Default Maintenance manual recommendation

I'm looking for a recommendation for a good set of maintenance manuals for my 2003 Chevy Tahoe.

Thoughts?

Service manuals? Go to the dealer and order the FSM(field service manual). Or go to ALLDATAdiy.com Leading Source of Factory Automotive Repair Information and get a 1 year subscription for like $15.

I 100% agree on obtaining the factory service manual. That'* the end all be all that is used at the dealership.

Alldata isn't half bad either, especially if you don't want a tree stuck on your bookshelf.

As other have already stated, by far the best are the OEM factory service manuals. Here is a set on Ebay:

2003 Chevy Tahoe Suburban Avalanche Yukon Escalade Service Shop Manual Set | eBay

Those are too expensive (although probably cheaper than the dealer), but if you keep your eyes open a set might become available at a reasonable price.
