We've updated RepairPal!  Our goal is to be your one-stop website for comprehensive auto repair and service information. In our effort to provide accurate repair estimates and lists of common problems for as many cars and drivers as possible, we've just added 6 new models and updated 40+ existing models, including the Honda Accord, Civic, Toyota Camry, Ford F150, Mustang and the Chevrolet Cobalt and Chevrolet Malibu.

We are currently processing new data, so we will be adding many more models in the coming weeks, including the Hybrid Versions of the Ford Fusion, Toyota Camry and Highlander, Honda Accord and Civic and the Chevrolet Tahoe!

Since you never know when you are going to need help with your car, we wanted to make RepairPal available in all places. Today we released a free iPhone App called "RepairPal: Auto Repair Expert". We are really excited to make this available to everyone and we think you will like it too.

Our iPhone App allows you to get the same estimates as RepairPal.com from your iPhone. You can also search for a repair shop in your area using the iPhone's GPS, and you can view ratings and reviews to find the right shop on the go. If you happen to break down, you can search for a tow truck or roadside help in the RepairPal directory, or call your manufacturer's helpline.

Last night, RepairPal was honored to be a runner-up for the Silicon Valley Business Journal's Internet Emerging Technology Award.  For such a young company and product--we've only been up and running since June--it was a compliment to be considered among a roster of well-established, innovative firms crossing a bevy of technology categories.
