The driver’s primary responsibility is the safe operation of the vehicle. Driving while distracted can
result in loss of vehicle control, resulting in a collision and personal injury. FCA US LLC strongly
recommends that the driver use extreme caution when using any device or feature that may take
their attention off the road. Use of any electrical devices, such as cellular telephones, computers,
portable radios, vehicle navigation or other devices, by the driver while the vehicle is moving is
dangerous and could lead to a serious collision. Texting while driving is also dangerous and should
never be done while the vehicle is moving. If you find yourself unable to devote your full attention
to vehicle operation, pull off the road to a safe location and stop your vehicle. Some states or
provinces prohibit the use of cellular telephones or texting while driving. It is always the driver’s
responsibility to comply with all local laws.
This guide has been prepared to help you get quickly acquainted with your new Chrysler
Brand Vehicle and to provide a convenient reference source for common questions.
However, it is not a substitute for your Owner’s Manual. For complete operational
instructions, maintenance procedures and important safety messages, please consult
your Owner’s Manual, Navigation/Uconnect Manuals and other Warning Labels in your
vehicle. Not all features shown in this guide may apply to your vehicle. For additional
information on accessories to help personalize your vehicle, visit mopar.com (U.S.),
mopar.ca (Canada) or your local Chrysler brand dealer.
D R I V I N G A N D A L C O H O L : Drunken driving is one of the most frequent
causes of collisions. Your driving ability can be seriously impaired with blood alcohol levels
far below the legal minimum. If you are drinking, don’t drive. Ride with a designated
non-drinking driver, call a cab, a friend, or use public transportation.
WARNING!
I M P O R T A N T: This User Guide is intended to familiarize you with the important
features of your vehicle. The DVD enclosed contains your Owner’s Manual, Navigation/
Uconnect Manuals, Warranty Booklets, Tire Warranty and Roadside Assistance
(new vehicles purchased in the U.S.) or Roadside Assistance (new vehicles purchased
in Canada) in electronic format. We hope you find it useful. Replacement DVD kits may
be purchased by visiting www.techauthority.com.
Driving after drinking can lead to a collision. Your perceptions are less sharp, your
reflexes are slower, and your judgment is impaired when you have been drinking.
Never drink and then drive.

INTRODUCTION/WELCOME
WELCOME FROM 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 - all essentials that are
traditional to our vehicles.
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 the DVD in the owner’s
kit provided at the time of new vehicle purchase. For your convenience, the information
contained on the DVD may also be printed and saved for future reference.
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.

VEHICLES SOLD IN CANADA
With respect to any vehicles sold in Canada, the name FCA US LLC shall be deemed to be
deleted and the name FCA Canada Inc. used in substitution (excluding legal lines).
WARNING!
• Pedals that cannot move freely can cause loss of vehicle control and increase the risk of
serious personal injury.
• Always make sure that objects cannot fall into the driver foot well while the vehicle is
moving. Objects can become trapped under the brake pedal and accelerator pedal causing
a loss of vehicle control.
• Failure to properly follow floor mat installation or mounting can cause interference with the
brake pedal and accelerator pedal operation causing loss of control of the vehicle.
• Never leave children alone in a vehicle, or with access to an unlocked vehicle. Allowing
children to be in a vehicle unattended is dangerous for a number of reasons. A child or
others could be seriously or fatally injured. Children should be warned not to touch the
parking brake, brake pedal or the 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 on the DVD for further details.

USE OF AFTERMARKET PRODUCTS (ELECTRONICS)
The use of aftermarket devices including cell phones, MP3 players, GPS systems, or chargers
may affect the performance of on-board wireless features including Keyless Enter-N-Go and
Remote Start range. If you are experiencing difficulties with any of your wireless features, try
disconnecting your aftermarket devices to see if the situation improves. If your symptoms persist,
please see an authorized dealer.
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.

simply opened by pushing the glow-in-thedark handle attached to the trunk latching
mechanism to the right.
Emergency Trunk Release
WARNING!
Do not allow children to have access to the trunk, either by climbing into the trunk from
outside, or through the inside of the vehicle. Always close the trunk lid when your vehicle is
unattended. Once in the trunk, young children may not be able to escape, even if they entered
through the rear seat. If trapped in the trunk, children can die from suffocation or heat stroke.
VEHICLE SECURITY ALARM
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 trunk release are disabled. If something triggers the alarm, the Vehicle Security Alarm
will provide the following audible and visible signals: the horn will pulse, the park lamps and/or
turn signals will flash, and the Vehicle Security Light in the instrument cluster will flash.

Cycle the Keyless Enter-N-Go START/STOP button until the button display indicates that the
vehicle ignition is “OFF.” Push the power door lock switch while the door is open, push the key fob
LOCK button, or with one of the key fobs located outside the vehicle and within 5 ft (1.5 m) of the
driver's and passenger front door handles, push the Keyless Enter-N-Go LOCK button located
on the door handle.
NOTE:
After pushing the Keyless Enter-N-Go LOCK button, you must wait two seconds before you can
lock or unlock the vehicle via the door handle.

G E T T I N G S TA R T E D
To Disarm
Push the key fob UNLOCK button or with one of the key fobs located outside the vehicle and
within 5 ft (1.5 m) of the driver's and passenger front door handles. Grab the Keyless Enter-N-Go
door handle and enter the vehicle, then push the Keyless Enter-N-Go START/STOP button
(requires at least one valid key fob in the vehicle).
SEAT BELT
Lap/Shoulder Belts
All seating positions in your vehicle are equipped with lap/shoulder belts.
Be sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and using a seat belt properly.
Position the lap belt so that it is snug and lies low across your hips, below your abdomen. To
remove slack in the lap belt portion, pull up on the shoulder belt. To loosen the lap belt if it is too
tight, tilt the latch plate and pull on the lap belt. A snug seat belt reduces the risk of sliding under
the seat belt in a collision.
Position the shoulder belt across the shoulder and chest with minimal, if any slack so that it is
comfortable and not resting on your neck. The retractor will withdraw any slack in the shoulder
belt.
Seat Belt Pretensioner
The front seat belt system is equipped with pretensioning devices that are designed to remove
slack from the seat belt in the event of a collision.
A deployed pretensioner or a deployed air bag must be replaced immediately.
WARNING!
• In a collision, you and your passengers can suffer much greater injuries if you are not
properly buckled up. You can strike the interior of your vehicle or other passengers, or you
can be thrown out of the vehicle. Always be sure you and others in your vehicle are buckled
up properly.
• A shoulder belt placed behind you will not protect you from injury during a collision. You are
more likely to hit your head in a collision if you do not wear your shoulder belt. The lap and
shoulder belt are meant to be used together.
• A seat belt that is too loose will not protect you properly. In a sudden stop, you could move
too far forward, increasing the possibility of injury. Wear your seat belt snugly.
• A frayed or torn seat belt could rip apart in a collision and leave you with no protection.
Inspect the seat belt system periodically, checking for cuts, frays, or loose parts. Damaged
parts must be replaced immediately. Do not disassemble or modify the system. Seat belt
assemblies must be replaced after a collision.

seat belts. Advanced Front Air Bags are not expected to reduce the risk of injury in rear, side, or
rollover collisions.
The Advanced Front Air Bags will not deploy in all frontal collisions, including some that may
produce substantial vehicle damage — for example, some pole collisions, truck underrides, and
angle offset collisions.
On the other hand, depending on the type and location of impact, Advanced Front Air Bags may
deploy in crashes with little vehicle front-end damage but that produce a severe initial deceleration.
Because air bag sensors measure vehicle deceleration over time, vehicle speed and damage by
themselves are not good indicators of whether or not an air bag should have deployed.
Seat belts are necessary for your protection in all collisions, and also are needed to help keep you
in position, away from an inflating air bag.
After any collision, the vehicle should be taken to an authorized dealer immediately.
18
G E T T I N G S TA R T E D
Do not drive your vehicle after the air bags have deployed. If you are involved in another collision,
the air bags will not be in place to protect you.
If it is necessary to modify the air bag system for persons with disabilities, contact your authorized
dealer.
Refer to the Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details regarding the Supplemental
Restraint System (SRS).
Occupant Classification System
This vehicle is equipped with a right front passenger Occupant Classification System (“OCS”)
that is designed to provide Passenger Advanced Front Air Bag output appropriate to the
occupant’s seated weight input, as determined by the OCS.
The Occupant Classification System (OCS) consists of the following:
• Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC)
• Occupant Classification Module (OCM) and Sensor located in the front passenger seat
• Air Bag Warning Light
The OCS will NOT prevent deployment of the Passenger Advanced Front Air Bag. The OCS may
reduce the inflation rate of the Passenger Advanced Front Air Bag if the OCS estimates that:
• The front passenger seat is unoccupied or has very light objects on it; or
• The front passenger seat is occupied by a small passenger, including a child; or
• The front passenger seat is occupied by a rear-facing child restraint; or
• The front passenger is not properly seated or his or her weight is taken off of the seat for a
period of time.

