INTRODUCTION/WELCOME
WELCOME FROM FCA US LLC
Congratulations on selecting your new FCA US LLC (“FCA US”) vehicle. Be assured that
it represents precision workmanship, distinctive styling, and high quality.
Your new FCA US 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 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 if equipped with DVD player capabilities). Additional DVD operational information is located on the back of the DVD sleeve.
For complete owner information, refer to your Owner's Manual on
www.dodge.com/en/owners/manuals.
FCA US 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.

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 children.
A child could operate power windows, other controls, or move the vehicle.
• Never use the ‘PARK’ position as a substitute for the parking brake. Always apply the
parking brake fully when parked to guard against vehicle movement and possible
injury or damage.
• Refer to your Owner's Manual 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.
When it comes to service, remember that your authorized dealer knows your vehicle best,
has factory-trained technicians and genuine MOPAR® parts, and cares about your
satisfaction.

9
GETTING STARTED
REMOTE START — IF EQUIPPED
Push the remote start button on the key fob twice within five seconds. Pushing the remote
start button a third time shuts the engine off.
To drive the vehicle, push the Keyless Enter-N-Go START/STOP button to place the
ignition in the ON/RUN mode.

is placed in the ON/RUN mode.
The vehicle must be started with the START/STOP button after two consecutive time-outs.
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 serious injury or death when inhaled.
• Keep key fobs away from children. Operation of the Remote Start System, windows, door locks or other controls could cause serious injury or death.
VEHICLE SECURITY ALARM
The vehicle security alarm monitors the vehicle doors for unauthorized entry and the
ignition for unauthorized operation. While the vehicle security alarm is armed, interior
switches for door locks and liftgate 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 display will flash.
To Arm The System
Lock the door using either the power door lock switch (one door must be open) or the lock
button on the key fob (doors can be open or closed), and close all doors.
The vehicle security light in the instrument cluster will flash for 16 seconds. This shows
that the vehicle security alarm is arming. During this period, if a door is opened, the
ignition is cycled to ON/RUN, or the power door locks are unlocked in any manner, the
vehicle security alarm will automatically disarm.
NOTE:
• The vehicle security alarm will not arm if you lock the doors with the manual door lock
plungers.
• Once armed, the vehicle security alarm disables the unlock switch on the driver door
trim panel and passenger door trim panel.
10
GETTING STARTED
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.
OCCUPANT RESTRAINT SYSTEMS
Some of the most important safety features in your vehicle are the restraint systems:
Occupant Restraint Systems Features
• Seat Belt Systems
• Supplemental Restraint Systems (SRS) Air Bags
• Supplemental Active Head Restraints
• Child Restraints
Some of the safety features described in this section may be standard equipment on some
models, or may be optional equipment on others. If you are not sure, ask your authorized
dealer.
Important Safety Precautions
Please pay close attention to the information in this section. It tells you how to use your
restraint system properly, to keep you and your passengers as safe as possible.
Here are some simple steps you can take to minimize the risk of harm from a deploying air
bag:
1. Children 12 years old and under should always ride buckled up in a vehicle with a rear
seat.
2. If a child from 2 to 12 years old (not in a rear-facing child restraint) must ride in the
front passenger seat, move the seat as far back as possible and use the proper child
restraint (refer to “Child Restraints” in this section for further information).
3. Children that are not big enough to wear the vehicle seat belt properly (refer to “Child
Restraints” in this section for further information) should be secured in a vehicle with
a rear seat in child restraints or belt-positioning booster seats. Older children who do
not use child restraints or belt-positioning booster seats should ride properly buckled
up in a vehicle with a rear seat.
4. Never allow children to slide the shoulder belt behind them or under their arm.
11
GETTING STARTED
5. You should read the instructions provided with your child restraint to make sure that
you are using it properly.
6. All occupants should always wear their lap and shoulder belts properly.
7. The driver and front passenger seats should be moved back as far as practical to allow
the front air bags room to inflate.
8. Do not lean against the door or window. If your vehicle has side air bags, and
deployment occurs, the side air bags will inflate forcefully into the space between
occupants and the door and occupants could be injured.
9. If the air bag system in this vehicle needs to be modified to accommodate a disabled
person, refer to the “Consumer Assistance” section for customer service contact
information.
WARNING!
• Never place a rear-facing child restraint in front of an air bag. A deploying passenger
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.
Seat Belt Systems
Buckle up even though you are an excellent driver, even on short trips. Someone on the
road may be a poor driver and could cause a collision that includes you. This can happen
far away from home or on your own street.
Research has shown that seat belts save lives, and they can reduce the seriousness of
injuries in a collision. Some of the worst injuries happen when people are thrown from the
vehicle. Seat belts reduce the possibility of ejection and the risk of injury caused by
striking the inside of the vehicle. Everyone in a motor vehicle should be belted at all times.
Enhanced Seat Belt Use Reminder System (BeltAlert)
Driver And Passenger BeltAlert — If Equipped
BeltAlert is a feature intended to remind the driver and outboard front seat passenger
(if equipped with outboard front passenger seat BeltAlert) to buckle their seat belts. The
Belt Alert feature is active whenever the ignition switch is in the START or ON/RUN
position.
Initial Indication
If the driver is unbuckled when the ignition switch is first in the START or ON/RUN
position, a chime will signal for a few seconds. If the driver or outboard front seat
passenger (if equipped with outboard front passenger seat BeltAlert) is unbuckled when
12
GETTING STARTED
the ignition switch is first in the START or ON/RUN position the Seat Belt Reminder Light
will turn on and remain on until both outboard front seat belts are buckled. The outboard
front passenger seat BeltAlert is not active when an outboard front passenger seat is
unoccupied.
BeltAlert Warning Sequence
The BeltAlert warning sequence is activated when the vehicle is moving above a specified
vehicle speed range and the driver or outboard front seat passenger is unbuckled (if
equipped with outboard front passenger seat BeltAlert) (the outboard front passenger seat
BeltAlert is not active when the outboard front passenger seat is unoccupied). The
BeltAlert warning sequence starts by blinking the Seat Belt Reminder Light and sounding
an intermittent chime. Once the BeltAlert warning sequence has completed, the Seat Belt
Reminder Light will remain on until the seat belts are buckled. The BeltAlert warning
sequence may repeat based on vehicle speed until the driver and occupied outboard front
seat passenger seat belts are buckled. The driver should instruct all occupants to buckle
their seat belts.
Change Of Status
If the driver or outboard front seat passenger (if equipped with outboard front passenger
seat BeltAlert) unbuckles their seat belt while the vehicle is traveling, the BeltAlert
warning sequence will begin until the seat belts are buckled again.
The outboard front passenger seat BeltAlert is not active when the outboard front
passenger seat is unoccupied. BeltAlert may be triggered when an animal or other items
are placed on the outboard front passenger seat or when the seat is folded flat (if
equipped). It is recommended that pets be restrained in the rear seat (if equipped) in pet
harnesses or pet carriers that are secured by seat belts, and cargo is properly stowed.
BeltAlert can be activated or deactivated by your authorized dealer. FCA US LLC does not
recommend deactivating BeltAlert.
NOTE:
If BeltAlert has been deactivated and the driver or outboard front seat passenger (if
equipped with outboard front passenger seat BeltAlert) is unbuckled the Seat Belt
Reminder Light will turn on and remain on until the driver and outboard front seat
passenger seat belts are buckled.
Lap/Shoulder Belts
All seating positions in your vehicle are equipped with lap/shoulder belts.
The seat belt webbing retractor will lock only during very sudden stops or collisions. This
feature allows the shoulder part of the seat belt to move freely with you under normal
conditions. However, in a collision the seat belt will lock and reduce your risk of striking
the inside of the vehicle or being thrown out of the vehicle.
13
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 belt even though you have air bags.
• 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.
• It is dangerous to ride in a cargo area, inside or outside of a vehicle. In a collision,
people riding in these areas are more likely to be seriously injured or killed.
• Do not allow people to ride in any area of your vehicle that is not equipped with seats
and seat belts.
• Be sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and using a seat belt properly.
Occupants, including the driver, should always wear their seat belts whether or not an
air bag is also provided at their seating position to minimize the risk of severe injury
or death in the event of a crash.
• Wearing your seat belt incorrectly could make your injuries in a collision much worse.
You might suffer internal injuries, or you could even slide out of the seat belt. Follow
these instructions to wear your seat belt safely and to keep your passengers safe, too.
• Two people should never be belted into a single seat belt. People belted together can
crash into one another in a collision, hurting one another badly. Never use a
lap/shoulder belt or a lap belt for more than one person, no matter what their size.
14
GETTING STARTED
WARNING!
• A lap belt worn too high can increase the risk of injury in a collision. The seat belt
forces won’t be at the strong hip and pelvic bones, but across your abdomen. Always
wear the lap part of your seat belt as low as possible and keep it snug.
• A twisted seat belt may not protect you properly. In a collision, it could even cut into
you. Be sure the seat belt is flat against your body, without twists. If you can’t
straighten a seat belt in your vehicle, take it to your authorized dealer immediately
and have it fixed.
• A seat belt that is buckled into the wrong buckle will not protect you properly. The lap
portion could ride too high on your body, possibly causing internal injuries. Always
buckle your seat belt into the buckle nearest you.
• 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 seat belt that is worn under your arm is dangerous. Your body could strike the inside
surfaces of the vehicle in a collision, increasing head and neck injury. A seat belt
worn under the arm can cause internal injuries. Ribs aren’t as strong as shoulder
bones. Wear the seat belt over your shoulder so that your strongest bones will take the
force in a collision.
• 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 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 seat belt system. Seat belt assemblies must be replaced after a collision.

Lap/Shoulder Belt Operating Instructions
1. Enter the vehicle and close the door. Sit back and adjust the seat.
2. The seat belt latch plate is above the back of the front seat, and next to your arm in the
rear seat (for vehicles equipped with a rear seat). Grasp the latch plate and pull out the
seat belt. Slide the latch plate up the webbing as far as necessary to allow the seat belt
to go around your lap.
3. When the seat belt is long enough to fit,
insert the latch plate into the buckle
until you hear a “click.”
4. 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.
5. 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.

downward to position the seat belt away from your neck. Push or squeeze the anchorage
button to release the anchorage, and move it up or down to the position that serves you
best.
As a guide, if you are shorter than average,
you will prefer the shoulder belt anchorage
in a lower position, and if you are taller than
average, you will prefer the shoulder belt
anchorage in a higher position. After you
release the anchorage button, try to move it
up or down to make sure that it is locked in
position.
NOTE:
The adjustable upper shoulder belt anchorage is equipped with an Easy Up feature.
This feature allows the shoulder belt anchorage to be adjusted in the upward position without pushing or squeezing the reAdjustable Anchorage
lease button. To verify the shoulder belt
anchorage is latched, pull downward on the shoulder belt anchorage until it is locked into
position.
WARNING!
• Wearing your seat belt incorrectly could make your injuries in a collision much worse.
You might suffer internal injuries, or you could even slide out of the seat belt. Follow
these instructions to wear your seat belt safely and to keep your passengers safe, too.
• 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.
• Misadjustment of the seat belt could reduce the effectiveness of the safety belt in a
crash.

GETTING STARTED
Seat Belt Extender
If a seat belt is not long enough to fit properly, even when the webbing is fully extended
and the adjustable upper shoulder belt anchorage (if equipped) is in its lowest position,
your authorized dealer can provide you with a Seat Belt Extender. The Seat Belt Extender
should be used only if the existing seat belt is not long enough. When the Seat Belt
Extender is not required for a different occupant, it must be removed.
WARNING!
• ONLY use the Seat Belt Extender if it is physically required in order to properly fit the
original seat belt system. DO NOT USE the Seat Belt Extender if, when worn, the
distance between the front edge of the Seat Belt Extender buckle and the center of
the occupant’s body is LESS than 6 inches.
• Using a Seat Belt Extender when not needed can increase the risk of serious injury
or death in a collision. Only use the Seat Belt Extender when the lap belt is not long
enough and only use in the recommended seating positions. Remove and store the
Seat Belt Extender when not needed.
Seat Belts And Pregnant Women
Seat belts must be worn by all occupants
including pregnant women: the risk of injury in the event of an accident is reduced
for the mother and the unborn child if they
are wearing a seat belt.
Position the lap belt snug and low below the
abdomen and across the strong bones of the
hips. Place the shoulder belt across the chest
and away from the neck. Never place the shoulder belt behind the back or under the arm.
Pregnant Women And Seat Belts
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. These devices may improve the
performance of the seat belt by removing slack from the seat belt early in a collision.
Pretensioners work for all size occupants, including those in child restraints.
NOTE:
These devices are not a substitute for proper seat belt placement by the occupant. The
seat belt still must be worn snugly and positioned properly.
21
GETTING STARTED
The pretensioners are triggered by the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC). Like the air
bags, the pretensioners are single use items. A deployed pretensioner or a deployed air
bag must be replaced immediately.
Energy Management Feature
This vehicle has a seat belt system with an Energy Management feature in the front
seating positions that may help further reduce the risk of injury in the event of a collision.
The seat belt system has a retractor assembly that is designed to release webbing in a
controlled manner.
Switchable Automatic Locking Retractors (ALR)
The seat belts in the passenger seating positions are equipped with a Switchable
Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) which is used to secure a child restraint system. For
additional information, refer to “Installing Child Restraints Using The Vehicle Seat Belt”
under the “Child Restraints” section of this manual. The figure below illustrates the
locking feature for each seating position.
If the passenger seating position is
equipped with an ALR and is being used for
normal usage, only pull the seat belt webbing out far enough to comfortably wrap
around the occupant’s mid-section so as to
not activate the ALR. If the ALR is activated, you will hear a clicking sound as the
seat belt retracts. Allow the webbing to
retract completely in this case and then
carefully pull out only the amount of webbing necessary to comfortably wrap around
the occupant’s mid-section. Slide the latch
plate into the buckle until you hear a "click."
ALR — Switchable Automatic Locking Retractor (2nd Row Bench Seat – Non-Stow ‘n
Go)
In Automatic Locking Mode, the shoulder
belt is automatically pre-locked. The seat
belt will still retract to remove any slack in
the shoulder belt. Use the Automatic Locking Mode anytime a child restraint is installed in a seating position that has a seat
belt with this feature. Children 12 years old
and under should always be properly restrained in a vehicle with a rear seat.

GETTING STARTED
WARNING!
• Never place a rear-facing child restraint in front of an air bag. A deploying passenger
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.
How To Engage The Automatic Locking Mode
1. Buckle the combination lap and shoulder belt.
2. Grasp the shoulder portion and pull downward until the entire seat belt is extracted.
3. Allow the seat belt to retract. As the seat belt retracts, you will hear a clicking sound.
This indicates the seat belt is now in the Automatic Locking Mode.
How To Disengage The Automatic Locking Mode
Unbuckle the combination lap/shoulder belt and allow it to retract completely to
disengage the Automatic Locking Mode and activate the vehicle sensitive (emergency)
locking mode.
WARNING!
• The seat belt assembly must be replaced if the switchable Automatic Locking
Retractor (ALR) feature or any other seat belt function is not working properly when
checked according to the procedures in the Service Manual.
• Failure to replace the seat belt assembly could increase the risk of injury in collisions.
• Do not use the Automatic Locking Mode to restrain occupants who are wearing the
seat belt or children who are using booster seats. The locked mode is only used to
install rear-facing or forward-facing child restraints that have a harness for restraining
the child.
Supplemental Active Head Restraints (AHR)
These head restraints are passive deployable components, and vehicles with this equipment cannot be readily identified by any markings, only through visual inspection of the
head restraint. The head restraint will be split in two halves, with the front half being soft
foam and trim, the back half being decorative plastic.
23
GETTING STARTED
How The Active Head Restraints (AHR) Work
The Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) determines whether the severity or type of rear
impact will require the Active Head Restraints (AHR) to deploy. If a rear impact requires
deployment, both the driver and front passenger seat AHRs will be deployed.
When AHRs deploy during a rear impact, the front half of the head restraint extends
forward to minimize the gap between the back of the occupant’s head and the AHR. This
system is designed to help prevent or reduce the extent of injuries to the driver and front
passenger in certain types of rear impacts.
NOTE:
The Active Head Restraints (AHR) may or may not deploy in the event of a front or side
impact. However, if during a front impact, a secondary rear impact occurs, the AHR may
deploy based on the severity and type of the impact.

24
GETTING STARTED
WARNING!
• All occupants, including the driver, should not operate a vehicle or sit in a vehicle’s
eat until the head restraints are placed in their proper positions in order to minimize
the risk of neck injury in the event of a collision.
• 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
Active Head Restraint in the event of a collision and could result in serious injury or
death.
• Active Head Restraints may be deployed if they are struck by an object such as a
hand, foot or loose cargo. To avoid accidental deployment of the Active Head
Restraint, ensure that all cargo is secured, as loose cargo could contact the Active
Head Restraint during sudden stops. Failure to follow this warning could cause
personal injury if the Active Head Restraint is deployed.
NOTE:
For more information on properly adjusting and positioning the head restraint, refer to
“Supplemental Active Head Restraints” in “Getting Started.”
Resetting Active Head Restraints (AHR)
If the Active Head Restraints are triggered during a collision, the front half of the head
restraint will be extended forward and separated from the rear half of the head restraint
(see image). Do not drive your vehicle after the AHRs have deployed. The head restraint
must be reset into the original position to best protect the occupant for all types of
collisions. An authorized FCA US LLC dealer must reset the AHRs on the driver’s and front
passenger’s seat before driving. Personally attempting to reset the AHRs may result in
damage to the AHRs that could impair their function.
WARNING!
Deployed AHRs are not able to best protect you in all types of collisions. Have deployed
AHRs reset by an authorized dealer immediately.
Supplemental Restraint Systems (SRS)
Some of the safety features described in this section may be standard equipment on some
models, or may be optional equipment on others. If you are not sure, ask your authorized
dealer.
25
GETTING STARTED
The air bag system must be ready to protect you in a collision. The Occupant Restraint
Controller (ORC) monitors the internal circuits and interconnecting wiring associated with
the electrical Air Bag System Components. Your vehicle may be equipped with the
following Air Bag System Components:
Air Bag System Components
• Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC)
• Air Bag Warning Light
• Steering Wheel and Column
• Instrument Panel
• Knee Impact Bolsters
• Driver and Front Passenger Air Bags
• Supplemental Side Air Bags
• Supplemental Knee Air Bags
• Front and Side Impact Sensors
• Seat Belt Pretensioners
• Seat Track Position Sensors
• Seat Belt Buckle Switch
Air Bag Warning Light
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.
The ORC contains a backup power supply system that may deploy the air bag system even
if the battery loses power or it becomes disconnected prior to deployment.
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 in the ON/RUN
position. After the self-check, the Air Bag Warning Light will turn off. 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 also includes diagnostics that will illuminate the instrument panel Air Bag
Warning Light if a malfunction is detected that could affect the air bag system. The
diagnostics also record the nature of the malfunction. While the air bag system is designed
to be maintenance free, if any of the following occurs, have an authorized dealer service
the air bag system immediately.
• The Air Bag Warning Light does not come on during the four to eight seconds when the
ignition switch is first in the ON/RUN position.
26
GETTING STARTED
• The Air Bag Warning Light remains on after the four to eight-second interval.
• The Air Bag Warning Light comes on intermittently or remains on while driving.
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.
WARNING!
Ignoring the Air Bag Warning Light in your instrument panel could mean you won’t have
the air bag system to protect you in a collision. If the light does not come on as a bulb
check when the ignition is first turned on, stays on after you start the vehicle, or if it
comes on as you drive, have an authorized dealer service the air bag system immediately.
Front Air Bags
This vehicle has front air bags and lap/shoulder belts for both the driver and front
passenger. The front air bags are a supplement to the seat belt restraint systems. The
driver front air bag is mounted in the center of the steering wheel. The passenger front air
bag is mounted in the instrument panel, above the glove compartment. The words “SRS
AIRBAG” or “AIRBAG” are embossed on the air bag covers.

