Car Care FAQ

My vehicle's make and/or model is not listed in the app. Can I still use Car Care?
Yes! Car Care allows you to add a new Make or Model when adding a new car by tapping the + in the upper right corner. You can then enter in any exotic or rare vehicle's make or model.

How do I delete a vehicle?
Use the same method as deleting a message in the mail program: swipe your finger from left to right on the car's photo on the main screen, then tap "Delete" to permanently remove the car.

What is the vehicle code and password, and what is an import?
The vehicle code and password are optional, and are used only if you have data on your computer that you would like to import into your iPhone. The code and password are generated after you import data through Car Care's import data web page.
