Owner and Operator Manuals

So....If I understand correctly my new Jeep Overland will NOT include an owner manual? It sounds like lots of people order them....and I want to do so before mine gets here.

Do I need to pay for mine?....and can I get a jump start on getting it now?? I like sitting in the drivers seat and reading about features when I get a new car...NOT A WEEK OR TWO LATER.

BTW....it sounds like a cheesy deal if I need to pay for these manuals after spending over 40k on a new ride.

Advice?

Re: Owner and Operator Manuals

It will come with a DVD and a sort of quickstart guide. Call the 800 number for customer service (after you get the vehicle) and give them your info and they will transfer you elsewhere where you can request everything in print, including the regular manual, uconnect, 430/730, warranty book, etc. Mine were shipped quickly via USPS. Others have received in varying times through UPS or USPS depending. People up in Canada seem to have to wait a little longer than the rest of us.

But they are all free you just have to call. You can always try to get them in advance but until you own it they may try to make you pay.

Re: Owner and Operator Manuals

Oh i forgot,

If you go to jeep.com, click on "for owners" in the top right somewhere, you can download for free all of the manuals as well, no login or anything required. The owners manual is like 50mb or so.

Re: Owner and Operator Manuals

This is Chrysler's method of being green. Since nobody uses the owners manual anymore, they just stopped printing them to save trees.

Now I said "nobody" because we are enthusiasts. We do read the owners manuals.

Normal people do not.

Are you saying were not normal?? As my wife says: These days, NORMAL is just a setting on the washing machine.

I think that it's more like Chrylser's way of saving green.

Re: Owner and Operator Manuals

If I had known these manuals were available for download, I wouldn't have ordered hard copies. My hard copy Owner's Manual is incomplete anyway, it's missing many pages from the Index (A-C only).

I just downloaded all 3 manuals.

Re: Owner and Operator Manuals

I'm real retentive. I keep everything for when I sell my Jeeps (Window Sticker, original mats, manuals, etc.). I ordered the hard copies more for when I sell my Overland...

Oh, and only 4 days from date I ordered manuals to delivery. Not bad...

No. If that was the case they wouldn't be spending MORE on including a quick user guide and DVD.
