I've just read the instruction manual for the 2017 Mercedes E-Class. It's an epic document, over 400 pages, and I'm glad I did. I'd never read a car manual before. I learned so much, I read it twice. Tonight, I might even read it again. Why? Because as I write the follow up to the most controversial article of my career, I want to make sure I get everything right. Now, as I sit down to go over it a third time, I actually have more questions than when I started. There's...a lot going on here.

What I've learned is the subject of my next big article, but I'm curious...what's the craziest thing you've ever read in a car's instruction manual?
