CENTREVILLE, Va.—Carfax Inc., an R.L. Polk & Co. unit, has unveiled a free Carfax mobile app to help car owners track a vehicle's service history and maintenance schedules.
Owners create a free myCARFAX account through a mobile app for iPhone and Android or online at www.mycarfax.com.
The company said a vehicle's service history is automatically stored in one place whenever a motorist visits any of 26,000 Carfax-partnered service locations.
A recommended maintenance schedule informs owners of services needed for their car at specific mileage intervals. The app also finds local service shops partnered with Carfax.
Carfax said it operates a vehicle history database of more than 11 billion vehicle records from more than 75,000 sources across North America.
