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 1-877-426-5337 (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. 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.

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 everything 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.

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.

Rollover Warning

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 use the ‘PARK’ position as a substitute for the parking brake. Always apply the parking brake fully when parked to guard against vehicle movement and possible injury or damage.

Refer to your Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details.

USE OF AFTERMARKET PRODUCTS (ELECTRONICS)

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

(Continued)

8

CAUTION! (Continued)

Leave the Key Fob in the ignition and either:

Jump Start the vehicle.

Charge the battery.

Contact your dealer for assistance on how to remove the Key Fob using the manual over ride method.

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 Fob inside the vehicle or in the ignition. A child could start the vehicle, operate power windows, other controls, or move the vehicle.

Do not leave children or animals inside parked vehicles in hot weather. Interior heat build-up may cause them to be severely injured or killed.

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.

Driving with the liftgate open can allow poisonous exhaust gases into your vehicle. You and your passengers could be injured by these fumes.

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, with a valid Keyless Enter-N-Go Key Fob within 5 ft (1.5m) of the driver's side of the vehicle, grab the front driver door handle to unlock the driver's door automatically, then press the Start/Stop switch. Or press the UNLOCK button, insert the Key Fob 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 is placed in the ON/RUN position.

The vehicle must be started with the Key Fob 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 you or others to be severely injured or killed when inhaled.

Keep Key Fob transmitters away from children. Operation of the Remote Start System, windows, door locks or other controls could cause you and others to be severely injured or killed.

GETTING STARTED

KEYLESS ENTER-N-GO

The Keyless Enter-N-Go system is an enhancement to the vehicle's Key Fob. This feature allows you to lock and unlock the vehicle's door(s) and liftgate without having to press the Key Fob lock or unlock buttons, as well as starting and stopping the vehicle with the press 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 (1.5m) of the driver or passenger side door handle, grab either front door handle to unlock the door automatically.

To Lock the Vehicle:

• Both front door handles have LOCK buttons located on the outside of the handle. With one of the vehicle's Keyless Enter-N-Go Key Fobs located outside the vehicle and within 5 ft (1.5m) of the driver's or passenger front door handle, press the door handle LOCK button to lock all four doors and liftgate.

NOTE:

If “Unlock All Doors 1st Press” is programmed all doors will unlock when you grab hold of the front driver's door handle. To select between “Unlock Driver Door 1st Press” and “Unlock All Doors 1st Press”, refer to the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) in your vehicle's Owner's Manual on the DVD or Programmable Features in this guide for further information.

If “Unlock All Doors 1st Press” is programmed all doors and liftgate will unlock when you press the liftgate button. If “Unlock Driver Door 1st Press” is programmed only the liftgate will unlock when you press the liftgate button. To select between “Unlock Driver Door 1st Press” and “Unlock All Doors 1st Press”, refer to the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) in your vehicle's Owner's Manual on the DVD or Programmable Features in this guide for further information.

If a Key Fob is detected in the vehicle when locking the vehicle using the power 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 pressing the Keyless Enter-N-Go LOCK button, you must wait 2 seconds before you can lock or unlock the vehicle using the door handle. This is done to allow you to check if the vehicle is locked by pulling on the door handle without the vehicle reacting and unlocking.

If a Keyless Enter-N-Go door handle has not been used for 72 hours, the Keyless Enter-N-Go feature for that handle may time out. Pulling the deactivated front door handle will reactivate the door handle's Keyless Enter-N-Go feature.

12

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 airbag 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.

SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM (SRS) — AIRBAGS

This vehicle has Advanced Front Airbags for both the driver and right front passenger as a supplement to the seat belt restraint system. The Advanced Front Airbags will not deploy in every type of collision.

Advanced Front Airbags 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 Airbags are not expected to reduce the risk of injury in rear, side, or rollover collisions.

This vehicle is equipped with Supplemental Side Airbag Inflatable Curtains to protect the driver, front and rear passengers sitting next to a window.

This vehicle is equipped with Supplemental Seat-Mounted Side Airbags to provide enhanced protection to help protect an occupant during a side impact.

