ODB2 Scanner

I'm keeping a monthly check on the car & how it performs with my ODB 2 scanner, if any problems appear I can show the dealer.

    It's a good tool to use for day-to-day monitoring (boost pressure, fuel economy, etc..) but when it comes to fault codes you won't get too much use out of it.

    For proper diagnostics you'll still need to take it to your local dealer.  Or you can use something like Fiat ECU Scan (now Multi ECU Scan) which will give you much better readings