* It is possible for a child to be classified as an adult, allowing a full-power Passenger Advanced
Front Air Bag deployment. Never allow children to ride in the front passenger seat and never
install a child restraint system, including a rear-facing child restraint, in the front passenger seat.
The OCS determines the front passenger’s most probable classification.
The OCS estimates the seated weight on the front passenger seat and where that weight is
located. The OCS communicates the classification status to the ORC. The ORC uses the
classification to determine whether the Passenger Advanced Front Air Bag inflation rate should
be adjusted. In order for the OCS to operate as designed, it is important for the front passenger
to be seated properly and properly wearing the seat belt. Properly seated passengers are:
• Sitting upright
19
G E T T I N G S TA R T E D
• Facing forward
• Sitting in the center of the seat with their feet comfortably on or near the floor
• Sitting with their back against the seatback and the seatback in an upright position
Seated Properly
Lighter Weight Passengers (Including Small Adults)
When a lighter weight passenger, including a small adult, occupies the front passenger seat, the
OCS may reduce the inflation rate of the Passenger Advanced Front Air Bag. This does not
mean that the OCS is working improperly.
Do not decrease OR increase the front passenger’s seated weight on the front passenger
seat
The front passenger’s seated weight must be properly positioned on the front passenger seat.
Failure to do so may result in serious injury or death. The OCS determines the most probable
classification of the occupant that it detects. The OCS will detect the front passenger’s decreased or increased seated weight, which may result in an adjusted inflation rate of the
Passenger Advanced Front Air Bag in a collision. This does not mean that the OCS is working
improperly. Decreasing the front passenger’s seated weight on the front passenger seat may
result in a reduced-power deployment of the Passenger Advanced Front Air Bag. Increasing the
front passenger’s seated weight on the front passenger seat may result in a full-power deployment of the Passenger Advanced Front Air Bag. Examples of improper front passenger seating
include:
• The front passenger’s weight is transferred to another part of the vehicle (like the door, arm
rest or instrument panel).
• The front passenger leans forward, sideways, or turns to face the rear of the vehicle.
• The front passenger’s seatback is not in the full upright position.
• The front passenger carries or holds an object while seated (e.g., backpack, box, etc.).
• Objects are lodged under the front passenger seat.
• Objects are lodged between the front passenger seat and center console.
• Accessories that may change the seated weight on the front passenger seat are attached to
the front passenger seat.
• Anything that may decrease or increase the front passenger’s seated weight.
20
G E T T I N G S TA R T E D
The OCS determines the front passenger’s most probable classification. If an occupant in the
front passenger seat is seated improperly, the occupant may provide an output signal to the OCS
that is different from the occupant’s properly seated weight input, for example:
The Air Bag Warning Light in the instrument
panel
will turn on whenever the OCS is
unable to classify the front passenger seat status. A malfunction in the OCS may affect the
operation of the air bag system.
If the Air Bag Warning Light
does not
come on, or stays on after you start the vehicle,
or it comes on as you drive, take the vehicle to
an authorized dealer for service immediately.
Not Seated Properly
The passenger seat assembly contains critical
OCS components that may affect the Passenger Advanced Front Air Bag inflation. In order
for the OCS to properly classify the seated
weight of a front seat passenger, the OCS
components must function as designed.
Do not make any modifications to the front
passenger seat components, assembly, or to
the seat cover. If the seat, trim cover, or cushion
needs service for any reason, take the vehicle to
your authorized dealer. Only FCA US LLC
approved seat accessories may be used.
Not Seated Properly
The following requirements must be strictly
followed:
• Do not modify the front passenger seat assembly or components in any way.
• Do not use prior or future model year seat
covers or cushions not designated by FCA
US LLC for the specific model being repaired. Always use the correct seat cover
and cushion specified for the vehicle.
Not Seated Properly
• Do not replace the seat cover or cushion
with an aftermarket seat cover or cushion.
• Do not add a secondary seat cover or mat.
• At no time should any Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) component or SRS related component or fastener be modified or
replaced with any part except those which
are approved by FCA US LLC.

Supplemental Knee Air Bags
This vehicle is equipped with a Supplemental Driver Knee Air Bag mounted in the instrument
panel below the steering column and a Supplemental Passenger Knee Air Bag mounted in the
instrument panel below the glove compartment. The Supplemental Knee Air Bags provide
enhanced protection during a frontal impact by working together with the seat belts, pretensioners, and Advanced Front Air Bags.
WARNING!
• Relying on the air bags alone could lead to more severe injuries in a collision. The air bags
work with your seat belt to restrain you properly. In some collisions, the air bags won't deploy
at all. Always wear your seat belts even though you have air bags.
• Being too close to the steering wheel or instrument panel during Advanced Front Air Bag
deployment could cause serious injury, including death. Air bags need room to inflate. Sit
back, comfortably extending your arms to reach the steering wheel or instrument panel.
• No objects should be placed over or near the air bag on the instrument panel or steering
wheel because any such objects could cause harm if the vehicle is in a collision severe
enough to cause the air bag to inflate.
WARNING!
• Relying on the air bags alone could lead to more severe injuries in a collision. The air bags
work with your seat belt to restrain you properly. In some collisions, the air bags won't deploy
at all. Always wear your seat belts even though you have air bags.
• Being too close to the steering wheel or instrument panel during Advanced Front Air Bag

