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.

When one or more of the doors have been opened or closed and the ignition is in the OFF position, the instrument cluster will display the vehicle mileage for a few seconds. Reconfigurable Instrument Cluster Display During operation, the instrument cluster display is divided into multiple sections which show driving data, warnings and failure indications. Instrument Cluster Display 42 1. Headlight Warning Lights 2. Gearbox Information 3. Front, Side Anti-Collision Systems, Cruise Control 4. Speed Limit Warning Light 7. Vehicle Range 5. Compass 8. Failure Warning Lights 6. Reconfigurable Main Area 9. Odometer WARNING LIGHTS AND MESSAGES ON THE INSTRUMENT PANEL The following pages consist of warning lights and messages. Note: The warning light turns on together with a dedicated message and/or chime when applicable. These indications are precautionary and as such must not be considered as exhaustive and/or alternative to the information contained in the Owner’s Manual, which you are advised to read carefully in all cases. Always refer to the information in this section in the event of a failure indication. The failure indicators appearing on the display are divided into two categories: very serious and less serious faults. Serious faults are indicated by a repeated and prolonged warning "cycle.” Less serious faults are indicated by a warning "cycle" with a shorter duration. You can stop the warning cycle in both cases by pushing the button located on the windshield wiper stalk. The instrument panel warning light will stay on until the cause of the failure is eliminated. Red Warning Lights Warning Light What It Means INSUFFICIENT BRAKE FLUID/ELECTRIC PARK BRAKE ON This light monitors various brake functions, including brake fluid level and parking brake application. If the brake light turns on it may indicate that the parking brake is applied, that the brake fluid level is low, or that there is a problem with the anti-lock brake system reservoir. If the light remains on when the parking brake has been disengaged, and the fluid level is at the full mark on the master cylinder reservoir, it indicates a possible brake hydraulic system malfunction or that a problem with the Brake Booster has been detected by the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) / Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system. In this case, the light will remain on until the condition has been corrected. If the problem is related to the Brake Booster, the ABS pump will run when applying the brake, and a brake pedal pulsation may be felt during each stop. What To Do For low brake fluid level, go to an authorized dealer to have the system checked as soon as possible. Release the electric park brake, then check that the warning light has turned off. If the warning light stays on, contact an authorized dealer. 43 GETTING TO KNOW YOUR INSTRUMENT PANEL 44 Warning Light What It Means ELECTRONIC BRAKING FORCE DISTRIBUTION (EBD) FAILURE The simultaneous turning on of the BRAKE (red) and (amber) warning lights with the engine on indicates either a failure of the EBD system or that the system is not available. In this case, the rear wheels may suddenly lock and the vehicle may swerve when braking abruptly. What To Do Drive very carefully to the nearest authorized dealer to have the system inspected immediately. AIR BAG WARNING LIGHT This light will turn on for four to eight seconds as a bulb check when the ignition is placed in the ON/RUN position. If the light is either not on during startup, stays on, or turns on while driving, have the system inspected at an authorized dealer as soon as possible. This light will illuminate with a single chime when a fault with the Air Bag Warning Light has been detected, it will stay on until the fault is cleared. If the light comes on intermittently or remains on while driving, have an authorized dealer service the vehicle immediately. If the problem persists, contact an authorized dealer. SEAT BELT REMINDER WARNING LIGHT When the ignition is first placed in the ON/RUN position, if the driver’s seat belt is unbuckled, a chime will sound and the light will turn on. When driving, if the driver or front passenger seat belt remains unbuckled, the Seat Belt Reminder Light will flash or remain on continuously and a chime will sound. Refer to “Occupant Restraints” in “Safety” for further information. Always wear your seat belt when operating the vehicle. OIL TEMPERATURE WARNING LIGHT This telltale indicates engine oil temperature is high. Stop the vehicle and shut off the engine as soon as possible. If the problem persists, contact an authorized dealer. Warning! The fault of the warning light is signaled by the turning on of the icon on the instrument panel. In this case, the warning light may not indicate any faults with the restraint systems. Before proceeding, contact an authorized dealer to have the system checked immediately. If the warning light does not turn on when the ignition device is moved to ON or if it stays on when driving (together with the message on the display), there might be a fault in the restraint systems; in this case, the air bags or pretensioners may not deploy in the event of an accident or, in a lower number of cases, they could deploy erroneously. Before proceeding, contact an authorized dealer to have the system checked immediately. Amber Warning Lights Warning Light What It Means What To Do ANTI-LOCK BRAKE (ABS) INDICATOR LIGHT This light monitors the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS). The light will turn on when the ignition is placed in the ON/RUN position and may stay on for as long as four seconds. If the ABS light remains on or turns on while driving, then the Anti-Lock portion of the brake system is not functioning and service is required. However, the conventional brake system will continue to operate normally if the brake indicator light is not on. If the ABS light is on, the brake system should be serviced as soon as possible to restore the benefits of Anti-Lock Brakes. If the ABS light does not turn on when the ignition is placed in the ON/RUN position, have the light inspected by an authorized dealer. Drive carefully and contact an authorized dealer as soon as possible. TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING INDICATOR LIGHT The warning light switches on and a message is displayed to indicate that the tire pressure is lower than the recommended value and/or that slow pressure loss is occurring. In these cases, optimal tire duration and fuel consumption may not be guaranteed. Should one or more tires be in the condition mentioned above, the display will show the indications corresponding to each tire in sequence. Continue driving for up to 50 miles (80 km) at a speed no higher then 50 mph (80 km/h). Contact an authorized dealer to have the tire repaired. 45 GETTING TO KNOW YOUR INSTRUMENT PANEL 46 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. 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. 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 upon subsequent vehicle start-ups 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. 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. Using aftermarket tire sealants may cause the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) sensor to become inoperable. After using an aftermarket tire sealant it is recommended that you take your vehicle to an authorized dealership to have your sensor function checked. Warning Light What It Means Tire Pressure Low The indicator light will illuminate to indicate that the tire pressure is lower than the recommended value and/or that slow pressure loss is occurring. In these cases, optimal tire duration and fuel consumption may not be guaranteed.

It also alerts the driver of when these components are no longer in peak warning condition by switching on the light on the instrument panel (see “Warning Lights And Messages” paragraph in this chapter). The aim of the OBD system (Onboard Diagnostic) is to: Monitor the efficiency of the system Indicate an increase in emissions Indicate the need to replace damaged components The vehicle also has a connector, which can interface with appropriate tools, that makes it possible to read the error codes stored in the electronic control units together with a series of specific parameters for engine operation and diagnosis. This check can be carried out by your authorized dealer. Your vehicle is required to have an Onboard Diagnostic system (OBD II) and a connection port to allow access to information related to the performance of your emissions controls. Authorized service technicians may need to access this information to assist with the diagnosis and service of your vehicle and emissions system. Note: After eliminating a fault, to check the system completely, your authorized dealer is obliged to run tests and, if necessary certain road tests. Warning! ONLY an authorized service technician should connect equipment to the OBD II connection port in order to diagnose or service your vehicle. If unauthorized equipment is connected to the OBD II connection port, such as a driver-behavior tracking device, it may: – Be possible that vehicle systems, including safety related systems, could be impaired or a loss of vehicle control could occur that may result in an accident involving serious injury or death. – Access, or allow others to access, information stored in your vehicle systems, including personal information. For further information, refer to “Cybersecurity” in “Multimedia”. 63 This page is intentionally left blank 64 SAFETY This very important section describes the safety systems that your vehicle may be equipped with, and provides instructions on how to use them correctly. ACTIVE SAFETY SYSTEMS . . . . . AUXILIARY DRIVING SYSTEMS . . OCCUPANT RESTRAINT SYSTEMS SAFETY TIPS . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .66 . .69 . .78 .104 65 SAFETY ACTIVE SAFETY SYSTEMS The vehicle may be equipped with the following active safety devices: Anti-Lock Braking (ABS) System Drive Train Control (DTC) System Electronic Stability Control (ESC) System Traction Control System (TCS) Panic Brake Assist (PBA) System Hill Start Assist (HSA) System Dynamic Steering Torque (DST) System Active Torque Vectoring (ATV) System (If Equipped) For the operation of the systems, see the following pages. Anti-Lock Braking (ABS) System An integral part of the braking system, the ABS prevents one or more wheels from locking and slipping in all road surface conditions, regardless of the intensity of the braking action. The system ensures that the vehicle can be controlled even during emergency braking, allowing the driver to optimize stopping distances. The system intervenes during braking when the wheels are about to lock, typically in emergency braking or low-grip conditions where locking may be more frequent. 66 The system also improves control and stability of the vehicle when braking on a surface where the grip of the left and right wheels varies, such as in a corner. The Electronic Braking Force Distribution (EBD) system works with the ABS, allowing the brake force to be distributed between the front and rear wheels. System Intervention The ABS equipped on this vehicle is provided with the "Brake-by-wire" (Integrated Brake System - IBS) function. With this system, the command given by pressing the brake pedal is not transmitted hydraulically, but electrically. Therefore, the light pulsation that is felt on the pedal with the traditional system is no longer noticeable. Warning! The ABS contains sophisticated electronic equipment that may be susceptible to interference caused by improperly installed or high output radio transmitting equipment. This interference can cause possible loss of anti-lock braking capability. Installation of such equipment should be performed by qualified professionals. Pumping of the Anti-Lock Brakes will diminish their effectiveness and may lead to a collision. Pumping makes the stopping distance longer. Just press firmly on your brake pedal when you need to slow down or stop. The ABS cannot prevent the natural laws of physics from acting on the vehicle, nor can it increase braking or steering efficiency beyond that afforded by the condition of the vehicle brakes and tires or the traction afforded. The ABS cannot prevent collisions, including those resulting from excessive speed in turns, following another vehicle too closely, or hydroplaning. The capabilities of an ABS equipped vehicle must never be exploited in a reckless or dangerous manner that could jeopardize the user’s safety or the safety of others. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) System The ESC system improves the directional control and stability of the vehicle in various driving conditions. The ESC system corrects the vehicle’s understeer and oversteer, distributing the brake force on the appropriate wheels. The torque supplied by the engine can also be reduced in order to maintain control of the vehicle. The ESC system uses sensors installed on the vehicle to determine the path that the driver intends to follow and compares it with the vehicle’s effective path. When the real path deviates from the desired path, the ESC system intervenes to counter the vehicle’s understeer or oversteer. Oversteer occurs when the vehicle is turning more than it should according to the angle of the steering wheel. Understeer occurs when the vehicle is turning less than it should according to the angle of the steering wheel. System Intervention The intervention of the system is indicated by the flashing of the ESC warning light on the instrument panel, to inform the driver that the vehicle stability and grip are critical. Warning! Electronic Stability Control (ESC) cannot prevent the natural laws of physics from acting on the vehicle, nor can it increase the traction afforded by prevailing road conditions. ESC cannot prevent accidents, including those resulting from excessive speed in turns, driving on very slippery surfaces, or hydroplaning. ESC also cannot prevent accidents resulting from loss of vehicle control due to inappropriate driver input for the conditions. Only a safe, attentive, and skillful driver can prevent accidents. The capabilities of an ESC equipped vehicle must never be exploited in a reckless or dangerous manner which could jeopardize the user’s safety or the safety of others. Vehicle modifications, or failure to properly maintain your vehicle, may change the handling characteristics of your vehicle, and may negatively affect the performance of the ESC system. Changes to the steering system, suspension, braking system, tire type and size or wheel size may adversely affect ESC performance. Improperly inflated and unevenly worn tires may also degrade ESC performance. Any vehicle modification or poor vehicle maintenance that reduces the effectiveness of the ESC system can increase the risk of loss of vehicle control, vehicle rollover, personal injury and death. Traction Control System (TCS) The system automatically operates in the event of slipping, loss of grip on wet roads (hydroplaning), and acceleration on one or both drive wheels on roads that are slippery, snowy, icy, etc. Depending on the slipping conditions, two different control systems are activated: If the slipping involves both drive wheels, the system intervenes, reducing the power transmitted by the engine. If the slipping only involves one of the drive wheels, the Brake Limited Differential (BLD) function is activated, automatically braking the wheel which is slipping (the behavior of a self-locking differential is simulated). This will increase the engine torque transferred to the wheel which isn't slipping. System Intervention The intervention of the system is indicated by the flashing of the ESC warning light on the instrument panel, to inform the driver that the vehicle stability and grip are critical. Panic Brake Assist (PBA) System The PBA system is designed to improve the vehicle’s braking capacity during emergency braking. The system detects emergency braking by monitoring the speed and force with which the brake pedal is pressed, and 67 SAFETY consequently applies the optimal brake pressure. This can reduce the braking distance: the PBA system therefore complements the ABS. Maximum assistance from the PBA system is obtained by pressing the brake pedal very quickly. In addition, the brake pedal should be pressed continuously during braking, avoiding intermittent presses, to get the most out of the system. Do not reduce pressure on the brake pedal until braking is no longer necessary. The PBA system is deactivated when the brake pedal is released. Warning! The Panic Brake Assist (PBA) cannot prevent the natural laws of physics from acting on the vehicle, nor can it increase the traction afforded by prevailing road conditions. PBA cannot prevent collisions, including those resulting from excessive speed in turns, driving on very slippery surfaces, or hydroplaning. The capabilities of a PBA-equipped vehicle must never be exploited in a reckless or dangerous manner, which could jeopardize the user's safety or the safety of others. 68 Hill Start Assist (HSA) System This is an integral part of the ESC system and facilitates starting on slopes, activating automatically in the following cases: Uphill: vehicle stationary on a road with a gradient higher than 5%, engine running, brake pressed and transmission in NEUTRAL (N) or gear other than REVERSE (R) engaged. Downhill: vehicle stationary on a road with a gradient higher than 5%, engine running, brake pressed and reverse gear engaged. When setting off, the ESC system control unit maintains the braking pressure on the wheels until the engine torque necessary for starting is reached, or in any case for a maximum of two seconds, allowing your right foot to be moved easily from the brake pedal to the accelerator. The system will automatically deactivate after two seconds without starting, gradually releasing the braking pressure. During this release stage, it is possible to hear a typical mechanical brake release noise, indicating the imminent movement of the vehicle. Warning! There may be situations where the Hill Start Assist (HSA) will not activate and slight rolling may occur, such as on minor hills or with a loaded vehicle, or while pulling a trailer. HSA is not a substitute for active driving involvement. It is always the driver’s responsibility to be attentive to distance to other vehicles, people, and objects, and most importantly brake operation to ensure safe operation of the vehicle under all road conditions. Your complete attention is always required while driving to maintain safe control of your vehicle. Failure to follow these warnings can result in a collision or serious personal injury. Dynamic Steering Torque (DST) System The DST function uses the integration of the ESC system with the electric power steering to increase the safety level of the whole vehicle. In critical situations (braking on surfaces with different grip conditions), the ESC system controls the steering through the DST function to implement an additional torque contribution on the steering wheel in order to suggest the most correct maneuver to the driver. The coordinated action of the brakes and steering increases the sensation of safety and control of the vehicle. Note: AUXILIARY DRIVING SYSTEMS The DST feature is only meant to help the driver realize the correct course of action through small torques on the steering wheel, which means the effectiveness of the DST feature is highly dependent on the driver’s sensitivity and overall reaction to the applied torque. It is very important to realize that this feature will not steer the vehicle, meaning the driver is still responsible for steering the vehicle. The following auxiliary driving systems are available in this vehicle: Active Torque Vectoring (ATV) System — Quadrifoglio Only The dynamic drive control is used to optimize and balance the drive torque between the wheels of the same axles. The ATV system improves the grip in turns, sending more drive torque to the external wheel. Given that, in a turn, the external wheels of the car travel more than the internal ones and therefore turn faster, sending a higher thrust to the external rear wheel allows for the car to be more stable and to not suffer an "understeer" condition. Understeer occurs when the vehicle is turning less than appropriate for the steering wheel position. warning light located within the door mirror on the side in which the other vehicle was detected. Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) — If Equipped Forward Collision Warning (FCW) — If Equipped Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) System — If Equipped The Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) system uses two radar sensors, located in the rear bumper (one for each side), to detect the presence of other vehicles in the rear side blind spots of your vehicle. Rear Sensor Location The system warns the driver about the presence of other vehicles in the detection area by illuminating the BSM Indicator Light When the engine is started the warning light turns on to signal the driver that the system is active. Sensors The sensors are activated when any forward gear is engaged at a speed higher than 6 mph (10 km/h) or when REVERSE is engaged. The sensors are temporarily deactivated when the vehicle is in PARK. The detection area of the system covers approximately one lane on both sides of the vehicle. This area begins from the door mirror and extends for 19 ft (6 m) towards the rear part of the vehicle. 69 SAFETY When the sensors are active, the system monitors the detection areas on both sides of the vehicle and warns the driver about the possible presence of vehicles in these areas. While driving, the system monitors the detection area from three different points (side, rear and front) to check whether an alert needs to be sent to the driver. The system can detect the presence of a vehicle in one of these three areas. Note: The system does not alert the driver for the presence of fixed object (e.g. safety barriers, poles, walls, etc.). However, in some circumstances, the system may activate in the presence of these objects. This is normal and does not indicate a system malfunction. The system does not alert the driver about the presence of vehicles coming from the opposite direction, in the adjacent lanes. 70 Warning! The Blind Spot Monitoring system is only an aid to help detect objects in the blind spot zones. The BSM system is not designed to detect pedestrians, bicyclists, or animals. Even if your vehicle is equipped with the BSM system, always check your vehicle’s mirrors, glance over your shoulder, and use your turn signal before changing lanes. Failure to do so can result in serious injury or death. Rear View The system detects vehicles coming from the rear part of your vehicle on both sides and entering the rear detection area with a difference in speed of less than 31 mph (50 km/h) with relation to your vehicle. Overtaking Vehicles If another vehicle is overtaken slowly, with a difference in speed of less than 15 mph (25 km/h) and the vehicle stays in the blind spot for approximately 1.5 seconds, the warning light on the door mirror of the corresponding side illuminates. If the difference in speed between the two vehicles is greater than 15 mph (25 km/h), the warning light will not illuminate. Rear Cross Path Detection (RCP) System This system helps the driver during reverse maneuvers in the case of reduced visibility. The RCP system monitors the rear detection areas on both sides of the vehicle to detect objects moving towards the sides of the vehicle, with a minimum speed between 1 mph (1 km/h) and 2 mph (3 km/h) and objects moving at a maximum speed of 21 mph (35 km/h), in areas such as parking lots. The system activation is signaled to the driver by an audible warning. Note: If the sensors are covered by objects or vehicles, the system will not warn the driver. For the system to operate correctly, the rear bumper area where the radar sensors are located must stay free from snow, ice and dirt gathered from the road surface. Do not cover the rear bumper area where the radar sensors are located with any object (e.g. adhesives, bike rack, etc.). Warning! Rear Cross Path Detection (RCP) is not a back up aid system. It is intended to be used to help a driver detect an oncoming vehicle in a parking lot situation. Drivers must be careful when backing up, even when using RCP. Always check carefully behind your vehicle, look behind you, and be sure to check for pedestrians, animals, other vehicles, obstructions, and blind spots before backing up. Failure to do so can result in serious injury or death. Operating Mode The system may be activated/ deactivated via the Information and Entertainment System. To access the function, select the following items on the main menu in sequence: 1. “Settings.” 2. “Safety.” 3. “Blind Spot Alert.” "Blind Spot Alert” Visual Mode When the system is enabled, the warning light within the door mirror on the side of the detected object illuminates. The visual warning on the mirror will blink if the driver activates the turn signals, indicating a lane change. The warning will be fixed if the driver stays in the same lane. "Blind Spot Alert" Function Deactivation When the system is deactivated ("Blind Spot Alert" mode off), the BSM or RCP systems will not emit an audible or a visual warning. The BSM system will store the operating mode running when the engine was stopped. Each time the engine is started, the operating mode stored previously will be recalled and used. Forward Collision Warning (FCW) System — If Equipped This is a driving assistance system which comprises a radar located behind the front bumper and a camera located in the central part of the windshield. General Information This vehicle has systems that operate on radio frequency that comply with Part 15 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules and with Industry Canada Standards RSSGEN/210/220/310. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: Front Bumper Radar Location 1. The device may not cause harmful interference. 