    "In order to keep your car running smoothly and maintain its value, proper maintenance and documentation is a must. Unfortunately, if you're like me, you have a tendency to forget these things until it's too late. This is where Car Maintenance comes in. This app does a great job of letting me know what is coming up at a glance so I can budget for it and make sure all the maintenance is completed on time. "

    "Torque Lite is a handy app to monitor and check your car's computer. I've used it to read check engine codes and clear them after fixing the problem. If I didn't have this and the scanner for my car, I would have had to go to a mechanic that would charge me to clear it. I don't use the app often, but I keep it for when I need it. Definitely worth the purchase price just for the engine code clearing alone."

    "Torque Pro is the best 4.95 you will spend. You know how that silly check engine light comes on for everything? Get this app, you set it up with your car, and it will tell you while that light is on, in my case it was something as small as my gas cap. This is a wonderful tool, save the money for mechanics for when they are needed and dont pay 60.00 to find out you need a gas cap"
