RepairPal targets iPhone users
There’s just this thing about bringing your car to the mechanic – I don’t know about you, but I can personally vouch for the fact that my car was running fine for a couple of years until I brought it to the mechanic for a minor tweak. Throughout the first two years, I kept to the maintenance schedule religiously, and never had a problem. That is until, the fateful day where I drove my jalopy to the aforementioned mechanic to replace some cables whose time was up – shortly after that, my car started to experience all sorts of other weird problems including the air conditioning breaking down, a busted radiator and less mileage despite not changing my driving habits to that of having a foot made out of lead. Did the mechanic repair something only to jiggle and loosen a few parts without my knowledge so that I can be a repeat customer? I guess I’ll never know, but boy did I wish the iPhone was released back then along with the RepairPal software.
For those who are not in the know, RepairPal is the leading, award-winning destination for auto repair and maintenance information, and it is nice to see them release an iPhone application so that consumers will have ever greater options when it comes to auto repair pricing transparency and roadside assistance as and when required, be it on the road or at any repair shop. Since RepairPal has no affiliation with other motor workshops, you can be sure that whatever results it throws your way will not be skewed in any manner as there is no vested interest – instead, as a consumer, you will receive nothing but the fairest price as well as the right mechanic to help you save both money and time.
