If you are the first registered retail owner of your vehicle,
you may obtain a complimentary printed copy of the
Owner’s Manual, Navigation/Media Center Manuals or
Warranty Booklet by calling 1-800-247-9753 (U.S.)
or 1-800-387-1143 (Canada) or by contacting your 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.
I M P O R T A N T : This User Guide is intended to familiarize you with the
important features of your vehicle. The DVD enclosed contains your Owner’s Manual,
Navigation/Media Center Manuals, Warranty Booklets, Tire Warranty and 24-Hour
Towing 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.

This guide has been prepared to help you get quickly acquainted with your new
Chrysler 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/Media Center Manuals, Multimedia
User Manual 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 mopar.com or your local Chrysler dealer.
D r i v i n g and A l co h o l : 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.
WARNING
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 Media Center
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.
Vehicles Sold In Canada
With respect to any vehicles sold in Canada, the name Chrysler Group LLC shall be deemed
to be deleted and the name Chrysler Canada Inc. used in substitution therefore.
WARNING!
• Pedals that cannot move freely can cause loss of vehicle control and increase the risk of
serious personal injury.

INTRODUCTION/WELCOME
WARNING!
(Continued)
• Always make sure that objects cannot fall into the driver foot well while the vehicle is
moving. Objects can become trapped under the brake pedal and accelerator pedal
causing a loss of vehicle control.
• Failure to properly follow floor mat installation or mounting can cause interference with
the brake pedal and accelerator pedal operation causing loss of control of the vehicle.
• Never use the ‘PARK’ position as a substitute for the parking brake. Always apply the
parking brake fully when parked to guard against vehicle movement and possible injury
or damage.
• Refer to your Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details.
USE OF AFTERMARKET PRODUCTS (ELECTRONICS)
The use of aftermarket devices including cell phones, MP3 players, GPS systems, or chargers
may affect the performance of on-board wireless features including Keyless Enter-N-Go and
Remote Start range. If you are experiencing difficulties with any of your wireless features, try
disconnecting your aftermarket devices to see if the situation improves. If your symptoms
persist, please see an authorized dealer.

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 inside the vehicle
or in the ignition. A child could start the vehicle, operate power windows, other controls,
or move the vehicle.
• Do not leave children or animals inside parked vehicles in hot weather. Interior heat
build-up may cause them to be severely injured or killed.
• 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.
• Driving with the liftgate open can allow poisonous exhaust gases into your vehicle. You
and your passengers could be injured by these fumes. Keep the flipper glass closed when
you are operating the vehicle.
REMOTE START
• Press the REMOTE START button 2 twice within five seconds. Pressing the
REMOTE START button a third time shuts the engine off.

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 you or others to be severely injured or killed when inhaled.
• Keep Key Fob transmitters away from children. Operation of the Remote Start System,
windows, door locks or other controls could cause you and others to be severely injured
or killed.
KEYLESS ENTER-N-GO
• The Keyless Enter-N-Go system is an enhancement to the vehicle's Key Fob. This feature
allows you to lock and unlock the vehicle's door(s) and liftgate without having to press the
Key Fob lock or unlock buttons, as well as starting and stopping the vehicle with the press
of a button.
10
GETTING STARTED
To Unlock From The Driver or Passenger Side:
• With a valid Keyless Enter-N-Go Key Fob
located outside the vehicle and within 5 ft
(1.5m) of the driver or passenger side door
handle, grab either front door handle to
unlock the door automatically.
To Lock the Vehicle:
• Both front door handles have LOCK
buttons located on the outside of the
handle. With one of the vehicle's Keyless
Enter-N-Go Key Fobs located outside the
vehicle and within 5 ft (1.5m) of the
driver's or passenger front door handle,
press the door handle LOCK button to
lock all four doors and liftgate.

switch, the doors and liftgate will unlock and the horn will chirp three times. On the third
attempt, your Key Fob can be locked inside the vehicle.
• After pressing the Keyless Enter-N-Go LOCK button, you must wait 2 seconds before you
can lock or unlock the vehicle using the door handle. This is done to allow you to check if
the vehicle is locked by pulling the door handle, without the vehicle reacting and unlocking.

with one of the Key Fobs located outside the vehicle and within 5 ft (1.5m) of the driver's and
passenger front door handles, press the Keyless Enter-N-Go LOCK button located on the door

13
GETTING STARTED
To Disarm
• Keyless Enter-N-Go button installed: Press the Key Fob UNLOCK button or with one of
the Key Fobs located outside the vehicle and within 5 ft (1.5m) of the driver's and passenger
front door handles, grab the Keyless Enter-N-Go door handle and enter the vehicle, then press
the Keyless Enter-N-Go Start/Stop button (requires at least one valid Key Fob in the vehicle).
• Keyless Enter-N-Go button not installed: Press the Key Fob UNLOCK button or with one
of the Key Fobs located outside the vehicle and within 5 ft (1.5m) of the driver's and passenger
front door handles, grab the Keyless Enter-N-Go door handle and enter the vehicle, then 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.
• 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.
14
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.

