I just picked up an Autoxray AX4000 and I already love it
Although there is a 50 buck enhanced upgrade fee to enable the scanner to scan for KR and all of the other good stuff

If you only want to scan 96-99 the 4000 is the one to get.
The AX5000 is OBD l&ll compatable.
The AX 6000 is the fully loaded one and the most expensive.

Check Advance for a better than their online price

Here'* their scanner page

Yep but it'* also 330 bucks more also.
If you need it to do OBD l also,go for it. If it'* just for yours,it'* not worth the extra money

It'* a simple upgrade to do,I've already done mine
Register the scanner online first.

Then make sure ya upgrade the software to the most recent version. The software upgrade disc comes with the scanner

After that all ya go to do is call up the tech line and give them your credit card # and they walk ya through the upgrade

The enhanced functions are already in the scanner and it'* 50 bucks to get the codes to unlock them
