Looking on ebay, I see the service manual (down load) for about $8.00 and the Book for $42.00
Would really like to get something to help me with repairs and service.
Would love to hear what others would suggest.
Thanks for your help.

I bought a used manual on Ebay for about $40. it's factory, got grease and dirt on some of the pages and dog eared here and there, paid for it self quickly. I have been tempted to buy things from these home publishing houses but wouldn't want my work to be similarly mistreated so I go where it came from, same with cd's and movies.

That all sounds great. And I do understand your position, even though, I dont completely agree with you.
1. Under copyright laws, when you purchase a published book, CD etc. it is for your personal use only. (unless you pay for additional license etc.) Your not supposed to resell or purchase used........
2. If a company would sell the manuals. (CD or PAPER) at a reasonable rate, especially for their older equipment, there would not be near the market in place for hacked copies.....

Sad to say, though, the way the markets are going, its going to get worse. We purchased a new Honda Passport.... No factory service manuals available to buy. Instead, you can pay an annual subscription of $300.00 to view online.
It seems some of these companies do not want us working on our own vehicles.
Just my opinion
