Cengage Learning (www.delmar.cengage.com), a leading provider of training and information materials, recently announced the release of the Chilton 2008 Labor Guide Manuals and CD-ROM. These updated versions include hundreds of new labor operations such as maintenance services and electronic system diagnosis. Available in CD-ROM format (1-44283-2041-5, $199.95) or as a Domestic and Import Manual Set (1-4283-2035-0, $199.95), the Chilton 2008 Labor Guide covers cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs for model years 1981- current year.
The Chilton 2008 Labor Guides include labor times for Standard, Severe and OEM warranty situations. Accepted by most insurance and extended warranty companies, Chilton labor times consider the real world environment in which technicians work. Vehicle makes and models conform to current Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA) standards, making the Chilton Labor Guide up-to-date with today’s repair industry standards. Each OEM is arranged alphabetically by section for easy reference, and improved indexing means easier access to today’s repair industry standards.
The Chilton 2008 Labor Guide CD-ROM automatically calculates labor charges, taxes and additional parts accounting for total job estimates. Professional estimates for customers and worksheets for technicians can be created and printed at any time. The Chilton Labor Guide CD-ROM also keeps track of prior customers, estimates, and allows users to enter time and rates for their own parts or service packages.
The Chilton 2008 Labor Guide Manual Set is split into two volumes; domestic and imported vehicles. Users will find referencing easier with tabs displaying contents by manufacturer and model, two indexes – labor operations and systems – in each model group, and page numbering that includes the manufacturer code so the reader knows where they are in the manual. Each volume is arranged alphabetically by manufacturer to make navigating quick and easy.
For more than 80 years, Chilton products have set the standard for reference sources for automotive professionals. Keeping up with technology and industry trends, Chilton continues to better serve today’s technicians. Using the most up-to-date standards for service times and warranties, this indispensable resource is the perfect tool for any automotive garage or technician.
