This guide has been prepared to help you
get quickly acquainted with your new Jeep
®
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.
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 1-877-426-5337 (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.
Not all features shown in this
guide may apply to your vehicle. For
additional information on accessories
to help personalize your vehicle, visit
www.mopar.com (U.S.), www.mopar.ca
(Canada) or your local Jeep brand dealer.
D r iv in g and A l cohol :
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 nondrinking driver, call a cab, a friend, or use public transportation.
Im por ta n t:
WARNING:
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.

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 Jeep®
vehicle best, has factory-trained technicians and genuine MOPAR® parts, and cares
about your satisfaction.

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

Pushing the REMOTE START button a third time shuts the engine off.
• To drive the vehicle, push UNLOCK button, insert the key in the ignition and turn

ignition key is placed in the ON/RUN position.
• The vehicle must be started with the key after two consecutive timeouts.
WARNING!
• Do not start or run an engine in a closed garage or confined area. Exhaust gas
contains Carbon Monoxide (CO) which is odorless and colorless. Carbon
Monoxide is poisonous and can cause serious injury or death when inhaled.
• Keep Key Fob transmitters away from children. Operation of the Remote Start
System, windows, door locks or other controls could cause serious injury or
death.
Remote Start Windshield Wiper De–icer Activation — If Equipped
When Remote Start is active and the outside ambient temperature is less than 40° F
(4.4° C), the wiper De-Icer will be enabled. On exiting remote start resume previous
operation except, if the De-Icer is active, the De-Icer timer and operation will continue.
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 decklid release are disabled. If something triggers
the alarm, the Vehicle Security Alarm will provide the following audible and visible
signals: the horn will pulse, the park lamps and/or turn signals will flash, and the
Vehicle Security Light in the instrument cluster will flash.
To Arm The System:
Lock the door using either the power door lock switch (one door must be open) or the
LOCK button on the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter (doors can be open or
closed), and close all doors.
The Vehicle Security Light in the instrument cluster will flash for 16 seconds. This
shows that the Vehicle Security Alarm is arming. During this period, if a door is
opened, the ignition is cycled to ON/RUN, or the power door locks are unlocked in any
manner, the Vehicle Security Alarm will automatically disarm.
12
GETTING STARTED
NOTE:
• The Vehicle Security Alarm will not arm if you lock the doors with the manual door
lock plungers.
• Once armed, the Vehicle Security Alarm disables the unlock switch on the driver
door trim panel and passenger door trim panel.
To Disarm The System:
Push the Key Fob UNLOCK button or cycle the ignition to the ON/RUN position.
The Vehicle Security Alarm is designed to protect your vehicle. However, you can create
conditions where the Vehicle Security Alarm will give you a false alarm. If one of the
previously described arming sequences has occurred, the Vehicle Security Alarm will
arm regardless of whether you are in the vehicle or not. If you remain in the vehicle and
open a door, the alarm will sound. If this occurs, disarm the Vehicle Security Alarm.
If the Vehicle Security Alarm is armed and the battery becomes disconnected, the Vehicle
Security Alarm will remain armed when the battery is reconnected. The exterior lights will
flash, and the horn will sound. If this occurs, disarm the Vehicle Security Alarm.
KEYLESS ENTER-N-GO
The Keyless Enter-N-Go system is an enhancement to the vehicle’s Remote Keyless
Entry (RKE) feature. This feature allows you to lock and unlock the vehicle's door(s)
and liftgate without having to push the Key Fob LOCK or UNLOCK buttons, as well as
starting and stopping the vehicle with the push of a button.
To Unlock From The Driver Or Passenger Side:
• With a valid Keyless Enter-N-Go Key Fob located outside the vehicle and within 5
ft (1.5 m) of the driver or passenger side door handle, grab either front door handle
to unlock the door automatically.

door lock switch, the doors and liftgate will unlock and the horn will chirp three
times. On the third attempt, your Key Fob can be locked inside the vehicle.
• After pushing the Keyless Enter-N-Go LOCK button, you must wait two seconds
before you can lock or unlock the vehicle using the door handle. This is done to

• If the shift lever is not in PARK, the ENGINE START/STOP button must be held for two
seconds and vehicle speed must be above 5 MPH (8 km/h) before the engine will shut
off.
15
GETTING STARTED
Accessory Positions With Engine Off
NOTE:
The following functions are with the driver’s foot OFF the Brake Pedal (Transmission
in PARK or NEUTRAL Position).
Starting With The Ignition Switch In The OFF Position:
• Push the ENGINE START/STOP button once to change the ignition switch to the
ACC position.
• Push the ENGINE START/STOP button a second time to change the ignition
switch to the ON/RUN position.
• Push the ENGINE START/STOP button a third time to return the ignition switch to
the OFF position.
NOTE:
If the ignition switch is left in the ACC or
ON/RUN (engine not running) position
and the transmission is in PARK, the
system will automatically time out after
30 minutes of inactivity and the ignition
will switch to the OFF position.
Ignition Positions
• In case the ignition switch does not change with the push of a button, the RKE
transmitter (Key Fob) may have a low or dead battery. In this situation, a back up
method can be used to operate the ignition switch. Put the nose side (side opposite
of the emergency key) of the Key Fob against the ENGINE START/STOP button and
push to operate the ignition switch.
SEAT BELT SYSTEMS
Lap/Shoulder Belts
• All seating positions in your vehicle are equipped with lap/shoulder belts.
• Be sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and using a seat belt properly.
• Position the lap belt so that it is snug and lies low across your hips, below your
abdomen. To remove slack in the lap belt portion, pull up on the shoulder belt.
To loosen the lap belt if it is too tight, tilt the latch plate and pull on the lap belt.
A snug seat belt reduces the risk of sliding under the seat belt in a collision.
• Position the shoulder belt across the shoulder and chest with minimal, if any slack
so that it is comfortable and not resting on your neck. The retractor will withdraw
any slack in the shoulder belt.
16
GETTING STARTED
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.

17
GETTING STARTED
Advanced Front Air Bags
• This vehicle has Advanced Front Air Bags for both the driver and front passenger
as a supplement to the seat belt restraint systems. The Advanced Front Air Bags
will not deploy in every type of collision.
• Advanced Front Air Bags are designed to provide additional protection by
supplementing the seat belts. Advanced Front Air Bags are not expected to reduce
the risk of injury in rear, side, or rollover collisions.
• The Advanced Front Air Bags will not deploy in all frontal collisions, including
some that may produce substantial vehicle damage — for example, some pole
collisions, truck underrides, and angle offset collisions.
• On the other hand, depending on the type and location of impact, Advanced Front
Air Bags may deploy in crashes with little vehicle front-end damage but that
produce a severe initial deceleration.
• Because air bag sensors measure vehicle deceleration over time, vehicle speed
and damage by themselves are not good indicators of whether or not an air bag
should have deployed.
• Seat belts are necessary for your protection in all collisions, and also are needed
to help keep you in position, away from an inflating air bag.
• After any collision, the vehicle should be taken to an authorized dealer immediately.
• Do not drive your vehicle after the air bags have deployed. If you are involved in
another collision, the air bags will not be in place to protect you.
• If it is necessary to modify the air bag system for persons with disabilities, contact
your authorized dealer.
• Refer to 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
18
GETTING STARTED
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.
Front Passenger Seat Occupant Status

* 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
• 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
19
GETTING STARTED
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
GETTING STARTED
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.
Not Seated Properly
• 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.
• Do not replace the seat cover or cushion with an aftermarket seat cover or
cushion.
Not Seated Properly
21
GETTING STARTED
• 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.
Supplemental Side Air Bags
• This vehicle is equipped with Supplemental Seat-Mounted Side Air Bags (SABs)
located in the outboard side of the front and rear (in vehicles equipped with
outboard rear seat SABs) seats. The SABs are marked with a SRS AIRBAG or
AIRBAG label sewn into the outboard side of the seats.
• This vehicle is equipped with Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtains
(SABICs) located above the side windows. The trim covering the SABICs is labeled
SRS AIRBAG or AIRBAG. The SABICs may help reduce the risk of partial or
complete ejection of vehicle occupants through side windows in certain side
impact events.
• The SABICs and SABs (“Side Air Bags”) are designed to activate in certain side
impacts and certain rollover events. 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.
22
GETTING STARTED
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
GETTING STARTED
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.
24
GETTING STARTED
NOTE:
EDR data are recorded by your vehicle only if a non-trivial crash situation occurs; no
data are recorded by the EDR under normal driving conditions and no personal data
(e.g., name, gender, age, and crash location) are recorded. However, other parties,
such as law enforcement, could combine the EDR data with the type of personally
identifying data routinely acquired during a crash investigation.
To read data recorded by an EDR, special equipment is required, and access to the
vehicle or the EDR is needed. In addition to the vehicle manufacturer, other parties,
such as law enforcement, that have the special equipment, can read the information
if they have access to the vehicle or the EDR.
CHILD RESTRAINTS
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:

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.
• All rear seating positions have lower anchors and top tether anchors.
LATCH System Weight Limit
You may use the LATCH anchorage system until the combined weight of the child and
the child restraint is 65 lbs (29.5 kg). Use the seat belt and tether anchor instead of
the LATCH system once the combined weight is more than 65 lbs (29.5 kg).
25
GETTING STARTED
Locating LATCH Anchorages
The lower anchorages are round bars that are found at the rear of the seat cushion
where it meets the seatback. 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
Locating Tether Anchorages
In addition, there are tether strap anchorages
located on the back of the seat.
behind each rear seating position
Tether Anchors
26
GETTING STARTED
Center Seat LATCH
The center seating position in this vehicle has a single dedicated anchorage. Use
anchorages 3 and 4 to install a child seat in the center position. Do not use
anchorages 2 and 3 to install a child seat. If you are installing three child restraints,
you must use the seatbelt to install the center child restraint and you must use the
LATCH anchors for the outboard position on the left side. You can use either the
LATCH anchors or the vehicle’s seat belt for installing the child seat in the outboard
position on the right side. See the vehicle owner’s manual for more information about
center LATCH.
Lower Child Seat Anchors
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.
27
GETTING STARTED
Installing The Child Restraint Using The Vehicle Seat Belts
The seat belts in the passenger seating positions are equipped with a Switchable
Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) that is designed to keep the lap portion of the
seat belt tight around the child restraint. Any seat belt system will loosen with time,
so check the belt occasionally, and pull it tight if necessary.
Tether 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. Route the tether strap to provide the most direct path for the strap between the
anchor and the child seat.
2. If your vehicle is equipped with adjustable rear head restraints, raise the head
restraint, and where possible, route the tether strap under the head restraint and
between the two posts. If not possible, lower the head restraint and pass the
tether strap around the outboard side of the head restraint.
28
GETTING STARTED
3. Attach the tether strap hook of the child restraint to the top tether anchorage and
remove slack in the tether strap according to the child restraint manufacturer’s
instructions.
Tether Anchorage Locations
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.
29
GETTING STARTED
HEAD RESTRAINTS
Head restraints are designed to reduce the risk of injury by restricting head
movement in the event of a rear impact. Head restraints should be adjusted so that
the top of the head restraint is located above the top of your ear.
WARNING!
The head restraints for all occupants must be properly adjusted prior to operating
the vehicle or occupying a seat. Head restraints should never be adjusted while the
vehicle is in motion. Driving a vehicle with the head restraints improperly adjusted
or removed could cause serious injury or death in the event of a collision.
NOTE:
Do not 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.

GETTING STARTED
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.
Rear Head Restraints
The rear outboard head restraints have three positions Up, Mid and Down. The center
head restraint has only two positions, Up and Down. When the center seat is being
occupied the head restraint should be in the raised position. When there is no
occupant in the center seat the head restraint can be lowered for maximum visibility
for the driver.
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

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

Refer to your Owner's Manual on the DVD for further information.
47
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
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.
48
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
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.
49
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
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.

brake, you may notice a small amount of brake pedal movement.
• The new Auto Park Brake feature can be used to apply the park brake automatically every time you park the vehicle. Auto Park Brake can be enabled and disabled
in the Settings menu in Uconnect.
• The parking brake can be engaged even when the ignition switch is OFF, however,
it can only be disengaged when the ignition switch is in the ON/RUN position.
60
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
• SafeHold a new feature that will automatically apply the park brake under certain
conditions. The EPB monitors the status of the driver’s seat belt, driver’s door and
pedal positions to determine if the driver may have exited while the vehicle is still
capable of moving and will then automatically apply the park brake to prevent the
vehicle from rolling.
• The EPB fault lamp will illuminate if the EPB switch is held for longer than
20 seconds in either the released or applied position. The light will extinguish
upon releasing the switch.
• Refer to the Starting And Operating section of your vehicle’s Owner’s Manual on
the DVD for further details.
CAUTION!
If the Brake System Warning Light remains on with the parking brake released, a
brake system malfunction is indicated. Have the brake system serviced by an
authorized dealer immediately.
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.
• When leaving the vehicle, always make sure the ignition is in the OFF mode,
remove the Key Fob from the vehicle, and lock your vehicle.
• Never leave children alone in a vehicle, or with access to an unlocked vehicle.
Allowing children to be in a vehicle unattended is dangerous for a number of
reasons. A child or others could be seriously or fatally injured. Children should
be warned not to touch the parking brake, brake pedal or the transmission gear
selector.
• Do not leave the Key Fob in or near the vehicle, (or in a location accessible to
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.
• Be sure the parking brake is fully disengaged before driving; failure to do so can
lead to brake failure and a collision.
• Always fully apply the parking brake when leaving your vehicle, or it may roll
and cause damage or injury. Also be certain to leave the transmission in PARK.
Failure to do so may allow the vehicle to roll and cause damage or injury.
• Driving the vehicle with the parking brake engaged, or repeated use of the parking
brake to slow the vehicle may cause serious damage to the brake system.

OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
PARKSENSE
ParkSense Front And Rear Park Assist
ParkSense can be enabled and disabled by pushing the ParkSense switch located on
the switch panel below the Uconnect display.
The six ParkSense sensors, located in
the rear fascia/bumper, monitor the area
behind the vehicle that is within the sensors’ field of view. The sensors can detect obstacles from approximately 12 in
(30 cm) up to 79 in (200 cm) from the
rear fascia/bumper in the horizontal direction, depending on the location, type
and orientation of the obstacle.
The six ParkSense sensors, located in the
front fascia/bumper, monitor the area in
front of the vehicle that is within the
sensors’ field of view. The sensors can
detect obstacles from approximately
ParkSense Switch
12 in (30 cm) up to 47 in (120 cm) from
the front fascia/bumper in the horizontal
direction, depending on the location, type and orientation of the obstacle.
When an object is detected within 2 meters behind the rear bumper while the vehicle
is in REVERSE, a warning will display in the Electronic Vehicle Information Center
(EVIC) or Driver Information Display (DID). In addition a chime will sound (when
Sound and Display is selected from the Customer Programmable Features screen of
the Uconnect System). As the vehicle moves closer to the object, the chime rate will
change from single 1/2 second tone (for rear only), to slow (for rear only), to fast,
to continuous.
Refer to your Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details.
62
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
ParkSense Active Park Assist
The ParkSense Active Park Assist system can be enabled and disabled with the ParkSense
Active Park Assist switch, located on the switch panel below the Uconnect display.
The ParkSense Active Park Assist system
is intended to assist the driver during
parallel and perpendicular parking maneuvers by identifying a proper parking
space, providing audible/visual instructions, and controlling the steering wheel.
The ParkSense Active Park Assist system
is defined as “semi-automatic” since the
driver maintains control of the accelerator,
shift lever and brakes. Depending on the
driver’s parking maneuver selection, the
ParkSense Active Park Assist system is
capable of maneuvering a vehicle into a
parallel or a perpendicular parking space
on either side (i.e., driver side or passenger side).
ParkSense Active Park Assist Switch
Refer to your Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details.
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.
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.
63
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
LANESENSE
The LaneSense system can be enabled and disabled with the LaneSense button
located on the switch panel below the Uconnect display.
• 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.
PARKVIEW REAR BACK UP CAMERA
Your vehicle may be equipped with the ParkView Rear Back Up Camera that allows
you to see an on-screen image of the rear surroundings of your vehicle whenever the
shift lever is put into REVERSE. The image will be displayed in the touchscreen
display along with a caution note to “check entire surroundings” across the top of the
screen. After five seconds this note will disappear. The ParkView camera is located on
the rear of the vehicle above the rear License plate.
64
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
NOTE:
The ParkView Rear Back Up Camera has programmable modes of operation that may
be selected through the Uconnect System. Refer to “Uconnect Settings” in “Understanding Your Instrument Panel” for further information.
When the vehicle is shifted out of REVERSE (with camera delay turned OFF), the rear
camera mode is exited and the previous screen appears again. When the vehicle is
shifted out of REVERSE (with camera delay turned ON), the camera image will
continue to be displayed for up to 10 seconds after shifting out of REVERSE unless
the vehicle speed exceeds 8 mph (13 km/h), the vehicle is shifted into PARK or the
vehicles ignition is cycled to the OFF position.
When enabled, active guide lines are overlaid on the image to illustrate the width of
the vehicle and its projected backup path based on the steering wheel position. A
dashed center line overlay indicates the center of the vehicle to assist with parking or
aligning to a hitch/receiver.
When enabled, fixed guide lines are overlaid on the image to illustrate the width of
the vehicle.
Different colored zones indicate the distance to the rear of the vehicle.
CAUTION!
• To avoid vehicle damage, ParkView should only be used as a parking aid. The
ParkView camera is unable to view every obstacle or object in your drive path.
• To avoid vehicle damage, the vehicle must be driven slowly when using ParkView
to be able to stop in time when an obstacle is seen. It is recommended that the
driver look frequently over his/her shoulder when using ParkView.
WARNING!
Drivers must be careful when backing up even when using the ParkView Rear Back
Up Camera. Always check carefully behind your vehicle, and be sure to check for
pedestrians, animals, other vehicles, obstructions, or blind spots before backing
up. You are responsible for the safety of your surroundings and must continue to
pay attention while backing up. Failure to do so can result in serious injury or
death.
NOTE:
If snow, ice, mud, or any foreign substance builds up on the camera lens, clean the
lens, rinse with water, and dry with a soft cloth. Do not cover the lens.

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 instrument panel if a malfunction is detected in any part of the airbag
system. If the Air Bag Warning Light is illuminated, the air bag system may not
be working properly and the 9-1-1 system may not send a signal to a 9-1-1
operator if an air bag is deployed. If the Air Bag Warning Light is illuminated,
have an authorized dealer service your vehicle immediately.
• If anyone in the vehicle could be in danger (e.g., fire or smoke is visible,
dangerous road 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
DURING OR AFTER AN ACCIDENT), the Uconnect features, apps and services, among others, will not operate.
NOTE:
Your vehicle may be transmitting data as authorized by the subscriber.

light will turn off once the 9-1-1 call is terminated. Have an authorized dealer
service the vehicle if the rearview mirror light is continuously red. On equipped
vehicles, this feature requires a functioning electrical system and an operable 1X
(voice/data) or 3G (data) network connection to function properly. If a connection
is made between a 9-1-1 operator and your vehicle, you understand and agree that
9-1-1 operators may, like any other 9-1-1 call, record conversations and sounds in

6. Stolen Vehicle Assistance — If your vehicle is stolen, contact local law enforcement immediately to file a stolen vehicle report. Once this report has been filed,
Uconnect care can help locate your vehicle. The Uconnect Care agent will ask for
the stolen vehicle report number issued by local law enforcement. As long as your
vehicle has an operable 1X (voice/data) or 3G (data) network connection, the
Uconnect Care Agent may be able to locate the stolen vehicle and work with law
enforcement to help recover it. Your vehicle must have an operable 1X (voice/
data) or 3G (data) network connection and must be registered with Uconnect
Access with an active subscription that includes the applicable feature.
7. WiFi Hotspot — WiFi Hotspot is an in-vehicle feature that connects your device to
an operable 1X (voice/data) or 3G (data) network using Uconnect Access and is
ready to go where ever you are. Once your vehicle is registered for Uconnect
Access, you can purchase a Wifi Hotspot subscription at the Uconnect Store.
After you've made your purchase, turn on your signal and connect your passengers
devices. It's never been easier to bring your home or office with you.
WARNING!
NEVER use the WiFi Hotspot when you are driving the vehicle. As the driver, you
should only use the WiFi Hotspot when the vehicle is parked in a safe location.
Failure to do so may result in an accident involving serious injury or death.

FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE OPERATION
1–SPEED FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE (4X4)
This feature provides on-demand Four-Wheel Drive (4X4) with no driver inputs or
additional driving skills required.
Under normal driving conditions, the front wheels provide most of the traction.
If the front wheels begin to lose traction,
power is shifted automatically to the rear
wheels.
NOTE:
On dry pavement under heavy throttle
input (where one may have wheel spin),
torque will be sent to the rear wheels to
improve vehicle launch and performance
characteristics.
1-Speed 4X4 Switch
2–SPEED FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE (4X4)
This electronically shifted Power Transfer Unit provides three mode positions:
• Four Wheel Drive High (4WD)
• Neutral (N)
• Four Wheel Drive Low (4WDLOW)
The 4X4 LOW range can be used when
additional traction is required to force the
front and rear wheels to rotate at the
same speed.
4X4 LOW is intended for loose, slippery
road surfaces only.
2-Speed 4X4 Switch
153
OFF-ROAD CAPABILITIES
The NEUTRAL position allows vehicles with 2-speed Four-Wheel Drive to be flat
towed (with all wheels on the ground) without damaging the drivetrain. Refer to
“Recreational Towing” for instructions on shifting into and out of NEUTRAL.
NOTE:
In 4X4 LOW the engine speed is approximately three times that of the normal driving
mode at a given road speed. Take care not to overspeed the engine and do not exceed
25 mph (40 km/h).

