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 1-888-242-6342 (U.S.) or

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. FCA US 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.
This guide has been prepared to help you get quickly acquainted with
your new FIAT 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.) or your local FIAT Dealer.
DRIVING AND ALCOHOL: Drunken driving is one of the most
frequent causes of collisions.Your driving ability can be seriously impaired
with blood alcohol levels far below the legal minimum. If you are drinking,
don’t drive. Ride with a designated non-drinking driver, call a cab, a friend,
or use public transportation.
WARNING
Driving after drinking can lead to a collision.Your perceptions are less
sharp, your reflexes are slower, and your judgment is impaired when
you have been drinking. Never drink and then drive.
IMPORTANT: 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.) in electronic format.
We hope you find it useful. Replacement DVD kits may be
purchased by visiting www.techauthority.com.

INTRODUCTION/WELCOME
WELCOME FROM FIAT
Congratulations on selecting your new FIAT vehicle. Be assured that it represents precision workmanship, distinctive styling, and high quality - all essentials that are traditional to
our vehicles.
Your new FIAT 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. FCA US 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. 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.
We are 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 FCA US LLC shall be deemed to
be deleted and the name FCA Canada Inc. used in substitution (excluding legal lines).
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 leave children alone in a vehicle, or with access to an unlocked vehicle. Allowing children to be in a vehicle unattended is dangerous for a number of reasons.
A child or others could be seriously or fatally injured. Children should be warned not
to touch the parking brake, brake pedal or the shift lever/transmission gear selector.
• Do not leave the key fob in or near the vehicle, or in a location accessible to children, and do not leave the ignition of a vehicle equipped with Keyless Enter-N-Go™

