Driving And Alcohol
Drunken driving is one of the most frequent causes of accidents.
Your driving ability can be seriously impaired with blood alcohol levels far below the
legal minimum. If you are drinking, don’t drive. Ride with a designated non-drinking
driver, call a cab, a friend, or use public transportation.
WARNING!
Driving after drinking can lead to an accident. Your perceptions are less sharp,
your reflexes are slower, and your judgment is impaired when you have been
drinking. Never drink and then drive.

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
• 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 badly injured. Any child riding in your vehicle
should be in a proper restraint for the child’s size.
• 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.
Installing The LATCH - Compatible Child Restraint System
• Your vehicle’s second row passenger seats are equipped with the child restraint
anchorage system called LATCH, which stands for Lower Anchors and Tether for
CHildren.
• The two rear seating positions have lower anchorages that are capable of
accommodating LATCH-compatible child seats having flexible, webbing mounted
lower attachments or fixed lower attachments.
• The rear seat lower anchorages are round
bars, located at the rear of the seat
cushion where it meets the seatback. They
are just visible when you lean into the rear
seat to install the child restraint. You will
easily feel them if you run your finger
along the intersection of the seatback and
seat cushion surfaces.
• The top tether strap anchorages are located in the trunk behind the rear seatback.
The access ports to the top tether anchorages are directly behind the seat
headrests under a plastic cover.
• Loosen the adjusters on the lower straps and tether straps so that you can attach
the hook or connector to the lower and tether anchorages more easily.
• Attach the lower hooks or connectors over the top of the seat cover material.
• If lowered, raise the convertible top.
NOTE: The convertible top must be in the UP position to access the tether anchor.
10
GETTING STARTED
• Open the access port cover behind the seat where you are placing the child
restraint.
• Push the tether strap and hook through
the access port and down into the trunk.
NOTE: Route the tether strap to provide
the most direct path from the child seat to
the anchor.
• From inside the trunk, open the access
cover on the carpet covering the back of
the seat and attach the tether strap hook
to the anchor.
• Tighten all three straps as you push the
child restraint rearward and downward into
the seat.
WARNING!
• Improper installation of a child restraint to the LATCH anchorages can lead to
failure of an infant or child restraint. The child could be badly injured or killed.
Follow the manufacturer’s directions exactly when installing an infant or child
restraint.
• 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.
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.
• If lowered, raise the convertible top.
11
GETTING STARTED
NOTE: The convertible top must be in the UP position to access the tether anchor.
• Open the access port cover behind the seat where you are placing the child
restraint. The access ports to the top tether anchorages are directly behind the
seat headrests under a plastic cover.
• Push the tether strap and hook through the access port and down into the trunk.
NOTE: Route the tether strap to provide the most direct path from the child seat to
the anchor.
• From inside the trunk, open the access cover on the carpet covering the back of the
seat and attach the tether strap hook to the anchor.
• Attach the tether strap hook of the child restraint to the anchor and remove slack
in the tether strap according to the child restraint manufacturer’s instructions.
FRONT SEATS
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
seriously or even fatally injured. Use the recliner only when the vehicle is parked.
12
GETTING STARTED
Lumbar Support
• The lumbar control lever is on the inboard
side of the seatback. Rotate the lumbar
lever downward to increase the lumbar
support or upward to decrease the lumbar
support as desired.
Power Seat
• The power seat switch, located on the
outboard side of the seat near the floor,
controls forward/back, up/down, and tilt
adjustment.
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 injured. Only adjust a seat while the vehicle is parked.
CAUTION!
DO NOT place any article under a power seat or impede its ability to move as it
may cause damage to the seat controls. Seat travel may become limited if
movement is stopped by an obstruction in the seat’s path.
13
GETTING STARTED
Heated Seats
• The controls for the front heated seats are
located in the center console below the
climate controls.
• Press the switch once to select High-level
heating. Press the switch a second time to
select Low-level heating. Press the switch a
third time to shut the heating elements
Off.
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.
Easy Entry Lever
• The Easy Entry lever is located on the
upper seat belt anchor cover.
• On manual passenger seats, pulling the
lever upward will move the seat and
seatback forward. When returning the seat
to its normal position, the memory feature
restores the seat position and seatback
recline position to their current settings.
• On power seats, pulling the lever upward
will move the seatback forward.

