BAT Auto Resource Center

In this series of automotive product reviews, the BAT AUTO staff will take a look at tools and/or products and events that we think most of you who visit our forum will find useful. There's quite a diversity of people who visit our forums. From the housewife who needs general guidance before taking her car to the shop, to the serious do-it yourselfer (DIY) who enjoys doing his/her own work, to the professional technician who is always looking to help out and at the same time learn from others experiences. We're glad so many different people come to us for automotive information and we are ALWAYS looking at ways to improve/expand our service.

We have noticed that many DIYs and even some professional technicians either do not know certain tools exist or are just plain confused about what they do or how they work. That's not surprising since things are changing so fast in the automotive repair industry that its sometimes difficult just to keep up. You can also spend quite a bit of money on a tool (sometimes needlessly) and still not end up with something that makes sense for you. Hopefully, we can help bridge the gap. The tool reviews will give you an un-biased look at some important products. Even if you're one of our visitors who isn't particularly interested in doing your own work, you should still find it interesting reading. Let's face it, you wouldn't be a visitor to the forums if you didn't want to know more about auto repair. So, enjoy! and feel free to give us some and let us know how we're doing.
