Our cars are essential to us, and we rely on them for so much that it's hard to imagine being without them.

What if a warning light comes on? What could be the cause? Is the car safe to drive, or do I need a breakdown service or a mechanic? How can I get it to a garage safely? This book covers the most common problems that can occur on modern cars. It's easy to follow, written in language understandable to even those with absolutely no car knowledge, and is full of detailed photographs. Probably the most valuable tool you can have for your car, and you only need basic mechanical skills to get the full benefit of this book.
