Although not a show stopper, the buttons stick if not pressed directly over the center of the buttons. I returned the first one thinking it might just be a bad one, but the second one did the same thing. Still a decent code reader for the money !

I work on my own car and use this tool to diagnose potential problems. It can also be used to remove your check engine light. It does not display data other than the code for that issue, so if your wanting live data or more extensive explanations of the issue you will need a more advanced reader. It does not have a feature to show data via usb to pc so this is something I'd personally like to have, but for the price I can certainly understand why it does not. Once again this is as basic as they come. One feature I did like about this reader is that it runs from the power of the vehicle so no additional power source is needed.

    Comments about Actron Pocket Scan Code Reader:

    My 2009 Honda CRV had a flashing "D" and engine light on. This code reader identified code P0843, which was a transmission fluid pressure sensor problem. It took $35 and 1 hour of time to resolve the problem. This device is very handy.

      Purchased this to replace my outdated Actron code reader, which wouldn't read 2006 and newer OBDII codes. Does the job just fine, as long as you can use your google machine to search for the problems associated with the code it spits out.

          Dont get ripped off buy the dealership. Buy one figure out whats wrong,buy the part, and fix the problem. Or it is better to know what check engine light code your showing before calling a mechanic either way good buy.
