Question about Cars & Trucks
With CarMD, you are not paying for the device, you are paying for the expertise of technicians who see what your device sees and provide you an explanation and recommended course of action to repair any problems, along with estimates on what a repair should cost.
You can buy code readers and scanners starting at under $50, but if you don't understand the meaning of diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) or what you should be seeing with a scanner, it doesn't make too much difference whether you spend $50 or $1000.
I don't have CarMD, and know nothing more about them than what I see in their adverstisements, but it sounds good.
You could go to most auto parts stores, have them check your car for codes, and they will probably recommend you buying something that will 'fix it'. Or, you could have them give you the code(s) - get a print out or write them down. Then research yourself, or ask a knowledgeable friend for help.