CARGO AREA FEATURES
Cargo Load Floor
The cargo load floor system has a load capacity of 400 lbs (181 kg).
To provide additional storage area, each rear seat can be folded flat. This allows for
extended cargo space and still maintains some rear seating room. Refer to “Rear
Seats” in “Getting Started” for further information.
Cargo Extension Panels
Cargo extension panels can be folded and unfolded. When the rear seats are moved
to the more forward positions and the rear seat backs are folded down, the extension
panels can be unfolded manually by hand (2 of them). The extension panels can be
used to extend the load floor to the rear seats and/or hide the gap between the load
floor and rear seats, or to assist in loading large items into the cargo area.
Cargo Tie-Down Hooks And Loops
The tie-downs located on the cargo area floor should be used to secure loads safely
when the vehicle is moving.
Cargo tie-down loops are located on the trim panels.
WARNING!
• Cargo tie-downs are not safe anchors for a child seat tether strap. In a sudden
stop or accident, a tie-down could pull loose and allow the child seat to come
loose. A child could be badly injured. Use only the anchors provided for child
seat tethers.
• To help protect against personal injury, passengers should not be seated in the
rear cargo area. The rear cargo space is intended for load carrying purposes
only, not for passengers, who should sit in seats and use seat belts.
WARNING!
The weight and position of cargo and passengers can change the vehicle center of
gravity and vehicle handling. To avoid loss of control resulting in personal injury,
follow these guidelines for loading your vehicle:
• Do not carry loads that exceed the load limits described on the label attached
to the left door or left door center pillar.
• Always place cargo evenly on the cargo floor. Put heavier objects as low and as
far forward as possible.
• Place as much cargo as possible in front of the rear axle. Too much weight or
improperly placed weight over or behind the rear axle can cause the vehicle to sway.
• Do not pile luggage or cargo higher than the top of the seatback. This could impair
visibility or become a dangerous projectile in a sudden stop or accident.

INSTRUMENT CLUSTER WARNING LIGHTS
– Low Fuel Warning Light
This warning light indicates when the fuel level reaches approximately 2.0 gal (7.8 L).
This light will turn on and a single chime will sound.
- 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 for four
minutes 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). The light will turn on when the
ignition switch is turned to the ON/RUN position and may stay on for as long as four
seconds.
If the ABS light remains on or turns on while driving, it indicates that the Anti-Lock
portion of the brake system is not functioning and that service is required. However, the
conventional brake system will continue to operate normally if the BRAKE warning light
is not on.
163
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
If the ABS light is on, the brake system should be serviced as soon as possible to restore
the benefits of Anti-Lock brakes. If the ABS light does not turn on when the ignition
switch is turned to the ON/RUN position, have the light inspected by an authorized
dealer.
- 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) Light
This light informs you of a problem with the Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) system.
If a problem is detected, the light will come on while the engine is running. Cycle the
ignition key when the vehicle has completely stopped and the shift lever/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 service center 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) which display in the Electronic Vehicle Information
Center (EVIC) or Driver Information Display (DID) when one or more of your tires is
significantly under-inflated. Accordingly, when the low tire pressure EVIC or DID
display 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.
164
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
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 EVIC or DID display.
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.

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.
166
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
– 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.
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.

WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
IF YOUR ENGINE OVERHEATS
In any of the following situations, you can reduce the potential for overheating your
engine by taking the appropriate action.
• On the highways — slow down.
• In city traffic — while stopped, put transmission in NEUTRAL, but do not increase
engine idle speed.
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” and you hear continuous chimes, turn the engine off
immediately and call for service.
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.

