In cases where there are many differences in how each OEM provides the same data, Smartcar will provide you with a make-specific endpoint before making it widely available to all supported makes. This allows our customers to start taking advantage of these endpoints and share feedback with Smartcar earlier.

These endpoints will maintain consistent behavior and will not “break” with future releases. In time, a make-specific endpoint might be standardized across various makes, eliminating the need to indicate the make in the URL. You won’t need to modify your code but you might benefit from a newly standardized version.

When using make specific endpoints, please ensure to specifiy the make in lower case format. Using upper case letters will result in a PERMISSION error.
