I own several of the "end user" AllData CDs for various cars, and I have access to the quite expensive "master" AllData DVD set, which I'm using for my '93 Loyale.

For my Loyale, there are several very bad omissions and system description errors, really bad ones, like the fuel pressure regulator system for example. The Description of Operation is not merely a bit off, but completely wrong. I wasted a couple of days figuring this out, finally had to compare and take measurements on two different cars to get it right.

The wiring diagrams can sometimes be misleading, too, but that's not a problem exclusive to AllData.

You will find abbreviated repair procedures, and unlike AllData CDs for other cars, the TSBs are not all that useful, at least not for '93.

Still, if you can buy it for $15 or whatever, it's nice to have as a backup. At least you do get some wiring diagrams, which most paper manuals don't. The vacuum diagrams are useless, they're basically the same as the underhood sticker.

I'd like to buy the Chiltons one and try it out. Anybody tried it?
