This guide has been prepared to help you get quickly
acquainted with your new Jeep and to provide a convenient
reference source for common questions. However, it is not a
substitute for your Owner’s Manual.
For complete operational instructions, maintenance procedures
and important safety messages, please consult your Owner’s
Manual, Navigation/Uconnect® Manuals and other Warning
Labels in your vehicle.
Not all features shown in this guide may apply to your vehicle.

The driver’s primary responsibility is the safe operation of the vehicle.
Driving while distracted can result in loss of vehicle control, resulting
in a collision and personal injury. Chrysler Group LLC strongly
recommends that the driver use extreme caution when using any
device or feature that may take their attention off the road. Use of
any electrical devices such as cell phones, computers, portable radios,
vehicle navigation or other devices by the driver while the vehicle is
moving is dangerous and could lead to a serious collision. Texting while
driving is also dangerous and should never be done while the vehicle is
moving. If you find yourself unable to devote your full attention to
vehicle operation, pull off the road to a safe location and stop your
vehicle. Some States or Provinces prohibit the use of cellular
telephones or texting while driving. It is always the driver’s
responsibility to comply with all local laws.
Important:
Driving and Alcohol:
This User Guide is intended to familiarize you with the important features
of your vehicle. The DVD enclosed contains your Owner’s Manual,
Navigation/Uconnect® Manuals, Warranty Booklets, Tire Warranty
and Roadside Assistance (new vehicles purchased in the U.S.) or
Roadside Assistance (new vehicles purchased in Canada) in electronic
format. We hope you find it useful. Replacement DVD kits may be
purchased by visiting www.techauthority.com. Jeep® is a registered
trademark of Chrysler Group LLC. © 2013 Chrysler Group LLC.
Drunken driving is one of the most frequent causes of collisions. 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.
WA R N I N G !
Driving after drinking can lead to a collision. Your perceptions are
less sharp, your reflexes are slower, and your judgment is impaired
when you have been drinking. Never drink and then drive.

INTRODUCTION/WELCOME
WELCOME FROM CHRYSLER GROUP LLC
Congratulations on selecting your new Chrysler Group LLC vehicle. Be assured that it
represents precision workmanship, distinctive styling, and high quality - all essentials
that are traditional to our vehicles.
Your new Chrysler Group LLC vehicle has characteristics to enhance the driver's
control under some driving conditions. These are to assist the driver and are never a
substitute for attentive driving. They can never take the driver's place. Always drive
carefully.
Your new vehicle has many features for the comfort and convenience of you and your
passengers. Some of these should not be used when driving because they take your
eyes from the road or your attention from driving. Never text while driving or take your
eyes more than momentarily off the road.
This guide illustrates and describes the operation of features and equipment that are
either standard or optional on this vehicle. This guide may also include a description
of features and equipment that are no longer available or were not ordered on this
vehicle. Please disregard any features and equipment described in this guide that are
not available on this vehicle. Chrysler Group LLC reserves the right to make changes
in design and specifications and/or make additions to or improvements to its products
without imposing any obligation upon itself to install them on products previously
manufactured.
This User Guide has been prepared to help you quickly become acquainted with the
important features of your vehicle. It contains most things you will need to operate
and maintain the vehicle, including emergency information.
The DVD includes a computer application containing detailed owner's information
which can be viewed on a personal computer or MAC computer. The multimedia DVD
also includes videos which can be played on any standard DVD player (including the
Uconnect® Touch-Screen Radios). Additional DVD operational information is located
on the back of the DVD sleeve.
For complete owner information, refer to your Owner's Manual on the DVD in the owner’s
kit provided at the time of new vehicle purchase. For your convenience, the information
contained on the DVD may also be printed and saved for future reference.
Chrysler Group LLC is committed to protecting our environment and natural resources.
By converting from paper to electronic delivery for the majority of the user information
for your vehicle, together we greatly reduce the demand for tree-based products and
lessen the stress on our environment.

