Very detailed text for repairs and maintenance. Makes even the daunting task relatively easy. To have 5 stars, it should have more detailed pictures. Color would receive a 6th star. Best manual on the market. Worth it 110%

I must qualify that I am not a mechanic by training but enjoy doing a lot of the work in our cars. That said I found this manual disappointing in that it really does not offer any kind of help in the maintenance of the car for people with little mechanical training. By "Service Manual" I understood that there would be detailed information of how to do certain things like working on the AC components, transmission, etc, that is more that just changing your oil. It is not there!. It just gives you pictures of part by part components with little descriptions of procedures. I can get the pictures in the Internet! going to a bookstore does no good because this is one of those sealed books until you buy. I just did not like it and will sell it as soon as I can :^(

The manual has detailed descriptions on how to take elements apart, but when it comes to codes it let you hang. I have a series of error messages which are also spelled out in the book, but it does not point you to the faulty part.

It would be a good idea to have an additional section which points you in the right direction based on the error codes.

Overall I would recommend the book since there is nothing better out there.

I have Bentley manuals on all of the VW's I've owned they give me the info that I need. Of course if I need a how to manual I'll turn to the Haynes Manual.

This bentley book is basically an exploded parts diagram, with alot of footnotes referenced to each separate part. This book is fine for factory techs, who've been schooled in detail on the car, but for the home user, it leaves alot to be desired. I like the Haynes format better, in that they walk you through a procedure, instead of just giving you an exploded parts diagram. Also, some things are just missing from the Bentley, and you still have to scratch your head for an hour, and search their huge book, before you realize you have to just figure it out for yourself. I think the book could be alot better, especially due to its high price and large size. One positive, is they list the fault codes in back, but you can find even better lists of the DTCs online, so you don't need the book to read the codes. Please, Haynes, write a manual for this car! I'll buy it!

being an ex-mechanic, I found this book to be quite good. I use it every time I need to do some work on my VW Beetle. It might not be for the beginner mechanic or somebody that is not mechanically inclined like a haynes or chiltons book. But it definitely has more information in it regarding your particular vehicle then the others. I've used the others also, but nothing beats the actual service manual for your car, it has the trouble codes, electrical wiring diagrams and other information that the others don't include. Get this manual and keep your new beetle running strong.

This manual was worth every penny spent! It has saved me soooooo many headaches when repairing my 2000 Beetle at home. So far, I have worked on nearly everything on this car just short of rebuilding the engine and transmission, which wouldn't have been possible in many cases (without breaking sensitive parts) without the help of this invaluable book. Though I will say that the affordability of this manual was key. THANK YOU... THANK YOU... THANK YOU!!!
