That's what I was thinking, but like you said - why? Selling them on ebay doesn't seem worth the trouble. Maybe it is. I don't know.

Most of the time, we seem to end up with a vehicle that we aren't familiar with. I kind of like driving something different each time, even with the hassle of not knowing how to work certain things. Like I said, it's a relatively minor annoyance. Just wondering why no manuals, ever. I don't think I've ever rented a car that had one.

The last time we rented, I asked the agent about it and they told me that they thought there'd be one in the car, but there wasn't.

We once rented a car, and had to phone the local Chevy dealer who put somebody on the phone to explain where latch is to open the trunk. Thanks to the miracle of intellectual property laws, it would be an actionable infringement if Chev put the trunk latch the same patented place Ford does.
