Car maintenance tools are a bit like the iPhone’s camera app, only for cars.
You can’t just ask for directions to the garage, and even if you do, you’re likely to run into a bunch of drivers who’ll only give you directions if you ask for specific things.
You’ll need a little more skill to find the tools and find the parts that you need, and then you’ll have to figure out how to use them.
The tools can be surprisingly hard to come by, and it’s one of the reasons why the car maintenance industry needs to be so robust.
There’s just no other market for this kind of stuff.
The good news is that it’s becoming increasingly common to have a car that has a car maintenance suite installed, and this could eventually bring a lot of new opportunities for car maintenance professionals.
