I have what will strike some of you as an odd query. Standard with all of the vehicles—Mazda Miata, Mazda5, Ford Focus, others—I’ve had in recent years is a case to hold the owner’s manual, service records and other materials (similar to the one pictured below). Typically, these cases are made of nylon or faux leather. However, my Canadian edition 2019 Mazda3 hatch came without any kind of cover. I know that the Mazda3 is marketed internationally and that various markets receive differently equipped iterations of the car. Have any of you received your owner’s manual with some sort of case? And yes, I know that there are various digital editions of the manual available online and that the world is moving away from paper. It just strikes me as odd that Mazda’s move upscale would abandon something as basic as a case for the owner’s manual.

Thanks to each of you who commented. I now realize that Mazda Canada decided that this is an item that they and owners of Mazda3s can do without. Nevertheless, it is fascinating that various markets receive such very differently equipped top-end vehicles. For example, UK Mazda3s appear to come with CD players, and our neighbours to the south of us in the U.S. get front end sensors but no heated steering wheel while we Canadians get a warm steering wheel but no front end sensors. Go figure. I know, all first world problems. :)
