5.0 out of 5 stars Useful for identifying simple faults
My husband has bought Haynes Manuals for all the cars we have owned. They are a really useful book for identifying simple faults and showing step by step instructions to solve them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be better
Covers 5 petrol and 3 diesel models, therefore many procedures are repeated numerous times for the different models. Agree with the previous review that "exploded diagrams" from earlier manuals are almost absent. Some of the "how to" explanations could be clearer also.I often feel the need to go on owner group websites to get a more detailed description of what needs to...

All in all, worth having for reference but could, and should, have been better.

3.0 out of 5 stars Golf/Jetta 5 Manual, 17 April 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: VW Golf and Jetta Petrol and Diesel Service and Repair Manual: 2004 to 2007 (Haynes Service and Repair Manuals) (Hardcover)
Bought this as it is the nearest you can (easily) get for my Octavia II -> quite good but misses many obvious issues (as do many recent Haynes manuals - not like the "old days" when you could do an awful lot from them).

One MAJOR omission are exploded diagrams of the brakes, front and rear suspension, engine mountings and other items which an owner could relatively EASILY repair!

Market leader for wannabe mechanics and a source if useful info when fault finding is required.
Recommended for any car owner who wants to know more on their car.
