Matco or Snap-On?
I am a honda tech in training and i want to know what tool company is better. I am already working at a Honda dealer so these tools will be used daily. Honda/Acura Techs @ a dealer let me know what you think.

Craigslist! Both are about the same quality. SnapOn will probably cost a little more. Craigslist almost always has mechanics selling complete boxes and tools which will be the smartest way to start out.

either is just as good make sure that which ever you buy has a truck that runs by the dealership you work at so you can replace broken tools in a timely manner. if a truck runs at the dealership you can just take the tool on the truck and get it replaced. but if not you might have to find a dealer for the tool and take...

I'd personally go with Crafstman by Sears. Sure Snap-On is great, but it is much easier to exchange a defective tool by Craftsman than it is with Snap-On. I've really never had problems with either of them, but you can even exchange a Craftsman tool if it's damaged from abuse/missuse. Snap-On is much more restrictive... More

Between Matco and Snap-on i would definitely have to say that Snap-on tools are better for the long run. They will cost you a bit more however they don't break near as often as Matco and some of the other brands. Don't get me wrong Matco is a great tool, i have plenty of Matco tools myself, but Snap-On tools just don't... More

You won't find a quality advantage, they're both pretty evenly matched. In my area, Snap On dealers are easier to find when you need something new or something serviced, so that would be my choice. Pick which one you can get to the quickest if you ever need to.
