Original REVIEW: I prefer Haynes over Chiltons because they talk to me like I'm an idiot. I prefer Chiltons over Haynes because they don't treat me like I'm an idiot. Huh?
Chiltons is geared towards the pro. Haynes towards the novice. Or, like me, the reluctant backyard mechanic. I don't really enjoy working on cars anymore. Haynes will give alot of useless information, but there's alot of important details in there too. Sure you could just look it up on line and I usually do. But when you're right there under the hood you can have the book open next to you. For about $18, yea, I'll do that. I especially like the torque numbers they list. Awesome for a guy that likes to snap bolts.
As for Chiltons, a bit over my head. Haynes is a bit under my head. But since cars are no longer designed with the backyard mechanic in mind I figure that if Haynes doesn't cover it then I probably shouldn't be doing it (based upon my abilities).
I suggest for anyone that does anything more than oil and lube to pick up a Haynes for any vehicles say 4 or more years old. If you're without a laptop you can place outside then you'll be glad you've got the info right there with you when you need to work on it.
First, because the owners manual didn't describe in detail what should be greased as part of the regular maintenance.
Second, at some point I'll have mechanical problems with the truck and I wanted to have this manual on-hand when that happens.
I learned a lot from this manual relating to maintenace an inspection.
What I didn't expect was the tutorial on nut and bolt grades at the beginning of the book. It made for a good read ;)
