If you are the first registered retail 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.

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.

INTRODUCTION/WELCOME

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.

This is a specialized utility vehicle designed for both on-road and off-road use. It can go places and perform tasks for which conventional two-wheel drive enclosed vehicles were not intended. It handles and maneuvers differently from many passenger cars both on-road and off-road, so take time to become familiar with your vehicle.

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.

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

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.

GETTING STARTED

KEY FOB

Locking And Unlocking The

Doors/Swing Gate

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

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

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.

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.

REMOTE START

• Press the REMOTE START button x2 on the Key Fob 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.

10

GETTING STARTED

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.

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 or 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.

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.

11

GETTING STARTED

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.

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 may be 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 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.

(Continued)

12

GETTING STARTED

WARNING! (Continued)

Being too close to the 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.

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.

Four-Door models: The rear outboard seating positions have lower anchors, and all three rear seating positions have top tether anchors. 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.

Four-Door Model

13

GETTING STARTED

Two-door models can accommodate flexible LATCH-compatible child seats in the two outboard seating positions only. Both rear seating positions have lower anchors and top tether anchors. Child seats with fixed or flexible LATCH-compatible attachments can be installed in either outboard seating position.

Loosen the child seat 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 anchorage bars, pushing aside the

seat cover material. You will easily feel the anchorage bars if you run

your finger along the intersection

of the seatback and seat cushion Two-Door Model surfaces.

The tether strap should be attached to the tether anchor on the rear of the seatback using the most direct path. For the outboard seating positions, route the tether underneath the head rest and attach the hook to the tether anchor located on the back of the seat.

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

Four-Door Model

Two-Door Model

14

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.

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 using the most direct path. For the outboard seating positions, route the tether underneath the head rest and attach the hook to the tether anchor located on the back of the seat.

WARNING!

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

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

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

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

15

GETTING STARTED

FRONT SEATS

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.

Height Adjustment

Ratchet the front lever, located on the outboard side of the seat,

upward to raise the seat height.

• Ratchet the lever downward to lower the seat height.

Recliner

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

Driver’s and Passenger Easy Entry Seats (Two-Door)

Push the lever on the seatback rearward (toward the rear of the vehicle) to tilt the entire seat forward.

To return the seat to a sitting position, rotate the seatback upright until it locks. Push the seat rearward until the track locks.

NOTE:

If equipped with a combination lever, the seatback will return to its first locked position. The recliner handle will have to be actuated to adjust the seatback to the desired reclined position.

16

GETTING STARTED

The front passenger seats have a track memory which returns the seat to just past the halfway point of the track, regardless of its original position.

The recliner and easy entry levers should not be used during the automatic returning of the seat to its fully upright position.

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.

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.

REAR SEATS

Folding Rear Seat

Be sure that the front seats are fully upright and positioned forward. This will allow the rear seat to fold down easily.

To Fold The Rear Seat

Lift the seatback release lever and fold the seatback forward (two-door models).

Slowly flip the entire seat (two-door models) forward.

17

GETTING STARTED

Locate the pull strap, located on the outboard side of the seat, and pull it toward you until the seatback releases (four-door models).

To Raise The Rear Seat

• Lift up on the seatback to return it to the upright position.

WARNING!

It is extremely dangerous to ride in a cargo area, inside or outside of a vehicle. In a collision, people riding in these areas are more likely to be severely injured or killed. Do not allow people to ride in any area of your vehicle that is not equipped with seats and seat belts. Be sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and using a seat belt properly.

Be certain that the seatback is securely locked into position. If the seatback is not securely locked into position, the seat will not provide the proper stability for child seats and/or passengers. An improperly latched seat could cause you or others to be severely injured or killed.

18

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 you or others being severely injured or killed.

19

GETTING STARTED

HEATED SEATS

Front Heated Seats

The controls for front heated seats are located near the bottom center of the instrument panel (below the heater/air conditioning controls).

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.

If the High-level setting is selected, the system will automatically switch to Low-level after approximately 30 minutes. The Low-level setting will turn Off automatically after approximately 30 minutes.

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 or seatback 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.

20

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. For the recommended viscosity and quality grades, refer to “Maintaining Your Vehicle”.

NOTE: A new engine may consume some oil during its first few thousand miles (kilometers) of operation. This should be considered a normal part of the break-in and not interpreted as an indication of difficulty.

CAUTION!

Never use Non-Detergent Oil or Straight Mineral Oil in the engine or damage may result.

21
