SAM is looking for a few good OBD II ports
Or, you could just go see SAM. SAM stands for Smart Auto Management, and it's like a mechanic and an ATM rolled into one. The kiosk systems are going in at assorted chain-service shops and independent facilities. You drive your ailing car in, pay the $15 fee, plug into SAM and get a printout that is written in English even your ten-year-old will understand. Some of us will soldier on with our code readers and mental Rosetta Stones, but for folks looking for a quick answer to the "is this going to be expensive" question, SAM may be your man.
