Meineke Unveils a Plug-In Connected Car Service for $129.99

Posted on November 30, 2016

Meineke Car Care Centers LLC, a division of Driven Brands Inc., is promising consumers peace of mind and freedom from vehicle maintenance concerns with a new plug-in technology, the Meineke Revvy.

The vehicle connectivity system connects to a vehicle's onboard diagnostic systems, and creates a fully connected car. It works no matter who is driving, and also offers onboard Wi-Fi.

“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,” says Danny Rivera, president of 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 a vehicle, whether it's 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. It also monitors fuel mileage and tracks vehicle performance and driving style.

Using the Meineke Revvy, drivers can access their dashboard and download a daily report, including:

  • miles driven and location of vehicle;
  • average and top speeds;
  • hard breaks and acceleration;
  • fuel used and efficiency;
  • engine load;
  • travel routes and travel time;
  • Wi-Fi hotspot data usage;
  • where the vehicle was last parked; and
  • 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 neighborhood Meineke to arrange an appointment.

The Meineke Revvy is available to preorder online at www.Meineke.com/Revvy and will be shipped and available in-center in mid-December. Each Revvy device comes with a complimentary synthetic blend oil change. Voucher for the oil change will be provided with shipment.
