Electronic Owners Manual
An electronic searchable Owners Manual that has Features and Functions for the specific VIN. This personalized Owners Manual would reduce end user confusion that is caused by current paper manuals that list ALL possible options for the car type. By being electronic and searchable the end user should be able to find what they are looking for more direct than the process of searching a paper manual. This would also reduce the cost of providing the paper manuals. One way to do this is by setting up the manual as a MS Word Master document with Features and functions from the car's original window sticker showing the standard and optional features that are in that vehicle (VIN). Then save the document as a PDF file, so that it prints as expected, with plain text, so that the document is searchable.

I agree 100%. I have my cell phone owner's manual on my desktop and that is so much more convenient than leafing through a paper copy. Having the owner's manual available online would be a significant improvement in the owner experience.
