I know there are CD-ROM versions on ebay from time to time. Very good too.

Hi billyboy. I couldn't find a Chilton or Haynes manual for my '00 Outback either; I don't think they publish them for recent models. I bought OEM manuals off eBay for not too much and well worth the money. I also subscribe to AllDataDiy and the info on there looks identical to the OEM manual except their pictures aren't too good of a resolution. There's lots of cheap manuals on CD on eBay; don't know the quality as I haven't bought any.

I don't like Haynes manual too much as I have found many errors in it for my '96 Legacy, but it is a good reference for how they say to do a procedure without using those special Subaru tools. --Louis ;-)

Try books4cars.com


Although not entirely applicable, I got the shop manual for my 98 Legacy from them.

I was able to find manuals for several newer subarus there.

FYI: http://www.amazon.co...sprefix=subaru
I know that the previous posts in this thread are a few years old but I'm sure that there are some folks who are still interested in obtaining do it yourself manuals for their 2000 and up Subes.
