There are some cheaper scanners out there but do your research! I have used Cornwell's scanner and didn't like the way it worked. IMO it was very awkward and confusing to use. I have used Snap-On's scanner and is better for the money. I've been looking at the Snap-On scanner and still are probably the best option... for the price. I love dealer scanners because they work AWESOME... but mainly for one make. They do work on other vehicles because OBDII was to standardize all the different makes, but you don't get very much information. And they cost an arm and a leg. GM's Tech 2 scanner is $2500! But again, for the aftermarket scanners (Cornwell, Snap-On... Etc.) depending on what you're working on you need different cards for the scanner so I will work for the different makes of vehicles. They are out there, just do some really good research!