2. The device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation of the device. Changes or modifications to any of these systems by other than an authorized service facility could void authorization to use this equipment. Windshield Camera Location In the event of an imminent collision, the system intervenes by automatically 71 SAFETY 72 braking the vehicle to prevent the collision or reduce its effects. The system provides the driver with audible and visual signals through dedicated messages on the instrument cluster display. The system may lightly brake to warn the driver if a potential front end collision is detected (limited braking). Signals and limited braking are intended to allow the driver time to intervene. In situations with the risk of collision, if the system detects no intervention by the driver, it provides automatic braking to help slow the vehicle and mitigate the potential front end collision (automatic braking). If intervention by the driver on the brake pedal is detected, but not deemed sufficient, the system may intervene in order to improve the reaction of the braking system by reducing vehicle speed further (additional assistance in braking stage). The system will intervene automatically in case of imminent collision or impact against a pedestrian crossing the road (speed under 31 mph (50 km/h)). Note: For safety reasons, when the vehicle has stopped, the brake calipers may remain blocked for about two seconds. Make sure to press the brake pedal if the vehicle moves slightly forward. Warning! Forward Collision Warning (FCW) is not intended to avoid a collision on its own, nor can FCW detect every type of potential collision. The driver has the responsibility to avoid a collision by controlling the vehicle via braking and steering. Failure to follow this warning could lead to serious injury or death. Engagement/Disengagement The following functions can be selected in sequence using the Information and Entertainment System: 1. “Settings.” 2. “Safety.” 3. “Forward Collision Warning.” 4. “Mode.” Select from among three operating modes: Warning And Brake: the system (if active), in addition to the visual and audible warnings, provides limited braking, automatic braking, and additional assistance in braking stage where the driver does not brake sufficiently in the event of a potential front end collision. Only Warning: the system (if active), does not provide limited braking, but guarantees automatic braking or additional assistance in braking stage where the driver does not brake at all or not sufficiently enough in the event of a potential front end collision. Disabled: the system does not provide visual and audible warnings, limited braking, automatic braking, or additional assistance in braking stage. The system will therefore provide no indication of a possible collision. Activation/Deactivation The Forward Collision Warning system is activated whenever the engine is started regardless of what is shown on the Information and Entertainment System. Following a deactivation, the system will not warn the driver about the possible collision with the preceding vehicle, regardless of the setting selected with the Information and Entertainment System. Note: Each time the engine is started, the system is activated regardless of what setting was selected when the engine was turned OFF The system is active: Each time the engine is started. In the Information and Entertainment System. When the ignition is in the ON position. The vehicle speed is between 4 mph (7 km/h) and 124 mph (200 km/h). When the front seat belts are fastened. Changing The System Sensitivity The sensitivity of the system can be changed through the Information and Entertainment System menu, choosing from one of the following three options: "Near", "Med" or "Far". Refer to the description in the “Information and Entertainment System Supplement” for how to change the settings. The default setting is "Med". With this setting, the system warns the driver of a possible collision with the vehicle in front when that vehicle is at a standard distance, between that of the other two settings. With the system sensitivity set to "Far", the system will warn the driver of a possible collision with the vehicle in front when that vehicle is at a greater distance, thus providing the possibility of acting on the brakes more lightly and gradually. This setting provides the drivers with the maximum possible reaction time to prevent a potential collision. With the option set to "Near", the system will alert the driver of a possible collision with the vehicle in front when that vehicle is close. This setting offers the driver a lower reaction time compared to the "Med" and "Far" settings, in the event of a potential collision, but permits more dynamic driving of the vehicle. The system sensitivity setting is kept in the memory when the engine is turned OFF. System Limited Operation Signal If a dedicated message is displayed, a condition limiting the system operation may have occurred. The possible reasons of this limitation are if something is blocking the camera view, or a fault is present. If an obstruction is signaled, clean the area of the windshield. Although the vehicle can still be driven in normal conditions, the system may be not completely available. When the conditions limiting the system functions end, this will go back to normal and complete operation. Should the fault persist, contact your authorized dealer. System Failure Signaling If the system turns off and a dedicated message is shown on the display, it means that there is a fault with the system. In this case, it is still possible to drive the vehicle, but you are advised to contact you authorized dealer as soon as possible. Radar Indication Not Available If conditions are such that the radar cannot detect obstacles correctly, the system is deactivated and a dedicated message appears on the display. This generally occurs in the event of poor visibility, such as when it is snowing or raining heavily. The function of this system can also be temporarily reduced due to obstructions such as mud, dirt or ice on the bumper. In such cases, a dedicated message will be shown on the display and the system will be deactivated. This message can sometimes appear in conditions of high reflectivity (e.g. tunnels with reflective tiles or ice or snow). When the conditions limiting the system functions end, it will go back to normal and complete operation. In certain cases, this dedicated message could be displayed when the radar is not detecting any vehicles or objects within its view range. If atmospheric conditions are not the reason behind this message, check if the sensor is dirty. It could be necessary to clean or remove any obstructions in the area. 73 SAFETY If the message appears frequently, even in the absence of atmospheric conditions such as snow, rain, mud or other obstructions, contact your authorized dealer for a sensor alignment check. In the absence of visible obstructions, manually removing the decorative cover trim and cleaning the radar surface could be required. Have this operation performed at your authorized dealer. Note: It is recommended that you do not install devices, accessories, or aerodynamic attachments in front of the sensor or darken it in any way, as this can compromise the correct functioning of the system. Frontal Collision Alarm With Active Braking If this function is selected, the brakes are operated to reduce the speed of the vehicle in the event of potential collision. This function applies an additional braking pressure if the braking pressure applied by the driver does not suffice to prevent potential collision. The function is active with speed above 4 mph (7 km/h). 74 Driving In Special Conditions In certain driving conditions, system intervention might be unexpected or delayed. The driver must therefore be very careful, keeping control of the vehicle. Driving close to a bend. The vehicle ahead is leaving a roundabout. Vehicles with small dimensions and/or not aligned in the driving lane. Lane change by other vehicles. Vehicles traveling at right angles to the vehicle. Note: In particularly complex traffic conditions, the driver can deactivate the system manually through the Information and Entertainment System. Driving Close To A Bend When entering or leaving a wide bend, the system may detect a vehicle in front you, but not in the same driving lane. In cases such as these, the system may intervene. Driving Around Wide Curves The Vehicle Ahead Is Leaving A Roundabout On a roundabout, the system could intervene if it detects a vehicle ahead which is leaving the roundabout. Driving In Roundabouts Vehicles With Small Dimensions And/Or Not Aligned In The Driving Lane The system cannot detect vehicles in front of you but outside the range of the radar sensor and may therefore not react in the presence of small vehicles, such as bicycles or motorcycles. Warning! Other Vehicles Changing Lanes Vehicles Traveling At Right Angles To The Vehicle The system may temporarily react to a vehicle that is passing through the radar sensor’s operating range at right angles. Driving Near Small Vehicles Lane Change By Other Vehicles Vehicles suddenly changing lanes to enter the same lane as your vehicle within the operating range of the radar sensor, may cause the system to intervene. Other Vehicle Passing Through Radar Range The system has not been designed to prevent impacts and cannot detect possible conditions leading to an accident in advance. Failure to take into account this warning may lead to serious or fatal injuries. The system may activate, assessing the trajectory of the vehicle, for the presence of reflecting metal objects different from other vehicles, such as safety barriers, road signs, barriers before parking lots, tollgates, level crossings, gates, railways, objects near road constructions sites or higher than the vehicle (e.g. a fly-over). In the same way, the system may intervene inside multi-story parking lots or tunnels, or due to a glare on the road surface. These possible activations are a consequence of the real driving scenario coverage by the system and must not be regarded as faults. The system has been designed for road use only. If the vehicle is driven on a track, the system must be deactivated to avoid unnecessary warnings. Automatic deactivation is signaled by the dedicated warning light/symbol switching on in the instrument panel (refer to the instructions in the "Warning Lights And Messages On The Instrument Panel" in "Getting To Know Your Instrument Panel" for further information). 75 SAFETY 76 Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) This vehicle is equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) that sends the inflation pressure information of each tire to the control unit, and will signal the driver in the event of insufficient tire pressure. Tire pressure will vary with temperature by approximately 1 psi (7 kPa) for every 12°F (6.5°C). This means that when the outside temperature decreases, the tire pressure will also decrease. Tire pressure should always be set based on cold inflation tire pressure. This is defined as the tire pressure after the vehicle has not been driven for at least three hours, or driven less than 1 mile (1.6 km) after a three hour period. The cold tire inflation pressure must not exceed the maximum inflation pressure molded into the tire sidewall. Refer to “Tires” in “Servicing And Maintenance” for information on how to properly inflate the vehicle’s tires. The tire pressure will also increase as the vehicle is driven. This is normal, and there should be no adjustment for this increased pressure. The TPMS will signal the driver if pressure falls below the warning limit for any reason, including the effects of low temperature and normal loss of pressure from the tire. The TPMS will stop indicating insufficient tire pressure when pressure is equal to or greater than the prescribed cold inflation level. Therefore, if insufficient tire ) warning pressure is indicated by the ( light displaying in the instrument cluster, increase the inflation pressure up to the prescribed cold inflation value. The system will automatically update, and the “Tire Pressure Monitoring Telltale Light” will turn off once the system receives the updated tire pressures. The vehicle may need to be driven for up to 20 minutes above 15 mph (24 km/h) in order for the TPMS to receive this information. Operating Example For example, your vehicle may have a recommended cold (parked for more than three hours) placard pressure of 33 psi (227 kPa). If the ambient temperature is 68°F (20°C), and the measured tire pressure is 28 psi (193 kPa), a temperature drop to 20°F (-7°C) will decrease the tire pressure to approximately 24 psi (165 kPa). This tire pressure is low enough to turn on the “Tire Pressure Monitoring Warning Light.” Driving the vehicle may cause the tire pressure to rise to approximately 28 psi (193 kPa), but the “Tire Pressure Monitoring Telltale Light” will still be on. In this situation, the “Tire Pressure Monitoring Warning Light” will turn off only after the tires are inflated to the vehicle’s recommended cold placard pressure value. 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. The TPM sensor is not designed for use on aftermarket wheels and may contribute to a poor overall system performance or sensor damage. Customers are encouraged to use OEM wheels to assure proper TPM feature operation. Using aftermarket tire sealants may cause the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) sensor to become inoperable. After using an aftermarket tire sealant it is recommended that you take your vehicle to your authorized dealer to have your sensor function checked. After inspecting or adjusting the tire pressure always reinstall the valve stem cap. This will prevent moisture and dirt from entering the valve stem, which could damage the TPMS sensor. INSUFFICIENT TIRE PRESSURE INDICATION If an insufficient pressure value is detected on one or more tires, the warning light in the instrument cluster will display alongside the dedicated messages, the system will highlight the tire or tires with insufficient pressure graphically, and an acoustic signal will be emitted. In this case, stop the vehicle, check the inflation pressure of each tire, and inflate the necessary tire or tires to the correct cold inflation pressure value, shown on the display or in the dedicated TPMS menu. TPMS TEMPORARILY DISABLED TPMS Check Message When a system fault is detected, the “Tire Pressure Monitoring Telltale Light” will flash on and off for 75 seconds, and then remain on solid. The system fault will also sound a chime. If the ignition is cycled, this sequence will repeat, provided that the system fault still exists. The “Tire Pressure Monitoring Telltale Light” will turn off when the fault condition no longer exists. A system fault can occur due to any of the following: Jamming due to electronic devices or driving next to facilities emitting the same radio frequencies as the TPMS sensors. Installing some form of aftermarket window tinting that affects radio wave signals. Accumulation of snow or ice around the wheels or wheel housings. Using tire chains on the vehicle. Using wheels/tires not equipped with TPMS sensors. After the punctured tire has been repaired with the original tire sealant contained in the Tire Repair Kit, the previous condition must be restored so warning light is off during that the normal driving. TPMS Deactivation The TPMS can be deactivated by replacing all four wheel and tire assemblies (road tires) with wheel and tire assemblies that do not have TPMS Sensors, such as when installing winter wheel and tire assemblies on your vehicle. To deactivate the TPMS, first replace all four wheel and tire assemblies (road tires) with tires not equipped with Tire Pressure Monitoring (TPM) Sensors. Then, drive the vehicle for 20 minutes above 15 mph (24 km/h). The TPMS will chime, the "TPM Telltale Light" will flash on and off for 75 seconds and then remain on. The instrument cluster will display the “SERVICE TPM SYSTEM” message and then display dashes (--) in place of the pressure values. Beginning with the next ignition switch cycle, the TPMS will no longer chime or display the “SERVICE TPM SYSTEM” message in the instrument cluster. Instead, dashes (--) will remain in place of the pressure values. To reactivate the TPMS, replace all four wheel and tire assemblies (road tires) with tires equipped with TPM sensors. Then, drive the vehicle for up to 20 minutes above 15 mph (24 km/h). The TPMS will chime, the "TPM Telltale Light" will flash on and off for 75 seconds and then turn off. The instrument cluster will display the “SERVICE TPM SYSTEM” message and then display pressure values in place of the dashes. On the next ignition switch cycle the "SERVICE TPM SYSTEM" message will no longer be displayed, as long as no system fault exists. Note: The TPMS is not intended to replace normal tire care and maintenance, or to provide warning of a tire failure or condition. The TPMS should not be used as a tire pressure gauge while adjusting your tire pressure. 77 SAFETY Driving on a significantly underinflated tire will cause the tire to overheat, and can lead to tire failure. Underinflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the vehicle’s handling and stopping ability. The TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the driver’s responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure using an accurate tire pressure gauge, even if underinflation has not reached the level to trigger illumination of the “Tire Pressure Monitoring Telltale Light”. Seasonal temperature changes will affect tire pressure, and the TPMS will monitor the actual tire pressure in the tire. General Information The following regulatory statement applies to all radio frequency (RF) devices equipped in this vehicle: This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC rules and RSS-210 of Industry Canada. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference. (2) This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. Note: Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment. OCCUPANT RESTRAINT SYSTEMS Some of the most important safety features in your vehicle are the restraint systems: Occupant Restraint Systems Features Seat Belt Systems Supplemental Restraint Systems (SRS) Air Bags Child Restraints Some of the safety features described in this section may be standard equipment on some models, or may be optional equipment on others. If you are not sure, ask your authorized dealer. Important Safety Precautions Please pay close attention to the information in this section. It tells you how to use your restraint system properly, to keep you and your passengers as safe as possible. Here are some simple steps you can take to minimize the risk of harm from a deploying air bag: 1. Children 12 years old and under should always ride buckled up in a vehicle with a rear seat. 78 2. If a child from 2 to 12 years old (not in a rear-facing child restraint) must ride in the front passenger seat, move the seat as far back as possible and use the proper child restraint (refer to “Child Restraints” in this section for further information). 3. Children that are not big enough to wear the vehicle seat belt properly (refer to “Child Restraints” in this section for further information) should be secured in a vehicle with a rear seat in child restraints or belt-positioning booster seats. Older children who do not use child restraints or belt-positioning booster seats should ride properly buckled up in a vehicle with a rear seat. 4. Never allow children to slide the shoulder belt behind them or under their arm. 5. You should read the instructions provided with your child restraint to make sure that you are using it properly. 6. All occupants should always wear their lap and shoulder belts properly. 7. The driver and front passenger seats should be moved back as far as practical to allow the front air bags room to inflate. 8. Do not lean against the door or window. If your vehicle has side air bags, and deployment occurs, the side air bags will inflate forcefully into the space between occupants and the door and occupants could be injured. 9. If the air bag system in this vehicle needs to be modified to accommodate a disabled person, refer to the “Customer Assistance” section for customer service contact information. Warning! Never place a rear-facing child restraint in front of an air bag. A deploying passenger front air bag can cause death or serious injury to a child 12 years or younger, including a child in a rear-facing child restraint. Only use a rear-facing child restraint in a vehicle with a rear seat. Seat Belt Systems Buckle up even though you are an excellent driver, even on short trips. Someone on the road may be a poor driver and could cause a collision that includes you. This can happen far away from home or on your own street. Research has shown that seat belts save lives, and they can reduce the seriousness of injuries in a collision. Some of the worst injuries happen when people are thrown from the vehicle. Seat belts reduce the possibility of ejection and the risk of injury caused by striking the inside of the vehicle. Everyone in a motor vehicle should be belted at all times. Enhanced Seat Belt Use Reminder System (BeltAlert) Driver and Passenger BeltAlert (if equipped) – No Deactivation BeltAlert is a feature intended to remind the driver and outboard front seat passenger (if equipped with outboard front passenger seat BeltAlert) to buckle their seat belts. The Belt Alert feature is active whenever the ignition switch is in the START or ON/RUN position. Initial Indication If the driver is unbuckled when the ignition switch is first in the START or ON/RUN position, a chime will signal for a few seconds. If the driver or outboard front seat passenger (if equipped with outboard front passenger seat BeltAlert) is unbuckled when the ignition switch is first in the START or ON/RUN position the Seat Belt Reminder Light will turn on 79 SAFETY and remain on until both outboard front seat belts are buckled. The outboard front passenger seat BeltAlert is not active when an outboard front passenger seat is unoccupied. BeltAlert Warning Sequence The BeltAlert warning sequence is activated when the vehicle is moving above a specified vehicle speed range and the driver or outboard front seat passenger is unbuckled (if equipped with outboard front passenger seat BeltAlert) (the outboard front passenger seat BeltAlert is not active when the outboard front passenger seat is unoccupied). The BeltAlert warning sequence starts by blinking the Seat Belt Reminder Light and sounding an intermittent chime. Once the BeltAlert warning sequence has completed, the Seat Belt Reminder Light will remain on until the seat belts are buckled. The BeltAlert warning sequence may repeat based on vehicle speed until the driver and occupied outboard front seat passenger seat belts are buckled. The driver should instruct all occupants to buckle their seat belts. 80 Change of Status If the driver or outboard front seat passenger (if equipped with outboard front passenger seat BeltAlert) unbuckles their seat belt while the vehicle is traveling, the BeltAlert warning sequence will begin until the seat belts are buckled again. The outboard front passenger seat BeltAlert is not active when the outboard front passenger seat is unoccupied. BeltAlert may be triggered when an animal or other items are placed on the outboard front passenger seat or when the seat is folded flat (if equipped). It is recommended that pets be restrained in the rear seat (if equipped) in pet harnesses or pet carriers that are secured by seat belts, and cargo is properly stowed. Lap/Shoulder Belts All seating positions in your vehicle are equipped with lap/shoulder belts. The seat belt webbing retractor will lock only during very sudden stops or collisions. This feature allows the shoulder part of the seat belt to move freely with you under normal conditions. However, in a collision the seat belt will lock and reduce your risk of striking the inside of the vehicle or being thrown out of the vehicle. 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 belt even though you have air bags. 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. It is 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 seriously 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. Occupants, including the driver, should always wear their seat belts whether or not an air bag is also provided at their seating position to minimize the risk of severe injury or death in the event of a crash. Wearing your seat belt incorrectly could make your injuries in a collision much worse. You might suffer internal injuries, or you could even slide out of the seat belt. Follow these instructions to wear your seat belt safely and to keep your passengers safe, too. Two people should never be belted into a single seat belt. People belted together can crash into one another in a collision, hurting one another badly. Never use a lap/shoulder belt or a lap belt for more than one person, no matter what their size. Warning! A lap belt worn too high can increase the risk of injury in a collision. The seat belt forces won’t be at the strong hip and pelvic bones, but across your abdomen. Always wear the lap part of your seat belt as low as possible and keep it snug. A twisted seat belt may not protect you properly. In a collision, it could even cut into you. Be sure the seat belt is flat against your body, without twists. If you can’t straighten a seat belt in your vehicle, take it to your authorized dealer immediately and have it fixed. A seat belt that is buckled into the wrong buckle will not protect you properly. The lap portion could ride too high on your body, possibly causing internal injuries. Always buckle your seat belt into the buckle nearest you. A seat belt that is too loose will not protect you properly. In a sudden stop, you could move too far forward, increasing the possibility of injury. Wear your seat belt snugly. A seat belt that is worn under your arm is dangerous. Your body could strike the inside surfaces of the vehicle in a collision, increasing head and neck injury. A seat belt worn under the arm can cause internal injuries. Ribs aren’t as strong as shoulder bones. Wear the seat belt over your shoulder so that your strongest bones will take the force in a collision. 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 frayed or torn seat belt could rip apart in a collision and leave you with no protection. Inspect the seat belt system periodically, checking for cuts, frays, or loose parts. Damaged parts must be replaced immediately. Do not disassemble or modify the seat belt system. Seat belt assemblies must be replaced after a collision. Lap/Shoulder Belt Operating Instructions 1. Enter the vehicle and close the door. Sit back and adjust the seat. 2. The seat belt latch plate is above the back of the front seat, and next to your arm in the rear seat (for vehicles equipped with a rear seat). 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 your lap. 3. When the seat belt is long enough to fit, insert the latch plate into the buckle until you hear a “click.” Seat Belt Latch Plate Inserted Into Seat Belt Buckle 4. Position the lap belt so that it is snug and lies low across your hips, below your abdomen. To remove slack in the lap belt portion, pull up on the shoulder belt. To loosen the lap belt if it is too tight, tilt the latch plate and pull on the lap belt. A snug seat belt reduces the risk of sliding under the seat belt in a collision. 81 SAFETY 5. Position the shoulder belt across the shoulder and chest with minimal, if any slack so that it is comfortable and not resting on your neck. The retractor will withdraw any slack in the shoulder belt. Second Row Center Seat Belt Operating Instructions 6. To release the seat belt, push the red button on the buckle. The seat belt will automatically retract to its stowed position. If necessary, slide the latch plate down the webbing to allow the seat belt to retract fully. 