Default Owners Manual Holder

Can someone tell me where I might be able to purchase a nice organizer that
would hold the manuals that came with my new Accord? I need at least 4
sleeves. I got spoiled when I drove Volvos, and I should have kept the
organizer that came with my last Volvo, Honda doesn't give you anything.

I use a file folder in my file cabinet for organizing my manuals. Most of
the time my reading glasses are home, so to read them I have to be home
{;^)

The plastic ones with two pockets are available for free at ANY (even
non-Honda) dealership. They have the dealer's name all over them, for
advertising purposes, and they want you to think of them when you're
looking in the manual. :-)

(as brian alluded) It depends whether you're the kind of person who
wants to keep the manual in the car, or in the house. I keep the manual
at home, but my radio code is written inside the fusebox covers so I'm
covered if I ever have to disconnect the power when I'm in another city.
Other important contact info is in my Palm device, and I've pretty much
memorized the contents of the manual.

Shouldn't the owner's manual be in the car where things that you need to
read about happen? Buy a cheap pair of reading glasses and store them with
the manual.

How about writing the radio code inside the manual cover?

I could see that as being the case if I only looked at the Owners Manual
when something went wrong with the vehicle. I read the Owners Manual for the
vehicle after I come home from purchasing it, then nothing is a surprise.
Besides, Glove Compartments were named that, because of what they are
supposed to have in them {;^)

It's not that hard to reach the fuse box cover from the vehicle.

Back in the days, maybe. Not anymore.

I also reads the owner's manual cover to cover as soon as I get it but then
it goes into the "glove" compartment where it's always handy.

True enough. It's seldom that I wear gloves.

I find it just as handy to have it at home. To each their own.
