One of my favorite features of an owner’s manual is the inclusion of some basic part numbers. Take for example light bulbs. Light bulbs may seem like a simple, one-size-fits-all type thing, but oftentimes your car may take five or six different kinds of bulbs in different places. The owner’s manual will gladly take all of the guesswork out of it for you by telling you what kind of bulbs you need for your headlights, taillights, turn signals, reverse lights, interior lights, and so on. It doesn’t just stop at bulbs, however. The kinds of replacement fuse you need, filter numbers, and even the kind of battery your key uses can all be listed in an owner’s manual. Handy, right?
Lastly, an owner’s manual has great information on safe driving habits for your car. This isn’t just about keeping both hands on the wheel or anything like that, but rather things like proper weight distribution in the cabin, proper towing habits, if towing is applicable to your vehicle, proper use of a four-wheel or all-wheel-drive system, again, if applicable, and proper use of your headlights.
