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.

That certainly was stupid.  All the driver had to do was rev it up and blow her head out.   Geez.

How strange is THAT? She had her head stuck up her own tailpipe and the tailpipe of a truck at the same time....

If she was trying to prove that she could "suck start a diesel" she did it all wrong. :rotflmao: :rotflmao:
