Drunken driving is one of the most frequent causes of accidents. Your driving ability
The driver’s primary responsibility is the safe operation of the vehicle. Driving while
distracted can result in loss of vehicle control, resulting in a collision and personal
injury. FCA US LLC strongly recommends that the driver use extreme caution when using
any device or feature that may take their attention off the road. Use of any electrical
devices such as cell phones, computers, portable radios, vehicle navigation or other
devices by the driver while the vehicle is moving is dangerous and could lead to a
serious collision. Texting while driving is also dangerous and should never be done while
the vehicle is moving. If you find yourself unable to devote your full attention to vehicle
operation, pull off the road to a safe location and stop your vehicle. Some States or
Provinces prohibit the use of cellular telephones or texting while driving. It is always
the driver’s responsibility to comply with all local laws.

can be seriously impaired with blood alcohol levels far below the legal minimum. If
you are drinking, don’t drive. Ride with a designated non-drinking driver, call a cab,
a friend, or use public transportation.
WARNING!
Driving after drinking can lead to an accident. Your perceptions are less sharp,
your reflexes are slower, and your judgment is impaired when you have been drinking.
Never drink and then drive.

WELCOME FROM FCA US LLC
Congratulations on selecting your new FCA US LLC 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 LLC vehicle has characteristics to enhance the driver's control under
some driving conditions. These are to assist the driver and are never a substitute for
attentive driving. They can never take the driver's place. Always drive carefully.
Your new vehicle has many features for the comfort and convenience of you and your
passengers. Some of these should not be used when driving because they take your eyes
from the road or your attention from driving. Never text while driving or take your eyes more
than momentarily off the road.
This guide illustrates and describes the operation of features and equipment that are
either standard or optional on this vehicle. This guide may also include a description of
features and equipment that are no longer available or were not ordered on this vehicle.
Please disregard any features and equipment described in this guide that are not available
on this vehicle. FCA US LLC reserves the right to make changes in design and specifications and/or make additions to or improvements to its products without imposing any
obligation upon itself to install them on products previously manufactured.
This User Guide has been prepared to help you quickly become acquainted with the
important features of your vehicle. It contains most things you will need to operate and
maintain the vehicle, including emergency information.
The DVD includes a computer application containing detailed owner's information which
can be viewed on a personal computer or MAC computer. The multimedia DVD also
includes videos which can be played on any standard DVD player (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 LLC is committed to protecting our environment and natural resources. By
converting from paper to electronic delivery for the majority of the user information for
your vehicle, together we greatly reduce the demand for tree-based products and lessen
the stress on our environment.

WARNING!
• Pedals that cannot move freely can cause loss of vehicle control and increase the risk
of serious personal injury.
• Always make sure that objects cannot fall into the driver foot well while the vehicle
is moving. Objects can become trapped under the brake pedal and accelerator pedal
causing a loss of vehicle control.
• Failure to properly follow floor mat installation or mounting can cause interference
with the brake pedal and accelerator pedal operation causing loss of control of the
vehicle.
• Never leave children alone in a vehicle, or with access to an unlocked vehicle.
Allowing children to be in a vehicle unattended is dangerous for a number of reasons.
A child or others could be seriously or fatally injured. Children should be warned not
to touch the parking brake, brake pedal or the shift lever.
• 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.

10
GETTING STARTED
SEAT BELT
• Be sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and using a seat belt properly.
• Position the lap belt across your thighs, below your abdomen. To remove slack in the
lap portion, pull up a bit on the shoulder belt. To loosen the lap belt if it is too tight, tilt
the latch plate and pull on the lap belt. A snug belt reduces the risk of sliding under the
belt in a collision.
• Position the shoulder belt on your chest so that it is comfortable and not resting on your
neck. The retractor will withdraw any slack in the belt.
• A shoulder belt placed behind you will not protect you from injury during a collision.
You are more likely to hit your head in a collision if you do not wear your shoulder belt.
The lap and shoulder belt are meant to be used together.
• A belt that is too loose will not protect you properly. In a sudden stop you could move
too far forward, increasing the possibility of injury. Wear your seat belt snugly.
• A frayed or torn belt could rip apart in a collision and leave you with no protection.
Inspect the belt system periodically, checking for cuts, frays, or loose parts. Damaged
parts must be replaced immediately. Do not disassemble or modify the system. Seat
belt assemblies must be replaced after a collision if they have been damaged (bent
retractor, torn webbing, etc.).
• The seat belts for both front seating positions are equipped with pretensioning devices
that are designed to remove slack from the seat belt in the event of a collision.
• A deployed pretensioner or a deployed air bag must be replaced immediately.
NOTE:
When the ignition switch is first turned to the ON/RUN position, this light will turn on for
four to eight seconds as a bulb check. During the bulb check, if the driver's seat belt is
unbuckled, a chime will sound. After the bulb check or when driving, if the driver or front
passenger seat belt remains unbuckled, the Seat Belt Indicator Light will flash or remain
on continuously.
WARNING!
In a collision, you and your passengers can suffer much greater injuries if you are not
buckled up properly. You can strike the interior of your vehicle or other passengers, or
you can be thrown out of the vehicle. Always be sure you and others in your vehicle are
buckled up properly.
Seat Belt Guide Loop
• The seat belt should be routed through the seat belt guide loop located on the outboard
side of the seat while it is in use.
• To utilize the seat belt guide loop, unsnap the guide loop retainer by pulling up on the
head of the retainer and pulling the seat belt guide loop outward.

SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM (SRS) — AIR BAGS
• This vehicle has Advanced Front Air Bags for both the driver and right front passenger
as a supplement to the seat belt restraint system. The Advanced Front Air Bags will not
deploy in every type of collision.
• Advanced Front Air Bags are designed to provide additional protection by supplementing the seat belts in certain frontal collisions depending on several factors, including
the severity and type of collision. Advanced Front Air Bags are not expected to reduce
the risk of injury in rear, side, or rollover collisions.
is not on during starting, stays on, or turns on while
• If the Air Bag Warning Light
driving, have the vehicle serviced by an authorized service center immediately.
• This vehicle has an Occupant Classification System (“OCS”) in the right front
passenger seat. The OCS is designed to deactivate the front passenger Advanced Front
Air Bag for an unoccupied seat and for occupants classified in a category other than a
properly seated adult. This could be a child, teenager, or even an adult.
• The Passenger Air Bag Disable (“PAD”) Indicator Light (an amber light located in the
center of the instrument panel) tells the driver and front passenger when the passenger
Advanced Front Air Bag is deactivated. The PAD Indicator light illuminates the words
“PASSENGER AIR BAG OFF” to show that the Passenger Advanced Front Air Bag will
not inflate during a collision.
• Refer to the Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details regarding the Supplemental
Restraint System (SRS).
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.
• Do not drive your vehicle after the air bags have deployed. If you are involved in
another collision, the air bags will not be in place to protect you.
• After any collision, the vehicle should be taken to an authorized dealer immediately.
12
GETTING STARTED
CHILD RESTRAINTS
Children 12 years or younger should ride properly buckled up in a rear seat, if available.
According to crash statistics, children are safer when properly restrained in the rear seats
rather than in the front.
Every state in the United States and all Canadian provinces require that small children
ride in proper restraint systems. This is the law, and you can be prosecuted for ignoring it.
NOTE:
• For additional information, refer to www.seatcheck.org or call 1–866–SEATCHECK.
• Canadian residents should refer to Transport Canada’s website for additional information: http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/roadsafety/safedrivers-childsafety-index-53.htm
There are tether strap anchorages behind each rear seating position. Access ports to the
tether anchors are located in the panel between the rear seat and the rear window. The
tether anchors are underneath access covers in the carpet covering the back of the seat
where you see the tether anchorage symbol.
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.
• 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.
• Rearward-facing child seats must never be used in the front seat of a vehicle with a
front passenger air bag. An air bag deployment could cause severe injury or death to
infants in this position.
• 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).
13
G ET T I NG S TARTED
Installing The Child Restraints Using The Vehicle Seat Belts
• The front passenger seating position is 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.
• There is a tether strap anchor located behind the child tether access cover behind the
passenger seat.
• 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.
14
GETTING STARTED
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 The Vehicle Seat Belt:
• When installing a forward-facing child restraint, always secure the top tether strap, up
to the tether anchor weight limit, when the child restraint is installed with the vehicle
seat belt.
• There is a tether strap anchor located behind the child tether access cover behind the
passenger seat. To attach a child restraint tether strap to the anchor:
1. Move the seat forward.
2. Move the seatback to its full forward position.
3. Remove the child tether access cover by prying either side with a screwdriver or similar
tool, as shown.
NOTE:
While the child tether is in use, keep the access cover in a safe place so that it can be
replaced after use of the child tether.
4. Pass the child restraint tether hook through either opening in the seatback underneath
the head restraint.
5. Attach the tether hook to the anchor loop.
6. Move the seat to its farthest rearward position. Apply body pressure to the seat to be
sure the seat adjusters have latched.
7. Return the seatback to an upright position.
8. Remove slack from the tether strap according to the child restraint manufacturer’s
directions.

infants in this position.
• Only use a rearward-facing child restraint in a vehicle with a rear seat.
• Improper installation of a child restraint to the LATCH anchorages can lead to failure
of an infant or child restraint. The child could be severely injured or killed. Follow the

• 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.