• Never leave children alone in a vehicle, or with access to an unlocked vehicle.
Allowing children to be in a vehicle unattended is dangerous for a number of
reasons. A child or others could be seriously or fatally injured. Children should
be warned not to touch the parking brake, brake pedal or the shift lever.
• Do not leave the key fob in the vehicle, or in a location accessible to children.
A child could operate power windows, other controls, or move the vehicle.
10
GETTING STARTED

The vehicle must be equipped with an automatic transaxle to be equipped with
Remote Start.
• Press the REMOTE START button 2 on the Key Fob twice within five seconds.
Pressing the REMOTE START button a third time shuts the engine off.

ignition key is placed in the ON/RUN position.
• The vehicle must be started with the key 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

11
GETTING STARTED
SEAT BELT
• Be sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and using a seat belt properly.
• Position the lap belt across your thighs, below your abdomen. To remove slack in
the lap portion, pull up a bit on the shoulder belt. To loosen the lap belt if it is too
tight, tilt the latch plate and pull on the lap belt. A snug belt reduces the risk of
sliding under the belt in a collision.
• Position the shoulder belt on your chest so that it is comfortable and not resting
on your neck. The retractor will withdraw any slack in the belt.
• A shoulder belt placed behind you will not protect you from injury during a
collision. You are more likely to hit your head in a collision if you do not wear your
shoulder belt. The lap and shoulder belt are meant to be used together.
• A belt that is too loose will not protect you properly. In a sudden stop you could move
too far forward, increasing the possibility of injury. Wear your seat belt snugly.
• A frayed or torn belt could rip apart in a collision and leave you with no protection.
Inspect the belt system periodically, checking for cuts, frays, or loose parts.
Damaged parts must be replaced immediately. Do not disassemble or modify the
system. Seat belt assemblies must be replaced after a collision if they have been
damaged (bent retractor, torn webbing, etc.).
• The seat belts for both front seating positions are equipped with pretensioning
devices that are designed to remove slack from the seat belt in the event of a collision.
• A deployed pretensioner or a deployed air bag must be replaced immediately.
WARNING!
In a collision, you and your passengers can suffer much greater injuries if you are
not buckled up properly. 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.
12
GETTING STARTED
SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM (SRS) — AIR BAGS
• This vehicle has Advanced Front Air Bags for both the driver and right front
passenger as a supplement to the seat belt restraint system. The Advanced Front
Air Bags will not deploy in every type of collision.
• Advanced Front Air Bags are designed to provide additional protection by
supplementing the seat belts in certain frontal collisions depending on several
factors, including the severity and type of collision. Advanced Front Air Bags are
not expected to reduce the risk of injury in rear, side, or rollover collisions.
• This vehicle is equipped with Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtains to
protect the driver, front and rear passengers sitting next to a window.
• This vehicle may be equipped with Supplemental Seat-Mounted Side Air Bags to
provide enhanced protection to help protect an occupant during a side impact.
is not on during starting, stays on, or turns on while
• If the Air Bag Warning Light
driving, have the vehicle serviced by an authorized service center immediately.
• Refer to the Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details regarding the
Supplemental Restraint System (SRS).
WARNING!
• Relying on the air bags alone could lead to more severe injuries in a collision.
The air bags work with your seat belt to restrain you properly. In some
collisions, the air bags won’t deploy at all. Always wear your seat belts even
though you have air bags.
• Being too close to the steering wheel or instrument panel during Advanced
Front Air Bag deployment could cause serious injury, including death. Air bags
need room to inflate. Sit back, comfortably extending your arms to reach the
steering wheel or instrument panel.
• Being too close to the Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflation Curtain and/or
Seat-Mounted Side Air Bag during deployment could cause you to be severely
injured or killed.
• Supplemental Side Air bag Inflatable Curtains and Supplemental Seat-Mounted
Side Air Bags need room to inflate. Do not lean against the door or window.
Sit upright in the center of the seat.
• Do not drive your vehicle after the air bags have developed. If you are involved
in another collision, the air bags will not be in place to protect you.
• After any collision, the vehicle should be taken to an authorized dealer
immediately.
13
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.
NOTE:
• For additional information, refer to www.seatcheck.org or call 1–866–SEAT-CHECK
(1–866–732–8243).
• Canadian residents, should refer to Transport Canada’s website for additional
information.
• http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/roadsafety/safedrivers-childsafety-index-53.htm
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. LATCH child restraint anchorage systems are installed at all three rear
seating positions.
• The rear outboard seating positions have lower anchors, and all three rear seating
positions have top tether anchors.
• Child seats with fixed lower attachments must be installed in the outboard
positions only. Child seats with flexible lower attachments can be used in all three
seating positions.
• NEVER install LATCH-compatible child seats such that two seats share a common
lower anchorage.
• Loosen the child seat 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 seatcover material.
14
GETTING STARTED
• The tether strap should be routed under the center of the head restraint and attached
to the tether anchor on the rear of the seatback.
• Tighten all three straps as you push the
child restraint rearward and downward
into the seat.
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. The tether strap should be routed over the center top of the
head restraint.
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.
• Rearward-facing child seats must never be used in the front seat of a vehicle
with a front passenger air bag. An air bag deployment could cause severe injury
or death to infants in this position.
• Improper installation of a child restraint to the LATCH anchorages can lead to
failure of an infant or child restraint. The child could be severely 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.
15
GETTING STARTED
FRONT SEATS
Power Seats
• The power seat switch is located on
the outboard side of the seat near the
floor. Use the switch to move the seat
up, down, forward, rearward, or to tilt
the seat.
MANUAL SEAT
Forward/Rearward
• Lift up on the adjusting bar located at
the front of the seat near the floor and
release it when the seat is at the desired
position. Then, using body pressure,
move forward and backward on the seat
to be sure that the seat adjusters have
latched.
Recliner
• Lift the recliner handle located on the
outboard side of the seat, lean back
and release at the desired position.
Driver’s Seat Height Adjustment
• The height adjustment lever is located
on the outboard side of the seat. Raise
the lever to raise the seat. Lower the
lever to lower the seat.
Lumbar Support
• The lumbar lever is on the outboard side
of the seatback. Rotate the lumbar lever
downward to increase the lumbar support
or upward to decrease the lumbar support as desired.
16
GETTING STARTED
Fold-Flat Front Passenger Seat
• The front passenger seat can be folded
flat. Pull up on the recliner handle, to
the full upward position, to fold down
the seatback.
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.
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.
• 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.
17
GETTING STARTED
REAR SEATS
Folding Rear Seatback
• To fold each rear seatback, pull the strap
forward to move the seatback forward
and flat.
Reclining Rear Seatback
• To recline each rear seatback, pull
the strap forward just enough to release the seatback latch. Then push
the seatback to a reclined position,
approximately 35 degrees maximum,
and release the strap.
WARNING!
Be certain that the seatback is securely locked into position. If the seatback is not
securely locked into position, the seat will not provide the proper stability for child
seats and/or passengers. An improperly latched seat could cause serious injury.
TILT STEERING COLUMN
• The tilt lever is located on the steering
column, below the turn signal lever.
• Push down on the lever to unlock the
steering column.
• With one hand firmly on the steering
wheel, move the steering column up or
down as desired.
• Pull upward on the lever to lock the
column firmly in place.
WARNING!
Do not adjust the steering column while driving. Adjusting the steering column
while driving, or driving with the steering column unlocked, could cause the driver
to lose control of the vehicle. Be sure the steering column is locked before driving
your vehicle. Failure to follow this warning may result in severe injury or death.
18
GETTING STARTED
HEATED SEATS
Front Heated Seats
• The controls for the front heated seats
are located on the center instrument
panel area.
• Press the switch once to select Highlevel heating. Press the switch a second
time to select Low-level heating. Press
the switch a third time to shut the heating elements Off.
• If the High-level setting is selected, the
system will automatically switch to Lowlevel after approximately 60 minutes.
The Low-level setting will turn Off automatically after approximately 45 minutes.
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

OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
ENGINE BREAK-IN RECOMMENDATIONS
• A long break-in period is not required for the engine and drivetrain (transmission
and axle) in your vehicle.
• Drive moderately during the first 300 miles (500 km). After the initial 60 miles
(100 km), speeds up to 50 or 55 mph (80 or 90 km/h) are desirable.
• While cruising, brief full-throttle acceleration within the limits of local traffic laws
contributes to a good break-in. Wide-open throttle acceleration in low gear can be
detrimental and should be avoided.
• The engine oil installed in the engine at the factory is a high-quality energy
conserving type lubricant. Oil changes should be consistent with anticipated
climate conditions under which vehicle operations will occur. For the recommended viscosity and quality grades, refer to “Maintaining Your Vehicle”.
NOTE:
A new engine may consume some oil during its first few thousand miles (kilometers)
of operation. This should be considered a normal part of the break-in and not
interpreted as an indication to an engine problem or malfunction.
CAUTION!
Never use Non-Detergent Oil or Straight Mineral Oil in the engine or damage may result.

CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE AUTOMATIC
TRANSMISSION (CVT)
• While conventional automatic transmissions typically have 4, 5 or 6 speeds,
the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) has an infinite number of speeds.
This allows it to adjust to exactly the right ratio to optimize performance and fuel
economy.
• Under hard acceleration, you may hear more engine noise than with a conventional
transmission. The CVT may also occasionally feel like it is “shifting.” These characteristics are perfectly normal and contribute to the CVT's efficiency.

