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 1-800-423-6343 (U.S.) or 1-800-387-1143 (Canada)
or by contacting your dealer.
The driver’s primary responsibility is the safe operation of the vehicle. Driving while
distracted can result in loss of vehicle control, resulting in a collision and personal injury.
Chrysler Group LLC strongly recommends that the driver use extreme caution when using any
device or feature that may take their attention off the road. Use of any electrical devices such
as cell phones, computers, portable radios, vehicle navigation or other devices by the driver while
the vehicle is moving is dangerous and could lead to a serious collision. Texting while driving is
also dangerous and should never be done while the vehicle is moving. If you find yourself unable
to devote your full attention to vehicle operation, pull off the road to a safe location and stop your
vehicle. Some States or Provinces prohibit the use of cellular telephones or texting while driving.
It is always the driver’s responsibility to comply with all local laws.
DRIVING AND ALCOHOL
Drunken driving is one of the most frequent causes of accidents. 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 an accident. 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® Touchscreen 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.

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/gear selector.
Never use the ‘PARK’ position as a substitute for the parking brake. Always apply the
parking brake fully when parked to guard against vehicle movement and possible
injury or damage.
Refer to your Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details.
USE OF AFTERMARKET PRODUCTS (ELECTRONICS)
The use of aftermarket devices including cell phones, MP3 players, GPS systems, or
chargers may affect the performance of on-board wireless features including Keyless
Enter-N-Go™ and Remote Start range. If you are experiencing difficulties with any of your
wireless features, try disconnecting your aftermarket devices to see if the situation improves. If your symptoms persist, please see an authorized dealer.

cycled to the ON/RUN position.
The vehicle must be cycled to the ON/RUN position after two consecutive timeouts.
WARNING!
•
•
Do not start or run an engine in a closed garage or confined area. Exhaust gas
contains Carbon Monoxide (CO) which is odorless and colorless. Carbon Monoxide is
poisonous and can cause you or others to be severely injured or killed when inhaled.
Keep Key Fob transmitters away from children. Operation of the Remote Start
System, windows, door locks or other controls could cause you and others to be
severely injured or killed.
KEYLESS ENTER-N-GO™
The Keyless Enter-N-Go™ system is an enhancement to the vehicle's Key Fob. This feature
allows you to lock and unlock the vehicle's door(s) and trunk without having to press the Key
Fob lock or unlock buttons, as well as starting and stopping the vehicle with the press of a
button.
To Unlock From The Driver Or Passenger Side:
• With a valid Keyless Enter-N-Go™ Key Fob
located outside the vehicle and within 5 ft
(1.5 m) of the driver or passenger side door
handle, lift either front door handle to unlock the door automatically.
To Lock The Vehicle
• Both front door handles have LOCK buttons located on the outside of the handle.
With one of the vehicle's Keyless Enter-NGo™ Key Fobs located outside the vehicle
and within 5 ft (1.5 m) of the driver's or
passenger front door handle, press the door handle LOCK button to lock all four doors and
trunk.
10
GETTING STARTED
• DO NOT grab the door handle, when pressing the door handle lock button. This could
unlock the door(s).
NOTE:
• If “Unlock All Doors 1st Press” is programmed all doors will unlock when you grab hold of
the front driver's door handle. To select between “Unlock Driver Door 1st Press” and
“Unlock All Doors 1st Press”, refer to the Uconnect® Settings in your vehicle's Owner's
Manual on the DVD or Programmable Features in this guide for further information.
• If a Key Fob is detected in the vehicle when locking the vehicle using the power door lock
switch, the doors will unlock and the horn will chirp three times. On the third attempt, your
Key Fob can be locked inside the vehicle.
• After pressing the Keyless Enter-N-Go™ LOCK button, you must wait two seconds before
you can lock or unlock the vehicle using the door handle. This is done to allow you to
check if the vehicle is locked by pulling the door handle, without the vehicle reacting and
unlocking.
• If a Keyless Enter-N-Go™ door handle has not been used for 72 hours, the Keyless
Enter-N-Go™ feature for that handle may time out. Pulling the deactivated front door
handle will reactivate the door handle's Keyless Enter-N-Go™ feature.

