If you are the first registered owner of your vehicle,
you may obtain a complimentary printed copy of the
Owner’s Manual, Navigation/Media Center Manuals or
Warranty Booklet by calling 1-800-423-6343 (U.S.) or
1-800-387-1143 (Canada) or by contacting your dealer.
The driver’s primary responsibility is the safe operation of the vehicle. Driving while
distracted can result in loss of vehicle control, resulting in a collision and personal injury.
Chrysler Group LLC strongly recommends that the driver use extreme caution when using
any device or feature that may take their attention off the road. Use of any electrical
devices such as cell phones, computers, portable radios, vehicle navigation or other
devices by the driver while the vehicle is moving is dangerous and could lead to a serious
collision. Texting while driving is also dangerous and should never be done while the
vehicle is moving. If you find yourself unable to devote your full attention to vehicle
operation, pull off the road to a safe location and stop your vehicle. Some States or
Provinces prohibit the use of cellular telephones or texting while driving. It is always the
driver’s responsibility to comply with all local laws.
IMPORTANT: This User Guide is intended to familiarize you with the important features of
your vehicle. The DVD enclosed contains your Owner’s Manual, Navigation/Media Center
Manuals, Warranty Booklets, Tire Warranty and 24-Hour Towing 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

INTRODUCTION/WELCOME
WELCOME FROM CHRYSLER GROUP LLC
Congratulations on selecting your new Chrysler Group LLC vehicle. Be assured that it
represents precision workmanship, distinctive styling, and high quality - all essentials
that are traditional to our vehicles.
Your new Chrysler Group LLC vehicle has characteristics to enhance the driver's control
under some driving conditions. These are to assist the driver and are never a substitute
for attentive driving. They can never take the driver's place. Always drive carefully.
Your new vehicle has many features for the comfort and convenience of you and your
passengers. Some of these should not be used when driving because they take your
eyes from the road or your attention from driving. Never text while driving or take your
eyes more than momentarily off the road.
This guide illustrates and describes the operation of features and equipment that are
either standard or optional on this vehicle. This guide may also include a description of
features and equipment that are no longer available or were not ordered on this vehicle.
Please disregard any features and equipment described in this guide that are not
available on this vehicle. Chrysler Group LLC reserves the right to make changes in
design and specifications and/or make additions to or improvements to its products
without imposing any obligation upon itself to install them on products previously
manufactured.
This User Guide has been prepared to help you quickly become acquainted with the
important features of your vehicle. It contains most things you will need to operate and
maintain the vehicle, including emergency information.
The DVD includes a computer application containing detailed owner's information
which can be viewed on a personal computer or MAC computer. The multimedia DVD
also includes videos which can be played on any standard DVD player (including the
Media Center Touch-Screen Radios). Additional DVD operational information is located
on the back of the DVD sleeve.
For complete owner information, refer to your Owner's Manual on the DVD in the
owner’s kit provided at the time of new vehicle purchase. For your convenience, the
information contained on the DVD may also be printed and saved for future reference.
Chrysler Group LLC is committed to protecting our environment and natural resources.
By converting from paper to electronic delivery for the majority of the user information
for your vehicle, together we greatly reduce the demand for tree-based products and
lessen the stress on our environment.

SEAT BELT
• Be sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and using a seat belt properly.
• Position the lap belt across your thighs, below your abdomen. To remove slack in
the lap portion, pull up a bit on the shoulder belt. To loosen the lap belt if it is too
tight, tilt the latch plate and pull on the lap belt. A snug belt reduces the risk of
sliding under the belt in a collision.
• Position the shoulder belt on your chest so that it is comfortable and not resting on
your neck. The retractor will withdraw any slack in the belt.
• A shoulder belt placed behind you will not protect you from injury during a
collision. You are more likely to hit your head in a collision if you do not wear your
shoulder belt. The lap and shoulder belt are meant to be used together.
• A belt that is too loose will not protect you properly. In a sudden stop you could
move too far forward, increasing the possibility of injury. Wear your seat belt
snugly.
• A frayed or torn belt could rip apart in a collision and leave you with no protection.
Inspect the belt system periodically, checking for cuts, frays, or loose parts.
Damaged parts must be replaced immediately. Do not disassemble or modify the
system. Seat belt assemblies must be replaced after a collision if they have been
damaged (bent retractor, torn webbing, etc.).