• This feature helps keep the vehicle moving forward when one wheel loses traction
by directing power from the wheel that slips to the wheel with more grip on the
same axle providing more traction in off-road situations.
• Hill Descent Control/Hill Start Assist
• The Hill Descent Control System maintains vehicle speed while descending hills
during off-road driving situations and is available in both low and reverse gears.
• This allows a smooth and controlled hill descent on rough or slippery terrain
without the driver needing to touch the brake pedal.
• The Hill Start Assist system assists the driver when starting a vehicle from a stop
on a hill.

INSTRUMENT CLUSTER WARNING LIGHTS
- Electronic Stability Control (ESC) Activation/Malfunction Indicator Light
• If the “ESC Activation/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 do not operate the vehicle. Have the vehicle serviced immediately.
• The “ESC Activation/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
switch.
system to Partial Off mode by momentarily pressing the ESC 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.
70
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
• IF THE LIGHT STARTS FLASHING INDICATING A LOW TIRE PRESSURE, ADJUST THE AIR
PRESSURE IN THE LOW TIRE TO THE AIR PRESSURE SHOWN ON THE VEHICLE PLACARD
OR TIRE INFLATION PRESSURE LABEL LOCATED ON THE DRIVER'S DOOR.
NOTE:
AFTER INFLATION, THE VEHICLE MAY NEED TO BE DRIVEN FOR 20 MINUTES
BEFORE THE FLASHING LIGHT WILL TURN OFF.
• 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 each time the vehicle is restarted as long as
the malfunction exists.
• 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.
NOTE:
Tire pressures change by approximately 1 psi (7 kPa) per 12° F (7° C) of air temperature
change. Keep this in mind when checking tire pressure inside a garage, especially in the
Winter. Example: If garage temperature is 68°F (20°C) and the outside temperature is
32°F (0°C), then the cold tire inflation pressure should be increased by 3 psi (21 kPa),
which equals 1 psi (7 kPa) for every 12°F (7°C) for this outside temperature condition.
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.

taking the appropriate action.
• On the highways — slow down.
• In city traffic — while stopped, place the transmission in 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 blower 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.
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.

OFF.
81
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
Jump-Starting Procedure
NOTE:
Remove Air Intake before proceeding with this Jump-Starting procedure.
1. Connect the positive (+) end of the jumper cable to the positive (+) post of the
discharged vehicle.
2. Connect the opposite end of the positive (+) jumper cable to the positive (+) post
of the booster battery.
3. Connect the negative end (-) of the jumper cable to the negative (-) post of the
booster battery.
4. 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
the fuel injection system.
5. 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:
6. Disconnect the negative (-) jumper cable from the engine ground of the vehicle
with the discharged battery.
7. Disconnect the negative end (-) of the jumper cable from the negative (-) post of
the booster battery.

post of the booster battery.
9. Disconnect the positive (+) end of the jumper cable from the positive (+) post of
the discharged vehicle.
10. Reinstall the air intake duct.
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.
• 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.
• Failure to follow these procedures could result in damage to the charging
system of the booster vehicle or the discharged vehicle.
82
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
WARNING!
• Do not attempt jump-starting if the battery is frozen. It could rupture or explode
and cause personal injury.
• 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.
• Do not allow vehicles to touch each other as this could establish a ground
connection and personal injury could result.
• Failure to follow this procedure could result in personal injury or property
damage due to battery explosion.
• 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.

