Repair Report

Diagnostic reports are generated as a result of ‘Update Vehicle Odometer and OBD’ API to pass along vehicle OBD2 information. If the user has a Check Engine Light or pending issues, a diagnostic report is generated. This report contains all the information pertaining to that code, including but not limited to, the laymen meaning and severity of the code, and the most-likely repair.
