I am looking for advice on which scan tool to buy. would like to spend around $200.00. I currently own an o5 tacoma, o5 buick and a 2000 outback. They all have dash lites on, engine and abs.

What are you wanting to do? Read and clear trouble codes, look at data stream information, and/or do some bi directional controlling?

$200 isn't going to get you much more than an OBD2 code reader.





Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.

I would like to read and clear the trouble codes and have a reasonably good idea as to what parts need to be changed out.
Thanks for taking the time to reply.

There is no magic tool that tells you what parts need to be replaced.

But Autozone sells a scan tool by Actron .Its called Code Connect. It will read codes,and will give you access to top reported fixes for the codes.

I have looked over the models available through Amazon and that Actron unit seemed to be a good choice.
Thank you for your time.
