Covers Domestic & Import Cars, Light Trucks, Vans & SUV's for the year range 1981 to 2011*
Also includes limited coverage on 2012 Domestic Models
The Chilton 2012 Labor Guide provides repair times for 1981-2011 vehicle models, with limited coverage of 2012 domestic models. Chilton's editors consider warranty times, component locations, component type, the environment in which technicians work, the training they receive, and the tools they use when calculating a labor time. To allow for vehicle age, operating conditions, and type of service, the Chilton 2012 Labor Guide provides standard and severe service times, plus OEM warranty times. Vehicle makes and models conform to current Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA) standards. In addition, the CD-ROM offers a helpful parts list that simplifies adding parts to your estimate or work order, a keyword search engine, and a calendar feature which allows users to quickly locate work requests by day, week, and month. Most service writers, and insurance adjusters and warranty claims professionals rely on Chilton labor times, shouldn't you?
