Cars have problems, just like people do. Unlike us, though, your car can tell you exactly what’s wrong — if you have the right tool.

Kobra is a wireless scanner that can interpret more than 3,000 codes for generic and manufacturer-specific problems. Just plug it into your car’s computer (easier than you think), and connect it via Wi-Fi to the included app.

It’ll tell you exactly why your car is throwing that check engine light, so you can save time and money with a DIY fix. At minimum, you’ll be able to walk into the repair shop fully informed. Additionally, you can get real-time data on your car’s performance, making this an invaluable diagnostic tool.
