I used to have a suzuki vehicle and it was not running very well so i decided to fix it myself but i was not sure what book to choose because there are so many out there. any way i got this book and i fixed her up in just one week and the only thing i paid for is the book. thanks to amazon.com i fixed it up so well when i decided to sell it every body wanted to buy it i really needed this book and it helped me alot.

While I know Chilton has a decent reputation and they tend to cover things in depth I am extremely unhappy with this book. Many manuals such as this one try too hard to fit many many years and models of vehicles in one book and, unfortunately, Samurai owners suffer in this paticular case. I suspect that if you own a Tracker or Sidekick you'll get something out of this book but it is certainly lacking on coverage of the Samurai - and worse yet, if you have a carbureted model you'd be better of looking for general how-to online because you won't get anything more in this book. As an example if you look up fuel tank and look under the "Carbureted Models" section you're greeted with a bold notice that says "This is a general procedure and slight differences may be applicable for your vehicle" and the instructions basically say no more than to disconnect battery, drain fuel, disconnect hoses, and remove the tank. As in nearly every other section that I've encountered you are given no diagrams for the older sammys and in some cases your lucky to even find diagrams for the TFI sammys.

This is the only manual that covers the 1.8l Sidekick Sport, so I got what I needed. As usual, good for the DIY'er but won't necessarily cover everything. I wouldn't be without one.

Just as most Chilton's manuals are, it's helpful. Schematics and information that can't be found, or difficult to locate, on the internet. My only problem with the manual is there are a few small incorrect details in the manual, though nothing major. All in all, it's definitely worth the money.

Much better than Haynes. Information that is relatively easy to understand. Lots of pictures. Have had Chiltons for other vehicles and would highly recommend. The alternative is relying on the internet. The latter I would not recommend. Yes there is good information on the net but there is also a lot of crap. Your choice. Bob S.

I have both of the main manuals for the Samurai and this one is probably the better and easier to follow in my opinion. I just used it to replace the timing belt, oil pump, oil pan gasket, and the water pump without much of an issue. The torque specs were right on for the most part with the exception of the crankshaft pulley.

It's okay. Gives good general idea on how things work. In trying to be easy to read, the writers miss a lot of points and steps. Still a good book to have in the library if you have one of these models.
