A new book in the RAC handbook series

Do you know how your car works? This book dissects and explains one of the finest inventions ever made. Written in a simple, jargon-free language and packed with illustrations and cutaways, it will suit everyone from a pupil with a poster of a supercar on his wall, to a housewife who is just curious about the goings-on beneath her car’s bonnet to even the more experienced tinkering mechanic. It is a simple operating guide to the main parts of a car, its systems and safety devices. A must for all new and current car owners with little knowledge of what goes on under the bonnet!
Whether you're just curious, or wish to become a more knowledgable car owner, this book will start you on an exciting journey of discovery.
