A very solid X2 to the last post.
The Haynes is generally a bit better but often curved in information by using Euro right hand drive cars since done in England. Chilton does not go as deep in technical detail but both will be commonly limited in scope to your individual car as they often dump too many years worth of models into one book and commonly show you an engine that is not the one in your car. Same with body and trim and other detail things you want to see, they may have it for a certain year but not others.
I used to sell them when I was in parts and many of them came back with buyer saying it had nothing on his car in it. While some of that was rotten people using them to then get the $30 back after use, I suspect some of what they said was true as I have run into the same issues and I also commonly opened them up right there with customer and had us both look to discover it was just like I said, there wasn't that much the buyer could use there.
At $15 I said buy them, at $30 not so much, they are getting too high (at least to me) for what they offer.
