All the features of the brands that are much more expensive. Came in handy when my ABS system failed. Diagnosed exact problem and was able to replace the exact part that the ODB II reader cited as failure. Saved hours of diagnostics and big dollars in shop costs. Replaced ABS sensor myself in 20 minutes and saved the $350 diagnostic test and labor the shop quoted. A good ODB II reader is a must have to avoid fraudulent or excessive shop/labor fees. Most if not all auto dealers pay their service department commissions and will almost always give you more repairs than are actually needed to fix your problem. I know several friends who have worked at dealerships and they all told me they are encouraged and even required to do repairs that are not needed to generate additional revenue for the dealership. I also know this because after I got the ODB II reader and found out what was wrong with the car, I took it to the dealer with the ABS light on. I was told that the ABS system is very complicated and the ABS problem usually is a result of multiple systems failures in the ABS system. Was quoted $350 for diagnostics and labor and told the parts could run anywhere from a few hundred to over a thousand dollars. The OBD II reader told me the front passenger wheel sensor failed. I paid $50 for the sensor and replaced it and ABS system works fine. This OBD II reader will test all the sensors in your car and also has ABS diagnostics. All ODB II readers are not the same. I have an inexpensive one that I bought before buying this Craftsman. The inexpensive reader did not work very well, the codes were incorrect, and the ABS diagnostics did not find anything wrong. Everyone should have one of these. The money you spend on this OBD II scanner will pay for itself the first time something goes wrong with your car.

This is an easy to use reader. Big enough screen for an old guy like my husband to read. Bought a smaller one but was too small and this one is just right. Would recommend it.
