Reading the Owners Manual of your vehicle

    There have been more and more threads opened on this site in the past couple months asking what certain Scion-related parts/lights means. The one main thing I don't understand is why people do not take about 20 minutes when they first buy their car and read the OWNER'S MANUAL. That book is not just a glove box filler, it's there to help you UNDERSTAND your vehicle and all the basic parts it comes with.

    I understand that some questions may require a little more help than the manual can help with (such as problems after modifications, or driving issues that seem to crop up out of no where...)....but really....you need to READ AND UNDERSTAND the owner's manual. This site is to help the Scion/car community with questions and overall assistance with their vehicle. When threads keep getting opened up asking mundane questions that are EASILY found in the Owner's Manual people CHOOSE not to read, those threads become irritating to the site users.

    My recommendation for new owners and also old owners who never read their manual is.........READ YOUR OWNER'S MANUAL!!!
    Web come tuck me in read it to me.
    I read some of it. Skimmed over all of it. Then again, I already know whats in there and if I need to know or I have doubts or I forget, I know to go look in there.
    I sat down in the dealership before driving off looking over key points and to see how easy maintenance is. who doesn't like reading anyways?

    Save yourself some trouble and be knowledgeable.
    Web thank you it is annoying opening a thread and reading stupid crap that's within the first 5 pages of the manual

    Also any questions about induction weather it be about turbo or super chargers or even cai or sri or questions about susension mods SEARCH before you post
    Web has spoken! Web is good, Web is wise! Listen!
    Web's word is LAW. Go against Webster and you face a quick and silent ninja-style assassination.
    ehh.. he had to learn it some someplace..

    *cough*.. someone.... *cough*..

    Before the Internet, there were words printed on paper which was collected into a series of numbered pages called a book or manual.

    Scion has placed one of these tomes of knowledge into your vehicle so you can become enlightened.

    Read it and you'll level up.

    + 10,000 EXP
    Agreed, read mine twice

    no, he was probably talking about LiLee!!!! :oP

    but it is a great point, that is the first thing i did when i brought home my new car, 08 WRX 5-Door.
    What if you bought your tC used and the previous owner didn't leave it in there! I really don't want to buy one from Toyota... is there anywhere you can DL it online?
    How many threads have i answered with LOOK IN THE DAMN MANUAL lol. Im so taking credit for this thread.
    How effective is it?
