London, Ontario — CARFAX Canada is introducing Car Care, a free service that tracks customer maintenance schedules.
CARFAX Canada Car Care helps vehicle owners stay on top of complicated car maintenance schedules and takes the hassle out of keeping track of service records. All it takes to sign up is an email address and the license plates or VINs they want to add via this link.
“We’re proud to launch Car Care as it helps Canadians keep their vehicles in top condition which we know is not always an easy task,” shares Mark Rousseau, president, and general manager at CARFAX Canada. “Given that a car is one of the most significant investments you’ll make in your lifetime, it’s understandable that you want to take great care of it. Car Care makes this task simple with convenient reminders, a search function for trusted shops, and digital record keeping all in one place.”
One in five vehicles have an open recall, and research by CARFAX Canada uncovered that Canadians want an easy way to know if the vehicle has been impacted. Car Care gives Canadians peace of mind by providing automatic recall alerts that can help owners be aware of open recalls that impact how their vehicle runs and it’s safety.
Additional benefits of Car Care include helpful reminders and alert users of upcoming service recommendations specific to their vehicle. The app has a search feature that helps users find participating service shops in their area. The listings come with local ratings and reviews, taking away the guesswork out of which shops can be trusted for quality repair and maintenance.
Another feature of the app is it’s access to historical maintenance service done at participating shops by previous owners. This feature provides important information to the current vehicle owner, regarding which services were completed in the past and the sequence that they were performed.
Lastly, the app has the capability to automatically track and store services completed by participating shops, easily keeping a digital record of a vehicle’s service history in one place. These records are valuable when it comes time to sell the vehicle, helping to prove to the seller that it’s in great shape.
According to CARFAX, many Canadians have reported that Car Care saved them from having to dig through paper receipts in their glovebox or consult the user manual to know which services have been completed on their vehicle. Furthermore, many owners were not sure exactly which service the vehicle required next, especially if they have an older model that’s not under any warranty anymore.
Canadian car owners can create a free CARFAX Canada Car Care account online at this link, or by downloading the app for iPhones and Androids.
