About OBDStation

At OBDstation, we strive to make diagnosing and repairing automotive issues more convenient, affordable, and stress-free. We know how worrisome car troubles can be, and seek to arm our readers with the knowledge they need to make well-informed decisions when something goes wrong. 

Our core focus is around diagnostic scan tools – what they are, how to choose the right one, their various use cases, and what specific codes mean. We also cover topic areas like automotive troubleshooting, DIY maintenance, and basic vehicle mechanics.

Backed by decades of automotive experience, our mission is to deliver unbiased, detailed reviews, recommendations, and information to help improve your knowledge of auto mechanics. We take pride in our work and are thrilled to have this platform to share our expertise. 


Above all else, this site is for our readers. In every decision we make and every article we publish, we put your interests first.

Transparent & Reliable

We provide honest assessments of the products we review – and give our best advice to help make your life easier.


We will always highlight savings where we can. At the end of the day, we want to help you make smart financial decisions as well.

I grew a love of cars as a teenager by helping my dad fix his. As a father of 3, I proudly shared what he taught me to my own children. After two decades in the auto industry, I’m still sharing with everyone I can through OBDstation.
