Works on any vehicle that uses the OBD 2 standard (most vehicles built after 2000, but can work for vehicles as far back as 1996) if in doubt check with your manufacturer first or look for 'OBD2' on written on a big white label in your engine bay
Works on vehicles made by Ford, VW, GM/Vauxhall/Opel, Chrysler, Mercedes, Volkswagen, Audi, Jaguar, Citroen, Peugoet, Skoda, Kia, Mazda, Lexus, Subaru, Renault, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Honda, Hyundai, BMW, Toyota, Seat, Dodge, Jeep, Pontiac and many more vehicle makes, European, US, Far East, etc. Some vehicle ECUs may support more/less features than others
The app needs a Bluetooth OBD2 adapter to work. The adapter is small and plugs into the diagnostics socket on the car which gives your phone access. You can find a list of adapters on: http://torque-bhp.com/wiki/Bluetooth_Adapters (Garmin EcoRoute HD adapters not supported)
If you buy one of the cheap china OBD2 ELM327 bluetooth adapters from ebay / amazon, then make sure you have a good returns policy with the seller
Some of the best reliable OBD2 / OBD adapters are the Scantool.net adapter, the OBDKey, and PLX Devices, OBDLink, Bluetooth, ELM327 and other adapters are supported - search on google for them
More features added every release - there are forums at http://torque-bhp.com/forums/ - if you want something added then let me know and I'll try to add it if it is possible! Vehicle ECUs vary in the amount of sensors supported
*PLEASE NOTE* Any reports of hanging or reboots after quitting the app is due to a bug in HTC devices and Galaxy Tab,this can be triggered by using the Pandora/Vlingo/Other BT apps. Disabling Pandoras new bluetooth settings fixes the problem, but HTC/Samsung need to release a fix.Please contact their support and request a fix,Thanks!

Updating my review. Installing on yet another device and wishing my devices, carrier service and other apps were as dependable as this app has been for over a decade now. It's the OBD II app that sets the standard and which I've compared all others to. It can seem a bit complex for the novice but stay with it, there's a wealth of knowledge to be learned from it. I've never turned down the opportunity to use it. Thank you Ian Hawkins.

Been using this app for years to monitor real time data on a few vehicles. Several months ago it started glitching when vehicle is in motion. Sensor views go crazy and nothing works. When I stop the truck, all is good. Figured it was a communication speed issue. I've now tried 3 different adapters and a brand new tablet, wasted a ton of time reentering custom pids and remaking dashboards... no response from developers either. I've wasted way too much time and money now. They screwed it up

With the right OBDII device, it's great! I've used this app for about 6 years and loved it. My original device died (thanks Arizona heat)and I replaced it with an "Amazon Recommend" one. That was a mistake as I started all sorts of issues getting it connected, reading codes, pulling live data, etc. Once I went back to a quality device everything clicked and has been great. Do yourself a favor and pair this to a quality product.
