FixD Review

Features

  • Immediate Diagnosis

    It can be rather discouraging to have to take the time out to visit a mechanic on a regular basis out of one’s busy schedule, just to hear the mechanic tell you your car’s problem. By just connecting this device to your car, you will know exactly what’s wrong with your car and also how to fix it. Everything will be displayed on your mobile phone with the help of the app and the Bluetooth function. You’ll know if there’s anything wrong with either, the transmission, cooling system, brakes or even your car’s engine itself.

  • Size Doesn’t Matter

    When it comes to storing this device, size really doesn’t matter. This device is so small and compact that it can be stored practically anywhere you like. You can choose to keep it in your car’s glovebox or your hand or even in your pocket if you are in a rush and don’t know what to do with it at the time. It is ultra-portable and does not involve you having to go through all the trouble of making separate space within the boot of your car just so you can get this device operational.

  • Bluetooth Compatibility

    It’s all well that there’s an app that you can download for free onto your mobile phone. However, when it comes to your mobile phone connecting to this device, don’t worry, it’s not complicated or cumbersome. There’s no need to be untwining wires and cords just so you can get your phone connected to the device. You don’t even need to worry about potentially losing a connecting cable for the device that would then make it next to impossible for your phone to connect to the device.

    Thanks to Bluetooth technology, your phone’s Bluetooth ability can quite simply be used to connect with the device by pairing with the device’s Bluetooth software. This completely eliminates the need for dangling wires and cords connecting your device to your mobile phone.

Benefits

  • Downloadable App for Free

    There’s no denying the importance of all sorts of apps in our everyday life these days. They’ve become such an integral part of our lives that they could be very much regarded as special dishes or recipes that have been created for us to make life easy. The importance of having an app for this device, and to have it easily accessible was not something that the makers of Micro Mechanic missed making a note of.

    As such, this device has available a free app that is compatible with any kind of smartphone device, may it be an android or an iPhone, while staying compatible with the device itself.

  • Double Offer

    If you are really interested in the product and want to buy one for your friend or a member of your family, then please don’t worry about making two separate purchases. You can avail of the Double Offer benefit that comes along with this device, allowing you to pay just a nominal extra fee for a second device to be sent along with your purchase. One doesn’t necessarily need to shell out the entire cost of two devices merely because one preferred having two instead of one.

  • Provides Valuable Heads-up

    It pays to be well prepared before heading out for a long drive or trip that you know will involve miles and miles of not being able to find a car mechanic en route. Knowing the condition of one’s car in advance is critically important for such journeys. Using this device just before your journey might be able to shed light on the overall health of your car and what to do to fix it before heading out. This is certainly a valuable heads-up that any car-owner would always appreciate.

How it's Different from Competitors

When your car is in dire need to help and repair, the last thing a user wants to have to deal with is complex, convoluted terminology and explanation of the issue at hand. Rather than telling you a complicated story about your car, this device will give you an itemized, structured representation of the required fixes needed and how to go about it. The details covered would include a brief description of the issue, how long the fix would take and how much it would cost.

It is natural to worry about the type of car and its compatibility with this device, before purchasing this product. However, with Micro Mechanic, you need not worry about this kind of compatibility issues, as this device is compatible with all 1196 models and onwards. As long as your car has a computing system that functions normally, it should be a breeze using this device along with your car with complete peace of mind.

There’s one thing that one needs to be careful about, and that is, whether the device one is buying needs any special kind of software to run it. However, that is something you don’t need to worry about at all when it comes to Micro Mechanic. This device is built to automatically sync with your car and then also pair-up via Bluetooth with your phone, all without the need to install or run any special type of software in advance.

There is no need to first install any special kind of software in order to be able to start using this device. All that is needed is in the device and there’s no need for installation CDs or software. Using plug-n-play technology, all you have to do is just plug it in.

Save Money

On taking one’s car to a car mechanic for an opinion and repair, one can never tell whether the car mechanic is genuine or not. The car mechanic might at times potentially give you misleading information in order to make some fast money without you realizing it.

You can prevent this by simply running your own diagnostics with the help of this tool, thus, verifying the authenticity of your mechanic’s diagnosis. This can save you unnecessary cost incurred by improper diagnosis.

