Meineke Car Care Centers has announced a new innovation in vehicle maintenance – the Meineke Revvy, a vehicle connectivity system that the company says puts auto maintenance on auto pilot and delivers freedom and peace-of-mind for America’s drivers.
The Meineke Revvy connects to vehicle onboard diagnostic systems, creating a fully connected car that delivers freedom from worries about vehicle maintenance, peace-of-mind and deeper insight into vehicle performance no matter who is driving, according to the company. It also features onboard WiFi that turns the car into an entertainment center.
“The Meineke Revvy will improve the entire driving experience – changing how vehicles are driven, maintained and repaired with the industry’s first onboard system that connects cars and drivers,” said Danny Rivera, president, Meineke Car Care Centers. “Not only does the Meineke Revvy learn and monitor you and your car, it also links you to a trusted service partner so you are always protected on the road.”
Built on the Vinli platform, with 4G LTE service powered by T-Mobile, the Meineke Revvy delivers a high-tech approach to taking care of the family car or a business vehicle. The device plugs into the vehicle’s OBD-II port and is synced with the car’s computer. Every time the vehicle is turned on, the Meineke Revvy scans all of the diagnostic codes to ensure all are in working order, monitors fuel mileage and tracks vehicle performance and driving style.
Using the Meineke Revvy, drivers can access their dashboard and download a daily Driver Score and performance report, which includes:
- Miles driven and location of vehicle
- Average and top speeds
- Hard breaks/acceleration
- Fuel used and efficiency (MPG)
- Engine load
- Travel routes and travel time
- WiFi hotspot data usage
- Where the vehicle was last parked
- Vehicle diagnostics and check engine codes
If a check engine code returns an error, the Meineke Revvy notifies the driver that maintenance or repairs are needed. It also will contact the driver’s local Meineke to arrange an appointment. All the driver has to do is drop off their vehicle at their neighborhood Meineke for service.
Additional benefits of the Meineke Revvy include:
- Onboard WiFi, powered by T-Mobile’s 4G LTE service
- A large app ecosystem for the car with Vinli
- Improved maintenance and reduced repair costs
The Meineke Revvy is available to preorder online at Meineke.com/Revvy and will be shipped and available in-center in mid-December. Each Revvy device comes with a complementary synthetic blend oil change. Voucher will be provided with shipment.