• The seat belts for both front seating positions are equipped with pretensioning
devices that are designed to remove slack from the seat belt in the event of a
collision.
• A deployed pretensioner or a deployed air bag must be replaced immediately.
WARNING!
In a collision, you and your passengers can suffer much greater injuries if you
are not buckled up properly. You can strike the interior of your vehicle or other
passengers, or you can be thrown out of the vehicle. Always be sure you and
others in your vehicle are buckled up properly.
12
GETTING STARTED
SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM (SRS) —
AIR BAGS
• This vehicle has Advanced Front Air Bags for both the driver and right front
passenger as a supplement to the seat belt restraint system. The Advanced Front
Air Bags will not deploy in every type of collision.
• Advanced Front Air Bags are designed to provide additional protection by
supplementing the seat belts in certain frontal collisions depending on the severity
and type of collision. Advanced Front Air Bags are not expected to reduce the risk
of injury in rear, side, or rollover collisions.
• This vehicle is equipped with Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtains to
protect the driver, front and rear passengers sitting next to a window.
• This vehicle is equipped with Supplemental Seat-Mounted Side Air Bags to provide
enhanced protection to help protect an occupant during a side impact.
• If the Air Bag Warning Light
is not on during starting, stays on, or turns on
while driving, have the vehicle serviced by an authorized service center
immediately.
• Refer to the Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details regarding the
Supplemental Restraint System (SRS).
WARNING!
• Relying on the air bags alone could lead to more severe injuries in a collision.
The air bags work with your seat belt to restrain you properly. In some
collisions, the air bags won't deploy at all. Always wear your seat belts even
though you have air bags.
• Being too close to the steering wheel or instrument panel during Advanced
Front Air Bag deployment could cause serious injury, including death. Air
bags need room to inflate. Sit back, comfortably extending your arms to
reach the steering wheel or instrument panel.
• Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtains and Supplemental
Seat-Mounted Side Air Bags need room to inflate. Do not lean against the
door or window. Sit upright in the center of the seat.
• Being too close to the Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtain and/or
Seat-Mounted Side Air Bag during deployment could cause you to be severely
injured or killed.
• Do not drive your vehicle after the air bags have deployed. If you are involved
in another collision, the air bags will not be in place to protect you.
• After any collision, the vehicle should be taken to an authorized dealer
immediately.
13
GETTING STARTED
CHILD RESTRAINTS
• Children 12 years and under 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.
Integrated Child Booster Seat
• The Integrated Child Booster Seat is located in each outboard second-row
passenger seat, is designed for children weighing between 48 and 85 lbs (22 and
39 kg) and between 47 in (119 cm) and 57 in (145 cm) tall.
• To position a child into the Integrated Child Booster Seat follow these steps:
• Slide the second row seat to the full rear position to use the Integrated Child
Booster Seat.
NOTE: The second row bench with Integrated Child Booster Seat must remain in the
full rear position during use.
• Pull the release loop forward to release the latch and seat cushion.
• Grasp the latch plate and pull out
the seat belt.
• Lift the seat cushion up and push
back to lock it in the booster seat
position.
• Place the child upright in the seat
with their back firmly against the
seatback.
• Grasp the latch plate and pull out
the seat belt.
• Slide the latch plate up the webbing
as far as necessary to allow the seat
belt to go around the child’s lap.
NOTE: The lap portion of the seat belt
should be low on the hips and as snug as
possible.
• Once the seat belt is long enough to
fit properly, insert the latch plate
into the buckle until you hear a
“click.”
• To remove the slack from the lap belt, pull upward on the shoulder portion of the
seat belt.
14
GETTING STARTED
Installing The LATCH - Compatible Child Restraint System
• Your vehicle’s second row passenger seats are equipped with the child restraint
anchorage system called LATCH, which stands for Lower Anchors and Tether for
CHildren.
• All three second-row passenger seating positions have lower anchors that are
capable of accommodating LATCH-compatible child seats.
• Rigid fixed lower attachments can only be used in the outboard seating positions.
Flexible lower attachments can be used in all seating positions.
• When installing a child seat in the center seating position use one lower anchorage
from the outboard seating position and the center seat dedicated lower anchorage.
If two child seats are installed in adjacent seating positions you must use the
vehicle seat belt in the center seating position.