GETTING STARTED
WARNING!
• Being too close to the steering wheel or instrument panel during 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.
• Never place a rear-facing child restraint in front of an air bag. A deploying passenger
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.
Driver And Passenger Front Air Bag Features
The Advanced Front Air Bag system has multistage driver and front passenger air bags.
This system provides output appropriate to the severity and type of collision as determined
by the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC), which may receive information from the front
impact sensors (if equipped) or other system components.
The first stage inflator is triggered immediately during an impact that requires air bag
deployment. A low energy output is used in less severe collisions. A higher energy output
is used for more severe collisions.
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 buckled. The seat belt
buckle switch may adjust the inflation rate of the Advanced Front Air Bags.
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.
WARNING!
• 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.
• Do not put anything on or around the air bag covers or attempt to open them
manually. You may damage the air bags and you could be injured because the air
bags may no longer be functional. The protective covers for the air bag cushions are
designed to open only when the air bags are inflating.
• 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, air bags
won’t deploy at all. Always wear your seat belts even though you have air bags.
28
GETTING STARTED
Front Air Bag Operation
Front Air Bags are designed to provide additional protection by supplementing the seat
belts. Front air bags are not expected to reduce the risk of injury in rear, side, or rollover
collisions. The 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, 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.
When the ORC detects a collision requiring the front air bags, it signals the inflator units.
A large quantity of non-toxic gas is generated to inflate the front air bags.
The steering wheel hub trim cover and the upper right side of the instrument panel
separate and fold out of the way as the air bags inflate to their full size. The front air bags
fully inflate in less time than it takes to blink your eyes. The front air bags then quickly
deflate while helping to restrain the driver and front passenger.
Knee Impact Bolsters
The Knee Impact Bolsters help protect the knees of the driver and front passenger, and
position the front occupants for improved interaction with the front air bags.
WARNING!
• Do not drill, cut, or tamper with the knee impact bolsters in any way.
• Do not mount any accessories to the knee impact bolsters such as alarm lights,
stereos, citizen band radios, etc.
Supplemental Driver Knee Air Bag
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 front air bags.
29
GETTING STARTED
Supplemental Side Air Bags
Your vehicle is equipped with two types of side air bags:
1. 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.
The SABs may help to reduce the risk of
occupant injury during certain side impacts and/or vehicle rollover events, in
addition to the injury reduction potential provided by the seat belts and body
structure.
When the SAB deploys, it opens the
seam on the outboard side of the seatback’s trim cover. The inflating SAB
deploys through the seat seam into the
space between the occupant and the
door. The SAB moves at a very high
speed and with such a high force that it
could injure occupants if they are not
seated properly, or if items are positioned in the area where the SAB inflates. Children are at an even greater
risk of injury from a deploying air bag.
Supplemental Seat-Mounted Side Air Bag
Label
WARNING!
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.
30
GETTING STARTED
2. Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtains (SABICs): Located above the side
windows. The trim covering the SABICs is labeled “SRS AIRBAG” or “AIRBAG.”
SABICs may help reduce the risk of
head or other injuries to front and rear
seat outboard occupants in certain side
impacts and/or vehicle rollover events,
in addition to the injury reduction potential provided by the seat belts and
body structure.
The SABICs deploy downward, covering
the side windows. An inflating SABIC
pushes the outside edge of the trim out
of the way and covers the window. The
SABICs inflate with enough force to
injure occupants if they are not belted
and seated properly, or if items are
positioned in the area where the
SABICs inflate. Children are at an even
greater risk of injury from a deploying
air bag.
Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtain
(SABIC) Label Location
WARNING!
• 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.
• 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.
The SABICs and SABs (Side Air Bags) are designed to activate in certain side impacts
and certain rollover events. The Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) determines
whether the deployment of the Side Air Bags in a particular side impact or rollover
event 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.
Side Air Bags are a supplement to the seat belt restraint system. Side Air Bags deploy
in less time than it takes to blink your eyes.
31
GETTING STARTED
WARNING!
• Occupants, including children, who are up against or very close to Side Air Bags can
be seriously injured or killed. Occupants, including children, should never lean on or
sleep against the door, side windows, or area where the side air bags inflate, even if
they are in an infant or child restraint.
• Seat belts (and child restraints where appropriate) are necessary for your protection
in all collisions. They also help keep you in position, away from an inflating Side Air
Bag. To get the best protection from the Side Air Bags, occupants must wear their
seat belts properly and sit upright with their backs against the seats. Children must
be properly restrained in a child restraint or booster seat that is appropriate for the
size of the child.
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.
NOTE:
Air bag covers may not be obvious in the interior trim, but they will open during air bag
deployment.
32
GETTING STARTED
Side Impacts
In side impacts, the side impact sensors aid the ORC in determining the appropriate
response to impact events. The system is calibrated to deploy the Side Air Bags on the
impact side of the vehicle during impacts that require Side Air Bag occupant protection.
In side impacts, the Side Air Bags deploy independently; a left side impact deploys the
left Side Air Bags only and a right side impact deploys the right Side Air Bags only.
The Side Air Bags will not deploy in all side collisions, including some collisions at certain
angles, or some side collisions that do not impact the area of the passenger compartment.
The Side Air Bags may deploy during angled or offset frontal collisions where the front air
bags deploy.
Rollover Events
Side Air Bags are designed to activate in certain rollover events. The ORC determines
whether the deployment of the Side Air Bags in a particular rollover event 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.
The Side Air Bags will not deploy in all rollover events. The rollover sensing-system
determines if a rollover event may be in progress and whether deployment is appropriate.
A slower-developing event may deploy the seat belt pretensioners on both sides of the
vehicle. A faster-developing event may deploy the seat belt pretensioners as well as the
Side Air Bags on both sides of the vehicle. The rollover sensing-system may also deploy
the seat belt pretensioners, with or without the Side Air Bags, on both sides of the vehicle
if the vehicle experiences a near rollover event.
The SABICs may help reduce the risk of partial or complete ejection of vehicle occupants
through side windows in certain rollover or side impact events.
The Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) monitors the internal circuits and interconnecting wiring associated with electrical Air Bag System Components listed below:

If A Deployment Occurs
The front air bags are designed to deflate immediately after deployment.
NOTE:
Front and/or side air bags will not deploy in all collisions. This does not mean something
is wrong with the air bag system.
If you do have a collision which deploys the air bags, any or all of the following may occur:
• The air bag material may sometimes cause abrasions and/or skin reddening to the
occupants as the air bags deploy and unfold. The abrasions are similar to friction rope
burns or those you might get sliding along a carpet or gymnasium floor. They are not
caused by contact with chemicals. They are not permanent and normally heal quickly.
However, if you haven’t healed significantly within a few days, or if you have any
blistering, see your doctor immediately.
• As the air bags deflate, you may see some smoke-like particles. The particles are a
normal by-product of the process that generates the non-toxic gas used for air bag
inflation. These airborne particles may irritate the skin, eyes, nose, or throat. If you have
skin or eye irritation, rinse the area with cool water. For nose or throat irritation, move
to fresh air. If the irritation continues, see your doctor. If these particles settle on your
clothing, follow the garment manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning.
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.
WARNING!
Deployed air bags and seat belt pretensioners cannot protect you in another collision.
Have the air bags, seat belt pretensioners, and the seat belt retractor assemblies
replaced by an authorized dealer immediately. Also, have the Occupant Restraint
Controller System serviced as well.
NOTE:
• Air bag covers may not be obvious in the interior trim, but they will open during air bag
deployment.
• After any collision, the vehicle should be taken to an authorized dealer immediately.

Enhanced Accident Response System
In the event of an impact, if the communication network remains intact, and the power
remains intact, depending on the nature of the event, the ORC will determine whether to
have the Enhanced Accident Response System perform the following functions:
• Cut off fuel to the engine.
• Flash hazard lights as long as the battery has power or until the hazard light button is
pressed. The hazard lights can be deactivated by pressing the hazard light button.
• Turn on the interior lights, which remain on as long as the battery has power.
• Unlock the power door locks.
Enhanced Accident Response System Reset Procedure
In order to reset the Enhanced Accident Response System functions after an event, the
ignition switch must be changed from ignition START or ON/RUN to ignition OFF.
Carefully check the vehicle for fuel leaks in the engine compartment and on the ground
near the engine compartment and fuel tank before resetting the system and starting the
engine.
Maintaining Your Air Bag System
WARNING!
• Modifications to any part of the air bag system could cause it to fail when you need
it. You could be injured if the air bag system is not there to protect you. Do not modify
the components or wiring, including adding any kind of badges or stickers to the
steering wheel hub trim cover or the upper right side of the instrument panel. Do not
modify the front bumper, vehicle body structure, or add aftermarket side steps or
running boards.
• It is dangerous to try to repair any part of the air bag system yourself. Be sure to tell
anyone who works on your vehicle that it has an air bag system.
• Do not attempt to modify any part of your air bag system. The air bag may inflate
accidentally or may not function properly if modifications are made. Take your
vehicle to an authorized dealer for any air bag system service. If your seat, including
your trim cover and cushion, needs to be serviced in any way (including removal or
loosening/tightening of seat attachment bolts), take the vehicle to your authorized
dealer. Only manufacturer approved seat accessories may be used. If it is necessary
to modify the air bag system for persons with disabilities, contact your authorized
dealer.

