Subject says it all, is ALLDATA worth the $25.00. I have your everyday
Haynes, I've looked at the Chilton's but I can't find any manuals short of
the real shop manuals that have any detail. I'm trying to run down an
electrical problem in a 1999 Bonneville and need to complete schematics and
the location of modules and such. Does ALLDATA go to this level of detail
or is it just Haynes or Chilton's online?
I am a bit disappointed in my ALLDATA CD. It actually a poorly scanned copy of
the factory Chrysler service manual, and they even made a few mistakes in the
pages they copied. The TSBs are nice, but to answer your question, I do not
think they are worth the money.

The only thing ALLDATA is good for is the dealer TSB's. However, most
dealers I've gone to have given me the TSB's without any problems, and have
not charged me anything for them. I would not pay the money. Haynes and
Chilton's have served me well for many years.
