Onboard help features are a great addition to the 2014 Mini Cooper. But they can't replace an actual owner's manual.

    I don't see how "this truth is universally acknowledged". People can be so demanding and so contradictory. We want to be green and when companies try to be green we complain that we don't have a 200 page manual to our electric car. Personally Am fine with referencing a PDF. Car manuals aren't typically read cover to cover IMO, they are referenced as needed. Interactive help is even better.

    Does the Mini have voice recognition of any kind? If you could use voice recognition to ask"How do I ____", that would be VERY helpful. We've all flipped through the Owner's Encyclopedia more than enough times. If you could just ask the car itself how to do a certain thing, or where to find a feature, etc, that would be very cool indeed.

    The car comes with a printed manual too. Didn't yours?
