Great little product for the price (On Sale!!! - $40.00). Saved me a lot of time and $$$ before "repair" work. Easy to use ... very thorough instruction manual. Used it on a 2006 GMC Envoy and found that the check engine light was only highlighting odometer based scheduled maintenance. What the Dealer would have told me was wrong is anybody's guess!

Got this because my engine light was going on and off.Went to partsource to get my code read and find what was the problem. Turned out to be a speed senor...but didn't want to keep going back even getting it done for free.I wanted my own so I found out this was a very cheap and the reviews were great and the price also.Just a warning some people said it does not work for all cars but it works for my mazda3 2006 2.0.....

This was a great find. Engine light came on, so I picked this one up on sale. Read the instructions, and found out what was wrong. It connected properly, did what it said it was supposed to do. Now will save the 80 dollars every time the engine light comes on. Thank you Princess Auto for selling this great product.

Great scanner for a fantastic price. I have used it on my own vehicles as well as friends and it always works. I would recommend it. It paid for it's self the first time I used it. Best part was I bought it on sale!

I picked up this reader on sale a few years ago and it works great, no code book to use it tells you the issue right on screen. Has saved me hundreds in diagnostic bills. A lot of check engine issues are simple things to repair. Highly recommended.

Purchased about 3 years ago as had purchased a 1996 classic car that was always emitting CEL warnings. The inexpensive OBD code reader saved me many $$$ and was able to order needed parts online to fix it. I now have another vehicle and purchased another MS300 to replace the one I gave with the sale of the 1996. Not necessary to buy the expensive reader...

Quick and easy to use at a reasonable price. It won't read more advanced codes like ABS problems but for basic check engine light problems it works like a charm. Sure beats paying the shop $80 every time the check engine light comes on.

I've had this item for a few years now and it's the cats meow. All though I paid a bit more than the advertised price now but well worth the cost. No more going to the garage to get that annoying check engine light off. Also eliminates the little hide a tape stuck to your dash. So to all who are pondering this great piece of equipment I say go for it you won't be disappointed.

Before I purchased this reader, I always had to borrow my uncles to find out what my car was complaining about. When I saw this one for a steal ($24 on sale), I figured it'd be worth a try. When I received it, plugged it into my Volvo and it hooked right up and gave me the codes. Easy to use, read and erase codes. Should have purchased a few of them and given them out as gifts.

Great scan tool. Reads OBDII codes, easy to use. The shops will charge you $50-90 just to hook up their OBDII scanner, so even if you're just going to use it more than once then it is worth it. Instead of taking my car to the shop I found out the check engine light meant 'multiple cylinder misfire', so I changed the wires and plugs. Fixed and saved me hours in the shop at $90/hr!
