I also paid $300 for the genuine Toyota three-volume service manual when we picked up my wife's 2004 Prius. My 2011 Overland is the first vehicle I've bought for which I can't get a service manual.

Re: Metric or not?

For what its worth on the metric subject, SAE is weird. I'm an American, and I love my country, but SAE is dumb. The vast majority of the world is metric. Why we had to be the special kids on the playground is beyond me. I like SAE, but metric makes more sense. That said, this is America, we use SAE, get used to it.

it is the US System; the metirc CRAP never caught on. you buy GAS IN US GALLONS not liters. A can of beer is 12 ounces, ETC.
Sorry if I offended you but you have to see it from the perspective of the rest of the world. Of course you are not alone in not having adopted IS units generally. According to Wikipedia, Burma and Liberia also haven't converted. However, it is good to know that your auto industry as well as your aerospace industry and military have fully converted. BTW, the standard US military jerrycan is a 20 litre can.
