The 4x4 Book: The essential guide to buying, owning, enjoying and maintaining an off-road vehicle [Hardcover]

Paul Guinness

Available from these sellers.

Book Description

31 May 2006
In the past ten years, 4x4s have evolved from somewhat agricultural vehicles used primarily as workhorses, and have carved out their own market niche as mainstream, everyday means of transport. This extensively illustrated book provides a complete introduction to the world of 4x4s, with practical advice on how to choose the most suitable vehicle, and what to expect when running a 4x4, as well as guidance on off-road driving techniques, towing and maintenance. Essential reading for anyone contemplating ownership of their first 4x4, and for existing owners who want to maximise their enjoyment of 4x4 ownership.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Overview but not a How To Book or Consumer Reports 2 Sep 2009
By Tunes Plus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I reviewed another book where another reviewer complained that it was a "coffee table" book. This is much the same, an overview of all types of 4X4s with lots of nice pictures and info expecially about what's available in Europe. I think that it is great for someone thinking about buying an all wheel drive, but I'm sure some people will be disappointed. It brings up the questions you need to ask yourself before you buy. Some will find the questions obvious and the answers weak, but it is a good place to start. It's not as strong as a Consumer Reports as far as rating each vechile, but it covers a lot of ground. With all the talk here about better fuel economy, some of the small European models could show up here in the US (but don't hold your breath).