GETTING STARTED
VEHICLE SECURITY ALARM
The Vehicle Security Alarm monitors the vehicle doors for unauthorized entry and the
Keyless Enter-N-Go™ START/STOP button for unauthorized operation. While the Vehicle
Security Alarm is armed, interior switches for door locks and decklid release are disabled.
If something triggers the alarm, the Vehicle Security Alarm will provide the following
audible and visible signals: the horn will pulse, the park lamps and/or turn signals will flash,
and the Vehicle Security Light in the instrument cluster will flash.
To Arm The System:
Push the Key Fob LOCK button.
To Disarm The System:
Push the Key Fob UNLOCK button or cycle the ignition to the ON/RUN position.
The Vehicle Security Alarm is designed to protect your vehicle. However, you can create
conditions where the Vehicle Security Alarm will give you a false alarm. If one of the
previously described arming sequences has occurred, the Vehicle Security Alarm will arm
regardless of whether you are in the vehicle or not. If you remain in the vehicle and
open a door, the alarm will sound. If this occurs, disarm the Vehicle Security Alarm.
If the Vehicle Security Alarm is armed and the battery becomes disconnected, the Vehicle
Security Alarm will remain armed when the battery is reconnected. The exterior lights
will flash, and the horn will sound. If this occurs, disarm the Vehicle Security Alarm.
POWER DOOR LOCKS
• Push the central LOCK/UNLOCK button located on the instrument panel, in the
switch bank below the radio. The button has an LED that indicates whether the doors
are locked or unlocked.
• LED ON: doors locked. Pushing the central LOCK/UNLOCK button once will unlock
all doors. The LED will switch off once the doors are unlocked.
• LED OFF: doors unlocked. Pushing the central LOCK/UNLOCK button once will lock
all doors. The LED will switch on once the doors are locked.
• Once the doors have been locked with the RKE transmitter, it will no longer be possible to unlock them by pushing central LOCK/UNLOCK button.
NOTE:
With central locking active (LED ON), opening one of the front doors, it is possible to
perform a central unlocking (LED OFF). With central locking active (LED ON), in order
to open one of the rear passenger doors, it is necessary pulling the internal door handle
twice. With one of the rear door open (LED OFF), the unlocking is performed only for
that door, not for all the vehicle.
9
GETTING STARTED
• To unlock the front doors, pull the inside door handle to the first detent. If the rear
doors are locked, you must pull the door handle once to unlock the door and pull the
door handle a second time to open the door.
CAUTION!
An unlocked vehicle is an invitation to thieves. Always remove the key from the ignition
and lock all of the doors when leaving the vehicle unattended.
WARNING!
• Do not leave children or animals inside parked vehicles in hot weather. Interior
heat build-up may cause serious injury or death.
• For personal security and safety in the event of an collision, lock the vehicle doors
as you drive as well as when you park and leave the vehicle.
• Before exiting a vehicle, always turn the vehicle OFF, apply the parking brake, shift
the Euro Twin Clutch transmission into PARK or the manual transmission into
REVERSE, and remove the Key Fob from the ignition. When leaving the vehicle,
always lock your vehicle.
• Never leave children alone in a vehicle, or with access to an unlocked vehicle.
• Allowing children to be in a vehicle unattended is dangerous for a number of
reasons. A child or others could be seriously or fatally injured. Children should be
warned not to touch the parking brake, brake pedal or the transmission gear
selector.
• Do not leave the Key Fob in or near the vehicle, or in a location accessible to
child. A child could operate power windows, other controls, or move the vehicle.
Doors Lock With One Or More Doors Open
• It is possible to lock the vehicle through the RKE, internal button or external key pawl,
or if one or more doors are open. At lock command request, LED is switched ON.
At closing of the last door, the vehicle maintains the central locking status if key is not
inserted in Ignition Device; otherwise the vehicle will be unlocked, and the LED will be
switched OFF.
NOTE:
If the key is not inserted in the ignition switch but is inside the vehicle, the system does
not recognize the presence of the key and after the closing of last door, the vehicle
remains locked.
10
GETTING STARTED
SEAT BELT SYSTEMS
Lap/Shoulder Belts
• All seating positions in your vehicle are equipped with lap/shoulder belts.
• Be sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and using a seat belt properly.
• Position the lap belt so that it is snug and lies low across your hips, below your abdomen. To remove slack in the lap belt portion, pull up 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 seat belt
reduces the risk of sliding under the seat belt in a collision.
• Position the shoulder belt across the shoulder and chest with minimal, if any slack so
that it is comfortable and not resting on your neck. The retractor will withdraw any
slack in the shoulder belt.
Seat Belt Pretensioner
• The front seat belt system is 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 properly buckled up. You can strike the interior of your vehicle or other
passengers, or you can be thrown out of the vehicle. Always be sure you and
others in your vehicle are buckled up properly.
• 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 seat 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 seat belt could rip apart in a collision and leave you with no
protection. Inspect the seat 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.
11
GETTING STARTED
SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM (SRS) — AIR BAGS
Air Bag System Components
Your vehicle may be equipped with the following air bag system components:
• Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC)
• Air Bag Warning Light
• Steering Wheel and Column
• Instrument Panel
• Knee Impact Bolsters
• Advanced Front Air Bags
• Supplemental Side Air Bags
• Supplemental Knee Air Bags
• Front and Side Impact Sensors
• Seat Belt Pretentioners
• Seat Belt Buckle Switch
• Seat Track Position Sensors
Advanced Front 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 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. Advanced Front Air Bags are not expected to reduce the risk of
injury in rear, side, or rollover collisions.
• The Advanced Front Air Bags will not deploy in all frontal collisions, including some that
may produce substantial vehicle damage — for example, some pole collisions, truck
underrides, and angle offset collisions.
