About Us

YOUCANIC is a global leader in automotive repair and diagnostic. We help vehicle owners save money on auto repair by empowering them with repair knowledge and tools that make vehicle maintenance easy.

We are committed to solving automotive problems in a cost-effect, efficient, and convenient way.  

Our repair guides give vehicle owners the knowledge and confidence to maintain vehicles themselves while saving lots of money. 


Car problems and repairs no longer need to be difficult, frustrating, and expensive.

We have published over 1,000 free repair guides and reach over 500,000 vehicle owners every month. 



We like fast cars, but helping you is our fuel. Unless we help you, we won't be able to get very far. 




We tear down vehicles to make videos and show you how to put them back together. 

Mercedes Tear Down

We give you the tools to diagnose your vehicle yourself too. We are constantly working on developing some of the most advanced diagnostic tools. 




If it's too cold outside and you decide to take the vehicle to the repair shop, the knowledge that you gain from YOUCANIC gives you confidence when talking to the mechanic.
