I just purchased a 2011 Buick Lucerne CXL 3.9 L. I would like a good repair manual the ones from Buick are very expensive. Any suggestions?

The Chiltons books are pretty cheap and a good place to start.

At my local library, we have free access to ChiltonLibary on-line that are quite comprehensive. I imagine the service is aimed at professionals but have no idea to be honest. Not sure how this differs from the Chiltons book.

EBay has GM 2011 Lucerne manuals for $300.00, not sure what you consider too much.
I know those are the ones to have because I’ve had those on other cars but I only needed one manual. Just seeing if there’s any other options out there

The online services might be a option if you don't need to have the hard copy laying around. The other parts store types are a little to general for most people, but they are priced right. There are digital ones on Ebay in the $25 to $30 range but have no experience with them, seems that it's legit who knows.

Hmm, know from years past the factory manuals in whichever form can be obtained are the best to make your own repairs. Chiltons and others I found are good for general repairs but when you need extensive wiring schematics let's say, the info just isn't included.

Last set I bought was for my '87 Corvette and there was nothing on that car I couldn't fix. One repair can easily pay for the books or factory PDF. Prefer actual hands on pages myself.