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.
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 child seat 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.
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.
16
GETTING STARTED
• 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.
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!
• 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.
• Failure to comply with the following conditions could result in you and others being
severely injured or killed:
• Be certain that the seat cushion is locked securely into position before using the seat.
An improperly latched seat cushion could passengers to be severely injured or killed.
• 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.
• 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 infants in this position to be
severely injured or killed.

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 “Maintenance Procedures” in “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 of difficulty.
CAUTION!
Never use Non-Detergent Oil or Straight Mineral Oil in the engine or damage may result.

24-HOUR TOWING ASSISTANCE
• Dial toll-free 1-800-521-2779 or 1-800-363-4869 for Canadian residents.
• Provide your name, vehicle identification number and license plate number.
• Provide your location, including telephone number, from which you are calling.
• Briefly describe the nature of the problem and answer a few simple questions.
• You will be given the name of the service provider and an estimated time of arrival. If you
feel you are in an “unsafe situation”, please let us know. With your consent, we will contact
local police or safety authorities.
INSTRUMENT CLUSTER WARNING LIGHTS
- Electronic Stability Control (ESC) 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 ESC 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.
• 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.
85
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
• 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.
- 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.
86
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
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.
• Please have your vehicle serviced immediately.
WARNING!
Driving a vehicle with the red brake light on is dangerous. Part of the brake system may

- 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 Control (ESC) Indicator Light/Brake Assist System
(BAS) Warning Light
• If the ESC/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.

88
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, 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 240°F (116 °C) or greater pull over and stop the vehicle. Idle the vehicle with the air
conditioner turned off until the pointer drops back into the normal range 200–230°F
(93–110°C). If the pointer remains at 240°F (116°C) or greater and you hear a chime, 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.

WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
WARNING!
(Continued)
• Being under a jacked-up vehicle is dangerous. The vehicle could slip off the jack and fall
on you. You could be crushed. Never put 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.
• Never start or run the engine while the vehicle is on a jack.
• The jack is designed to be used 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.
• Carefully follow these tire changing warnings 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.
• Turn on the Hazard Warning flasher.
• Block the wheel diagonally opposite the wheel to be raised.
• Set the parking brake firmly and set an automatic transmission in PARK; a manual
transmission in REVERSE.
• Never start or run the engine with the vehicle on a jack.
• Do not let anyone sit in the vehicle when it is on a jack.
• Do not get under the vehicle when it is on a jack.
• Only use the jack in the positions indicated and for lifting this vehicle during a tire
change.
• If working on or near a roadway, be extremely careful of motor traffic.
• To assure that spare tires, flat or inflated, are securely stowed, spares must be stowed with
the valve stem facing the ground.
• Raising the vehicle higher than necessary can make the vehicle less stable. It could slip off
the jack and hurt someone near it. Raise the vehicle only enough to remove the tire.
• To avoid the risk of forcing the vehicle off the jack, do not tighten the wheel nuts fully
until the vehicle has been lowered. Failure to follow this warning may result in personal
injury.
• 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. Have the deflated (flat) tire repaired or replaced immediately.
• Verify that both retainer tabs of the wheel spacer have been properly extended through
the center of the wheel and spare tire/cover assembly. Failure to properly engage both
retainer tabs could result in loss of the spare tire and cover assembly, which will cause
vehicle damage and may cause loss of vehicle control.

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.
Preparations for Jump-Start
• The battery in your vehicle is located on the left side of the engine compartment.
• 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.
Jump-Starting Procedure
• 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.
• 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.
• 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.
100
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
• 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!
• 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.
• 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.
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.
• 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.
• 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: If your vehicle is equipped with Electronic Stability Control (ESC) or Traction
Control
, turn the system off before attempting to “rock” the vehicle.
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.
104
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.
• 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.
105
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.
106
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
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.
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.

MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
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.
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 the following MOPAR® wheel cleaners
are recommended or select a non-abrasive, non acidic cleaner.
• For chrome wheels, use MOPAR® Chrome Cleaner (Part# 04318013) or equivalent.
• For aluminum wheels, use MOPAR® Wheel Cleaner (Part# 04796239AB) or equivalent.
116
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
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. Use only the approved MOPAR® Wheel Cleaners or equivalent.

If you are the first registered retail owner of your vehicle,
you may obtain a complimentary printed copy of the
Owner’s Manual, Navigation/Media Center Manuals or
Warranty Booklet by calling 1-800-247-9753 (U.S.)
or 1-800-387-1143 (Canada) or by contacting your 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.
I M P O R T A N T : This User Guide is intended to familiarize you with the
important features of your vehicle. The DVD enclosed contains your Owner’s Manual,
Navigation/Media Center Manuals, Warranty Booklets, Tire Warranty and 24-Hour
Towing 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.

This guide has been prepared to help you get quickly acquainted with your new
Chrysler 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/Media Center Manuals, Multimedia
User Manual 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 mopar.com or your local Chrysler dealer.
D r i v i n g and A l co h o l : 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.
WARNING
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.
