    How do you keep track of scheduled maintenance for your cars? I've been looking around for good solutions (specifically, software/websites) to track maintenance for my 2005 Acura RSX-S, and I found several apps out there (some free), but they all seemed kinda half-baked.

    Since I'm a software engineer, it occurred to me that I could probably put together a nice web-based car maintenance reminder service that would put the others to shame. I'm envisioning a site where you add your vehicle, set up some recurring maintenance tasks (or just accept the defaults like oil change every 3K miles), and then get email/SMS reminders when maintenance is due. Maybe also a feature for tracking gas mileage.

    If I were to build something like this, who here would be interested? Would you be willing to pay a small monthly subscription to use the service (say, $5-10/month)? Are there any "killer" features you can think of that would definitely make it worth your time/money?

    Thanks for any feedback. I *think* something like could be a success, but before I invest any time, I wanted to get some honest opinions from real car enthusiasts like you.

    Almost every kind of software on the scale of a smartphone app has already been done. There is an app called Car Minder Plus in the iPhone app store.