• You should NEVER install LATCH-compatible child seats so that two seats share a
common lower anchorage.
Installing The Lower Attachments:
• The vehicle lower anchorages are round bars located at the rear of the seat cushion
where it meets the seatback.
• Loosen the child seat adjusters on the
lower straps and on the tether strap so
that you can more easily attach the
hooks or connectors to the vehicle
anchors.
• Attach the lower hooks or connectors
over the top of the seatcover material.
• Tighten all three straps as you push the
child restraint rearward and downward
into the seat, removing slack in the
straps according to the child restraint
manufacturer’s instructions.
Installing The Top Tether Strap (With Either Lower Anchors Or Vehicle Seat Belt):
• Attach the tether strap to the anchor directly behind the seat where you are placing
the child restraint, being careful to route the tether strap to provide the most direct
path between the anchor and the child restraint, preferably between the head
restraint posts underneath the head restraint.
• Remove all slack and tighten tether
strap according to child restraint
manufacturer’s instructions.
NOTE: Ensure that the tether strap does
not slip into the opening between the
seatbacks as you remove slack in the strap.
15
GETTING STARTED
Installing The Child Restraint Using The Vehicle Seat Belts
• To install a child restraint, first, pull enough of the seat belt webbing from the
retractor to route it through the belt path of the child restraint and slide the latch
plate into the buckle.
• Next, extract all the seat belt webbing out of the retractor and then allow the belt
to retract into the retractor. Finally, pull on any excess webbing to tighten the lap
portion around the child restraint. Any seat belt system will loosen with time, so
check the belt occasionally, and pull it tight if necessary.
• Route the tether strap to provide the most direct path for the strap between the
anchor and the child seat, preferably between the head restraint posts underneath
the head restraint.
• Attach the tether strap hook of the child restraint to the tether anchor and remove
slack in the tether strap according to the child restraint manufacturer's
instructions.
NOTE: Ensure that the tether strap does not slip into the opening between the
seatbacks as you remove slack in the strap.
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.
• Rearward-facing child seats must never be used in the front seat of a vehicle
with a front passenger air bag. An air bag deployment could cause severe
injury or death to infants in this position.
• 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.

PLAYING iPod/USB/MP3 DEVICES
®
• There are many ways to play music from iPod /MP3 players or USB devices
through your vehicle's sound system.
1. Audio Jack
• The Audio Jack allows a portable device, such as an MP3 player or a cassette
player, to be plugged into the radio and utilize the vehicle’s sound system, using a
3.5 mm audio cable, to amplify the source and play through the vehicle speakers.
• Touching the Player soft-key then choose AUX source will change the mode to
auxiliary device if the Audio Jack is connected, allowing the music from your
portable device to be heard through the vehicle's speakers.
• The functions of the portable device are controlled using the device buttons. The
volume may be controlled using the radio or portable device.
2. USB Port
®
• Connect your iPod or compatible device using a USB cable into the USB Port.
USB Memory sticks with audio files can also be used. Then, audio from the device
can be played on the vehicles sound system while providing metadata (artist, track
title, album, etc.) information on the radio display.
®
• When connected, the iPod /compatible USB device can be controlled using the
radio or Steering Wheel Audio Controls to play, skip to the next or previous track,
browse, and list the contents.
®
• The iPod battery charges when plugged into the USB port (if supported by the
specific device).
48
ELECTRONICS
NOTE:
®
• When connecting your iPod device for the first time, the system may take several
minutes to read your music, depending on the number of files. For example, the
system will take approximately 5 minutes for every 1000 songs loaded on the device.
Also during the reading process, the Shuffle and Browse functions will be disabled.
®
This process is needed to ensure the full use of your iPod features and only
happens the first time it is connected. After the first time, the reading process of
®
your iPod will take considerably less time unless changes are made or new songs
are added to the playlist.
®
• The USB port supports certain Mini, Classic, Nano, Touch, and iPhone devices. The
USB port also supports playing music from compatible external USB Mass Storage
®
Class memory devices. Some iPod software versions may not fully support the USB
®
port features. Please visit Apple’s website for iPod software updates.
3. SD Card (8.4 & 8.4N Only)
• Play songs stored on an SD card inserted into the SD card slot.
• Song playback can be controlled using the radio or Steering Wheel Audio Controls
to play, skip to the next or previous track, browse, and list the contents.
