That’s not a manual. THATS a manual. All 672 pages. Any claim I might have made to being “green” with my Insight has been offset by killing the tree it took to print this thing. :crying:

You need to get out of the 80’s!
Anything over 100 pages I find the online pdf is easier, lighter, more portable in my Dropbox and easily searchable.
But to each their own, sorry tree 😂

You’re absolutely right! My bad. I got carried away with my zealous pursuit of everything Insight. :sad:

The other benefit is your pdf copy can always be current.
My last Honda manual was revised twice in the first 6 months, but easy to download and update.
The paper copy may never get reprinted with the enhancements and corrections.
I see the online version is 675 pages, so you may already be missing some

We may save a whole forest of trees in enough people convert!

Didn't I read that if you contact Honda in the first 6months, they will send you a printed guide?!

Consider me old-fashioned...while I like the search feature for PDFs, I prefer a hard copy I can have in the glove compartment or curl up with at night!

At least in the old days, Honda's manuals were well organized with a good table of contents, good index, and good side edge darkening for finding sections. Add in a couple of post-its and you're all set!

P.S. We do buy only 100% recycled paper for our printers... so we do have some green street cred!

I requested it from the Honda owners webite. Got a Navigation Guide too. They offer a free one to new owners. In retrospect the pdf is easier to search and I should have stuck with that instead.
