Which is the best workshop manual?

Post by bandsawman » Sun Oct 05, 2014 9:04 pm

My son owns a 2009 Scirocco 2.0 TDI, and I want to get a workshop manual for it.
I don't want a Haynes manual, as I've found faults with them in the past (quite major faults, too).

What can you recommend?

Thanks, Mike.

The only other manuals I've heard of is the Bentley workshop manuals but not sure if they do one for the Mk3.
What's the problem with the Haynes manuals? I've not had any problems with them but perhaps beacuse mine are old and the car is not so complex.

Bentley haven't published a manual for the MK3 as they are not sold in the US!

I do not know how good your German is but you can find a lot of info on here.