1. Remove the mini-latch plate and regular latch plate from its stowed position in the right rear side trim panel. Lap/Shoulder Belt Untwisting Procedure 2. Grasp the mini-latch plate and pull the seat belt over the seat. 3. Route the shoulder belt to the inside of the right head restraint. Use the following procedure to untwist a twisted lap/shoulder belt. 1. Position the latch plate as close as possible to the anchor point. 4. When the seat belt is long enough to fit, insert the mini-latch plate into the mini-buckle until you hear a “click.” 2. At about 6 to 12 inches (15 to 30 cm) above the latch plate, grasp and twist the seat belt webbing 180 degrees to create a fold that begins immediately above the latch plate. 5. Sit back in seat. Slide the regular latch plate up the webbing as far as necessary to allow the seat belt to go around your lap. 3. Slide the latch plate upward over the folded webbing. The folded webbing must enter the slot at the top of the latch plate. 4. Continue to slide the latch plate up until it clears the folded webbing and the seat belt is no longer twisted. 82 buckle, which allows the seat belt to detach from the lower anchor when the seat is folded. The mini-latch plate and regular latch plate can then be stored out of the way in the parcel tray for added convenience to open up utilization of the storage areas behind the front seats when the seat is not occupied. Second Row Seat Belts 1 — Seat Belt Buckle 2 — Seat Belt Latch Plate 3 — Mini Latch Plate 4 — Mini Seat Belt Buckle 5 — Mini Buckle Release The second row center seat belt features a seat belt with a mini-latch plate and 6. When the seat belt is long enough to fit, insert the latch plate into the buckle until you hear a “click.” 7. Position the lap belt so that it is snug and lies low across your hips, below your abdomen. To remove slack in the lap belt portion, pull up on the shoulder belt. To loosen the lap belt if it is too tight, pull on the lap belt. A snug seat belt reduces the risk of sliding under the seat belt in a collision. 8. 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 seat belt. 9. To release the seat belt, push the red button on the buckle. 10. To disengage the mini-latch plate from the mini-buckle for storage, insert the regular latch plate into the black button on the top of the mini-buckle. The seat belt will automatically retract to its stowed position. If necessary, slide the latch plate down the webbing to allow the seat belt to retract fully. Insert the mini-latch plate and regular latch plate into its stowed position. Warning! If the mini-latch plate and mini-buckle are not properly connected when the seat belt is used by an occupant, the seat belt will not be able to provide proper restraint and will increase the risk of injury in a collision. When reattaching the mini-latch plate and mini-buckle, ensure the seat belt webbing is not twisted. If the webbing is twisted, follow the preceding procedure to detach the mini-latch plate and mini-buckle, untwist the webbing, and reattach the mini-latch plate and mini-buckle. Seat Belts And Pregnant Women Seat belts must be worn by all occupants including pregnant women: the risk of injury in the event of an accident is reduced for the mother and the unborn child if they are wearing a seat belt. Position the lap belt snug and low below the abdomen and across the strong bones of the hips. Place the shoulder belt across the chest and away from the neck. Never place the shoulder belt behind the back or under the arm. Seat Belt Pretensioner The front seat belt system is equipped with pretensioning devices that are designed to remove slack from the seat belt in the event of a collision. These devices may improve the performance of the seat belt by removing slack from the seat belt early in a collision. Pretensioners work for all size occupants, including those in child restraints. Note: Pregnant Women And Seat Belts These devices are not a substitute for proper seat belt placement by the occupant. The seat belt still must be worn snugly and positioned properly. The pretensioners are triggered by the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC). Like the air bags, the pretensioners are single use items. A deployed pretensioner or a deployed air bag must be replaced immediately. 83 SAFETY Energy Management Feature The front seat belt system is equipped with an Energy Management feature that may help further reduce the risk of injury in the event of a collision. The seat belt system has a retractor assembly that is designed to release webbing in a controlled manner. Switchable Automatic Locking Retractors (ALR) The seat belts in the passenger seating positions are equipped with a Switchable Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) which is used to secure a child restraint system. For additional information, refer to “Installing Child Restraints Using The Vehicle Seat Belt” under the “Child Restraints” section of this manual. The figure below illustrates the locking feature for each seating position. If the passenger seating position is equipped with an ALR and is being used for normal usage, only pull the seat belt webbing out far enough to comfortably wrap around the occupant’s mid-section so as to not activate the ALR. If the ALR is activated, you will hear a clicking sound as the seat belt retracts. Allow the webbing to retract completely in this case and then carefully pull out only the amount of webbing necessary to comfortably wrap around the occupant’s mid-section. Slide the latch plate into the buckle until you hear a "click." In Automatic Locking Mode, the shoulder belt is automatically pre-locked. The seat belt will still retract to remove any slack in the shoulder belt. Use the Automatic Locking Mode anytime a child restraint is installed in a seating position that has a seat belt with this feature. Children 12 years old and under should always be properly restrained in a vehicle with a rear seat. Only use a rear-facing child restraint in a vehicle with a rear seat. How To Engage The Automatic Locking Mode 1. Buckle the combination lap and shoulder belt. 2. Grasp the shoulder portion and pull downward until the entire seat belt is extracted. 3. Allow the seat belt to retract. As the seat belt retracts, you will hear a clicking sound. This indicates the seat belt is now in the Automatic Locking Mode. How To Disengage The Automatic Locking Mode Unbuckle the combination lap/shoulder belt and allow it to retract completely to disengage the Automatic Locking Mode and activate the vehicle sensitive (emergency) locking mode. Warning! Warning! ALR — Switchable Automatic Locking Retractor 84 Never place a rear-facing child restraint in front of an air bag. A deploying passenger front air bag can cause death or serious injury to a child 12 years or younger, including a child in a rear-facing child restraint. The seat belt assembly must be replaced if the switchable Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) feature or any other seat belt function is not working properly when checked according to the procedures in the Service Manual. Failure to replace the seat belt assembly could increase the risk of injury in collisions. Do not use the Automatic Locking Mode to restrain occupants who are wearing the seat belt or children who are using booster seats. The locked mode is only used to install rear-facing or forward-facing child restraints that have a harness for restraining the child. Knee Impact Bolsters Driver and Front Passenger Air Bags Seat Belt Buckle Switch Supplemental Side Air Bags Supplemental Knee Air Bags Front and Side Impact Sensors Seat Belt Pretensioners Supplemental Restraint Systems (SRS) Some of the safety features described in this section may be standard equipment on some models, or may be optional equipment on others. If you are not sure, ask your authorized dealer. The air bag system must be ready to protect you in a collision. The Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) monitors the internal circuits and interconnecting wiring associated with the electrical Air Bag System Components. Your vehicle may be equipped with the following Air Bag System Components: Air Bag System Components Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) Air Bag Warning Light Steering Wheel and Column Instrument Panel Seat Track Position Sensors Air Bag Warning Light The ORC monitors the readiness of the electronic parts of the air bag system whenever the ignition switch is in the START or ON/RUN position. If the ignition switch is in the OFF position or in the ACC position, the air bag system is not on and the air bags will not inflate. The ORC contains a backup power supply system that may deploy the air bag system even if the battery loses power or it becomes disconnected prior to deployment. The ORC turns on the Air Bag Warning Light in the instrument panel for approximately four to eight seconds for a self-check when the ignition switch is first in the ON/RUN position. After the self-check, the Air Bag Warning Light will turn off. If the ORC detects a malfunction in any part of the system, it turns on the Air Bag Warning Light, either momentarily or continuously. A single chime will sound to alert you if the light comes on again after initial startup. The ORC also includes diagnostics that will illuminate the instrument panel Air Bag Warning Light if a malfunction is detected that could affect the air bag system. The diagnostics also record the nature of the malfunction. While the air bag system is designed to be maintenance free, if any of the following occurs, have an authorized dealer service the air bag system immediately. The Air Bag Warning Light does not come on during the four to eight seconds when the ignition switch is first in the ON/RUN position. The Air Bag Warning Light remains on after the four to eight-second interval. The Air Bag Warning Light comes on intermittently or remains on while driving. Note: If the speedometer, tachometer, or any engine related gauges are not working, the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) may also be disabled. In this condition the air bags may not be ready to inflate for your protection. Have an authorized dealer service the air bag system immediately. 85 SAFETY Front Air Bags Warning! Ignoring the Air Bag Warning Light in your instrument panel could mean you won’t have the air bag system to protect you in a collision. If the light does not come on as a bulb check when the ignition is first turned on, stays on after you start the vehicle, or if it comes on as you drive, have an authorized dealer service the air bag system immediately. This vehicle has front air bags and lap/shoulder belts for both the driver and front passenger. The front air bags are a supplement to the seat belt restraint systems. The driver front air bag is mounted in the center of the steering wheel. The passenger front air bag is mounted in the instrument panel, above the glove compartment. The words “SRS AIRBAG” or “AIRBAG” are embossed on the air bag covers. Passenger Air Bag Redundant Air Bag Warning Light If a fault with the Air Bag Warning Light is detected, which could affect the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), the Redundant Air Bag Warning Light will illuminate on the instrument panel. The Redundant Air Bag Warning Light will stay on until the fault is cleared. In addition, a single chime will sound to alert you that the Redundant Air Bag Warning Light has come on and a fault has been detected. If the Redundant Air Bag Warning Light comes on intermittently or remains on while driving have an authorized dealer service the vehicle immediately. For additional information regarding the Redundant Air Bag Warning Light refer to “Getting To Know Your Instrument Panel” section of this manual. 86 Front Air Bag/Knee Bolster Locations Driver Air Bag 1 — Driver And Passenger Front Air Bags 2 — Driver And Passenger Knee Impact Bolsters/Supplemental Knee Air Bags Warning! Being too close to the steering wheel or instrument panel during 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. Never place a rear-facing child restraint in front of an air bag. A deploying passenger front air bag can cause death or serious injury to a child 12 years or younger, including a child in a rear-facing child restraint. Only use a rear-facing child restraint in a vehicle with a rear seat. Driver And Passenger Front Air Bag Features The Advanced Front Air Bag system has multistage driver and front passenger air bags. This system provides output appropriate to the severity and type of collision as determined by the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC), which may receive information from the front impact sensors (if equipped) or other system components. The first stage inflator is triggered immediately during an impact that requires air bag deployment. A low energy output is used in less severe collisions. A higher energy output is used for more severe collisions. This vehicle may be equipped with a driver and/or front passenger seat belt buckle switch that detects whether the driver or front passenger seat belt is buckled. The seat belt buckle switch may adjust the inflation rate of the Advanced Front Air Bags. This vehicle may be equipped with driver and/or front passenger seat track position sensors that may adjust the inflation rate of the Advanced Front Air Bags based upon seat position. Warning! No objects should be placed over or near the air bag on the instrument panel or steering wheel because any such objects could cause harm if the vehicle is in a collision severe enough to cause the air bag to inflate. Do not put anything on or around the air bag covers or attempt to open them manually. You may damage the air bags and you could be injured because the air bags may no longer be functional. The protective covers for the air bag cushions are designed to open only when the air bags are inflating. 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, air bags won’t deploy at all. Always wear your seat belts even though you have air bags. Front Air Bag Operation Front Air Bags are designed to provide additional protection by supplementing the seat belts. Front air bags are not expected to reduce the risk of injury in rear, side, or rollover collisions. The front air bags will not deploy in all frontal collisions, including some that may produce substantial vehicle damage — for example, some pole collisions, truck underrides, and angle offset collisions. On the other hand, depending on the type and location of impact, front air bags may deploy in crashes with little vehicle front-end damage but that produce a severe initial deceleration. Because air bag sensors measure vehicle deceleration over time, vehicle speed and damage by themselves are not good indicators of whether or not an air bag should have deployed. Seat belts are necessary for your protection in all collisions, and also are needed to help keep you in position, away from an inflating air bag. 87 SAFETY When the ORC detects a collision requiring the front air bags, it signals the inflator units. A large quantity of non-toxic gas is generated to inflate the front air bags. The steering wheel hub trim cover and the upper right side of the instrument panel separate and fold out of the way as the air bags inflate to their full size. The front air bags fully inflate in less time than it takes to blink your eyes. The front air bags then quickly deflate while helping to restrain the driver and front passenger. Supplemental Driver And Front Passenger Knee Air Bags This vehicle is equipped with a Supplemental Driver Knee Air Bag mounted in the instrument panel below the steering column and a Supplemental Passenger Knee Air Bag mounted in the instrument panel below the glove compartment. The Supplemental Knee Air Bags provide enhanced protection during a frontal impact by working together with the seat belts, pretensioners, and front air bags. Knee Impact Bolsters The Knee Impact Bolsters help protect the knees of the driver and front passenger, and position the front occupants for improved interaction with the front air bags. Warning! Do not drill, cut, or tamper with the knee impact bolsters in any way. Do not mount any accessories to the knee impact bolsters such as alarm lights, stereos, citizen band radios, etc. 88 Driver Knee Air Bag Front Passenger Knee Air Bag Supplemental Side Air Bags Supplemental Seat-Mounted Side Air Bags (SABs) This vehicle is equipped with Supplemental Seat-Mounted Side Air Bags (SABs). Supplemental Seat-Mounted Side Air Bags (SABs) are located in the outboard side of the front seats. The SABs are marked with a “SRS AIRBAG” or “AIRBAG” label sewn into the outboard side of the seats. The SABs may help to reduce the risk of occupant injury during certain side impacts, in addition to the injury reduction potential provided by the seat belts and body structure. Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtains (SABICs) This vehicle is equipped with Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtains (SABICs). Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtains (SABICs) are located above the side windows. The trim covering the SABICs is labeled “SRS AIRBAG” or “AIRBAG.” Front Supplemental Seat-Mounted Side Air Bag When the SAB deploys, it opens the seam on the outboard side of the seatback’s trim cover. The inflating SAB deploys through the seat seam into the space between the occupant and the door. The SAB moves at a very high speed and with such a high force that it could injure occupants if they are not seated properly, or if items are positioned in the area where the SAB inflates. Children are at an even greater risk of injury from a deploying air bag. Warning! Do not use accessory seat covers or place objects between you and the Side Air Bags; the performance could be adversely affected and/or objects could be pushed into you, causing serious injury. out of the way and covers the window. The SABICs inflate with enough force to injure occupants if they are not belted and seated properly, or if items are positioned in the area where the SABICs inflate. Children are at an even greater risk of injury from a deploying air bag. The SABICs may help reduce the risk of partial or complete ejection of vehicle occupants through side windows in certain side impact events. Warning! Supplemental Side Air Bag Inflatable Curtain (SABIC) Location SABICs may help reduce the risk of head and other injuries to front and rear seat outboard occupants in certain side impacts, in addition to the injury reduction potential provided by the seat belts and body structure. The SABIC deploys downward, covering the side windows. An inflating SABIC pushes the outside edge of the headliner Do not mount equipment, or stack luggage or other cargo up high enough to block the deployment of the SABICs. The trim covering above the side windows where the SABIC and its deployment path are located should remain free from any obstructions. In order for the SABICs to work as intended, do not install any accessory items in your vehicle which could alter the roof. Do not add an aftermarket sunroof to your vehicle. Do not add roof racks that require permanent attachments (bolts or screws) for installation on the vehicle roof. Do not drill into the roof of the vehicle for any reason. 89 SAFETY 90 Side Impacts The Side Air Bags are designed to activate in certain side impacts. The Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) determines whether the deployment of the Side Air Bags in a particular impact event is appropriate, based on the severity and type of collision. The side impact sensors aid the ORC in determining the appropriate response to impact events. The system is calibrated to deploy the Side Air Bags on the impact side of the vehicle during impacts that require Side Air Bag occupant protection. In side impacts, the Side Air Bags deploy independently; a left side impact deploys the left Side Air Bags only and a right-side impact deploys the right Side Air Bags only. Vehicle damage by itself is not a good indicator of whether or not Side Air Bags should have deployed. The Side Air Bags will not deploy in all side collisions, including some collisions at certain angles, or some side collisions that do not impact the area of the passenger compartment. The Side Air Bags may deploy during angled or offset frontal collisions where the front air bags deploy. Side Air Bags are a supplement to the seat belt restraint system. Side Air Bags deploy in less time than it takes to blink your eyes. Warning! Occupants, including children, who are up against or very close to Side Air Bags can be seriously injured or killed. Occupants, including children, should never lean on or sleep against the door, side windows, or area where the side air bags inflate, even if they are in an infant or child restraint. Seat belts (and child restraints where appropriate) are necessary for your protection in all collisions. They also help keep you in position, away from an inflating Side Air Bag. To get the best protection from the Side Air Bags, occupants must wear their seat belts properly and sit upright with their backs against the seats. Children must be properly restrained in a child restraint or booster seat that is appropriate for the size of the child. Warning! Side Air Bags need room to inflate. Do not lean against the door or window. Sit upright in the center of the seat. Being too close to the Side Air Bags during deployment could cause you to be severely injured or killed. Relying on the Side Air Bags alone could lead to more severe injuries in a collision. The Side Air Bags work with your seat belt to restrain you properly. In some collisions, Side Air Bags won’t deploy at all. Always wear your seat belt even though you have Side Air Bags. Note: Air bag covers may not be obvious in the interior trim, but they will open during air bag deployment. Rollover Events Side Air Bags are designed to activate in certain rollover events. The ORC determines whether the deployment of the Side Air Bags in a particular rollover event is appropriate, based on the severity and type of collision. Vehicle damage by itself is not a good indicator of whether or not Side Air Bags should have deployed. The Side Air Bags will not deploy in all rollover events. The rollover sensing system determines if a rollover event may be in progress and whether deployment is appropriate. In the event the vehicle experiences a rollover or near rollover event, and deployment of the Side Air Bags is appropriate, the rollover sensing system will also deploy the seat belt pretensioners on both sides of the vehicle. The SABICs may help reduce the risk of partial or complete ejection of vehicle occupants through side windows in certain rollover or side impact events. If A Deployment Occurs Air Bag System Components Note: Note: Front and/or side air bags will not deploy in all collisions. This does not mean something is wrong with the air bag system. If you do have a collision which deploys the air bags, any or all of the following may occur: The Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) monitors the internal circuits and interconnecting wiring associated with electrical Air Bag System Components listed below: Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) Air Bag Warning Light Steering Wheel and Column Instrument Panel Knee Impact Bolsters Driver and Front Passenger Air Bags Seat Belt Buckle Switch Supplemental Side Air Bags Supplemental Knee Air Bags Front and Side Impact Sensors Seat Belt Pretensioners Seat Track Position Sensors The front air bags are designed to deflate immediately after deployment. The air bag material may sometimes cause abrasions and/or skin reddening to the occupants as the air bags deploy and unfold. The abrasions are similar to friction rope burns or those you might get sliding along a carpet or gymnasium floor. They are not caused by contact with chemicals. They are not permanent and normally heal quickly. However, if you haven’t healed significantly within a few days, or if you have any blistering, see your doctor immediately. As the air bags deflate, you may see some smoke-like particles. The particles are a normal by-product of the process that generates the non-toxic gas used for air bag inflation. These airborne particles may irritate the skin, eyes, nose, or throat. If you have skin or eye irritation, rinse the area with cool water. For nose or throat irritation, move to fresh air. If the irritation continues, see your doctor. If these particles settle on your clothing, follow the garment manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning. 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. Warning! Deployed air bags and seat belt pretensioners cannot protect you in another collision. Have the air bags, seat belt pretensioners, and the seat belt retractor assemblies replaced by an authorized dealer immediately. Also, have the Occupant Restraint Controller System serviced as well. Note: Air bag covers may not be obvious in the interior trim, but they will open during air bag deployment. After any collision, the vehicle should be taken to an authorized dealer immediately. Enhanced Accident Response System In the event of an impact, if the communication network remains intact, and the power remains intact, depending on the nature of the event, the ORC will determine whether to have the Enhanced 91 SAFETY Accident Response System perform the following functions: Cut off fuel to the engine. Flash hazard lights as long as the battery has power or until the hazard light button is pressed. The hazard lights can be deactivated by pressing the hazard light button. Turn on the interior lights, which remain on as long as the battery has power or for 15 minutes from the intervention of the Enhanced Accident Response System. Unlock the power door locks. Turn off the HVAC Blower Motor. Cut off battery power to the: –Engine –Electric power steering –Brake booster –Electric park brake –Automatic transmission gear selector –Horn –Front wiper –Headlamp washer pump Turn off the Fuel Pump Heater (if equipped). Customer Action Enhanced Accident Response System Reset Procedure After the event occurs, when the system is active, a message regarding fuel cutoff is displayed. Turn the ignition switch from ignition AVV/START or MAR/ACC/ON/ RUN to ignition STOP/OFF/LOCK. Carefully check the vehicle for fuel leaks in the engine compartment and on the ground near the engine compartment and fuel tank before resetting the system and starting the engine. Depending on the nature of the event the left and right turn signal lights, located in the instrument panel, may both be blinking and will continue to blink. In order to move your vehicle to the side of the road, you must follow the system reset procedure. Customer Will See Note: Each step MUST BE held for at least two seconds 1.

