With the reputation for quality, efficiency and precision that is familiar to any enthusiast with a fondness for German automobiles, there is no doubt that the names of Volkswagen, BMW and Mercedes among others have spread far and wide beyond their native country. One company which kept pace with them in the early part of the 20th century but never quite managed to keep going for as long as them was the Dampf-Kraft-Wagen, a company which was notable in the 1930s as Germany’s leading motorcycle producer. During the rest of its time, DKW merged with Audi and with Daimler Benz, but eventually ceased production in 1966.
One thing that DKW vehicles had in common with other familiar German marques is that they were endlessly efficient. This is why, almost half a century after they ceased production, the company is still talked about with some reverence. However, anyone who now owns a DKW automobile must be familiar with the same worries that anyone who owns a car by a now-defunct company has – how do you ensure that the repairs can be done on a car which has few ”brothers” and therefore a limited supply of spare parts? One way is to ensure that you have a service manual and can rely on that for repair advice.
