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.)

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.

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 a n d A l c o 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.
W A RNIN 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 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.

THEFT ALARM
To Arm
• Press the Key Fob LOCK button or the power door lock switch while the door is open.
To Disarm
• Press the Key Fob UNLOCK button or 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.
09
GETTING STARTED
• 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.
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 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 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.
(Continued)
10
GETTING STARTED
WARNING!
(Continued)
• 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.
• 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.
• Being too close to the Seat-Mounted Side Air Bag during deployment could cause you
to be severely injured or killed.
• Do not drive your vehicle after the air bags have deployed. 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.
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
• 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. The
rear seat lower anchors can be readily
located on
identified by the symbol
the seatback directly above the
anchorages and are just visible when you
lean into the rear seat to install the child
restraint.
• 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 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 seat cover material.
11
GETTING STARTED
• If lowered, raise the convertible top.
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.
• 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.
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.
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.
12
GETTING STARTED
• 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.
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.
13
GETTING STARTED
FRONT SEATS
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.
Manual Seat Adjustment
Forward/Rearward
• Lift up on the adjusting bar located at the
front of the seat near the floor and release
at the desired position.
Recliner
• Lift the recliner lever located on the
outboard side of the seat, lean back and
release at the desired position.
Lumbar Support
• The lumbar adjust lever is on the inboard
side of the seatback. Rotate the lumbar
adjust lever downward to increase the
lumbar support or upward to decrease the
lumbar support as desired.
14
GETTING STARTED
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.
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.
HEATED SEATS
Front 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.
15
GETTING STARTED
• If the High-level setting is selected, the system will automatically switch to Low-level 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 has been
overheated could cause serious burns due to the increased surface temperature of the
seat.
TILT / TELESCOPING STEERING COLUMN
• The tilt/telescoping control lever is
located below the steering wheel at the
end of the steering column.
• Push down on the lever to unlock 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 must be
locked while driving. Adjusting the steering wheel while driving or driving without the
tilt/telescoping adjustment locked could cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle.
Failure to follow this warning may result in you and others being severely injured or killed.
16
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 of difficulty.
CAUTION!
Never use Non-Detergent Oil or Straight Mineral Oil in the engine or damage may result.

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 system to Partial Off mode by
switch.
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.
67
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.
- 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.

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.
• Please have your 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 a collision. Have the
vehicle checked immediately.
- 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.
- 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

69
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
- Anti-Lock Brake (ABS) Light
• This light monitors the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS).
• If the light is not on during starting, stays on, or turns on while driving, we recommend
you drive to the nearest service center and have the vehicle serviced immediately.
- Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) Light
• This light informs you of a problem with the Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) system.
• If a problem is detected, the light will come on while the engine is running. Cycle the
ignition when the vehicle has completely stopped and the shift lever is placed in the
PARK position; the light should turn off.
• If the light remains lit with the engine running, your vehicle will usually be drivable;
however, see an authorized service center immediately. If the light is flashing when the
engine is running, immediate service is required and you may experience reduced
performance, an elevated/rough idle or engine stall and your vehicle may require towing.
- 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.
- Air Bag Warning Light

70
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.

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
switch. For further information on ESC, refer to the
momentarily pressing the ESC Off
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.

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.
82
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.

CAUTION!
• When installing the Totally Integrated Power Module cover, it is important to ensure the
cover is properly positioned and fully latched. Failure to do so may allow water to get into
the Totally Integrated Power Module, and possibly result in an electrical system failure.
(Continued)
91
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
CAUTION!
(Continued)
• When replacing a blown fuse, it is important to use only a fuse having the correct
amperage rating. The use of a fuse with a rating other than indicated may result in a
dangerous electrical system overload. If a properly rated fuse continues to blow, it
indicates a problem in the circuit that must be corrected.
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.
92
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 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/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 a n d A l c o 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.
W A RNIN 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.