GETTING STARTED
Event Data Recorder (EDR)
This vehicle is equipped with an event data recorder (EDR). The main purpose of an EDR
is to record, in certain crash or near crash-like situations, such as an air bag deployment
or hitting a road obstacle, data that will assist in understanding how a vehicle’s systems
performed. The EDR is designed to record data related to vehicle dynamics and safety
systems for a short period of time, typically 30 seconds or less. The EDR in this vehicle is
designed to record such data as:
• How various systems in your vehicle were operating;
• Whether or not the driver and passenger safety belts were buckled/fastened;
• How far (if at all) the driver was depressing the accelerator and/or brake pedal; and,
• How fast the vehicle was traveling.
• These data can help provide a better understanding of the circumstances in which
crashes and injuries occur.
NOTE:
EDR data are recorded by your vehicle only if a non-trivial crash situation occurs; no data
are recorded by the EDR under normal driving conditions and no personal data (e.g.,
name, gender, age, and crash location) are recorded. However, other parties, such as law
enforcement, could combine the EDR data with the type of personally identifying data
routinely acquired during a crash investigation.
To read data recorded by an EDR, special equipment is required, and access to the vehicle
or the EDR is needed. In addition to the vehicle manufacturer, other parties, such as law
enforcement, that have the special equipment, can read the information if they have
access to the vehicle or the EDR.
Child Restraints
Everyone in your vehicle needs to be buckled up at all times, including babies and
children. Every state in the United States, and every Canadian province, requires that
small children ride in proper restraint systems. This is the law, and you can be prosecuted
for ignoring it.
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.
WARNING!
In a collision, an unrestrained child 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 badly
injured. Any child riding in your vehicle should be in a proper restraint for the child’s
size.
36
GETTING STARTED
There are different sizes and types of restraints for children from newborn size to the child
almost large enough for an adult safety belt. Always check the child seat Owner’s Manual
to make sure you have the correct seat for your child. Carefully read and follow all the
instructions and warnings in the child restraint Owner’s Manual and on all the labels
attached to the child restraint.
Before buying any restraint system, make sure that it has a label certifying that it meets
all applicable Safety Standards. You should also make sure that you can install it in the
vehicle where you will use it.

GETTING STARTED
Infant And Child Restraints
Safety experts recommend that children ride rear-facing in the vehicle until they are two
years old or until they reach either the height or weight limit of their rear-facing child
restraint. Two types of child restraints can be used rear-facing: infant carriers and
convertible child seats.
The infant carrier is only used rear-facing in the vehicle. It is recommended for children
from birth until they reach the weight or height limit of the infant carrier. Convertible child
seats can be used either rear-facing or forward-facing in the vehicle. Convertible child
seats often have a higher weight limit in the rear-facing direction than infant carriers do,
so they can be used rear-facing by children who have outgrown their infant carrier but are
still less than at least two years old. Children should remain rear-facing until they reach the
highest weight or height allowed by their convertible child seat.
WARNING!
• Never place a rear-facing child restraint in front of an air bag. A deploying passenger
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.
WARNING!
Do not install a rear-facing car seat using a rear support leg in this vehicle. The floor of
this vehicle is not designed to manage the crash forces of this type of car seat. In a
crash, the support leg may not function as it was designed by the car seat manufacturer, and your child may be more severely injured as a result.
38
GETTING STARTED
Older Children And Child Restraints
Children who are two years old or who have outgrown their rear-facing convertible child
seat can ride forward-facing in the vehicle. Forward-facing child seats and convertible
child seats used in the forward-facing direction are for children who are over two years old
or who have outgrown the rear-facing weight or height limit of their rear-facing convertible
child seat. Children should remain in a forward-facing child seat with a harness for as long
as possible, up to the highest weight or height allowed by the child seat.
All children whose weight or height is above the forward-facing limit for the child seat
should use a belt-positioning booster seat until the vehicle’s seat belts fit properly. If the
child cannot sit with knees bent over the vehicle’s seat cushion while the child’s back is
against the seatback, they should use a belt-positioning booster seat. The child and
belt-positioning booster seat are held in the vehicle by the seat belt.
WARNING!
• Improper installation can lead to failure of an infant or child restraint. It could come
loose in a collision. The child could be badly injured or killed. Follow the child
restraint manufacturer’s directions exactly when installing an infant or child restraint.
• After a child restraint is installed in the vehicle, do not move the vehicle seat forward
or rearward because it can loosen the child restraint attachments. Remove the child
restraint before adjusting the vehicle seat position. When the vehicle seat has been
adjusted, reinstall the child restraint.
• When your child restraint is not in use, secure it in the vehicle with a seat belt or
LATCH anchorages, or remove it from the vehicle. Do not leave it loose in the vehicle.
In a sudden stop or accident, it could strike the occupants or seatbacks and cause
serious personal injury.
Children Too Large For Booster Seats
Children who are large enough to wear the shoulder belt comfortably, and whose legs are
long enough to bend over the front of the seat when their back is against the seatback,
should use the seat belt in a rear seat. Use this simple 5-step test to decide whether the
child can use the vehicle’s seat belt alone:
1. Can the child sit all the way back against the back of the vehicle seat?
2. Do the child’s knees bend comfortably over the front of the vehicle seat – while they are
still sitting all the way back?
3. Does the shoulder belt cross the child’s shoulder between their neck and arm?
39
GETTING STARTED
4. Is the lap part of the belt as low as possible, touching the child’s thighs and not their
stomach?
5. Can the child stay seated like this for the whole trip?
If the answer to any of these questions was “no,” then the child still needs to use a booster
seat in this vehicle. If the child is using the lap/shoulder belt, check seat belt fit
periodically and make sure the seat belt buckle is latched. A child’s squirming or
slouching can move the belt out of position. If the shoulder belt contacts the face or neck,
move the child closer to the center of the vehicle, or use a booster seat to position the seat
belt on the child correctly.
WARNING!
Never allow a child to put the shoulder belt under an arm or behind their back. In a
crash, the shoulder belt will not protect a child properly, which may result in serious
injury or death. A child must always wear both the lap and shoulder portions of the seat
belt correctly.

Lower Anchors And Tethers For CHildren (LATCH) Restraint System
Your vehicle is equipped with the child
restraint anchorage system called LATCH,
which stands for Lower Anchors and Tethers
for CHildren. The LATCH system has three
vehicle anchor points for installing LATCHequipped child seats. There are two lower
anchorages located at the back of the seat
cushion where it meets the seatback and
LATCH Label
one top tether anchorage located behind
the seating position. These anchorages are
used to install LATCH-equipped child seats without using the vehicle’s seat belts. Some
seating positions may have a top tether anchorage but no lower anchorages. In these
seating positions, the seat belt must be used with the top tether anchorage to install the
child restraint. Please see the following table for more information.

outboard position.
WARNING!
Never use the same lower anchorage to attach more than one child restraint. Please
refer to “To Install A LATCH-Compatible Child Restraint” for typical installation
instructions.
Always follow the directions of the child restraint manufacturer when installing your child
restraint. Not all child restraint systems will be installed as described here.
45
GETTING STARTED
To Install A LATCH-Compatible Child Restraint
If the selected seating position has a Switchable Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) seat
belt, stow the seat belt, following the instructions below. See the section “Installing Child
Restraints Using The Vehicle Seat Belt” to check what type of seat belt each seating
position has.
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. Place the child seat between the lower anchorages for that seating position. For some
second row seats, you may need to recline the seat and/or raise the head restraint to get
a better fit. If the rear seat can be moved forward and rearward in the vehicle, you may
wish to move it to its rear-most position to make room for the child seat. You may also
move the front seat forward to allow more room for the child seat.
3. Attach the lower hooks or connectors of the child restraint to the lower anchorages in
the selected seating position.
4. If the child restraint has a tether strap, connect it to the top tether anchorage. See the
section “Installing Child Restraints Using The Top Tether Anchorage” for directions to
attach a tether anchor.
5. 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.
6. 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.
How To Stow An Unused Switchable-ALR (ALR) Seat Belt:
When using the LATCH attaching system to install a child restraint, stow all ALR seat belts
that are not being used by other occupants or being used to secure child restraints. An
unused belt could injure a child if they play with it and accidentally lock the seat belt
retractor. Before installing a child restraint using the LATCH system, buckle the seat belt
behind the child restraint and out of the child’s reach. If the buckled seat belt interferes
with the child restraint installation, instead of buckling it behind the child restraint, route
the seat belt through the child restraint belt path and then buckle it. Do not lock the seat
belt. Remind all children in the vehicle that the seat belts are not toys and that they should
not play with them.
WARNING!
• Improper installation of a child restraint to the LATCH anchorages can lead to failure
of the restraint. The child could be badly injured or killed. Follow the child restraint
manufacturer’s directions exactly when installing an infant or child restraint.
• Child restraint anchorages are designed to withstand only those loads imposed by
correctly-fitted child restraints. Under no circumstances are they to be used for adult
seat belts, harnesses, or for attaching other items or equipment to the vehicle.

GETTING STARTED
Installing Child Restraints Using The Vehicle Seat Belt
Child restraint systems are designed to be secured in vehicle seats by lap belts or the lap
belt portion of a lap/shoulder belt.
WARNING!
• Improper installation or failure to properly secure a child restraint can lead to failure
of the restraint. The child could be badly injured or killed.
• Follow the child restraint manufacturer’s directions exactly when installing an infant
or child restraint.
The seat belts in the passenger seating positions are equipped with either a Switchable
Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) or a cinching latch plate or both. Both types of seat
belts are designed to keep the lap portion of the seat belt tight around the child restraint
so that it is not necessary to use a locking clip. The ALR retractor can be “switched” into
a locked mode by pulling all of the webbing out of the retractor and then letting the
webbing retract back into the retractor. If it is locked, the ALR will make a clicking noise
while the webbing is pulled back into the retractor. Refer to the “Automatic Locking
Mode” description in “Switchable Automatic Locking Retractors (ALR)” under “Occupant Restraint Systems” for additional information on ALR. The cinching latch plate is
designed to hold the lap portion of the seat belt tight when webbing is pulled tight and
straight through a child restraint’s belt path.