4. Bluetooth® Streaming Audio
®
• If equipped with Uconnect™ Voice Command, your Bluetooth-equipped iPod
devices, cell phones or other media players, may also be able to stream music to
your vehicle's sound system. Your connected device must be Bluetooth-compatible,

WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
24-HOUR TOWING ASSISTANCE
• Dial toll-free 1-800-521-2779 or 1-800-363-4869 for Canadian residents.
• Provide your name, vehicle identification number and license plate number.
• Provide your location, including telephone number, from which you are calling.
• Briefly describe the nature of the problem and answer a few simple questions.
• You will be given the name of the service provider and an estimated time of arrival.
If you feel you are in an “unsafe situation”, please let us know. With your consent,
we will contact local police or safety authorities.
INSTRUMENT CLUSTER WARNING LIGHTS
- Electronic Stability Control (ESC) Indicator Light
• If this indicator light flashes during acceleration, apply as little throttle as
possible. While driving, ease up on the accelerator. Adapt your speed and driving
to the prevailing road conditions. To improve the vehicle's traction when starting
off in deep snow, sand or gravel, it may be desirable to switch the ESC system off.
- Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Light
• Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked monthly, when cold
and inflated to the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on
the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label. (If your vehicle has tires of a
different size than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation
pressure label, you should determine the proper tire inflation pressure for those
tires.)
• As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a Tire Pressure
Monitoring System (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or
more of your tires is significantly under-inflated. Accordingly, when the low tire
pressure telltale illuminates, you should stop and check your tires as soon as
possible, and inflate them to the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly
under-inflated tire causes the tire to overheat and can lead to tire failure.
Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the
vehicle’s handling and stopping ability.
• IF THE LIGHT STARTS FLASHING INDICATING A LOW TIRE PRESSURE, ADJUST THE AIR
PRESSURE IN THE LOW TIRE TO THE AIR PRESSURE SHOWN ON THE VEHICLE PLACARD
OR TIRE INFLATION PRESSURE LABEL LOCATED ON THE DRIVER'S DOOR. NOTE: AFTER
INFLATION, THE VEHICLE MAY NEED TO BE DRIVEN FOR 20 MINUTES BEFORE THE
FLASHING LIGHT WILL TURN OFF.
• Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is
the driver’s responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation
has not reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure
telltale.
65
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
• Your vehicle has also been equipped with a TPMS malfunction indicator to indicate
when the system is not operating properly. The TPMS malfunction indicator is
combined with the low tire pressure telltale. When the system detects a
malfunction, the telltale will flash for approximately one minute and then remain
continuously illuminated. This sequence will continue each time the vehicle is
restarted as long as the malfunction exists.
• When the malfunction indicator is illuminated, the system may not be able to
detect or signal low tire pressure as intended. TPMS malfunctions may occur for a
variety of reasons, including the installation of replacement or alternate tires or
wheels on the vehicle that prevent the TPMS from functioning properly. Always
check the TPMS malfunction telltale after replacing one or more tires or wheels on
your vehicle, to ensure that the replacement or alternate tires and wheels allow the
TPMS to continue to function properly.
NOTE: Tire pressures change by approximately 1 psi (7 kPa) per 12° F (7° C) of air
temperature change. Keep this in mind when checking tire pressure inside a garage,
especially in the Winter. Example: If garage temperature is 68°F (20°C) and the outside
temperature is 32°F (0°C), then the cold tire inflation pressure should be increased by
3 psi (21 kPa), which equals 1 psi (7 kPa) for every 12°F (7°C) for this outside
temperature condition.
CAUTION!
The TPMS has been optimized for the original equipment tires and wheels.
TPMS pressures and warning have been established for the tire size equipped
on your vehicle. Undesirable system operation or sensor damage may result
when using replacement equipment that is not of the same size, type, and/or
style. Aftermarket wheels can cause sensor damage. Do not use tire sealant
from a can, or balance beads if your vehicle is equipped with a TPMS, as
damage to the sensors may result.
- Engine Temperature Warning Light
• This light warns of an overheated engine condition.
• If the light turns on and a warning chime sounds while driving, safely pull over and
stop the vehicle. If the A/C system is on, turn it off. Also, shift the transmission
into NEUTRAL and idle the vehicle. If the temperature reading does not return to
normal, turn the engine off immediately.
