    The VAG specific tool that's often recommended most is Ross-Tech's VAG-COM. However, any OBD-II scan tool should be able to give you insight into a check-engine light. You can find basic scan tools from $50 up to very advanced ones for many thousands. If you plan to do any bi-directional work (resetting service indicators, coding, etc.) you'll need something on the higher-end (not just a basic scan tool).

    OBDEleven can do almost everything VAGcom can at a fraction of the cost and unlimited vins.

    Do you feel I need to get it diagnosed immediately and NOT keep driving it?

    If you're in a pinch, you can take it to your local autoparts store and have them tell you what codes it has. Then you can decide how you want to proceed.
