Where do I find a owner’s manual for my car?

1934 Dodge Truck Shop Manual CoverHelp, where can I get a replacement owners manual for my car?

When you buy a used car or if you lost the manual to your new car, there used to only a couple of solutions. You could go order one from the dealership and pay a bunch of money and wait weeks to get it or your could try to find a used one at a salvage yard or garage sale or the like.

Today that is not the case. If you want a replacement manual, you can still attack if old school style or you can move into more current times.

1) there are a few printers that produce most of the new car manuals and they have replacement manuals available as well.

http://www.techauthority.com is available online or by phone at (800) 890-4038
This is the website to order the printed versions of all Chrysler owners manuals

http://www.helminc.com/helm/welcome_select_oem.asp?Style=helm
Helm, Inc. offers paper manuals for Acura, Ford, all GM brands, Honda, Hyundai, Isuzu, Jaguar, Lincoln, Lexus, Mercury and Mitsubishi, Toyota and Scion — for a fee. 

2) Besides the printed versions, many manuals are available online. Here are several links that allow viewing, printing and even downloading manuals for free from online sources and in some cases they offer the ability to purchase some as well. It is amazing how many manuals there are access to in these links.

http://www.manualsforcars.com/     Manuals that are not available online, like VW, can be found here in many cases.

You can purchase paper manuals for Audi and VW at the links above as the mfg. does not make them available online at all at the time of this writing.

And if a used owner’s manual is OK, or you’re after the manual for an obscure model, eBay, Amazon or other sources for used merchandise are always worth a shot.

I am always glad to help if you are looking for new or pre-owned car. Please give me a call at 503-708-7269.

Great time to sell or trade in your car

With the reduced number of new cars sold year over year since the crash of 2008 (down from 16-18 million new car sales to just over 10 million) and not the disaster in Japan effecting primarily small and mid-sized cars coupled with a demand for the same cars in light of rising fuel cost, things have changed to say the least.

You might find your once humble little mode of transportation to be more valuable than you think.

Take a look at this article I found recently that echos this: http://autos.yahoo.com/news/high-used-car-prices-make-it-ideal-time-to-sell.html

Thank You,