The battery in your vehicle is located in the front of the engine compartment, behind
the left headlight assembly.
NOTE:
The positive battery post is covered with a protective cap. Lift up on the cap to gain
access to the positive 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.
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.
187
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
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 serious 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.
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.
188
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
FREEING A STUCK VEHICLE
If your vehicle becomes stuck in mud, sand or snow, it can often be moved using a
rocking motion. Turn the steering wheel right and left to clear the area around the
front wheels. Press and hold the lock button on the shift lever. Then shift back and
forth between DRIVE and REVERSE, while gently pressing the accelerator.
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 two
seconds, you must push the brake pedal to engage DRIVE or REVERSE.
Use the least amount of accelerator pedal pressure that will maintain the rocking
motion without spinning the wheels or racing the engine.
CAUTION!
• Racing the engine or spinning the wheels may lead to transmission overheating
and failure. Allow the engine to idle with the transmission in NEUTRAL for at
least one minute after every five rocking-motion cycles. This will minimize
overheating and reduce the risk of transmission failure during prolonged efforts
to free a stuck vehicle.
• When “rocking” a stuck vehicle by shifting between DRIVE and REVERSE, do
not spin the wheels faster than 15 mph (24 km/h), or drivetrain damage may
result.
• Revving the engine or spinning the wheels too fast may lead to transmission
overheating and failure. It can also damage the tires. Do not spin the wheels
above 30 mph (48 km/h) while in gear (no transmission shifting occurring).
NOTE:
Push the “ESC Off” switch (if necessary), to place the Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
system in “Partial Off” mode, before rocking the vehicle. Refer to “Electronic Brake
Control” in “Starting And Operating” in the Owner’s Manual on the DVD for further
information. Once the vehicle has been freed, push the "ESC Off" switch again to restore
“ESC On” mode.
WARNING!
Fast spinning tires can be dangerous. Forces generated by excessive wheel speeds
may cause damage, or even failure, of the axle and tires. A tire could explode and
injure someone. Do not spin your vehicle's wheels faster than 30 mph (48 km/h)
or for longer than 30 seconds continuously without stopping when you are stuck
and do not let anyone near a spinning wheel, no matter what the speed.
189
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
RECOVERY STRAP — IF EQUIPPED
Your vehicle may be included with a recovery strap. Recovery straps do not act like
traditional tow straps, chains, or winch cables.
WARNING!
Recovery straps should only be used in emergencies to rescue stranded vehicles.
Only use Recovery straps on vehicles that fit within the recommended GVW of your
recovery strap. Only attach recovery straps to OE recommended anchor points or
emergency towing anchor points. Never attach to tow ball or vehicle tie down
point, these are not designed for this purpose. Never attach to vehicle steering,
drive train, or any other suspension components. NEVER pull a strap over sharp
edges or abrasive surfaces that can damage the recovery strap. NEVER use a
damaged strap, it has reduced strength. DO NOT attempt to repair straps. ONLY
persons involved in the recovery should be in either vehicle. No passengers.
Anyone inside the vehicles can be struck by strap recoil, causing serious injury.
MOVE bystanders at least 40 feet from the recovery area when using the recovery
strap.
Using Recovery Strap
1. Review all warnings and instructions first.
2. Position the recovery vehicle.
3. Connect the recovery strap.
4. Add a recovery damper or blanket.
5. Clear the danger zone.
6. Safely and slowly start pulling.
7. Disconnect the recovery strap after both vehicle are secure and parked.

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 “Instrument Cluster Warning Lights” in “What To Do In Emergencies” in this
guide or “Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)” or “Driver Information Display
(DID)” in “Understanding Your Instrument Panel” in your Owners Manual on the DVD for
further information.

ADDING FUEL
The gas cap is located behind the fuel filler door, on the passenger side of the vehicle.
If the gas cap is lost or damaged, be sure the replacement cap has been designed for
use with this vehicle.
NOTE:
When removing the fuel filler cap, lay the cap tether in the hook, located on the fuel
filler door reinforcement.
1. Push the fuel filler door release switch (located on the driver’s side door trim).
Fuel Filler Door Release Switch
2. Open the fuel filler door, and remove the fuel filler cap.
NOTE:
• In certain cold conditions, ice may
prevent the fuel door from opening. If
this occurs, lightly push on the fuel
door to break the ice buildup and rerelease the fuel door using the inside
release button. Do not pry on the door.
• When the fuel nozzle “clicks” or shuts
off, the fuel tank is full.
• Tighten the gas cap about one quarter
turn until you hear one click. This is an
indication that the cap is properly
tightened.
Fuel Filler Cap (Gas Cap)
• If the gas cap is not tightened properly, the MIL will come on. Be sure the gas cap is tightened every time the vehicle
is refueled.
210
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
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.
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 MIL to turn on.
• A fire may result if gasoline is pumped into a portable container that is inside
of a vehicle. You could be burned. Always place gas containers on the ground
while filling.
Emergency Fuel Filler Door Release
If you are unable to open the fuel filler door, use the fuel filler door emergency
release.
1. Open the liftgate.
2. Remove access door located on right interior trim panel for release cable with the
tip of your key.
3. Grab the release cable tether and pull up to release the fuel filler door.
Loose Fuel Filler Cap Message
If the vehicle diagnostic system determines that the fuel filler cap is loose,
improperly installed, or damaged, a “CHECK GASCAP” message will be displayed in
the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) or Driver Information Display (DID).
Refer to “Electronic Vehicle Information (EVIC) or "Driver Information Display (DID)”
in “Understanding Your Instrument Panel” for further information. Tighten the fuel
filler cap until a “clicking” sound is heard. This is an indication that the fuel filler cap
is properly tightened. Refer to “Onboard Diagnostic System” in “Maintaining Your
Vehicle” for further information.

