Yes, it's still worth buying in good condition. I don't believe Snap-On still supports it however, meaning you likely won't be able to get any software updates or customer support.

I'm a diy weekend mechanic, I don't do it for a living. only for friends and family. looking also into the modis edge. but this scan tools are outrageously expensive. what's your recommendation?

Work in your budget is the best advice I have.
If the Modis is working for you I'd stick with it. It's got 4 channels and the Vantage has 2. You'll essentially be replacing one tool for another with similar but less capability, although maybe a bit more year friendly.

I'd at least be looking for something with a touch screen if you are ready to move up from the Modis. You won't know how you ever got on without it :)

I don't know what your budget is and it's really not my business but for comparison sake I just got a gently used Verus Edge with current software for $1800 and saw 2 that went on eBay for $1000

Thanks Noah. The budget for a used unit out the door is $2500 and I don’t even do it for a living. Lol. That’s my budget. Where did you get yours?

We got a new snap on rep about a year ago and I'm the only one who hasn't bought anything from him, so he's been pretty eager to sell me something. He started at $2400, but I beat him up pretty good and when it was still on the truck 3 weeks later we hammered out the final deal.

They're plentiful at pawn shops, but they don't know anything about them, so you really have to know what you're looking at.