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 Off”
mode by momentarily pressing the ESC Off
switch. For further information on
ESC, refer to the Owner's Manual on the DVD.
CAUTION!
• When “rocking” a stuck vehicle by moving between REVERSE and DRIVE, 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).
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.
85
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.
• How fast the vehicle was traveling.
• These data can help provide a better understanding of the circumstances in which
crashes and injuries occur.
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
CAUTION!
• Mixing of engine coolant (antifreeze) other than specified Organic Additive
Technology (OAT) engine coolant (antifreeze), may result in engine damage and
may decrease corrosion protection. Organic Additive Technology (OAT) engine
coolant is different and should not be mixed with Hybrid Organic Additive
Technology (HOAT) engine coolant (antifreeze) or any “globally compatible”
coolant (antifreeze). If a non-OAT engine coolant (antifreeze) is introduced into
the cooling system in an emergency, it should be flushed with OAT coolant and
replaced with the specified OAT engine coolant (antifreeze) as soon as possible.
• Do not use water alone or alcohol-based engine coolant (antifreeze) products.
Do not use additional rust inhibitors or antirust products, as they may not be
compatible with the radiator engine coolant and may plug the radiator.
• This vehicle has not been designed for use with propylene glycol-based engine
coolant (antifreeze). Use of propylene glycol-based engine coolant (antifreeze)
is not recommended.
MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE
Your vehicle is equipped with an automatic oil change indicator system. The oil
change indicator system will remind you that it is time to take your vehicle in for
scheduled maintenance.
Based on engine operation conditions, the oil change indicator message will
illuminate. This means that service is required for your vehicle. Operating conditions
such as frequent short-trips, trailer tow, extremely hot or cold ambient temperatures
will influence when the “Change Oil” or “Oil Change Required” message is displayed. Severe Operating Conditions can cause the change oil message to illuminate
as early as 3,500 miles (5,600 km) since last reset. Have your vehicle serviced as
soon as possible, within the next 500 miles (805 km).
On Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) equipped vehicles, “Oil Change
Required” will be displayed in the EVIC and a single chime will sound, indicating that
an oil change is necessary.
On Non-EVIC equipped vehicles, “Change Oil” will flash in the instrument cluster
odometer and a single chime will sound, indicating that an oil change is necessary.
91
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
Your authorized dealer will reset the oil change indicator message after completing
the scheduled oil change. If a scheduled oil change is performed by someone other
than your authorized dealer, the message can be reset by referring to the steps
described under “Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)/Oil Change Required” in “Understanding Your Instrument Panel” or under “Instrument Cluster
Description/Odometer/Trip Odometer” in “Understanding Your Instrument Panel” for
further information.
NOTE:
Under no circumstances should oil change intervals exceed 10,000 miles (16,000 km)
or twelve months, whichever comes first.
Once A Month Or Before A Long Trip:
• Check engine oil level
• Check windshield washer fluid level
• Check the tire inflation pressures and look for unusual wear or damage
• Check the fluid levels of the coolant reservoir, brake master cylinder, power
steering and fill as needed

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.
97
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.
• Improperly inflated tires are dangerous and can cause collisions. 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.

If you are the first registered retail owner of
your vehicle, you may obtain a complimentary
printed copy of the Owner’s Manual, Navigation/
Uconnect® Manuals or Warranty Booklet by calling
1-877-426-5337 (U.S.) or 1-800-387-1143 (Canada)
or by contacting your dealer.
This guide has been prepared to help you get quickly
acquainted with your new Jeep and to provide a convenient
reference source for common questions. However, it is not a
substitute for your Owner’s Manual.
For complete operational instructions, maintenance procedures
and important safety messages, please consult your Owner’s
Manual, Navigation/Uconnect® Manuals and other Warning
Labels in your vehicle.
Not all features shown in this guide may apply to your vehicle.
For additional information on accessories to help personalize
your vehicle, visit www.mopar.com or your local Jeep dealer.
The driver’s primary responsibility is the safe operation of the vehicle.
Driving while distracted can result in loss of vehicle control, resulting
in a collision and personal injury. Chrysler Group LLC strongly
recommends that the driver use extreme caution when using any
device or feature that may take their attention off the road. Use of
any electrical devices such as cell phones, computers, portable radios,
vehicle navigation or other devices by the driver while the vehicle is
moving is dangerous and could lead to a serious collision. Texting while
driving is also dangerous and should never be done while the vehicle is
moving. If you find yourself unable to devote your full attention to
vehicle operation, pull off the road to a safe location and stop your
vehicle. Some States or Provinces prohibit the use of cellular
telephones or texting while driving. It is always the driver’s
responsibility to comply with all local laws.
Important:
Driving and Alcohol:
This User Guide is intended to familiarize you with the important features
of your vehicle. The DVD enclosed contains your Owner’s Manual,
Navigation/Uconnect® Manuals, Warranty Booklets, Tire Warranty
and Roadside Assistance (new vehicles purchased in the U.S.) or
Roadside Assistance (new vehicles purchased in Canada) in electronic
format. We hope you find it useful. Replacement DVD kits may be
purchased by visiting www.techauthority.com. Jeep® is a registered
trademark of Chrysler Group LLC. © 2013 Chrysler Group LLC.
Drunken driving is one of the most frequent causes of collisions. 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.
WA R N I N G !
Driving after drinking can lead to a collision. Your perceptions are
less sharp, your reflexes are slower, and your judgment is impaired
when you have been drinking. Never drink and then drive.