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 Owners 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. Underinflation 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.
212
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
SPARE TIRES — IF EQUIPPED
NOTE:
For vehicles equipped with Tire Service Kit instead of a spare tire, please refer to “Tire
Service Kit” in “What To Do In Emergencies” on your DVD for further information.
CAUTION!
Because of the reduced ground clearance, do not take your vehicle through an
automatic car wash with a compact or limited-use temporary spare installed.
Damage to the vehicle may result.
Spare Tire Matching Original Equipped Tire And Wheel — If Equipped
Your vehicle may be equipped with a spare tire and wheel equivalent in look and
function to the original equipment tire and wheel found on the front or rear axle of
your vehicle. This spare tire may be used in the tire rotation for your vehicle. If your
vehicle has this option, refer to an authorized tire dealer for the recommended tire
rotation pattern.
Compact Spare Tire — If Equipped
The compact spare is for temporary emergency use only. You can identify if your
vehicle is equipped with a compact spare by looking at the spare tire description on
the Tire and Loading Information Placard located on the driver’s side door opening or
on the sidewall of the tire. Compact spare tire descriptions begin with the letter “T”
or “S” preceding the size designation. Example: T145/80D18 103M.
T, S = Temporary Spare Tire
Since this tire has limited tread life, the original equipment tire should be repaired
(or replaced) and reinstalled on your vehicle at the first opportunity.
Do not install a wheel cover or attempt to mount a conventional tire on the compact
spare wheel, since the wheel is designed specifically for the compact spare tire. Do not
install more than one compact spare tire and wheel on the vehicle at any given time.
WARNING!
Compact spares are for temporary emergency use only. With these spares, do not
drive more than 50 mph (80 km/h). Temporary use spares have limited tread life.
When the tread is worn to the tread wear indicators, the temporary use spare tire
needs to be replaced. Be sure to follow the warnings, which apply to your spare.
Failure to do so could result in spare tire failure and loss of vehicle control.
213
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
Full Size Spare — If Equipped
The full size spare is for temporary emergency use only. This tire may look like the
originally equipped tire on the front or rear axle of your vehicle, but it is not. This
spare tire may have limited tread life. When the tread is worn to the tread wear
indicators, the temporary use full size spare tire needs to be replaced. Since it is not
the same as your original equipment tire, replace (or repair) the original equipment
tire and reinstall on the vehicle at the first opportunity.
Limited-Use Spare — If Equipped
The limited-use spare tire is for temporary emergency use only. This tire is identified
by a label located on the limited-use spare wheel. This label contains the driving
limitations for this spare. This tire may look like the original equipped tire on the front
or rear axle of your vehicle, but it is not. Installation of this limited-use spare tire
affects vehicle handling. Since it is not the same as your original equipment tire,
replace (or repair) the original equipment tire and reinstall on the vehicle at the first
opportunity.
WARNING!
Limited-use spares are for emergency use only. Installation of this limited-use
spare tire affects vehicle handling. With this tire, do not drive more than the speed
listed on the limit-use spare wheel. Keep inflated to the cold tire inflation
pressures listed on your Tire and Loading Information Placard located on the
driver’s side B-Pillar or the rear edge of the driver’s side door. Replace (or repair)
the original equipment tire at the first opportunity and reinstall it on your vehicle.
Failure to do so could result in loss of vehicle control.
WHEEL AND WHEEL TRIM CARE
All wheels and wheel trim, especially aluminum and chrome plated wheels, should
be cleaned regularly with a mild soap and water to prevent corrosion.
To remove heavy soil and/or excessive brake dust, use MOPAR Wheel Cleaner or
equivalent or select a non-abrasive, non-acidic cleaner.
CAUTION!
Do not use scouring pads, steel wool, a bristle brush, or metal polishes. Do not use
oven cleaner. These products may damage the wheel's protective finish. Avoid
automatic car washes that use acidic solutions or harsh brushes that may damage
the wheel's protective finish. Only MOPAR Wheel Cleaner or equivalent is
recommended.

This guide has been prepared to help you
get quickly acquainted with your new Jeep
®
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.
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 1-877-426-5337 (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.
Not all features shown in this
guide may apply to your vehicle. For
additional information on accessories
to help personalize your vehicle, visit
www.mopar.com (U.S.), www.mopar.ca
(Canada) or your local Jeep brand dealer.
D r iv in g and A l cohol :
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 nondrinking driver, call a cab, a friend, or use public transportation.
Im por ta n t:
WARNING:
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.
