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 (U.S.), www.mopar.ca
(Canada) 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.
1396569_14c_Grand_Cherokee_UG_041813.indd 2
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.

INTRODUCTION/WELCOME
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.
WARNING!
• Pedals that cannot move freely can cause loss of vehicle control and increase
the risk of serious personal injury.
• 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.
Rollover Warning
• Utility vehicles have a significantly higher rollover rate than other types of vehicles.
This vehicle has a higher ground clearance and a higher center of gravity than many
passenger cars. It is capable of performing better in a wide variety of off-road
applications.
• Driven in an unsafe manner, all vehicles can go out of control. Because of the
higher center of gravity, if this vehicle is out of control it may roll over when some
other vehicles may not.
• Do not attempt sharp turns, abrupt maneuvers, or other unsafe driving actions that
can cause loss of vehicle control. Failure to operate this vehicle safely may result
in a collision, rollover of the vehicle, and severe or fatal injury. Drive carefully.

INTRODUCTION/WELCOME
• Failure to use the driver and passenger seat belts provided is a major cause of
severe or fatal injury. In a rollover crash, an unbelted person is significantly more
likely to die than a person wearing a seat belt. Always buckle up.

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.

GETTING STARTED
THEFT ALARM
To Arm
• Press the Keyless Enter-N-Go™ Start/Stop button until the Electronic Vehicle
Information Center (EVIC) indicates that the vehicle ignition is “OFF”. Press the
power door lock switch while the door is open, press the Key Fob LOCK button, or
with one of the Key Fobs located outside the vehicle and within 5 ft (1.5 m) of the
driver's and passenger front door handles, press the Keyless Enter-N-Go™ LOCK
button located on the door handle.
NOTE:
After pressing the Keyless Enter-N-Go™ LOCK button, you must wait two seconds
before you can lock or unlock the vehicle via the door handle.
To Disarm
• Press the Key Fob UNLOCK button or with one of the Key Fobs located outside the
vehicle and within 5 ft (1.5 m) 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).
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.
14
GETTING STARTED
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 front passenger
as a supplement to the seat belt restraint systems. The driver's Advanced Front Air
Bag is mounted in the center of the steering wheel. The passenger's Advanced
Front Air Bag is mounted in the instrument panel, above the glove compartment.
The words SRS AIR BAG are embossed on the air bag covers.
• 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.

