I'm a car n00b looking for a repair manual for my 2001 chevy malibu. I've heard that the Chilton manuals are way better than the Haynes manuals from several people. However, the Chilton manuals cover years 1997-2000 and 2004-2007. Haynes, on the other hand, has a manual out to cover 1997-2003 Chevy Malibu, Oldsmobile, and Pontiac cars.
What recommendations would you make? Would the 2000 Chilton manual be accurate for my car (especially since Haynes groups 2000 Malibus in the same manual as 2001s)? Would the Haynes manual work just as well?
