Hello.

I would like to say that a label with some information about a vehicle is placed somewhere in such a way that it is possible for one to access it in order to read it.

A label with dimensions 297 x 210 mm is also placed at the point of sale of vehicles in a visible place next to each vehicle offered for sale, in such a way that it can let you .................................... with its contents.


1. familiarize yourself
2. acquaint yourself
3. get acquainted

I think that all of the three expressions can be used in the sentence above. Are #2 and #3 more formal than #1?

Actually I'm not sure if #3 sounds good.

Thank you.

    (1) is the version I've actually seen used in this sort of context. The versions with "acquaint" come across to me as slightly old-fashioned, although other people may disagree.

    I'm wondering if this ending is better: "in such a way that one can read its contents."
    Is one supposed to familiarize themselves with the text in a medication guide or are they just supposed to read it?
