Which is spectacularly useless in most cases!

Curious as to why you feel that way? It has answered all my questions so far on the RAV4 and I have printed all the relevant topics to PDF and hard copy to keep handy while I am servicing the car. Well worth the $26 it cost me, especially as I am used to having the FSM sitting next to me when I work on my other Toyotas.


Cheers,


Rod

What my library had online was missing most sections and didn't seem to have much that was relevant to the Hybrid model - but was presented as the hybrid service manual.

"Online" is the key. AllData requires libraries to offer its services in-library only, so I don't know what type of info you were able to see online. This is to keep users from bypassing the subscription fees and using the service from their homes and shops all day long to do repairs for commercial profit.

Hmmm. What I have access to online (paid) looks like it was taken from the FSM and I found it to be very complete. Will have to check out our local library and see what they offer.

Looks like it's also missing steering/suspension info, and brake info as well.