GETTING STARTED
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.
• 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.
• Being too close to the Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtain and/or
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.
LATCH – Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren
• Your vehicle is equipped with the child restraint anchorage system called LATCH,
which stands for Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren. The rear outboard seating
positions have lower anchors and top tether anchors. The rear center seating position
has a top tether anchor only.
• You may use the LATCH anchorage system until the combined weight of the child
and the child restraint is 65 lbs (29.5 kg). Use the seat belt and tether anchor
instead of the LATCH system once the combined weight is more than 65 lbs
(29.5 kg).
16
GETTING STARTED
• The lower anchorages are round bars that are found at the rear of the seat cushion
where it meets the seatback, below the anchorage symbols on the seatback. They are
just visible when you lean into the rear seat to install the child restraint. You will easily
feel them if you run your finger along gap between the seatback and seat cushion.
• In addition, there are tether strap
anchorages behind each rear seating
position located on the back of the
seat. To access the top tether strap
anchorages behind the rear seat, pull
the carpeted floor panel away from the
seat back, this will expose the top
tether strap anchorages. DO NOT USE
the cargo tie down loops located on the
load floor as tether anchorages.
• Do not install a child restraint in the
center position using the LATCH system. Use the seat belt and tether anchor to install a child seat in the center
seating position.
• For rearward facing infant seats secured in the center seat position with
the vehicle seat belts, the rear center
seat position has an arm rest tether
that secures the arm rest in the upward
position.
1. To access the center seat arm rest
tether, first lower the arm rest. The tether is located behind the armrest and
hooked onto the plastic seat backing.
2. Pull down on the tether to unhook it from the plastic seat backing.
3. Raise the armrest and attach the tether hook to the strap located on the front of
the arm rest.
17
GETTING STARTED
Installing the Child Restraint Using the LATCH Lower Anchors
NOTE:
Never “share” a LATCH anchorage with two or more child restraints.
1. Loosen the adjusters on the lower straps and on the tether strap of the child seat so
that you can more easily attach the hooks or connectors to the vehicle anchorages.
2. Attach the lower hooks or connectors of the child restraint to the lower anchorages
in the selected seating position.
3. If the child restraint has a tether strap, connect it to the top tether anchorage.
See below for directions to attach a tether anchor.
4. Tighten all of the straps as you push the child restraint rearward and downward into
the seat. Remove slack in the straps according to the child restraint manufacturer’s
instructions.
Installing The Child Restraint Using The Vehicle Seat Belts
• The seat belts in the passenger seating positions are equipped with a Switchable
Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) that is designed to keep the lap portion of the
seat belt tight around the child restraint. Any seat belt system will loosen with
time, so check the belt occasionally, and pull it tight if necessary.
• Always use the tether anchor when using the seat belt to install a forward facing
child restraint, up to the recommended weight limit of the child restraint.
• To install a child seat using an ALR:
1. Pull enough of the seat belt webbing from the retractor to pass it through the belt
path of the child restraint. Do not twist the belt webbing in the belt path.
2. Slide the latch plate into the buckle until you hear a “click.”
3. Pull on the webbing to make the lap portion tight against the child seat.
4. To lock the seat belt, pull down on the shoulder part of the belt until you have
pulled all the seat belt webbing out of the retractor. Then, allow the webbing to
retract back into the retractor. As the webbing retracts, you will hear a clicking
sound. This means the seat belt is now in the Automatic Locking mode.
5. Try to pull the webbing out of the retractor. If it is locked, you should not be able
to pull out any webbing. If the retractor is not locked, repeat the last step.
6. Finally, pull up on any extra webbing to tighten the lap portion around the child
restraint while you push the child restraint rearward and downward into the
vehicle seat.
7. If the child restraint has a top tether strap and the seating position has a top tether
anchorage, connect the tether strap to the anchorage and tighten the tether strap.
See below for directions to attach a tether anchor.
8. Test that the child restraint is installed tightly by pulling back and forth on the
child seat at the belt path. It should not move more than 1 inch (25.4 mm) in any
direction.
18
GETTING STARTED
Installing The Top Tether Strap (With Either Lower Anchors Or Vehicle Seat Belt):
When installing a forward-facing child restraint, the top tether strap should always
to be secured, up to the tether anchor weight limit, whether the child restraint is
installed with the lower anchors or the vehicle seat belt.
1. To access the top tether strap anchorages behind the rear seat, pull the carpeted
floor panel away from the seat back, this will expose the top tether strap anchorages.
2. Route the tether strap to provide the most direct path for the strap between the
anchor and the child seat.
3. If your vehicle is equipped with adjustable rear head restraints, raise the head
restraint, and where possible, route the tether strap under the head restraint and
between the two posts. If not possible, lower the head restraint and pass the
tether strap around the outboard side of the head restraint.
4. For the center seating position, route the tether strap over the seatback and
headrest.
5. Attach the tether strap hook of the child restraint to the top tether anchorage and
remove slack in the tether strap according to the child restraint manufacturer’s
instructions. DO NOT USE the cargo tie down loops located on the load floor as
tether anchorages.
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.
• 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.
• 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.
• If your vehicle is equipped with a split rear seat, make sure the tether strap
does not slip into the opening between the seatbacks as you remove slack in
the strap.

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.

Forward Collision Warning (FCW) With Mitigation
• The Forward Collision Warning (FCW) system with mitigation provides the driver
with audible warnings, visual warnings (within the EVIC), and may apply a brake
jerk to warn the driver when it detects a potential frontal collision. The warnings
and limited autonomous braking are intended to provide the driver with enough
time to react, avoid or mitigate the potential collision.
32
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
Turning FCW ON Or OFF
NOTE:
The default status of FCW is “On”, this allows the system to warn you of a possible
collision with the vehicle in front of you when you are farther away and it applies
limited braking. This gives you the most reaction time to avoid a possible collision.
• The forward collision button is located below the climate controls, on the switch
panel.
• To turn the FCW system OFF, press the forward collision button once to turn the
system OFF (led turns on).
• To turn the FCW system back ON, press the forward collision button again to turn

