    On my 2010, my driver's manual, etc., was provided within a cheap little vinyl pouch. What did everyone else get? Does anyone know where one could find a nicer pouch or booklet to store these materials in?

    I keep my registration and insurance card in that clear pocket on the driver's side sunvisor. That reminds me, I need to put my updated insurance card in there. Mine expired in April. Fortunately GA doesn't require you to carry an insurance card bc they can look it up from your tag.

    It seems to me when I was a kid my uncle from California had a clear pouch with springs around his steering column with papers in it. Does anyone else remember/know this? [​IMG]

    My manuals came in a CHEAP plastic pouch (that even had a hole in it) with the dealers name on it. After I looked it over I dumped it in a tubberware box with all the other manuals from everything I ever bought in my life. I keep the maintenance agreement and quick reference guide stashed in the glove box in the plastic bag that the back-up cam plug came in. The registration and insurance card are in the envelope that all the paper work came in. I should invest in a nice leather pouch that goes on the visor so I don't have to open the glove box when talking to the Cops.

    The ink on my Allstate insurance card actually came off and is stuck on that clear plastic due to the heat, so I guess people be careful if doing this.

    My 09 Tacoma came with a nice black leather type pouch that had Toyota embossed on the cover. It has a magnetic invisible clasp. Very nice and sized to hold the manuals.

    My wifes 10 Venza came with a red plastic piece of crap. Wasn't even the right size so it was just like a garbage pouch. I tried to find a part number for the nicer manual pouch but the dealerships could not order one for me. I didn't want to give her my nice one so I searched on ebay and found something similar to what my Tacoma came with. It was a set of 10 Highlander manuals and the black leather type pouch. I got it for $20 and the pouch is perfect. Now I just need to sell the Highlander manuals to recoup some of the $20 I laid out.
