This one seems like it has a good quantity of valuable features, and is priced at around $133 online.

I dont think it will pull ABS or AIR BAG codes, and probably wont pull codes for OBD1.

You can run by autozone and they will pull your codes for free.

In doing more digging this Actron unit, on my previous post, might be the one. You can upload your codes to a site, and have them analyzed. This gives you the power of the more expensive systems, on a temporary basis. Perfect if you only do it once or twice per year. It cost $4 per vehicle for 48hrs of diagnostic time. Still looking though. . . . .

Automaotive scan tools - anybody got a handle on this?

I have snap-on it is the best out there because once you have the code you have the option to track and or single out components linked to that code. You can adjust things in your cars computer like fuel trim. They have scopes and other diagnostic tools built in them.
Con the price used start at 1k but worth every penny

I have one too, and it's nice. But I also have a small one that I like. I think I only gave about $50 for it but, I know what the codes mean too.

Scan tool

I purchased an Innova scan tool that will also scan ABS & SRS on Amazon. Saved $ verses O'Reilly Auto Parts.