SRT ENGINE BREAK-IN RECOMMENDATIONS
• A long break-in period is not required for the drivetrain (engine, transmission, and rear
axle) in your new vehicle.
• Drive moderately during the first 500 miles (800 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. However, wide-open throttle acceleration in low gear
can be detrimental and should be avoided.
• The engine oil is a high performance synthetic lubricant, the transmission fluid, and
axle lubricant installed at the factory is high-quality and energy-conserving. Oil, fluid,
and lubricant changes should be consistent with anticipated climate and conditions
under which vehicle operations will occur. For the recommended viscosity and quality
grades, refer to “Maintaining Your Vehicle”.
NOTE:
A new engine may consume some oil during its first few thousand miles (kilometers) of
operation. This should be considered a normal part of the break-in and not interpreted as
an indication of difficulty.
CAUTION!
Never use Non-Detergent Oil or Straight Mineral Oil in the engine or damage may
result.

ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL
• The ESC corrects for oversteering and understeering the vehicle by applying the brake
of the appropriate wheel. Engine power may also be reduced to assist in counteracting
the condition of oversteer or understeer and help the vehicle maintain the desired path.
• In full on mode ESC utilizes sensors in the vehicle to determine the path that the driver
intends to steer the vehicle and compares it to the actual path of the vehicle. When the
actual path does not match the intended path, the ESC applies the brake of the
appropriate wheel to assist in counteracting the condition of oversteer or understeer.
Electronic Stability Control (ESC) Operating Modes
• The ESC system may have five available operating modes:
ESC On
• This is the normal operating mode for the ESC system. Whenever the vehicle is
started, the ESC system will be in this mode. The ESC On mode should be used for
most driving situations. The ESC should only be turned OFF for specific reasons as
noted in the following paragraphs.
ESC Full Off
• The ESC Off mode is intended for off-highway or off-road use only and should not be
used on any public roadways. In this mode, all TCS and ESC stability features are
turned OFF. To enter the “Full Off” mode, press and hold the “ESC Off” switch for
five seconds while the vehicle is stopped with the engine running. After five seconds,
a chime will sound, the “ESC Activation/Malfunction Indicator Light” will illuminate,

Rain Mode
• Rain mode offers increased traction control and stability control for low traction
conditions such as wet roads, dry roads during cold temperatures, or when the driver
wants enhanced stability due to lack of familiarity or experience with the vehicle’s
response. To enter the “Rain Mode” mode, press the “ESC” switch three times. The
“ESC RAIN” light will illuminate, and the "ESC RAIN" message will display in the
vehicle cluster (left of the odometer).
NOTE:
Some models may not offer “Sport” or “Track” Mode.
WARNING!
The Electronic Stability Control System (ESC) cannot prevent the natural laws of physics
from acting on the vehicle, nor can it increase the traction afforded by prevailing road
conditions. ESC cannot prevent all accidents, including those resulting from excessive
speed in turns, driving on very slippery surfaces, or hydroplaning. ESC also cannot prevent
accidents resulting from loss of vehicle control due to inappropriate driver input for the
conditions. Only a safe, attentive, and skillful driver can prevent accidents. The capabilities
of an ESC equipped vehicle must never be exploited in a reckless or dangerous manner
which could jeopardize the user’s safety or the safety of others.

