LOS ANGELES, Sept. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Celebrity, comedian, and famed "car guy" Adam Carolla is announcing the launch of Adam Carolla's Car Genius™, a mobile app designed to empower consumers to manage their cars The Carolla Way. The creation of this all-purpose app brings a cool new technology to car owners everywhere: a way for users to keep track of everything related to their cars all in one convenient place. Featuring a customized factory-recommended maintenance schedule for up to six cars, the app helps consumers know what service their vehicles are due for at the appropriate mileage intervals.
"It's been said, you can pay me now, or you can pay me later," quotes Carolla on the necessity of taking care of vehicles at the proper time, rather than waiting and having bigger, more expensive problems down the road. "With about 250 million cars on the road and 79% more than six years old, we have an aging population of cars that need TLC and we want to help owners save money and make them last."
Whether it's an exotic sports car or family minivan, the app allows users to quickly look up factory-recommended maintenance for any vehicle by make, model, and mileage interval back to 1987. A store locator and access to hot deals under Adam's Picks encourages users to check back frequently for special deals on a variety of products. The "My Service" section enables users to store insurance cards, vehicle information, and service history, as well as set alerts and reminders for future service for each car saved in the app.
"It's a digital wallet for your car," states Deborah Castro, CMO and technology partner, Adam Carolla's Car Genius. "We are excited about providing an app that is truly relevant and useful to everyone who owns a car. Adam cares about his fans and wants them to have access to information that is often hard to find."
Beginning October 1, 2016, users who download Adam Carolla's Car Genius app can enter for a chance to join Adam and the Carolla Lackeys on a 3-day Baja, Mexico Cruise, the first annual Adam Carolla Show Experience. The cruise includes a complimentary bottle of Mangria, Adam's signature wine-cocktail line, tickets to a live audience taping of the Adam Carolla Show, an invitation to the Adam Carolla Meet & Greet cocktail party sponsored by Carolla Drinks, and an invitation to a private screening of Road Hard, followed by an exclusive question and answer session with Adam Carolla. The sweepstakes will run through October 31, 2016 and provides users with an opportunity to increase their chance to win by offering daily entries. Users are also given bonus entries when they register for a Car Genius account through the app.
"We feel it is important that this app tells it straight—just the facts, only maintenance that's required—no extra 'flush and fills,'" said Carolla. "Now, vehicle owners can be armed with information before they take their cars in for service, and do-it-yourselfers will have reliable information about the parts they need and where to get the best deals, thanks our partners and sponsors."
Carolla, a "car genius" in his own right, hosts a daily podcast, The Adam Carolla Show, which receives more than one million downloads a day, in addition to several other topical and co-hosted podcasts, such as CarCast, a weekly show, devoted to car enthusiasts. Carolla, along with co-host Matt D'Andrea take listeners out to the track or behind the scenes with people in and around the automotive industry. In 2015, Carolla produced and directed the film, Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman, chronicling the car racing career of Paul Newman.
Adam Carolla's Car Genius is free to download and available in both iTunes and Google Play app stores. Visit www.cargeniusapp.com for more information.
