Would it be a good choice for general car examination and automotive work?

It's a Fluke, so even with reported recent drops in quality, it should still be better than most "generic" multimeters, I would think. That said, most generic multimeters are likely fine for automotive work, which is not typically lab work level.
One suggestion, however, would be to look at a clamp meter that can do DC currents. Very handy for car work, as it allows you to avoid cutting into circuits. Big time-saver IMO. You can get a decent one for likely less than the above one is.

Alligator and T-pins ;)
I got T-pins too. on water proof connectors it's not always easy to use the T pin coming in from the wire side. I ended up using finishing nails and alligator clips. The cupped head on the finishing nail allowed me to contact the male pins inside the connector but it was really a pain holding everything in place...Hence, I purchased the special purpose leads.

fluke 88 is a solid meter sticking in the fluke line. i have the older version of the mac voltmeter Digital Multimeter - https://www.mactools.com/products/em721, caught it on sale and pretty much got the amp clamp for free on. if your just doing basic voltage and resistance checks you can get away with a lower priced unit that will still get the job done, a higher priced unit may have features that you might not need so why pay for it if your not going to use it
