This made headlines about a year ago, Chrysler id the first manufacture to go green. Your salesperson should have gone over this when you purchased the vehicle. You will be a DVD and most importantly a quick reference guidebook or QRGB. The QRGB has nice colored pictures and has a lot of important data concerning Dash lights,soft top/hard top features and more importantly Fluids/fuses in the back. You can download a free PDF if your old school.
There are a lot of things my sales person should have gone over but didn't; another story for another day. trust me, that will come in 48 hours if the dealership does not resolve the 2-week open issues for both Jeeps I just purchased.
Going green in this instance is just an excuse to cut cost. Yeah I get it the PDF is available, and I downloaded it. However it doesn't help if you are a first time Jeep owner and need a reference on the road or trail will a specific item.
When first Jeep hunting I asked one dealer for a brochure and they said to go on line and responded by saying that Chrysler and most dealers wouldn't be so bad off if they cut out the cost of $20.00 per brochure.
Again, no safety information in the pretty little information guide, just how to turn on the lights. I'm fairly certain that every one driving a car for the past 20 years is familiar with the process of turning on lights but my not know how to lock and unlock their sway bars and differentials for example.
However, my 18 year old son with his first Jeep and first removable hardtop would benefit knowing how to remove and STORE the roof panels. The information to store the panels on the child restraint hooks is only in Owner's manual.
So folks such as my parents, still within the age bracket to buy a car, yet not computer savvy or rarely use a computer will not access the PDF or find a wealth of knowledge such as this forum.
It is lame a vehicle with an MSRP of $22k-$40k does not provide details on the operation.
I'd be cool not knowing how to tune the radio though don't believe you should be required to go online for the proper seatbelt or child seat installation process.
Lastly, I've ben a member of many forums and can't recall ranting about anything on any of them...
