    "How much does your car cost you? I bet you have no idea. There are so many costs involved with owning a car, such as gas, oil, tires, general maintenance, and so much more. It's hard to keep track of all the costs. But aCar has everything all solved for you. I use this app to keep track of the fuel mileage I'm getting, how long until I need an oil change or to rotate my tires, and just generally seeing how much my car is costing me. I love it."

    "Carfax is a great service that I have used many time and will continue to use it in the future. The services offered are very useful and worth the time compared to other options out there. IF you have not tired it before, try it now!"

    "Gas Buddy is a functional application that will help you save money by giving you real time gas price data and letting you know where to get the best deal. Most recent update has changed the inital user display and has some deficiencies. Will save you time in the long run as you won't need to drive around looking to get a deal."

    "Car Minder is good to use when doing maintenance on my car. It reminds me about oil changes and tires do for rotation. I haven't really grown to trust the "problem solver" aspect. It has yet to "make me save money.""

    "It's fair for what it does, and it looks like they tried. I've used it a few times, and find it to be a really good idea that's kind of poorly implemented. The reminders are nice, and the MPG calculator can be a fun tool. But the way it was made drives me nuts, and unfortunately away from the product, as the the UI and odd design choices make this app a struggle to enjoy. "

    "Gas Cubby is wonderful when it comes to reminding you about maintenance on your car. Before I used this, I would never remember when to get my oil changed and tires rotated. With hectic day to day life, it's nice to get a reminder for it. The fuel economy feature is kind of redundant if you have a newer car. Most cars already have this function. "

    "I love that it gives me the possibility to edit the list of maintenance items and not only change their names and add new ones but it also allows me to specify scheduled maintenance intervals for each thing as i want! It gives you alerts too and has a pleasant easy to use interface. It handles fuel economy too but thats where it lacks. I had to find another app for that because this one doesn't graph the data over time and i kind of wanted that feature. But other than that it is great!"

    "I used to keep track of my car maintenance using Excel but I found something so much better. The Car Maintenance app has a reminder feature so you never forget when your car needs to go to the auto shop."
