Miscellaneous2010 Jeeps Will Save Trees

In a why-didn't-they-think-of-this-sooner move, Chrysler has announced that all 2010 model year vehicles will provide their owner's manuals in digital format - along with a much smaller, 60-80 page, full-color booklet with commonly accessed information.

Chrysler Group LLC is the first automaker to provide digital owners' manuals for its complete lineup of 2010 model-year vehicles. The switch will save 930 tons of paper, or the equivalent of 20,000 trees on an annual basis.

Traditional owners' manuals may be longer than 500 pages and weigh nearly 4 pounds. Beginning next month, each new 2010 Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge vehicle will come with a comprehensive DVD and a full-color printed user guide - most between 60-80 pages - that highlights 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, such as folding down a Jeep Wrangler soft-top, operating the video entertainment system and setting electronic speed control. In addition, owners may search by topic rather than sifting through a 500-page book.

The printed user guide includes photos and diagrams allowing customers to quickly find assistance for emergency situations, such as changing tires, jump-starting a battery or assessing warning lights. The printed guide also covers basic operating procedures for temperature control, windshield wipers, seat adjustment and navigation systems.

What short how-to videos would you like to see on your Jeep manual DVD?

'bout damn time. Like most Wrangler owners, I've left my manual out the rain. They've used some kind of paper that's violently opposed to moisture. Where do I back-order my DVD copy for a 2005LJ?