System Screen:
• Far
• Near
• Off
NOTE:
The FCW and active braking settings can only be changed when the vehicle is in
PARK.
Far
• The default status of FCW is the “Far” setting.
• The far setting provides warnings for potential collisions more distant in front of
the vehicle, allowing the driver to have the most reaction time to avoid a collision.
• This setting is designed to provide early warnings per NHTSA (National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration) recommendations.
• More cautious drivers that do not mind frequent warnings may prefer this setting.
NOTE:
This setting gives you the most reaction time.
Near
• Changing the FCW status to the “Near” setting, allows the system to warn you of
a potential frontal collision when you are much closer.
• This setting provides less reaction time than the “Far” setting, which allows for a
more dynamic driving experience.
• More dynamic or aggressive drivers that want to avoid frequent warnings may
prefer this setting.
33
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
Off
• Changing the FCW status to “Off” prevents the system from warning you of a
possible collision with the vehicle in front of you.

OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
WARNING!
• Leaving the Electronic or Adaptive Speed Control system on when not in use is
dangerous. You could accidentally set the system or cause it to go faster than
you want. You could lose control and have a collision. Always leave the
Electronic or Adaptive Speed Control system off when you are not using it.
• Electronic Speed Control can be dangerous where the system cannot maintain a
constant speed. Your vehicle could go too fast for the conditions, and you could
lose control. A collision could be the result. Do not use Electronic Speed Control
in heavy traffic or on roads that are winding, icy, snow-covered or slippery.
• Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is a convenience system. It is not a substitute for
active driving involvement. Pay attention to road, traffic, and weather conditions,
vehicle speed, distance to the vehicle ahead, and brake operation to ensure safe
operation of the vehicle under all road conditions. Your attention is always
required while driving to maintain safe control of your vehicle. Failure to follow
these warnings can result in a collision or serious personal injury.
The ACC system:
• Does not react to pedestrians, oncoming vehicles, and stationary objects (i.e.,
a stopped vehicle in a traffic jam or a disabled vehicle).
• Cannot take street, traffic, and weather conditions into account, and may be
limited upon adverse sight distance conditions.
• Does not predict the lane curvature or the movement of preceding vehicles and
will not compensate for such changes.
• Does not always fully recognize complex driving conditions, which can result in
wrong or missing distance warnings.
• Can only apply a maximum of 25% of the vehicle’s braking capability, and will
not bring the vehicle to a complete stop.
You should switch off the ACC system:
• When driving in fog, heavy rain, heavy snow, sleet, heavy traffic, and complex
driving situations (i.e., in highway construction zones).
• When entering a turn lane or highway off ramp; when driving on roads that are
winding, icy, snow-covered, slippery, or have steep uphill or downhill slopes;
and when towing a trailer.
• When circumstances do not allow safe driving at a constant speed.
• Failure to follow these warnings can result in a collision.
• Forward Collision Warning (FCW) is not intended to avoid a collision on its own.
The driver has the responsibility to avoid a collision by controlling the vehicle
via braking and steering. Failure to follow this warning could lead to serious
injury or death.

MEDIA HUB – PLAYING iPod®/USB/MP3 DEVICES
• There are many ways to play music from iPod®/MP3 players or USB devices through
your vehicle's sound system.
Audio Jack (AUX)
• The AUX allows a portable device, such as an MP3 player or an iPod®, to be
plugged into the radio and utilize the vehicle’s sound system, using a 3.5 mm
audio cable, to amplify the source and play through the vehicle speakers.
• Touching the Media soft-key then choose AUX source will change the mode to
auxiliary device if the audio jack is connected, allowing the music from your
portable device to be heard through the vehicle's speakers. In order to activate the
AUX, plug in the audio jack.
• The functions of the portable device are controlled using the device buttons. The
volume may be controlled using the radio or portable device.
• To route the audio cable out of the center console, use the access cut out in the
front of the console.
USB Port
• Connect your iPod® or compatible device using a USB cable into the USB Port.
USB Memory sticks with audio files can also be used. Then, audio from the device
can be played on the vehicles sound system while providing metadata (artist, track
title, album, etc.) information on the radio display.
• When connected, the iPod®/compatible USB device can be controlled using the
radio or Steering Wheel Audio Controls to play, skip to the next or previous track,
browse, and list the contents.
• The iPod® battery charges when plugged into the USB port (if supported by the
specific device).
• To route the USB/iPod® cable out of the center console, use the access cut out.
NOTE:
• When connecting your iPod® device for the first time, the system may take several
minutes to read your music, depending on the number of files. For example, the
system will take approximately five minutes for every 1000 songs loaded on the
device. Also during the reading process, the Shuffle and Browse functions will be
disabled. This process is needed to ensure the full use of your iPod® features and
only happens the first time it is connected. After the first time, the reading process
of your iPod® will take considerably less time unless changes are made or new
songs are added to the playlist.
• The USB port supports certain Mini, Classic, Nano, Touch, and iPhone® devices.
The USB port also supports playing music from compatible external USB Mass
Storage Class memory devices. Some iPod® software versions may not fully support
the USB port features. Please visit Apple’s website for iPod® software updates.
SD Card
• Play songs stored on an SD card inserted into the SD card slot.
• Song playback can be controlled using the radio or Steering Wheel Audio Controls
to play, skip to the next or previous track, browse, and list the contents.

