Thanks! I'll check it out. I found the DVD to be replicating much of the information in a somewhat disorganized manner, and am hoping that the printed owner's manuals will have a more logical layout. Since your .pdf version is probably searchible, that may solve the challenge of the lack of organization of the information.

In any event I would still need to print it out for it to do me any good, and then it would be on 8.5" x 11" sheets, with page breaks wherever it works out. When I plop down $21K for a car, I expect a decent quality printed manual of a convenient size to carry in the car.

It has been taking hours to go through the manual, which helps during the wait for my Fiat to be delivered. A lot of features compared to the car it is replacing at only 1/2 the cost.

Bless you, BLESS you, BLESS YOU!!! I've been wanting to see one of these for a couple of weeks or more. The dealer had the demo manual AT HOME, so they could learn from it. Even the local prospective Fiat dealer, who opens in Mid April, has received no materials from Fiat USA.

FIAT is NOT handling this introduction well, at all. And I'm talking about the regular cars and dealers.

Looking forward as #1 on the waiting list here in Central Florida.

I love owners manuals and love to collect them. The DVD thing is something new from Chrysler, and is touted as a way to save trees, the environment, etc., etc. They got a lot of publicity for it. Of course, it also saves them $$.

This and the lack of a standard spare are, I guess, what new cars are coming to. Can't say I like it.

Apparently, there is a 3rd edition pdf manual that has been created for cars produced after 3/21/11... It contains real pictures in color. It wouls be interesting to see what the improvements are... I heard that they did correct the towing issues using dollies and explain the sport mode button in detail.

Regards,

Arman
