Autel MK808 reviews:
A DIY Car Guy: I love the MK808. It's a responsive touch screen tablet with an Android operating system and wireless internet. You can easily look up information on the spot while working on a vehicle. It also has quick links to your online repair manuals. Fast and intuitive operation saves you a lot of time during repairs.

Glen E Thomas: repaired a faulty brake circuit code with this scanner, seems someone had put in led bulbs and the Kia uses a ground for the brake circuit through the stop light bulbs. Replaced the bulbs with standard bulbs and the Cruise control and traction control are now working perfectly. My older scanner did not pull the brake circuit code that allowed me to find the problem. The Autel MK808 has actually allowed me to fix a problem that has irritated me for over a year.

William Harper: Outstanding tool did a forced Regen on my 2011 2500HD Ltd Silverado like a champ no more dealer Regen service prices. Thank you

Marilou Edwards: Totally great diagnostic tool. Used it for 2 weeks or more, and diagnosed for over 10 vehicles for different requirement. Bluetooth wireless connection greatly reduced the responding time and the signal connected is stable.

Autel DS808 reviews:
Gigi Carabina: I am more than impressed with what this little tool can do for the price. I was able to do variant coding on a W212 Mercedes, Airmatic calibration and it still had a lot of other useful features( it was able to access all of the 46 modules installed on the Merc).

MRJIM: I have used many code scanners as a DIY mechanic, but this one takes the cake. If you are a hard-core DIY mechanic, then you need this. Online updates, with helpful diagnoses, you can take the guesswork out of confusing codes.

Frankie V-Tech: I had was a 2009 Hyundai Sonata 4cyl, complaint was it had a 2-1 rough downshift...found there's a recall that needed to be reprogrammed on these symptoms...guess what...this thing has a Transmission ECU reset feature...and it worked! Unbelievable! I'm very happy with this MS808.
