Stopped at the dealer last week and asked for a service manual. Parts guy looked at me like I had two heads. He said they don't sell service manuals any more, theirs come on CD's. Told me if I wanted a manual to contact Helm....they may have one. They do, but at $120 or a CD for $400...... why would a CD coat 4 times the cost of a printed manual? Anyway, that's too much for me.
I always buy a service manual when I buy a vehicle. It tells you how to do little things that an owner can do instead of having the dealer do the same thing for 5 times the cost. As an example how to change a headlight or tail light. You'd be surprised on how hard that is on certain cars. It makes replacing brake pads easy and saves you hundreds of dollars. The list goes on and on.
I am lucky that I have a garage and room to work on cars and am somewhat mechanically inclined.
Does anyone have a better source for a service manual? Like Clymer, etc?
