Car should be able to text the owner...."Turn me off f**k head!"

But they still don't know HOW...

If only auto manufacturers would supply some kind of a manual with their cars that included all the info that one needed to operate said vehicle properly.     ::)

You mean similar to the one that'a in everyone's glove box & never sees the light of day except when the dealer shows it to you? (Maybe) ;) ;)

I know I am not "typical", but I read the owner's manuals, front-to-back, on just about everything I buy (including vehicles).

Is that what that book is inside the glovebox? Who knew?   :o

I'm the same. I read them all cover to cover and in some cases I read them more than once.

I read them as well. Like Conrad, for car or motorcycle, I read the owners manual cover to cover. Although lately I do this on line because I can make the text larger. But just about everything else, appliances, whatever, I only read the manual if there is a problem.
