    Anyone know of a better program than AutoBuddy for tracking vehicle maintenance. Most programs I found are mainly for tracking mileage and not maintenance tracking. Thanks.
    I think therefore I am.... confused!!!

    I use pFuel. I don't use it's maintenance part except to log what I did and when, but I think you can set alarms as to when is the next oil change, etc.

    Hope this helps...

    Or use the built-in Documents To Go spreadsheet app. I have the following column headings:

    Date of Service, Mileage, Work Done, Done By, Notes.

    I use a different worksheet for wifey's car. I have 4 years worth of data that uses only 60 rows and 14K of memory. You don't need anything fancy for keeping maintenance records. This is simple, customizeable, and free.

    I also use an excel spreadsheet with different tabs for each vehicle. Works great for me!

    Autoslate is a good program. I've used it for a few years now.

    I'll throw in another vote for pFuel.

    pFuel.

    I've tried several other freeware and trialware for this purpose and discarded all of them because of instability, incompatibility or just plain old wierd behaviour...

    I use LubeLog. Not that great of a program, but keeps track of what's important.

    Do any of these have a desktop companion?

    I had early version of TealAuto it works fine. I wish it has a "desktop" viewer to run reports. it has a "alert" say if you set 30,000 miles remind you of oil change it'll do that.

    I might give PFuel a try since it's FREE.

    Auto Slate has a desktop application that it syncs up with.

    I like Automobile 4.0 from Linkesoft......allows for multiple vehicles and runs calculations on the fly for MPG. Has a free conduit for exporting to a csv file which you can then deal with in Excel to track other trends.

    I've had a lot of resets with AutoSlate. Just checked and there is a new version available. I'll install it and hope it works better.

    How good is the 5-way support in pFuel?

    Despite not having 5-way support, pFuel is one of a rare breed that did not crash my Treo. It has support for Maintenance schedules and such... also graphing and statistics. Go ahead and try it, it's free.
