I don't own one and have never used one. I have a T-handle 3/4" 
breaker bar with suitable sockets for each of the large VW sizes. If 
I stand on the end of that handle I can easily torque or un-torque 
any of the large VW fasteners.  

Yeah, I see the attraction, but I don't see the need. To me it seems 
like an expensive solution to a cheap problem. The case of the Dodge 
yoke may be different, but you'll need to make sure the Dodge has the 
anchors the multiplier you buy needs.
