Repair Your Luxury Car with Chilton Repair Manuals

If you drive a luxury car, you probably wonder if there are any ways to save money keeping it on the road. Now, we’re not talking to people who can afford to buy a new luxury car, but those who’ve waited for depreciation and mileage to siphon a fair double-digit percentage off its value. After all, most people who can afford to buy new usually don’t worry about how much it costs, and usually don’t get their hands dirty doing it themselves. On the other hand, owning and maintaining a luxury car, as a do-it-yourselfer, doesn’t mean you have to leave maintenance and repair of your Lexus, Audi, BMW, or Volvo in the hands of expensive technicians.

Unfortunately, many DIYers shy away from luxury cars because they seem to be so complex. Really, they’re not that much more complicated than economy cars. An engine is still an engine and a circuit is still a circuit – there are just more of them. For the most part, you don’t even need special tools or special training to maintain, diagnose, or repair the most common problems on your luxury car, no matter how old it is. Of course, the most valuable tool in any toolbox is not an array of 10-mm sockets, but a good repair manual.