WARNING!
• Improper installation or failure to properly secure a child restraint can lead to failure
of the restraint. The child could be badly injured or killed.
• Follow the child restraint manufacturer’s directions exactly when installing an infant
or child restraint.
1. Place the child seat in the center of the seating position. For some second row seats,
you may need to recline the seat and/or raise the head restraint to get a better fit. If the
rear seat can be moved forward and rearward in the vehicle, you may wish to move it
to its rear-most position to make room for the child seat. You may also move the front
seat forward to allow more room for the child seat.
2. 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.
3. Slide the latch plate into the buckle until you hear a “click.”
50
GETTING STARTED
4. Pull on the webbing to make the lap portion tight against the child seat.
5. 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.
6. 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 step 5.
7. Finally, pull up on any excess webbing to tighten the lap portion around the child
restraint while you push the child restraint rearward and downward into the vehicle
seat.
8. 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
the section “Installing Child Restraints Using the Top Tether Anchorage” for directions
to attach a tether anchor.
9. 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.
Any seat belt system will loosen with time, so check the belt occasionally, and pull it tight
if necessary.
Installing A Child Restraint With A Cinching Latch Plate (CINCH) — If Equipped:

seat forward to allow more room for the child seat.
2. Next, 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.
3. Slide the latch plate into the buckle until you hear a “click.”
4. Finally, pull up on any excess webbing to tighten the lap portion around the child
restraint while you push the child restraint rearward and downward into the vehicle
seat.
51
GETTING STARTED
5. 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
the section “Installing Child Restraints Using the Top Tether Anchorage” for directions
to attach a tether anchor.
6. 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.
Any seat belt system will loosen with time, so check the belt occasionally, and pull it tight
if necessary.
If the buckle or the cinching latch plate is too close to the belt path opening of the child
restraint, you may have trouble tightening the seat belt. If this happens, disconnect the
latch plate from the buckle and twist the short buckle-end belt up to three full turns to
shorten it. Insert the latch plate into the buckle with the release button facing out, away
from the child restraint. Repeat steps 4 to 6, above, to complete the installation of the
child restraint.
If the belt still cannot be tightened after you shorten the buckle, disconnect the latch plate
from the buckle, turn the buckle around one half turn, and insert the latch plate into the
buckle again. If you still cannot make the child restraint installation tight, try a different
seating position.
Installing Child Restraints Using The Top Tether Anchorage
WARNING!
Do not attach a tether strap for a rear-facing car seat to any location in front of the car
seat, including the seat frame or a tether anchorage. Only attach the tether strap of a
rear-facing car seat to the tether anchorage that is approved for that seating position,
located behind the top of the vehicle seat. See the section “Lower Anchors and Tethers
for CHildren (LATCH) Restraint System” for the location of approved tether anchorages
in your vehicle.
52
GETTING STARTED
1. Look behind the seating position where you plan to install the child restraint to find the
tether anchorage. You may need to move the seat forward to provide better access to
the tether anchorage. If there is no top tether anchorage for that seating position, move
the child restraint to another position in the vehicle if one is available.
2. Route the tether strap to provide the
most direct path for the strap between
the anchor and the child seat. 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.
3. Attach the tether strap hook of the child
restraint to the top tether anchorage as
shown in the diagram.
4. Remove slack in the tether strap according to the child restraint manufacturer’s
instructions.

Transporting Pets
Air Bags deploying in the front seat could harm your pet. An unrestrained pet will be
thrown about and possibly injured, or injure a passenger during panic braking or in a
collision.
Pets should be restrained in the rear seat in pet harnesses or pet carriers that are secured
by seat belts.
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!
• All occupants, including the driver, should not operate a vehicle or sit in a vehicle’s
seat until the head restraints are placed in their proper positions in order to minimize
the risk of neck injury in the event of a crash.
• 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.

Supplemental Active Head Restraints — Front Seats
Active Head Restraints are passive, deployable components, and vehicles with this
equipment cannot be readily identified by any markings, only through visual inspection of
the head restraint. The Active Head Restraints (AHR) will be split in two halves, with the
front half being soft foam and trim, the back half being decorative plastic.
When AHRs deploy during a rear impact, the front half of the head restraint extends
forward to minimize the gap between the back of the occupant’s head and the AHR.
This system is designed to help prevent or reduce the extent of injuries to the driver
and front passenger in certain types of rear impacts. Refer to “Occupant Restraints”
in “Things To Know Before Starting Your Vehicle” in the Owner’s Manual on
www.dodge.com/en/owners/manuals for further information.
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

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 “Maintenance Procedures” in “Maintaining
Your Vehicle” in your Owner’s Manual on www.dodge.com/en/owners/manuals for further
details.
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.

CYBERSECURITY
Your vehicle may be a connected vehicle and may be equipped with both wired and
wireless networks. These networks allow your vehicle to send and receive information.
This information allows systems and features in your vehicle to function properly.
Your vehicle may be equipped with certain security features to reduce the risk of
unauthorized and unlawful access to vehicle systems and wireless communications.
Vehicle software technology continues to evolve over time and FCA US LLC, working with
its suppliers, evaluates and takes appropriate steps as needed. Similar to a computer or
other devices, your vehicle may require software updates to improve the usability and
performance of your systems or to reduce the potential risk of unauthorized and unlawful
access to your vehicle systems.
The risk of unauthorized and unlawful access to your vehicle systems may still exist, even
if the most recent version of vehicle software (such as Uconnect software) is installed.
WARNING!
• It is not possible to know or to predict all of the possible outcomes if your vehicle’s
systems are breached. It may be possible that vehicle systems, including safety
related systems, could be impaired or a loss of vehicle control could occur that may
result in an accident involving serious injury or death.
• ONLY insert media (e.g., USB, SD card, or CD) into your vehicle if it came from a
trusted source. Media of unknown origin could possibly contain malicious software,
and if installed in your vehicle, it may increase the possibility for vehicle systems to
be breached.
• As always, if you experience unusual vehicle behavior, take your vehicle to your
nearest authorized dealer immediately.
NOTE:
• FCA or your dealer may contact you directly regarding software updates.
• To help further improve vehicle security and minimize the potential risk of a security
breach, vehicle owners should:
• Routinely check www.driveuconnect.com/software-update to learn about available
Uconnect software updates.
• Only connect and use trusted media devices (e.g. personal mobile phones, USBs,
CDs).
Privacy of any wireless and wired communications cannot be assured. Third parties may
unlawfully intercept information and private communications without your consent. For
further information, refer to “Onboard Diagnostic System (OBD II) Cybersecurity” in “Maintaining Your Vehicle” in your Owner’s Manual on www.dodge.com/en/owners/manuals.

— 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 gear selector 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.
— Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Warning Light
The warning light switches on and a message is displayed to indicate that the tire pressure
is lower than the recommended value and/or that slow pressure loss is occurring. In these
cases, optimal tire duration and fuel consumption may not be guaranteed.
Should one or more tires be in the condition mentioned above, the display will show the
indications corresponding to each tire in sequence.
CAUTION!
Do not continue driving with one or more flat tires as handling may be compromised.
Stop the vehicle, avoiding sharp braking and steering. Repair immediately using the
dedicated tire repair kit and contact your authorized dealer as soon as possible.

W H AT T O D O I N E M E R G E N C I E S
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.
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.
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. Using aftermarket tire sealants may cause the Tire Pressure
Monitoring System (TPMS) sensor to become inoperable. After using an aftermarket
tire sealant it is recommended that you take your vehicle to an authorized dealer to
have your sensor function checked.

— Engine Temperature Warning Light
This light warns of an overheated engine condition.
If the light turns on or flashes continuously while driving, safely pull over and stop the
vehicle. If the A/C system is on, turn it off. Also, shift the transmission into NEUTRAL and
idle the vehicle. If the temperature reading does not return to normal, turn the engine off
immediately and call for service.
We recommend that you do not operate the vehicle or engine damage will occur. Have the
vehicle serviced immediately.
WARNING!
A hot engine cooling system is dangerous. You or others could be badly burned by
steam or boiling content.
— 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 “Getting Started” 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.
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.
120
W H AT T O D O I N E M E R G E N C I E S
The light will remain on until the cause is corrected.
NOTE:
The light may flash momentarily during sharp cornering maneuvers, which change fluid
level conditions. The vehicle should have service performed, and the brake fluid level
checked.
If brake failure is indicated, immediate repair is necessary.
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.
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.
— Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL)
Certain conditions, such as a loose or missing gas cap, poor fuel quality, etc., may
illuminate the MIL after engine start. The vehicle should be serviced if the light stays on
through several typical driving cycles. In most situations, the vehicle will drive normally
and not require towing.
If the MIL flashes when the engine is running, serious conditions may exist that could lead
to immediate loss of power or severe catalytic converter damage. We recommend you do
not operate the vehicle. Have the vehicle serviced immediately.
— Electronic Stability Control (ESC) Indicator Light
If this indicator light flashes during acceleration, apply as little throttle as possible. While
driving, ease up on the accelerator. Adapt your speed and driving to the prevailing road
conditions. To improve the vehicle's traction when starting off in deep snow, sand or
gravel, it may be desirable to switch the ESC system off.

OIL CHANGE REQUIRED
Your vehicle is equipped with an engine oil change indicator system. The Oil Change
Required message will display in the instrument cluster display for approximately
10 seconds, after a single chime has sounded, to indicate the next scheduled oil change
interval. The engine oil change indicator system is duty-cycle based, which means the
engine oil change interval may fluctuate dependent upon your personal driving style.
To reset the oil change indicator system (after performing the scheduled maintenance),
refer to the following procedure.
Vehicles Not Equipped With Keyless Enter-N-Go
1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN position (do not start the engine).
2. Fully depress the accelerator pedal, slowly, three times within 10 seconds.
3. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF/LOCK position.
NOTE:

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.
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.
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.