SRT
PADDLE SHIFT MODE
• Paddle Shift Mode is a driver-interactive transmission feature that offers manual
gear shifting to provide you with more control of the vehicle. Paddle Shift Mode
allows you to maximize engine braking, eliminate undesirable upshifts and
downshifts, and improve overall vehicle performance.
• This system can also provide you with more control during passing, city driving, cold
slippery conditions, mountain driving, trailer towing, and many other situations.
• Refer to the Starting and Operating section of your vehicle’s Owner’s Manual on
the DVD for further details.
Paddle Shift Mode Operation
• When the shift lever is in the DRIVE position, the transmission will operate
automatically, shifting between the five available gears. To engage Paddle Shift
Mode, simply tap the shift lever to the right or left (+/-) while in the DRIVE position,
or tap one of the steering wheel-mounted shift paddles (+/-). Tapping (-) to enter
Paddle Shift Mode will downshift the transmission to the next lower gear, while
using (+) to enter Paddle Shift Mode will retain the current gear. When Paddle
Shift mode is active, the current transmission gear is displayed in the instrument
cluster. In Paddle Shift Mode, the transmission will shift up or down when (+/-) is
manually selected by the driver (using the shift lever, or the shift paddles), unless
an engine lugging or overspeed condition would result. It will remain in the
selected gear until another upshift or downshift is chosen, except as described
below:
• Normally, in Paddle Shift Mode, the transmission will automatically shift up
when maximum engine speed is reached. If, however, Paddle Shift Mode is
engaged while in SPORT mode, the transmission will remain in the selected gear
even when maximum engine speed is reached. The transmission will upshift
only when commanded by the driver.
• The transmission will automatically downshift as the vehicle slows (to prevent
engine lugging) and will display the current gear.
• The transmission will automatically downshift to first gear when coming to a
stop. After a stop, the driver should manually upshift (+) the transmission as the
vehicle is accelerated.
• You can start out in first or second gear. Tapping (+) (at a stop) will allow starting
in second gear. Starting out in second gear is helpful in snowy or icy conditions.
• The system will ignore attempts to upshift at too low of a vehicle speed.
• Avoid using speed control when Paddle Shift mode is engaged.
• Transmission shifting will be more noticeable when Paddle Shift Mode is
engaged.
• To disengage Paddle Shift Mode, hold the shift lever to the right or press and
hold the (+) shift paddle until “D” is once again displayed in the instrument
cluster. You can shift in or out of the Paddle Shift Mode at any time without
taking your foot off the accelerator pedal.

is not performed, extensive exhaust after-treatment damage can occur. Have your
vehicle serviced by your local authorized dealer.
CAUTION!
See your authorized dealer, as damage to the exhaust system could occur with the
exhaust filter full.
DIESEL EXHAUST FLUID
• Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) sometimes known simply by the name of its active
component, UREA—is a key component of selective catalytic reduction (SCR)
systems, which help diesel vehicles meet stringent emission regulations. DEF is a
liquid reducing agent that reacts with engine exhaust in the presence of a catalyst
to convert smog-forming nitrogen oxides (NOx) into harmless nitrogen and water
vapor.
• Your vehicle is equipped with a Selective Catalytic Reduction system in order to
meet the very stringent diesel emissions standards required by the Environmental
Protection Agency. Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) is the first and only
technology in decades to be as good for the environment as it is good for business
and vehicle performance.
• The purpose of the SCR system is to reduce levels of NOx (oxides of nitrogen
emitted from engines) that are harmful to our health and the environment to an
almost near-zero level. Small quantities of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) are injected
into the exhaust upstream of a catalyst where, when vaporized, convert smogforming nitrogen oxides (NOx) into harmless nitrogen (N2) and water vapor (H2O),
two natural components of the air we breathe. You can operate with the comfort
that your vehicle is contributing to a cleaner, healthier world environment for this
and generations to come.

