ALLDATA Expands Database of Manufacturers’ Automotive Repair Information

ALLDATA has announced significant updates to its OE
information database.

ALLDATA Repair S3000, which covers vehicles from 1982 to
present, is continually updated with manufacturers’ illustrated repair
procedures, Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs), recall notices, wiring
diagrams, parts data and labor information. Repair information on pre-1982
vehicles is available from ALLDATA’s Research Library.

"With the explosive growth of new makes and models,
our database has kept pace," said ALLDATA President Jeff Lagges.
"When a manufacturer adds a vehicle to its lineup or updates a procedure
on an older model, we incorporate that information quickly, so our customers
always have the latest information available. We made that commitment 25 years
ago. It’s an important factor in why our customers remain loyal."

In May 2011, repair information was updated for 118
vehicle models.

Currently, ALLDATA says the Repair S3000 database

• More than 33,000 engine-specific vehicles

• 93 unique vehicle makes

• Nearly 12 million images

• More than 1 million repair articles and TSBs

The company says it was the first software provider to
market electronic and online OE repair information and remains the largest in
terms of available information and the number of customers.