GETTING STARTED
TRUNK LOCK AND RELEASE
• The trunk lid can be released from inside the vehicle by pressing the TRUNK RELEASE
button located on the instrument panel to the left of the steering wheel.
NOTE:
The transmission must be in PARK before the button will operate.
• The trunk lid can be released from outside the vehicle by pressing the TRUNK button on
the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter twice within five seconds.
• With the ignition in the ON/RUN position, the Trunk Open symbol will display in the
instrument cluster indicating that the trunk is open. The odometer display will reappear
once the trunk is closed.
• With the ignition in the OFF position or the key removed from the ignition switch, the
Trunk Open symbol will display until the trunk is closed.
• Refer to your Owner's Manual on the DVD for further information on trunk operation with
the Passive Entry feature.
Trunk Emergency Release
• As a security measure, a Trunk Internal Emergency Release lever is built into the trunk
latching mechanism. In the event of an individual being locked inside the trunk, the trunk
can be simply opened by pulling on the glow-in-the-dark handle attached to the trunk
latching mechanism.
WARNING!
Do not allow children to have access to the trunk, either by climbing into the trunk from
outside, or through the inside of the vehicle. Always close the trunk lid when your vehicle
is unattended. Once in the trunk, young children may not be able to escape, even if they
entered through the rear seat. If trapped in the trunk, children can die from suffocation or
heat stroke.
VEHICLE SECURITY 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.
14
GETTING STARTED
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.
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.

GETTING STARTED
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 AIRBAG are
embossed on the air bag covers. In addition, the vehicle is equipped with a Supplemental
Driver Side Knee Air Bag mounted in the instrument panel below the steering column.
• The Advanced Front Air Bags have a multistage inflator design. This allows the air bag to
have different rates of inflation based on several factors, including the severity and type
of collision.
• This vehicle may be equipped with driver and/or front passenger seat track position
sensors that may adjust the inflation rate of the Advanced Front Air Bags based upon
seat position.
• This vehicle may be equipped with a driver and/or front passenger seat belt buckle switch
that detects whether the driver or front passenger seat belt is fastened. The seat belt
buckle switch may adjust the inflation rate of the Advanced Front Air Bags.
• This vehicle may be equipped with Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtains (SABIC)
to protect the driver, front, and rear passengers sitting next to a window. The SABIC air
bags are located above the side windows and their covers are labeled: AIRBAG.

• If the Air Bag Warning Light
driving, have the vehicle serviced by an authorized service center immediately.
• Refer to the Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details regarding the Supplemental
Restraint System (SRS).
NOTE:
The Air Bag System is designed to be maintenance free.
16
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 SeatMounted 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 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).

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.
Lower Anchors
• All rear seating positions have lower anchors and top tether anchors.
Tether Anchors
LATCH System 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).
18
GETTING STARTED
Locating LATCH Anchorages
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
the gap between the seatback and seat
cushion.
LATCH Lower Anchors
Locating Tether Anchorages
In addition, there are tether strap anchorages behind each rear seating position located in the panel between the rear seatback and the rear window. These tether strap
anchorages are under a plastic cover with
the tether anchorage symbol
on it.
Tether Anchorages
Center Seat LATCH
If a child restraint installed in the center position blocks the seat belt webbing or buckle for
the outboard position, do not use that outboard position. If a child seat in the center
position blocks the outboard LATCH anchors or seat belt, do not install a child seat in that
outboard position.
19
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.
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.
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 Anchorage 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.
20
GETTING STARTED
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.
Tether Strap Installation
1. Rotate or lift the cover to access the anchor directly behind the seat where you are
placing the child restraint.
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. 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.

22
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.
Never place a rear-facing child restraint in front of an air bag. A deploying Passenger
Advanced Front Air Bag can cause death or serious injury to a child 12 years or
younger, including a child in a rear-facing child restraint.
Only use a rear-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.

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

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.
Off
Changing the FCW status to “Off” prevents the system from warning you of a potential
frontal collision.
NOTE:
• If FCW is set to “Off”, “FCW OFF” will be displayed in the EVIC.
• Refer to the Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details.

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 may 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.

OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
Autostick® (3.6L 8–Speed Transmission, If Equipped)
• Autostick® is only available on vehicles
equipped with SPORT mode.
• When the transmission is in DRIVE, it will
operate automatically, shifting between
the eight available gears. While in SPORT
mode, the transmission will only shift between seven of the eight available gears.
• To engage AutoStick®, simply tap one of
the steering wheel-mounted shift
paddles (+/-).
• In AutoStick® mode, the transmission will
only shift up or down when (+/-) is manually selected by the driver, except as described below. It will remain in the selected gear until another upshift or
downshift is chosen.
• When AutoStick® is active, the current transmission gear is displayed in the EVIC.
• If AutoStick® is engaged while in DRIVE mode, lack of accelerator pedal activity will
cause the transmission to revert to automatic operation. The transmission will also
upshift automatically once redline, (where the tachometer needle points to the red
portion of the gauge) is reached. If the accelerator is pressed to the floor, the transmission will downshift when possible (based on current vehicle speed and gear).
• When AutoStick® is used in SPORT mode, the transmission will only shift up or down
when commanded by the driver, except as noted below.
• In either DRIVE or SPORT mode, the transmission will automatically downshift as the
vehicle slows to a stop (to prevent engine lugging) and will display the current gear.
Tapping the (+) paddle (at a stop) will allow starting in second gear. After a stop, the driver
should manually upshift (+) the transmission as the vehicle accelerates.
NOTE:
To disengage AutoStick® mode, press and hold the (+) shift paddle until “D” or “S” is once
again displayed in the EVIC. You can shift in or out of the AutoStick® mode at any time
without taking your foot off the accelerator pedal.

AUTOSTICK®
Steering Wheel Mounted Paddle Shifters Or Console Mounted Shifter
• AutoStick® is a driver-interactive transmission feature that offers manual gear
shifting to provide you with more control
of the vehicle. AutoStick® allows you to
maximize engine braking, 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.
Operation
• When the shift lever is in the DRIVE position, the transmission will operate automatically, shifting between the five available gears. To engage AutoStick®, simply move
the shift lever to the right or left (+/-) while in the DRIVE position, or press one of the
steering wheel mounted shift paddles (+/-). When AutoStick® is active, the current
transmission gear is displayed in the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) portion of the instrument cluster. In AutoStick® mode, the transmission will shift when
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:
• 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.
• 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.
• Transmission shifting will be more noticeable when AutoStick® is engaged. To disengage AutoStick® 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 AutoStick® mode at any time without taking your foot off the accelerator
pedal.

ELECTRONIC CONTROL DAMPING SYSTEM
• This vehicle may be equipped with an electronic controlled damping system. This
system reduces body roll and pitch in many driving situations including cornering,
acceleration and braking. There are three modes of operation:
Automatic (Auto) Mode
• This is the default position when vehicle
ignition is first turned on. This mode will
give a sporty, but comfortable ride. Within
this mode, the suspension will adapt to
the vehicle inputs, including vehicle
speed, steering inputs, braking, and acceleration.
• If AutoStick® is engaged while in “Auto”
mode, the transmission will automatically shift up if maximum engine speed is
reached.
• Heavily pressing the accelerator pedal
may generate an automatic downshift for improved acceleration.
• This mode should be used for most driving situations.
Sport Mode SPORT
• This mode is driver selectable when the
vehicle is placed in SPORT mode (press
the CONTROLS button and then the
SPORT button on the display screen). This
mode will set suspension for maximum
performance handling and is intended for
spirited driving.
• When SPORT mode is enabled, a flag will
light up in the instrument cluster.
NOTE:
The SPORT setting will provide a firmer ride.
83
SRT
Track Mode
• In track mode, the transmission has a
sportier, more aggressive shift pattern.
• This mode includes SPORT Suspension
and affects transmission shifting in either normal Drive or Autostick®.
• If Autostick® (console shifter or paddle
shifters) is engaged while in “Track”
mode, the transmission will remain in the
selected gear even when maximum engine speed is reached. Engine overspeed
protection is achieved through fuel cut off
at or near redline.
• This mode will provide aggressive shifting and is intended for spirited driving.
• The system will return to SPORT mode when the ignition switch is cycled from RUN to
OFF, and back to RUN again, if this mode is selected.

INSTRUMENT CLUSTER WARNING LIGHTS
- Electronic Stability Control (ESC) Activation/Malfunction
Indicator Light
The “ESC Activation/Malfunction Indicator Light” in the instrument cluster will come on
when the ignition switch is turned to the ON/RUN position. It should go out with the engine
running. If the “ESC Activation/Malfunction Indicator Light” comes on continuously with
the engine running, a malfunction has been detected in the ESC system.
If this light remains on after several ignition cycles, and the vehicle has been driven several
miles (kilometers) at speeds greater than 30 mph (48 km/h), we recommend you drive to the
nearest service center and have the vehicle serviced immediately.
- 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.
88
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
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.
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.

WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
Resetting The Light After Servicing
Vehicles Equipped With Keyless Enter-N-Go™
• Without pressing the brake pedal, push the ENGINE START/STOP button and cycle the
ignition to the ON/RUN position (do not start the engine.)
• Fully depress the accelerator pedal, slowly, three times within 10 seconds.
• Without pressing the brake pedal, push the ENGINE START/STOP button once to return
the ignition to the OFF/LOCK position.
Vehicles Not Equipped With Keyless Enter-N-Go™
• Turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN position (do not start the engine.)
• Fully depress the accelerator pedal, slowly, three times within 10 seconds.
• Turn the ignition switch to the OFF/LOCK position.
NOTE:
If the indicator message illuminates when you start the vehicle, the oil change indicator
system did not reset. If necessary, repeat this procedure.
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 the transmission to 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.

TIREFIT Usage Precautions
• Replace the TIREFIT 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 TIREFIT” 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 TIREFIT 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 TIREFIT kit.
• You can use the TIREFIT 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 TIREFIT Sealant is only intended to seal
punctures less than 1/4” (6 mm) diameter in the tread of your vehicle.
• Do not lift or carry the TIREFIT kit by the hoses.
Sealing A Tire With TIREFIT
(A) Whenever You Stop To Use TIREFIT:
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 TIREFIT Hoses (6) and (7) to reach the valve stem and
keep the TIREFIT 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.
3. Place the transmission in PARK (auto transmission) or in Gear (manual transmission)
and cycle the ignition to the OFF position.
4. Set the parking brake.
(B) Setting Up To Use TIREFIT:
1. Turn the Mode Select Knob (5) to the Sealant Mode position.
2. Uncoil the Sealant Hose (6) and then remove the cap from the fitting at the end of the

BATTERY LOCATION
The battery is stored under an access cover in the trunk. Remote battery posts are located
on the right side of the engine compartment for jump-starting.
104
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
JUMP-STARTING
If your vehicle has a discharged battery it can be jump-started using a set of jumper cables
and a battery in another vehicle or by using a portable battery booster pack.
Jump-starting can be dangerous if done improperly so please follow the procedures in this
section carefully.
NOTE:
When using a portable battery booster pack
follow the manufacturer’s operating instructions and precautions.
Preparations For Jump-Start
The battery is stored under an access cover
in the trunk. Remote battery posts are located on the right side of the engine compartment for jump-starting.
NOTE:
The remote battery posts are viewed by
standing on the right side of the vehicle
looking over the fender.
• Set the parking brake, shift the automatic transmission into PARK and turn the ignition to
OFF.
• Turn off the heater, radio, and all unnecessary electrical accessories.
• If using another vehicle to jump-start the battery, park the vehicle within the jumper
cables reach, set the parking brake and make sure the ignition is OFF.
Jump-Starting Procedure
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:
1. Disconnect the negative (-) end of the jumper cable from the remote negative (-) post of
the vehicle with the discharged battery.
105
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
2. Disconnect the opposite end of the negative (-) jumper cable from the negative (-) post of
the booster battery.
3. Disconnect the positive (+) end of the jumper cable from the positive (+) post of the
booster battery.
4. Disconnect the opposite end of the positive (+) jumper cable from the remote positive (+)
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 (e.g., cellular phones, etc.). Eventually, if
plugged in long enough, the vehicle’s battery discharges sufficiently to degrade
battery life and/or prevent the engine from starting.
WARNING!
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
106
When temperatures are below the freezing point, electrolyte in a discharged battery
may freeze. Do not attempt jump-starting because the battery could rupture or
explode and cause personal injury. Battery temperature must be brought above
freezing point before attempting a jump-start.
Take care to avoid the radiator cooling fan whenever the hood is raised. It can start
anytime the ignition switch is on. You can be injured by moving fan blades.
Remove any metal jewelry, such as watch bands or bracelets, that might make an
inadvertent electrical contact. You could be severely injured.
Batteries contain sulfuric acid that can burn your skin or eyes and generate hydrogen
gas which is flammable and explosive. Keep open flames or sparks away from the
battery.
Do not allow vehicles to touch each other as this could establish a ground connection
and personal injury could result.
Failure to follow this procedure could result in personal injury or property damage
due to battery explosion.
Do not connect the cable to the negative post (-) of the discharged battery. The
resulting electrical spark could cause the battery to explode and could result in
personal injury.

WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
FREEING A STUCK VEHICLE
If your vehicle becomes stuck in mud, sand or snow, it can often be moved using a rocking
motion. Turn the steering wheel right and left to clear the area around the front wheels.
Then, shift back and forth between REVERSE and DRIVE, while gently pressing the accelerator. Use the least amount of accelerator pedal pressure that will maintain the rocking
motion, without spinning the wheels or racing the engine.
NOTE:
Press the “ESC Off” switch, to place the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system in “Partial
Off” mode, before rocking the vehicle. Once the vehicle has been freed, press the “ESC Off”
switch again to restore "ESC On" mode.
CAUTION!
•
•
When “rocking” a stuck vehicle by shifting between REVERSE and DRIVE, do not spin
the wheels faster than 15 mph (24 km/h), or drivetrain damage may result.
Revving the engine or spinning the wheels too fast may lead to transmission overheating and failure. It can also damage the tires. Do not spin the wheels above
30 mph (48 km/h) while in gear (no transmission shifting occurring).
WARNING!
Fast spinning tires can be dangerous. Forces generated by excessive wheel speeds may
cause tire damage or failure. A tire could explode and injure someone. Do not spin your
vehicle's wheels faster than 30 mph (48 km/h) when you are stuck. Do not let anyone
near a spinning wheel, no matter what the speed.
111
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.

The Scheduled Maintenance services listed in this manual must be done at the times or
mileages specified to protect your vehicle warranty and ensure the best vehicle performance and reliability. More frequent maintenance may be needed for vehicles in severe
operating conditions, such as dusty areas and very short trip driving. Inspection and service
should also be done anytime a malfunction is suspected.
The oil change indicator system will remind you that it is time to take your vehicle in for
scheduled maintenance.
On Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) equipped vehicles, “Oil Change Required”
will be displayed in the EVIC and a single chime will sound, indicating that an oil change is
necessary.
Based on engine operation conditions, the oil change indicator message will illuminate.
This means that service is required for your vehicle. Have your vehicle serviced as soon as
possible, within the next 500 miles (805 km).
NOTE:
• The oil change indicator message will not monitor the time since the last oil change.
Change your vehicle's oil if it has been six months since your last oil change, even if the
oil change indicator message is NOT illuminated.
• Change your engine oil more often if you drive your vehicle off-road for an extended
period of time.
• Under no circumstances should oil change intervals exceed 6,000 miles (10,000 km) or
six months, whichever comes first.
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
“Instrument Cluster Warning Lights” in “What To Do In Emergencies” in this guide or
“Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)” in “Understanding Your Instrument Panel” in
your Owners Manual on the DVD for further information.

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.
Tire And Loading Information Location
(Example)
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.
136
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
CAUTION!
Do not use scouring pads, steel wool, a bristle brush, or metal polishes. Do not use oven
cleaner. These products may damage the wheel's protective finish. Avoid automatic car
washes that use acidic solutions or harsh brushes that may damage the wheel's protective finish. Only MOPAR® Wheel Cleaner or equivalent is recommended.

must be replaced.
** The headlamps are a type of high-voltage discharge tube. High voltage can remain in the
circuit even with the headlamp switch off and the key removed. Because of this, you should
not attempt to service a headlamp bulb yourself. If a headlamp bulb fails, take your vehicle
to an authorized dealer for service.

DODGE.COM
This guide has been prepared to help you get quickly acquainted with your new Dodge 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 Dodge dealer.
> 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.) 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.
Copyright 2014 Chrysler Group LLC.
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 1-800-423-6343 (U.S.) or 1-800-387-1143 (Canada)
or by contacting your dealer.
The driver’s primary responsibility is the safe operation of the vehicle. Driving while
distracted can result in loss of vehicle control, resulting in a collision and personal injury.
Chrysler Group LLC strongly recommends that the driver use extreme caution when using any
device or feature that may take their attention off the road. Use of any electrical devices such
as cell phones, computers, portable radios, vehicle navigation or other devices by the driver while
the vehicle is moving is dangerous and could lead to a serious collision. Texting while driving is
also dangerous and should never be done while the vehicle is moving. If you find yourself unable
to devote your full attention to vehicle operation, pull off the road to a safe location and stop your
vehicle. Some States or Provinces prohibit the use of cellular telephones or texting while driving.
It is always the driver’s responsibility to comply with all local laws.
DRIVING AND ALCOHOL
Drunken driving is one of the most frequent causes of accidents. 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 an accident. Your perceptions are less sharp, your reflexes are
slower, and your judgment is impaired when you have been drinking. Never drink and then drive.
