My Top 5 Favorite Automotive Tools:

Snap-on Solus Pro & Vantage Pro — For an independent shop servicing all makes and models, there isn’t anything better.

Power Probe 3 — Very quick and ­convenient.

Snap-on MG325 3/8” Impact —  Small but powerful. I rarely use my 1/2” impact anymore.

Snap-on FAR2505 3/8” Air Ratchet — Lightweight and gets into tight places.

GearWrenches — I do not know how techs worked on Subarus before them.