Modifications to any part of the air bag system could cause it to fail when you need it. You could be injured if the air bag system is not there to protect you. Do not modify the components or wiring, including adding any kind of badges or stickers to the steering wheel hub trim cover or the upper right side of the instrument panel. Do not modify the front bumper, vehicle body structure, or add aftermarket side steps or running boards. It is dangerous to try to repair any part of the air bag system yourself. Be sure to tell anyone who works on your vehicle that it has an air bag system. Do not attempt to modify any part of your air bag system. The air bag may inflate accidentally or may not function properly if modifications are made. Take your vehicle to an authorized dealer for any air bag system service. If your seat, including your trim cover and cushion, needs to be serviced in any way (including removal or loosening/tightening of seat attachment bolts), take the vehicle to your authorized dealer. Only manufacturer approved seat accessories may be used. If it is necessary to modify the air bag system for persons with disabilities, contact your authorized dealer. 94 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. Child Restraints Everyone in your vehicle needs to be buckled up at all times, including babies and children. Every state in the United States, and every Canadian province, requires that small children ride in proper restraint systems. This is the law, and you can be prosecuted for ignoring it. Children 12 years or younger should ride properly buckled up in a rear seat, if available. According to crash statistics, children are safer when properly restrained in the rear seats rather than in the front. Warning! In a collision, an unrestrained child 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 badly injured or killed. Any child riding in your vehicle should be in a proper restraint for the child’s size. There are different sizes and types of restraints for children from newborn size to the child almost large enough for an adult safety belt. Always check the child seat Owner’s Manual to make sure you have the correct seat for your child. Carefully read and follow all the instructions and warnings in the child restraint Owner’s Manual and on all the labels attached to the child restraint. Before buying any restraint system, make sure that it has a label certifying that it meets all applicable Safety Standards. You should also make sure that you can install it in the vehicle where you will use it.

Two types of child restraints can be used rear-facing: infant carriers and convertible child seats. The infant carrier is only used rear-facing in the vehicle. It is recommended for children from birth until they reach the weight or height limit of the infant carrier. Convertible child seats can be used either rear-facing or forward-facing in the vehicle. Convertible child seats often have a higher weight limit in the rear-facing direction than infant carriers do, so they can be used rear-facing by children who have outgrown their infant carrier but are still less than at least two years old. Children should remain rear-facing until they reach the highest weight or height allowed by their convertible child seat. Warning! Never place a rear-facing child restraint in front of an air bag. A deploying passenger front air bag can cause death or serious injury to a child 12 years or younger, including a child in a rear-facing child restraint. Only use a rear-facing child restraint in a vehicle with a rear seat. Older Children And Child Restraints Children who are two years old or who have outgrown their rear-facing convertible child seat can ride forward-facing in the vehicle. Forward-facing child seats and convertible child seats used in the forward-facing direction are for children who are over two years old or who have outgrown the rear-facing weight or height limit of their rear-facing convertible child seat. Children should remain in a forward-facing child seat with a harness for as long as possible, up to the highest weight or height allowed by the child seat. All children whose weight or height is above the forward-facing limit for the child seat should use a belt-positioning booster seat until the vehicle’s seat belts fit properly. If the child cannot sit with knees bent over the vehicle’s seat cushion while the child’s back is against the seatback, they should use a belt-positioning booster seat. The child and belt-positioning booster seat are held in the vehicle by the seat belt. Warning! Improper installation can lead to failure of an infant or child restraint. It could come loose in a collision. The child could be badly injured or killed. Follow the child restraint manufacturer’s directions exactly when installing an infant or child restraint. After a child restraint is installed in the vehicle, do not move the vehicle seat forward or rearward because it can loosen the child restraint attachments. Remove the child restraint before adjusting the vehicle seat position. When the vehicle seat has been adjusted, reinstall the child restraint. When your child restraint is not in use, secure it in the vehicle with the seat belt or LATCH anchorages, or remove it from the vehicle. Do not leave it loose in the vehicle. In a sudden stop or accident, it could strike the occupants or seatbacks and cause serious personal injury. Children Too Large For Booster Seats Children who are large enough to wear the shoulder belt comfortably, and whose legs are long enough to bend over the front of the seat when their back is against the seatback, should use the seat belt in a rear seat. Use this simple 5-step test to decide whether the child can use the vehicle’s seat belt alone: 1. Can the child sit all the way back against the back of the vehicle seat? 2. Do the child’s knees bend comfortably over the front of the vehicle seat – while the child is still sitting all the way back? 3. Does the shoulder belt cross the child’s shoulder between their neck and arm? 4. Is the lap part of the belt as low as possible, touching the child’s thighs and not the stomach? 5. Can the child stay seated like this for the whole trip? If the answer to any of these questions was “no,” then the child still needs to use a booster seat in this vehicle. If the child is using the lap/shoulder belt, check seat belt fit periodically and make sure the seat belt buckle is latched. A child’s squirming or slouching can move the belt out of position. If the shoulder belt contacts the face or neck, move the child closer to the center of the vehicle, or use a booster seat to position the seat belt on the child correctly. Warning! Never allow a child to put the shoulder belt under an arm or behind their back. In a crash, the shoulder belt will not protect a child properly, which may result in serious injury or death. A child must always wear both the lap and shoulder portions of the seat belt correctly.

The LATCH system has three vehicle anchor points for installing LATCH-equipped child seats. There are two lower anchorages located at the back of the seat cushion where it meets the seatback and one top tether anchorage located behind the seating position. These anchorages are used to install LATCH-equipped child seats without using the vehicle’s seat belts. Some seating positions may have a top tether anchorage but no lower anchorages. In these seating positions, the seat belt must be used with the top tether anchorage to install the child restraint. Please see the following table for more information. LATCH Positions For Installing Child Restraints In This Vehicle LATCH Positions Lower Anchorage Symbol (2 Anchorages Per Seating Position) Top Tether Anchorage Symbol Frequently Asked Questions About Installing Child Restraints With LATCH What is the weight limit (child’s weight + weight of the child restraint) for using the LATCH anchorage system to attach the child restraint? Can the LATCH anchorages and the seat belt be used together to attach a rear-facing or forward-facing child restraint? 98 65 lbs (29.5 kg) Use the LATCH anchorage system until the combined weight of the child and the child restraint is 65 lbs (29.5 kg). Use the seat belt and tether anchor instead of the LATCH system once the combined weight is more than 65 lbs (29.5 kg). No Do not use the seat belt when you use the LATCH anchorage system to attach a rear-facing or forward-facing child restraint. Booster seats may be attached to the LATCH anchorages if allowed by the booster seat manufacturer. See your booster seat owner’s manual for more information. Frequently Asked Questions About Installing Child Restraints With LATCH Can a child seat be installed in the center position using the inner LATCH lower anchorage? No Use the seat belt and tether anchor to install a child seat in the center seating position. No Never “share” a LATCH anchorage with two or more child restraints. If the center position does not have dedicated LATCH lower anchorages, use the seat belt to install a child seat in the center position next to a child seat using the LATCH anchorages in an outboard position. Can the rear-facing child restraint touch the back of the front passenger seat? Yes The child seat may touch the back of the front passenger seat if the child restraint manufacturer also allows contact. See your child restraint owner’s manual for more information. Can the head restraints be removed? Yes Only the center head restraint can be removed Can two child restraints be attached using a common lower LATCH anchorage? Locating The LATCH Anchorages Locating The Upper Tether Anchorages The lower anchorages are round bars that are found at the rear of the seat cushion where it meets the seatback. Each anchorage is under a cover with the anchorage symbol on it. Lift the cover to access the lower anchorage. There are tether strap anchorages behind each rear seating position located in the panel between the rear seatback and the rear window. They are found under a plastic cover with the tether anchorage symbol on it. LATCH Anchorage Locations 1 — LATCH Anchorage Bar 2 — LATCH Anchorage Locations 99 SAFETY Center Seat LATCH Warning! Upper Tether Anchorage Location LATCH-compatible child restraint systems will be equipped with a rigid bar or a flexible strap on each side. Each will have a hook or connector to attach to the lower anchorage and a way to tighten the connection to the anchorage. Forward-facing child restraints and some rear-facing child restraints will also be equipped with a tether strap. The tether strap will have a hook at the end to attach to the top tether anchorage and a way to tighten the strap after it is attached to the anchorage. Do not install a child restraint in the center position using the LATCH system. This position is not approved for installing child seats using the LATCH attachments. You must use the seat belt and tether anchor to install a child seat in the center seating position. Never use the same lower anchorage to attach more than one child restraint. Please refer to “Installing The LATCH-Compatible Child Restraint System” for typical installation instructions. Always follow the directions of the child restraint manufacturer when installing your child restraint. Not all child restraint systems will be installed as described here. To Install A LATCH-Compatible Child Restraint If the selected seating position has a Switchable Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) seat belt, stow the seat belt, following the instructions below. See the section “Installing Child Restraints Using the Vehicle Seat Belt” to check what type of seat belt each seating position has. 100 1. Loosen the adjusters on the lower straps and on the tether strap of the child seat so that you can more easily attach the hooks or connectors to the vehicle anchorages. 2. Place the child seat between the lower anchorages for that seating position. For some second row seats, you may need to recline the seat and / or raise the head restraint to get a better fit. If the rear seat can be moved forward and rearward in the vehicle, you may wish to move it to its rear-most position to make room for the child seat. You may also move the front seat forward to allow more room for the child seat. 3. Attach the lower hooks or connectors of the child restraint to the lower anchorages in the selected seating position. 4. If the child restraint has a tether strap, connect it to the top tether anchorage. See the section “Installing Child Restraints Using the Top Tether Anchorage” for directions to attach a tether anchor. 5. Tighten all of the straps as you push the child restraint rearward and downward into the seat. Remove slack in the straps according to the child restraint manufacturer’s instructions. 6. Test that the child restraint is installed tightly by pulling back and forth on the child seat at the belt path. It should not move more than 1 inch (25.4 mm) in any direction. How To Stow An Unused SwitchableALR (ALR) Seat Belt: When using the LATCH attaching system to install a child restraint, stow all ALR seat belts that are not being used by other occupants or being used to secure child restraints. An unused belt could injure a child if they play with it and accidentally lock the seat belt retractor. Before installing a child restraint using the LATCH system, buckle the seat belt behind the child restraint and out of the child’s reach. If the buckled seat belt interferes with the child restraint installation, instead of buckling it behind the child restraint, route the seat belt through the child restraint belt path and then buckle it. Do not lock the seat belt. Remind all children in the vehicle that the seat belts are not toys and that they should not play with them. Warning! Improper installation of a child restraint to the LATCH anchorages can lead to failure of the restraint. The child could be badly injured or killed. Follow the child restraint manufacturer’s directions exactly when installing an infant or child restraint. Child restraint anchorages are designed to withstand only those loads imposed by correctly-fitted child restraints. Under no circumstances are they to be used for adult seat belts, harnesses, or for attaching other items or equipment to the vehicle. Installing Child Restraints Using The Vehicle Seat Belt Child restraint systems are designed to be secured in vehicle seats by lap belts or the lap belt portion of a lap/shoulder belt. into a locked mode by pulling all of the webbing out of the retractor and then letting the webbing retract back into the retractor. If it is locked, the ALR will make a clicking noise while the webbing is pulled back into the retractor. Refer to the “Automatic Locking Mode” description in “Switchable Automatic Locking Retractors (ALR)” under “Occupant Restraint Systems” for additional information on ALR. Please see the table below and the following sections for more information. Lap/Shoulder Belt Systems For Installing Child Restraints In This Vehicle Warning! Improper installation or failure to properly secure a child restraint can lead to failure of the restraint. The child could be badly injured or killed. Follow the child restraint manufacturer’s directions exactly when installing an infant or child restraint. The seat belts in the passenger seating positions are equipped with a Switchable Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) that is designed to keep the lap portion of the seat belt tight around the child restraint so that it is not necessary to use a locking clip. The ALR retractor can be “switched” Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) Locations ALR = Switchable Automatic Locking Retractor Top Tether Anchorage Symbol 101 SAFETY Frequently Asked Questions About Installing Child Restraints With Seat Belts What is the weight limit (child’s weight + weight of the child restraint) for using the Tether Anchor with the seat belt to attach a forward facing child restraint? Weight limit of the Child Restraint Always use the tether anchor when using the seat belt to install a forward facing child restraint, up to the recommended weight limit of the child restraint. Can the rear-facing child restraint touch the back of the front passenger seat? Yes Contact between the front passenger seat and the child restraint is allowed, if the child restraint manufacturer also allows contact. Can the head restraints be removed? Yes Only the center head restraint can be removed Can the buckle stalk be twisted to tighten the seat belt against the belt path of the child restraint? No Do not twist the buckle stalk in a seating position with an ALR retractor. Installing A Child Restraint With A Switchable Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR): Child restraint systems are designed to be secured in vehicle seats by lap belts or the lap belt portion of a lap/shoulder belt. Warning! Improper installation or failure to properly secure a child restraint can lead to failure of the restraint. The child could be badly injured or killed. Follow the child restraint manufacturer’s directions exactly when installing an infant or child restraint. 102 1. Place the child seat in the center of the seating position. For some second row seats, you may need to recline the seat and/or raise the head restraint to get a better fit. If the rear seat can be moved forward and rearward in the vehicle, you may wish to move it to its rear-most position to make room for the child seat. You may also move the front seat forward to allow more room for the child seat. 2. Pull enough of the seat belt webbing from the retractor to pass it through the belt path of the child restraint. Do not twist the belt webbing in the belt path. 3. Slide the latch plate into the buckle until you hear a “click.” 4. Pull on the webbing to make the lap portion tight against the child seat. 5. To lock the seat belt, pull down on the shoulder part of the belt until you have pulled all the seat belt webbing out of the retractor. Then, allow the webbing to retract back into the retractor. As the webbing retracts, you will hear a clicking sound. This means the seat belt is now in the Automatic Locking mode. 6. Try to pull the webbing out of the retractor. If it is locked, you should not be able to pull out any webbing. If the retractor is not locked, repeat step 5. 7. Finally, pull up on any excess webbing to tighten the lap portion around the child restraint while you push the child restraint rearward and downward into the vehicle seat. 8. If the child restraint has a top tether strap and the seating position has a top tether anchorage, connect the tether strap to the anchorage and tighten the tether strap. See the section “Installing Child Restraints Using the Top Tether Anchorage” for directions to attach a tether anchor. 9. Test that the child restraint is installed tightly by pulling back and forth on the child seat at the belt path. It should not move more than 1 inch (25.4 mm) in any direction. Any seat belt system will loosen with time, so check the belt occasionally, and pull it tight if necessary. Installing Child Restraints Using The Top Tether Anchorage: 2. Rotate or lift the cover to access the anchor directly behind the seat where you are placing the child restraint. Warning! Do not attach a tether strap for a rear-facing car seat to any location in front of the car seat, including the seat frame or a tether anchorage. Only attach the tether strap of a rear-facing car seat to the tether anchorage that is approved for that seating position, located behind the top of the vehicle seat. See the section “Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH) Restraint System” for the location of approved tether anchorages in your vehicle. 1. Look behind the seating position where you plan to install the child restraint to find the tether anchorage. You may need to move the seat forward to provide better access to the tether anchorage. If there is no top tether anchorage for that seating position, move the child restraint to another position in the vehicle if one is available. Upper Tether Anchorage Location 3. Route the tether strap to provide the most direct path for the strap between the anchor and the child seat. If your vehicle is equipped with adjustable rear head restraints, raise the head restraint, and where possible, route the tether strap under the head restraint and between the two posts. If not possible, lower the head restraint and pass the tether strap around the outboard side of the head restraint. 4. Attach the tether strap hook of the child restraint to the top tether anchorage as shown in the diagram. 5. Remove slack in the tether strap according to the child restraint manufacturer’s instructions. 103 SAFETY SAFETY TIPS Warning! An incorrectly anchored tether strap could lead to increased head motion and possible injury to the child. Use only the anchorage position directly behind the child seat to secure a child restraint top tether strap. If your vehicle is equipped with a split rear seat, make sure the tether strap does not slip into the opening between the seatbacks as you remove slack in the strap. Transporting Pets Air Bags deploying in the front seat could harm your pet. An unrestrained pet will be thrown about and possibly injured, or injure a passenger during panic braking or in a collision. Pets should be restrained in the rear seat in pet harnesses or pet carriers that are secured by seat belts. Transporting Passengers NEVER TRANSPORT PASSENGERS IN THE CARGO AREA. Warning! Do not leave children or animals inside parked vehicles in hot weather. Interior heat build-up may cause serious injury or death. 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 seriously 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. Exhaust Gas Warning! Exhaust gases can injure or kill. They contain carbon monoxide (CO), which is colorless and odorless. Breathing it can make you unconscious and can eventually poison you. To avoid breathing (CO), follow these safety tips: 104 Do not run the engine in a closed garage or in confined areas any longer than needed to move your vehicle in or out of the area. If you are required to drive with the trunk/liftgate/rear doors open, make sure that all windows are closed and the climate control BLOWER switch is set at high speed. DO NOT use the recirculation mode. If it is necessary to sit in a parked vehicle with the engine running, adjust your heating or cooling controls to force outside air into the vehicle. Set the blower at high speed. The best protection against carbon monoxide entry into the vehicle body is a properly maintained engine exhaust system. Whenever a change is noticed in the sound of the exhaust system, when exhaust fumes can be detected inside the vehicle, or when the underside or rear of the vehicle is damaged, have a competent mechanic inspect the complete exhaust system and adjacent body areas for broken, damaged, deteriorated, or mispositioned parts. Open seams or loose connections could permit exhaust fumes to seep into the passenger compartment. In addition, inspect the exhaust system each time the vehicle is raised for lubrication or oil change. Replace as required. Safety Checks You Should Make Inside The Vehicle Refer to “Occupant Restraint Systems” in “Safety” for further information. Seat Belts Defroster Inspect the seat belt system periodically, checking for cuts, frays, and loose parts. Damaged parts must be replaced immediately. Do not disassemble or modify the system. Front seat belt assemblies must be replaced after a collision. Rear seat belt assemblies must be replaced after a collision if they have been damaged (i.e., bent retractor, torn webbing, etc.). If there is any question regarding seat belt or retractor condition, replace the seat belt. Check operation by selecting the defrost mode and place the blower control on high speed. You should be able to feel the air directed against the windshield. See your authorized dealer for service if your defroster is inoperable. Air Bag Warning Light will turn on The Air Bag warning light for four to eight seconds as a bulb check when the ignition switch is first turned to ON/RUN. If the light is either not on during starting, stays on, or turns on while driving, have the system inspected at an authorized dealer as soon as possible. This light will illuminate with a single chime when a fault with the Air Bag Warning Light has been detected, it will stay on until the fault is cleared. If the light comes on intermittently or remains on while driving, have an authorized dealer service the vehicle immediately. Floor Mat Safety Information Always use floor mats designed to fit your vehicle. Only use a floor mat that does not interfere with the operation of the pedal assemblies. Only use a floor mat that is securely attached using the floor mat fasteners so it cannot slip out of position and interfere with the pedal assemblies or impair safe operation of your vehicle in other ways. Warning! An improperly attached, damaged, folded, or stacked floor mat, or damaged floor mat fasteners may cause your floor mat to interfere with the accelerator, brake, or clutch pedals and cause a loss of vehicle control. To prevent SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH: ALWAYS securely attach your floor mat using the floor mat fasteners. DO NOT install your floor mat upside down or turn your floor mat over. Lightly pull to confirm mat is secured using the floor mat fasteners on a regular basis. ALWAYS REMOVE THE EXISTING FLOOR before MAT FROM THE VEHICLE installing any other floor mat. NEVER install or stack an additional floor mat on top of an existing floor mat. ONLY install floor mats designed to fit your vehicle. NEVER install a floor mat that cannot be properly attached and secured to your vehicle. If a floor mat needs to be replaced, only use a FCA approved floor mat for the specific make, model, and year of your vehicle. ONLY use the driver’s side floor mat on the driver’s side floor area. To check for interference, with the vehicle properly parked with the engine off, fully depress the accelerator, the brake, and the clutch pedal (if present) to check for interference. If your floor mat interferes with the operation of any pedal, or is not secure to the floor, remove the floor mat from the vehicle and place the floor mat in your trunk. ONLY use the passenger’s side floor mat on the passenger’s side floor area. ALWAYS make sure objects cannot fall or slide into the driver’s side floor area when the vehicle is moving. Objects can become trapped under accelerator, brake, or clutch pedals and could cause a loss of vehicle control. 105 SAFETY NEVER place any objects under the floor mat (e.g., towels, keys, etc.). These objects could change the position of the floor mat and may cause interference with the accelerator, brake, or clutch pedals. If the vehicle carpet has been removed and re-installed, always properly attach carpet to the floor and check the floor mat fasteners are secure to the vehicle carpet. Fully depress each pedal to check for interference with the accelerator, brake, or clutch pedals then re-install the floor mats. It is recommended to only use mild soap and water to clean your floor mats. After cleaning, always check your floor mat has been properly installed and is secured to your vehicle using the floor mat fasteners by lightly pulling mat. Periodic Safety Checks You Should Make Outside The Vehicle Tires Examine tires for excessive tread wear and uneven wear patterns. Check for stones, nails, glass, or other objects lodged in the tread or sidewall. Inspect the tread for cuts and cracks. Inspect sidewalls for cuts, cracks, and bulges. Check the wheel nuts for tightness. Check the tires (including spare) for proper cold inflation pressure. 106 Lights Have someone observe the operation of brake lights and exterior lights while you work the controls. Check turn signal and high beam indicator lights on the instrument panel. Door Latches Check for proper closing, latching, and locking. Fluid Leaks Check area under vehicle after overnight parking for fuel, coolant, oil, or other fluid leaks. Also, if gasoline fumes are detected or if fuel, or brake fluid leaks are suspected. The cause should be located and corrected immediately. STARTING AND OPERATING Let’s get to the core of the vehicle, and see how you can explore its fullest potential.