Downfalls

  • Date

    Earlier models of cars are less likely to have the port that allows the product to be plugged into the car. While the majority of people will be in newer cars, there are still a lot of older cars or those without the data port. In many cases, it is these older models that will still be able to run for years to come but have a few little niggly issues that the user would benefit from.

  • Shipping

    This isn't the biggest item on the market in terms of sales and the producers are aware of this. To counter increased costs they are using lower run rates and filling orders on a less steady basis. This has resulted in a rather long wait time on orders arriving, something that similar products might not suffer with.

  • Smartphone

    A smartphone is essential in order to use this product. While the majority of people have a smartphone already, for the older generation or those who don't like smartphone technology it makes this product essentially redundant. The Micro Mechanic has been created for ease of use for the user, making it as simple and easy to understand as possible. For those with less tech knowledge, it is an almost impossible task to get the app to work properly.

    Similarly, if there is an issue with the car that occurs when the user doesn't have any phone battery then it won't help with diagnostics.

Concerns

  • Consumer Numbers

    As this is such a new product with a small following it is difficult to know how effective the product is likely to be. While the advert makes the Micro Mechanic look simple and easy to use there is no way of knowing whether there are likely to be issued on a large scale. It is natural that a percentage of the products sold will return errors until there are high numbers on the market there's no way to know whether this is something to avoid or not.

  • Tech

    This product has been designed with the less tech-savvy in mind, however, this in itself produces concerns. Pairing the device with the app on your smartphone might seem simple to the majority of people, there are plenty of people who will find this difficult and will, therefore, find the product essentially useless.

Easy to Use

  1. Plug in

    The product is ready to use straight from the box and simply needs plugging into the data port on your car.

  2. Download App

    Once it is plugged into the car the user needs to install the app on their phone for free.

  3. Sync

    The product then needs to be synced with the app and it will then evaluate the car and send feedback straight to the smartphone app.

Does It Really Work?

Yes! The Micro Mechanic is an excellent addition to anybody with a car and a smartphone. It is a great way to ensure that the mechanic has a good idea of what is wrong with the car. The product will also notify the user of smaller issues such as a loose gas cap which can make it an excellent money saver in next to no time.

Which File to Download

I recently received the Micro Mechanic as a gift and it has several different options for files to download. Obd auto doctor, mini obdii, car scanner elm obd2, carista, dashboard, trackaddict, obd car doctor, and torque. I know that the torque has a premium version costs money but I was wondering about the other options. I have a 2007 chevrolet silverado 1500 and I'm not sure what program to download on my phone. If there are any suggestions that you could offer it would be greatly appreciated.

Garbage

Hypothetically it is a fantastic thing to have and will save you money and time. However, this product is not, will not, and won't. Don't waste your time or money. The fact that they lie to you right off the bat about a "free" app, which is FALSE, says enough. Garbage pushed at u with promise of convenience just to get your money.

Scam

I'm a mechanic and this product lies when it says it tells you how much it costs to fix it (parts and labor), because every garage has different prices. I had a customer come in and send this product said oxygen sensor was bad. It was wrong the issue wasn't even close to what it said. The real fix cost $64.00 this product fix would have been $358.00. DON'T buy this will cost you more money then it's worth.

Do not buy

I made a mistake and wound up buying two deals for a total of 4 units. Neither my i-phone nor my Android phone will recognize them or see them as blue-tooth devices. A total waste of money!

DO NOT BUY!

I bought one, Had the check engine light come on, Had already downloaded the recommended app. Plugged all in and it would connect. Tried the other apps with no success, Call the Tech department this morning to see why it was not working. I was told it is not compatible with and I phone 8 or I phone 10 and that I would have to use an older phone. Are you kidding me! In my opinion they need to up grade the app or stop selling it as no where in the adds does it say so. POS for sure!

Since I so NOT have internet on my phone, how do I access the diagnostic? Going in my apt. To get onto my desktop while device is plugged into my vehicle - is in NO way practical.

I guess if you don't get the double order, they will just cancel your order. Don't fall for this scam. Probably wasn't worth it anyway

Scam Alert.

Micromechanic

They won't tell you the app name or if it is "limitware" ( free to download but to make it fully work, you have to buy it or even pay per use ).
One person said 1 to 2 weeks delivery then hung up, the second said 4 to 6 weeks. Customer service disconnects after 2 rings.
Don't trust that company.
