I do, but I would prefer not to do business with them; their staff is very unprofessional.

There is an AdvanceAuto not too far away, but it cannot hurt to look for a good deal on a reader here first

The thing is, consumer code readers are only good for reading codes. It cannot tell you what they do, check anything, etc. I can go to AutoZone and ask them to check the voltage to most things on the car, straight through their scan tool (GM Tech2)

Then your autozones are too cheap

Tech2s aren't cheap, IIRC they run a couple grand.