13

GETTING STARTED

If the Airbag 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 airbags alone could lead to more severe injuries in a collision. The airbags work with your seat belt to restrain you properly. In some collisions, the airbags won't deploy at all. Always wear your seat belts even though you have airbags.

Being too close to the steering wheel or instrument panel during Advanced Front Airbag deployment could cause serious injury, including death. Airbags need room to inflate. Sit back, comfortably extending your arms to reach the steering wheel or instrument panel.

Supplemental Side Airbag Inflatable Curtains and Supplemental Seat-Mounted Side Airbags 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 Airbag Inflatable Curtain and/or Seat-Mounted Side Airbag during deployment could cause you to be severely injured or killed.

Do not drive your vehicle after the airbags have deployed. If you are involved in another collision, the airbags will not be in place to protect you.

After any collision, the vehicle should be taken to an authorized dealer immediately.

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.

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 rear seating positions have lower anchorages that are capable of accommodating LATCH-compatible child seats having flexible, webbing-mounted lower attachments.

Child seats with fixed lower attachments must be installed in the outboard positions only.

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

14

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

Attach the lower hooks or connectors over the top of the anchorage bars, pushing aside the seat cover material. The rear seat lower anchorages are round bars, located

at the rear of the seat cushion where it meets the seatback. The rear seat lower anchors can be readily identified by the symbol located on the seatback directly above the anchorages and are just visible when you lean into the rear seat to install the child restraint.

The tether strap should be attached to the tether anchor on the rear of the seatback (behind the gap panel) using the most direct path. DO NOT USE the cargo tie down loops located on the load floor.

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

into the seat.

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 seat belt 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.

Once you have completed securing the child restraint with the seat belt, secure the top tether strap. The tether strap should be attached to the tether anchor on the rear of the seatback (behind the gap panel) using the most direct path. DO NOT USE the cargo tie down loops located on the load floor.

15

GETTING STARTED

WARNING!

In a collision, an unrestrained child, even a tiny baby, can become a projectile inside the vehicle. The force required to hold even an infant on your lap could become so great that you could not hold the child, no matter how strong you are. The child and others could be severely injured or killed. Any child riding in your vehicle should be in a proper restraint for the child's size.

Improper installation of a child restraint to the LATCH anchorages can lead to failure of an infant or child restraint. The child could be severely injured or killed. Follow the manufacturer’s directions exactly when installing an infant or child restraint.

An incorrectly anchored tether strap could lead to increased head motion and possible injury to the child. Use only the anchor positions directly behind the child seat to secure a child restraint top tether strap.

Rearward-facing child seats must never be used in the front seat of a vehicle with a front passenger airbag. An airbag deployment could cause infants in this position to be severely injured or killed.

FRONT SEATS

Power Seats

• The recline switch, located on the outboard side of the seat, controls seatback adjustment.

• The power seat switch controls forward/back, up/down and tilt adjustment.

Power Lumbar

• Push the switch forward to increase the lumbar support. Push the switch

rearward to decrease the lumbar support.

• Pushing upward or downward on the switch will raise and lower the position of the support.

16

Memory Seat

• The memory seat feature allows you to save two different driver seating positions

(excluding lumbar position), driver's outside mirror, tilt/telescoping steering column position, and radio station preset settings. The memory seat buttons are located on the driver's door panel.

• Adjust all memory profile settings, press the SET button then press 1 or 2 within five seconds.

• To program a Key Fob to the memory position, place the ignition switch in the LOCK position and remove the Key Fob, press and release the LOCK button on the Key Fob to be programmed within 5 seconds of pressing button 1 or 2.

Place the ignition switch in the ON/RUN position, select Remote Linked to Memory in the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) and enter Yes.

Press 1 or 2 to recall the saved positions, or press UNLOCK on the programmed Key Fob.

Refer to the Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details.

Manual Seat Adjustment

Forward/Rearward

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

17

GETTING STARTED

Recliner

• Lift the rear lever located on the outboard side of the seat, lean back and release when seat is in desired position.

Fold-Flat Front Passenger Seat

• The front passenger seat can be folded flat to allow for extended cargo space. Pull up on the recliner lever to fold down the seatback.

