    Has anyone signed up for this? From looking at the demo, it has Toyota Service Manuals in .pdf format and it shows the Save button. Could you pay $15 bucks for two days of access and download the manuals? I'll give it a shot in a few days if no one else has done it. It's also got electrical diagrams, but from what I can see in the demo, there's no quick and easy way to download those.

    I'm surprised no one has responded! I finally got around to trying this out today. I paid $15 for two days of access and appears to be calendar days- so from whenever you sign up the first day until midnight Pacific time the following day.

    I have access to Tech Tips, TSBs, New Car Features, Campaign Publications (just info on the TPWS issue), Accessory Installation Instructions and Accessory Diagnostic Guides, and Collision Repair guides. All of this is viewed in .pdf and easily downloadable.

    You also have access to the Electical Wiring Diagrams. These are kinda interactive and you can click on them to further info. You can also select to print them and when you do that they open as pdf and you're able to save them as .pdf but it's just 2D wiring diagrams.

    There's also access to the full Repair Manuals. For 2005 and prior these open as pdf files. There's probably over a 1000 for each repair manual so it would be lots to download the get the whole thing, but it's possible. You could do it in a day. For 2006 and later it's some web format. If you have Adobe Acrobat you could print them to a pdf, if not it becomes much harder to save them. If you have Microsoft OneNote you can send or print them to OneNote to save them that way and then save them to pdf if you wanted to.

    Overall, it's pretty cool to have all that access available for just $15.

    I guess that's for everyone to decide on their own. The Collision Repair Manual and EWDs alone would cost $150. The Repair Manuals would be $766. $15 and a few hours to download those you're likely to use seems like a pretty good deal to me.