• 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.
Supplemental Side Air Bags
This vehicle is equipped with Supplemental Seat-Mounted Side Air Bags (SABs) located in the
outboard side of the front seats. The SABs are marked with a SRS AIRBAG or AIRBAG label
sewn into the outboard side of the seats.
This vehicle is equipped with Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtains (SABICs) located
above the side windows. The trim covering the SABICs is labeled SRS AIRBAG or AIRBAG. The
SABICs may help reduce the risk of partial or complete ejection of vehicle occupants through
side windows in certain rollover or side impact events.
22
G E T T I N G S TA R T E D
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.
WARNING!
• Side Air Bags need room to inflate. Do not lean against the door or window. Sit upright in
the center of the seat.
• Being too close to the Side Air Bags during deployment could cause you to be severely
injured or killed.
• Relying on the Side Air Bags alone could lead to more severe injuries in a collision. The Side
Air Bags work with your seat belt to restrain you properly. In some collisions, Side Air Bags
won’t deploy at all. Always wear your seat belt even though you have Side Air Bags.
• This vehicle is equipped with left and right Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtains
(SABICs). Do not stack luggage or other cargo up high enough to block the deployment of
the SABICs. The trim covering above the side windows where the SABIC and its deployment path are located should remain free from any obstructions.
• This vehicle is equipped with SABICs. In order for the SABICs to work as intended, do not
install any accessory items in your vehicle which could alter the roof. Do not add an
aftermarket sunroof to your vehicle. Do not add roof racks that require permanent attachments (bolts or screws) for installation on the vehicle roof. Do not drill into the roof of the
vehicle for any reason.
• Do not use accessory seat covers or place objects between you and the Side Air Bags; the
performance could be adversely affected and/or objects could be pushed into you, causing
serious injury.
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 pushed.
The hazard lights can be deactivated by pushing 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.
23
G E T T I N G S TA R T E D
Air Bag Warning Light
The air bags must be ready to inflate for your protection in a collision. The Occupant Restraint
Controller (ORC) monitors the internal circuits and interconnecting wiring associated with air
bag system electrical components.
The ORC 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 turns on the Air Bag Warning Light in the instrument panel for approximately four to
eight seconds for a self-check when the ignition switch is first turned to the ON/RUN position.
After the self-check, the Air Bag Warning Light will turn off. 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.
If the Air Bag Warning Light in the instrument panel is not on during the four to eight seconds
when the ignition switch is first turned to the ON/RUN position, stays on, or turns on while
driving, have the vehicle serviced by an authorized service center immediately.
NOTE:
If the speedometer, tachometer, or any engine related gauges are not working, the Occupant
Restraint Controller (ORC) may also be disabled. In this condition the air bags may not be ready
to inflate for your protection. Have an authorized dealer service the air bag system immediately.
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.
24
G E T T I N G S TA R T E D
CHILD RESTRAINTS
Children 12 years or younger should ride properly buckled up in a rear seat, if available. According
to crash statistics, children are safer when properly restrained in the rear seats rather than in the
front.
Every state in the United States and all Canadian provinces require that small children ride in
proper restraint systems. This is the law, and you can be prosecuted for ignoring it.

LATCH — Lower Anchors And Tethers For CHildren
Your vehicle is equipped with the child restraint anchorage system called LATCH, which stands
for Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren.
The rear outboard seating positions have lower anchors and top tether anchors. The rear center
seating position has a top tether anchor only.
LATCH System Weight Limit
You may use the LATCH anchorage system until the combined weight of the child and the child
restraint is 65 lbs (29.5 kg). Use the seat belt and tether anchor instead of the LATCH system
once the combined weight is more than 65 lbs (29.5 kg).
Locating LATCH Anchorages
The lower anchorages are round bars that
are found at the rear of the seat cushion where
it meets the seatback, below the anchorage
symbols on the seatback. They are just visible
when you lean into the rear seat to install the
child restraint. You will easily feel them if you
run your finger along the gap between the
seatback and seat cushion.
Lower Anchors
25
G E T T I N G S TA R T E D
Locating Tether Anchorages
In addition, there are tether strap anchorages behind each rear seating position located in the
panel between the rear seatback and the rear window. These tether strap anchorages are under a
plastic cover with the tether anchorage symbol on it.
Tether Anchorage Location
Center Seat LATCH
Do not install child restraints with rigid lower attachments in the center seating position. Only
install this type of child restraint in the outboard seating positions. Child restraints with flexible,
webbing mounted lower attachments can be installed in any rear seating position. In the center
position, the inner anchorages are 17.7 inches (450 mm) apart.
Installing The Child Restraint Using The LATCH Lower Anchors
NOTE:
Never “share” a LATCH anchorage with two or more child restraints.
1. Loosen the adjusters on the lower straps and on the tether strap of the child seat so that you
can more easily attach the hooks or connectors to the vehicle anchorages.
2. Attach the lower hooks or connectors of the child restraint to the lower anchorages in the
selected seating position.
3. If the child restraint has a tether strap, connect it to the top tether anchorage. See below for
directions to attach a tether anchor.
4. Tighten all of the straps as you push the child restraint rearward and downward into the seat.
Remove slack in the straps according to the child restraint manufacturer’s instructions.
5. Test that the child restraint is installed tightly by pulling back and forth on the child seat at the
belt path. It should not move more than 1 inch (25.4 mm) in any direction.
26
G E T T I N G S TA R T E D
Installing The Child Restraint Using The Vehicle Seat Belts
The seat belts in the passenger seating positions are equipped with a Switchable Automatic
Locking Retractor (ALR) that is designed to keep the lap portion of the seat belt tight around the
child restraint. Any seat belt system will loosen with time, so check the belt occasionally, and pull
it tight if necessary.
Tether Anchorage Weight Limit
Always use the tether anchor when using the seat belt to install a forward facing child restraint, up
to the recommended weight limit of the child restraint.
To Install A Child Seat Using An ALR
1. Pull enough of the seat belt webbing from the retractor to pass it through the belt path of the
child restraint. Do not twist the belt webbing in the belt path.
2. Slide the latch plate into the buckle until you hear a “click.”
3. Pull on the webbing to make the lap portion tight against the child seat.
4. To lock the seat belt, pull down on the shoulder part of the belt until you have pulled all the seat
belt webbing out of the retractor. Then, allow the webbing to retract back into the retractor. As
the webbing retracts, you will hear a clicking sound. This means the seat belt is now in the
Automatic Locking mode.
5. Try to pull the webbing out of the retractor. If it is locked, you should not be able to pull out any
webbing. If the retractor is not locked, repeat the last step.
6. Finally, pull up on any extra webbing to tighten the lap portion around the child restraint while
you push the child restraint rearward and downward into the vehicle seat.
7. If the child restraint has a top tether strap and the seating position has a top tether anchorage,
connect the tether strap to the anchorage and tighten the tether strap. See below for
directions to attach a tether anchor.
8. Test that the child restraint is installed tightly by pulling back and forth on the child seat at the
belt path. It should not move more than 1 inch (25.4 mm) in any direction.
Installing The Top Tether Strap (With Either Lower Anchors Or Vehicle
Seat Belt)
When installing a forward-facing child restraint, always secure the top tether strap, up to the
tether anchor weight limit, whether the child restraint is installed with the lower anchors or the
vehicle seat belt.
Tether Strap Installation
1. Rotate or lift the cover to access the anchor directly behind the seat where you are placing the
child restraint.
2. Route the tether strap to provide the most direct path for the strap between the anchor and
the child seat.
27
G E T T I N G S TA R T E D
3. If your vehicle is equipped with adjustable rear head restraints, raise the head restraint, and
where possible, route the tether strap under the head restraint and between the two posts. If
not possible, lower the head restraint and pass the tether strap around the outboard side of the
head restraint.
4. Attach the tether strap hook of the child restraint to the top tether anchorage and remove
slack in the tether strap according to the child restraint manufacturer’s instructions.
Tether Strap Attachment

