I heard that Alfa Romeo will be issuing NFTs for service and maintenance records on one of their newer models, and they will be the first car maker to do so. I think getting your vehicle history through an NFT or blockchain technology is a fantastic idea. You’d get that immutable information that people can't mess around with. People used to turn their odometer back before selling their car, so this will save a lot of people from scams like that going forward.

I would love to have service records on the blockchain, because I'm terrible with keeping those. I know that I do all of my service records, but I don't always document them. I'm sure I also don't go to the same provider every time, so it would be nice to have everything together. And from a consumer standpoint, I'd like to know the history of my car.

On the one hand, I would like to have service records on the blockchain, but I can't think of the last time I bought a used vehicle and I rarely sell them. It's interesting if I put on my general consumer hat and it would be beneficial. But the benefit would be negligible for me, either as a buyer or a seller.

Some of the value might also come from being able to show the dealership or service provider the service history. They do that now with their own systems, but having it on blockchain technology could spare them from some corruption in terms of the integrity of the data.

Why not? It would be just as it is now, stored somewhere... Just safer!

Yes, I would be open to keeping the records of my car on the blockchain, but not sure if it would change anything for me other than just the change in the storage location.

Yes, I would like that. Not only for service records, but for everything around the car, from its fabrication (including part number and provenance) to its sales, registrations, taxes, accidents, insurance, to addons. It would inspire confidence to the new owner when reselling the car, would be a better proof than what we get today online or on paper, and may even be used to mark stolen cars so they or their parts cannot be resold on the open market and could be traced later if mounted on another vehicle.