Tire Service Kit Usage Precautions
• Replace the Tire Service Kit Sealant Bottle (1) and Sealant Hose (6) prior to the
expiration date (printed at the lower right hand corner 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 and need to
be replaced after each use. Always replace these components immediately at your
original equipment vehicle 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 tire.
• Do not lift or carry the Tire Service Kit by the hoses.
126
W H AT T O D O I N E M E R G E N C I E S
WARNING!
• Do not attempt to seal a tire on the side of the vehicle closest to traffic. Pull far
enough off the road to avoid the danger of being hit when using the Tire Service Kit.
• Do not use Tire Service Kit or drive the vehicle under the following circumstances:
• If the puncture in the tire tread is approximately 1/4 inch (6 mm) or larger.
• If the tire has any sidewall damage.
• If the tire has any damage from driving with extremely low tire pressure.
• If the tire has any damage from driving on a flat tire.
• If the wheel has any damage.
• If you are unsure of the condition of the tire or the wheel.
• Keep Tire Service Kit away from open flames or heat sources.

Failure to follow these warnings can result in injuries that are serious or fatal to you,
your passengers, and others around you.
• Take care not to allow the contents of Tire Service Kit to come in contact with hair,
eyes, or clothing. Tire Service Kit sealant is harmful if inhaled, swallowed, or
absorbed through the skin. It causes skin, eye, and respiratory irritation. Flush
immediately with plenty of water if there is any contact with eyes or skin. Change
clothing as soon as possible, if there is any contact with clothing.
• Tire Service Kit Sealant solution contains latex. In case of an allergic reaction or rash,
consult a physician immediately. Keep Tire Service Kit out of reach of children. If
swallowed, rinse mouth immediately with plenty of water and drink plenty of water.
Do not induce vomiting! Consult a physician immediately.
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.
3. Place the transmission in PARK (auto transmission) or in Gear (manual transmission)
and place the ignition in the OFF position.

Jump-Starting Procedure
WARNING!
Failure to follow this jump-starting procedure could result in personal injury or property
damage due to battery explosion.
CAUTION!
Failure to follow these procedures could result in damage to the charging system of the
booster vehicle or the discharged vehicle.
Connecting The Jumper Cables
1. Connect the positive (+) end of the jumper cable to the positive (+) post of the vehicle
with the discharged battery.
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 a good engine ground
(exposed metal part of the discharged vehicle’s engine) away from the battery and the
fuel injection system.
WARNING!
Do not connect the jumper cable to the negative (-) post of the discharged battery. The

ALL MODELS
If transmission is operable:
• Transmission in NEUTRAL
• 25 mph (40 km/h) max
speed
• 15 miles (24 km) max
distance
OK
BEST METHOD
Proper towing or lifting equipment is required to prevent damage to your vehicle. Use only
tow bars and other equipment designed for this purpose, following equipment manufacturer’s instructions. Use of safety chains is mandatory. Attach a tow bar or other towing
device to main structural members of the vehicle, not to bumpers or associated brackets.
State and local laws regarding vehicles under tow must be observed.
If you must use the accessories (wipers, defrosters, etc.) while being towed, the ignition
must be in the ON/RUN mode, not the ACC mode.
If the key fob is unavailable or the vehicle's battery is discharged, refer to "Gear Selector
Override" in this section for instructions on shifting the transmission out of PARK for
towing.
CAUTION!
• Do not use sling type equipment when towing. Vehicle damage may occur.
• When securing the vehicle to a flatbed truck, do not attach to front or rear suspension
components. Damage to your vehicle may result from improper towing.
• Do not push or tow this vehicle with another vehicle as damage to the bumper fascia
and transmission may result.
The manufacturer recommends towing your vehicle with all four wheels OFF the ground
using a flatbed. If flatbed equipment is not available, and the transmission is operable,
the vehicle may be flat towed (with all four wheels on the ground) under the following
conditions:
• The transmission must be in NEUTRAL.
• The towing distance must not exceed 15 miles (24 km).
• The towing speed must not exceed 25 mph (40 km/h).
149
W H AT T O D O I N E M E R G E N C I E S
If the transmission is not operable, or the vehicle must be towed faster than 25 mph
(40 km/h) or farther than 15 miles (24 km), it must be towed with the front wheels OFF the
ground (using a flatbed truck, or wheel lift equipment with the front wheels raised).
CAUTION!
• Towing faster than 25 mph (40 km/h) or farther than 15 mi (24 km) with front wheels
on the ground can cause severe transmission damage. Damage from improper towing
is not covered under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
• Towing this vehicle in violation of the above requirements can cause severe transmission damage. Damage from improper towing is not covered under the New
Vehicle Limited Warranty.
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 DRIVE and REVERSE 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.
CAUTION!
Racing the engine or spinning the wheels may lead to transmission overheating and
failure. Allow the engine to idle with the transmission in NEUTRAL for at least one
minute after every five rocking-motion cycles. This will minimize overheating and
reduce the risk of transmission failure during prolonged efforts to free a stuck vehicle.
NOTE:
Push the "ESC Off" switch, to place the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system in
"Partial Off" mode before rocking the vehicle. Refer to “Electronic Brake Control
System” in “Starting and Operating” in your Owner’s Manual on
www.dodge.com/en/owners/manuals for further information. Once the vehicle has been
freed, push the "ESC Off" switch again to restore "ESC On" mode.
150
W H AT T O D O I N E M E R G E N C I E S
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.
CAUTION!
• When “rocking” a stuck vehicle by shifting between DRIVE 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).

MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES
For information on the maintenance procedures for your vehicle, please refer to “Maintenance Procedures” in “Maintaining Your Vehicle” in your Owner’s Manual or an
applicable supplement at www.dodge.com/en/owners/manuals for further information.
MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE
Your vehicle is equipped with an automatic oil change indicator system. The oil change
indicator system will remind you that it is time to take your vehicle in for scheduled
maintenance.
Based on engine operation conditions, the oil change indicator message will illuminate.
This means that service is required for your vehicle. Operating conditions such as frequent
short-trips, trailer tow, extremely hot or cold ambient temperatures, and E85 fuel usage
will influence when the “Oil Change Required” message is displayed. Severe Operating
Conditions can cause the change oil message to illuminate as early as 3,500 miles
(5,600 km) since last reset. Have your vehicle serviced as soon as possible, within the
next 500 miles (805 km).
Your authorized dealer will reset the oil change indicator message after completing the
scheduled oil change. If a scheduled oil change is performed by someone other than your
authorized dealer, the message can be reset by referring to the steps described under
“Instrument Cluster Warning Lights” in “What To Do In Emergencies” in this guide or
“Instrument Cluster Display” in “Understanding Your Instrument Panel” in your Owner's
Manual at www.dodge.com/en/owners/manuals for further details.
NOTE:
Under no circumstances should oil change intervals exceed 10,000 miles (16,000 km),
twelve months or 350 hours of engine run time, whichever comes first. The 350 hours of
engine run or idle time is generally only a concern for fleet customers.
Severe Duty All Models
Change engine oil at 4,000 miles (6,500 km) if the vehicle is operated in a dusty and off
road environment or is operated predominately at idle or only very low engine RPM’s. This
type of vehicle use is considered Severe Duty.
Once A Month Or Before A Long Trip:
• Check engine oil level.
• Check windshield washer fluid level.
• Check tire pressure and look for unusual wear or damage. Rotate tires at the first sign
of irregular wear, even if it occurs before the oil indicator system turns on.
• Check the fluid levels of the coolant reservoir, brake master cylinder, and power
steering and fill as needed.
• Check function of all interior and exterior lights.

FUSES
WARNING!
• When replacing a blown fuse, always use an appropriate replacement fuse with the
same amp rating as the original fuse. Never replace a fuse with another fuse of higher
amp rating. Never replace a blown fuse with metal wires or any other material. Failure
to use proper fuses may result in serious personal injury, fire and/or property damage.
• Before replacing a fuse, make sure that the ignition is off and that all the other
services are switched off and/or disengaged.
• If the replaced fuse blows again, contact an authorized dealer.
• If a general protection fuse for safety systems (air bag system, braking system),
power unit systems (engine system, gearbox system) or steering system blows,
contact an authorized dealer.
Totally Integrated Power Module (Fuses)
The Totally Integrated Power Module is located in the engine compartment near the
battery. Refer to the applicable “Engine Compartment” illustration in this section. This
center contains cartridge fuses and mini-fuses. A label that identifies each component
may be printed or embossed on the inside of the cover.
CAUTION!
• When installing the Totally Integrated Power Module cover, it is important to ensure
the cover is properly positioned and fully latched. Failure to do so may allow water to
get into the Integrated Power Module, and possibly result in a electrical system
failure.
• When replacing a blown fuse, it is important to use only a fuse having the correct
amperage rating. The use of a fuse with a rating other than indicated may result in a
dangerous electrical system overload. If a properly rated fuse continues to blow, it
indicates a problem in the circuit that must be corrected.

MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
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
increases tire flexing and can result in over-heating and tire failure. 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.
Always drive with each tire inflated to the recommended cold tire inflation pressure.
Tire And Loading Information Placard
This placard tells you important information
about the:
1. Number of people that can be carried in
the vehicle.
2. Total weight your vehicle can carry.
3. Tire size designed for your vehicle.
4. Cold tire inflation pressures for the front,
rear, and spare tires.
Tire And Loading Information Placard
Loading
The vehicle maximum load on the tire must not exceed the load carrying capacity of the
tire on your vehicle. You will not exceed the tire's load carrying capacity if you adhere to the
loading conditions, tire size, and cold tire inflation pressures specified on the Tire and
Loading Information placard in “Vehicle Loading” in the “Starting And Operating” section
of the Owner’s Manual, or the Tire Information Supplement, located in your Owner’s
Information kit.
NOTE:
Under a maximum loaded vehicle condition, gross axle weight ratings (GAWRs) for the
front and rear axles must not be exceeded. Refer to “Vehicle Loading” in “Starting And
Operating” in the Owner’s Manual, or the Tire Information Supplement, located in your
Owner’s Information kit for further information on GAWRs, vehicle loading, and trailer
towing.
To determine the maximum loading conditions of your vehicle, locate the statement “The
combined weight of occupants and cargo should never exceed XXX kg or XXX lbs” on the
Tire and Loading Information placard. The combined weight of occupants, cargo/luggage
and trailer tongue weight (if applicable) should never exceed the weight referenced here.
169
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
Steps For Determining Correct Load Limit—
(1) Locate the statement “The combined weight of occupants and cargo
should never exceed XXX kg or XXX lbs.” on your vehicle's placard.
(2) Determine the combined weight of the driver and passengers that will be
riding in your vehicle.
(3) Subtract the combined weight of the driver and passengers from XXX kg
or XXX lbs.
(4) The resulting figure equals the available amount of cargo and luggage
load capacity. For example, if “XXX” amount equals 1400 lbs. and there will
be five 150 lb passengers in your vehicle, the amount of available cargo and
luggage load capacity is 650 lbs. (1400-750 (5x150) = 650 lbs.)
(5) Determine the combined weight of luggage and cargo being loaded on
the vehicle. That weight may not safely exceed the available cargo and
luggage load capacity calculated in Step 4.
(6) If your vehicle will be towing a trailer, load from your trailer will be
transferred to your vehicle. Consult this manual to determine how this
reduces the available cargo and luggage load capacity of your vehicle.
Metric Example For Load Limit
For example, if “XXX” amount equals 635 kg, and there will be five 68 kg passengers in
your vehicle, the amount of available cargo and luggage load capacity is 295 kg (635-340
(5x68) = 295 kg) as shown in step 4.
NOTE:
• If your vehicle will be towing a trailer, load from your trailer will be transferred to your
vehicle. The following table shows examples on how to calculate total load, cargo/
luggage, and towing capacities of your vehicle with varying seating configurations and
number and size of occupants. This table is for illustration purposes only and may not
be accurate for the seating and load carry capacity of your vehicle.
• For the following example, the combined weight of occupants and cargo should never
exceed 865 lbs (392 kg).
170
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
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.
171
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
TIRES — GENERAL INFORMATION
Tire Pressure
Proper tire inflation pressure is essential to the safe and satisfactory operation of your
vehicle. Four primary areas are affected by improper tire pressure:
• Safety and Vehicle Stability
• Economy
• Tread Wear
• Ride Comfort
Safety
WARNING!
• Improperly inflated tires are dangerous and can cause collisions.
• Underinflation increases tire flexing and can result in overheating and tire failure.
• Overinflation reduces a tire's ability to cushion shock. Objects on the road and
chuckholes can cause damage that result in tire failure.
• Overinflated or underinflated tires can affect vehicle handling and can fail suddenly,
resulting in loss of vehicle control.
• Unequal tire pressures can cause steering problems. You could lose control of your
vehicle.
• Unequal tire pressures from one side of the vehicle to the other can cause the vehicle
to drift to the right or left.
• Always drive with each tire inflated to the recommended cold tire inflation pressure.
Both under-inflation and over-inflation affect the stability of the vehicle and can produce
a feeling of sluggish response or over responsiveness in the steering.
NOTE:
• Unequal tire pressures from side to side may cause erratic and unpredictable steering
response.
• Unequal tire pressure from side to side may cause the vehicle to drift left or right.
172
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
Fuel Economy
Underinflated tires will increase tire rolling resistance resulting in higher fuel consumption.
Tread Wear
Improper cold tire inflation pressures can cause abnormal wear patterns and reduced
tread life, resulting in the need for earlier tire replacement.
Ride Comfort And Vehicle Stability
Proper tire inflation contributes to a comfortable ride. Over-inflation produces a jarring
and uncomfortable ride.
Tire Inflation Pressures
The proper cold tire inflation pressure is listed on the driver's side B-Pillar or rear edge of
the driver's side door.
At least once a month:
• Check and adjust tire pressure with a good quality pocket-type pressure gauge. Do not
make a visual judgement when determining proper inflation. Tires may look properly
inflated even when they are under-inflated.
• Inspect tires for signs of tire wear or visible damage.
CAUTION!
After inspecting or adjusting the tire pressure, always reinstall the valve stem cap. This
will prevent moisture and dirt from entering the valve stem, which could damage the
valve stem.
Inflation pressures specified on the placard are always “cold tire inflation pressure”. Cold
tire inflation pressure is defined as the tire pressure after the vehicle has not been driven
for at least three hours, or driven less than 1 mile (1.6 km) after sitting for a minimum of
three hours. The cold tire inflation pressure must not exceed the maximum inflation
pressure molded into the tire sidewall.
Check tire pressures more often if subject to a wide range of outdoor temperatures, as tire
pressures vary with temperature changes.
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 = 68°F (20°C) and the outside temperature = 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.
Tire pressure may increase from 2 to 6 psi (13 to 40 kPa) during operation. DO NOT
reduce this normal pressure build up or your tire pressure will be too low.
173
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
Tire Pressures For High Speed Operation
The manufacturer advocates driving at safe speeds and within posted speed limits. Where
speed limits or conditions are such that the vehicle can be driven at high speeds,
maintaining correct tire inflation pressure is very important. Increased tire pressure and
reduced vehicle loading may be required for high-speed vehicle operation. Refer to your
authorized tire dealer or original equipment vehicle dealer for recommended safe
operating speeds, loading and cold tire inflation pressures.
WARNING!
High speed driving with your vehicle under maximum load is dangerous. The added
strain on your tires could cause them to fail. You could have a serious collision. Do not
drive a vehicle loaded to the maximum capacity at continuous speeds above 75 mph
(120 km/h).
Radial Ply Tires
WARNING!
Combining radial ply tires with other types of tires on your vehicle will cause your
vehicle to handle poorly. The instability could cause a collision. Always use radial ply
tires in sets of four. Never combine them with other types of tires.
Tire Repair
If your tire becomes damaged, it may be repaired if it meets the following criteria:
• The tire has not been driven on when flat.
• The damage is only on the tread section of your tire (sidewall damage is not repairable).
• The puncture is no greater than a ¼ of an inch (6 mm).
Consult an authorized tire dealer for tire repairs and additional information.
Damaged Run Flat tires, or Run Flat tires that have experienced a loss of pressure should
be replaced immediately with another Run Flat tire of identical size and service description (Load Index and Speed Symbol).
Tire Types
All Season Tires — If Equipped
All season tires provide traction for all seasons (Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter). Traction
levels may vary between different all season tires. All season tires can be identified by the
M+S, M&S, M/S or MS designation on the tire sidewall. Use all season tires only in sets
of four; failure to do so may adversely affect the safety and handling of your vehicle.
174
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
Summer Or Three Season Tires — If Equipped
Summer tires provide traction in both wet and dry conditions, and are not intended to be
driven in snow or on ice. If your vehicle is equipped with Summer tires, be aware these
tires are not designed for Winter or cold driving conditions. Install Winter tires on your
vehicle when ambient temperatures are less than 40°F (5°C) or if roads are covered with
ice or snow. For more information, contact an authorized dealer.
Summer tires do not contain the all season designation or mountain/snowflake symbol on
the tire sidewall. Use Summer tires only in sets of four; failure to do so may adversely
affect the safety and handling of your vehicle.
WARNING!
Do not use Summer tires in snow/ice conditions. You could lose vehicle control,
resulting in severe injury or death. Driving too fast for conditions also creates the
possibility of loss of vehicle control.
Snow Tires
Some areas of the country require the use of snow tires during the Winter. Snow tires can
be identified by a “mountain/snowflake” symbol on the tire sidewall.
If you need snow tires, select tires equivalent in size and type to the
original equipment tires. Use snow tires only in sets of four; failure to
do so may adversely affect the safety and handling of your vehicle.
Snow tires generally have lower speed ratings than what was originally
equipped with your vehicle and should not be operated at sustained
speeds over 75 mph (120 km/h). For speeds above 75 mph
(120 km/h), refer to original equipment or an authorized tire dealer for recommended safe
operating speeds, loading and cold tire inflation pressures.
While studded tires improve performance on ice, skid and traction capability on wet or dry
surfaces may be poorer than that of non-studded tires. Some states prohibit studded tires;
therefore, local laws should be checked before using these tire types.
Run Flat Tires — If Equipped
Run Flat tires allow you the capability to drive 50 miles (80 km) at 50 mph (80 km/h) after
a rapid loss of inflation pressure. This rapid loss of inflation is referred to as the Run Flat
mode. A Run Flat mode occurs when the tire inflation pressure is of/or below 14 psi
(96 kPa). Once a Run Flat tire reaches the Run Flat mode, it has limited driving
capabilities and needs to be replaced immediately. A Run Flat tire is not repairable.
It is not recommended to drive a vehicle loaded at full capacity, or to tow a trailer while a
tire is in the Run Flat mode.
See the tire pressure monitoring section for more information.
175
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
Spare Tires — If Equipped
NOTE:
For vehicles equipped with Tire Service Kit instead of a spare tire, please refer to the “Tire
Service Kit” section located in your Owner’s Information kit 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 and Collapsible 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.
176
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
Collapsible Spare Tire — If Equipped
The collapsible spare is for temporary emergency use only. You can identify if your vehicle
is equipped with a collapsible 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.
Collapsible spare tire description example: 165/80-17 101P.
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.
