Re: code reader
Like 2 years ago when the budget was tighter than it currently is I needed something to pull codes and clear codes... I went to harbor freight and picked their top of the line unit up for like 120 (on sale for 100 but I sprung for the additional 20 dollar warranty). Honestly I was looking in a cornwell tool flyer last month and saw the SAME thing for like 200 bucks, different color, same shape, same functions, buttons, just a different color and a cornwell sticker on it. I rarely use it but its nice to have when I need to look at something not chrysler, to at the very least pull/clear the code. You can see live data on mine which is nice as compaired to the ones that just show a Pcode and thats it.

Great deal, and it has yet to let me down. If I was spending more time on other genders of vehicles I would be much less satisfied but it serves me well.

Re: code reader
Might as well buy a tuner that can read codes. My opinion.
