Vehicles Sold In Canada

With respect to any Vehicles sold in Canada, the name Chrysler Group LLC shall be deemed to be deleted and the name Chrysler Canada Inc. used in substitution therefore.

Driving And Alcohol

Drunken driving is one of the most frequent causes of accidents.

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

INTRODUCTION/WELCOME

Rollover Warning

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.

CAUTION!

Never park your vehicle over dry grass or other combustible materials. The heat from your vehicle exhaust system could cause a fire.

GETTING STARTED

KEY FOB

Locking And Unlocking The

Doors/Liftgate

Press the LOCK button once to lock all the doors and the liftgate. Press the UNLOCK button once to unlock the driver’s door only and twice within five seconds to unlock all the doors and liftgate.

All doors can be programmed to unlock on the first press of the UNLOCK button. Refer to Programmable Features in this guide.

WARNING!

Leaving unattended children in a vehicle is dangerous for a number of reasons. A child or others could be severely injured or killed. Children should be warned not to touch the parking brake, brake pedal, or the shift lever. Do not leave the key in the ignition. A child could operate power windows, other controls, or move the vehicle.

Remote Start

NOTE: The vehicle must be equipped with an automatic transaxle to be equipped with Remote Start.

• Press the REMOTE START button x2 twice within five seconds. Pressing the REMOTE START button a third time shuts the engine off.

To drive the vehicle, press the UNLOCK button, insert the key in the ignition and turn to the ON/RUN position.

With remote start, the engine will only run for 15 minutes (timeout) unless the 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.

8

GETTING STARTED

Panic Alarm

Press the PANIC button once to turn the panic alarm on.

Wait approximately three seconds and press the button a second time to turn the panic alarm off.

THEFT ALARM

To Arm

• Press the Key Fob LOCK button or the power door lock switch while the door is open.

To Disarm

• Press the Key Fob UNLOCK button and turn the ignition to the ON/RUN position.

SEAT BELT

• Be sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and using a seat belt properly.

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.

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.

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.

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. LATCH child restraint anchorage systems are installed at all three rear seating positions.

9

GETTING STARTED

Child seats with fixed lower attachments must be installed in the outboard positions only. Child seats with flexible lower attachments can be used in all three seating positions.

NEVER install LATCH-compatible child seats such that two seats share a common lower anchorage.

Loosen the adjusters on the lower straps and tether straps so that you can attach the hook or connector to the lower and tether anchorages more easily.

Attach the lower hooks or connectors over the top of the seatcover material.

The top tether strap should be routed over the center of the head restraint and attached to the top tether anchor on the rear of the seatback.

Tighten all three straps as you push the child restraint rearward and downward into the seat.

WARNING!

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.

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.

10

GETTING STARTED

Once you have completed securing the child restraint with the seat belt, secure the top tether strap. The tether strap should be routed over the center top of the head restraint.

WARNING!

Rearward-facing child seats must NEVER be used in the front seat of a vehicle with a front passenger airbag. An airbag deployment could cause severe injury or death to infants in this position.

FRONT SEATS

WARNING!

Adjusting a seat while the vehicle is moving is dangerous. The sudden movement of the seat could cause you to lose control. The seat belt might not be properly adjusted, and you could be severely injured or killed. Only adjust a seat while the vehicle is parked.

Manual Seat Adjustment

Forward/Rearward

Lift up on the adjusting bar located at the front of the seat near the floor and release at the desired position.

11

GETTING STARTED

Recliner

Lift the recliner lever located on the outboard side of the seat, lean back and release at the desired position.

Driver’s Seat Height Adjustment

The height adjustment lever is located on the outboard side of the seat. Raise the lever to raise the seat. Lower the lever to lower the seat.

Lumbar Support

The lumbar lever is on the outboard side of the seatback. Rotate the lumbar lever downward to increase the lumbar support or upward to decrease the lumbar support as desired.

WARNING!

Do not ride with the seatback reclined so that the seat belt is no longer resting against your chest. In a collision, you could slide under the seat belt and be severely injured or killed. Use the recliner only when the vehicle is parked.

Six-Way Power Seats

The power seat switch is located on the outboard side of the seat near the floor. Use the switch to move the seat up, down, forward, rearward, or to tilt the seat.

12

GETTING STARTED

CAUTION!

DO NOT place any article under a power seat or impede its ability to move as it may cause damage to the seat controls. Seat travel may become limited if movement is stopped by an obstruction in the seat’s path.

Fold-Flat Front Passenger Seat

The front passenger seat can be folded flat. Pull up on the recliner handle, to the full upward position, to fold down the seatback.

REAR SEATS

Folding Rear Seatback

To fold each rear seatback, pull the strap forward to move the seatback forward and flat.

Reclining Rear Seatback

To recline each rear seatback, pull the strap forward just enough to release the seatback latch. Then push the seatback to a reclined position, approximately 35 degrees maximum, and release the strap.

13

GETTING STARTED

HEATED SEATS

Front Heated Seats

The controls for the front heated seats are located on the center instrument panel area.

Press the switch once to select High-level heating. Press the switch a second time to select Low-level heating. Press the switch a third time to shut the heating elements Off.

WARNING!

Persons who are unable to feel pain to the skin because of advanced age, chronic illness, diabetes, spinal cord injury, medication, alcohol use, exhaustion or other physical conditions must exercise care when using the seat heater. It may cause burns even at low temperatures, especially if used for long periods of time.

Do not place anything on the seat that insulates against heat, such as a blanket or cushion. This may cause the seat heater to overheat. Sitting in a seat that has been overheated could cause serious burns due to the increased surface temperature of the seat.

CAUTION!

Repeated overheating of the seat could damage the heating element and/or degrade the material of the seat.

14

GETTING STARTED

TILT STEERING COLUMN

The tilt lever is located on the steering column, below the turn signal lever.

Push down on the lever to unlock the steering column.

With one hand firmly on the steering wheel, move the steering column up or down as desired.

Pull upward on the lever to lock the column firmly in place.

WARNING!

Do not adjust the steering column while driving. Adjusting the steering column while driving, or driving with the steering column unlocked, could cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle. Be sure the steering column is locked before driving your vehicle. Failure to follow this warning may result in severe injury or death.

OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE

CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION (CVT)

While conventional automatic transmissions typically have 4, 5 or 6 speeds, the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) has an infinite number of speeds. This allows it to adjust to exactly the right ratio to optimize performance and fuel economy.

Under hard acceleration, you may hear more engine noise than with a conventional transmission. The CVT may also occasionally feel like it is “shifting.” These characteristics are perfectly normal and contribute to the CVT's efficiency.

MANUAL CLIMATE CONTROLS

Air Recirculation

Use recirculation for maximum A/C operation.

For window defogging, turn the recirculation button off.

Recirculation is not allowed in defrost, floor, defrost/floor (mix) modes.
