Autel MK908P Customer Feedback
The best tool I have ever bought in my entire career. This tool should be $3,000+. They even update the darn thing about every other day for issues they've found on certain cars. This tool is my right hand. The funny thing is I gave the headphones away because they wont work with the tool as it doesn't have a audio port lol. I actually sold them to a college for $25, So that right there was pretty funny. But back to the tool. Beast a$$ tool. If you are a mechanic and and have $800 or $5000, Buy this Autel DS808 or the other fancier Autel Maxidas. But this dang thing is an animal. Like a Mane-less Lion that roars lightning bolts. Maybe that was far-fetched. I would give this Toool a 20/10 because I feel like for the money I paid here on amazon for it I got a steal. Don't buy those junk Launch scan tools. This one blows them outta the water. It's like comparing a M4 Military issue Assault Rifle to a Nerf Gun.
This is a powerful tool! responsive and can do many things. It helped bleed my brakes, which I couldn’t have done without this tool. I’m only deducting one star because the renewal of the subscription is so expensive that most DIY should just paid a professional shop to do the scanning for them. Otherwise if you have multiple cars and you work a lot or own a small shop this is a good tool to have. If they did a month to month subscription so instead of 300 bucks for a year which is ridiculous (almost the cost of this device), just charge 40 to 50 buck for one month of update and if the consumer wants to pay for a full year, then charge them the 300 bucks. Until then this will always just be a 3-4 star device.
I highly recommend for DIYers who can't afford very expensive scan tools. Love it, and easy to navigate on how to use it,…also has bi-directional function…I found out that, it's automatically updating software when I'm connected to wifi. I haven't tried other funtion yet such as srs & abs, but I'm confident it will perform well when I get to that point. So far I have already tried it to Honda, Toyota & mitsubishi, i just don't know yet for other cars. And for the price difference from other expensive models with same function?, this will do for me. It's only differ from the screen size,…bigger on expensive models.
I tested it on a lot of vehicles of my family and neighbors, such as 2008 Ford F-150, 2011 Honda Civic, 2013 Honda Accord, 2015 Nissan Altima, and etc. Not only I but my wife uses it on a daily basis for reading DTCs, turning off SEL, and testing the vehicle emissions for a state program.
Well, I'd shout out to this awesome multifunctional code reader, turning off the check engine light, testing the vehicle voltage, current and resistance are all OK for this tool. It’s truly a kind of DIY diagnostic tool that suitable for all kinds of users.
This one does what it should simple and easy but some things are under Service and not Diagnostic! But a very nice scanner for the price I would buy another one. Recommend this for any shop it has it all and will do most everything you need! One of the best MaxiPRO's I have used! Love all of it's features which come in handy when you work in the automotive field daily and are using it!
