IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Corporation, a leading provider of automotive diagnostic tools and information, announces the availability of new Health and History reports with past, present and predicted vehicle insight. Accessible online and via the new CarMD® App, the Health and History reports are ideal to assist used car buyers in their purchase decisions. For more information or to purchase a CarMD report, visit or download the CarMD app (now available on the App Store and Google Play). The cost is a bundle of five CarMD Health and History reports for $25.

"There are some great tools available to help used car and truck shoppers check vehicle history and see fair market value, but this is the first app to offer vehicle history along with CarMD's proprietary maintenance and Predictive diagnostic information," said Ieon C. Chen, CarMD's CEO. "For years CarMD has been the go-to source to empower drivers to solve check engine problems. With these new mobile tools, we are bringing our expertise to used car shoppers to help them make smart buying decisions and avoid purchasing a potential lemon." 

With each Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)-specific Health and History Report you get the following information about the vehicle you're thinking about buying – all right on your mobile device in seconds:

  • Accident; theft; hail, fire and flood damage history
  • Five-year cost of ownership
  • Average miles per gallon
  • If it has ever had its odometer rolled back
  • Sales history, market value and the most current title information
  • Upcoming maintenance items, including some beyond manufacturer recommendations
  • Exclusive CarMD Predictive Failure™ listing probability of things likely to go wrong with the vehicle in the next year and estimated cost to repair.

Both the app and CarMD Health and History reports are available to anyone, whether or not you are a CarMD tool owner. Consumers who want additional information about the current health of a vehicle – including emissions test readiness, details about why the check engine light is on and related repair costs – may be interested in purchasing a CarMD® Mobile product. This Bluetooth-enabled handheld device connects to the car's OBD2 port and works with the CarMD app to provide diagnostic information such as diagnostic trouble code severity, layperson's description of the problem, and most likely fix including parts and labor.
