Mine did. It explains the functions of the buttons and controls, how to change the dash displays, how to jack up the car, how to rotate tires, how to use the voice controls, how the seat belt detection system works, etc. Lots and lots of detailed answers to common and not so common questions. Even has an index in the back.

Mine was in the glove compartment in a clear plastic bag that said "Owners Manual". Does the car still come with one?

But I prefer searching the PDF's on my computer, using my application's "Find" capability to search for words.

MY 2013

Yes, actually mine came with 3 or 4 manuals, each for a specific item, car/charging device/infotainment/(and I forget the last)

Mine 2012 came with one owners manual that I never use. I keep the PDF files on my phone and PC - handy doing for doing the search feature.

Steverino,

Hmmmmm, do I detect a note of sarcasm here?

My Volt came with an owner's manual, but I find it easier to just ask questions here on the handy GM-Volt.com forum. Just kidding of course.

As we engineers are so fond of saying, "If all else fails, read the instructions."

BTW, do you date back to the old Steve Allen Show? Who was it that always came out and said by way of greeting:

"Hi Ho Steverino"?

Yes, I too detected a bit of the old "RTFM" in Steverino's post.

Darn! And here I thought I had neutered my post to the point of beige, hahaha. I decided to include all the links (and thanks to all those others posted here) so this is actually a reference source instead of me just being cranky. I'll ask Chris to post this in the Tips & Tricks FAQ area in case we don't already have something there. I suspect it will make a handy reference link for those posting questions answered in the manual. ;)

I'm like Noel Park, I use the PDF's except if I'm actually in the car. If find the PDF's are easier to search.

Yes, Steverino has its genesis from the Steve Allen show. One of my relatives liked to use it.

Hey Steverino, and don't forget for the truly wanna-be "know-it-alls" that want to have all possible information on the VOLT, here's an online reference absolutely overflowing with technical facts and a massive amount of details, including a hyperlinked TOC. :D

Manual funny. Checkout the My Chevrolet Android app. It has "owner's" manuals on it. I set it up for my 2013 Volt. But it does not have the Infotainment manual. After checking the "owner's" manual for something, it gives a brief description and then tells you to look at the "owner's" manual for more information, huh, what?! They have the full manual in a PDF, what would take to make only half a manual for the phone?? Seems like a lot of wasted work to give you something non-functional.

I got a good chuckle out of the Charger Cord manual. If I remember correctly it was only about 6 pages but then it was repeated into about 20 different languages that made it almost as thick as the english only Owners Manual.:D

Added to FAQ. Thanks Steverino for the work collecting the links together, and the PM alert to me to add this to the FAQ.

Which only took me over two months to get to. Thanks for your patience :)

I'll be reorganizing the FAQ (linked in my sig below) soon, because I want to post on a blog about it, so I need to make it more presentable ...
