Break in procedure in PDF users guide but not hard copy that came with Jeep

What the heck?

I just looked through the users manual that came with my new Grand Cherokee to find the break in procedure and could not find it. I decided to download the PDF version of the same manual and did a word search and found it within seconds on page 155 in the "Starting and Operation" section. Then I went back to the paper manual and it is missing from the page and index at the front of the starting and operating section.

Is it even in the paper version of the book?

Well I'm off for my first ride in my new Jeep!!!

Chris

Download the PDF of the owners manual which is a lot more comprehensive than the owners guide.

If you call Jeep they will mail you a hard copy of the full owners manual for free for yourr new jeep. There is a website link on here somewhere to request it also.

Thanks, I may take them up on that.

Now I'm wondering why they would supply a car with an abridged owners manual in the glove compartment.

Just put my first 100 miles on my jeep this evening. 200 more miles until the break in is done. I drive them until the wheels fall off so I do try to do the recommended break in.


Thanks,

Chris

I think all automakers are migrating to electronic manuals which seem to be more convenient for most people anyway ... i.e., ability to search like you did.

Same thing the Army did. Transition over to pdf and only give if requested. It saves a tone of money on printing costs to ship out a couple thousand versions versus putting one in each vehicle
