Note (automend pro review):
It is very important that you understand the need to use this tool for the sole purpose for which it was created. The automend pro is meant to be used on only the OCD II port of your car. Do not attempt to put it into any other form of sockets.
This tool is meant to help you detect and diagnose problems so that your mechanic can fix with accuracy the issue that your car has. Remember to always remove your automend tool once your vehicle will not be in use for a long time
Who needs this diagnostic tool? (automend pro review)
You may erroneously be of the opinion that this product is for exclusively for those who know nothing about cars or persons who may not be mechanics. This is really a wrong assumption.
This tool in my own opinion is really for everyone who wants to take appropriate care of their vehicle and to checkmate the rip off by some mechanics.
If your knowledge about cars is quite poor, this is a great device to have as it helps you detect the problem of your car in the house, office or even in the road.
Some mechanics can equally employ it in their work since it makes detecting issues simpler, easier and very cost effective. It helps improve work and gives better results.
What is so special about automend pro?
Is automend the only diagnostic tool in the world? No! So what makes it really special? what makes it unique and why has it been trending lately.
The answer to all these are quite simple. Reviews so far have shown that it is the most accurate diagnostic car tool. Other tools may do similar thing but only a few come close to giving accurate results.
Also, the few devices that are really accurate and good at what they do cost thousands of dollars. Despite this price tag, some of them may take time to connect, some may fail to scan while some are not so durable.
The fact that automend can work with your smartphone also gives it an edge over other diagnostic tools. We all agree that having a knowledge of what is wrong with your car before visiting a mechanic can save you hundreds and thousands of dollars since all mechanics cannot be trusted. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying that there are no trust worthy mechanics out there. No! of course, there are so many of them. However, there are still some bad eggs who would want to take full advantage of unexperienced drivers and rip them off of their hard earned money.

I have to make this known that the automend diagnostic tool has powerful functions and worked well in my 2013 toyota camry. I can now check the problem of my car without having to open my hood and stare aimlessly to detect a problem or fault. – David C
I’m very pleased with this device. So far, its been so good. It has been doing its job very well and honestly, has exceeded my expectations particularly when I compare it with the price it was bought for. The real time data option is good. I was able to detect a leak with it. This product tells you what is wrong with your vehicle and even stores data for a particular car so you don’t get to mix them up with the findings from another ride. Noel F
Best bang for your buck. I’ve used it countless times for work. It is able to read codes, check coolant temperature, fuel economy and even mileage (that’s if you want to buy a used car but is skeptical that the mileage may have been shortchanged). It is a great asset. – Charles A
I was surprised when automend detected a problem with my car even when I didnt feel there was any. At first, I thought my device has become faulty but on getting to the mechanic shop, it was confirmed that my ride really had a problem. If I had ignored this, it could’ve turned out to be an over $2000 problem had it prolonged further. This device truly diagnoses. Mish O