• On the other hand, depending on the type and location of impact, Advanced Front Air
Bags may deploy in crashes with little vehicle front-end damage but that produce a
severe initial deceleration.
• Because air bag sensors measure vehicle deceleration over time, vehicle speed and damage
by themselves are not good indicators of whether or not an air bag should have deployed.
• Seat belts are necessary for your protection in all collisions, and also are needed to
help keep you in position, away from an inflating air bag.
• The air bags must be ready to inflate for your protection in a collision. The Occupant
Restraint Controller (ORC) monitors the internal circuits and interconnecting wiring
associated with air bag system electrical components.
• The ORC turns on the Air Bag Warning Light in the instrument panel for approximately four to eight seconds for a self-check when the ignition switch is first turned to
the ON/RUN position. After the self-check, the Air Bag Warning Light will turn off.
12
GETTING STARTED
If the ORC detects a malfunction in any part of the system, it turns on the Air Bag
Warning Light, either momentarily or continuously. A single chime will sound to alert
you if the light comes on again after initial startup.
• The ORC monitors the readiness of the electronic parts of the air bag system whenever the ignition switch is in the START or ON/RUN position. If the ignition switch is
in the OFF position or in the ACC position, the air bag system is not on and the air
bags will not inflate.
• If the Air Bag Warning Light in the instrument panel is not on during the four to eight seconds when the ignition switch is first turned to the ON/RUN position, stays on, or turns
on while driving, have the vehicle serviced by an authorized service center immediately.
NOTE:
If the speedometer, tachometer, or any engine related gauges are not working, the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) may also be disabled. In this condition the air bags may
not be ready to inflate for your protection. Have an authorized dealer service the air bag
system immediately.
• After any collision, the vehicle should be taken to an authorized dealer immediately.
• 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.
• If it is necessary to modify the air bag system for persons with disabilities, contact your
authorized dealer.
• Refer to “Supplemental Restraint System (SRS)” in “Things To Know Before Starting
Your Vehicle” in the Owner's Manual on the DVD for further information.
Supplemental Knee Air Bags
This vehicle is equipped with a Supplemental Driver Knee Air Bag mounted in the instrument panel below the steering column. The Supplemental Driver Knee Air Bag provides
enhanced protection during a frontal impact by working together with the seat belts,
pretensioners, and Advanced Front Air Bags.
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.
• No objects should be placed over or near the air bag on the instrument panel or
steering wheel because any such objects could cause harm if the vehicle is in a
collision severe enough to cause the air bag to inflate.
13
GETTING STARTED
Supplemental Side Air Bags
• This vehicle is equipped with Supplemental Seat-Mounted Side Air Bags (SABs) located
in the outboard side of the front seats. The SABs are marked with a SRS AIRBAG or
AIRBAG label sewn into the outboard side of the seats.
• This vehicle is equipped with Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtains (SABICs)
located above the side windows. The trim covering the SABICs is labeled SRS AIRBAG
or AIRBAG. The SABICs may help reduce the risk of partial or complete ejection of
vehicle occupants through side windows in certain side impact events.
• The SABICs and SABs (“Side Air Bags”) are designed to activate in certain side impacts
and certain rollover events (if equipped with rollover sensing). The Occupant Restraint
Controller (“ORC”) determines whether the deployment of the Side Air Bags in a
particular side impact or rollover event (if equipped with rollover sensing) is appropriate, based on the severity and type of collision. Vehicle damage by itself is not a good
indicator of whether or not Side Air Bags should have deployed.
WARNING!
• 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 Side Air Bags during deployment could cause you to be
severely injured or killed.
• Relying on the Side Air Bags alone could lead to more severe injuries in a collision.
The Side Air Bags work with your seat belt to restrain you properly. In some collisions, Side Air Bags won’t deploy at all. Always wear your seat belt even though
you have Side Air Bags.
• This vehicle is equipped with left and right Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable
Curtains (SABICs). Do not stack luggage or other cargo up high enough to block
the deployment of the SABICs. The trim covering above the side windows where
the SABIC and its deployment path are located should remain free from any
obstructions.
• This vehicle is equipped with SABICs. In order for the SABICs to work as intended, do not install any accessory items in your vehicle which could alter the
roof. Do not add an aftermarket sunroof to your vehicle. Do not add roof racks
that require permanent attachments (bolts or screws) for installation on the
vehicle roof. Do not drill into the roof of the vehicle for any reason.
• Do not use accessory seat covers or place objects between you and the Side Air
Bags; the performance could be adversely affected and/or objects could be pushed
into you, causing serious injury.
14
GETTING STARTED
CHILD RESTRAINTS
Children 12 years or younger should ride properly buckled up in a rear seat, if available.
According to crash statistics, children are safer when properly restrained in the rear seats
rather than in the front.
Every state in the United States and all Canadian provinces require that small children ride in
proper restraint systems. This is the law, and you can be prosecuted for ignoring it.
NOTE:
• For additional information, refer to www.Seatcheck.org or call 1-866-SEATCHECK
(1-866-732-8243 ).
• Canadian residents should refer to Transport Canada’s website for additional information: http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/motorvehiclesafety/safedrivers-childsafety-index-53.htm
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.
Latch Weight Limit
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).
Locating LATCH Anchorages
The lower anchorages are round bars
that are found at the rear of the seat cushion where it meets the seatback. They are
just visible when you lean into the rear seat
to install the child restraint.You will easily
feel them if you run your finger along the
gap between the seatback and seat cushion.