WARNING!
• In a collision, an unrestrained child, even a tiny baby, can become a projectile inside the
vehicle. The force required to hold even an infant on your lap could become so great that
you could not hold the child, no matter how strong you are. The child and others could be
severely injured or killed. Any child riding in your vehicle should be in a proper restraint for
the child's size.
• Never place a rear-facing child restraint in front of an air bag. A deploying Passenger
Advanced Front Air Bag can cause death or serious injury to a child 12 years or younger,
including a child in a rear-facing child restraint.
• Only use a rear-facing child restraint in a vehicle with a rear seat.
• Improper installation of a child restraint to the LATCH anchorages can lead to failure of an
infant or child restraint. The child could be severely injured or killed. Follow the manufacturer’s directions exactly when installing an infant or child restraint.
• An incorrectly anchored tether strap could lead to increased head motion and possible
injury to the child. Use only the anchor positions directly behind the child seat to secure a
child restraint top tether strap.
• If your vehicle is equipped with a split rear seat, make sure the tether strap does not slip into
the opening between the seatbacks as you remove slack in the strap.
28
G E T T I N G S TA R T E D
HEAD RESTRAINTS
Head restraints are designed to reduce the risk of injury by restricting head movement in the
event of a rear impact. Head restraints should be adjusted so that the top of the head restraint is
located above the top of your ear.
WARNING!
The head restraints for all occupants must be properly adjusted prior to operating the vehicle
or occupying a seat. Head restraints should never be adjusted while the vehicle is in motion.
Driving a vehicle with the head restraints improperly adjusted or removed could cause serious
injury or death in the event of a collision.
NOTE:
Do not reverse the head restraints (making the rear of the head restraint face forward) in an
attempt to gain additional clearance to the back of your head.
Reactive Head Restraints — Front Seats
The front driver and passenger seats are equipped with Reactive Head Restraints (RHR). In the
event of a rear impact the RHRs will automatically extend forward minimizing the gap between
the back of the occupant’s head and the RHR.
The RHRs will automatically return to their normal position following a rear impact. If the RHRs
do not return to their normal position see your authorized dealer immediately.
To raise the head restraint, pull upward on the head restraint. To lower the head restraint, push the
adjustment button, located at the base of the head restraint, and push downward on the head
restraint.
NOTE:
To remove the head restraint, raise it as far as it can go then push the release button and the
adjustment button at the base of each post while pulling the head restraint up. Seatback angle
may need to be adjusted to fully remove the head restraint. To reinstall the head restraint, put the
head restraint posts into the holes and push downward. Then adjust the head restraint to the
appropriate height.
WARNING!
• A loose head restraint thrown forward in a collision or hard stop could cause serious injury or
death to occupants of the vehicle. Always securely stow removed head restraints in a
location outside the occupant compartment.
• ALL the head restraints MUST be reinstalled in the vehicle to properly protect the
occupants. Follow the re-installation instructions above prior to operating the vehicle or
occupying a seat.
• Do not place items over the top of the Reactive Head Restraint, such as coats, seat covers
or portable DVD players. These items may interfere with the operation of the Reactive
Head Restraint in the event of a collision and could result in serious injury or death.

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 the DVD 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.

O P E R AT I N G YO U R V E H I C L E
WARNING!
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is a convenience system. It is not a substitute for active
driving involvement. It is always the driver’s responsibility to be attentive of road, traffic, and
weather conditions, vehicle speed, distance to the vehicle ahead; and, most importantly, brake
operation to ensure safe operation of the vehicle under all road conditions. Your complete
attention is always required while driving to maintain safe control of your vehicle. Failure to
follow these warnings can result in a collision and death or serious personal injury.
The ACC system:
• Does not react to pedestrians, oncoming vehicles, and stationary objects (e.g., a stopped
vehicle in a traffic jam or a disabled vehicle).
• Cannot take street, traffic, and weather conditions into account, and may be limited upon
adverse sight distance conditions.
• Does not always fully recognize complex driving conditions, which can result in wrong or
missing distance warnings.
• Will bring the vehicle to a complete stop while following a target vehicle and hold the
vehicle for approximately 3 minutes in the stop position. If the target vehicle does not start
moving within 3 minutes the parking brake will be activated, and the ACC system will be
cancelled.
You should switch off the ACC system:
• When driving in fog, heavy rain, heavy snow, sleet, heavy traffic, and complex driving
situations (i.e., in highway construction zones).
• When entering a turn lane or highway off ramp; when driving on roads that are winding, icy,
snow-covered, slippery, or have steep uphill or downhill slopes.
• When towing a trailer up or down steep slopes.
• When circumstances do not allow safe driving at a constant speed.
The Cruise Control system has two control modes:
• Adaptive Cruise Control mode for maintaining an appropriate distance between vehicles.
• Normal (fixed speed) electronic speed control mode for cruising at a constant preset speed.
For additional information, refer to “Normal (Fixed Speed) Cruise Control Mode” section
in the Owners Manual on your DVD.
Normal (fixed speed) electronic speed control will not react to preceding vehicles. Always be
aware of the mode selected.
You can change the mode by using the Cruise Control buttons. The two control modes
function differently. Always confirm which mode is selected.

FORWARD COLLISION WARNING (FCW ) WITH
MITIGATION
The Forward Collision Warning (FCW) system with mitigation provides the driver with audible
warnings, visual warnings (within the EVIC/DID), and may apply a brake jerk to warn the driver
when it detects a potential frontal collision. The warnings and limited braking are intended to
provide the driver with enough time to react, avoid or mitigate the potential collision.
• FCW monitors the information from the forward looking sensors as well as the Electronic
Brake Controller (EBC), to calculate the probability of a forward collision. When the system
determines that a forward collision is probable, the driver will be provided with audible and
visual warnings and may provide a brake jerk warning.
• If the driver does not take action based upon these progressive warnings, then the system will
provide a limited level of active braking to help slow the vehicle and mitigate the potential
forward collision. If the driver reacts to the warnings by braking and the system determines that
the driver intends to avoid the collision by braking but has not applied sufficient brake force,
the system will compensate and provide additional brake force as required.
Turning FCW ON Or OFF
NOTE:
The default status of FCW is “On,” this allows the system to warn you of a possible collision with
the vehicle in front of you when you are farther away and it applies limited braking. This gives you
the most reaction time to avoid a possible collision.
The forward collision button is on the switch panel that is located in the center of the instrument
panel.
• To turn the FCW system OFF, push the
forward collision button once (LED turns
on).
• To turn the FCW system back ON, push the
forward collision button again (LED turns
off).
Changing FCW Status
The FCW feature has two settings and can be
changed within the Uconnect System Screen:
• Far
• Near
NOTE:
The FCW and active braking settings can only
be changed when the vehicle is in PARK.
46
Forward Collision Button
O P E R AT I N G YO U R V E H I C L E
Far
The default status of FCW is the “Far” setting.
The far setting provides warnings for potential collisions more distant in front of the vehicle,
allowing the driver to have the most reaction time to avoid a collision.
This setting is designed to provide early warnings per NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration) recommendations.
More cautious drivers that do not mind frequent warnings may prefer this setting.
NOTE:
This setting gives you the most reaction time.
Near
Changing the FCW status to the “Near” setting, allows the system to warn you of a potential
frontal collision when you are much closer.
This setting provides less reaction time than the “Far” setting, which allows for a more dynamic
driving experience.
More dynamic or aggressive drivers that want to avoid frequent warnings may prefer this setting.
Off
Changing the FCW status to “Off” prevents the system from warning you of a possible collision
with the vehicle in front of you.
Turning Active Braking ON Or OFF
The Active Braking feature has two settings and can be changed within the Uconnect System
Screen:
• On
• Off
Changing the Active Braking status to “Off” prevents the system from providing limited
autonomous braking, or additional brake support if the driver is not braking adequately in the
event of a potential frontal collision.
NOTE:
If FCW is set to “Off,” “FCW OFF” will be displayed in the EVIC/DID.
Refer to the Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details.
WARNING!
Forward Collision Warning (FCW) is not intended to avoid a collision on its own, nor can
FCW detect every type of potential collision. The driver has the responsibility to avoid a
collision by controlling the vehicle via braking and steering. Failure to follow this warning could
lead to serious injury or death.

WARNING!
• 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.
• Your vehicle could move and injure you and others if it is not in PARK. Check by trying to
move the gear selector out of PARK with the brake pedal released. Make sure the
transmission is in PARK before leaving the vehicle.
• It is dangerous to shift out of PARK or NEUTRAL if the engine speed is higher than idle
speed. If your foot is not firmly pressing the brake pedal, the vehicle could accelerate quickly
forward or in reverse. You could lose control of the vehicle and hit someone or something.
Only shift into gear when the engine is idling normally and your foot is firmly pressing the
brake pedal.
• Unintended movement of a vehicle could injure those in or near the vehicle. As with all
vehicles, you should never exit a vehicle while the engine is running. Before exiting a vehicle,
always apply the parking brake, shift the transmission into PARK, and turn the ignition OFF.
When the ignition is in the OFF position, the transmission is locked in PARK, securing the
vehicle against unwanted movement.
• When leaving the vehicle, always make sure the ignition is in the OFF mode, remove the key
fob from the vehicle, and lock the vehicle.
• Never leave children alone in a vehicle, or with access to an unlocked vehicle. Allowing
children to be in a vehicle unattended is dangerous for a number of reasons. A child or
others could be seriously or fatally injured. Children should be warned not to touch the
parking brake, brake pedal or the transmission gear selector.
• Do not leave the key fob in or near the vehicle (or in a location accessible to children), and
do not leave the ignition in the ACC or ON/RUN mode. A child could operate power
windows, other controls, or move the vehicle.

