  • Not worth it

    By A F*cking Dragon
    I spent $20 on the Carista adapter hoping to make some coding tweaks on my GTI. I used the month long free trial of the “pro” features to mess around with my windows and lights and other trivial little things. The features are pretty limited and there’s no long coding support. After that I let the trial end then canceled my subscription, expecting that I’d still be able to use the more basic features like resetting service notices and checking fault codes. NOPE! Every feature on the app is now behind a paywall making the adapter completely useless. Of course I have the option to pay $40 for a years’ worth of app usage or $10 for a week, but come on! I have to pay half of or double what the adapter cost just to reset my oil change reminder? That doesn’t add up. OBD tools are plenty cheap now and trying to make people pay extra fees to use the basic features of this one is foolish. Sure, they could keep the customizing features behind their paywall but don’t make the tool completely worthless if someone doesn’t want to pay more for something they just bought. Devs, if you insist on getting people to cough up more for your product, why not allow people to buy pro access for a specific vehicle for life? An extra $5 means I get to tweak my car as long as I have it? I guess that’s reasonable. Food for thought.
  • Ok before reading the terms of use

    The application seems okay, but after reading their terms of use, I deleted it as quickly as I could. Quoting a section (capitalisation in the original text), read part vi: “TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WE MAKE NO WARRANTY THAT (i) CARISTA WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, (ii) DELIVERY OF ANY PORTION OF CARISTA WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE, (iii) THE FAULT CODES, AS WELL AS THE SHORT DESCRIPTIONS APPEARING NEXT TO THEM, THAT MAY BE OBTAINED FROM THE USE OF CARISTA WILL BE ACCURATE OR RELIABLE, (iv) ANY ERRORS IN THE SOFTWARE WILL BE CORRECTED, (vi) ANY PORTION OF CARISTA OR ANY OTHER APPLICATION PROVIDED BY US WILL BE OF SATISFACTORY QUALITY, FAULT OR VIRUS FREE OR UNINTERRUPTED OR SATISFY ANY CONDITIONS OF QUALITY AND FITNESS FOR PURPOSE. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU FROM US OR THROUGH OR FROM CARISTA SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THESE TERMS.

  • The best out there

    I’ve used a lot of these products and apps and this one is hands down my favorite
  • Way too expensive

    By JJMick6
    Product does what it says it does but there’s no reason it’s $40 a year! I bought the device for $30 and one year pro and made the adjustments I needed to in my car. That’s $70 plus another $40 for year two. This product is not worth $110+ beware of autorenewing subscriptions!
  • Amazing

    Got questions ... when you gonna be able to update so we can customize Nissan Rogues ? I hope you do :)
  • It’s ok, but doesn’t worth its price!

    By Will_074
    40 bucks for this is unreal, the app it self is okay. But for the price we should have more options instead windows/lights and door to be reprogrammed. My Audi A3 could be reprogrammed on how I want to lock and unlock, windows, lights (which was cool) but it doesn’t justifies the price! It does reads hidden codes (which is cool) but again 40 bucks nahhh I’d say for 9,99 it’s okay, and they do have this price but for a week lol (see they think that this thing worth like gold). Nice try, I took advantage of the free week that they gave me and could do everything I wanted during this time. Even after finished I said ... okay I’ll buy it cause it was cool, then 40 bucks lol (nope) 9,99 per year and I’ll be here buying and also giving the 5 stars.
  • Used to work great.

  • 2015 Audi A3 Inspection Reset

    5
    By Akpark
    This product was fantastic for what I needed it for. I changed my own oil and replaced my spark plugs but couldn’t clear the “inspection due” notification. Paying $9.99 to clear the message as opposed to paying $400 to service the car at the dealership is a no-brainer. Saved me a ton.
  • Disappointing

    1
    By IT Industry CEO
    I purchased the OBD2 adaptor and used it once. It reported that all the running lights of my car were faulty, when they were all working correctly. It also failed to reset the engine warning light, produced an error internal to the app and requested that I send a narrative error report to Carista. I am disappointed that an app this costly and its associated device do not work out of the box. I will be returning the device for a full refund.
  • Doesn’t Function as Advertised

    By XtoEvolution
    Don’t waste your money on this garbage. I’ve tried applying many of the modifications listed for the Audi S3 and only a few of them work. I’d highly recommend OBDEleven over this. At least the functions listed for that app actually work and you don’t have to pay an absurd 39.99 for a years worth of garbage.