• We recommend that you do not operate the vehicle or engine damage will occur.
Have the vehicle serviced immediately.
WARNING!
A hot engine cooling system is dangerous. You or others could be badly burned
by steam or boiling coolant. You may want to call an authorized service center
for service if your vehicle overheats.
66
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
BRAKE - Brake Warning Light
• The Brake Warning light illuminates when there is either a system malfunction or
the parking brake is applied. If the light is on and the parking brake is not applied,
it indicates a possible brake hydraulic malfunction, brake booster problem or an
Anti-Lock Brake System problem.
• Please have your vehicle serviced immediately.
WARNING!
Driving a vehicle with the red brake light on is dangerous. Part of the brake
system may have failed. It will take longer to stop the vehicle. You could have a
collision. Have the vehicle checked immediately.
- Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL)
• Certain conditions, such as a loose or missing gas cap, poor fuel quality, etc., may
illuminate the MIL after engine start. The vehicle should be serviced if the light
stays on through several typical driving cycles. In most situations, the vehicle will
drive normally and not require towing.
• If the MIL flashes when the engine is running, serious conditions may exist that
could lead to immediate loss of power or severe catalytic converter damage. We
recommend you do not operate the vehicle. Have the vehicle serviced immediately.
- Electronic Stability Control (ESC) Indicator Light/Brake Assist System (BAS)
Warning Light
• If the ESC/BAS warning light comes on continuously with the engine running, a
malfunction has been detected.

WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
IF YOUR ENGINE OVERHEATS
• In any of the following situations, you can reduce the potential for overheating by
taking the appropriate action.
• On the highways — slow down.
• In city traffic — while stopped, place the transmission in NEUTRAL, but do not
increase engine idle speed.
NOTE: There are steps that you can take to slow down an impending overheat
condition:
• If your air conditioner (A/C) is on, turn it off. The A/C system adds heat to the engine
cooling system and turning the A/C off can help remove this heat.
• You can also turn the temperature control to maximum heat, the mode control to
floor and the blower control to high. This allows the heater core to act as a
supplement to the radiator and aids in removing heat from the engine cooling
system.
CAUTION!
Driving with a hot cooling system could damage your vehicle. If the temperature
gauge reads 240°F (116 °C) or greater pull over and stop the vehicle. Idle the
vehicle with the air conditioner turned off until the pointer drops back into the
normal range 200–230°F (93–110°C). If the pointer remains at 240°F (116°C)
or greater and you hear a chime, turn the engine off immediately and call for
service.
WARNING!
You or others can be badly burned by hot engine coolant (antifreeze) or steam
from your radiator. If you see or hear steam coming from under the hood, do not
open the hood until the radiator has had time to cool. Never try to open a
cooling system pressure cap when the radiator or coolant bottle is hot.

WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
JACKING AND TIRE CHANGING
Jack Location
• The jack and jack-handle are stowed underneath a cover in the rear storage bin in
the cargo area.
• Remove the pouch containing the scissors jack, jack handle, and tools.
Spare Tire Stowage
NOTE: On Seven-Passenger Models, fold the third-row passenger seats flat. This will
provide more space when accessing the jacking tools and when operating the winch
mechanism.
• To remove the spare tire, remove the jack-handle components from the storage bin
in the cargo area and assemble them.
• Lower the spare tire by turning the spare tire drive nut, located in the jack storage
area, counterclockwise with the jack-handle assembly until the spare tire is on the
ground with enough cable slack to allow you to pull the spare tire out from
underneath the vehicle.
• Raise the tire upright so the tire’s tread is on the ground and tilt the retainer at the
end of the winch cable to remove it from the center of the wheel.
70
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
Preparations For Jacking
• Park on a firm, level surface. Avoid ice or slippery areas.
• Set the parking brake and place the shift lever into PARK.
• Turn the ignition to LOCK and turn on the Hazard Warning flasher.
• Block both the front and rear of the
wheel diagonally opposite of the
jacking position. For example, if
changing the right front tire, block the
left rear wheel.
NOTE: Passengers should not remain in the
vehicle when the vehicle is being jacked.
71
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
Jacking And Tire Changing Instructions
• Remove the spare tire, jack and tools from the stored location.
• Loosen (but do not remove) the wheel lug nuts by turning them counterclockwise
one turn while the wheel is still on the ground.