PADDLE SHIFT MODE — IF EQUIPPED
• When the transmission is in DRIVE or
SPORT mode, it will operate automatically,
shifting between the nine available gears.
• To activate Paddle Shift mode, simply tap
one of the steering wheel-mounted shift
paddles (+/-) while in DRIVE or SPORT
mode. Tapping (-) to enter Paddle Shift
mode will downshift the transmission to the
next lower gear, while using (+) to enter
Paddle Shift mode will retain the current
gear. When Paddle Shift is active, the current transmission gear is displayed in the
instrument cluster.
• In Paddle Shift mode, the transmission will
shift up or down when (+/-) is manually selected by the driver, unless an engine lugging or overspeed condition would result. It
will remain in the selected gear until another
upshift or downshift is chosen, except as
explained below.
Shift Paddles
1 — (-) Paddle Shift
2 — (+) Paddle Shift
• If Paddle Shift is engaged while in DRIVE mode, the transmission will automatically shift up
when maximum engine speed is reached. Lack of accelerator pedal activity will cause the
transmission to revert to automatic operation.
• If Paddle Shift is engaged while in SPORT mode, the transmission will remain in the selected
gear even when maximum engine speed is reached (except the transmission will upshift
automatically from 1st to 2nd gear at wide open throttle, if necessary). Otherwise, the
transmission will upshift only when commanded by the driver.
• In either DRIVE or SPORT mode, the transmission will automatically downshift as the vehicle
slows to a stop (to prevent engine lugging) and will display the current gear. Tapping the (+)
paddle (at a stop) will allow starting in second gear. After a stop, the driver should manually
upshift (+) the transmission as the vehicle accelerates.
• Holding the (-) paddle depressed will downshift the transmission to the lowest gear possible at
the current speed.
To disengage Paddle Shift mode, press and hold the (+) shift paddle until “D” or “S” is once again
indicated in the instrument cluster. You can shift in or out of Paddle Shift mode at any time
without taking your foot off the accelerator pedal.
WARNING!
Do not downshift for additional engine braking on a slippery surface. The drive wheels could
lose their grip and the vehicle could skid, causing a collision or personal injury.

WARNING!
• Drivers must be careful when backing up even when using ParkSense. Always check
carefully behind your vehicle, look behind you, and be sure to check for pedestrians,
animals, other vehicles, obstructions, and blind spots before backing up. You are responsible
for safety and must continue to pay attention to your surroundings. Failure to do so can
result in serious injury or death.
• Before using ParkSense, it is strongly recommended that the ball mount and hitch ball
assembly is disconnected from the vehicle when the vehicle is not used for towing. Failure
to do so can result in injury or damage to vehicles or obstacles because the hitch ball will be
much closer to the obstacle than the rear fascia when the loudspeaker sounds the continuous tone. Also, the sensors could detect the ball mount and hitch ball assembly, depending
on its size and shape, giving a false indication that an obstacle is behind the vehicle.
60
O P E R AT I N G YO U R V E H I C L E
CAUTION!
• ParkSense is only a parking aid and it is unable to recognize every obstacle, including small
obstacles. Parking curbs might be temporarily detected or not detected at all. Obstacles
located above or below the sensors will not be detected when they are in close proximity.
• The vehicle must be driven slowly when using ParkSense in order to be able to stop in time
when an obstacle is detected. It is recommended that the driver looks over his/her shoulder
when using ParkSense.
LANESENSE
The LaneSense system can be enabled and disabled with the LaneSense button

located on
• Push the LaneSense button to turn the system ON (LED turns off).
The LaneSense system is operational at speeds above 37 mph (60 km/h) and below 112 mph
(180 km/h). The LaneSense system uses a forward looking camera to detect lane markings and
measure vehicle position within the lane boundaries.
When both lane markings are detected and the driver unintentionally drifts out of the lane (no
turn signal applied), the LaneSense system provides a haptic warning in the form of torque
applied to the steering wheel to prompt the driver to remain within the lane boundaries. If the
driver continues to unintentionally drift out of the lane, the LaneSense system provides a visual
warning through the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) or Driver Information
Display (DID) to prompt the driver to remain within the lane boundaries.
The driver may manually override the haptic warning by applying torque into the steering wheel
at any time.
When only a single lane marking is detected and the driver unintentionally drifts across the lane
marking (no turn signal applied), the LaneSense system provides a visual warning through the
Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) or Driver Information Display (DID) to prompt
the driver to remain within the lane. When only a single lane marking is detected, a haptic
(torque) warning will not be provided.
Refer to your Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details.
NOTE:
When operating conditions have been met, the LaneSense system will monitor if the driver’s
hands are on the steering wheel and provides an audible warning to the driver when the driver’s
hands are not detected on the steering wheel. The system will cancel if the driver does not return
their hands to the wheel.

BLIND SPOT MONITORING
The Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) system uses two radar-based sensors, located inside the rear
bumper fascia, to detect Highway licensable vehicles (automobiles, trucks, motorcycles etc.) that
enter the blind spot zones from the rear/front/side of the vehicle.
The BSM detection zone covers approximately one lane width on both sides of the vehicle 12 ft
(3.8 m). The zone length starts at the outside rear view mirror and extends approximately 10 ft
(3 m) beyond the rear bumper of the vehicle. The BSM system monitors the detection zones on
both sides of the vehicle when the vehicle speed reaches approximately 6 mph (10 km/h) or
higher and will alert the driver of vehicles in these areas.
When the vehicle is started, the BSM warning
light will momentarily illuminate in both outside
rear view mirrors to let the driver know that the
system is operational. The BSM system sensors
operate when the vehicle is in any forward gear
or REVERSE and enters stand by mode when
the vehicle is in PARK.
Rear Detection Zones
The BSM warning light, located in the outside mirrors, will illuminate if a vehicle moves into a
blind spot zone.
The BSM system can also be configured to
sound an audible (chime) alert and mute the
radio to notify you of objects that have entered
the detection zones.

Rear Cross Path (RCP)
The Rear Cross Path (RCP) feature is intended to aid the driver when backing out of parking
spaces where the vision of oncoming vehicles may be blocked. Proceed slowly and cautiously out
of the parking space until the rear end of the vehicle is exposed. The RCP system will then have
a clear view of the cross traffic and if an oncoming vehicle is detected, will alert the driver. When
RCP is on and the vehicle is in REVERSE, the driver is alerted using both the visual and audible
alarms, including reducing the radio volume.
Refer to “Blind Spot Monitoring” in “Understanding The Features Of Your Vehicle” in the
Owner's Manual on the DVD for more information.
Modes Of Operation
Three selectable modes of operation are available in the Uconnect System. Refer to “Uconnect
Settings/Customer Programmable Features” in “Understanding Your Instrument Panel” in the
Owner’s Manual on the DVD for further information.
Blind Spot Alert Lights Only
When operating in Blind Spot Alert mode, the BSM system will provide a visual alert in the
appropriate side view mirror based on a detected object. However, when the system is operating
in Rear Cross Path mode, the system will respond with both visual and audible alerts when a
detected object is present. Whenever an audible alert is requested, the radio volume is reduced.
Blind Spot Alert Lights/Chime
When operating in Blind Spot Alert Lights/Chime mode, the BSM system will provide a visual
alert in the appropriate side view mirror based on a detected object. If the turn signal is then
activated, and it corresponds to an alert present on that side of the vehicle, an audible chime will
also be sounded. Whenever a turn signal and detected object are present on the same side at the
same time, both the visual and audio alerts will be issued. In addition to the audible alert the radio
(if on) volume will be reduced.
NOTE:
• Whenever an audible alert is requested by the BSM system, the radio volume is reduced.
• If the hazard flashers are on, the system will request the appropriate visual alert only.
When the system is in RCP, the system shall respond with both visual and audible alerts when a
detected object is present. Whenever an audible alert is requested, the radio volume is reduced.
Turn/hazard signal status is ignored; the RCP state always requests the chime.
Blind Spot Alert Off
When the BSM system is turned off there will be no visual or audible alerts from either the BSM
or RCP systems.
NOTE:
The BSM system will store the current operating mode when the vehicle is shut off. Each time the
vehicle is started the previously stored mode will be recalled and used.

