22 September 2009 No Comment

Technology.am (Sept. 22, 2009) — Chrysler Group LLC is the first automaker to provide digital owners’ manuals for its complete lineup of 2010 model-year vehicles.

Chrysler Group LLCBeginning 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.

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 move will save 930 tons of paper on an annual basis. Traditional owners’ manuals may be longer than 500 pages and weigh nearly 4 pounds.

Customers may obtain a traditional printed manual by contacting their dealer or calling customer service.
