CENTREVILLE, Va., June 20, 2013 — Carfax today introduced a new, free service that makes taking care of your car easier than ever – myCARFAX. Car owners can use this new tool to track their service history and reduce the headache of keeping their car well maintained. Users receive automatic service alerts and get critical information about open safety recalls reported for their car.
Car owners can create their free myCARFAX account through a mobile app for iPhone and Android as well as online at www.mycarfax.com.
‘Keeping your vehicle well maintained can improve your resale value and keep your family safer,’ said Larry Gamache, communications director at Carfax. ‘Staying on top of what maintenance your car needs and when can be complicated, and keeping track of it all is a huge hassle. Now, myCARFAX does the work for you. Your car’s service history is automatically stored in one place whenever you visit any of the 26,000 service locations that are partnered with Carfax.’
myCARFAX also helps alleviate some common concerns for car owners. A recommended maintenance schedule informs owners about the services needed for their car at specific mileage intervals. Also, users can easily find local shops that are partnered with Carfax to take their car for service. It’s a great solution to help separate potentially unscrupulous shops with others committed to quality repairs.
‘A car is one of the biggest purchases most of us will make in our lives,’ continued Gamache. ‘Carfax is working hard to help everyone keep their cars well-maintained and our highways safer.’
myCARFAX is a free service for every car owner. Register for your free myCARFAX account at www.mycarfax.com or download the app for iPhone and Android mobile devices.
