Buying a car in the U.S. is very affordable, however, the maintenance fees are extremely high. Each time I bring by car for regular maintenance, it easily costs me more than $500 although I don’t see any problem with my car at all.
Most car owners are not mechanical and know very little about their cars, that’s the reason why the auto repair centers could easily get more money from your pocket. When I heard about Zubie, I was very excited and curious how the device could make car maintenance easy and less expensive. If it is like advertised, this is truly a must-have gadget for car lovers, or any driver.
The Zubie is said to help us monitor our cars, diagnose repair issues and make daily driving a peace of mind. Basically, it is a small smart device that could plugin into a standard port in most cars, and all the information about your car will be transmitted to an app on your iPhone or Android.