Inflate collapsible tire only after the wheel is properly installed to the vehicle. Inflate the
collapsible tire using the electric air pump before lowering the vehicle.
Do not install a wheel cover or attempt to mount a conventional tire on the collapsible
spare wheel, since the wheel is designed specifically for the collapsible spare tire.
WARNING!
Compact and Collapsible 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.
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.
177
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
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.
Tire Spinning
When stuck in mud, sand, snow, or ice conditions, do not spin your vehicle's wheels above
30 mph (48 km/h) or for longer than 30 seconds continuously without stopping.
Refer to “Freeing A Stuck Vehicle” in “What To Do In Emergencies” for further
information.
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) for more than 30 seconds continuously
when you are stuck, and do not let anyone near a spinning wheel, no matter what the
speed.
Tread Wear Indicators
Tread wear indicators are in the original equipment tires to help you in determining when
your tires should be replaced.
Tire Tread
1 — Worn Tire
2 — New Tire
These indicators are molded into the bottom of the tread grooves. They will appear as
bands when the tread depth becomes a 1/16 of an inch (1.6 mm). When the tread is worn
to the tread wear indicators, the tire should be replaced. Refer to “Replacement Tires” in
this section for further information.
178
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
Life Of Tire
The service life of a tire is dependent upon varying factors including, but not limited to:
• Driving style.
• Tire pressure – Improper cold tire inflation pressures can cause uneven wear patterns
to develop across the tire tread. These abnormal wear patterns will reduce tread life,
resulting in the need for earlier tire replacement.
• Distance driven.
• Performance tires, tires with a speed rating of V or higher, and Summer tires typically
have a reduced tread life. Rotation of these tires per the vehicle maintenance schedule
is highly recommended.
WARNING!
Tires and the spare tire should be replaced after six years, regardless of the remaining
tread. Failure to follow this warning can result in sudden tire failure. You could lose
control and have a collision resulting in serious injury or death.
Keep dismounted tires in a cool, dry place with as little exposure to light as possible.
Protect tires from contact with oil, grease, and gasoline.
Replacement Tires
The tires on your new vehicle provide a balance of many characteristics. They should be
inspected regularly for wear and correct cold tire inflation pressures. The manufacturer
strongly recommends that you use tires equivalent to the originals in size, quality and
performance when replacement is needed. Refer to the paragraph on “Tread Wear
Indicator” in this section. Refer to the Tire and Loading Information placard or the Vehicle
Certification Label for the size designation of your tire. The Load Index and Speed Symbol
for your tire will be found on the original equipment tire sidewall.
See the Tire Sizing Chart example found in the “Tire Safety Information” section of this
manual for more information relating to the Load Index and Speed Symbol of a tire.
It is recommended to replace the two front tires or two rear tires as a pair. Replacing just
one tire can seriously affect your vehicle’s handling. If you ever replace a wheel, make sure
that the wheel’s specifications match those of the original wheels.
It is recommended you contact your authorized tire dealer or original equipment dealer
with any questions you may have on tire specifications or capability. Failure to use
equivalent replacement tires may adversely affect the safety, handling, and ride of your
vehicle.
179
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
WARNING!
• Do not use a tire, wheel size or rating other than that specified for your vehicle. Some
combinations of unapproved tires and wheels may change suspension dimensions
and performance characteristics, resulting in changes to steering, handling, and
braking of your vehicle. This can cause unpredictable handling and stress to steering
and suspension components. You could lose control and have a collision resulting in
serious injury or death. Use only the tire and wheel sizes with load ratings approved
for your vehicle.
• Never use a tire with a smaller load index or capacity, other than what was originally
equipped on your vehicle. Using a tire with a smaller load index could result in tire
overloading and failure. You could lose control and have a collision.
• Failure to equip your vehicle with tires having adequate speed capability can result
in sudden tire failure and loss of vehicle control.
CAUTION!
Replacing original tires with tires of a different size may result in false speedometer and
odometer readings.
Wheel And Wheel Trim Care
All wheels and wheel trim, especially aluminum and chrome plated wheels, should be
cleaned regularly using mild (neutral Ph) soap and water to maintain their luster and to
prevent corrosion. Wash wheels with the same soap solution recommended for the body of
the vehicle.
Your wheels are susceptible to deterioration caused by salt, sodium chloride, magnesium
chloride, calcium chloride, etc., and other road chemicals used to melt ice or control dust
on dirt roads. Use a soft cloth or sponge and mild soap to wipe away promptly. Do not use
harsh chemicals or a stiff brush. They can damage the wheel’s protective coating that
helps keep them from corroding and tarnishing.
NOTE:
Many aftermarket wheel cleaners contain strong acids or strong alkaline additives that can
harm the wheel surface.
CAUTION!
Avoid products or automatic car washes that use acidic solutions or strong alkaline
additives or harsh brushes. These products and automatic car washes may damage the
wheel's protective finish. Such damage is not covered by the New Vehicle Limited
Warranty. Only car wash soap, Mopar Wheel Cleaner or equivalent is recommended.
180
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
When cleaning extremely dirty wheels including excessive brake dust, care must be taken
in the selection of tire and wheel cleaning chemicals and equipment to prevent damage
to the wheels. Mopar Wheel Treatment, Mopar Chrome Cleaner, or their equivalent is
recommended or select a non-abrasive, non-acidic cleaner for aluminum or chrome
wheels. Do not use any products on Dark Vapor or Black Satin Chrome Wheels. They will
permanently damage this finish and such damage is not covered by the New Vehicle
Limited Warranty.
CAUTION!
Do not use scouring pads, steel wool, a bristle brush, metal polishes or oven cleaner.
These products may damage the wheel's protective finish. Such damage is not covered
by the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Only car wash soap, Mopar Wheel Cleaner or
equivalent is recommended.
NOTE:
If you intend parking or storing your vehicle for an extended period after cleaning the
wheels with wheel cleaner, drive your vehicle for a few minutes before doing so. Driving the
vehicle and applying the brakes when stopping will reduce the risk of brake rotor
corrosion.
Dark Vapor Or Black Satin Chrome Wheels
CAUTION!
If your vehicle is equipped with Dark Vapor or Black Satin Chrome wheels DO NOT USE
wheel cleaners, abrasives or polishing compounds. They will permanently damage this
finish and such damage is not covered by the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. USE
ONLY MILD SOAP AND WATER WITH A SOFT CLOTH. Used on a regular basis; this is
all that is required to maintain this finish.
181
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION UNIFORM TIRE QUALITY
GRADES
The following tire grading categories were established by the National
Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The specific grade rating assigned by
the tire's manufacturer in each category is shown on the sidewall of the tires
on your vehicle.
All passenger vehicle tires must conform to Federal safety requirements in
addition to these grades.
Treadwear
The Treadwear grade is a comparative rating, based on the wear rate of the
tire when tested under controlled conditions on a specified government test
course. For example, a tire graded 150 would wear one and one-half times
as well on the government course as a tire graded 100. The relative
performance of tires depends upon the actual conditions of their use,
however, and may depart significantly from the norm due to variations in
driving habits, service practices, and differences in road characteristics and
climate.
Traction Grades
The Traction grades, from highest to lowest, are AA, A, B, and C. These
grades represent the tire's ability to stop on wet pavement, as measured
under controlled conditions on specified government test surfaces of asphalt
and concrete. A tire marked C may have poor traction performance.
WARNING!
The traction grade assigned to this tire is based on straight-ahead braking
traction tests, and does not include acceleration, cornering, hydroplaning,
or peak traction characteristics.
Temperature Grades
The temperature grades are A (the highest), B, and C, representing the tire's
resistance to the generation of heat and its ability to dissipate heat, when
tested under controlled conditions on a specified indoor laboratory test
wheel. Sustained high temperature can cause the material of the tire to
degenerate and reduce tire life, and excessive temperature can lead to
sudden tire failure. The grade C corresponds to a level of performance, which
182
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
all passenger vehicle tires must meet under the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety
Standard No. 109. Grades B and A represent higher levels of performance
on the laboratory test wheel, than the minimum required by law.
WARNING!
The temperature grade for this tire is established for a tire that is properly
inflated and not overloaded. Excessive speed, under-inflation, or excessive loading, either separately or in combination, can cause heat buildup
and possible tire failure.
ADDING FUEL
Materials Added To Fuel
Designated TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline contains a higher level of
detergents to further aide in minimizing engine and fuel system
deposits. When available, the usage of Top Tier Detergent gasoline is
recommended. Visit www.toptiergas.com for a list of TOP TIER
Detergent Gasoline Retailers.
Indiscriminate use of fuel system cleaning agents should be avoided.
Many of these materials intended for gum and varnish removal may
contain active solvents or similar ingredients. These can harm fuel system gasket and
diaphragm materials.
Fuel Filler Cap (Gas Cap)
The gas cap is located behind the fuel filler door on the left side of the vehicle. If the gas
cap is lost or damaged, be sure the replacement cap is for use with this vehicle.
When the fuel nozzle “clicks” or shuts off,
the fuel tank is full.
Tighten the gas cap until you hear a “clicking” sound. This is an indication that the
gas cap is properly tightened. If not properly
tightened, the MIL (Malfunction Indicator
Light) may come on.
NOTE:
The driver’s side sliding door cannot be
opened while the fuel door is open.
Fuel Filler
183
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
WARNING!
• Never have any smoking materials lit in or near the vehicle when the gas cap is
removed or the tank filled.
• Never add fuel when the engine is running. This is in violation of most state and
federal fire regulations and/or local bylaws, and will cause the MIL to turn on.
• A fire may result if gasoline is pumped into a portable container that is inside of a
vehicle. You could be burned. Always place gas containers on the ground while
filling.
CAUTION!
• Damage to the fuel system or emissions control system could result from using an
improper gas cap. A poorly fitting cap could let impurities into the fuel system and
may cause the MIL to turn on, due to fuel vapors escaping from the system.
• To avoid fuel spillage and overfilling, do not “top off” the fuel tank after filling.
FLEXIBLE FUEL — IF EQUIPPED
E-85 General Information
The information in this section is unique for Flexible Fuel vehicles only. These vehicles
can be identified by a unique fuel filler door label that states Ethanol (E-85) or Unleaded
Gasoline Only and a yellow fuel cap. Refer to the Owner’s Manual for further information.
CAUTION!
Only vehicles with the E-85 fuel filler door label or a yellow gas cap can operate on
E-85.
