Diagnostic Portal

If you're in the market for a new diagnostic tool, the first thing you need to know is what products are available so you can begin your research. Too many of us will buy on 'impulse' and end up with disappointing results, usually because there is inadequate marketing, on the part of the manufacturer, to let us know the product exists.

So, to help us make informed decisions, we have generated a catalog on every diagnostic tool we can find and filled it with information to get you started.

In addition, we will soon be adding a review section for each listing for you to let everyone know of your 'real world' experience of the tool which will be invaluable to shoppers.


Disclaimer; (1)All listings in the 'Diagnostic Portal' are compiled from existing public sources and do not reflect the opinion of The Automotive Service Business Network, ASBN or ASBN Publications on the products' validity or performance.

(2) All comments posted are solely the personal opinions of the registered users and in no way reflect the opinions of ASBN, The Automotive Service Business Network or ASBN Publications.
