"Your Volkswagen is not a donkey but the communication considerations are similar. Your car is constantly telling your senses where it's at: what it's doing and what it needs. I don't speak "donkey", but am fairly conversant in "Volkswagen" and will help you learn the basic vocabulary of this language so your Bus, Bug, Ghia, Fast/Squareback, Safari (The Thing), 411 or 412 can become an extension of your own sensory equipment. Perhaps the idea of feeling about your car is a little strange but herein lies a type of rapport which will bridge the communication gap between you and your transportation.
I am a man, engineer, mechanic, lover-feeler who has worked and felt with cars of all descriptions for many years. This book contains the product of these years: clear and accurate Procedures to heal and keep well your Volkswagen. I don't expect you to become a mechanic-I have done that! My understanding and knowledge will be yours as you work. You supply the labor, the book will supply the direction, so we work as a team you and I."
