    PROS: The sensor and app work as advertised and solve a longstanding and irritating problem for me. My car is 13 years old and for the last two or three years the check engine light comes on because the catalytic converter is not working well enough to meet exhaust standards. Since I’m not going to replace the catalytic converter, I’ve had to get the check engine light cleared by a repair shop at least four times now, and a couple of months later it will come back on again. Now, with FIXD, I can verify that the warning light is for the catalytic converter and not for something more serious, and I can clear the light myself without having to go to a repair shop.

    CONS: The setup instructions could be clearer and the app a little more user-friendly. The instructions basically tell you to download the app, install the sensor, and open the app with bluetooth enabled and the engine running. Well, before you install the sensor, you need to write down the device number that’s printed on there, since you’ll need to enter it in the app. If you didn’t write down the number, you’ll have to crawl back under your dash to retrieve the sensor and reinstall it. Also, you have to register the app and get your car’s VIN before you can connect to your sensor. Then, you have to enter a bluetooth pairing code (huh?) to pair your phone with the sensor (I guessed “1234” and it worked). The app needs some “cancel” buttons or back arrows for when you’ve taken a wrong path and want to go back. For instance, if you’ve renamed the sensor and then tap on the sensor name by mistake, you get a choice of renaming the device again or deleting it, but no choice to cancel. These are one-time setup issues that I expect the company will make clearer soon and they don’t affect the operation of the sensor, so I’m not taking any points off.

    Very easy to set up, didn’t need to pair or anything the app just connected to it. First scan found a bad O2 sensor that I fixed for $30. Probably saved me hundreds.

    HEADS UP: This didn’t work on 1 of my vehicles, contacted support and they got back to me quickly. Turns out I had a blown fuse in my second vehicle. There’s a blue light that flashes inside the sensor when you plug it in. If it DOES NOT FLASH that means your OBD-II port doesn’t have power. For my vehicle the cigarette lighter and OBD-II port share a circuit, and since I never use my cigarette lighter I never bothered to fix it. Swapping the fuse fixed my vehicle and the sensor worked normally after that.

    Also I was surprised to see that the app tracks tire wear/can show you tire tread health. I must be doing too many burn outs ;) They really didn’t advertise that feature, guess it’s new.

    I’d say 10/10, nifty little tool and I’m looking forward to seeing what they add to it. Plan on picking a few up for holiday gifts.

    So my engine light was on for a few days, and I made an appointment with my mechanic. I decided to get this to see if I could fix it myself. I got it the night before my appointment and it took me all of 5 minutes to download the app and plug it in. Very easy, I have a Jeep and the port was right under the dash. So it came up as a thermostat that was going bad. I kept my appointment with my mechanic because I knew I couldn’t fix that myself, but I didn’t say a word about what could be wrong. They diagnosed the same thing so now I know it really works!

    Best thing ever!!!! I bought it due to needing a car quick. Took this everywhere I went to see cars. Saved me from getting “nice looking cars bit once plugged in, all the codes popped up like a Christmas lights. Wow. Incredible how much info this provided. Paid for itself just on the first car alone it avoided me from buying. Best part is even for your own car, it keeps an eye out on things and tells you suggested maintenance schedules to keep you on track.

    Plugged in. Looked up code on Google. Gave reasons and items that might need checking and where shops immediately spend your money and may not be the problem. Immediately diagnosed issue of lean fuel mixture. I had noticed a clacking in valves temporarily then check engine light came on then clacking cleared, just after getting fuel at a station I suspected had a very low tank. After reading up on issues, I cleared message from dash. Been running truck since. No light and running smooth. It suggested water or trash passed through fuel line and caused the temporary symptom and set light off. Will monitor but this could have cost quite a bit if the shop started stabbing at the symptoms by replacing things trial and error. Very good product.

    Bought this for my mom for help with car problems since my father passed away. It took no time to plug it into her car and the app is very easy to understand. Looking forward to her having real-time, easy to understand feedback if something happens to her car. Very impressed with how easy it is to use.