GETTING STARTED
TILT / TELESCOPING STEERING COLUMN
• The tilt/telescoping control lever is located
below the steering wheel at the end of the
steering column.

• To tilt the steering column, move the
steering wheel upward or downward as
desired. To lengthen or shorten the
steering column, pull the steering wheel
outward or push it inward as desired.
• Pull upward on the lever to lock the column firmly in place.
WARNING!
Do not adjust the steering wheel while driving. The tilt/telescoping adjustment

INSTRUMENT CLUSTER WARNING LIGHTS
- Electronic Stability Control (ESC) Malfunction Indicator
Light
• If the “ESC Malfunction Indicator Light” comes on continuously with the engine
running, a malfunction has been detected in the ESC system. 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 as soon as possible to have the problem diagnosed and
corrected.
• The “ESC Malfunction Indicator Light” starts to flash as soon as the tires lose
traction and the ESC system becomes active. If the light begins to flash during
acceleration, ease up on the accelerator and apply as little throttle as possible. Be
sure to adapt your speed and driving to the prevailing road conditions. The light
also flashes when TCS is active. To improve the vehicle’s traction when starting off
in deep snow, sand or gravel, it may be desirable to switch the ESC system to
switch.
Partial Off mode by momentarily pressing the ESC Off
- Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Light
• A Tire Pressure Monitoring Light and a “low tire” message will display in your
instrument cluster along with an audible chime if one or more of your vehicle’s four
road tires are significantly under-inflated.
• Check the inflation pressure of each tire 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. The
TPMS light should not be used as a tire pressure gauge when adjusting your tire
pressure.
• It is recommended that you check the tire pressure in the morning when tires are
cool; inflate each tire to the recommended pressure for your vehicle. The light will
turn off after your vehicle’s tire pressures are properly inflated and the pressure
has been recognized. The vehicle may need to be driven for up to 20 minutes
above 15 mph (25 km/h) before the light will turn off.
40
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
• Temperature changes can affect tire pressure, causing the TPMS light to turn on.
Tire pressures will also increase as the vehicle is driven – this is normal and you
should not adjust for this increased pressure.
• Driving on under-inflated tires reduces your vehicle’s fuel efficiency and tire tread
life. If a spare tire is in use on the vehicle, the TPMS light may turn on.
- 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.
• 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 dealership 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.
41
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 as soon as
possible if this occurs.
- 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 system serviced
as soon as possible.
- 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 key when the vehicle has completely stopped and the shift lever is
placed in the PARK position; the light should turn off.
• If the light remains lit with the engine running, your vehicle will usually be drivable;
however, see an authorized dealer for service as soon as possible. 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.
42
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
- Transmission Temperature Warning Light
• This light indicates that there is excessive transmission fluid temperature that
might occur with severe usage such as trailer towing. If this light turns on, stop the
vehicle and run the engine at idle, with the transmission in NEUTRAL, until the light
turns off. Once the light turns off, you may continue to drive normally.
- Airbag Warning Light
• 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 system serviced
as soon as possible.
Fuel Cap/Loose Gas Cap Message
• If a “gas cap” message (shown as gASCAP) appears, tighten the gas cap until a
“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 dealer.
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.
43
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
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.
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.
Engine Oil Overheating — 2.4L Gas
• On hot days the engine oil temperature may become too hot during sustained
high-speed driving or if towing a trailer up long grades. If this happens, a HOTOIL
message will flash in the odometer and the vehicle speed will be reduced to
48 mph (77 km/h) maximum until the engine oil temperature is reduced.
NOTE: Although the maximum vehicle speed is reduced to 48 mph (77 km/h), you
may reduce vehicle speed further as needed. Once the engine oil temperature is
reduced, you may continue to drive normally.

