#01. Car Minder Plus

Simply having a good record of your car issues can help you predict problems and even prevent them. However, with the crazy every day schedule you probably have, you have to admit that you are having a hard time keeping track with all the vehicle whatnots that you need to remember.

This is where this app comes in handy. You no longer have to try cram all this information into your memory. The app keeps records of such things as the last time you had your tires rotated and how long it has been since you changed your oil. It can also track your fuel consumption for you, so you can concentrate on doing what you do best, putting all your car problems behind you.

It is designed specifically for iPhones and will cost you $2.99 to get it.

#02. Car Management

For the Android users, this is the app for you. It is also a vehicle tracking app, that will not only keep records of your car issues, maintenance schedules, repairs and the likes, but will also record for you the cost incurred with these operations. It helps you keep a much better watch on your car and its costs. Best thing about it? It’s free!

#03. FUZZYCar

Most of us can relate with that dreadful feeling when you get into your car, all ready and roaring to go, but when you try to turn on the ignition that annoying ‘check engine’ light comes on, and you have no idea what the problem is. It might be a loose gas cap, but then again your engine might be in real trouble.

FUZZYCar allows you to connect the diagnostic computer of your car to the internet so that you can get an idea  what exactly your car is trying to tell you. All you need is your smartphone, a WIFI scanner, and of course the app, which will cost you $4.99.

#04. Car Butler

This is an app at the android user’s service as the name suggests. It will let you know all you need to know as you go on your way, from traffic reports to weather, to even helping you calculate the expected commute time.

The free resource has an auto accident report feature as well and if your car is having problems and you desperately need a mechanic, it will suggest auto body shops that are nearby.

#05. Mobiloans

This might not be out yet, but it certainly deserves a mention. What do you do when you are out in the middle of nowhere and your car develops a problem? You do not have any cash on you so you not only need help finding a mechanic, you need help financing the repairs. This app promises to offer solutions to predicaments such as this. With Mobiloans, you should be able to access a line of credit, direct from your smartphone! Cool or what?

Well, folks, you should take advantage of these neat car maintenance app packages when it comes to your car, you will certainly have an easier time maintaining it!