GETTING STARTED
Locating Tether Anchorages
In addition, there are tether strap
anchors located behind each rear seatback,
near the floor.
Tether Anchorage Locations
Center Seat LATCH
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.
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.
5. 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.
16
GETTING STARTED
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.
Tether Weight Limit
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.
Installing The Top Tether Strap (With Either Lower Anchors Or Vehicle
Seat Belt):
When installing a forward-facing child restraint, always secure the top tether strap, up to
the tether anchor weight limit, whether the child restraint is installed with the lower
anchors or the vehicle seat belt.
17
GETTING STARTED
Tether Anchorage Installation
1. Route the tether strap to provide the most direct path for the strap between the
anchor and the child seat.
2. 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.
Rear Seat Tether Strap Mounting
3. 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.
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.
• Only use a rearward-facing child restraint in a vehicle with a rear seat.
• 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.
• 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.

GETTING STARTED
HEAD RESTRAINTS
Head restraints are designed to reduce the risk of injury by restricting head movement in
the event of a rear-impact. Head restraints should be adjusted so that the top of the
head restraint is located above the top of your ear.
WARNING!
The head restraints for all occupants must be properly adjusted prior to operating the
vehicle or occupying a seat. Head restraints should never be adjusted while the vehicle
is in motion. Driving a vehicle with the head restraints improperly adjusted or removed
could cause serious injury or death in the event of a collision.
NOTE:
Do not reposition the head restraint 180 degrees to the incorrect position in an attempt
to gain additional clearance to the back of the head.
Reactive Head Restraints — Front Seats
The front driver and passenger seats are equipped with Reactive Head Restraints. In the
event of a rear impact the Reactive Head Restraints will automatically extend forward minimizing the gap between the back of the occupant's head and the Reactive Head Restraint.
To raise the head restraint, pull upward on the head restraint. To lower the head restraint, push the adjustment button located at the base of the head restraint, and push
downward on the head restraint.
To remove the head restraint, raise it as far as it can go then push the adjustment button,
and the release button at the base of each post while pulling the head restraint up. To reinstall the head restraint, put the head restraint posts into the holes and push downward.
Then adjust it to the appropriate height.
The Reactive Head Restraints will automatically return to their normal position following a
rear impact. If the Reactive Head Restraints do not return to their normal position, see
your authorized dealership immediately.

• ALL the head restraints MUST be reinstalled in the vehicle to properly protect
the occupants. Follow the re-installation instructions above prior to operating the
vehicle or occupying a seat.
• Do not place items over the top of the Active Head Restraint, such as coats, seat
covers or portable DVD players. These items may interfere with the operation of
the Reactive Head Restraint in the event of a collision and could result in serious
injury or death.
Rear Head Restraints
The rear seats are equipped with adjustable head restraints, the outboard head restraints
have two comfort positions, while the central head restraint have to use in the raised
position. When there are no occupants in the center seat, the head restraint can be
lowered for maximum visibility for the driver. When the center seat is being occupied,
the head restraint has to be in the raised position.

24
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. Refer to “Maintaining Your Vehicle,” for the recommended viscosity and quality grades.
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 an engine problem or malfunction.
CAUTION!
Never use Non-Detergent Oil or Straight Mineral Oil in the engine or damage may
result.