Never press the accelerator pedal before starting the engine. If necessary, messages indicating the starting procedure can be shown in the display. Proceed as follows: Warning! When leaving the vehicle, always remove the key fob from the vehicle and lock your vehicle. Never leave children alone in a vehicle, or with access to an unlocked vehicle. Allowing children to be in a vehicle unattended is dangerous for a number of reasons. A child or others could be seriously or fatally injured. Children should be warned not to touch the parking brake, brake pedal or the transmission gear selector. Do not leave the key fob in or near the vehicle, or in a location accessible to children. A child could 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 serious injury or death. 108 1. Apply the electric park brake and set the gear selector to PARK (P) or NEUTRAL (N). 2. Fully depress the brake pedal without touching the accelerator. 3. Briefly push the ignition button. 4. If the engine doesn't start within a few seconds, you need to repeat the procedure. If the problem persists, contact an authorized dealer. If the vehicle has a discharged battery, booster cables may be used to obtain a start from a booster battery or the battery in another vehicle. This type of start can be dangerous if done improperly. Refer to “Emergency Starting” in “In Case Of Emergency” for further information. Caution! To prevent damage to the starter, do not continuously crank the engine for more than 25 seconds at a time. Wait 60 seconds before trying again. If Engine Fails To Start Warning! Never pour fuel or other flammable liquid into the throttle body air inlet opening in an attempt to start the vehicle. This could result in flash fire causing serious personal injury. Do not attempt to push or tow your vehicle to get it started. Vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission cannot be started this way. Unburned fuel could enter the catalytic converter and once the engine has started, ignite and damage the converter and vehicle. Starting The Engine With Key Fob Battery Run Down Or Drained If the ignition does not respond when the button is pushed the key fob battery might be run down or drained. Therefore, the system does not detect the presence of the key fob in the vehicle and displays a dedicated message. Stopping The Engine To stop the engine, proceed as follows: 1. Park the vehicle in a position that is not dangerous for oncoming traffic. 2. Engage the PARK (P) mode. 3. With engine idling, press the START/STOP button on the steering wheel to STOP the engine. Note: Do not leave the ignition in ON mode when the engine is off. To shut off the engine with vehicle speed greater than 5 mph (8 km/h), you must push and hold the ignition or push the START/STOP button three times consecutively within a few seconds. The engine will shut down, and the ignition will be placed in the ON mode. ENGINE BREAK-IN RECOMMENDATIONS 2.0L GME T4 Engine Break-In For vehicles equipped with the 2.0L GME T4, use the following engine break-in recommendations: Despite modern technology and World Class Manufacturing methods, the moving parts of the engine must still wear in with each other. This wearing in occurs mainly during the first 500 miles (805 km) and continues through the first oil change interval. 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 period and not interpreted as an indication of a problem. Please monitor your oil level during the break-in period and add oil as required. It is recommended for the operator to observe the following driving behaviors during the new vehicle break-in period: 0 to 100 miles (0 to 160 km): Do not allow the engine to operate at idle for an extended period of time. Press the accelerator pedal slowly and not more than halfway to avoid rapid acceleration. Avoid aggressive braking. Drive with the engine speed less than 3500 RPM. Maintain vehicle speed below 55 mph (88 km) and observe local speed limits. 100 to 300 miles (160 to 483 km): Press the accelerator pedal slowly and not more than halfway to avoid rapid acceleration in lower gears (1st to 3rd gears). Avoid aggressive braking. Drive with the engine speed less than 5000 RPM. Maintain vehicle speed below 70 mph (112 km/h) and observe local speed limits. 300 to 500 miles (483 to 805 km): Exercise the full engine rpm range, shifting manually (paddles or gear shift) at higher rpm’s when possible. Do not perform sustained operation with the accelerator pedal at wide open throttle. 109 STARTING AND OPERATING Maintain vehicle speed below 85 mph (136 km/h) and observe local speed limits. For the first 1500 miles (2414 km): Do not participate in track events, sport driving schools, or similar activities during the first 1500 miles (2414 km). Note: Monitor engine oil with every refueling and add if necessary. Oil and fuel consumption may be higher through the first oil change interval. ELECTRIC PARK BRAKE Note: The vehicle is equipped with electric park brake to guarantee better use and optimal performance compared to a manually operated park brake. The electric parking brake features a switch located on the center console, a motor with caliper for each rear wheel, and an electronic control module. Normally, the electric parking brake is engaged automatically when the engine is stopped. This function can be deactivated/activated on the Information and Entertainment system by selecting the following items in sequence on the main menu: "Settings", "Driver Assistance" and "Automatic Parking Brake". In addition to engaging the electric park brake, along with steering and positioning chocks in front of the wheels (when on a steep slope), you must always place the vehicle in the PARK (P) mode before leaving. Should the vehicle battery be faulty, the battery must be replaced in order to unlock the electric park brake. Electric Park Brake Switch The electric parking brake can be engaged in two ways: Manually, by pulling the switch on the center console. Automatically, in "Safe Hold" or "Auto Park Brake" conditions. 110 Engaging The Park Brake Manually Briefly pull the switch located on the center console to manually engage the electric park brake when the vehicle is stationary. Noise may be heard from the rear of the vehicle when engaging the electric parking brake. A slight movement of the brake pedal may be detected when engaging the electric parking brake with the brake pedal pressed. With the electric parking brake engaged, the BRAKE warning light on the instrument panel and the switch will illuminate. Caution! With the Electronic Parking Brake failure warning light on, some functions of the electric parking brake are deactivated. In this case the driver is responsible for brake activation and vehicle parking in complete safety conditions. If, under exceptional circumstances, the use of the brake is required with the vehicle in motion, keep the switch on the center console pulled as long as the brake action is necessary. The BRAKE warning light may turn on with the hydraulic system temporarily unavailable, in this case braking is controlled by the motors. The brake lights will also automatically turn on in the same way as for normal braking with the use of the brake pedal. Release the switch on the center console to stop the braking action with the vehicle in motion. If, through this procedure, the vehicle is braked until a speed below 1.9 mph (3 km/h) is reached and the switch is kept pulled, the park brake will definitively engage. If the BRAKE warning light on the instrument panel remains on with the electric parking brake disengaged, this indicates a fault: in this case, contact an authorized dealer. Note: Driving the vehicle with the electric parking brake engaged, or using it several times to slow down the vehicle, may cause severe damage to the braking system. Disengaging The Electric Park Brake Manually In order to manually release the park brake, the ignition should be in the ON mode. Press the brake pedal, and then push the switch on the center console briefly. Noise may be heard from the rear of the vehicle, and a slight movement of the brake pedal may be detected during disengagement. After disengaging the electric parking brake, the BRAKE warning light on the instrument panel and the light on the switch will turn off. Warning! Never leave children alone in a vehicle, or with access to an unlocked vehicle. Allowing children to be in a vehicle unattended is dangerous for a number of reasons. A child or others could be seriously or fatally injured. Children should be warned not to touch the park brake, brake pedal or the gear selector. Do not leave the key fob in or near the vehicle or in a location accessible to children. A child could operate power windows, other controls, or move the vehicle. Be sure the park brake is fully disengaged before driving; failure to do so can lead to brake failure and a collision. Always fully apply the park brake when leaving your vehicle, or it may roll and cause damage or injury. 111 STARTING AND OPERATING 112 Caution! Never use gear position PARK (P) instead of the electric parking brake. Always engage the electric parking brake when parking the vehicle to prevent injury or damage caused by the unexpected movement of the vehicle. Electric Park Brake Operating Modes The electric park brake may operate as follows: "Dynamic Operating Mode": this mode is activated by pulling the switch repeatedly while driving. "Static Engagement and Release Mode": with the vehicle stationary, the electric park brake can be activated by pulling the switch on the center console once. On the other hand, push the switch and the brake pedal at the same time to disengage the brake. "Drive Away Release": the electric park brake will automatically disengage with the driver side seat belt fastened and the detection of an action performed by the driver to move the vehicle (forward gear or reverse gear). This feature can be turned on or off in the Information and Entertainment System. "Safe Hold": if the vehicle speed is lower than 1.9 mph (3 km/h), the gear selector is not in PARK (P) position and the driver's intention of leaving the vehicle is detected, the electric park brake will automatically engage to hold the vehicle in safety conditions. "Auto Park Brake": if the vehicle speed is below 1.9 mph (3 km/h), the electric park brake will automatically engage when the gear selector is in PARK (P) position. The light on the switch located on the center console switches on together with the BRAKE warning light on the instrument panel when the park brake is engaged and applied to the wheels. Each automatic park brake engagement can be cancelled by pressing the switch on the center console and at the same time moving the gear selector for the transmission to position PARK (P). Safe Hold Safe Hold is a safety function that automatically engages the electric park brake in the event of a dangerous condition for the vehicle. The electric park brake engages automatically to prevent vehicle movement if: The vehicle speed is below 2 mph (3 km/h). A transmission operating mode different from PARK (P) is activated. The driver's seat belt is not fastened. The driver side door is open. No attempts to apply pressure on the brake pedal have been detected. The “Safe Hold” function can be temporarily disabled by pressing the switch located on the center console and the brake pedal at the same time, with the vehicle stationary and the driver side door open. Once disabled, the function will activate again when the vehicle speed reaches 12 mph (20 km/h) or the ignition is cycled to STOP and then to ON. AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION The vehicle can be equipped with an electronically controlled 8-speed automatic transmission where gear shifting automatically takes place, depending on the vehicle usage instantaneous parameters (vehicle speed, grade, and accelerator pedal position). The new transmission is an absolute innovation, as it can match the Stop/Start system with the traditional automatic transmissions with built-in torque converter. For further information, refer to the “Stop/Start” section within this chapter. Manual gear shifting can still occur thanks to the "sequential mode" position for the gear selector. Warning! It is dangerous to shift out of PARK or NEUTRAL if the engine speed is higher than idle speed. If your foot is not firmly pressing the brake pedal, the vehicle could accelerate quickly forward or in reverse. You could lose control of the vehicle and hit someone or something. Only shift into gear when the engine is idling normally and your foot is firmly pressing the brake pedal. Unintended movement of a vehicle could injure those in or near the vehicle. As with all vehicles, you should never exit a vehicle while the engine is running. Before exiting a vehicle, always apply the park brake, shift the transmission into PARK, and turn the ignition STOP/OFF. When the ignition is in the STOP/OFF mode, the transmission is locked in PARK, securing the vehicle against unwanted movement. When leaving the vehicle, always make sure the ignition is in the STOP/OFF mode, remove the key fob from the vehicle, and lock the vehicle. Never leave children alone in a vehicle, or with access to an unlocked vehicle. Allowing children to be in a vehicle unattended is dangerous for a number of reasons. A child or others could be seriously or fatally injured. Children should be warned not to touch the parking brake, brake pedal or the transmission gear selector. Do not leave the key fob in or near the vehicle (or in a location accessible to children), and do not leave the ignition in the AVV or ON mode. A child could operate power windows, other controls, or move the vehicle. Caution! Damage to the transmission may occur if the following precautions are not observed: Shift into or out of PARK or REVERSE only after the vehicle has come to a complete stop. Do not shift between PARK, REVERSE, NEUTRAL, or DRIVE when the engine is above idle speed. Before shifting into any gear, make sure your foot is firmly pressing the brake pedal. Automatic Transmission Limp Home Mode Transmission function is monitored electronically for abnormal conditions. If a condition is detected that could result in transmission damage, Transmission Limp Home Mode is activated. In this condition, the transmission stays in fourth gear, regardless of the selected gear. Positions PARK (P), REVERSE (R) and NEUTRAL (N) still work. symbol might light up in the The instrument cluster. 113 STARTING AND OPERATING Temporary failure In the event of a momentary problem, the transmission can be reset to regain all forward gears by performing the following steps: 1. Stop the vehicle. 2. Shift the transmission into PARK (P), if possible. If not, shift the transmission to NEUTRAL (N). Alfa DNA / Pro System This vehicle is equipped with an Alfa DNA / Pro system lever (located on the center console). There are up to four modes of operation to be selected according to driving style and road conditions: 3. Push and hold the ignition until the engine turns OFF. Unlike the other modes, the RACE position is unstable, therefore, by rotating the selector to RACE, it will return to its initial position "d". On the instrument panel display, the different modes are characterized by different colors: Dynamic - Red Natural - Blue Advanced Efficiency - Green RACE - Yellow (RACE mode is Quadrifolgio exclusive) 4. Wait for about 10 seconds, then restart the engine. 5. Shift into the desired gear range. If the problem is no longer detected, the transmission will return to normal operation. Note: Even if the transmission can be reset, we recommend that you visit your authorized dealer at your earliest possible convenience. Your authorized dealer has diagnostic equipment to determine if the problem could reoccur. If the transmission cannot be reset, service is required at your authorized dealer. 114 ALFA DNA / PRO SELECTOR Alfa DNA Pro System Selector d = Dynamic (sports driving mode) n = Natural (mode for driving in normal conditions) a = Advanced Efficiency (ECO driving mode for maximum fuel savings). RACE = track race driving mode (RACE mode is Quadrifolgio exclusive). = adjusts the calibration of the suspensions (if equipped). Mode Display The different driving modes are graphically different from the color of the frames and the contents only on the "performance" screens. Driving Modes Note: "Dynamic" Mode It is recommended to activate this mode at the track. To deactivate the “RACE” mode, take the selector to position "RACE" again and the system will be set to "d", Dynamic mode. Activation/Deactivation It is activated by rotating the selector to the letter "d", the displays light up in red. To deactivate the Dynamic mode, move the selector to "n", Natural mode. "Natural" Mode Activation/Deactivation It is activated by rotating the selector to the letter "n", the displays light up in blue. To deactivate the Natural mode, move the selector to another mode ("d" or "a"). "Advanced Efficiency" Mode Activation/Deactivation It is activated by rotating the selector to the letter "a", the displays light up in green. To deactivate the Advanced Efficiency mode, move the selector to "n", Natural mode. Note: When the engine is next started, the "Advanced Efficiency", "Dynamic" and "Natural" mode selected previously is retained. The system will reactivate in "Advanced Efficiency", "Dynamic" or "Natural" mode, depending on which mode was selected before the engine was stopped. When the engine is next started, the "RACE" mode selected previously is not retained. The system will reactivate in "Dynamic" mode. It is not possible to go directly from "Dynamic" mode to "Advanced Efficiency" mode and vice versa. You must always activate the “Natural” mode first and then select the other mode. ALFA ACTIVE SUSPENSION (AAS) — IF EQUIPPED The vehicle's electronic suspension management system is aimed at optimizing the vehicle's performance. The system continuously monitors the damping of the suspension through the actuator installed on each shock absorber. The calibration of the shock absorbers can be adjusted to the conditions of the road surface and to the dynamic conditions of the vehicle, improving its comfort and road handling. Even while driving, the driver can choose between two types of suspension calibration: a more sporty ride or a more comfortable one. This is only available in "d", or "RACE" mode (RACE mode is Quadrifolgio exclusive). By pushing the button, the system will work with the shock absorber calibration which favors driving comfort. “RACE” Mode — If Equipped Activation/Deactivation It is activated by rotating the selector to position "RACE", the displays light up in yellow. 115 STARTING AND OPERATING 116 STOP/START SYSTEM Stop/Start System Alfa Active Suspension Button If the system fails, the following symbol will appear in the instrument cluster . display The Stop/Start system automatically shuts off the engine during a vehicle stop if the required conditions are met. Releasing the brake pedal or accelerator pedal will automatically restart the engine. The function was developed to increase vehicle efficiency by reducing fuel consumption, gas emissions, and sound pollution. Operating Mode Stopping the Engine With vehicle at a standstill and brake pedal pressed, the engine switches off if the gear selector is in a position other than REVERSE (R). The system does not operate when the gear selector is in REVERSE (R), in order to making parking maneuvers easier. In the event of stops uphill, engine switching off is disabled to make the "Hill Start Assist" function available (works only with running engine). NOTE: The engine can only be automatically stopped after having run at about 6 mph (10 km/h). After an automatic restart, the vehicle only needs to exceed a speed of 0.3 mph (0.5 km/h) to stop the engine. Engine stopping is signaled by the symbol lighting up on the instrument cluster display. Restarting the Engine To restart the engine, release the brake pedal. With the brake pressed and the transmission in automatic mode DRIVE (D), the engine will restart by shifting to REVERSE (R), to PARK (P) or to "AutoStick". With brake pressed if the gear selector is in "AutoStick" mode, the engine will restart by shifting to PARK (P) or by moving the selector to + or -. System Manual Activation/ Deactivation To manually activate/deactivate the system, push the button located in the control panel on the left of the steering wheel. SPEED LIMITER Speed Limit Programming Description To access the function, on the main menu select the following items in sequence: "Settings", "Safety" and "Speed Limiter Set Speed". By turning the Rotary Pad, the speed increases by 5 mph (5 km/h), from a minimum of 18 mph (30 km/h) to a maximum of 112 mph (180 km/h). This feature allows the speed of the vehicle to be limited to speeds, which can be set by the driver. The maximum speed can be set with the vehicle stationary or in motion. The minimum speed that can be set is 18 mph (30mk/h). When this feature is active, the vehicle speed depends on the pressing of the accelerator pedal until the programmed speed limit is reached (see "Speed Limit Programming" paragraph). Activating The Device Stop/Start Button Light off: system activated. Light on: system deactivated. The feature can be activated/ deactivated through the Information and Entertainment System. Deactivating The Device To access this feature on the main menu, select the following items in sequence: "Settings", "Safety", "Speed Limiter" and "OFF". Automatic Deactivation Of The Device The device deactivates automatically in the event of fault in the system. In this case, contact an authorized dealer. Activating The Device To access this feature on the main menu, select the following items in sequence: "Settings", "Safety", “Speed Limiter” and “ON”. The activation of this feature is signaled by the displaying of the green symbol along with the last speed set. 117 STARTING AND OPERATING SPEED CONTROL (CRUISE CONTROL) Warning! Speed Control Description This is an electronically controlled driving assistance feature that allows the desired vehicle speed to be maintained, without having to press the accelerator pedal. This feature can be used at a speed above 25 mph (40 km/h) on long stretches of dry, straight roads with few variations (highways). The speed control buttons are located on the left side of the steering wheel. Note: 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 and have an accident. Do not use Speed Control in heavy traffic or on roads that are winding, icy, snow-covered or slippery. Activating To activate the Speed Control System, push the on/off button location on the left side of the steering wheel. 