Chrysler Group LLC is revolutionizing the owners’ manual, and freeing up room in your glove compartment.
All 2010 model-year Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge vehicles will come with digital manuals, saving 930 tons of paper annually, or the equivalent of 20,000 trees.
Each new vehicle will come with a comprehensive DVD and a small, full-color printed user guide, which highlights the commonly needed information.
“As vehicles have increased in complexity, so has the size of traditional owners’ manuals,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO –Mopar Service, Parts and Customer Care, Chrysler Group LLC. “With this new approach, we are making it much more convenient for customers to find the information they seek.”
The DVD includes the owners’ manual, vehicle and tire warranty information, navigation and entertainment system guides, as well as information on 24-hour towing assistance. Video tutorials also are available for commonly used features, like operating entertainment systems or folding down a Jeep Wrangler soft top.
The printed user guide includes detailed information for basic operating procedures and emergency situations, such as assessing warning lights or changing a tire.
Customers who prefer traditional printed manuals are still able to get them by contacting their dealer or calling customer service.
To learn more about digital manuals, or to take one of the 2010 cars for a test drive, stop by one of the Pomoco locations in Newport News or Hampton, Virginia today.
