Anyone can pop the hood on their car and do the basic stuff themselves – if only they knew how.
Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) February 08, 2012
CarCareKiosk, a startup that shows users free how to videos that are specific to their car, is announcing the official launch of its flagship website, CarCareKiosk.com. CarCareKiosk empowers its users to perform basic maintenance and repairs on their own cars by offering free videos covering over 60 different repairs for most cars on the road today. The Company’s platform plays a custom video for each vehicle and repair based on the user’s year, make, model and engine attributes.
While there are over 240 million cars in the U.S., over half of these cars suffer from neglected basic maintenance and repair work that could easily be done by car owners. “We believe that anyone can pop the hood on their car and do the basic stuff themselves – if only they knew how,” said Hans Angermeier, CEO of CarCareKiosk. “Our videos empower users to keep a better eye on their cars, save money and diagnose small problems early that can otherwise turn into large ones down the road.”
New car sales have plummeted 36% from 2007 to 2009 and consequently the average age of cars on the road is a record 10.8 years. Older cars require more maintenance and repairs and are less likely to be covered under warranty. CarCareKiosk currently has over 8,000 videos in its library to help car owners learn how to fix their cars. “By providing vehicle-specific videos, we create a personalized experience for our users that highlights the nuances of their particular car,” said Hans.
CarCareKiosk has a sleek and uncluttered design that is highly functional. Unlike many other automotive websites that require users to choose their car from a series of five or six dropdown menus, CarCareKiosk users select their car by typing freely. The vehicle search will automatically narrow down the results in real time – much like Google’s autosuggest feature. Another notable feature is the ability to save the maintenance history to a profile that updates the mileage automatically.
