One of my friends recommended this product to me, he is an auto enthusiast and very good at mechanical maintenance and he has a good knowledge of car scanners.So far this works great, i personally like the DTCs lookup function very much which i can easily know the definition of codes and find the cause of trouble.

The plug-and-play diagnostic tool is very convenient to use, works well on my 2014 Ford Fusion, and looks cool hahaha… Last week I replaced the motor oil with the help of the gadget, its so practical and I definitely like it.

I got my oil service light on and I didn’t want to go to the garage as my car just changed the oil in a week, I searched and found that it was not a serious problem, my friend at the garage told me that I could solve the problem with this tool, it arrived soon and put out the light, good.

Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?

Jane's Review

Yes! I highly recommend this code reader/scan tool based on its brand popularity and manufacturer ratings. Let's go over the reasons why buying this code reader/scan tool now is a good idea, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.

1. LAUNCH is a known code reader/scan tool brand

LAUNCH doesn't attract too many people on Amazon among other code reader/scan tool brands. But I found some YouTube videos that talk about this product, which means this is a widely known product/brand. I have attached the videos above and links in the additional research section down below, so don't forget to watch and read those!

One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.

2. Manufacturer has very positive reviews on all their products!

The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing or there is some defect in the product? With anything you buy online, there is a small chance of this happening. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). Still, you want to make sure that the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. As you see in my manufacturer report below, Launch (LAUNCH) has very positive reviews for their products. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, this is likely a safe bet.

3. The price might go up, so buy now if you need this!

image/svg+xml Highest Price Lowest Price $268.53 $245.00

Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in four parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and a price prediction I made, just in case you want to wait.

First off, let's talk about its recent price change. This product became unavailable to purchase, so it's hard to tell. However, the last price change observed between March 18, 2018 and September 18, 2019 was a 7.84% price increase. Since this product is currently unavailable, you might want to check out the list of similar products I gathered in the similar products section!

Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this code reader/scan tool was $268.53, and the lowest price point was $245.00. The current price is greater than it has ever been. If the best price is what you're looking for, this could be potentially be a bad time to purchase.

What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. This product is currently unavailable so I can't really endorse its availability, sadly. If you plan to repeatly purchase this item, I would suggest looking for a similar product or a seller who has this product with better availability! In addition, the price tends to stay more or less the same. Not a lot of price movement is expected, but the price could still move in either direction by a smidge.

Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? I know it's currently unavailable, but if this becomes available a week later, based on past price points, I expect the price to be $277.30 a week from now. It might be best to purchase as soon as possible before the price becomes too high.

4. There are other options you might want to check out

image/svg+xml LAUNCH Other similar brands: udiag Bafx Products Launch KOBRA Products

I found 7 brands that have similar products like this one: udiag, Bafx Products, Launch, KOBRA Products, FOXWELL, Foseal, and Veepeak. 'If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, you might want to look at a similar product from FOXWELL. If you're looking for a code reader/scan tool with best reviews, a product from Launch gets the best score on the internet. If your primary concern is whether the product is popular and well known, a similar product from Foseal I linked below is a better option. I linked all the similar products in the similar products section so please check them out! Or you can check other similar products on Amazon, too.

5. This code reader/scan tool has debatable reviews on the internet

Some people have a great experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item and have to go through the whole process of returning them. Since people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, don't read too much into one good or bad review. Reading multiple reviews with different ratings can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.

This code reader/scan tool has debatablereviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this code reader/scan tool more a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product above in the good/ok/bad table, so don't forget to read those since they paint the whole picture! And of course, if you want to read more detailed reviews, many of them are on Amazon!See More Reviews on AmazonSee More Reviews on Amazon
