Product Description

Review

The Hillier's Motor Vehicle Fundamentals Book 1, is one of the best study books I have ever used. It gives you detailed information on how vehicle components work and what they are for, without getting too complicated. It describes elements in such an easy way you'd wouldn't believe you didn't understand it before. I have used other study books that I didn't really understand but the Hillier's book helped me so much that I probably wouldn't have passed Motor vehicles level 1 at college. The book gets straight to the point with an easy to use index and titled paragraphs I'd recommend this to anyone studying Motor Vehicle Technology at college or even if you just want to learn something new and you don't really need to know a lot about cars to understand this book unlike any other books.

If, like me, you love cars, but you've always kinda taken the way it works for granted, get this book.

I was never good at Physics. I have no engineering experience. I bought the Haynes Manual for my MX5 with the real intention of carrying out work but could not penetrate it's language. This book has completely opened my eyes. It has taught me so much. It is so interesting and explained so well and illustrated throughout. I'm 100 pages in and I'm hooked.

This book is utterly invaluable. I can't recommend it more highly.

This new edition of the Hilliers book is an excellent resource for all of my automotive students. We have always used the Hilliers book for studies and find the new 6th edition even better with enhanced images and excellent new material on new technologies such as hybrid and engine technology. The book is very extensive covering the very basics and early developments to new product unlike some other specific qualification led text books.
Great text book.

The books that I purchase are not just for me, I teach automotive engineering for a training provider in my home town. Although we are in an increasingly technical society these books are very useful for broadening the mind of our learners and they benefit enormously from them. I would also recommend them for any DIY enthusiast as a professional automotive engineer they are excellent value for money

This book contains just about every amount of detailed content ideal for motor vehicle studies or if you wish to educate yourself about motor vehicle technology, although amateurs/beginners may struggle as the text can tend to be too technical if you're new to this trade.

Very clearly written, and with excellent illustrations. It also clearly leads from one topic into another and cross references itself. It assumes absolutely zero starting knowledge, so great for someone looking to understand the basics of how a vehicle works. As a beginner to moderately experienced home car mechanic, I have learnt quite a bit from this book. At this price, it only ever needs to help you diagnose and fix a single problem for it to have paid for itself. Aside from that, just very good for general interest if you are interested in cars. Well recommended.

This is an update of an old book. The original portions are excellent and clear, the newer material is unfortunately much less good, often with unclear explanations which will find you chasing off to Google in order to find out what on earth is being explained. If you are using it as a course book, then I am sure your instructor will be the one who clears up the poorly explained sections.

I'm a newbie to motors and I gotta say wow this book explains everything I wanna know. I had to read bits twice for it to sink in. But I can't say enough about this book. I have other Mechanic books but this is the best by a mile.
