this book is not for honda crv 2001
on October 10, 2005
I was mislead by the title of this book. I expected it to cover honda crv 2001 as the title suggests, but brief look into the book showed that both engine layouts in the book do not match my car. Also cabine air filer installation was different too. I didn't check the rest.
My experience with this Chilton's type of books they are not adequite even to install security system, since electrical layouts in these books are very schetchy (I am talking about Chilton's Odissey-crv book I got later). They don't even have layout of stock radio, which is probably the most common type of work done. What's the point in buying them then? I wonder if anybody uses this type of books for engine overhauls. If it is as bad as their electrical layouts, what is the point to include that section?
Amazon did poor job as well by not refunding me shipping charges for the book, while I clearly indicated that the book is not about what it claims it is. I guess this is the last Chilton's book I purchased, since the web is much more complete source of the information, for something which is not trivial just get the official shop manual.
