All in all, this is a serviceable scanner to use if your car is rather old and you do not want to spend much money on it. A more advanced or even a wired scanner, however, will likely satisfy you more. See if you can't find a newer Actron wires scanner that is compatible with newer cars. It may also be a more reliable tool, overall as well.
