This was just posted to our reps and I'm pleased to share it here:

Canadian Vehicles

We will begin covering Canadian specific vehicles in OD5.com. We have approved over 800 articles the February data release. We have approved over 500 articles that will follow in the March release. The coverage is listed below:

OD5.com data release scheduled for Thursday February 4th:

Manufacturer Model Years
Acura 1.7 EL 2001-04
Buick Allure 2007-09
Nissan X-Trail 2005-07
Pontiac Wave & G3 Wave 2006-09
Pontiac Montana SV6 2007-08

OD5.com data release scheduled for Thursday March 4th:

Manufacturer Model Years
Acura 1.7 EL 2005
Dodge SX 2003-05
Buick Allure 2005-06
GM Jimmy 2003-05

What's coming next?

Acura 1.6 EL, Acura CSX, BMW 323i, Epica, Optra & Optra5, Magentis, Firefly, Sunrunner, Impreza 2.5 TS, Swift+, Echo Hatchback, + + +

A few notes regarding this new coverage:

1) The Canadian models will appear in the normal drop-down selection menu (there will be no US/Canadian "selection switch" at this time)

2) Until our next generation of product arrives the Canadian model selection will be vehicles that have a unique model name (example = Nissan X-Trail). This is because the current product design won't handle 2 vehicles with the same model name.

3) We have a list of vehicles that will allow us to continue adding coverage throughout the year. Priority is partially contolled by data availability.

4) We are working on getting Mitchell1 Wiring Diagrams, but at the present time the OEM wiring is included in the appropriate diagnostic article, not in a WIRING DIAGRAM article.

5) We don't have Parts and Labor coverage for these vehicles (we are still working on a solution to this).

We want to thank all our Canadian Rep's who have been patiently waiting for this coverage. We understand coverage is not 100% at this time but with over 1000 articles now approved ready for product and more being approved every month we wanted to get this information in front of our customers.

Thanks Again Guys,
Scott, Gary and Jim
