Owner's manuals are sources of important information. Inevitably, they also contain their fair share of awkward wordings, required regulatory obfuscation, and plain ol' face-palming stupidity. What's the weirdest insrtruction or warning you've seen in your car's owner's manual?
The priceless excerpt above is from the owner's manual of a recent Ford Mustang. It makes a certain sort of intuitive sense, and doubtless one of Ford's cadre of corporate lawyers approved it, but the idea of unreliable adults... is this your friend who never pays you back? The hypochondriac in the office? A subliminal comment from your mom about being responsible? A J.D. Power award loser? We don't know, but it's a good chuckle in the midst of automotive officialdom.
