Car Care for Volkswagen Golf, Jetta, Fox, Cabrio and Cabriolet is intended to help you learn more about your car and save you money on its upkeep and operation.
The first two sections of this guide are likely to be the most used, since they contain basic maintenance procedures and tune-up information. Later sections deal with the more complex systems of your car, and are covered to the extent that the average do-it-yourselfer can perform seemingly difficult operations with confidence.
A secondary purpose of this guide is a reference for owners who want to understand their vehicle and/or their mechanics better. In this case, no tools at all are required.
This guide will not explain such things as rebuilding a differential for the simple reason that the expertise required and the investment in special tools make this task uneconomical. It will, however, give you detailed instructions to help you change your own brake pads and shoes, replace spark plugs, and perform many more jobs that can save you money, give you personal satisfaction and help you avoid expensive problems.
