As Xtool continues to push the limits of it’s software, there are instances where it may exhibit temperamental behaviour or even fail to function altogether. While the tool is indeed powerful, the uncertainty surrounding its reliability for basic service functions may discourage many from relying solely on it in a commercial setting.

On a more positive note, for hobbyist or as a supplementary tool in a workshop, it can excel and perform admirably.
