Default Repair Manuals

So what are the more reputable repair manuals? And I'm talking about the NICE ones, full pages of electrical schematics, etc...the whole 9 yards. Chilton's is obviously a joke and I find the online version hilarious. I've found ten times more info out of a thicker Haynes manual for another car we own than just about anything in a Chiltons, but I know its not THE best.

Second part is where have you found the better books? I've been looking through eBay a little bit and have found myself weary about what is an actual reliable source, particularly later model stuff (like our 2007 van).

Get the factory service manuals. They can be a bit expensive depending on the make/model.

Yeah, found an '08 Hyundai Entourage one for $120. Seemed a bit pricey, but it sure looked like factory.

FSM is going to be the best, by far...or pay for Alldata, if you need it for multiple vehicles

I can get access to All Data at school or through a few different friends. I'm just looking at stuff for home use.