118 Note: The system cannot be engaged in FIRST or REVERSE gear. It is advisable to engage it in THIRD gear or higher if using the Autostick feature. Warning! To ensure correct operation, the speed control is designed to deactivate if more than one function is operated simultaneously. In this case, the system can be reactivated by pushing the on/off and setting the desired button speed. It is not recommended to use this feature in city traffic. While driving downhill, the system could brake the vehicle to keep the set speed the same. The Speed Control function can remain active at the same time as the Speed Limiter System. If the set speed is higher than the speed set with the Speed Limiter, the set speed will be lowered to that of the Speed Limiter. This function remains available in RACE mode. Leaving the 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 an accident. Always leave the system OFF when you are not using it. Setting The Desired Speed Speed Control On/Off Switch The activation of the system is signaled by the white warning light illuminating on the instrument cluster. To set a desired speed, proceed as follows: 1. Turn the Speed Control on. 2. When the vehicle has reached the desired speed, push the SET switch up or down and release to activate. When the accelerator is released, the vehicle will maintain the selected speed automatically. SET Switch Location If needed (when overtaking for instance), you can accelerate beyond the set speed by pressing the accelerator. When you release the pedal, the vehicle will return to the previously set speed. When traveling downhill with the system active, the vehicle speed may slightly exceed the set one. Note: Before pushing the SET switch, the vehicle must be traveling at a constant speed on a flat surface. Increasing/Decreasing Speed Increasing Speed Once the Speed Control has been activated, the speed can be increased by pushing the SET switch upward. By keeping the switch pushed, the set speed will increase until the switch is released. The new speed will then be set. At every movement of the SET switch, the set speed can be adjusted. Decreasing Speed When the system is active, to reduce the speed, push the SET switch downward. By keeping the switch pushed, the set speed will decrease until the switch is released. The new speed will then be set. At every movement of the SET switch, the set speed can be adjusted. Note: Moving the SET switch allows to adjust the speed according to the selected unit of measurement set on the Information and Entertainment System (see dedicated supplement). Use Of The Feature On Hilly Routes The system can automatically downshift to keep the set speed when driving on hilly routes. On steep grades, the loss or gain in speed may be considerable and is advisable to deactivate the Speed Control. Note: The system keeps the speed set even uphill and downhill. A slight variation in the speed on slight rises is completely normal. Recalling The Speed Once the system has been deactivated, but not canceled, the previously set speed can be recalled by pushing the RES button and removing your foot from the accelerator. The system will be set to the last stored speed. Note: Before resuming the previously set speed, you must accelerate to a speed close to that speed. Accelerating When Overtaking Press the accelerator as you would normally. When the pedal is released, the vehicle will return to the set speed. 119 STARTING AND OPERATING ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL (ACC) — IF EQUIPPED System Description Resume Button Location In Autostick (sequential) mode, before resuming the previously set speed, you should accelerate until you are close to that speed. Then, push and release the RES button. Deactivating Lightly pressing the brake pedal deactivates the speed control without deleting the set speed. The speed control may also be deactivated by applying the electric park brake or when the braking system is operated (e.g. operation of the ESC system). The set speed is deleted in the following cases: The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is a driver assist system that combines the speed control functions with controlling the distance from the vehicle ahead. The system allows to set and hold the vehicle at the desired speed without needing to press the accelerator. It also allows to set and hold a distance from the vehicle ahead (these settings are set by the driver). The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) uses a radar sensor located behind the front bumper and a camera located in the center/upper part of the windshield, to detect the presence of a vehicle close ahead. 120 If there is a malfunction with the Speed Control. This system enhances driving comfort while on the highway or out of town with light traffic. If the sensor does not detect a vehicle ahead, the system will maintain a fixed set speed. If the sensor detects a vehicle ahead, the system automatically intervenes by braking (or accelerating) slightly in order not to exceed the original set speed, so that the vehicle keeps the preset distance, seeking to adapt to the speed of the vehicle ahead. Note: Pushing the on/off button a second time. The ignition is cycled to STOP. Windshield Camera Location Front Bumper Radar Location Adaptive Cruise Control performance is not guaranteed under the following circumstances, and it is recommended to turn the system off when: Driving in fog, heavy rain, or snow. Driving in heavy traffic or construction zones. Driving on icy, snowy, slippery roads, roads with steep climbs and descents, or roads with numerous turns and bends. Entering a turn lane. When circumstances do not allow safe driving at a constant speed. Warning! Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is a convenience system. It is not a substitute for active driving involvement. It is always the driver’s responsibility to be attentive of road, traffic, and weather conditions, vehicle speed, distance to the vehicle ahead; and, most importantly, brake operation to ensure safe operation of the vehicle under all road conditions. Your complete attention is always required while driving to maintain safe control of your vehicle. Failure to follow these warnings can result in a collision and death or serious personal injury. The ACC system: – Does not react to pedestrians, oncoming vehicles, and stationary objects (e.g., a stopped vehicle in a traffic jam or a disabled vehicle). – Cannot take street, traffic, and weather conditions into account, and may be limited upon adverse sight distance conditions. – Does not always fully recognize complex driving conditions, which can result in wrong or missing distance warnings. – Will bring the vehicle to a complete stop while following a target vehicle and hold the vehicle for approximately 3 minutes in the stop position. If the target vehicle does not start moving within 3 minutes the parking brake will be activated, and the ACC system will be canceled. 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. On/Off Button When the system is enabled and ready to operate, the display shows the white icon above dashes in place of the speed. When circumstances do not allow safe driving at a constant speed. Activation/Deactivation The system has four operating states: Enabled (speed not set) Activated (speed set) Paused Deactivated Enabling/Activating To enable the system, push and release button located on the left side on the the steering wheel. Enabled Icons Setting a speed activates the system. The display shows the icon in green with the set speed. 121 STARTING AND OPERATING 122 Note: When the vehicle speed is not within the operational speed range. The system cannot be enabled when RACE mode is active. When the ESC (or ABS or other stability control systems) are operating or have just operated. Warning! Leaving the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) 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 system off when you are not using it. Pausing/Deactivating With the feature enabled (speed not set), button to disable. push the With the feature active (speed set), push the button to pause. The display will show the icon in white with the speed in brackets. To deactivate the feature, push button a second time. the When the ESC system is off. When the Forward Collision Warning system is braking automatically. SET Switch While the accelerator pedal is pressed, the system will not be able to control the distance between the vehicle and the one ahead. In this case, the speed will be determined only by the position of the accelerator pedal. The system will return to normal operation as soon as the accelerator pedal is released. The system cannot be set: Setting The Desired Speed When pressing the brake pedal. The speed can be set from a minimum of 20 mph (30 km/h) to a maximum of 110 mph (180 km/h). When the vehicle reaches the desired speed, push the SET switch upward or downward and release it to activate the system. When the accelerator is released, the vehicle will maintain the set speed automatically. When the brakes are overheated. When the electric park brake has been operated. When either PARK (P), REVERSE (R) or NEUTRAL (N) is engaged. When the engine rpm is above a maximum threshold. In the event of system failure. When the engine is OFF. In case of obstruction of the radar sensor (in this case the bumper area where it is located must be cleaned). If the system is set, the conditions described above also cause a cancellation or deactivation of the system. These situations may vary according to the conditions. Note: The system will not be deactivated when speeds higher than those set are reached by pressing the accelerator pedal above 110 mph (180 km/h). In these situations, the system may not work correctly and it is recommended to deactivate it. To Vary The Speed Setting Increasing Speed Once the system has been activated, you can increase the speed by pushing the SET switch upward. Each time the switch is pushed, the speed increases by 1 mph. By pushing and holding the switch upward, the set speed will increase in increments of 5 mph until the switch is released. Then, the new speed will be set. Decreasing Speed Once the system has been activated, you can decrease the speed by pushing the SET switch downward. Each time the switch is pushed, the speed decreases by 1 mph. By pushing and holding the switch downward, the set speed will decrease in increments of 5 mph until the switch is released. Then, the new speed will be set. Note: Moving the SET switch allows you to adjust the speed according to the selected unit of measurement ("US" or "Metric") set on the Information and Entertainment System (see dedicated supplement). When the unit of measurement is set to Metric, pushing and holding the SET switch will adjust the speed in 10 km/h increments. By keeping the accelerator pedal depressed, the vehicle can continue to accelerate beyond the set speed. In this case, use the SET switch to set the speed to the vehicle’s current speed. When you push the SET button to reduce the speed, the braking system intervenes automatically if the engine brake does not slow the vehicle down sufficiently to reach the set speed. The device holds the set speed uphill and downhill; however a slight variation is entirely normal, particularly on slight inclines. The transmission could shift to a lower gear when driving downhill, or when accelerating. This is normal and necessary to maintain the set speed passes from left-hand traffic to right-hand traffic. In this case, the overtaking assist function is only active when the reference vehicle is overtaken on the right. The additional acceleration is deactivated when the driver uses the right direction indicator and returns to the original lane. Resuming The Speed Once the system has been canceled but not deactivated, to resume a previously set speed, simply push the RES button and remove your foot from the accelerator to recall it. The system will be set to the last stored speed. The system will disable while driving if the brakes overheat. Accelerating When Overtaking When driving with ACC activated and following a vehicle, the system will provide an additional acceleration up to the ACC set speed to assist in passing the vehicle. This additional acceleration is triggered when the driver utilizes the left turn signal and will only be active when passing on the left hand side. The system detects the direction of traffic automatically when the vehicle RES (Resume) Button Before returning to the previously set speed, bring the speed close to that value, then push the RES button and release it. 123 STARTING AND OPERATING Warning! The Resume function should only be used if traffic and road conditions permit. Resuming a set speed that is too high or too low for prevailing traffic and road conditions could cause the vehicle to accelerate or decelerate too sharply for safe operation. Failure to follow these warnings can result in a collision and death or serious personal injury. Setting The Distance Between Vehicles The distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead may be set to one bar (short), two bars (medium), three bars (long), or four bars (maximum). The interval of time with relation to the vehicle ahead remains constant and varies from one second (for the short distance one-bar setting) to two seconds (for the maximum distance four-bar setting). The set distance is shown on the display by a dedicated icon. The setting is four (maximum) the first time the system is used. After the distance has been modified by the driver, the new distance will be stored also after the system is deactivated and reactivated. To Decrease The Distance Push and release the distance button to decrease the distance setting. The distance setting decreases by one bar (shorter) every time the button is pushed. The set speed is held if there are no vehicles ahead. Once the shortest distance has been selected, the next push of the button will set the maximum distance. If a slower vehicle is detected in the same lane, the vehicle icon on the display illuminates from grey to white. The system automatically adjusts the vehicle’s speed to keep the set distance, independently of the set speed. The vehicle holds the set distance until: The vehicle ahead accelerates to a speed higher than the set speed. The vehicle ahead leaves the lane or the detection field of the Adaptive Cruise Control system sensor. The distance setting is changed. The Adaptive Cruise Control system is deactivated/paused. Warning! The maximum breaking applied by the system is limited. The driver may apply the brakes in all cases if needed. Distance Icons The distances from the vehicle ahead are proportional to speed. 124 Distance Button If the system predicts that the braking level is insufficient to hold the set distance, either “BRAKE!” or a dedicated message is displayed to warn the driver of approaching the vehicle ahead. An acoustic signal is also emitted. In this case, it is advised to brake immediately as necessary to hold a safe distance from the vehicle ahead. The driver is responsible for ensuring that there are no pedestrians, other vehicles or objectives along the direction of the vehicle. Failure to comply with these precautions may cause serious accidents and injuries. The driver is fully responsible for holding a safe distance from the vehicle ahead respecting the highway code in force in the respective country. “Stop And Go” Function The “Stop and Go” operating strategy allows you to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle ahead until the vehicle has completely stopped. It will also restart the vehicle automatically if the vehicle ahead drives away within two seconds, otherwise it is necessary to press the accelerator pedal or push the RES button to restart. Warning! When the ACC system is resumed, the driver must ensure that there are no pedestrians, vehicles or objects in the path of the vehicle. Failure to follow these warnings can result in a collision and death or serious personal injury. Deactivation The system is deactivated and the set speed is canceled if: The button on the Adaptive Cruise Control is pushed (with the system enabled or paused). The ignition is cycled to STOP. RACE mode is activated. The system is canceled (the set speed and distance are stored): When the system is paused (refer to the “Activation / Deactivation” section). When the conditions shown in the “Setting The Desired Speed” section occur. Limited Operation Warning If the dedicated message is shown on the display, a condition limiting the Adaptive Cruise Control operation may have occurred. This could be due to an obstruction of the vehicle’s sensor or camera. It could also be due to a fault in the system. If an obstruction is detected, clean the area of the windshield opposite the interior rear view mirror, where the camera is located, as well as the area of the front bumper where the sensor is located. Then check that the message has disappeared. When the conditions limiting the system functions end, normal operation will resume. Should the fault persist, contact an authorized dealer. Precautions While Driving The system may not work correctly in some driving conditions (see below). The driver must control the vehicle at all times. Vehicle Not Aligned The system may not detect a vehicle traveling in the same lane, in the same direction, but is not aligned. It also may not detect a vehicle which is cutting in from a side lane. Sufficient distance from the vehicles ahead may not be guaranteed in these cases. The non-aligned vehicle can weave in and out of the driving lane causing the vehicle to brake or accelerate unexpectedly. 125 STARTING AND OPERATING Steering And Curves Driving on curves with the system set could limit speed and acceleration to guarantee vehicle stability, even if no vehicles are detected ahead. When leaving the curve, the system resets the previously set speed. Using The System On Slopes When driving on roads with a variable incline, the system may not detect the presence of a vehicle in the lane. System performance could be limited according to speed, load, traffic conditions and steep slopes. Small Vehicles Some narrow vehicles (e.g. bicycles and motorcycles) traveling near the outer edges of the lane or which enter the lane from curb side are not detected until they are fully in the lane. Lane Change The system may not detect the presence of a vehicle until it is fully in your lane. Small Vehicles Steering And Curves Note: In cases of narrow curves, the performance of the system could be limited. In this case, it is advisable to deactivate the system. The system only limits the speed DURING a bend and not BEFORE it. 126 Lane Change In this case, sufficient distance from the vehicle which is changing lanes may not be guaranteed. It is advisable to pay the utmost attention at all times and be always ready to apply the brakes if needed. Sufficient distance from the vehicles ahead may not be guaranteed in these cases. Stationary Objects And Vehicles The system cannot detect the presence of stationary vehicles or objects. For example, the system will not operate if the vehicle ahead leaves the lane and a vehicle ahead of that one is stationary in that lane. Pay the utmost attention at all times and be always ready to apply the brakes if needed. Objects And Vehicles Moving In Opposite Or Crosswise Direction The system cannot detect the presence of objects or vehicles traveling in opposite or crosswise directions and consequently will not activate. General Information PARK SENSORS SYSTEM This vehicle has systems that operate on radio frequency that comply with Part 15 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules and with Industry Canada Standards RSSGEN/210/220/310. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: Vehicles With Rear Sensors Only 1. The device may not cause harmful interference. Objects And Vehicles Moving In Opposite Or Crosswise Direction 2. The device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation of the device. Changes or modifications to any of these systems by other than an authorized service facility could void authorization to use this equipment. The parking sensors, located in the rear bumper, detect obstacles while the vehicle is in REVERSE. When an obstacle is detected, an audible alert will sound and visual indications will be displayed on the instrument cluster. System Activation/Deactivation The system, when engaged, is automatically activated by engaging the REVERSE gear, while it is deactivated by engaging another gear. Vehicles With Front And Rear Sensors The parking sensors, located in the front and rear bumpers, detect the presence of any obstacles and warn the driver through an audible signal and visual indications on the instrument cluster. Front Sensor Location 127 STARTING AND OPERATING System Activation/Deactivation When the REVERSE gear is engaged and the system is on, the front and rear sensors are activated. If the vehicle moves from REVERSE to a forward gear, the rear sensors are deactivated, while the front sensors remain active until the speed of 9 mph (15 km/h) is exceeded. Rear Sensor Location Engagement/Disengagement Of Park Sensors System To turn the system off, push the Park Sensors System switch located to the left of the headlight switch. The indicator light within the switch will illuminate when the system is turned off. Pushing the switch a second time will turn the system back on, and the indicator light will turn off. Park Sensors System On/Off Switch Indicator light within switch is off: System activated. Indicator light within switch is on steady: System deactivated. The indicator light within the Park Sensors System switch will also be on in case of system failure. If the switch is pushed with a system failure, the indicator light will flash for approximately five seconds. The light will then stay on constantly. Note: When the ignition is cycled to ON, the Park Sensors System keeps the last state when the engine was stopped (activated or deactivated) in its memory. 128 Note: Some conditions may influence the performance of the Park Sensors System: Reduced sensor sensitivity could be due to the presence of ice, snow, mud, or thick paint on the surface of the sensor. The sensors may detect a false obstacle (echo interference) due to mechanical interference, for example when washing the vehicle or in extreme weather. The signals sent by the sensors can be altered by the presence of ultrasonic systems (e.g. pneumatic brake systems of trucks or pneumatic drills) near the vehicle. System performance can be influenced by the position of the sensors. For example, due to a change in the ride setting (caused by wear to the shock absorbers or suspension), by changing tires, overloading the vehicle or operations that require the vehicle to be lowered. Be sure not to place bumper stickers or other adhesives over the sensors as this will affect system performance. Warning! Drivers must be careful when backing up even when using the Parking Sensor system. Always check carefully behind your vehicle, and be sure to check for pedestrians, animals, other vehicles, obstructions, or blind spots before backing up. You are responsible for the safety of your surroundings and must continue to pay attention while backing up. Failure to do so can result in serious injury or death. Caution! LANE DEPARTURE WARNING (LDW) SYSTEM — IF EQUIPPED Description The Parking Sensor system is only a parking aid and it is unable to recognize every obstacle, including small obstacles. Parking curbs might be temporarily detected or not detected at all. Obstacles located above or below the sensors will not be detected when they are in close proximity The vehicle must be driven slowly when using the Parking Sensor system in order to be able to stop in time when an obstacle is detected. It is recommended that the driver looks over his/her shoulder when using the Parking Sensor system. The Lane Departure Warning system uses a forward looking camera located on the windshield to detect lane markings and measure vehicle position within the lane boundaries. When one or both lane limits are detected and the vehicle passes over one without an activated turn signal, the system emits a visual as well as an audible signal. If the vehicle continues to go beyond the line of the lane without any intervention from the driver, the surpassed line will light up on the display (left or right) to urge the driver to bring the vehicle back into the limits of the lane. Caution! Do not tamper with nor operate on the camera. Do not close the openings in the aesthetic cover located under the interior rear view mirror. In the event of a failure of the camera, contact your authorized dealer. The camera may have limited or absent operation due to weather conditions such as: heavy rain, hail, thick fog, heavy snow, formation of ice layers on the windshield. 129 STARTING AND OPERATING Camera operation may also be compromised by the presence of dust, condensation, dirt or ice on the windshield, by traffic conditions (e.g. vehicles that are driving not aligned with yours, vehicle driving in a transverse or opposite way on the same lane, bend with a small radius of curvature), by road surface conditions and by driving conditions (e.g. off-road driving). Make sure the windshield is always clean. Use specific detergents and clean cloths to avoid scratching the windshield. The camera operation may also be limited or absent in some driving, traffic and road surface conditions. If the windshield must be replaced due to scratches, chipping or breakage, contact exclusively your authorized dealer. Do not replace the windshield on your own. It is advisable to replace the windshield if it is damaged in the area of the camera.

