Owners Manuals

Hi.

I am new so this might not be in the 'right' place, but I tried :)

I just bought an '02 Civic LX (certified) from a local honda dealership. They didn't give us an owner's manual with the car and don't seem to be very interested in providing one, even though they have said they will 'try and find one'. It is obvious to me that they don't intend to.

Isn't it normal that they would provide one? It doesn't seem right that we should go out and drop $30-40 on one ourselves...?

Thanks

  • Yes, they should give you one. Don't let them forget, it's certified, still under some kind of warrenty. Talk to the Service Manager. Maybe he can help
  • Salesman are your friend until you make the purchase. After the purchase they will avoid you and they do not need anything from you after they have your money.

    For $70.00 you can get a Service manual for your Civic. Even if you are not mechanically oriented you can follow the work that the mechanics will be doing to your car in the future.
    This will give you a guide to their work and make you a smarter when dealing with cars.
    So if you are going to spend the money on a manual try the service manual instead. By the way, it is too big for the glove box.
  • Is there a site where an owner can download operations and or maintenance manuals for a 1993 Nissan Maxima? Thanks
  • I just bought a 1995 Toyota Corolla about a month ago and have been searching the internet for an owner's manual to download like you. However, I haven't been able to find one either. I've read other comments on forums which advise to call the Toyota company and request one. I'm going to try to find a phone number and do this. Have you tried this?
  • I actually found several manuals on e-bay but was hoping to get one free, so I found Toyota's phone number on-line and called them. They asked for my VIN # and mailed me an owner's manual free of charge within 7 days of my call. I was very impressed! Thanks anyway.

  • Hi
    I have just bought an old Isuzu trooper (1987). Due to its age it didn't have an owners manual. Does any one know what it means when the t-belt light comes on in the display. The vehicle has just done 180,000 miles

    Thanks

    Alan

    I don't think so....

    I've never found a link to a downloadable Honda Owner's Manual at Owner Link. I just checked. Still not there.
  • The link wasn't 100% acurate, but I found what he was referring to, after setting up an account and entering my vin, I got access to the owner's manual.

    You can try the Honda Civic Owners: Problems & Solutions discussion too; someone in there may have a suggestion about aftermarket repair manuals (Haines, etc.).

  • I am new, so pls forgive me if this is not the right place to post.

    I don't *have* an owner's manual for my 2005 Civic, and need to pursue this with the broker who sold me the car.

    I purchased seat covers for the car from the dealer, and they can't tell me how to get the back one to fit! There is apparently a bolt underneath that "pops" out to remove the back seat, but I have not been able to feel it. The dealer I bought the car from via the broker tells me they can't do anything "mechanical". The dealer I take my car to to be serviced claims *they* don't do this sort of thing! Please help with any suggestions of where to look for information or how to fit the seat cover on. I am SOooooo frustrated!

    Try eBay for an Owner's Manual if you choose not to buy one from a Honda dealer.

    Be very cautious about installing seat covers on front seats that have side airbags. They must not prevent the airbags from deploying in an emergency.
