The cheapeast OBD2 to USB cables on ebay and other websites specifically only mention VW and Audi in their titles and descriptions. Do these cables only work with VWs/Audis or will they also work with other OBD2 cars such as Fords? Here's an ebay example.

The one you see for VW/Audi will not be compliant with some other vehicle's you need to buy

If they only specify VW / Audi. That is most likely all they will work on. I would contact the seller. Also, you can get inexpensive scanners at most nationally recognized parts stores that will work on your vehicle.