• Assemble the jack and jacking tools. Connect the jack handle driver to the
extension, then to the lug wrench.
• Place the jack underneath the lift area that is closest to the flat tire. Turn the jack
screw clockwise to firmly engage the jack saddle with the lift area of the sill flange.
• Raise the vehicle by turning the jack
screw clockwise. Raise the vehicle only
until the tire just clears the surface
and enough clearance is obtained to
install the spare tire.
• Remove the lug nuts, wheel cover (if
equipped) and wheel.
• Position the spare wheel/tire on the
vehicle and install the lug nuts with
the cone-shaped end toward the wheel.
Do NOT attempt to install a center cap
or wheel cover on the compact spare.
Lightly tighten the lug nuts clockwise.
To avoid the risk of forcing the vehicle
off the jack, do not tighten the nuts
fully until the vehicle has been
lowered.
• Lower the vehicle by turning the jack
screw counterclockwise, and remove
the jack and wheel blocks.
• Finish tightening the lug nuts. Push
down on the wrench while tightening
for increased leverage. Alternate nuts
until each one has been tightened
twice. The correct wheel nut tightness
is 95 ft lbs (130 N•m). If in doubt
about the correct tightness, have them
checked with a torque wrench by your
authorized dealer or at a service
station.
• Place the deflated (flat) tire and compact spare tire cover assembly in the rear
cargo area. Do not stow the deflated tire in the spare tire location. Have the full-sized
tire repaired or replaced as soon as possible.
• To stow the winch cable and retainer, fit the assembled jack-handle over the winch
drive nut. Rotate the jack-handle assembly clockwise until you hear the winch
mechanism click three times.
• Secure the jack and tools in their proper locations.
72
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
WARNING!
• Do not attempt to change a tire on the side of the vehicle close to moving
traffic. Pull far enough off the road to avoid the danger of being hit when
operating the jack or changing the wheel.
• Getting under a jacked-up vehicle is dangerous. The vehicle could slip off the
jack and fall on you. You could be crushed. Never get any part of your body
under a vehicle that is on a jack. If you need to get under a raised vehicle,
take it to a service center where it can be raised on a lift.
• The jack is designed to use as a tool for changing tires only. The jack should
not be used to lift the vehicle for service purposes. The vehicle should be
jacked on a firm, level surface only. Avoid ice or slippery areas.
• If it is necessary to retrieve the spare tire from under the vehicle on the side
of the vehicle close to moving traffic, pull far enough off the road to avoid the
danger of being hit.
• The compact spare tire is for emergency use only. Installation of this compact
spare tire affects vehicle handling.
• Do not drive more than 50 mph (80 km/h) with a compact spare tire.
• Keep the compact spare tire inflated to the cold tire inflation pressure, listed
on either your tire placard or limited use spare tire and wheel assembly.
• Replace (or repair) the original tire at the first opportunity and reinstall it on
your vehicle. Failure to do so could result in loss of vehicle control.
• Carefully follow these tire changing procedures to help prevent personal
injury or damage to your vehicle: Always park on a firm, level surface as far
from the edge of the roadway as possible before raising the vehicle.
• Raising the vehicle higher than necessary can make the vehicle less stable
and could cause it to slip off the jack and hurt someone near it. Raise the
vehicle only enough to remove the tire.
• A loose tire or jack, thrown forward in a collision or hard stop, could endanger
the occupants of the vehicle. Always stow the jack parts and the spare tire in
the places provided.
73
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
JUMP-STARTING
• If your vehicle has a discharged battery
it can be jump-started using a set of
jumper cables and a battery in another
vehicle or by using a portable battery
booster pack.
• Jump-starting can be dangerous if
done improperly so please follow the
procedures in this section carefully.
NOTE: When using a portable battery
booster pack follow the manufacturer's
operating instructions and precautions.
Preparations for Jump-Start
• The battery in your vehicle is located between the left front headlight assembly
and the left front wheel splash shield. To allow jump-starting there are remote
battery posts located on the left side of the engine compartment.
• Set the parking brake, shift the automatic transmission into PARK and turn the
ignition to LOCK.
• Turn off the heater, radio, and all unnecessary electrical accessories.
• Remove the protective cover over the remote positive (+) battery post. To remove
the cover, press the locking tab and pull upward on the cover.
