Why is Haynes so slow to put out new manuals?
It seems like every time I buy a new vehicle, I have to wait another year or two before Haynes has the maintenance manual available for that vehicle. We currently have a '98 Dodge Intrepid which we leased new. Since '98 was the first year of the current genereation of Intrepids, I had to wait until 2000 before Haynes had a manual available for this car. Now that we're getting ready to purchase a Mazda MPV, I checked the manual availability and sure enough, Haynes doesn't have a manual for the 2000 and newer MPV's. Being in the fourth model year of the current model, you'd think by now they'd have a manual available for this van. Why are they so stinkin' slow about making these manuals available? Are there any good alternatives? I hate Chilton's manuals because their books don't cover just one model, they cover several so they end up being not specific enough. The factory manuals are way too expensive. I'm not paying $90-$100 for a manual. Any suggestions?