For this reason, Alfa Romeo has planned a series of checks and services for your vehicle at fixed intervals based on distance and time, as described in the Scheduled Servicing Plan. Before each service, it is always necessary to carefully follow the instructions in the Scheduled Servicing Plan (e.g. periodically check level of fluids, tire pressure, etc.). Scheduled Servicing is offered by an authorized dealer according to a set time schedule. If, during each operation, in addition to the ones scheduled, the need arises for further replacements or repairs, these may be carried out with the owner’s explicit consent only. Every month or every 600 miles ( 1,000 km) or before long trips check and, if necessary, top off: Engine coolant level. Brake fluid level (if insufficient, see your authorized dealer as soon as possible). Windshield washer fluid level. Tire inflation pressure and condition. Operation of lighting system (headlights, direction indicators, hazard warning lights, etc.). Operation of windshield washing/wiping system and positioning/wear of wiper blades. Every 2,000 miles ( 3,000 km), check and top off if required: Engine oil level. Note: Scheduled Servicing intervals are required by the Manufacturer. Failure to have them carried out may invalidate the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. You are advised to inform your authorized dealer of any small operating irregularities without waiting for the next service. 156 Heavy Usage Of The Vehicle If the vehicle is used under one of the following conditions: Dusty roads. Short, repeated journeys less than 4 miles (7-8 km) at sub-zero outside temperatures. Engine often idling or driving long distances at low speeds or long periods of inactivity. In the event of a long period of inactivity. The following checks must be carried out more often than indicated in the Scheduled Servicing Plan: Check cleanliness of hood and trunk locks, cleanliness and lubrication of linkage. Visually inspect conditions of: engine, transmission, pipes and hoses (exhaust/fuel system/brakes) and rubber elements (sleeves/bushes, etc.). Check battery charge and battery fluid level (electrolyte). Visually inspect conditions of the accessory drive belts. Check and, if necessary, change engine oil and replace oil filter. Check and, if necessary, replace cabin air filter. Check and, if necessary, replace air cleaner. Severe Duty All Models Change Engine Oil at 4,000 miles (6,500 km) if the vehicle is operated in a dusty and off-road environment or is operated predominately at idle or only very low engine RPM’s. This type of vehicle use is considered Severe Duty. 150 240 140 224 130 208 120 Thousands of kilometers 192 110 10 11 12 13 14 15 176 100 9 160 90 8 144 80 7 128 70 6 112 60 5 96 50 4 80 40 3 64 30 2 48 20 1 32 Years 16 Thousands of miles 10 Maintenance Plan (2.9 V6 Engine) Check battery charge status with the proper instrument. ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● Check tire condition/wear and adjust pressure, if necessary.

Check on the display using the 6 notches that the oil level is between the MIN and MAX level: 1 notch MIN level, 6 notches MAX level. If the oil level is close to or below the MIN mark, add oil gradually through the filler, (refer to “Top-up and oil level indication update on display” in this section) considering that each notch shown on the display corresponds to approximately 8.8 fl oz (250 ml). The oil level can also be checked manually on 2.9L Quadrifoglio models. Caution! Make sure not to add too much oil when topping off the engine. Engine oil in excess may damage the engine. Have the vehicle checked. Never exceed the MAX level when topping off engine oil. It is advisable to check the oil level in intermediate steps using the oil dipstick (2.9L Quadrifoglio Only). Caution! The oil level is not refreshed immediately on the display after topping off. Consequently, wait for the oil level to be refreshed on the display and follow the procedure below. Note: Always reinstall the oil cap and tighten to proper torque whenever it is removed to add oil to engine. Never run the engine with cap removed this could cause oil to leak from engine. Manual oil level checking procedure — 2.9L Quadrifoglio Check that the oil level is between the MIN and MAX marks on dipstick, clean it with a lint-free cloth and reinsert it. Extract the dipstick again and check that the level is between the MIN and MAX marks. Top-up and oil level indication update on display If a engine oil top-off is needed, in order to ensure the correct indication of the oil level on the display, leave the car on flat ground with the engine running for approximately 5 minutes (temperature higher than 176°F (80°C)) and shut the engine off then proceed with the process below: 2.0T 4 MAir — start the engine again and idle it for about five minutes. 2.9L Quadrifoglio — Wait for five minutes, turn the ignition to the ON mode without starting the engine and wait for a few seconds. Note: If you have added the specified amount of oil and the indicator is not reading “Full”, please contact you authorized dealer. Warning! If the engine oil is being topped up, wait for the engine to cool down before loosening the filler cap, particularly for vehicles with aluminium cap (if equipped). WARNING: risk of burns! Caution! The oil level must never exceed the MAX mark. If the MAX mark is exceeded MAX (last notch on the right turns red) after the fill-up, go to your authorized dealer as soon as possible to have the oil in excess removed. Do not add oil with specifications different from those of the oil already in the engine. Used engine oil and oil filters contain substances which are harmful to the environment. To change the oil and filters, we advise you to contact your authorized dealer. 165 SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE Engine Coolant Fluid If the level is too low, unscrew the cap of reservoir and add the fluid described in the "Technical Specifications" chapter. Washer Fluid For Windshield/ Headlights The windshield and headlights washer fluid reservoir has a telescopic filler. If the level is too low, remove reservoir cap and lift the filler. Then, add the fluid described in the "Technical Specifications" chapter. Note: The headlight washing system will not work if the liquid level is low (as indicated by the symbol on the instrument cluster display). The windshield washer will keep working. On vehicles equipped with headlight washers, if equipped, there is a reference notch on the dipstick: ONLY the windshield/rear window washer operates with the level below this reference. Brake Fluid Check that the fluid is at the maximum level. If the fluid level in the tank is low, contact your authorized dealer to have the system checked. 166 Automatic Transmission Activation System Oil The transmission control oil level should only be checked at your authorized dealer. Useful Advice For Extending The Life Of Your Battery To avoid draining your battery and make it last longer, observe the following instructions: When you park the car, ensure that the doors and trunk are closed properly to prevent any lights from remaining on inside the passenger's compartment. Do not keep accessories (e.g. radio, hazard warning lights, etc.) switched on for a long time when the engine is not running. Before performing any operation on the electrical system, disconnect the negative battery cable. If you wish to install electrical accessories after purchasing the car that require permanent electrical supply (e.g. alarm, etc.), or accessories which influence the electrical supply requirements, contact your authorized dealer, whose qualified staff will evaluate the overall electrical consumption. Caution! If the charge level remains under 50% for a long time, the battery may be damaged by sulphation, reducing its capacity and efficiency at start the vehicle. The battery is also more prone to the risk of freezing (at temperatures as high as 14°F (-10°C). Note: After the battery is disconnected, the steering must be initialized. The warning light on the instrument panel switches on to indicate this. To carry out this procedure, simply turn the steering wheel all the way from one end to the other, and then turn it back to the central position. Battery The battery does not require the electrolyte to be topped up with distilled water. A periodic check carried out at an authorized dealer, however, is necessary to check efficiency. Follow the battery manufacturer's instructions for maintenance. Replacing The Battery If necessary, replace the battery with another original battery with the same specifications. Follow the battery manufacturer’s instructions for maintenance. BATTERY RECHARGING Warning! Battery acid is a corrosive solution and can burn or even blind you. Do not allow battery acid to contact your eyes, skin, or clothing. Do not lean over a battery when attaching clamps. If acid splashes in eyes or on skin, flush the area immediately with large amounts of water. Refer to “Jump Starting” in “In Case Of Emergency” for further information. Battery gas is flammable and explosive. Keep flame or sparks away from the battery. Do not use a booster battery or any other booster source with an output greater than 12 Volts. Do not allow cable clamps to touch each other. Battery posts, terminals, and related accessories contain lead and lead compounds. Wash hands after handling. Note: It will not be possible to open the trunk with a key or by pressing the button in the passenger compartment when the battery is disconnected. So, always position the manual trunk opening strap on the trunk lock before disconnecting the battery. The procedure is described in the "Storing The Vehicle" paragraph in this chapter. Important Notes Warning! You can recharge the battery without disconnecting the wires of the vehicle's electrical system. To reach the battery, remove the access panel inside the trunk. Never charge or recharge a frozen battery: it may explode because of the nitrogen trapped inside the ice crystals. At all times while charging or recharging the battery, make sure that any sparks or open flames are kept sufficiently far away from the battery. Note: Before using the charging device, always make sure that it is appropriate for the installed battery, with constant voltage (below 14.8 V) and low amperage (maximum 15 A). Recharge the battery in a well ventilated environment. Before using any devices to charge or to maintain the charge of the battery, carefully follow the instructions provided with the device in order to properly and safely connect it to the car battery. Battery Access Panel Remove the protective cover and connect the positive cable terminal of the charger (usually red) to the positive terminal (+) of the battery.

Turn the charger on and follow the instructions on the user's manual to completely recharge the battery. 2. When the battery is charged, turn the charger off before disconnecting it from the battery. 3. Disconnect the black cable terminal of the battery charger and then the red cable terminal. Battery 1 — Protective Cover 2 — Negative Post (Nut) The vehicle is equipped with an IBS (Intelligent Battery Sensor), which is able to measure the charge and discharge voltage and calculate the charge level and the general condition of the battery. The sensor is placed next to the negative terminal (-) of the battery. For a correct charge/discharge procedure, the charge voltage must go through the IBS sensor. 4. Refit the protective cover of the positive terminal of the battery and the access cover to the battery compartment. Note: If a "quick-type" battery charger is used with the battery fitted on the vehicle, before connecting it disconnect both cables of the battery itself. Do not use a "quick-type" battery charger to provide the starting voltage. DEALER SERVICE The following pages contain instructions on the required maintenance from the technical personnel who designed the vehicle. In addition to these specific maintenance instructions specified for routine scheduled servicing, there are other components which may require periodic maintenance or replacement over the vehicle’s life cycle. Air Conditioning System Maintenance To ensure the best possible performance, the air conditioning system must be checked and undergo maintenance at an authorized dealer at the beginning of the summer. Windshield Wiper Raising The Windshield Wiper Blades ("Service Position" Function) The "service position" function allows the driver to replace the windshield wiper blades more easily. It is also recommended to activate this function when it is snowing and to make it easier to remove any dirt deposits in the area where the blades are normally positioned, when washing. Activation Of The Function To activate this function disable the windshield wiper before setting the ignition device to STOP. This function can only be activated within 2 minutes of cycling the ignition to STOP. To activate this function, move the lever upwards for at least three seconds. If, after using the function, the ignition is set back to ON with the blades in a position other than rest position (at the base of the windshield), they will only return to rest position following a command given using the stalk (stalk upwards, into unstable position) or when a speed of 3 mph (5 km/h) is exceeded. Replacing The Windshield Wiper Blades Proceed as follows: 1. Raise the wiper arm, press tab of the attachment spring and remove the blade from the arm. 3. Lower the wiper arm onto the windshield. Note: Do not operate the windshield wiper with the blades lifted from the windshield. Windshield Washer The window washer nozzles are fixed. If there is no jet of fluid, first check that there is fluid in the reservoir (see paragraph “Engine Compartment” in this chapter). Then check that the nozzle holes are not clogged; use a needle to unblock them if necessary. Windshield Wiper Stalk Function Deactivation The function is deactivated if: More than two minutes passes before cycling the ignition to the STOP position after having raised the lever and putting the wipers into service position. The ignition is cycled to the ON position, and the windshield wiper control is used. Wiper Release Tab 2. Fit the new blade, inserting the tab in the dedicated housing in the arm and checking that it is locked. 169 SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE RAISING THE VEHICLE TIRES If the vehicle requires lifting, visit an authorized dealer which is equipped with shop jacks or jack arms.

