Should I have a User's Manual for my used Ford?

Ford Fix-its

If you're at all mechanically-inclined, keep a User's Manual for your used Ford car or truck in the trunk or glove compartment. They're remarkably easy to read, and a good safety measure in case you ever get stranded. Having a User's Manual also allows you to better understand what needs to be fixed on your vehicle rather than relying on the kindness of a strange mechanic.

You can download Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury User's Manuals for free at if you have a vehicle from 1996 to 2008. Earlier models' manuals can be located at
