Introducing Vehicle Genius: A cost-saving personal assistant at your fingertips

December 15, 2022

Vehicle Genius is expanding subscription offers for DIMO users to provide on-demand answers to all vehicle-related questions, and up to 2x $DIMO rewards on marketplace spend.

(Limited to 50 Subscribers)

Owning a vehicle can be complicated, time consuming, and expensive. Interest, depreciation, routine maintenance, unexpected repairs, and staying on top of constantly changing market conditions can take the fun out of owning a car ….unless you have a Vehicle Genius on your side.

Vehicle Genius is an exclusive membership service for DIMO users that provides access to auto industry experts, discounts, and solutions when you need it most. Powered by DIMO data, Vehicle Genius puts your vehicle’s data to work saving you money.

Have you ever worried you were paying too much for a vehicle repair? Or left a dealership knowing you spent too much? Had a check engine light you were afraid to get fixed?

You need a Vehicle Genius subscription.

Some use cases we’re already helping users with:

  • Locating reputable mechanics and verifying that you are receiving fair quotes for repairs

  • Monitoring the market and making ongoing recommendations on your biggest vehicle-related costs: insurance, loan/lease, and fuel usage

  • Tracking routine maintenance and keeping your digital glovebox updated so you can save big $$ when you need to sell your car.

  • Guiding you through any vehicle transaction, including purchases, leases, and refinances

  • Identifying the right fixes for check engine lights without expensive diagnostic fees from the dealership

  • Checking for tax credits and savings that can save you thousands if you are thinking of upgrading to a new EV or hybrid

All of this is just a text message (or email) away. For $20/month, you will be assigned a personal Vehicle Genius that will be available to answer any and all of your vehicle-related questions, helping you maximize your time and vehicle spend.

That’s not all….

As one of the first DIMO ecosystem partners, Vehicle Genius is working on an improvement proposal that will allow Vehicle Genius subscribers to be eligible for up to a 2X DIMO token boost of their marketplace connection tokens every month they subscribe!

How it will work

Step 1: You subscribe to Vehicle Genius

Step 2: Vehicle Genius confirms your DIMO connection and informs DIMO of your boost eligibility

Step 3: Receive up to a 2X boost of your DIMO marketplace rewards every month you are subscribed to Vehicle Genius

About Vehicle Genius

Vehicle Genius is a project born out of a DIMO user’s desire to make owning a vehicle easier and less expensive by utilizing DIMO-data. Founder Colin Knudsen has spent the last 10 years buying and selling cars, operating fleets, giving advice to friends and family, and comes from a family of car people.

After hearing about DIMO & joining the discord, he got the idea to build a better vehicle ownership experience on the platform — one where buying, selling, and maintaining your vehicle was automated.

While helping DIMO community members with vehicle transactions, Vehicle Genius was able to save users an average of $3,000 by guiding them through vehicle transactions recommended through DIMO-data analysis. They’ve shipped cars, recommended maintenance, price-checked insurance, and made recommendations on dozens of vehicle transactions.

Digital Infrastructure Inc, wants to support more businesses on the DIMO platform - specifically we’re interested in

  • Designing Open-Source Insurance products using past and real-time telematics data

  • Data-Driven Vehicle Maintenance

  • Uniswap for Cars — building the most efficient used car marketplace

  • Peer-to-peer car sharing built on DIMO

  • More efficient vehicle and fleet loans

  • NOTE: The DIMO token boost will be introduced as a formal DIMO Improvement Proposal and must be voted into effect. Users who subscribe to Vehicle Genius PRIOR to the proposal vote will retroactively have their tokens boosted.
