I have this one from Amazon and it works fine.

Would be pretty hard to "accidentally" clear the codes. You want the ability. Depending what it is, you clear it and it might not come back. Or you make a fix, clear the code, and see if it comes back.

You can also get a bluetooth obd2 adapter for about the same price and use it with Torque on your phone for a ton more functionality like data logging.

Or just bite the bullet and get a vagcom cable. Mine has more than paid for itself by diagnosing and fixing things and keeping my car out of the shop.
