Thanks, Yehoshua.

Which brings up another question: who reviewed the manual?
Technical or publications manager? Or no one?

I think that there are a lot of technical writers who assume that no one
is ever going to read their work. Apparently whoever wrote this manual was
wrong.

Subject: Owner's Manual mistake


I just read something scary: an owner's manual mistake led to a recall of
Scions and Subarus.

The car is OK, but the owner's manual supposedly describes the airbag
operation improperly, although details are not included.

Does anyone know more about how it happened?
