Positive AllData Experience

I've used AllData before and I was very impressed. I have a 04 Suzuki Forenza. Since suzuki went out of business and is a foreign manufacturer, it is impossible to get a repair book from autozone or advanced. I went on AllData and i was able to find blueprints for almost every repair possible on my car. Also, AllData provided me with a discount when I signed up so it turned out to be like $10. Real good service. The value exceeds the price.