WARNING!
• ALWAYS obey traffic laws and pay attention to the road. Some Uconnect Access services,
including 9-1-1 and Assist, will NOT work without an operable 1X (voice/data) or 3G (data)
network connection.
• ALWAYS drive safely with your hands on the steering wheel. You have full responsibility and
assume all risks related to the use of the Uconnect features and applications in this vehicle.
Only use Uconnect when it is safe to do so. Failure to do so may result in an accident
involving serious injury or death.
• Ignoring the rearview mirror light could mean you may not have 9-1-1 Call service if needed.
If the rearview mirror light is illuminated, have an authorized dealer service the 9-1-1 Call
system immediately.
• The Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) turns on the Air Bag Warning Light on the

conditions or location), do not wait for voice contact from a 9-1-1 operator. All occupants
should exit the vehicle immediately and move to a safe location.
• The 9-1-1 Call system is embedded into the vehicle’s electrical system. Do not add
aftermarket electrical equipment to the vehicle’s electrical system. This may prevent your
vehicle from sending a signal to initiate an emergency call. To avoid interference that can
cause the 9-1-1 Call system to fail, never add aftermarket equipment (e.g., two-way mobile
radio, CB radio, data recorder, etc.) to your vehicle’s electrical system or modify the
antennas on your vehicle.
• IF YOUR VEHICLE LOSES BATTERY POWER FOR ANY REASON (INCLUDING

WARNING AND INDICATOR LIGHTS
IMPORTANT: The warning/indicator lights switch on in the instrument panel together with a
dedicated message and/or acoustic signal when applicable. These indications are indicative and
precautionary and as such must not be considered as exhaustive and/or alternative to the
information contained in the Owner’s Manual, which you are advised to read carefully in all cases.
Always refer to the information in this chapter in the event of a failure indication.
All active telltales will display first, if applicable. The system check menu may appear different
based upon equipment options and current vehicle status.
This guide illustrates and describes the operation of warning and indicator telltales that are either
standard or optional based on the vehicle build. FCA 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.
INSTRUMENT CLUSTER WARNING LIGHTS
– Battery Charge Warning Light
This light illuminates when the battery is not charging properly. If the battery charge warning light
remains on, it means that the vehicle is experiencing a problem with the charging system.
We recommend you do not continue driving if the battery charge warning light is on. Have the
vehicle serviced immediately.
– Oil Pressure Warning Light
This light indicates low engine oil pressure. If the light turns on while driving, stop the vehicle and
shut off the engine as soon as possible. A chime will sound when this light turns on.
We recommend you do not operate the vehicle or engine damage will occur. Have the vehicle
serviced immediately.
– Anti-Lock Brake (ABS) Light
This light monitors the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS).
If the light is not on during startup, stays on, or turns on while driving we recommend you contact
the nearest authorized dealer and have the vehicle serviced immediately.
143
W H AT TO D O I N E M E R G E N C I E S
– Air Bag Warning Light
This light will turn on for four to eight seconds as a bulb check when the ignition switch is first
turned to the ON/RUN position. If the light is either not on during starting, stays on, or turns on
while driving, have the system inspected at an authorized dealer as soon as possible. Refer to
“Occupant Restraints” in “Things To Know Before Starting Your Vehicle” in your Owner’s Manual
on the DVD for further information.
NOTE:
The Air Bag System is designed to be maintenance free.
– 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) Light
Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked monthly when cold and inflated to
the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the vehicle placard or tire
inflation pressure label. (If your vehicle has tires of a different size than the size indicated on the
vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label, you should determine the proper tire inflation
pressure for those tires).
As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a tire pressure monitoring
system (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or more of your tires is
significantly under-inflated. Accordingly, when the low tire pressure telltale illuminates, you
should stop and check your tires as soon as possible and inflate them to the proper pressure.
Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to overheat and can lead to tire failure.
Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire tread life and may affect the vehicle’s
handling and stopping ability.
IF THE LIGHT STARTS FLASHING INDICATING A LOW TIRE PRESSURE, ADJUST
THE AIR PRESSURE IN THE LOW TIRE TO THE AIR PRESSURE SHOWN ON THE
VEHICLE PLACARD OR TIRE INFLATION PRESSURE LABEL LOCATED ON THE
DRIVER'S DOOR.
NOTE:
AFTER INFLATION, THE VEHICLE MAY NEED TO BE DRIVEN FOR 20 MINUTES
BEFORE THE FLASHING LIGHT WILL TURN OFF.
144
W H AT TO D O I N E M E R G E N C I E S
Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the driver’s
responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not reached the level to
trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale.
Your vehicle has also been equipped with a TPMS malfunction indicator to indicate when the
system is not operating properly. The TPMS malfunction indicator is combined with the low tire
pressure telltale.
When the system detects a malfunction, the telltale will flash for approximately one minute and
then remain continuously illuminated. This sequence will continue upon subsequent vehicle
start-ups as long as the malfunction exists. When the malfunction indicator is illuminated, the
system may not be able to detect or signal low tire pressure as intended. TPMS malfunctions may
occur for a variety of reasons, including the installation of replacement or alternate tires or wheels
on the vehicle that prevent the TPMS from functioning properly. Always check the TPMS
malfunction telltale after replacing one or more tires or wheels on your vehicle to ensure that the
replacement or alternate tires and wheels allow the TPMS to continue to function properly.
NOTE:
Tire pressures change by approximately 1 psi (7 kPa) per 12° F (7° C) of air temperature change.
Keep this in mind when checking tire pressure inside a garage, especially in the Winter. Example:
If garage temperature is 68°F (20°C), and the outside temperature is 32°F (0°C), then the cold
tire inflation pressure should be increased by 3 psi (21 kPa), which equals 1 psi (7 kPa) for every
12°F (7°C) for this outside temperature condition.
CAUTION!
The TPMS has been optimized for the original equipment tires and wheels. TPMS pressures
and warning have been established for the tire size equipped on your vehicle. Undesirable
system operation or sensor damage may result when using replacement equipment that is not
of the same size, type, and/or style. Aftermarket wheels can cause sensor damage. Do not use
tire sealant from a can, or balance beads if your vehicle is equipped with a TPMS, as damage
to the sensors may result.
– Engine Temperature Warning Light
This light warns of an overheated engine condition.
If the light turns on or flashes continuously while driving, safely pull over and stop the vehicle. If
the A/C system is on, turn it off. Also, shift the transmission into NEUTRAL and idle the vehicle.
If the temperature reading does not return to normal, turn the engine off immediately.
We recommend that you do not operate the vehicle or engine damage will occur. Have the
vehicle serviced immediately.
WARNING!
A hot engine cooling system is dangerous. You or others could be badly burned by steam or
boiling coolant.
145
W H AT TO D O I N E M E R G E N C I E S
– Transmission Temperature Warning Light
This light indicates that there is excessive transmission fluid temperature that might occur with
severe usage such as trailer towing. If this light turns on, stop the vehicle and run the engine at idle,
with the transmission in NEUTRAL, until the light turns off. Once the light turns off, you may
continue to drive normally.
CAUTION!
Continuous driving with the Transmission Temperature Warning Light illuminated will eventually cause severe transmission damage or transmission failure.
WARNING!
If you continue operating the vehicle when the Transmission Temperature Warning Light is
illuminated you could cause the fluid to boil over, come in contact with hot engine or exhaust
components and cause a fire.
– Seat Belt Reminder Light
When the ignition switch is first turned to ON/RUN, this light will turn on if the driver’s seat belt
is unbuckled, and a chime will sound. When driving, if the driver’s seat belt remains unbuckled, the
Seat Belt Reminder Light will illuminate, and the chime will sound.
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.
– 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 brake system master cylinder 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. The light will remain on until the cause is corrected.
146
W H AT TO D O I N E M E R G E N C I E S
Vehicles equipped with the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) are also equipped with Electronic
Brake Force Distribution (EBD). In the event of an EBD failure, the Brake Warning Light will turn
on along with the ABS Light. Immediate repair to the ABS system is required.
Operation of the Brake Warning Light can be checked by turning the ignition switch from the
OFF position to the ON/RUN position. The light should illuminate for approximately two
seconds. The light should then turn off unless the parking brake is applied or a brake fault is
detected. If the light does not illuminate, have the light inspected by an authorized dealer.
The light also will turn on when the parking brake is applied with the ignition switch in the
ON/RUN position.
NOTE:
This light shows only that the parking brake is applied. It does not show the degree of brake
application.
WARNING!
Driving a vehicle with the red brake light on is dangerous. Part of the brake system may have
failed. It will take longer to stop the vehicle. You could have a collision. Have the vehicle
checked immediately.
– Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL)
Certain conditions, such as a loose or missing gas cap, poor fuel quality, etc., may illuminate the
MIL after engine start. The vehicle should be serviced if the light stays on through several typical
driving cycles. In most situations, the vehicle will drive normally and not require towing.
If the MIL flashes when the engine is running, serious conditions may exist that could lead to
immediate loss of power or severe catalytic converter damage. We recommend you do not
operate the vehicle. Have the vehicle serviced immediately.
– Electronic Stability Control (ESC) Activation/Malfunction Indicator Light
If the “ESC Activation/Malfunction Indicator Light” comes on continuously with the engine
running, a malfunction has been detected in the ESC system. If this light remains on after several
ignition cycles, and the vehicle has been driven several miles (kilometers) at speeds greater than
30 mph (48 km/h), we recommend you do not operate the vehicle. Have the vehicle serviced
immediately.
The “ESC Activation/Malfunction Indicator Light” starts to flash as soon as the tires lose traction
and the ESC system becomes active. If the light begins to flash during acceleration, ease up on
the accelerator and apply as little throttle as possible. Be sure to adapt your speed and driving to
the prevailing road conditions. The light also flashes when Traction Control System (TCS) is
active. To improve the vehicle's traction when starting off in deep snow, sand or gravel, it may be
desirable to switch the ESC system to Partial Off mode by momentarily pushing the ESC Off
switch.

