Ferret Instruments Introduces New SmarTest™ Guided Diagnostics
Leading Diagnostic Brand Adds “Diagnostic Head Tools” to “Diagnostic Hand Tools”

Las Vegas, NV -- Ferret Instruments unveiled a first-of-a-kind series of OEM-specific SmarTest™ Guided Diagnostics for Ford and GM cars and light trucks. The PC-based diagnostic program takes a technician through a step-by-step series of problem-specific diagnostics with an expert technician to identify and solve common and uncommon driveability issues.

“Our new SmarTest Guided Diagnostics are great for any experienced or novice technician,” said Don Russell, Vice President of Marketing for GXT, Inc., owner of the Ferret Instruments brand. “Each PC-based program takes your results from one test and leads you to the next step until the problem is solved. It compliments our diagnostic equipment line completely -- even showing you which Ferret tool to use.”

“SmarTest streamlines troubleshooting -- turning those profit-robbing, time-wasting jobs into profit-makers.” said Russell. “The payback is immediate. It's like having an expert Ford and GM tech looking over your shoulder.”

Using video, audio and on-screen text the SmarTest program shows and tells what's happening at every step in the process, acting as both a reference and training tool. Each OEM-specific SmarTest DVD was developed with an experienced Ford or GM expert-level technician with years of real world training and experience.

The PC-based DVD requires Windows 98 or higher, speakers, and a DVD-ROM drive.

SmarTest Guided Diagnostics retails for $199 each through national parts stores and tool jobbers.

Cheyboygan, Michigan-based GXT Inc., owner of the Ferret Instruments brand, manufactures and markets a complete line of diagnostic equipment and PC-based guided diagnostics programs
through WDs, parts stores, and jobbers nationwide.
