Missing info in user manuals
THis is not specific to this car....but user manuals stink. THink about wheels: wheel bolt circle , offset, center hole size..: nowhere to be found. Wheel nut size and thread (12mm x 1.5) ...nowhere. Thanks to the internet, easy to find out now but most of us will look for spare rims for winter tires, or want to replace a lost nut...this is relevant info that should be part of the user manual...but they spend HUNDREDS of pages about safety remarks to ensure no one will sue the company....anyway.... Thanks to this site, I was able to change the "press once or twice" door unlock option....nowhere to be found in the manual (except for the hi tech instrument panel that I so do not have) .....
SO...forget my frustration...and glad these forums exist...
Bought in Oct 2016 at 55000km, now (Apr 2019) at 73000 km. I like cars...
