Compatibility fixes for newer versions of iOS
Ratings and Reviews
I really think this app has the potential to be great, but they REALLY need to fix the bug that is causing users to continuously receive an error message every time you try to update your profile or refresh the recalls associated with your vehicle. It looks like the app developers haven’t done an update for this app in several months. Given the fact that there have been multiple iOS software updates from Apple over the past 60-90 days, this app is LONG OVERDUE for an update to resolve these ongoing error message issues I can only assume are caused by this app’s incompatibility with the more recent iOS updates. WHAT’S THE HOLDUP??
Fix the bugs please
The headlines and my recalls section has stopped working weeks ago. Notifications are sent for many recalls that do not apply to my vehicles. Hoping for needed improvements. This could be a useful app if fixed.
Typical Garbage from a Government Agency
Just downloaded this app, says it is supposed to be 2.17 but the app shows 2.13. I tried to add my vehicle to my profile and received an error. As a retired software engineer this app functionality is completely unacceptable. If there were an option for no stars that is what I would give this unfortunate mess.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
