Tutorials about the general approach to model Vehicles (Maya)


first of all, i am the new here and english is not my mother tongue, so please be kind to me.
In the context of an application-test I want to design and model some vehicles with Maya (since i have free access to it).

I understand the basic tools of maya but when it comes to bigger projects like detailed vehicles I have n clue where to start.

For example, i dont know how to model very precise, make bending shapes with crisp edges and all of thise while only using quads. (So i can import my models into Mudbox,...) Also how do i approach such projects, start with simple shapes and then splitting them?

Do you know some good tutorials, optimally free, which teaches those kinds of stuff? I watched a basic tutorial for maya but they must have thought, the buyer is working with a PC for his first time. (I waited for the instruction for how to close the window^^)

Thx for your help
