Has anyone used or purchased a CD manual from Autorepairmanualcd.com (http://www.autorepairmanualcd.com)? The CD's on this site are much cheaper than the actual factory service manual, but how does it compare in accuracy, content, etc?
Well, I wonder how much you can trust a repair manual when the company that makes them doesn't even know what years the Durango was made.
They list model years from 1988 thru 2001! The Durango was not even introduced until 1998. The thing that is even more interesting is that you can buy a manual for a 1988 Durango. I wonder what the manual says when you receive it. It is probably a big book that says "sucker" on every page.
I purchased a FSM on ebay, it's like 3" thick and states on the front 1998 Durango 2 and 4 wheel drive. and have found it to be pretty good (having a 98). I found the manual on the anti-lock brake system is a must with the FSM.
another choice is to look for "Mitchell On Demand" torrents. supernova USED to be a good torrent site(it's a pay sit now). mininova is another. why limit yourself to one make/model when you could have info on all domestics from 1988 on. Imports too if you can find it. I downloaded it some time ago. comes in handy with friends, neighbors etc. it's a BIIIGGGGGG file (5 GIGS) so make sure you've got room for it. happy searching.
I went ahead and ordered the FSM from Chrysler. I've done the same with other cars in the past. It would just be nice if they put those things on a CD. They are always the size of a friggin phone book and just end up getting thrashed after a while...like a phone book. Anyway, thanks for your input.
