks at Auto Parts Stores
- Phone OBD2 Apps
CarMD is often compared with code readers and OBD2 apps. While it is true CarMD and all those tools read data from the OBD2 port, the similarities stop there. CarMD specializes in providing consumers a complete vehicle health solution in an easy-to-understand way. Not only has this never been done before, there is no other product on the market that does the same thing.
CarMD goes beyond simply defining trouble codes by using vehicle type, freeze frame engine data, and mileage to statistically determine the solution. When CarMD presents the fix, its database is sifting through more than a half-million real-life fixes made by thousands of skilled Automotive Service Excellence(ASE)-certified technicians who work on cars just like yours every day. Each fix is checked (peer reviewed) by ASE-certified Master Technicians and internally reviewed by our own ASE-certified Technicians to make sure it is the best possible solution. Our database frequently updates to ensure our customers receive the most up to date accurate fix for their vehicle from the most knowledgeable experienced professionals in the nation.
