the doors and liftgate.
• All doors can be programmed to unlock on
the first press of the UNLOCK button. Refer
to Programmable Features in this guide.
WARNING!
Leaving unattended children in a vehicle is dangerous for a number of reasons. A child
or others could be severely injured or killed. Children should be warned not to touch
the parking brake, brake pedal, or the shift lever. Do not leave the Key Fob in the
ignition. A child could operate power windows, other controls, or move the vehicle.
Remote Start
• Press the REMOTE START button 2 twice within five seconds. Pressing the REMOTE

x
• To drive the vehicle, press the UNLOCK button, insert the Key Fob in the ignition and
turn to the ON/RUN position.
• With remote start, the engine will only run for 15 minutes (timeout) unless the ignition
Key Fob is placed in the ON/RUN position.
• The vehicle must be started with the Key Fob after two consecutive timeouts.
WARNING!
• Do not start or run an engine in a closed garage or confined area. Exhaust gas
contains Carbon Monoxide (CO) which is odorless and colorless. Carbon Monoxide
is poisonous and can cause serious injury or death when inhaled.
• Keep Key Fob transmitters away from children. Operation of the Remote Start
System, windows, door locks or other controls could cause serious injury or death.

• Press the Key Fob LOCK button or the power door lock switch while the door is open.
To Disarm
• Press the Key Fob UNLOCK button and turn the ignition to the ON/RUN position.
SEAT BELT
• Be sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and using a seat belt properly.
WARNING!
In a collision, you and your passengers can suffer much greater injuries if you are not
properly buckled up. You can strike the interior of your vehicle or other passengers, or
you can be thrown out of the vehicle. Always be sure you and others in your vehicle
are buckled up properly.
9
GETTING STARTED
CHILD RESTRAINTS
• Children 12 years and under should ride properly buckled up in a rear seat, if
available. According to crash statistics, children are safer when properly restrained in
the rear seats rather than in the front.
• Every state in the United States and all Canadian provinces require that small children
ride in proper restraint systems. This is the law, and you can be prosecuted for
ignoring it.
WARNING!
In a collision, an unrestrained child, even a tiny baby, can become a projectile inside
the vehicle. The force required to hold even an infant on your lap could become so
great that you could not hold the child, no matter how strong you are. The child and
others could be severely injured or killed. Any child riding in your vehicle should be in
a proper restraint for the child's size.
Integrated Child Booster Seat
• The Integrated Child Booster Seat, located in each second-row passenger seat, is
designed for children weighing between 48 and 85 lbs (22 and 39 kg) and between
47 in (119 cm) and 57 in (145 cm) tall.
• To position a child into the Integrated Child Booster Seat follow these steps:
• Pull the release handle, located at the front of the seat cushion, forward to release.
Then, lift seat cushion up and push back to lock it in the booster seat position.
WARNING!
Failure to comply with the following conditions could result in serious injury or death:
• The swivel seat should be locked in the forward-facing position when using the
booster seat with the vehicle in motion.
• Be certain that the seat cushion is locked securely into position before using the
seat. An improperly latched seat cushion could cause serious injury.
• Place the child upright in the seat with their back firmly against the seatback.
• Grasp the latch plate and pull out the seat belt.
• Slide the latch plate up the webbing as far as necessary to allow the seat belt to go
around the child’s lap.
NOTE: The lap portion of the seat belt should be low on the hips and as snug as
possible.
• Once the seat belt is long enough to fit properly, insert the latch plate into the buckle
until you hear a “click.”
• To remove the slack from the lap belt, pull upward on the shoulder portion of the seat
belt and release by pushing the red button on the buckle.
10
GETTING STARTED
Installing The LATCH - Compatible Child Restraint System
• Each vehicle, except commercial cargo vehicles, is equipped with the child restraint
anchorage system called LATCH, which stands for Lower Anchors and Tether for
CHildren.
• Two LATCH child restraint anchorage systems are installed on all second-row seats and
in the center position on all third row fold-in-floor seats.
• Second-row seats also feature tether strap anchorages, located in the rear surface of
the seatback.
• In addition, all third row fold-in-floor seats are equipped with a child restraint tether
