FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Nov. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- CarMD.com Corporation announced today that its popular CarMD® Vehicle Health System™ consumer automotive product is now available for purchase in Canada. An ideal gift for anyone who owns a car or truck, CarMD can be purchased online at www.mycarmd.ca for C$119.85.
"After substantial demand from the Canadian market, we are pleased to finally make the CarMD product and information available to drivers throughout Canada," said Art Jacobsen, vice president of CarMD. "CarMD is committed to offering our customers the most precise information to diagnose and repair car problems. We offer so much more than just a gadget. The true value of CarMD is in the vast database that provides our customers with the most statistically valid fix down to parts and labor costs in their postal code."
Jacobsen adds that in order to bring this product to the Canadian market, CarMD's team of automotive technicians needed to ensure the database included accurate and up-to-date repair information specific to Canada's unique environment and vehicle population.
The CarMD Vehicle Health System is ready to use right out of the box, and includes everything to monitor a car's health – an easy-to-use handheld device, Mac/PC software, USB cable, two AAA batteries, handy caddy, and lifetime software and firmware updates. It works on all 1996 and newer cars, trucks, vans and SUVs manufactured for use in North America – foreign and domestic.
CarMD taps the same technology used by professional mechanics, but no automotive experience is needed to use it. Just plug the device into a vehicle's on-board diagnostic port (don't worry, CarMD.com will show you where it is on your car), and CarMD does the rest. The device is ideal for uncovering hidden car problems, inspecting used cars and diagnosing check engine light issues without needing to pop the hood or get dirty. It includes lifetime software and firmware updates and free access to CarMD's award winning database to generate personalized Vehicle Health Reports, which can reduce car repair bills. These reports also reveal if your car has safety issues or recalls. When repairs are required, CarMD tells you what's wrong and what it will take to fix it, including parts and labor costs in your region, so you don't overpay for repairs.
The mission of CarMD.com Corporation is to empower consumers and the vehicle market by providing the tools and information needed to make better-educated decisions about vehicle health and maintenance.