• If using another vehicle to jump-start the battery, park the vehicle within the
jumper cables reach, set the parking brake and make sure the ignition is OFF.
Jump-Starting Procedure
• Connect the positive (+) end of the jumper cable to the remote positive (+) post of
the discharged vehicle.
• Connect the opposite end of the positive (+) jumper cable to the positive (+) post
of the booster battery.
• Connect the negative end (-) of the jumper cable to the negative (-) post of the
booster battery.
• Connect the opposite end of the negative (-) jumper cable to the remote negative
(-) post of the vehicle with the discharged battery.
• Start the engine in the vehicle that has the booster battery, let the engine idle a
few minutes, and then start the engine in the vehicle with the discharged battery.
Once the engine is started, remove the jumper cables in the reverse sequence:
• Disconnect the negative (-) jumper cable from the remote negative (-) post of the
vehicle with the discharged battery.
• Disconnect the negative end (-) of the jumper cable from the negative (-) post of
the booster battery.
74
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
• Disconnect the opposite end of the positive (+) jumper cable from the positive (+)
post of the booster battery.
• Disconnect the positive (+) end of the jumper cable from the remote positive (+)
post of the discharged vehicle.
• Reinstall the protective cover over the remote positive (+) battery post of the
discharged vehicle.
• If frequent jump-starting is required to start your vehicle you should have the
battery and charging system inspected at your authorized dealer.
CAUTION!
• Do not use a portable battery booster pack or any other booster source with a
system voltage greater than 12 Volts or damage to the battery, starter motor,
alternator or electrical system may occur.
• Failure to follow these procedures could result in damage to the charging
system of the booster vehicle or the discharged vehicle.
• Accessories that can be plugged into the vehicle power outlets draw power
from the vehicle’s battery, even when not in use (i.e., cellular phones, etc.).
Eventually, if plugged in long enough, the vehicle’s battery will discharge
sufficiently to degrade battery life and/or prevent the engine from starting.
WARNING!
• When temperatures are below the freezing point, electrolyte in a discharged
battery may freeze. Do not attempt jump-starting because the battery could
rupture or explode and cause personal injury. Battery temperature must be
brought above the freezing point before attempting a jump-start.
• Take care to avoid the radiator cooling fan whenever the hood is raised. It can
start anytime the ignition switch is on. You can be injured by moving fan
blades.
• Remove any metal jewelry, such as watch bands or bracelets, that might
make an inadvertent electrical contact. You could be severely injured.
• Batteries contain sulfuric acid that can burn your skin or eyes and generate
hydrogen gas which is flammable and explosive. Keep open flames or sparks
away from the battery.
• Do not allow vehicles to touch each other as this could establish a ground
connection and personal injury could result.
• Failure to follow this procedure could result in personal injury or property
damage due to battery explosion.
• Do not connect the cable to the negative post (-) of the discharged battery.
The resulting electrical spark could cause the battery to explode and could
result in personal injury.
75
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
SHIFT LEVER OVERRIDE
• If a malfunction occurs and the shift lever cannot be moved out of the PARK
position, you can use the following procedure to temporarily move the shift lever:
• To access the shift lever override, remove the cubby bin liner located in the
center console behind the shift lever. The override access port is at the front of
the cubby bin.
• Firmly set the parking brake.
• Turn the ignition switch to the ACC or ON position without starting the engine.
• Press and maintain firm pressure on the brake pedal.
• Using a screwdriver or similar tool, press and hold the override tab through the
access port on the center console.

WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
FREEING A STUCK VEHICLE
• If your vehicle becomes stuck in mud, sand or snow, it can often be moved by a
rocking motion. Turn your steering wheel right and left to clear the area around the
front wheels. Then, move the shift lever back and forth between REVERSE and
DRIVE. Using minimal accelerator pedal pressure to maintain the rocking motion,
without spinning the wheels, is most effective.
NOTE: If your vehicle is equipped with Electronic Stability Control (ESC) or Traction
, turn the system off before attempting to “rock” the vehicle.
Control
CAUTION!
• When “rocking” a stuck vehicle by moving between REVERSE and DRIVE, do
not spin the wheels faster than 15 mph (24 km/h), or drivetrain damage may
result.
• Revving the engine or spinning the wheels too fast may lead to transmission
overheating and failure. It can also damage the tires. Do not spin the wheels
above 30 mph (48 km/h) while in gear (no transmission shifting occurring).