anchor at the center seating position.
Installing The Lower Attachments:
• The vehicle lower anchorages are round bars located at the rear of the seat cushion
where it meets the seatback.
• Loosen the adjusters on the lower child
restraint attachment straps to ease the
installation.
NOTE: It is recommended to loosen the top
tether strap and route it loosely prior to
securing the lower anchors so the top tether
strap is not trapped between the vehicle seat
and child restraint.
• Attach the lower child restraint attachment straps to the vehicle’s lower anchor bars.
Ensure that the lower attachment strap is firmly engaged and that the hook is secure.
• Tighten the lower attachment strap while firmly pushing the child restraint rearward
and downward into the vehicle seat. Remove all slack in the lower attachment straps.
11
GETTING STARTED
Installing The Top Tether Strap (With Either Lower Anchors Or Vehicle Seat
Belt):
• Route the top tether strap under the adjustable head restraint between the steel
posts.
• Provide enough slack for the tether strap to
reach the tether anchor located near the
bottom of the seat back.
• Clip tether hook to tether anchor. Ensure
that the hook is firmly engaged and secure.
• Remove all slack and tighten tether strap
according to child restraint manufacturer’s
instructions.
NOTE: The top tether strap is always to be
secured, regardless of if the child restraint is
installed with the lower anchors or the vehicle
seat belt.
WARNING!
Never place any child seat, booster seat, or infant carrier in the Swivel 'n Go seat while
it is in the rearward-facing position. The swivel seat should be locked in the forward
position when using any child seat, booster seat, or infant carriers, with the vehicle in
motion. Failure to do so could result in serious injury or even death.
WARNING!
An incorrectly anchored tether strap could lead to increased head motion and
possible injury to the child. Use only the anchor positions directly behind the child
seat to secure a child restraint top tether strap.
12
GETTING STARTED
Installing The Child Restraint Using The Vehicle Seat Belts
• To install a child restraint, first, pull enough of the seat belt webbing from the retractor
to route it through the belt path of the child restraint and slide the latch plate into the
buckle.
• Next, extract all the seat belt webbing out of the retractor and then allow the belt to
retract into the retractor. Finally, pull on any excess webbing to tighten the lap portion
around the child restraint. Any seat belt system will loosen with time, so check the
belt occasionally, and pull it tight if necessary.
• Once you have completed securing the child restraint with the seat belt, secure the
top tether strap.
WARNING!
Rearward-facing child seats must NEVER be used in the front seat of a vehicle with a
front passenger airbag. An airbag deployment could cause severe injury or death to
infants in this position.
FRONT SEATS
WARNING!
Adjusting a seat while the vehicle is moving is dangerous. The sudden movement of
the seat could cause you to lose control. The seat belt might not be properly adjusted,
and you could be severely injured or killed. Only adjust a seat while the vehicle is
parked.
Manual Seat Adjustment
Forward/Rearward
• Lift up on the adjusting bar located at the
front of the seat near the floor and release
at the desired position.
13
GETTING STARTED
Recliner
• Lift the recliner lever located on the
outboard side of the seat, lean back and
release at the desired position.
WARNING!
Do not ride with the seatback reclined so that the seat belt is no longer resting against
your chest. In a collision, you could slide under the seat belt and be severely injured
or killed. Use the recliner only when the vehicle is parked.
Manual Lumbar Adjust Lever
• Rotate the lumbar adjust lever downward to
increase the support or upward to decrease
the support.
Eight-Way Driver And Passenger Power Seat
• The recline switch, located on the outboard
side of the seat, controls seatback
adjustment.

forward/back, up/down, and tilt
adjustment.
14
GETTING STARTED

WARNING!
• Persons who are unable to feel pain to the skin because of advanced age, chronic
illness, diabetes, spinal cord injury, medication, alcohol use, exhaustion or other
physical conditions must exercise care when using the seat heater. It may cause
burns even at low temperatures, especially if used for long periods of time.
• Do not place anything on the seat that insulates against heat, such as a blanket or
cushion. This may cause the seat heater to overheat. Sitting in a seat that has been
overheated could cause serious burns due to the increased surface temperature of
the seat.
CAUTION!
Repeated overheating of the seat could damage the heating element and/or degrade
the material of the seat.

