Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

You're a perfectly competent adult, an expert in your field, you run your own life, and you're proud of your decision-making ability and accomplishments. Then the car breaks down and your mechanic asks what the problem seems to be, and you are reduced to saying, "Well, uh, it doesn't run..." Fear not! Help is on the way. Deanna Sclar offers simple, straightforward explanations and instructions for the seriously car-repair-impaired, and the over 300 illustrations help you tell the difference between the gizmo that makes the other parts go up and down, and other stuff. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Being a young woman with a car that needed frequent repairs when this book first came out, I was at the mercy of every greedy mechanic out there. At the time, I could barely afford to put gas in my car. I knew nothing about cars and wasn't at all mechanically inclined. This book saved me hundreds of dollars in maintenance and minor repairs. Good descriptions and lots of pictures. Now I'm looking for a copy for a teen with his first old car.

I read the first edition years ago, and whenever I work on my car I wish I still had my old copy to help explain some of the jargon found in other books. Please note, do not lend this book to anyone, its that good! Now I don't really need it because I have so many other books to help me with car repairs, but it was this book which got me started. To be honest, I think this book started the "dummy series". When I saw the title of the book I thought, now this is the book for me, 'cause I don't know anything. Anyway, please don't buy other repair books first, I did and I had to buy this one before I understood anything. This book can save you money and open up a new hobby for you. Call me crazy, but I like it :o).

This book is wonderful! It has all the little basics for those daily drivers that don't know much about their vehicle. It has helped me quite a few times, and I know quite a lot about cars! I would recommend this book to anyone that needs to change their oil, know what's under the hood, or change their flat tire.

Long before the colour of yellow became synomynous with dummies was an amazing book on the maintenance of cars by Deanna Sclar. The book is about to be reissued but this classic covers everything from your first oil change, shopping for a good used car, getting a good deal on a new car with a bit of ZEN thrown in.
