AllData repair CD ROM

Reviewed by: Jac Brondum -

A Popular Mechanics reair CD Rom of containing the Miata among other cars.

The product doesn't replace an actual repair manual, and is too high level to be of any use. The pictures are often too grainy to read numbers or text. More often than not there are no actual steps (or hints) for any specific repair, just a picture saying follow the numbers (which are hard to read).

I found the product hard to use, and not very user friendly. I also had problems with the CD causing my 4x CD to report disk not ready errors. Going to a different computer with a 24x CD worked fine. I think it's from the serial number sticker stuck on one edge of the CD.