INSTRUMENT CLUSTER WARNING LIGHTS
- Electronic Stability Program (ESP) Indicator Light
• If this indicator light flashes during acceleration, apply as little throttle as possible.
While driving, ease up on the accelerator. Adapt your speed and driving to the
prevailing road conditions. To improve the vehicle's traction when starting off in deep
snow, sand or gravel, it may be desirable to switch the ESP system off.
- Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Light
• Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked monthly, when cold
and inflated to the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on
the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label. (If your vehicle has tires of a
different size than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure
label, you should determine the proper tire inflation pressure for those tires.)
• As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a Tire Pressure
Monitoring System (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or
more of your tires is significantly under-inflated. Accordingly, when the low tire
pressure telltale illuminates, you should stop and check your tires as soon as
possible, and inflate them to the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly
under-inflated tire causes the tire to overheat and can lead to tire failure.
Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the
vehicle’s handling and stopping ability.
• Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the
driver’s responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not
reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale.
• Your vehicle has also been equipped with a TPMS malfunction indicator to indicate
when the system is not operating properly. The TPMS malfunction indicator is
combined with the low tire pressure telltale. When the system detects a malfunction,
the telltale will flash for approximately one minute and then remain continuously
illuminated. This sequence will continue upon subsequent vehicle start-ups as long as
the malfunction exists.
52
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
• When the malfunction indicator is illuminated, the system may not be able to detect or
signal low tire pressure as intended. TPMS malfunctions may occur for a variety of reasons,
including the installation of replacement or alternate tires or wheels on the vehicle that
prevent the TPMS from functioning properly. Always check the TPMS malfunction telltale
after replacing one or more tires or wheels on your vehicle, to ensure that the replacement
or alternate tires and wheels allow the TPMS to continue to function properly.
CAUTION!
The TPMS has been optimized for the original equipment tires and wheels. TPMS
pressures and warning have been established for the tire size equipped on your
vehicle. Undesirable system operation or sensor damage may result when using
replacement equipment that is not of the same size, type, and/or style. Aftermarket
wheels can cause sensor damage. Do not use tire sealant from a can, or balance
beads if your vehicle is equipped with a TPMS, as damage to the sensors may result.
- Engine Temperature Warning Light
• This light warns of an overheated engine condition.
• If the light turns on or flashes continuously while driving, safely pull over and stop the
vehicle. If the A/C system is on, turn it off. Also, shift the transmission into NEUTRAL
and idle the vehicle. If the temperature reading does not return to normal, turn the
engine off immediately and call for service.
• We recommend that you do not operate the vehicle or engine damage will occur. Have
the vehicle serviced immediately.
WARNING!
A hot engine cooling system is dangerous. You or others could be badly burned by
steam or boiling coolant. You may want to call an authorized service center for service
if your vehicle overheats.
BRAKE - Brake Warning Light
• The Brake Warning light illuminates when there is either a system malfunction or the
parking brake is applied. If the light is on and the parking brake is not applied, it
indicates a possible brake hydraulic malfunction, brake booster problem or an
Anti-Lock Brake System problem.
• We recommend you drive to the nearest service center and have the vehicle serviced
immediately.
WARNING!
Driving a vehicle with the red brake light on is dangerous. Part of the brake system
may have failed. It will take longer to stop the vehicle. You could have an accident.
Have the vehicle checked immediately.
53
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
- Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL)
• Certain conditions, such as a loose or missing gas cap, poor fuel quality, etc., may
illuminate the MIL after engine start. The vehicle should be serviced if the light stays
on through several typical driving cycles. In most situations, the vehicle will drive
normally and not require towing.
• If the MIL flashes when the engine is running, serious conditions may exist that could
lead to immediate loss of power or severe catalytic converter damage. We recommend
you do not operate the vehicle. Have the vehicle serviced immediately.
- Electronic Stability Program (ESP) Indicator Light/Brake Assist
System (BAS) Warning Light
• If the ESP/BAS warning light comes on continuously with the engine running, a
malfunction has been detected.
• If this light remains on after several ignition cycles, and the vehicle has been driven
several miles (kilometers) at speeds greater than 30 mph (48 km/h), we recommend
you drive to the nearest service center and have the vehicle serviced immediately.
- Charging System Light
• This light shows the status of the electrical charging system. If the charging system
light remains on, it means that the vehicle is experiencing a problem with the charging
system.
• We recommend you do not continue driving if the charging system light is on. Have the
vehicle serviced immediately.
- Oil Pressure Warning Light
• This light indicates low engine oil pressure. If the light turns on while driving, stop the
vehicle and shut off the engine as soon as possible. A chime will sound for four
minutes when this light turns on.
• We recommend you do not operate the vehicle or engine damage will occur. Have the
vehicle serviced immediately.
- Anti-Lock Brake (ABS) Light
• This light monitors the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS).
• If the light is not on during starting, stays on, or turns on while driving, we recommend
you drive to the nearest service center and have the vehicle serviced immediately.
- Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) Light
• This light informs you of a problem with the Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) system.
• If a problem is detected, the light will come on while the engine is running. Cycle the
ignition when the vehicle has completely stopped and the shift lever is placed in the
PARK position; the light should turn off.
54
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
• If the light remains lit with the engine running, your vehicle will usually be drivable;
however, see an authorized service center immediately. If the light is flashing when
the engine is running, immediate service is required and you may experience reduced
performance, an elevated/rough idle or engine stall and your vehicle may require
towing.
- Airbag Warning Light
• If the light is not on during starting, stays on, or turns on while driving, have the
vehicle serviced by an authorized service center immediately.
Fuel Cap/Loose Gas Cap Message

