Is it possible to get a hardcopy of this book? If so where? at Ford dealerships?

My respect for Ford as an automobile company grew 100X as they have not used the informative book as thier marketing tool. i wish they had realeased a hardcopy of it too and sent it to exsiting customers via dealers.

Sensible driving tends to be generic, so the book it pretty generic in that sense. However, there are some India specific instances in the book a well

Great move by Ford. This would help the first time buyers to understand their cars, which have been purchased by hard earned money.

For a newbie like me, this initiative is welcomed with all due respect.

I think this book should be read by all car owners considering majority of people do buy cars but very few take the initiative to take care of them whole heartedly. I certainly appreciate this move by Ford motor company.

This seems to be very interesting and good book. I have tried downloading 5 times but the last time it failed after 75%. I have tried using DAP also but of no use.

I am trying to download it again now. Hope it this time I will be successfull.

I think this will be a good read even for many of us who have been driving for quite some time - never too late to learn a thing or 2, more so when it comes from an auto giant. I am downloading it as I write this.

Thanks for bumping this thread , even I ended up downloading it using some correct keywords on google.

This is from Ford -South africa link, but the pdf looks the same but is only 10mb.
Don't know if this is an exact copy, but first 3 pages and table of contents look the same.
