sounds good to me. cause i was just thinking last nite that it might cause lots of fights with repair shops like if the thing says a transmission replacement is $750 and the shop charges $2000 or whatever oddball price, people could start getting heated.

That'* made for people that really have no clue what they are doing. Plug it in, read the screen, complain to the shop.

Fab... save your money.

I have two tuner/scan tools and you can hit up the parts store for any quick code reading that occurs. Unless you heavily mod your car (which Justin and I aren't going to allow yet) you won't need anything more than a quick scan or trip to my place.

Once you get a better handle on the car, what your typical desires/needs for info and codes etc are, then consider spending the money.