“clicking” sound is heard.
• Press the odometer reset button to turn the message off.
• If the message continues to appear for more than three days after tightening the gas
cap, see your authorized service center.
Oil Change Indicator
Message
• If an “oil change” message (shown as CHAngE OIL) appears and a single chime
sounds, it is time for your next required oil change.
Resetting The Light After Servicing
• Turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN position (do not start engine).
• Fully depress the accelerator pedal three times within 10 seconds.
• Turn the ignition switch to the OFF/LOCK position.
IF YOUR ENGINE OVERHEATS
• In any of the following situations, you can reduce the potential for overheating by
taking the appropriate action.
• On the highways — slow down.
• In city traffic — while stopped, shift transmission into NEUTRAL, but do not increase
engine idle speed.
NOTE: There are steps that you can take to slow down an impending overheat
condition:
• If your air conditioner (A/C) is on, turn it off. The A/C system adds heat to the engine
cooling system and turning the A/C off can help remove this heat.
• You can also turn the Temperature Control to maximum heat, the Mode Control to floor
and the Fan Control to high. This allows the heater core to act as a supplement to the
radiator and aids in removing heat from the engine cooling system.
• If the temperature reading does not return to normal, turn the engine off immediately.
• We recommend that you do not operate the vehicle or engine damage will occur. Have
the vehicle serviced immediately.
55
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
CAUTION!
Driving with a hot cooling system could damage your vehicle. If the temperature gauge
reads HOT (H), pull over and stop the vehicle. Idle the vehicle with the air conditioner
turned off until the pointer drops back into the normal range. If the pointer remains on
HOT (H), and you hear continuous chimes, turn the engine off immediately and call for
service.
WARNING!
You or others can be badly burned by hot engine coolant (antifreeze) or steam from
your radiator. If you see or hear steam coming from under the hood, do not open the
hood until the radiator has had time to cool. Never try to open a cooling system
pressure cap when the radiator or coolant bottle is hot.
JACKING AND TIRE CHANGING
WARNING!
• Do not attempt to change a tire on the side of the vehicle close to moving traffic.
Pull far enough off the road to avoid being hit when operating the jack or changing
the wheel.
• Getting under a jacked-up vehicle is dangerous. The vehicle could slip off the jack
and fall on you. You could be crushed. Never get any part of your body under a
vehicle that is on a jack. If you need to get under a raised vehicle, take it to a
service center where it can be raised on a lift.
• The jack is designed to use as a tool for changing tires only. The jack should not be
used to lift the vehicle for service purposes. The vehicle should be jacked on a firm,
level surface only. Avoid ice or slippery areas.