Monitoring System (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or
more of your tires is significantly under-inflated. Accordingly, when the low tire
pressure telltale illuminates, you should stop and check your tires as soon as possible,
and inflate them to the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire
causes the tire to overheat and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces fuel
efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the vehicle’s handling and stopping ability.
• IF THE LIGHT STARTS FLASHING INDICATING A LOW TIRE PRESSURE, ADJUST THE AIR
PRESSURE IN THE LOW TIRE TO THE AIR PRESSURE SHOWN ON THE VEHICLE PLACARD
OR TIRE INFLATION PRESSURE LABEL LOCATED ON THE DRIVER'S DOOR.
NOTE:
AFTER INFLATION, THE VEHICLE MAY NEED TO BE DRIVEN FOR 20 MINUTES
BEFORE THE FLASHING LIGHT WILL TURN OFF.
• Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the
driver’s responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not
reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale.
95
WHAT T O D O IN EMERGENCIES
• Your vehicle has also been equipped with a TPMS malfunction indicator to indicate
when the system is not operating properly. The TPMS malfunction indicator is
combined with the low tire pressure telltale. When the system detects a malfunction,
the telltale will flash for approximately one minute and then remain continuously
illuminated. This sequence will continue each time the vehicle is restarted as long as
the malfunction exists.
• 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

• Please have your vehicle serviced immediately.
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 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) OFF Indicator Light
• This light indicates the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) is off.
- Charging System Light
• This light shows the status of the electrical charging system. If the charging system
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 charging system 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

elevated/rough idle or engine stall and your vehicle may require towing.
- Air Bag Warning Light
• If the light is not on during starting, stays on, or turns on while driving, have the vehicle
serviced by an authorized dealer immediately.
IF YOUR ENGINE OVERHEATS
• In any of the following situations, you can reduce the potential for overheating by taking
the appropriate action.
• On the highways — slow down.
• In city traffic — while stopped, shift the transmission to NEUTRAL, but do not increase
engine idle speed.
NOTE:
There are steps that you can take to slow down an impending overheat condition:
• If your air conditioner (A/C) is on, turn it off. The A/C system adds heat to the engine
cooling system and turning the A/C off can help remove this heat.
• You can also turn the temperature control to maximum heat, the mode control to floor
and the blower control to high. This allows the heater core to act as a supplement to the
radiator and aids in removing heat from the engine cooling system.
CAUTION!
Driving with a hot cooling system could damage your vehicle. If the temperature gauge
reads HOT (H), pull over and stop the vehicle. Idle the vehicle with the air conditioner
turned off until the pointer drops back into the normal range. If the pointer remains on
HOT (H), and you hear continuous chimes, turn the engine off immediately, and call for
service.
WARNING!
You or others can be badly burned by hot engine coolant (antifreeze) or steam from your
radiator. If you see or hear steam coming from under the hood, do not open the hood
until the radiator has had time to cool. Never try to open a cooling system pressure cap
when the radiator or coolant bottle is hot.

WHAT T O D O IN EMERGENCIES
CAUTION!
• Do not use a portable battery booster pack or any other booster source with a system
voltage greater than 12 Volts or damage to the battery, starter motor, alternator or
electrical system may occur.
• Failure to follow these procedures could result in damage to the charging system of
the booster vehicle or the discharged vehicle.
• Accessories that can be plugged into the vehicle power outlets draw power from the
vehicle’s battery, even when not in use (i.e., cellular phones, etc.). Eventually, if
plugged in long enough, the vehicle’s battery discharges sufficiently to degrade
battery life and/or prevent the engine from starting.
WARNING!
• When temperatures are below the freezing point, electrolyte in a discharged battery
may freeze. Do not attempt jump-starting because the battery could rupture or
explode and cause personal injury. Battery temperature must be brought above
freezing point before attempting a jump-start.
• Take care to avoid the radiator cooling fan whenever the hood is raised. It can start
anytime the ignition switch is on. You can be injured by moving fan blades.
• Remove any metal jewelry, such as watch bands or bracelets, that might make an
inadvertent electrical contact. You could be severely injured.
• Batteries contain sulfuric acid that can burn your skin or eyes and generate hydrogen
gas which is flammable and explosive. Keep open flames or sparks away from the
battery.
• Do not allow vehicles to touch each other as this could establish a ground connection
and personal injury could result.
• Failure to follow this procedure could result in personal injury or property damage
due to battery explosion.
• Do not connect the cable to the negative post (-) of the discharged battery. The
resulting electrical spark could cause the battery to explode and could result in
personal injury.

TOWING A DISABLED VEHICLE
Do not tow with sling-type equipment. Only use flatbed equipment. Always comply with
applicable state or local towing ordinances.
CAUTION!
• Failure to follow these towing methods can cause severe transmission damage. Such
damage is not covered by the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
• If the vehicle being towed requires steering, the ignition switch must be in the
ON/RUN position.
• Do not attempt to use sling-type equipment when towing. When securing the vehicle
to a flatbed truck, do not attach to front or rear suspension components. Damage to
your vehicle may result from improper towing.
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 2nd gear and REVERSE. Using minimal accelerator
pedal pressure to maintain the rocking motion, without spinning the wheels, is most
effective.
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.

