5.0 out of 5 stars VW transporter manual 4 Oct 2011

This is a must have for anyone with an old kombi. it is very detailed about everything with easy to follow steps (provided you are sort of mechanically minded). I use it regularly and it has been a great asset to me. IF you have an old kombi, i highly recommend you buy this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yet another manifestation of Rilke's poetic genius 26 Nov 2002
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Though personally, I find him much sounder on the Mercedes or BMW, but that's just me. Also check out Soren Kierkegaard's masterful explication of the inner workings of the Volvo, and Haruki Murakami's recent works on Toyotas; he is especially enlightening on the interaction of enviromentalism and modern urbanism as represented by the Prius.