cables and a battery in another vehicle or by using a portable battery booster pack.
• Jump-starting can be dangerous if done improperly so please follow the procedures in
this section carefully.
NOTE: When using a portable battery booster pack follow the manufacturer’s operating
instructions and precautions.
CAUTION!
Do not use a portable battery booster pack or any other booster source with a system
voltage greater than 12 Volts or damage to the battery, starter motor, alternator or
electrical system may occur.
WARNING!
When temperatures are below the freezing point, electrolyte in a discharged battery
may freeze. Do not attempt jump-starting because the battery could rupture or
explode and cause personal injury. Battery temperature must be brought above
freezing point before attempting a jump-start.
61
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
Preparations for Jump-Start
• The battery in your vehicle is located on the left side of the engine compartment.
WARNING!
• Take care to avoid the radiator cooling fan whenever the hood is raised. It can start
anytime the ignition switch is on. You can be injured by moving fan blades.
• Remove any metal jewelry, such as watch bands or bracelets, that might make an
inadvertent electrical contact. You could be severely injured.
• Batteries contain sulfuric acid that can burn your skin or eyes and generate
hydrogen gas which is flammable and explosive. Keep open flames or sparks away
from the battery.
• Set the parking brake, shift the automatic transmission into PARK and turn the ignition
to LOCK.
• Turn off the heater, radio, and all unnecessary electrical accessories.
• If using another vehicle to jump-start the battery, park the vehicle within the jumper
cables reach, set the parking brake and make sure the ignition is OFF.
WARNING!
Do not allow vehicles to touch each other as this could establish a ground connection
and personal injury could result.
Jump-Starting Procedure
WARNING!
Failure to follow this procedure could result in personal injury or property damage due
to battery explosion.
CAUTION!
Failure to follow these procedures could result in damage to the charging system of
the booster vehicle or the discharged vehicle.
• Connect the positive (+) end of the jumper cable to the positive (+) post of the
discharged vehicle.
• Connect the opposite end of the positive (+) jumper cable to the positive (+) post of
the booster battery.
• Connect the negative end (-) of the jumper cable to the negative (-) post of the booster
battery.
62
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
• Connect the opposite end of the negative (-) jumper cable to a good engine ground
(exposed metal part of the discharged vehicle's engine) away from the battery and
fuel injection system.
WARNING!
Do not connect the cable to the negative post (-) of the discharged battery. The
resulting electrical spark could cause the battery to explode and could result in
personal injury.
• Start the engine in the vehicle that has the booster battery, let the engine idle a few
minutes, and then start the engine in the vehicle with the discharged battery.
Once the engine is started, remove the jumper cables in the reverse sequence:
• Disconnect the negative (-) jumper cable from the negative (-) post of the vehicle with
the discharged battery.
• Disconnect the negative end (-) of the jumper cable from the negative (-) post of the
booster battery.
• Disconnect the opposite end of the positive (+) jumper cable from the positive (+)
post of the booster battery.
• Disconnect the positive (+) end of the jumper cable from the positive (+) post of the
discharged vehicle.
• If frequent jump-starting is required to start your vehicle you should have the battery
and charging system inspected at your authorized dealer.
CAUTION!
Accessories that can be plugged into the vehicle power outlets draw power from the
vehicle’s battery, even when not in use (i.e., cellular phones, etc.). Eventually, if
plugged in long enough, the vehicle’s battery will discharge sufficiently to degrade
battery life and/or prevent the engine from starting.

WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
FREEING A STUCK VEHICLE
• If your vehicle becomes stuck in mud, sand or snow, it can often be moved by a
rocking motion. Turn your steering wheel right and left to clear the area around the
front wheels. Then, move the shift lever back and forth between REVERSE and 1st gear.
Using minimal accelerator pedal pressure to maintain the rocking motion, without
spinning the wheels, is most effective.
NOTE: If your vehicle is equipped with Electronic Stability Program (ESP) or Traction
, turn the system off before attempting to “rock” the vehicle.
Control
WARNING!
Fast spinning tires can be dangerous. Forces generated by excessive wheel speeds
may cause tire damage or failure. A tire could explode and injure someone. Do not
spin your vehicle's wheels faster than 30 mph (48 km/h) when you are stuck. Do not
let anyone near a spinning wheel, no matter what the speed.
CAUTION!
• When “rocking” a stuck vehicle by moving between 1st and REVERSE, do not spin
the wheels faster than 15 mph (24 km/h), or drivetrain damage may result.
• Revving the engine or spinning the wheels too fast may lead to transmission
overheating and failure. It can also damage the tires. Do not spin the wheels above
30 mph (48 km/h) while in gear (no transmission shifting occurring).
EVENT DATA RECORDER (EDR)
• This vehicle is equipped with an event data recorder (EDR). The main purpose of an
EDR is to record, in certain crash or near crash-like situations, such as an air bag
deployment or hitting a road obstacle, data that will assist in understanding how a
vehicle’s systems performed. The EDR is designed to record data related to vehicle
dynamics and safety systems for a short period of time, typically 30 seconds or less.
The EDR in this vehicle is designed to record such data as:
• How various systems in your vehicle were operating;
• Whether or not the driver and passenger safety belts were buckled/fastened;
• How far (if at all) the driver was depressing the accelerator and/or brake pedal;
and,
• How fast the vehicle was traveling.
• These data can help provide a better understanding of the circumstances in which
crashes and injuries occur.
65
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
NOTE: EDR data are recorded by your vehicle only if a non-trivial crash situation occurs;
no data are recorded by the EDR under normal driving conditions and no personal data
(e.g. name, gender, age, and crash location) are recorded. However, other parties, such
as law enforcement, could combine the EDR data with the type of personally identifying
data routinely acquired during a crash investigation.
• To read data recorded by an EDR, special equipment is required, and access to the
vehicle or the EDR is needed. In addition to the vehicle manufacturer, other parties
such as law enforcement, that have the special equipment, can read the information if
they have access to the vehicle or the EDR.

MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
OPENING THE HOOD
• Pull the hood release lever located on the instrument panel, below the steering
column.
• Raise the hood and locate the safety catch lever, in the middle of the hood opening.
• Move the safety latch while lifting the hood at the same time.
• Insert the support rod into the slot on the hood.
• To close the hood, remove the support rod and place it in the retaining clip, then lower
the hood slowly.
WARNING!
Be sure the hood is fully latched before driving your vehicle. If the hood is not fully
latched, it could open when the vehicle is in motion and block your vision. Failure to
follow this warning could result in serious injury or death.
ADDING FUEL
Fuel Filler Cap (Gas Cap)
• The gas cap is located behind the fuel filler
door on the left side of the vehicle. If the
gas cap is lost or damaged, be sure the
replacement cap is for use with this vehicle.
• When the fuel nozzle “clicks” or shuts off,
the fuel tank is full.
• Tighten the gas cap until you hear a
“clicking” sound. This is an indication that
the gas cap is properly tightened. If not
properly tightened, the MIL (Malfunction
Indicator Light) may come on.
NOTE: The driver’s side sliding door cannot be opened while the fuel door is open.
CAUTION!
• Damage to the fuel system or emissions control system could result from using an
improper gas cap. A poorly fitting cap could let impurities into the fuel system and
may cause the MIL to turn on, due to fuel vapors escaping from the system.
• To avoid fuel spillage and overfilling, do not “top off” the fuel tank after filling.
67
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
WARNING!
• Never have any smoking materials lit in or near the vehicle when the gas cap is
removed or the tank filled.
• Never add fuel when the engine is running. This is in violation of most state and
federal fire regulations and will cause the MIL to turn on.
• A fire may result if gasoline is pumped into a portable container that is inside of a
vehicle. You could be burned. Always place gas containers on the ground while filling.

TIRE PRESSURES
• Check the inflation pressure of each tire, including the spare tire, at least monthly and
inflate to the recommended pressure for your vehicle.
• The tire pressures recommended for your vehicle are found on the “Tire and Loading
Information” label located on the driver’s side door opening.
NOTE: Refer to the Owner's Manual on the DVD for more information regarding tire
warnings and instructions.
77
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
WARNING!
Overloading of your tires is dangerous. Overloading can cause tire failure, affect
vehicle handling, and increase your stopping distance. Use tires of the recommended
load capacity for your vehicle. Never overload them.
WARNING!
Improperly inflated tires are dangerous and can cause accidents. Under-inflation is
the leading cause of tire failure and may result in severe cracking, component
separation, or “blow out”. Over-inflation reduces a tire’s ability to cushion shock.
Objects on the road and chuck holes can cause damage that results in tire failure.
Unequal tire pressures can cause steering problems. You could lose control of your
vehicle. Over-inflated or under-inflated tires can affect vehicle handling and can fail
suddenly, resulting in loss of vehicle control.
WHEEL AND WHEEL TRIM CARE
• All wheels and wheel trim, especially aluminum and chrome plated wheels, should be
cleaned regularly with a mild soap and water to prevent corrosion.
• To remove heavy soil and/or excessive brake dust, use MOPAR® Wheel Cleaner or
equivalent or select a non-abrasive, non-acidic cleaner.
CAUTION!
Do not use scouring pads, steel wool, a bristle brush, or metal polishes. Do not use
oven cleaner. These products may damage the wheel's protective finish. Avoid
automatic car washes that use acidic solutions or harsh brushes that may damage the
wheel's protective finish. Only MOPAR® Wheel Cleaner or equivalent is recommended.

