    "This is not an app to manage your car, it's an app to manage how you get from a spot to another via maps. While it'll help you keep miles off your car by allowing you to read updates on maps from others in the area, that's about all it'll do."

    "This looks like an outstanding application. It really meets the needs of the user by providing a very easy way to keep logs of your cars maintenance and other information. I always find myself writing down on a piece of paper or just jotting notes like this into a notepad app, but this application seems like it would make things much easier and more convenient. "

    "I was disappointed with this app. It works great in some places, but not in indoor parking facilities. When I went to Toronto and had trouble remembering which parking garage that I used, the GPS did not pick up when I tried the app."

    "This app is OK for finding gas stations, but not for overall car management. Since it's really just a gas station finder, I think I'd look elsewhere to manage things like maintenance schedules, mileage, etc."

    "Torque Pro is probably the most innovative car management app that I can immediately think of. It's one of those things you never knew you wanted. The management options are plentiful because this thing actually connects to your engine. This is the equivalent of a light weight diagnostics check. This app has the potential to keep your repair and maintenance costs way down on your car. Any app that can do that for me is well worth the download."

    "MMGuardian was a huge disappointment. I was looking for an app that would provide car management, so I can keep on top of when I needed to have my oil change and other crucial care maintenance concerns. MMGuardian did not any of this. It may be helpful for management of kids, but for management of your car you may need to look elsewhere."

    "Really like that it helps me to see what my monthly fuel consumption has been. Also lets me check all the details I may have about repairs that I make. Bought the paid version because it saves all my updates on the cloud and allows you to save more details about types of fixes."