POWER SUNROOF
The sunroof has two glass panels (the front one is operational and the rear one fixed)
and is equipped with an electrically operated sun blind.
The power sunroof and the power sun blind can be operated only with the ignition key
turned to the ON/RUN position.
The power sunroof and power sun blind switches are located in the overhead console.
WARNING!
• Never leave children alone in a vehicle, or with access to an unlocked vehicle.
Never leave the Key Fob in or near the vehicle or in a location accessible to children. Occupants, particularly unattended children, can become entrapped by the
power sunroof while operating the power sunroof switch. Such entrapment may
result in serious injury or death.
• In a collision, there is greater risk of being thrown from a vehicle with an open
sunroof. You could also be seriously injured or killed. Always fasten your seat belt
properly and make sure all passengers are properly secured too.
• Do not allow small children to operate the sunroof. Never allow your fingers, other
body parts, or any object to project through the sunroof opening. Injury may result.
To Open
• Pull the power sunroof switch for approximately one second and the sunroof will stop
at the vented position. Pull the power sunroof switch a second time for approximately

Wind Buffeting
Wind buffeting can be described as the perception of pressure on the ears or a
helicopter-type sound in the ears. Your vehicle may exhibit wind buffeting with the
windows down, or the sunroof (if equipped) in certain open or partially open positions.
This is a normal occurrence and can be minimized. If the buffeting occurs with the rear
windows open, open the front and rear windows together to minimize the buffeting.
If the buffeting occurs with the sunroof open, adjust the sunroof opening to minimize
the buffeting or open any window.
Power Sun Blind
• Pull the power sun blind switch and the blind will move towards the rear part of the
car, until it is fully open.
With the blind fully open pull the power sun blind switch and the blind will move

NOTE:
During the automatic opening and closing stages, if the power sun blind switch is pulled
again it will stop the blind movement.
EURO TWIN CLUTCH SIX-SPEED TRANSMISSION
• This vehicle may be equipped with a fuel efficient Euro Twin Clutch Six Speed Transmission. This transmission offers a sportier driving experience with faster AutoStick
shifting.
• During low-speed driving conditions in first gear, vehicle momentum changes may feel
exaggerated in response to changes in accelerator pedal position. This behavior is normal and is similar to vehicles equipped with a manual transmission.
NOTE:
• Very aggressive driving may result in some clutch odor similar to a manual transmission.
An active warning message will display in the Instrument Cluster if cool down actions
are needed.
• The first few shifts on a new vehicle may be somewhat abrupt. This is a normal
condition, and precision shifts will develop within a few hundred miles (kilometers).
• At low speeds you may hear mechanical noises similar to a manual transmission as
the transmission changes gears. These noises are normal and will not damage the
transmission.
• Before and after the engine is started, you may hear a hydraulic pump for a short
period of time. This noise is normal and will not damage the transmission.
33
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
Shifting The Transmission
• The transmission shift lever position (PRND) is displayed both on the shift lever and in
the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC).
• To drive, depress the brake pedal, press the button on the front of the shift lever and
move the shift lever from PARK or NEUTRAL to the DRIVE position.
• Manual shifts can also be made using the AutoStick shift control.
• This transmission is programmed to prevent shifting from REVERSE to DRIVE or
DRIVE to REVERSE, if vehicle speed is above 6 mph (10 km/h). This safety feature
helps protect your transmission from damage.
NOTE:
• When stopped on an incline, it is recommended that you always hold the vehicle in
place using the brakes. On steep inclines, Hill Start Assist (HSA) will temporarily hold
the car in position when the brake pedal is released. If the accelerator pedal is not
applied after a short time, the car will roll back. Either reapply the brake (to hold the
vehicle) or press the accelerator to climb the hill.
• During acceleration, gear changes will feel smooth compared to a vehicle with a traditional manual transmission. This is a benefit of the Euro Twin Clutch Transmission
design that avoids power loss during up-shifts.
Instrument Cluster Messages
Messages will be displayed in the instrument cluster to alert the driver when certain
unusual conditions occur. These messages are described below.

OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL (ESC)
This system enhances directional control and stability of the vehicle under various driving
conditions.
ESC uses sensors in the vehicle to determine the vehicle path intended by the driver and
compares it to the actual path of the vehicle. When the actual path does not match the
intended path, ESC applies the brake of the appropriate wheel to assist in counteracting
the oversteer or understeer condition.
ESC Operating Modes
The ESC system has two available operating modes:
Full On
This is the normal operating mode for ESC. Whenever the vehicle is started the system
will be in this mode. This mode should be used for most driving situations. ESC should
only be turned to “Partial Off” for specific reasons as noted.
Partial Off
• The “ESC OFF” button is located in the switch bank above the climate control.
To enter the “Partial Off” mode, momentarily press the “ESC OFF” button and the
“ESC Activation/Malfunction Indicator Light” will illuminate. To turn the ESC on again,
momentarily press the “ESC OFF” button and the “ESC Activation/Malfunction Indicator Light” will turn off. This will restore the normal “ESC On” mode of operation.
NOTE:
To improve the vehicle’s traction when
driving with snow chains, or when starting
off in deep snow, sand, or gravel, it may be
desirable to switch to the “Partial Off”
mode by momentarily pressing the “ESC
OFF” button. Once the situation requiring
“Partial Off” mode is overcome, turn ESC
back on by momentarily pressing the “ESC
OFF” button. This may be done while the
vehicle is in motion.