EVENT DATA RECORDER (EDR)
• This vehicle is equipped with an Event Data Recorder (EDR). The main purpose of an
EDR is to record, in certain crash or near crash-like situations, such as an air bag
deployment or hitting a road obstacle, data that will assist in understanding how a
vehicle’s systems performed. The EDR is designed to record data related to vehicle
dynamics and safety systems for a short period of time, typically 30 seconds or less.
The EDR in this vehicle is designed to record such data as:
• How various systems in your vehicle were operating.
• Whether or not the driver and passenger safety belts were buckled/fastened.
• How far (if at all) the driver was depressing the accelerator and/or brake pedal.
• How fast the vehicle was traveling.
• These data can help provide a better understanding of the circumstances in which
crashes and injuries occur.
NOTE:
EDR data are recorded by your vehicle only if a non-trivial crash situation occurs; no data
are recorded by the EDR under normal driving conditions and no personal data (e.g. name,
gender, age, and crash location) are recorded. However, other parties, such as law
enforcement, could combine the EDR data with the type of personally identifying data
routinely acquired during a crash investigation.
• To read data recorded by an EDR, special equipment is required, and access to the
vehicle or the EDR is needed. In addition to the vehicle manufacturer, other parties
such as law enforcement, that have the special equipment, can read the information if
they have access to the vehicle or the EDR.

SUMMER/THREE-SEASON TIRES
• This vehicle may be equipped with wheels and tires to enhance traction in both wet and
dry conditions.
• Summer tires are not intended to be driven in snow or on ice.
• Summer tires have significantly reduced grip in temperatures below 50°F (10°C)
• Use summer tires only in sets of four.
NOTE:
Summer tires will not contain the all season designation or mountain/snowflake symbol on
the sidewall of the tire.
WARNING!
Do not use summer tires in snow/ice conditions. You could lose control, resulting in
severe injury or death. Driving too fast for conditions also creates the possibility of loss
of vehicle control.
117
M AI NTA INI NG YOUR VEHICLE
TIRE PRESSURES
• Check the inflation pressure of each tire, including the spare tire, at least monthly and
inflate to the recommended pressure for your vehicle.
• The tire pressures recommended for your vehicle are found on the “Tire and Loading
Information” label located on the driver’s side door opening.
NOTE:
Refer to the Owner's Manual on the DVD for
more information regarding tire warnings
and instructions.
WARNING!
• Overloading of your tires is dangerous. Overloading can cause tire failure, affect
vehicle handling, and increase your stopping distance. Use tires of the recommended load capacity for your vehicle. Never overload them.
• Improperly inflated tires are dangerous and can cause collisions. Under-inflation is
the leading cause of tire failure and may result in severe cracking, component
separation, or “blow out”. Over-inflation reduces a tire’s ability to cushion shock.
Objects on the road and chuck holes can cause damage that results in tire failure.
Unequal tire pressures can cause steering problems. You could lose control of your
vehicle. Over-inflated or under-inflated tires can affect vehicle handling and can fail
suddenly, resulting in loss of vehicle control.
WHEEL AND WHEEL TRIM CARE
All wheels and wheel trim, especially aluminum and chrome plated wheels, should be
cleaned regularly 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.
118
MA INTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
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.
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.

Drunken driving is one of the most frequent causes of accidents. Your driving ability
The driver’s primary responsibility is the safe operation of the vehicle. Driving while
distracted can result in loss of vehicle control, resulting in a collision and personal
injury. FCA US LLC strongly recommends that the driver use extreme caution when using
any device or feature that may take their attention off the road. Use of any electrical
devices such as cell phones, computers, portable radios, vehicle navigation or other
devices by the driver while the vehicle is moving is dangerous and could lead to a
serious collision. Texting while driving is also dangerous and should never be done while
the vehicle is moving. If you find yourself unable to devote your full attention to vehicle
operation, pull off the road to a safe location and stop your vehicle. Some States or
Provinces prohibit the use of cellular telephones or texting while driving. It is always
the driver’s responsibility to comply with all local laws.

Driving after drinking can lead to an accident. Your perceptions are less sharp,
your reflexes are slower, and your judgment is impaired when you have been drinking.
Never drink and then drive.