Tires with white sidewalls will have the full TIN, including the date code, located on the white sidewall side of the tire. Look for the TIN on the outboard side of black sidewall tires as mounted on the vehicle. If the TIN is not found on the outboard side, then you will find it on the inboard side of the tire. EXAMPLE: DOT MA L9 ABCD 0301 DOT = Department of Transportation This symbol certifies that the tire is in compliance with the U.S. Department of Transportation tire safety standards and is approved for highway use MA = Code representing the tire manufacturing location (two digits) L9 = Code representing the tire size (two digits) ABCD = Code used by the tire manufacturer (one to four digits) 03 = Number representing the week in which the tire was manufactured (two digits) 03 means the 3rd week 01 = Number representing the year in which the tire was manufactured (two digits) 01 means the year 2001 Prior to July 2000, tire manufacturers were only required to have one number to represent the year in which the tire was manufactured. Example: 031 could represent the 3rd week of 1981 or 1991 172 Tire Terminology And Definitions Term B-Pillar Definition The vehicle B-Pillar is the structural member of the body located behind the front door. Cold Tire Inflation Pressure Cold tire inflation pressure is defined as the tire pressure after the vehicle has not been driven for at least three hours, or driven less than 1 mile (1.6 km) after sitting for a minimum of three hours. Inflation pressure is measured in units of PSI (pounds per square inch) or kPa (kilopascals). Maximum Inflation Pressure The maximum inflation pressure is the maximum permissible cold tire inflation pressure for this tire. The maximum inflation pressure is molded into the sidewall. Recommended Cold Tire Inflation Pressure Tire Placard Vehicle manufacturer's recommended cold tire inflation pressure as shown on the tire placard. A label permanently attached to the vehicle describing the vehicle’s loading capacity, the original equipment tire sizes and the recommended cold tire inflation pressures. Tire Loading And Tire Pressure Note: The proper cold tire inflation pressure is listed on the driver’s side B-Pillar or the rear edge of the driver's side door. Check the inflation pressure of each tire, including the spare tire (if equipped), at least monthly and inflate to the recommended pressure for your vehicle. Example Tire Placard Location (Door) Example Tire Placard Location (B-Pillar) 173 SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE Tire And Loading Information Placard Note: Tire And Loading Information Placard This placard tells you important information about the: 1. Number of people that can be carried in the vehicle. 2. Total weight your vehicle can carry. 3. Tire size designed for your vehicle. 4. Cold tire inflation pressures for the front, rear, and spare tires. Loading The vehicle maximum load on the tire must not exceed the load carrying capacity of the tire on your vehicle. You will not exceed the tire's load carrying capacity if you adhere to the loading conditions, tire size, and cold tire 174 inflation pressures specified on the Tire and Loading Information placard in “Vehicle Loading” in the “Starting And Operating” section of this manual. Under a maximum loaded vehicle condition, gross axle weight ratings (GAWRs) for the front and rear axles must not be exceeded. For further information on GAWRs, vehicle loading, and trailer towing, refer to “Vehicle Loading” in the “Starting And Operating” section of this manual. To determine the maximum loading conditions of your vehicle, locate the statement “The combined weight of occupants and cargo should never exceed XXX kg or XXX lbs” on the Tire and Loading Information placard. The combined weight of occupants, cargo/luggage and trailer tongue weight (if applicable) should never exceed the weight referenced here. Steps For Determining Correct Load Limit— (1) Locate the statement “The combined weight of occupants and cargo should never exceed XXX kg or XXX lbs.” on your vehicle's placard. (2) Determine the combined weight of the driver and passengers that will be riding in your vehicle. (3) Subtract the combined weight of the driver and passengers from XXX kg or XXX lbs. (4) The resulting figure equals the available amount of cargo and luggage load capacity. For example, if “XXX” amount equals 1400 lbs. and there will be five 150 lb passengers in your vehicle, the amount of available cargo and luggage load capacity is 650 lbs. (1400-750 (5x150) = 650 lbs.) (5) Determine the combined weight of luggage and cargo being loaded on the vehicle. That weight may not safely exceed the available cargo and luggage load capacity calculated in Step 4. (6) If your vehicle will be towing a trailer, load from your trailer will be transferred to your vehicle. Consult this manual to determine how this reduces the available cargo and luggage load capacity of your vehicle. Metric Example For Load Limit For example, if “XXX” amount equals 635 kg and there will be five 68 kg passengers in your vehicle, the amount of available cargo and luggage load capacity is 295 kg (635-340 (5x68) = 295 kg) as shown in step 4. Note: If your vehicle will be towing a trailer, load from your trailer will be transferred to your vehicle. The following table shows examples on how to calculate total load, cargo/luggage, and towing capacities of your vehicle with varying seating configurations and number and size of occupants. This table is for illustration purposes only and may not be accurate for the seating and load carry capacity of your vehicle. For the following example, the combined weight of occupants and cargo should never exceed 865 lbs (392 kg). 175 SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE 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. Tires — General Information Tire Pressure Proper tire inflation pressure is essential to the safe and satisfactory operation of your vehicle. Four primary areas are affected by improper tire pressure: Safety and Vehicle Stability Economy Tread Wear Overinflated or underinflated tires can affect vehicle handling and can fail suddenly, resulting in loss of vehicle control. Unequal tire pressures can cause steering problems. You could lose control of your vehicle. Unequal tire pressures from one side of the vehicle to the other can cause the vehicle to drift to the right or left. Always drive with each tire inflated to the recommended cold tire inflation pressure. Both under-inflation and over-inflation affect the stability of the vehicle and can produce a feeling of sluggish response or over responsiveness in the steering. Note: Ride Comfort Safety Warning! Improperly inflated tires are dangerous and can cause collisions. Underinflation increases tire flexing and can result in overheating and tire failure. 176 Overinflation reduces a tire's ability to cushion shock. Objects on the road and chuckholes can cause damage that result in tire failure. Unequal tire pressures from side to side may cause erratic and unpredictable steering response. Unequal tire pressure from side to side may cause the vehicle to drift left or right. Fuel Economy Underinflated tires will increase tire rolling resistance resulting in higher fuel consumption. Tread Wear Improper cold tire inflation pressures can cause abnormal wear patterns and reduced tread life, resulting in the need for earlier tire replacement. Ride Comfort And Vehicle Stability Proper tire inflation contributes to a comfortable ride. Over-inflation produces a jarring and uncomfortable ride. Tire Inflation Pressures The proper cold tire inflation pressure is listed on the driver's side B-Pillar or rear edge of the driver's side door. At least once a month: Check and adjust tire pressure with a good quality pocket-type pressure gauge. Do not make a visual judgement when determining proper inflation. Tires may look properly inflated even when they are under-inflated. Inspect tires for signs of tire wear or visible damage. Caution! After inspecting or adjusting the tire pressure, always reinstall the valve stem cap. This will prevent moisture and dirt from entering the valve stem, which could damage the valve stem. Inflation pressures specified on the placard are always “cold tire inflation pressure”. Cold tire inflation pressure is defined as the tire pressure after the vehicle has not been driven for at least three hours, or driven less than 1 mile (1.6 km) after sitting for a minimum of three hours. The cold tire inflation pressure must not exceed the maximum inflation pressure molded into the tire sidewall. Check tire pressures more often if subject to a wide range of outdoor temperatures, as tire pressures vary with temperature changes. 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 = 68°F (20°C) and the outside temperature = 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. Tire pressure may increase from 2 to 6 psi (13 to 40 kPa) during operation. DO NOT reduce this normal pressure build up or your tire pressure will be too low. Tire Pressures For High Speed Operation The manufacturer advocates driving at safe speeds and within posted speed limits. Where speed limits or conditions are such that the vehicle can be driven at high speeds, maintaining correct tire inflation pressure is very important. Increased tire pressure and reduced vehicle loading may be required for high-speed vehicle operation. Refer to your authorized tire dealer or original equipment vehicle dealer for recommended safe operating speeds, loading and cold tire inflation pressures. Warning! High speed driving with your vehicle under maximum load is dangerous. The added strain on your tires could cause them to fail. You could have a serious collision. Do not drive a vehicle loaded to the maximum capacity at continuous speeds above 75 mph (120 km/h). Radial Ply Tires Warning! Combining radial ply tires with other types of tires on your vehicle will cause your vehicle to handle poorly. The instability could cause a collision. Always use radial ply tires in sets of four. Never combine them with other types of tires. Tire Repair If your tire becomes damaged, it may be repaired if it meets the following criteria: The tire has not been driven on when flat. The damage is only on the tread section of your tire (sidewall damage is not repairable). The puncture is no greater than a ¼ of an inch (6 mm). Consult an authorized tire dealer for tire repairs and additional information. Damaged Run Flat tires, or Run Flat tires that have experienced a loss of pressure should be replaced immediately with another Run Flat tire of identical size and service description (Load Index and Speed Symbol). 177 SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE Run Flat Tires — If Equipped Run Flat tires allow you the capability to drive 50 miles (80 km) at 50 mph (80 km/h) after a rapid loss of inflation pressure. This rapid loss of inflation is referred to as the Run Flat mode. A Run Flat mode occurs when the tire inflation pressure is of/or below 14 psi (96 kPa). Once a Run Flat tire reaches the run flat mode it has limited driving capabilities and needs to be replaced immediately. A Run Flat tire is not repairable. It is not recommended driving a vehicle loaded at full capacity or to tow a trailer while a tire is in the run flat mode. See the tire pressure monitoring section for more information. 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) for more than 30 seconds continuously when you are stuck, and do not let anyone near a spinning wheel, no matter what the speed. Tread Wear Indicators Tread wear indicators are in the original equipment tires to help you in determining when your tires should be replaced. Tire Spinning When stuck in mud, sand, snow, or ice conditions, do not spin your vehicle's wheels above 30 mph (48 km/h) or for longer than 30 seconds continuously without stopping. Life Of Tire The service life of a tire is dependent upon varying factors including, but not limited to: Driving style. Tire pressure - Improper cold tire inflation pressures can cause uneven wear patterns to develop across the tire tread. These abnormal wear patterns will reduce tread life, resulting in the need for earlier tire replacement. Distance driven. Tire Tread 1 — Worn Tire 2 — New Tire 178 These indicators are molded into the bottom of the tread grooves. They will appear as bands when the tread depth becomes a 1/16 of an inch (1.6 mm). When the tread is worn to the tread wear indicators, the tire should be replaced. Refer to “Replacement Tires” in this section for further information. Performance tires, tires with a speed rating of V or higher, and Summer tires typically have a reduced tread life. Rotation of these tires per the vehicle scheduled maintenance is highly recommended. Warning! Tires and the spare tire should be replaced after six years, regardless of the remaining tread. Failure to follow this warning can result in sudden tire failure. You could lose control and have a collision resulting in serious injury or death. Keep dismounted tires in a cool, dry place with as little exposure to light as possible. Protect tires from contact with oil, grease, and gasoline. Replacement Tires The tires on your new vehicle provide a balance of many characteristics. They should be inspected regularly for wear and correct cold tire inflation pressures. The manufacturer strongly recommends that you use tires equivalent to the originals in size, quality and performance when replacement is needed. Refer to the paragraph on “Tread Wear Indicators” in this section. Refer to the Tire and Loading Information placard or the Vehicle Certification Label for the size designation of your tire. The Load Index and Speed Symbol for your tire will be found on the original equipment tire sidewall. See the Tire Sizing Chart example found in the “Tire Safety Information” section of this manual for more information relating to the Load Index and Speed Symbol of a tire. It is recommended to replace the two front tires or two rear tires as a pair. Replacing just one tire can seriously affect your vehicle’s handling. If you ever replace a wheel, make sure that the wheel’s specifications match those of the original wheels. It is recommended you contact your authorized tire dealer or original equipment dealer with any questions you may have on tire specifications or capability. Failure to use equivalent replacement tires may adversely affect the safety, handling, and ride of your vehicle. Warning! Do not use a tire, wheel size, load rating, or speed rating other than that specified for your vehicle. Some combinations of unapproved tires and wheels may change suspension dimensions and performance characteristics, resulting in changes to steering, handling, and braking of your vehicle. This can cause unpredictable handling and stress to steering and suspension components. You could lose control and have a collision resulting in serious injury or death. Use only the tire and wheel sizes with load ratings approved for your vehicle. Never use a tire with a smaller load index or capacity, other than what was originally equipped on your vehicle. Using a tire with a smaller load index could result in tire overloading and failure. You could lose control and have a collision. Failure to equip your vehicle with tires having adequate speed capability can result in sudden tire failure and loss of vehicle control. Caution! Replacing original tires with tires of a different size may result in false speedometer and odometer readings. Spare Tires — If Equipped Refer to the applicable section in the appropriate chapter in the Owner’s Manual at www.alfaromeousa.com/ owners/owners-service-manual (U.S. Residents) or www.alfaromeo.ca (Canadian Residents) for further information. 179 SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE Note: For vehicles equipped with Tire Service Kit instead of a spare tire, please refer to “Tire Service Kit” in “In Case Of Emergency” in your Owner’s Manual at www.alfaromeousa.com/owners/ owners-service-manual (U.S. Residents) or www.alfaromeo.ca (Canadian Residents) for further information. Caution! Because of the reduced ground clearance, do not take your vehicle through an automatic car wash with a compact or limited use temporary spare installed. Damage to the vehicle may result. Spare Tire Matching Original Equipped Tire And Wheel — If Equipped Your vehicle may be equipped with a spare tire and wheel equivalent in look and function to the original equipment tire and wheel found on the front or rear axle of your vehicle. This spare tire may be used in the tire rotation for your vehicle. If your vehicle has this option, refer to an authorized tire dealer for the recommended tire rotation pattern. Compact Spare Tire — If Equipped 180 The compact spare is for temporary emergency use only. You can identify if your vehicle is equipped with a compact spare by looking at the spare tire description on the Tire and Loading Information Placard located on the driver’s side door opening or on the sidewall of the tire. Compact spare tire descriptions begin with the letter “T” or “S” preceding the size designation. Example: T145/80D18 103M. T, S = Temporary Spare Tire Since this tire has limited tread life, the original equipment tire should be repaired (or replaced) and reinstalled on your vehicle at the first opportunity. Do not install a wheel cover or attempt to mount a conventional tire on the compact spare wheel, since the wheel is designed specifically for the compact spare tire. Do not install more than one compact spare tire and wheel on the vehicle at any given time. Warning! Compact and collapsible spares are for temporary emergency use only. With these spares, do not drive more than 50 mph (80 km/h). Temporary use spares have limited tread life. When the tread is worn to the tread wear indicators, the temporary use spare tire needs to be replaced. Be sure to follow the warnings, which apply to your spare. Failure to do so could result in spare tire failure and loss of vehicle control. Full Size Spare — If Equipped The full size spare is for temporary emergency use only. This tire may look like the originally equipped tire on the front or rear axle of your vehicle, but it is not. This spare tire may have limited tread life. When the tread is worn to the tread wear indicators, the temporary use full size spare tire needs to be replaced. Since it is not the same as your original equipment tire, replace (or repair) the original equipment tire and reinstall on the vehicle at the first opportunity. Limited Use Spare — If Equipped The limited use spare tire is for temporary emergency use only. This tire is identified by a label located on the limited use spare wheel. This label contains the driving limitations for this spare. This tire may look like the original equipped tire on the front or rear axle of your vehicle, but it is not. Installation of this limited use spare tire affects vehicle handling. Since it is not the same as your original equipment tire, replace (or repair) the original equipment tire and reinstall on the vehicle at the first opportunity. Warning! Limited use spares are for emergency use only. Installation of this limited use spare tire affects vehicle handling. With this tire, do not drive more than the speed listed on the limited use spare wheel. Keep inflated to the cold tire inflation pressures listed on your Tire and Loading Information Placard located on the driver’s side B-Pillar or the rear edge of the driver’s side door. Replace (or repair) the original equipment tire at the first opportunity and reinstall it on your vehicle. Failure to do so could result in loss of vehicle control. Wheel And Wheel Trim Care All wheels and wheel trim, especially aluminum and chrome plated wheels, should be cleaned regularly using mild (neutral Ph) soap and water to maintain their luster and to prevent corrosion. Wash wheels with the same soap solution recommended for the body of the vehicle. Your wheels are susceptible to deterioration caused by salt, sodium chloride, magnesium chloride, calcium chloride, etc., and other road chemicals used to melt ice or control dust on dirt roads. Use a soft cloth or sponge and mild soap to wipe away promptly. Do not use harsh chemicals or a stiff brush. They can damage the wheel’s protective coating that helps keep them from corroding and tarnishing. Caution! Avoid products or automatic car washes that use acidic solutions or strong alkaline additives or harsh brushes. Many aftermarket wheel cleaners and automatic car washes may damage the wheel's protective finish. Such damage is not covered by the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Only car wash soap, Mopar Wheel Cleaner or equivalent is recommended. When cleaning extremely dirty wheels including excessive brake dust, care must be taken in the selection of tire and wheel cleaning chemicals and equipment to prevent damage to the wheels. Mopar Wheel Treatment or Mopar Chrome Cleaner or their equivalent is recommended or select a non-abrasive, non-acidic cleaner for aluminum or chrome wheels. Caution! Do not use scouring pads, steel wool, a bristle brush, metal polishes or oven cleaner. These products may damage the wheel's protective finish. Such damage is not covered by the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Only car wash soap, Mopar Wheel Cleaner or equivalent is recommended. Note: If you intend parking or storing your vehicle for an extended period after cleaning the wheels with wheel cleaner, drive your vehicle and apply the brakes to remove the water droplets from the brake components. This activity will remove the red rust on the brake rotors and prevent vehicle vibration when braking. 181 SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE Dark Vapor Chrome, Black Satin Chrome, or Low Gloss Clear Coat Wheels Caution! If your vehicle is equipped with these specialty wheels, DO NOT USE wheel cleaners, abrasives, or polishing compounds. They will permanently damage this finish and such damage is not covered by the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. HAND WASH ONLY USING MILD SOAP AND WATER WITH A SOFT CLOTH. Used on a regular basis; this is all that is required to maintain this finish. Tire Types Warning! All Season Tires — If Equipped All Season tires provide traction for all seasons (Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter). Traction levels may vary between different all season tires. All season tires can be identified by the M+S, M&S, M/S or MS designation on the tire sidewall. Use all season tires only in sets of four; failure to do so may adversely affect the safety and handling of your vehicle. Summer Or Three Season Tires — If Equipped 182 tires, be aware these tires are not designed for Winter or cold driving conditions. Install Winter tires on your vehicle when ambient temperatures are less than 40°F (5°C) or if roads are covered with ice or snow. For more information, contact an authorized dealer. Summer tires do not contain the all season designation or mountain/ snowflake symbol on the tire sidewall. Use Summer tires only in sets of four; failure to do so may adversely affect the safety and handling of your vehicle. Summer tires provide traction in both wet and dry conditions, and are not intended to be driven in snow or on ice. If your vehicle is equipped with Summer Do not use Summer tires in snow/ice conditions. You could lose vehicle control, resulting in severe injury or death. Driving too fast for conditions also creates the possibility of loss of vehicle control. Snow Tires Some areas of the country require the use of snow tires during the Winter. Snow tires can be identified by a “mountain/snowflake” symbol on the tire sidewall. If you need snow tires, select tires equivalent in size and type to the original equipment tires. Use snow tires only in sets of four; failure to do so may adversely affect the safety and handling of your vehicle. Snow tires generally have lower speed ratings than what was originally equipped with your vehicle and should not be operated at sustained speeds over 75 mph (120 km/h). For speeds above 75 mph (120 km/h) refer to original equipment or an authorized tire dealer for recommended safe operating speeds, loading and cold tire inflation pressures. While studded tires improve performance on ice, skid and traction capability on wet or dry surfaces may be poorer than that of non-studded tires. Some states prohibit studded tires; therefore, local laws should be checked before using these tire types. Snow Chains Rear Wheel Drive and All-Wheel Drive Models 9 mm snow chains can be used on all tires with a width equal to or less than 225mm (225/50 R17, 225/45 R18, 225/40 R19). 7 mm chains can be fitted to 255/35 R19 tires. We recommend using snow chains available from your authorized dealer. Note: The snow chains may be applied only to the rear wheel tires. Check the tension of the snow chains after the first few feet/meters have been driven. Using snow chains with tires with non-original dimensions may damage the vehicle. Using different size or type (M+S, snow, etc.) tires between front and rear axle may adversely affect vehicle driveability, with the risk of losing control of the vehicle and resulting accidents. Quadrifoglio Models It is only possible to put chains on the rear 265/35 R19 tire (winter tire size). Avoid using traditional chains as they can damage the braking system if not installed correctly, thereby compromising the vehicles safety. We strongly advise using zero-clearance chains and to use equipment proposed by an authorized dealer. DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION UNIFORM TIRE QUALITY GRADES The following tire grading categories were established by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The specific grade rating assigned by the tire's manufacturer in each category is shown on the sidewall of the tires on your vehicle. All passenger vehicle tires must conform to Federal safety requirements in addition to these grades. Treadwear The Treadwear grade is a comparative rating, based on the wear rate of the tire when tested under controlled conditions on a specified government test course. For example, a tire graded 150 would wear one and one-half times as well on the government course as a tire graded 100. The relative performance of tires depends upon the actual conditions of their use, however, and may depart significantly from the norm due to variations in driving habits, service 183 SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE practices, and differences in road characteristics and climate. Traction Grades The Traction grades, from highest to lowest, are AA, A, B, and C. These grades represent the tire's ability to stop on wet pavement, as measured under controlled conditions on specified government test surfaces of asphalt and concrete. A tire marked C may have poor traction performance. Warning! The traction grade assigned to this tire is based on straight-ahead braking traction tests, and does not include acceleration, cornering, hydroplaning, or peak traction characteristics. 184 Temperature Grades The temperature grades are A (the highest), B, and C, representing the tire's resistance to the generation of heat and its ability to dissipate heat, when tested under controlled conditions on a specified indoor laboratory test wheel. Sustained high temperature can cause the material of the tire to degenerate and reduce tire life, and excessive temperature can lead to sudden tire failure. The grade C corresponds to a level of performance, which all passenger vehicle tires must meet under the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 109. Grades B and A represent higher levels of performance on the laboratory test wheel, than the minimum required by law. Warning! The temperature grade for this tire is established for a tire that is properly inflated and not overloaded. Excessive speed, under-inflation, or excessive loading, either separately or in combination, can cause heat buildup and possible tire failure.

These networks allow your vehicle to send and receive information. This information allows systems and features in your vehicle to function properly. Your vehicle may be equipped with certain security features to reduce the risk of unauthorized and unlawful access to vehicle systems and wireless communications. Vehicle software technology continues to evolve over time, and FCA US LLC, working with its suppliers, evaluates and takes appropriate steps as needed. Similar to a computer or other devices, your vehicle may require software updates to improve the usability and performance of your systems, or to reduce the potential risk of unauthorized and unlawful access to your vehicle systems. The risk of unauthorized and unlawful access to your vehicle systems may still exist, even if the most recent version of vehicle software is installed. Note: Warning! It is not possible to know or to predict all of the possible outcomes if your vehicle’s systems are breached. It may be possible that vehicle systems, including safety related systems, could be impaired or a loss of vehicle control could occur that may result in an accident involving serious injury or death. ONLY insert media (e.g., USB or SD card) into your vehicle if it came from a trusted source. Media of unknown origin could possibly contain malicious software, and if installed in your vehicle, it may increase the possibility for vehicle systems to be breached. As always, if you experience unusual vehicle behavior, take your vehicle to your nearest authorized dealer immediately. FCA US LLC or your dealer may contact you directly regarding software updates. To help further improve vehicle security and minimize the potential risk of a security breach, vehicle owners should: – Only connect and use trusted media devices (e.g. personal mobile phones or USBs). Privacy of any wireless and wired communications cannot be assured. Third parties may unlawfully intercept information and private communications without your consent.

The driver’s primary responsibility is the safe operation of the vehicle. Driving while distracted can result in loss of vehicle control, resulting in a collision and personal injury. FCA US LLC strongly recommends that the driver use extreme caution when using any device or feature that may take their attention off the road. Use of any electrical devices, such as cellular telephones, computers, portable radios, vehicle navigation or other devices, by the driver while the vehicle is moving is dangerous and could lead to a serious collision. Texting while driving is also dangerous and should never be done while the vehicle is moving. If you find yourself unable to devote your full attention to vehicle operation, pull off the road to a safe location and stop your vehicle. Some states or provinces prohibit the use of cellular telephones or texting while driving. It is always the driver’s responsibility to comply with all local laws. If you have any questions about your vehicle or need assistance, please call Alfa Romeo Customer Care at 1 844 253-2872 (U.S.) or 1 800 387-1143 (Canada).

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, Information and Entertainment System Manual found on the website on the back cover of this document and other Warning Labels in your vehicle. Not all features shown in this guide may apply to your vehicle.

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. 18GA-926-AA
