Re: parking brake

LOL, there's something ironic about your post with your screen name being "watchful."

Re: parking brake

They're one and the same. Push to set and then push again to release.

Re: parking brake

I must admit that it can get some getting used to for those who are first time owners, the Chrysler Jeep dealers over here spend about 1.5 hours with you in an orientation when you pick your new car up, going over things like the foot park brake and battery location etc, not to mention all the auto this and that, all the best.

Re: parking brake

No sweat! First 300C I bought was the same and it took me awhile to figure it out, too!

Enjoy your Jeep!

My " chrysler jeep " dealer spent 30 sec. and gave me a bad photocopy of 6 pages from the american users manual, learnt most of the stuff in here, should have bought it in NSW

I had to teach the salesperson about the vehicle. When I took delivery, I was handed the keys and that was it.