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

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.
• Press the MEDIA button, press “Select

ELECTRONICS
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 1,000 songs loaded on the device.
Also during the reading process, the Shuffle and Browse functions will be disabled. This
process ensures 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 play list.
• 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.

WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
– Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Light
Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked monthly when cold and
inflated to the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the
vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label. (If your vehicle has tires of a different size
than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label, you should
determine the proper tire inflation pressure for those tires).
As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or more of your
tires is significantly under-inflated. Accordingly, when the low tire pressure telltale illuminates, you should stop and check your tires as soon as possible and inflate them to the
proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to overheat
and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire tread life
and may affect the vehicle’s handling and stopping ability.
IF THE LIGHT STARTS FLASHING INDICATING A LOW TIRE PRESSURE, ADJUST THE
AIR PRESSURE IN THE LOW TIRE TO THE AIR PRESSURE SHOWN ON THE VEHICLE
PLACARD OR TIRE INFLATION PRESSURE LABEL LOCATED ON THE DRIVER'S DOOR.
NOTE:
AFTER INFLATION, THE VEHICLE MAY NEED TO BE DRIVEN FOR 20 MINUTES
BEFORE THE FLASHING LIGHT WILL TURN OFF.
Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the
driver’s responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not
reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale.
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 upon subsequent vehicle start-ups 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.
91
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
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.
WARNING!
A hot engine cooling system is dangerous. You or others could be badly burned by
steam or boiling coolant.
– 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 “Seat Belt Systems” in “Things To Know Before Starting”
in your Owner’s Manual on the DVD for further information.
– 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.
92
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
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.
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!
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.
93
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
– Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL)
Certain conditions, such as a loose or missing gas cap, poor fuel quality, etc., may illuminate the MIL after engine start. The vehicle should be serviced if the light stays on
through several typical driving cycles. In most situations, the vehicle will drive normally and
not require towing.
If the MIL flashes when the engine is running, serious conditions may exist that could lead
to immediate loss of power or severe catalytic converter damage. We recommend you
do not operate the vehicle. Have the vehicle serviced immediately.
- Electronic Stability Control (ESC) Activation / Malfunction
Indicator Light
The “ESC Activation/Malfunction Indicator Light” in the instrument cluster will come on
for four seconds when the ignition switch is turned to the ON/RUN position. 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, see your authorized dealer as soon as possible to have the problem diagnosed and corrected.
NOTE:
• The “ESC Off Indicator Light” and the “ESC Activation/Malfunction Indicator Light”
come on momentarily each time the ignition switch is turned to ON/RUN.
• Each time the ignition is turned to ON/RUN, the ESC system will be ON even if it
was turned off previously.
• ESC Activation/Malfunction Light can blink during a ESC or TC intervention.
- Generic Warning Light
The Generic Warning Light will illuminate if any of the following conditions occur: Oil
Change Request, Engine Oil Pressure Sensor Failure, External Light Failure, Fuel Cut-Off
Not Available, Parking Sensor Failure, DST System Failure.
– Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) Indicator Light
This light informs you of a problem with the 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 dealer 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.

96
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 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, 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, turn the engine off immediately and call for service.
WARNING!
You or others can be badly burned by hot engine coolant (antifreeze) or steam from
your radiator. If you see or hear steam coming from under the hood, do not open the
hood until the radiator has had time to cool. Never try to open a cooling system pressure cap when the radiator or coolant bottle is hot.

WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
Tire Service Kit Usage Precautions
• Replace the Tire Service Kit Sealant Bottle (1) and Sealant Hose (6) prior to the expiration date (printed on the bottle label) to assure optimum operation of the system.
Refer to “Sealing A Tire With Tire Service Kit” section (F) “Sealant Bottle and Hose
Replacement.”
• The Sealant Bottle (1) and Sealant Hose (6) are a one tire application use. After each
use, always replace these components immediately at an authorized dealer.
• When the Tire Service Kit sealant is in a liquid form, clean water, and a damp cloth will
remove the material from the vehicle or tire and wheel components. Once the sealant
dries, it can easily be peeled off and properly discarded.
• For optimum performance, make sure the valve stem on the wheel is free of debris
before connecting the Tire Service Kit.
• You can use the Tire Service Kit air pump to inflate bicycle tires. The kit also comes
with two needles, located in the Accessory Storage Compartment (on the bottom of
the air pump) for inflating sport balls, rafts, or similar inflatable items. However, use
only the Air Pump Hose (7) and make sure the Mode Select Knob (5) is in the Air
Mode when inflating such items to avoid injecting sealant into them. The Tire Service
Kit Sealant is only intended to seal punctures less than 1/4 inch (6 mm) diameter in
the tread of your vehicle.
• Do not lift or carry the Tire Service Kit by the hoses.
Sealing A Tire With Tire Service Kit
(A) Whenever You Stop To Use Tire Service Kit:
1. Pull over to a safe location and turn on the vehicle’s Hazard Warning flashers.
2. Verify that the valve stem (on the wheel with the deflated tire) is in a position that is
near to the ground. This will allow the Tire Service Kit Hoses (6) and (7) to reach the
valve stem and keep the Tire Service Kit flat on the ground. This will provide the best
positioning of the kit when injecting the sealant into the deflated tire and running
the air pump. Move the vehicle as necessary to place the valve stem in this position
before proceeding.

116
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
FREEING A STUCK VEHICLE
If your vehicle becomes stuck in mud, sand or snow, it can often be moved by a rocking
motion. Turn your steering wheel right and left to clear the area around the front
wheels. Then shift back and forth between DRIVE/2nd gear and REVERSE. Using minimal
accelerator pedal pressure to maintain the rocking motion, without spinning the wheels, is
most effective.
NOTE:
If your vehicle is equipped with Traction Control or Electronic Stability Control (ESC),
turn the system OFF before attempting to “rock” the vehicle.
CAUTION!
• Racing the engine or spinning the wheels may lead to transmission overheating and
failure. Allow the engine to idle with the shift lever in NEUTRAL for at least one
minute after every five rocking-motion cycles. This will minimize overheating and
reduce the risk of clutch or transmission failure during prolonged efforts to free a
stuck vehicle.
• When “rocking” a stuck vehicle by moving between DRIVE/2nd and REVERSE,
do not spin the wheels faster than 15 mph (24 km/h), or drivetrain damage may
result.
• Revving the engine or spinning the wheels too fast may lead to transmission overheating and failure. It can also damage the tires. Do not spin the wheels above
30 mph (48 km/h) while in gear (no transmission shifting occurring).
WARNING!
Fast spinning tires can be dangerous. Forces generated by excessive wheel speeds may
cause damage, or even failure, of the axle and tires. A tire could explode and injure
someone. Do not spin your vehicle's wheels faster than 30 mph (48 km/h) or for longer than 30 seconds continuously without stopping when you are stuck and do not let
anyone near a spinning wheel, no matter what the speed.
117
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 is recorded by your vehicle only if a non-trivial crash situation occurs; no data
is recorded by the EDR under normal driving conditions and no personal data (e.g.
name, gender, age, and crash location) is recorded. However, other parties, such as law
enforcement, could combine the EDR data with the type of personally identifying data
routinely acquired during a crash investigation.
To read data recorded by an EDR, special equipment is required, and access to the vehicle or the EDR is needed. In addition to the vehicle manufacturer, other parties such as
law enforcement, that have the special equipment, can read the information if they have
access to the vehicle or the EDR.
CAP-LESS FUEL FILL FUNNEL
• The funnel for the Cap-Less Fuel System is located in the rear cargo area behind the
rear seat. 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.
• For more information on the Cap-Less Fuel Fill Funnel refer to “Adding Fuel” in “Operating Your Vehicle” in this manual.

MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
TIRE PRESSURES
• Check the inflation pressure of each 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.
131
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
SPARE TIRES — IF EQUIPPED
NOTE:
For vehicles equipped with Tire Service Kit instead of a spare tire, please refer to “Tire
Service Kit” in “What To Do In Emergencies” on your DVD for further information.
CAUTION!
Because of the reduced ground clearance, do not take your vehicle through an automatic car wash with a compact or limited-use temporary spare installed. Damage to
the vehicle may result.
Spare Tire Matching Original Equipped Tire And Wheel — If Equipped
Your vehicle may be equipped with a spare tire and wheel equivalent in look and function to the original equipment tire and wheel found on the front or rear axle of your
vehicle. This spare tire may be used in the tire rotation for your vehicle. If your vehicle
has this option, refer to an authorized tire dealer for the recommended tire rotation
pattern.
Compact Spare Tire — If Equipped
The compact spare is for temporary emergency use only. You can identify if your vehicle
is equipped with a compact spare by looking at the spare tire description on the Tire and
Loading Information Placard located on the driver’s side door opening or on the sidewall
of the tire. Compact spare tire descriptions begin with the letter “T” or “S” preceding
the size designation. Example: T145/80D18 103M.
T, S = Temporary Spare Tire
Since this tire has limited tread life, the original equipment tire should be repaired
(or replaced) and reinstalled on your vehicle at the first opportunity.
Do not install a wheel cover or attempt to mount a conventional tire on the compact
spare wheel, since the wheel is designed specifically for the compact spare tire. Do not
install more than one compact spare tire and wheel on the vehicle at any given time.
WARNING!
Compact spares are for temporary emergency use only. With these spares, do not drive
more than 50 mph (80 km/h). Temporary use spares have limited tread life. When the
tread is worn to the tread wear indicators, the temporary use spare tire needs to be
replaced. Be sure to follow the warnings, which apply to your spare. Failure to do so
could result in spare tire failure and loss of vehicle control.
132
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
Full Size Spare — If Equipped
The full size spare is for temporary emergency use only. This tire may look like the originally equipped tire on the front or rear axle of your vehicle, but it is not. This spare tire
may have limited tread life. When the tread is worn to the tread wear indicators, the
temporary use full size spare tire needs to be replaced. Since it is not the same as your
original equipment tire, replace (or repair) the original equipment tire and reinstall on the
vehicle at the first opportunity.
Limited-Use Spare — If Equipped
The limited-use spare tire is for temporary emergency use only. This tire is identified by a
label located on the limited-use spare wheel. This label contains the driving limitations for
this spare. This tire may look like the original equipped tire on the front or rear axle of
your vehicle, but it is not. Installation of this limited-use spare tire affects vehicle handling.
Since it is not the same as your original equipment tire, replace (or repair) the original
equipment tire and reinstall on the vehicle at the first opportunity.
WARNING!
Limited-use spares are for emergency use only. Installation of this limited-use spare tire
affects vehicle handling. With this tire, do not drive more than the speed listed on the
limit-use spare wheel. Keep inflated to the cold tire inflation pressures listed on your
Tire and Loading Information Placard located on the driver’s side B-Pillar or the rear
edge of the driver’s side door. Replace (or repair) the original equipment tire at the
first opportunity and reinstall it on your vehicle. Failure to do so could result 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 a 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.

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 1-888-242-6342 (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. FCA US 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.
This guide has been prepared to help you get quickly acquainted with
your new FIAT 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.) or your local FIAT Dealer.
DRIVING AND ALCOHOL: Drunken driving is one of the most
frequent causes of collisions.Your driving ability can be seriously impaired
with blood alcohol levels far below the legal minimum. If you are drinking,
don’t drive. Ride with a designated non-drinking driver, call a cab, a friend,
or use public transportation.
WARNING
Driving after drinking can lead to a collision.Your perceptions are less
sharp, your reflexes are slower, and your judgment is impaired when
you have been drinking. Never drink and then drive.
IMPORTANT: 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.) in electronic format.
We hope you find it useful. Replacement DVD kits may be
purchased by visiting www.techauthority.com.