• Block both the front and rear of the wheel
diagonally opposite of the jacking position.
For example, if changing the right front
tire, block the left rear wheel.
NOTE: Passengers should not remain in the
vehicle when the vehicle is being jacked.
Jacking And Tire Changing Instructions
WARNING!
Carefully follow these tire changing procedures to help prevent personal injury or
damage to your vehicle: Always park on a firm, level surface as far from the edge
of the roadway as possible before raising the vehicle.
• Remove the scissors jack and lug wrench from the spare wheel as an assembly.
Turn the jack screw to the left to loosen the lug wrench, and remove the wrench
from the jack assembly.
NOTE: The jack handle attaches to the side of the jack with two attachment points.
When the jack is partially expanded, the tension between the two attachment points
holds the jack handle in place.
• Loosen (but do not remove) the wheel lug nuts by turning them to the left one turn
while the wheel is still on the ground.
• Assemble the jack and jacking tools. Connect the jack handle driver to the
extension, then to the lug wrench.
47
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
• Place the jack underneath the lift area that is closest to the flat tire. Turn the jack
screw clockwise to firmly engage the jack saddle with the lift area of the sill flange.
• Raise the vehicle by turning the jack screw clockwise. Raise the vehicle only until
the tire just clears the surface and enough clearance is obtained to install the spare
tire.
WARNING!
Raising the vehicle higher than necessary can make the vehicle less stable and
cause an accident. It could slip off the jack and hurt someone near it. Raise the
vehicle only enough to remove the tire.
• Remove the lug nuts, wheel cover (if equipped) and wheel.
• Position the spare wheel/tire on the vehicle and install the lug nuts with the
cone-shaped end toward the wheel. Do NOT attempt to install a center cap or wheel
cover on the compact spare. Lightly tighten the lug nuts clockwise. To avoid the
risk of forcing the vehicle off the jack, do not tighten the nuts fully until the vehicle
has been lowered.
• Lower the vehicle by turning the jack screw to the left, and remove the jack and
wheel blocks.
48
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
• Finish tightening the lug nuts. Push down on the wrench while tightening for
increased leverage. Alternate nuts until each one has been tightened twice. The
correct wheel nut tightness is 100 ft lbs (135 N•m). If in doubt about the correct
tightness, have them checked with a torque wrench by your authorized dealer or at
a service station.
WARNING!
A loose tire or jack, thrown forward in a collision or hard stop, could endanger the
occupants of the vehicle. Always stow the jack parts and the spare tire in the
places provided.
• Secure the tire, jack and tools in their proper locations.
49
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
JUMP-STARTING
• If your vehicle has a discharged battery it can be jump-started using a set of
jumper 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 the freezing point before attempting a jump-start.
50
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
Preparations for Jump-Start
• The battery in your vehicle is located between the left front headlight assembly
and the left front wheel splash shield. To allow jump-starting there are remote
battery posts 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 seriously 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.
• Remove the protective cover over the remote positive (+) battery post. To remove
the cover, press the locking tab and pull upward on the cover.
• If using a 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!
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 remote positive (+) post of
the discharged vehicle.
• Connect the opposite end of the positive (+) jumper cable to the positive (+) post
of the booster battery.
51
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
• Connect the negative end (-) of the jumper cable to the negative (-) post of the
booster battery.
• Connect the opposite end of the negative (-) jumper cable to the remote negative
(-) post of the vehicle with the discharged battery.
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 remote 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 remote positive (+)
post of the discharged vehicle.
• Reinstall the protective cover over the remote positive (+) battery 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
DRIVE. Using minimal accelerator pedal pressure to maintain the rocking motion,
without spinning the wheels, is most effective.
NOTE: To improve the vehicle’s traction when starting off in deep snow, sand or
gravel, it may be desirable to switch the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) to “Partial
switch. For further information
Off” mode by momentarily pressing the ESC Off
on ESC, refer to the Owner’s Manual on the DVD.
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).
54
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
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.
• This data can help provide a better understanding of the circumstances in which a
crash and injuries occur. NOTE: EDR data is recorded by your vehicle only if a
non-trivial crash situation occurs; no data is recorded by the EDR under normal
driving conditions and no personal data (e.g., name, gender, age, and crash
location) is 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.
55
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
OPENING THE HOOD
• Pull the release lever located below the instrument panel and in front of the
driver’s door.
• Raise the hood and locate the safety latch, 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.

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 on the life of
tires.
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.

MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
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 wheels protective finish. Avoid
automatic car washes that use acidic solutions or harsh brushes that may damage
the wheels protective finish. Only MOPAR® Wheel Cleaner or equivalent is
recommended.

• Tires should be inspected
regularly by a qualified technician
for signs of damage, such as
punctures, impacts, underinflation 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!

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.
NOTE: All tire warranties are made by
the tire manufacturer. Tires are not
covered under your Chrysler New
Vehicle Limited Warranty.
Tire Service Life
• The service life of a tire is dependent
upon varying factors including, but
not limited to, your driving style, tire
pressure and distance driven.
