After all the discussion, I would like to change my suggestion to:

neutral  Johannes Gleim: The first idea was better. It's neither instruction, nor passive voice, as already explained by Björn.

  -> Thank you. Yes, I agree, thanks also to Björn's input.

agree  Björn Vrooman: As is the case with carmakers, some companies prefer (or may need) a more literal approach, so Heike has two options to choose from (also depending on context). Meets the "most helpful" criterion, IMO.