TIRE WARRANTY
Tire Limited Warranty And
Adjustment Policy
• If you believe that your vehicle has a
defect that could cause a crash or
cause injury or death, you should
immediately inform the National
Highway Traffic Safety Administration
(NHTSA) in addition to notifying the
manufacturer.
• When a tire is removed from service
due to a covered warranty condition
under a tire manufacturer’s “Limited
Warranty Program”, you may be
eligible for a free tire replacement or a
comparable new tire on a “prorated
basis”.
• If NHTSA receives similar complaints,
it may open an investigation, and if it
finds that a safety defect exists in a
group of vehicles, it may order a recall
and remedy campaign. However,
NHTSA cannot become involved in
individual problems between you,
your authorized dealer, and the
manufacturer.
• Certain conditions, such as irregular
wear or tire damage due to road
hazards, collision, improper inflation,
intentional alteration, and misuse,
are excluded from the Limited
Warranty Program. The Limited
Warranty Program expires when your
tires either wear to a specified tread
depth, and/or after a period of time
from the date of purchase, as stated
in the Tire Warranty on the DVD.
• To contact NHTSA, you may either call
the Auto Safety Hotline toll free at
1–888–327–4236 (TTY: 1–800–424–
9153), or go to http://
www.safercar.gov; or write to:

• Tires should be inspected regularly
by a qualified technician for signs
of damage, such as punctures,
impacts, under-inflation or
overloading.
• Progressive air loss may result from
punctures, cuts, curbing, impacts
or partial bead unseating.
Some fitment causes for air loss are:
• Incomplete bead seating.
• Bead tearing caused by a machine
tool due to insufficient lubrication
or improper adjustment.
• Leaking valve core or rubber valve
components (these should be
replaced when problems are
detected and whenever tires are
replaced).
• Tire failure due to improper repairs.
• See Rubber Manufacturer's
Association (RMA) established
repair procedures at www.rma.org
for information on proper repair
procedures. Never perform a
temporary repair or use an inner
tube as a substitute for a proper
repair. Only qualified persons
should repair tires.
• Explosion of tire/rim assembly due
to improper mounting.
• Only specially trained persons
should mount tires.
• Failure to mount tires on approved
rims.
• Failure to deflate single or dual
assemblies completely before
demounting.
WARNING!
NOTE: Refer to the Owner's Manual on
the DVD for complete warning
information that could prevent
accidents, injuries and even deaths.
WARNING!
Death, serious injury and/or property
damage may result from:
• Tire failure due to impact damage
and/or improper maintenance.

Using Lift Kits
WARNING!
• Use of lift kits with some vehicle/tire
combinations can cause instability or
loss of control. When changing tire
sizes, always consult an installer for
optimum rim width and carefully
check vehicle/tire clearances.
Tires and the spare tire should be
replaced after six years, regardless of
the remaining tread. Failure to follow
this warning can result in sudden tire
failure. You could lose control and
have an accident resulting in serious
injury or death.
Check Your Tires For Damage
• Frequent (at least monthly) inspection
of your tires for signs of damage,
uneven tread wear and their general
condition is important for safety.
Impacts, penetrations, cracks, knots,
bulges or air loss always require tire
removal and expert inspection.
• Keep dismounted tires in a cool, dry
place with as little exposure to the
light as possible.
• Protect tires from contact with oil,
grease, and gasoline.
Tire Service Life
NOTE: All tire warranties are made by
the tire manufacturer. Tires are not
covered under your Chrysler New Vehicle
Limited Warranty.
• The service life of a tire is dependent
upon varying factors including, but
not limited to, your driving style, tire
pressure and distance driven.