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, place the transmission in NEUTRAL, but do not increase the
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
“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 the “H,” turn the engine off
immediately and call for service.
TIRE SERVICE KIT — IF EQUIPPED
This kit will provide a temporary tire seal, allowing you to drive your vehicle up to 100 miles

dangerous if done improperly so please follow the procedures in this section carefully.
NOTE:
When using a portable battery booster pack follow the manufacturer’s operating instructions and
precautions.
WARNING!
Do not attempt jump-starting if the battery is frozen. It could rupture or explode and cause
personal injury.
CAUTION!
Do not use a portable battery booster pack or any other booster source with a system voltage
greater than 12 Volts or damage to the battery, starter motor, alternator or electrical system
may occur.
167
W H AT TO D O I N E M E R G E N C I E S
Preparations For Jump-Start
The battery in your vehicle is located in the front of the engine compartment, behind the left
headlight assembly.
Battery Posts
1 — Positive Battery Post
2 — Negative Battery Post
WARNING!
• Take care to avoid the radiator cooling fan whenever the hood is raised. It can start anytime
the ignition switch is ON. You can be injured by moving fan blades.
• Remove any metal jewelry such as rings, watch bands and bracelets that could make an
inadvertent electrical contact. You could be seriously injured.
• Batteries contain sulfuric acid that can burn your skin or eyes and generate hydrogen gas
which is flammable and explosive. Keep open flames or sparks away from the battery.
1. Set the parking brake, shift the automatic transmission into PARK and turn the ignition to
LOCK.
2. Turn off the heater, radio, and all unnecessary electrical accessories.
3. If using another vehicle to jump-start the battery, park the vehicle within the jumper cables
reach, set the parking brake and make sure the ignition is OFF.
WARNING!
Do not allow vehicles to touch each other as this could establish a ground connection and
personal injury could result.

W H AT TO D O I N E M E R G E N C I E S
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 discharged
vehicle.
2. Connect the opposite end of the positive (+) jumper cable to the positive (+) post of the
booster battery.
3. Connect the negative (-) end of the jumper cable to the negative (-) post of the booster
battery.
4. Connect the opposite end of the negative (-) jumper cable to 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
resulting electrical spark could cause the battery to explode and could result in personal injury.
Only use the specific ground point, do not use any other exposed metal parts.
5. Start the engine in the vehicle that has the booster battery, let the engine idle a few minutes,
and then start the engine in the vehicle with the discharged battery.
6. Once the engine is started, remove the jumper cables in the reverse sequence:
Disconnecting The Jumper Cables
1. Disconnect the negative (-) end of the jumper cable from the engine ground of the vehicle
with the discharged battery.
2. Disconnect the opposite end of the negative (-) jumper cable from the negative (-) post of
the booster battery.
3. Disconnect the positive (+) end of the jumper cable from the positive (+) post of the booster
battery.
4. Disconnect the opposite end of the positive (+) jumper cable from the positive (+) post of the
vehicle with the discharged battery.
169
W H AT TO D O I N E M E R G E N C I E S
If frequent jump-starting is required to start your vehicle you should have the battery and
charging system inspected at your authorized dealer.
CAUTION!
Accessories plugged into the vehicle power outlets draw power from the vehicle’s battery,
even when not in use (i.e., cellular devices, etc.). Eventually, if plugged in long enough without
engine operation, the vehicle’s battery will discharge sufficiently to degrade battery life and/or
prevent the engine from starting.
FREEING A STUCK VEHICLE
If your vehicle becomes stuck in mud, sand or snow, it can often be moved by a rocking motion.
Turn your steering wheel right and left to clear the area around the front wheels. Then shift back
and forth between REVERSE and DRIVE. Using minimal accelerator pedal pressure to maintain
the rocking motion, without spinning the wheels, is most effective.
NOTE:
• Shifts between DRIVE and REVERSE can only be achieved at wheel speeds of 5 mph
(8 km/h) or less. Whenever the transmission remains in NEUTRAL for more than 2 seconds,
you must press the brake pedal to engage DRIVE or REVERSE.
• To improve the vehicle's traction when starting off in deep snow, sand or gravel, it may be
desirable to switch the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) to “Partial Off” mode by momenswitch. For further information on ESC, refer to the Owner's
tarily pushing the ESC Off
Manual on the DVD.
WARNING!
Fast spinning tires can be dangerous. Forces generated by excessive wheel speeds may cause
tire damage or failure. A tire could explode and injure someone. Do not spin your vehicle's
wheels faster than 30 mph (48 km/h) when you are stuck. Do not let anyone near a spinning
wheel, no matter what the speed.
CAUTION!
• When “rocking” a stuck vehicle by shifting between REVERSE and DRIVE, do not spin the
wheels faster than 15 mph (24 km/h), or drivetrain damage may result.
• Revving the engine or spinning the wheels too fast may lead to transmission overheating
and failure. It can also damage the tires. Do not spin the wheels above 30 mph (48 km/h)
while in gear (no transmission shifting occurring).

