The Chilton 2012 Labor Guide CD-ROM features new models and new labor operations in order to stay current with new technologies
The 2012 edition provides repair times for 1981-2012 import and domestic vehicles. Chilton's editors consider warranty times, component locations, component type, the environment in which technicians work, the training they receive, and the tools they use when calculating a labor time. To allow for vehicle age, operating conditions, and type of service, the Chilton 2012 Labor Guide provides standard and severe service times, plus OEM warranty times. Vehicle makes and models conform to current Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA) standards. In addition, the CD-ROM offers a helpful parts list that simplifies adding parts to your estimate or work order, a keyword search engine, and a calendar feature which allows users to quickly locate work requests by day, week, and month.
