Car Owners Save Time with Mobile Service

Here’s a different way to get your car an oil change: You make an appointment online, a mobile mechanic drives to your home or office to do the work, you receive an emailed invoice and you pay online. 

Customers who have used this service have told the provider that it saves them the time that would have otherwise been spent at the shop and reduces the inconvenience of being without their vehicle while it’s getting serviced.

The J.D Power Initial Quality Study surveys new model car owners. This year it found the top complaint to be Android Auto/Apple CarPlay connectivity.

According to Dave Sargent, vice president of automotive quality at J.D. Power:

This year there are many examples of smartphone technology not working as intended in new vehicles. With more vehicles being fitted with the wireless technology owners want, the study reveals an increase in connectivity problems between smartphones and vehicles, leaving many owners unhappy.
