Has anyone tried this? For $269 they claim to work with SSM3 and it includes the software.
V2018.4 VXDiag SUBARU SSM-III SSM3 Diagnostic Tool
I don't want to have to drive to a dealership every time a warning light comes on. I have tried a variety of OBDII tools which can display and reset check engine codes, but only SSM can diagnose airbag codes and hybrid codes. It should allow you to reprogram smart keys too. The legit SSM3 software works with model years 1998-2016, and it requires a Hitachi HDS3000 or the newer Denso DST-i. The Denso box is sold by Nuspire for $7800 and the Hitachi occasionally pops up on eBay for around $2000. Way out of my price range. I believe consumers have the right to fix their own cars, so it's outrageous that Subaru make it so expensive.
