»Posted by on Jan 2, 2013 in News | Comments Off on Top 5 Automobile Apps in 2012

From getting the best deal with a new automobile purchase to finding the lowest gas prices, these top five automobile apps from 2012 will not only provide you with great information, they will help save you money.

Gas Buddy

Inspired by the desire to slash high gas prices, Gas Buddy is a free app that directs you to the cheapest gas prices in your area. Users enter prices and by selecting the area where you are located you get a list of the lowest prices within your range. Not only can this app save you money on fuel purchases, it is also free.

Edmunds

The Edmunds app is like having your own personal negotiator with you when you are looking to purchase a new vehicle. The app has data, reviews and stats on vehicles and includes a mapping system to show you dealerships located near you that have your chosen vehicle in stock.

An added feature in the Edmunds app provides the average selling price of the vehicle in your purchasing range. If you are dealing with an aggressive sales person, you have an accurate price on the vehicle to be able to
counter-offer.

Kelley Blue Book

The Kelley Blue Book app is designed to give you the most accurate book value on a used vehicle you may be interested in purchasing. It allows you to enter details such as age, mileage, make and model and will generate an appropriate price based on the information given. This app is a must-have tool for used car purchase negotiation. The Kelley Blue Book app is also free.

iWrecked

Although the last thing we want to happen is a collision, the iWrecked app is a must-have for that just-in-case scenario. If you have been involved in an accident the app guides you through the legal steps to ensure you have all the necessary information and allows you to upload photographs to a.pdf file.

In the event the collision was serious enough that your vehicle cannot be driven, the app also provides local phone numbers for tow truck services and taxis.

Repairpal

This app can help save you thousands of dollars over the lifetime of your vehicle. Repairpal allows you to enter your make, year, mileage and details about the maintenance and repair work that has been done on your automobile. With this information, the app generates reminders of upcoming maintenance, and has a database of repair costs for thousands of repair jobs. Using the repair cost comparison tool you can be assured you will not pay more than is necessary for a repair when at a service station.

Repairpal also provides access to its roadside assistance network when you run into trouble on the road. They offer services like towing, emergency fuel delivery and dead battery repair to name a few.

All of these apps are available for both Android and iPhone users and are must-haves for automobile owners, or those looking to purchase automobiles; that they are free adds to their money-saving benefits.
