Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This volume updates and expands the 1977 edition of the same title. Much has changed in the automotive world since then, including the addition of such safety features as anti-lock brakes, air bags, and reinforced passenger compartment structures; emission reductions through computer-controlled combustion and fuel injection; and performance enhancements owing to reduced weight, improved tires, active suspension systems, and peppier engines. These changes and many other automotive terms are covered in this easy-to-read text. Dinkel (editor-in-chief, Road & Track magazine) writes with the right combination of technical expertise and clear, concise language as he explains everything automotive. Over 400 photos and illustrations help the reader decipher even the most intricate automotive concepts. Recommended for public and specialized libraries.--Eric C. Shoaf, Brown Univ. Lib., Providence, RI Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