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 applicable supplement on
the DVD for further details.
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 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 “Oil Change Reset” in
“Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)” or "Driver Information Display (DID)” in
“Understanding Your Instrument Panel” in your Owner’s Manual on the DVD for further
information.
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.

Hook
1 — Fuel Filler Door Actuator
2 — Fuel Filler Cap Tether Hook
NOTE:
In certain cold conditions, ice may prevent the fuel door from opening. If this occurs, lightly push
on the fuel door around the entire perimeter to break the ice buildup and re-open the door.
4. When the fuel nozzle “clicks” or shuts off, the fuel tank is full.
5. After you have stopped pumping fuel, remove the fuel filler nozzle and replace the fuel filler
cap.
192
M A I N TA I N I N G YO U R V E H I C L E
6. Tighten the gas cap about one-quarter turn until you hear one click. This is an indication that
the cap is properly tightened.
7. To close the fuel filler door, push the center-rear edge of the fuel filler door and then release.
The fuel door will close.
Push To Close
WARNING!
• Never have any smoking materials lit in or near the vehicle when the gas cap is removed or
the tank is being filled.
• Never add fuel when the engine is running. This is in violation of most state and federal fire
regulations and may cause the malfunction indicator light 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 emission control system could result from using an improper
fuel filler cap. A poorly fitting cap could let impurities into the fuel system. Also, a poorly
fitting aftermarket cap can cause the “Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL)” to illuminate, due
to fuel vapors escaping from the system.
• A poorly fitting fuel filler cap may cause the MIL to turn on.
• To avoid fuel spillage and overfilling, do not “top off” the fuel tank after filling.
NOTE:
If the gas cap is not tighten properly, the MIL will come on. Be sure the gas cap is tightened every
time the vehicle is refueled.

TIRES — GENERAL INFORMATION
Tire Pressures
Check the inflation pressure of each tire, including the spare tire (if equipped), at least monthly
and inflate to the recommended pressure for your vehicle.
The tire pressures recommended for your vehicle are found on the “Tire and Loading Information” label located on the driver’s side door opening or B-Pillar.
NOTE:
Refer to the Owner's Manual on the DVD or
the Tire Information Supplement located in
your Owner’s Information kit for more information regarding tire warnings and instructions.
Tire And Loading Information Location (Example)
WARNING!
• Overloading of your tires is dangerous. Overloading can cause tire failure, affect vehicle
handling, and increase your stopping distance. Use tires of the recommended load capacity
for your vehicle. Never overload them.
• Improperly inflated tires are dangerous and can cause collisions. Under-inflation 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.
194
M A I N TA I N I N G YO U R V E H I C L E
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.
195
M A I N TA I N I N G YO U R V E H I C L E
Full Size Spare — If Equipped
The full size spare is for temporary emergency use only. This tire may look like the originally
equipped tire on the front or rear axle of your vehicle, but it is not. This spare tire may have limited
tread life. When the tread is worn to the tread wear indicators, the temporary use full size spare
tire needs to be replaced. Since it is not the same as your original equipment tire, replace (or
repair) the original equipment tire and reinstall on the vehicle at the first opportunity.
Limited Use Spare — If Equipped
The limited use spare tire is for temporary emergency use only. This tire is identified by a label
located on the limited use spare wheel. This label contains the driving limitations for this spare.
This tire may look like the original equipped tire on the front or rear axle of your vehicle, but it is
not. Installation of this limited use spare tire affects vehicle handling. Since it is not the same as
your original equipment tire, replace (or repair) the original equipment tire and reinstall on the
vehicle at the first opportunity.
WARNING!
Limited use spares are for emergency use only. Installation of this limited use spare tire affects
vehicle handling. With this tire, do not drive more than the speed listed on the limit use spare
wheel. Keep inflated to the cold tire inflation pressures listed on your Tire and Loading
Information Placard located on the driver’s side B-Pillar or the rear edge of the driver’s side
door. Replace (or repair) the original equipment tire at the first opportunity and reinstall it on
your vehicle. Failure to do so could result in loss of vehicle control.
Wheel And Wheel Trim Care
All wheels and wheel trim, especially aluminum and chrome plated wheels, should be cleaned
regularly 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.
196
M A I N TA I N I N G YO U R V E H I C L E
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 or 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.

REPORTING SAFETY DEFECTS IN THE UNITED
STATES
If you believe that your vehicle has a defect that could cause a collision or cause injury or death,
you should immediately inform the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in
addition to notifying the manufacturer.
If NHTSA receives similar complaints, it may open an investigation, and if it finds that a safety
defect exists in a group of vehicles, it may order a recall and remedy campaign. However, NHTSA
cannot become involved in individual problems between you, your authorized dealer and the
manufacturer.
To contact NHTSA, you may either call the Auto Safety Hotline toll free at 1-888-327-4236
(TTY: 1-800-424-9153), or go to http://www.safercar.gov; or write to: Administrator, NHTSA,
1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., West Building, Washington, D.C. 20590. You can also obtain
other information about motor vehicle safety from http://www.safercar.gov.
In Canada
If you believe that your vehicle has a safety defect, you should contact the Customer Service
Department immediately. Canadian customers who wish to report a safety defect to the
Canadian government should contact Transport Canada, Motor Vehicle Defect Investigations
and Recalls at 1-800-333-0510 or go to http://www.tc.gc.ca/roadsafety/.

IF YOU ARE THE FIRST REGISTERED RETAIL OWNER OF YOUR VEHICLE,
YOU MAY OBTAIN A COMPLIMENTARY PRINTED COPY OF THE OWNER’S
MANUAL, NAVIGATION/UCONNECT MANUALS OR WARRANTY BOOKLET
BY CALLING 1-800-247-9753 (U.S.) OR 1-800-387-1143 (CANADA) OR BY
CONTACTING YOUR DEALER.
The driver’s primary responsibility is the safe operation of the vehicle. Driving while distracted can
result in loss of vehicle control, resulting in a collision and personal injury. FCA US LLC strongly
recommends that the driver use extreme caution when using any device or feature that may take
their attention off the road. Use of any electrical devices, such as cellular telephones, computers,
portable radios, vehicle navigation or other devices, by the driver while the vehicle is moving is
dangerous and could lead to a serious collision. Texting while driving is also dangerous and should
never be done while the vehicle is moving. If you find yourself unable to devote your full attention
to vehicle operation, pull off the road to a safe location and stop your vehicle. Some states or
provinces prohibit the use of cellular telephones or texting while driving. It is always the driver’s
responsibility to comply with all local laws.
This guide has been prepared to help you get quickly acquainted with your new Chrysler
Brand Vehicle and to provide a convenient reference source for common questions.
However, it is not a substitute for your Owner’s Manual. For complete operational
instructions, maintenance procedures and important safety messages, please consult
your Owner’s Manual, Navigation/Uconnect Manuals and other Warning Labels in your
vehicle. Not all features shown in this guide may apply to your vehicle. For additional
information on accessories to help personalize your vehicle, visit mopar.com (U.S.),
mopar.ca (Canada) or your local Chrysler brand dealer.
D R I V I N G A N D A L C O H O L : Drunken driving is one of the most frequent
causes of collisions. Your driving ability can be seriously impaired with blood alcohol levels
far below the legal minimum. If you are drinking, don’t drive. Ride with a designated
non-drinking driver, call a cab, a friend, or use public transportation.
WARNING!
I M P O R T A N T: This User Guide is intended to familiarize you with the important
features of your vehicle. The DVD enclosed contains your Owner’s Manual, Navigation/
Uconnect Manuals, Warranty Booklets, Tire Warranty and Roadside Assistance
(new vehicles purchased in the U.S.) or Roadside Assistance (new vehicles purchased
in Canada) in electronic format. We hope you find it useful. Replacement DVD kits may
be purchased by visiting www.techauthority.com.
Driving after drinking can lead to a collision. Your perceptions are less sharp, your
reflexes are slower, and your judgment is impaired when you have been drinking.
Never drink and then drive.