System Overview
• This vehicle is equipped with a Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) injection system and
a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) catalyst to meet the emission requirements.
• The DEF injection system consists of the following components:
• DEF tank
• DEF pump
• DEF injector
• Electronically-heated DEF lines
• NOx sensors
• Temperature sensors
• SCR catalyst
• The DEF injection system and SCR catalyst enable the achievement of diesel
emissions requirements; while maintaining outstanding fuel economy, drivability,
torque and power ratings.
NOTE:
• Your vehicle is equipped with a DEF injection system. You may occasionally hear
an audible clicking noise. This is normal operation.
• The DEF pump will run for a period of time after engine shutdown to purge the DEF
system. This is normal operation.
Adding Diesel Exhaust Fluid
• The DEF gauge (located in the EVIC) will display the level of DEF remaining in the
tank.
• Completely fill the DEF tank through the diesel exhaust fluid fill location (located
behind the fuel door) at every maintenance interval or before if prompted by the
Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC).
NOTE:
Driving conditions (altitude, vehicle speed,
load, etc.) will effect the amount of DEF
that is used in your vehicle.
132
DIESEL
NOTE:
Since DEF will begin to freeze at 12°F (-11°C), your vehicle is equipped with an
automatic DEF heating system. This allows the DEF injection system to operate
properly at temperatures below 12°F (-11°C). If your vehicle is not in operation for an
extended period of time with temperatures below 12°F (-11°C), the DEF in the tank
may freeze. If the tank is overfilled and freezes, it could be damaged. Therefore, do
not overfill the DEF tank. Extra care should be taken when filling with portable
containers to avoid overfilling. Note the level of the DEF gauge in your EVIC. You may
safely add a maximum of 2 gallons of DEF from portable containers when your DEF
gauge is reading ½ full.

INSTRUMENT CLUSTER WARNING LIGHTS
- 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) which display in the Electronic Vehicle Information
Center (EVIC) when one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated.
Accordingly, when the low tire pressure EVIC display 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 EVIC display.
• 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.
135
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
• When the malfunction indicator is illuminated, the system may not be able to
detect or signal low tire pressure as intended. TPMS malfunctions may occur for a
variety of reasons, including the installation of replacement or alternate tires or
wheels on the vehicle that prevent the TPMS from functioning properly. Always
check the TPMS malfunction telltale after replacing one or more tires or wheels on
your vehicle, to ensure that the replacement or alternate tires and wheels allow the
TPMS to continue to function properly.
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.
— Seat Belt Reminder Light
• When the ignition switch is first turned to the ON/RUN position, this light will turn
on for four to eight seconds as a bulb check. During the bulb check, if the driver's
seat belt is unbuckled, a chime will sound. After the bulb check or when driving,
if the driver or front passenger seat belt remains unbuckled, the Seat Belt Indicator
Light will flash or remain on continuously. Refer to “Occupant Restraints” in
“Things To Know Before Starting Your Vehicle” for further information.
BRAKE - Brake Warning Light **
• This light monitors various brake functions, including brake fluid level and parking
brake application. If the brake light turns on it may indicate that the parking brake
is applied, that the brake fluid level is low, or that there is a problem with the
anti-lock brake system reservoir.
• If the light remains on when the parking brake has been disengaged, and the fluid
level is at the full mark on the master cylinder reservoir, it indicates a possible
brake hydraulic system malfunction or that a problem with the Brake Booster has
been detected by the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) / Electronic Stability Control
(ESC) system. In this case, the light will remain on until the condition has been
corrected. If the problem is related to the brake booster, the ABS pump will run
when applying the brake and a brake pedal pulsation may be felt during each stop.
136
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
• The dual brake system provides a reserve braking capacity in the event of a failure
to a portion of the hydraulic system. A leak in either half of the dual brake system
is indicated by the Brake Warning Light, which will turn on when the brake fluid
level in the master cylinder has dropped below a specified level.
• The light will remain on until the cause is corrected.
• Vehicles equipped with the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS), are also equipped with
Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD). In the event of an EBD failure, the
Brake Warning Light will turn on along with the ABS Light. Immediate repair to the
ABS system is required.
• Operation of the Brake Warning Light can be checked by turning the ignition
switch from the OFF position to the ON/RUN position. The light should illuminate
for approximately two seconds. The light should then turn off unless the parking
brake is applied or a brake fault is detected. If the light does not illuminate, have
the light inspected by an authorized dealer.
• The light also will turn on when the parking brake is applied with the ignition
switch in the ON/RUN position.
NOTE:
This light shows only that the parking brake is applied. It does not show the degree
of brake application.
WARNING!

