I saw this one on Ebay, and wondered if it's what I'm looking for to read trouble codes, clear MIL, etc. etc.

Is it worth it?

EDIT:
I also saw these OBD-to-USB interface cables as well.

Anyone used one w/ laptop, and can verify it's reliability? Thinking on getting it, and if it's not up to snuff, then I'm only out $20 or so. Thanks!

That won't work on CAN bus. It will work with your 2001, but not newer cars.
2006 and newer use the CAN bus and a CAN reader is backward compatible with older systems.
