Factory Service Manual

Does anyone know where the best place to get a Factory Service Manual for a Commander Sport (3.7L) is? I've seen them online for $20, but I was wondering if anyone knew of someplace I could get it for cheaper.

Also, does Haynes not make a manual for the Commander? I've heard good things about their manuals, but they don't have one on their website.

Ain't no $20, tho. I've not had great experience with Haynes manuals, but $395 for an official factory shop manual is a bit pricey, might make Haynes more palatable

What about this? This looks like the factory service manual in pdf format, right?

Might be, just have to make sure its for the XK, not the XH, as the engines are other systems are different.

Yep, although I've got the '08...the part that worries me, shop manuals are always copyrighted, so $20 for a PDF sounds a bit light; anybody with an '07 wanna order one and let us cheapskates know if it's the real deal?

I'm not looking for anything specific. I'd just like to have one for basic maintenance, especially stuff that the dealership would charge and arm and a leg for. A Haynes manual would be more what I'm looking for really, but it doesn't look like they make one for the Commander.

Those aren't manuals, they're sets of encyclopedias!

Awesome price on the first set, very tempted to buy one.