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.

• The battery in your vehicle is located
under the passengers front seat. There
are remote locations under the hood to
assist in jump starting.
• Set the parking brake, shift the automatic transmission into PARK and turn
the ignition to LOCK.
• Turn off the heater, radio, and all unnecessary electrical accessories.
• Remove the protective cover over the
remote positive (+) battery post. Pull
upward on the cover to remove it.
• 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.
149
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
Jump-Starting Procedure
1. Connect the positive (+) end of the jumper cable to the remote 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 the remote negative (-)
post of the vehicle with the discharged battery.
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 remote negative (-) post of the
vehicle with the discharged battery.
7. Disconnect the negative end (-) of the jumper cable from the negative (-) post of
the booster battery.
8. Disconnect the opposite end of the positive (+) jumper cable from the positive (+)
post of the booster battery.
9. Disconnect the positive (+) end of the jumper cable from the remote positive (+)
post of the discharged vehicle.
10. Reinstall the protective cover over the remote positive (+) battery post of the
discharged vehicle.
NOTE:
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.
150
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
WARNING!
• When temperatures are below the freezing point, electrolyte in a discharged
battery may freeze. Do not attempt jump-starting because the battery could
rupture or explode and cause personal injury. Battery temperature must be
brought above the freezing point before attempting a jump-start.
• 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.
EMERGENCY TOW HOOKS
• If your vehicle is equipped with tow hooks, they are mounted in the front and the rear.
NOTE:
For off-road recovery, it is recommended to use both of the front tow hooks to minimize
the risk of damage to the vehicle.
CAUTION!
Tow hooks are for emergency use only, to rescue a vehicle stranded off-road. Do not
use tow hooks for tow truck hookup or highway towing. You could damage your
vehicle. Tow straps are recommended when towing the vehicle; chains may cause
vehicle damage.
WARNING!
• Chains are not recommended for freeing a stuck vehicle. Chains may break,
causing serious injury or death.
• Stand clear of vehicles when pulling with tow hooks. Tow straps may become
disengaged, causing serious injury.
151
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
MANUAL PARK RELEASE 8–SPEED
• In order to push or tow the vehicle in cases where the transmission will not shift
out of PARK (such as a dead battery), a Manual Park Release is available.
• Follow these steps to use the Manual Park Release:
• Open the center console and locate the Manual Park Release cover, remove it by
snapping the cover away from the console hinges.
• Using a screwdriver or similar tool, push the metal latch in towards the tether strap.
• While the metal latch is the open position, simultaneously pull upwards on the
tether strap until it clicks and releases out of the park position.
NOTE:
To prevent the vehicle from rolling unintentionally, firmly apply the parking brake.
• To Disengage the Manual Park Release Lever:
• To disengage the Manual Park Release apply tension upward while pushing the
release latch towards the tether to unlock the lever.
• Once the tension has been released and the lever has been unlocked be sure it is
stowed properly and locks into position.
NOTE:
Be sure to replace the cover by snapping it back in place.

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.
CAP-LESS FUEL FILL FUNNEL
• The funnel for the Cap-Less Fuel System is located on top of the spare tire. If your
vehicle is out of fuel and an auxiliary fuel can is needed, insert the funnel into the
filler neck and proceed to fill the vehicle.
153

MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE — GASOLINE ENGINE
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,
and E85 fuel usage will influence when the “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).
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” for further information
NOTE:
Under no circumstances should oil change intervals exceed 10,000 miles (16 000 km)
or twelve months, whichever comes first.

MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE — DIESEL ENGINE
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,
and Biodiesel fuel usage will influence when the “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).
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” 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 transmission as needed
• Check function of all interior and exterior lights

CAUTION!
• When installing the 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 integrated power module, and possibly result in a electrical system
failure.
• 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.
180
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, 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 (U.S.), www.mopar.ca
(Canada) 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.
