Xtool X100 PAD Customer Reviews:

Review 1: So far so good!

Awesome product works great haven’t had a problem yet. The case is sturdy very well built tool. So far does everything the maxisys does and use friendly as well.


Review 2: Excellent for key fob and ignition programming new keys…

A friend of mine bought this x-100 pad device,

I needed to program a key fob on my car, he programmed it with ease and without issue, i was impressed, so i also bought it as i am a car enthusiast, i have programmed a few keys and fobs to various cars, works awesome, plus many other features.... it has paid for itself already with the few projects i have done....


Review 3: Amazing product definitely worth the money

X100 pad works flawlessly could use a few improvements like on Chrysler’s, if it would use by type of rfh then it would do all instead of a few, it can’t really pull a pin code on a Chrysler dart but that’s not too much of a big deal, you can get the code from a dealer, but when it comes to Nissan, it pulls the code so easy and it gives the code to you without having to convert it. I love that feature I used it on a Chevy impala for lost keys, and it programmed it well. I messed up by not putting a jump box on, and the vehicle died, but it did program the keys before it died.
