5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular Reference for VWs
I think this book is a must-have for anybody who pokes around the inside of their Jetta (or Golf or GTI). Not only does it contain the standard tear-down diagrams, but outlines tests on the car's systems and has charts for diagnosing trouble. (What's that noise?) It's all written in very plain English and is almost always very detailed (although its does have a few...

2.0 out of 5 stars Very complete, but describes vehicles sold in the USA only
This book would seem to be very complete, but on closer inspection, describes only models as specified for sale in the USA. There are likely to be many small differences between European and American specifications, which will limit the book's usefulness to a non American owner. Most especially, it is of very limited use in fixing carburettor fuel system problems - USA...

Not only does it contain the standard tear-down diagrams, but outlines tests on the car's systems and has charts for diagnosing trouble. (What's that noise?)

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the Haynes manual!!, 2 Nov 2003
By A Customer
Although pretty much everyone in the uk will go out and pick up a haynes manual before anything else, I strongly encourage you to get one of these. Aside from a couple of lhd/rhd differences due to the American bias, these manuals are leagues ahead of the haynes in almost every respect. After a lot of work on these cars I can honestly say that the bentley is by far the best resource available.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very complete, but describes vehicles sold in the USA only, 3 April 2002
By A Customer
This book would seem to be very complete, but on closer inspection, describes only models as specified for sale in the USA. There are likely to be many small differences between European and American specifications, which will limit the book's usefulness to a non American owner. Most especially, it is of very limited use in fixing carburettor fuel system problems - USA cars were all fuel injected, even back in 1985. European/UK cars were usually fitted with carburettors. At least, mine was (choke problems were reason for purchase), correspondingly, I returned the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best VW Manuals Ever!!, 10 Mar 2011
By 
C. Homersham (UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Volkswagen GTI, Golf, and Jetta Service Manual: 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992: Gasoline, Diesel and Turbo Diesel, Including 16V (Hardcover)
I have the Beetle version and have bought this as the haynes manual didn't cover hardly any of the electricals...unlike this book which covers everything...to the point of my VW buddies nabbing it to solve their problems. If you own a VW of any description invest in the offical service manual it's worth it!
