This is one of the most precise and reliable scanners on the market. The price is a little higher than others on the market, but you are getting what you pay for.

You also get a 1-year warranty, so if anything does go wrong, you are covered.

This machine was built for speed. It does not matter if you are diagnosing your own vehicle or a fleet for customers, you will get it done in record time.

This is a scanner for professionals, so there may be some setup involved to get it running as you want it, but when it does, it will miss nothing.