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.

WARNING!

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)

If your vehicle is equipped with adaptive cruise control the controls operate exactly the same as the standard cruise control with one difference. You can set a specified distance you would like to maintain between you and the vehicle in front of you.

If the ACC sensor detects a vehicle ahead, ACC will apply limited braking or acceleration automatically to maintain a preset following distance, while matching the speed of the vehicle ahead.

If the sensor does not detect a vehicle directly ahead of you, it functions like a standard cruise control system, maintaining the speed you set.

Distance Setting (ACC Only)

To set or change the distance setting, press the Distance button and release. Each time the button is pressed, the distance setting adjusts between long (3), medium (2), and short (1). The distance setting will default to the last set mode the next time the vehicle is restarted and the ACC system is turned on.

The specified following distance for ACC can be set by varying the distance setting between 3 (long), 2 (medium), and 1 (short). Using this distance setting and the vehicle speed, ACC calculates and sets the distance to the vehicle ahead. This distance setting displays in the EVIC.

Mode (ACC Only)

If desired, the Adaptive Cruise Control mode can be turned off and the system can be operated as a standard (fixed speed) Cruise Control. When in the standard (fixed speed) Cruise Control mode the distance setting feature will be disabled and the system will maintain the speed you set.

To change between the different cruise modes, press the MODE button when the system is in either the OFF, READY or SET state. Pressing of the MODE button in any state will result in changing to the new Mode in the OFF state.

Refer to your Owner's Manual on the DVD for further information.

Forward Collision Warning

Forward Collision Warning (FCW) warns the driver of a potential collision with the vehicle in front of you and prompts the driver to take action in order to avoid the collision. A warning message (both audible and visual) will be displayed on the EVIC.

Refer to your Owner's Manual on the DVD for further information.

OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE

WARNING!

Leaving the Electronic or Adaptive Speed Control system on when not in use is dangerous. You could accidentally set the system or cause it to go faster than you want. You could lose control and have a collision. Always leave the Electronic or Adaptive Speed Control system off when you are not using it.

Electronic Speed Control can be dangerous where the system cannot maintain a constant speed. Your vehicle could go too fast for the conditions, and you could lose control. A collision could be the result. Do not use Electronic Speed Control in heavy traffic or on roads that are winding, icy, snow-covered or slippery.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is a convenience system. It is not a substitute for active driving involvement. Pay attention to road, traffic, and weather conditions, vehicle speed, distance to the vehicle ahead; and, brake operation to ensure safe operation of the vehicle under all road conditions. Your attention is always required while driving to maintain safe control of your vehicle. Failure to follow these warnings can result in a collision or serious personal injury.

The ACC system:

Does not react to pedestrians, oncoming vehicles, and stationary objects (i.e., 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 predict the lane curvature or the movement of preceding vehicles and will not compensate for such changes.

Does not always fully recognize complex driving conditions, which can result in wrong or missing distance warnings.

May not detect a vehicle ahead when strong light (for example, sunrise or sunset) is directly shining on the front of the vehicle.

Can only apply a maximum of 25% of the vehicle’s braking capability, and will not bring the vehicle to a complete stop.

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; and when towing a trailer.

When circumstances do not allow safe driving at a constant speed.

Failure to follow these warnings can result in a collision.

Forward Collision Warning (FCW) is not intended to avoid a collision on its own. 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.

26

ELECTRONIC RANGE SELECTION (ERS)

• Electronic Range Select (ERS) allows you to limit the highest available transmission gear, and can be activated during any driving condition. When towing a trailer or operating the vehicle in off-road conditions, using ERS shift control will help you maximize both performance and engine braking.

To switch from DRIVE mode to ERS mode, tap the shift lever to the left (-) once. The instrument cluster will display the current gear (the transmission may downshift), and the transmission will not upshift beyond that gear. Tapping the shift lever to the left (-) or right (+) will decrease or increase the top available gear. To disable ERS, simply hold the shift lever to the right (+) until “D” is again displayed in the instrument cluster.

Switching between ERS and DRIVE mode can be done at any vehicle speed.

Refer to your Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details.
