Ratings and Reviews
A waste of time and loss of records.
I installed this app a long time ago to keep all of my cars maintenance records in one place and clean up some paper clutter. It worked good for a long time until last week when I tried to open the app and could not log into to my account. I received a message saying that Carfax had detected commercial activity on my account and blocked me from accessing my account. I know for sure that my account was not used commercially as it’s only signed in on my phone and no where else. I emailed customer support and received a reply telling me that the mycarfax app is not for commercial use and that I would need to purchase a commercial account. My work is in aviation and we don’t use/need carfax for anything with airplanes so there’s no reason to tell me that nonsense. So I kept very detailed logs of our 4 cars and now ALL of that information is gone unless I pay $$$. I learned long ago that nothing is for free and have learned that’s true with Carfax! Do yourself a favor and keep your maintenance records listed somewhere else. I’m out 3 years of maintenance history now, all thanks to Carfax.
Good try but company is unresponsive
Should be ZERO stars. Customer service, what’s that? CARFAX has absolutely no idea. I email them, I contact them through the app, nothing. nada. I still can’t change or update bad data. This is simply a way to keep the name CARFAX on your mind so you may be tempted to use the service where they make their money. Through CARFAX reports. Save your time, there are MUCH better vehicle apps in the App Store.
Still nothing from customer service. The recent update seems good but does not address the fundamental problem. A user CANNOT edit or change most of the info you enter. And if the preprogrammed values are wrong, forget about it. They will NEVER change. These facts reduce this app to a fun but useless game.
The app is actually good, but DO NOT expect any kind of support, they don't care! This is a way to keep the CARFAX name on your mind in hopes you will pay money to use their service.
I was asked to be a beta tester for My CarFax and I thought I might be able to offer some suggestions so I gave it a try. I even had a FaceTime session with them. But, NOTHING has come if it or any of my suggestions. My suggestions may not have been earth shattering but at first they would respond to my emails, but No more! It's like CarFax is giving up on the app, recent updates notwithstanding.

Nice, but very limited
If you want to manage your personal cars, and only want updates on oil changes, plate registration, and tire rotation, your search is over; this is a good app for that. You can also browse through your reported service history, and with a VIN or license plate #, you can get a mini-Carfax report (but no crash/salvage data).
However, this app can only handle 8 cars, so if you have a small fleet, it won’t work. You also can’t manage other things like air filters, cabin air filters, and other fluid checks, but you can add receipts for them.
I wanted to like this app, but the artificial limits on number of cars and inability to add other maintenance means I have to find a different app to manage those things.
Get all of your passes, tickets, cards, and more in one place.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
