Review:

"From wiper blades to the transmission oil, Torbjornsen shows you that there is nothing to fear from your car and much to be gained with a little understanding." - North Shore News (Canada)
"... great for holiday giving and reading. It guides you through the minefield of preventative maintenance, repair, extended warranties, and over-hyped cure-all products. Tom's advice will help you preserve your car and maximize its resale value." - Auto Trader Classics "In words and detailed photography, the book shows and tells you how and when to do the maintenance needed to keep your truck on the road if not forever, then for at least a couple hundred thousand miles." -The Modesto Bee "If you have a driver on your gift list who isn't exactly mechanically inclined, a perfect primer is Tom Torbjornsen's How to Make Your Car Last Forever. It describes in layman terms how your modern automobile is put together and works, and how to take care of it, including simple maintenance tasks anyone can handle and when it's best to let the experts take over." - The Wichita Eagle