WARNING!
Fast spinning tires can be dangerous. Forces generated by excessive wheel
speeds may cause tire damage or failure. A tire could explode and injure
someone. Do not spin your vehicle's wheels faster than 30 mph (48 km/h) when
you are stuck. Do not let anyone near a spinning wheel, no matter what the
speed.
78
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
EVENT DATA RECORDER (EDR)
• This vehicle is equipped with an event data recorder (EDR). The main purpose of
an EDR is to record, in certain crash or near crash-like situations, such as an air
bag deployment or hitting a road obstacle, data that will assist in understanding
how a vehicle’s systems performed. The EDR is designed to record data related to
vehicle dynamics and safety systems for a short period of time, typically
30 seconds or less. The EDR in this vehicle is designed to record such data as:
• How various systems in your vehicle were operating;
• Whether or not the driver and passenger safety belts were buckled/fastened;
• How far (if at all) the driver was depressing the accelerator and/or brake pedal;
and,
• How fast the vehicle was traveling.
• These data can help provide a better understanding of the circumstances in which
crashes and injuries occur.
NOTE: EDR data are recorded by your vehicle only if a non-trivial crash situation
occurs; no data are recorded by the EDR under normal driving conditions and no
personal data (e.g. name, gender, age, and crash location) are recorded. However, other
parties, such as law enforcement, could combine the EDR data with the type of
personally identifying data routinely acquired during a crash investigation.
• To read data recorded by an EDR, special equipment is required, and access to the
vehicle or the EDR is needed. In addition to the vehicle manufacturer, other
parties such as law enforcement, that have the special equipment, can read the
information if they have access to the vehicle or the EDR.
79
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
OPENING THE HOOD
• Pull the release lever located below the

• Raise the hood and locate the safety
latch, in the middle of the hood
opening.
• Move the safety latch while lifting the
hood at the same time.
• Insert the support rod into the slot on
the hood.
• To close the hood, remove the support
rod and place it in the retaining clip,
then lower the hood slowly.
WARNING!
Be sure the hood is fully latched before driving your vehicle. If the hood is not
fully latched, it could open when the vehicle is in motion and block your vision.
Failure to follow this warning could result in serious injury or death.

TIRE PRESSURES
• Check the inflation pressure of each tire, including the spare tire, at least monthly
and inflate to the recommended pressure for your vehicle.
• The tire pressures recommended for your vehicle are found on the “Tire and
Loading Information” label located on the driver’s side door opening.
NOTE: Refer to the Owner's Manual on the
DVD for more information regarding tire
warnings and instructions.
WARNING!
• Overloading of your tires is dangerous. Overloading can cause tire failure,
affect vehicle handling, and increase your stopping distance. Use tires of the
recommended load capacity for your vehicle. Never overload them.

MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
WARNING!
(Continued)
• Improperly inflated tires are dangerous and can cause collisions.
Under-inflation is the leading cause of tire failure and may result in severe
cracking, component separation, or “blow out”. Over-inflation reduces a tire’s
ability to cushion shock. Objects on the road and chuck holes can cause
damage that results in tire failure. Unequal tire pressures can cause steering
problems. You could lose control of your vehicle. Over-inflated or
under-inflated tires can affect vehicle handling and can fail suddenly,
resulting in loss of vehicle control.
WHEEL AND WHEEL TRIM CARE
• All wheels and wheel trim, especially aluminum and chrome plated wheels, should
be cleaned regularly with a mild soap and water to prevent corrosion.
®
• To remove heavy soil and/or excessive brake dust, use MOPAR Wheel Cleaner or
equivalent or select a non-abrasive, non-acidic cleaner.
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.

Driving and Alcohol: Drunken driving is one of the most frequent causes of collisions.
Your driving ability can be seriously impaired with blood alcohol levels far below the legal
minimum. If you are drinking, don’t drive. Ride with a designated non-drinking driver, call
a cab, a friend, or use public transportation.
WARNING!
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.
This guide has been prepared to help you get quickly acquainted with your
new Dodge and to provide a convenient reference source for common
questions. However, it is not a substitute for your Owner’s Manual.
For complete operational instructions, maintenance procedures and
important safety messages, please consult your Owner’s Manual,
Navigation/Media Center Manuals, Multimedia User Manual and other
