VW Golf 1 (1974-1983) - Modellgeschichte, Kaufberatung, Pannenhilfe (Passion Oldtimer)

Unter dem Serientitel "Passion Youngtimer" beschreibt dieses Schneider-Buch detailreich die Modellgeschichte der ersten Golf-, Jetta- und Caddy-Generation inklusive diverser Sport- und Tuningvarianten. Da selbst die jüngsten Golf I-Exemplare 30 Jahre alt sind, haben sie nun Old- bzw. Youngtimer- Status und werden verstärkt gesucht. Eine Kaufberatung gibt nützliche Tipps, eine Tabelle mit Marktpreisen schließt sich an.

Die Technik des Golf I ist einfach, aber für Oldtimerrallyes oder den Alltagseinsatz noch kompliziert genug. Daher enthält das Buch umfangreiche, genaue Informationen über alle gängigen Wartungsarbeiten in den Bereichen Karosserie, Motor, Antrieb, Fahrwerk, Bremsen etc. - unentbehrlich daheim in der Garage und im Pannenfall unterwegs. In die Kapitel zu den Hauptbaugruppen werden Pannenratgeber integriert.

Nebenbei erklärt das Buch - gut verständlich für Laien und Einsteiger - die Grundfunktionen der klassischen Autotechnik, angefangen bei den Bremsen über Benzinversorgung und Kupplung bis zu Kühlung, Radaufhängung und Zündung. Es schließen sich Tabellen mit technischen Daten, Einstellwerten und Drehmomentwerten zum Golf I an. Schaltpläne und Stichwortverzeichnis sind ebenfalls enthalten.

Beschreibt alle Golf I Modelle (1974-1983), andere bis 1993.
Ausführungen: Benziner, Diesel, GTI, Cabrio, Caddy und Jetta I.

Aus dem Inhalt:
- Teil 1: Modellgeschichte Golf I, Jetta I, Caddy
- Teil 2: Wartung, Reparatur, Pannenhilfe mit Störungssuch-Tabellen
