When you're driving and suddenly break down on the side of the road, you can't count on a good Samaritan to come and help. (Watch a good Samaritan doing just that in this touching video.)

However, you can count on apps to give you a helping hand. There are free and low-cost apps that help you to keep your car on the road and in good shape. Plus, some of these apps help you to keep tabs on your cars' maintenance records.

AutoCare ($1.99 Android; $2.99 iOS): If you own multiple vehicles, it can get tricky managing all of the maintenance schedules. This app will keep you on track by managing your cars' fuel and service records, as well as maintenance schedules, so you'll never miss a tire rotation or oil change again.

AutoZone (Free; iOS, Android): When you need to fix your car, the AutoZone app for iOS and Android devices can help. With it, you can find an AutoZone store near you, and search its inventory. You'll see prices and sales in the store for the products you need. Plus, there are free repair guides, to help you diagnose your car's problem, so you can fix it.
