Our Mission

According to statistics published in 2020, about 91.5% of homeowners have at least one vehicle in their garage. So it’s a large number of people somehow associated with this auto industry. And the rate of newly registered vehicles is increasing rapidly (1.3% per year). As a result, car maintenance has become prohibitively expensive ($100-$150/hour), and many people prefer to fix common and simple problems themselves rather than hire a mechanic. And here we are for your help. We have a professional mechanic on our team who helps you solve common vehicle-related problems and shares all the necessary tips so that you can be a pro-DIYer. We also review and recommend all the latest OBD2 scanners, scanning devices, diagnostic software, and apps to make your money worthwhile before buying any product. In simple words, we are saving thousands of dollars for car owners annually.
