OBD Code Reader

8200 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Ed_S
I have a CEL and am looking for a recommendation on an OBD code reader. Is it true that some cars have specialized codes that can only be read by certain readers? If so, is a 2003 Outback such a car? What reader would you recommend for occasional use?

Thanks much.

All I can say is buy the best one you can afford. My inspector has/ uses two different scanners; one he uses usually gives him a fit clearing codes and the other finds them every time with no problems. If course the better one is a bigger bulkier unit, that is probably flash update-able.
