Your Legal Rights Under FCA International Operations LLC’s Limited Warranties
The warranties contained in this booklet are the only express warranties that FCA International Operations LLC makes for your vehicle. These warranties give you specific legal rights. You may also have other legal rights under applicable law in your country. For example, you may have some implied warranties, depending on the country where your vehicle was sold or is registered.
These implied warranties are limited, to the extent allowed by law, to the time periods covered by the express written warranties contained in this booklet. If you use your vehicle primarily for business or commercial purposes, then these implied warranties do not apply and FCA International Operations LLC completely disclaims them to the extent allowed by law. And the implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose does not apply if your vehicle is used for racing, even if the vehicle is equipped for racing.
Some countries do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitations may not apply.
Incidental And Consequential Damages Not Covered
Your warranties don’t cover any incidental or consequential damages connected with your vehicle’s failure, either while under warranty or afterward.
Examples of such damages include:
- Lost time
- The loss of the use of your vehicle
- The cost of rental vehicles, gasoline, telephone, travel, or lodging
- The loss of personal or commercial property
- The loss of revenue
Some countries do not allow incidental or consequential damages to be excluded or limited, so this exclusion may not apply to you.

Other Terms Of Your Warranties
Exchanged Parts May Be Used In Warranty Repairs
In the interest of customer satisfaction, FCA International Operations LLC may offer exchange service on some vehicle parts. This service is intended to reduce the amount of time your vehicle is not available for your use because of repairs. Parts used in exchange service may be new, remanufactured, reconditioned, or repaired, depending on the part involved.
All exchange parts that might be used meet FCA International Operations LLC standards, and have the same warranties as new parts.
Examples of the kinds of parts that might be serviced in this way are:
- Engine Assemblies
- Transmission Assemblies
- Instrument Cluster Assemblies
- Radios, CD and DVD Players
- Powertrain Control Modules
To help control suspected ozone-depleting agents, applicable law requires the capture, purification, and reuse of automotive air-conditioning refrigerant gases. As a result, a repair to the sealed portion of your air-conditioning system may involve the installation of purified reclaimed refrigerant.
A defect in or damage to the mechanical, electrical, sheetmetal, paint, trim, and other components of your vehicle may have occurred at the factory or while it was being shipped to the dealer.
Such a defect or damage is usually detected and corrected at the factory. In addition, dealers must inspect each vehicle before delivery. They repair any defects or damage detected before the vehicle is delivered to you.
Changes may be made in vehicles sold by FCA International Operations LLC and its dealers at any time without incurring any obligation to make the same or similar changes on vehicles previously built or sold.
Governing Law And Other Terms
All of the warranties are made under Michigan, U.S.A. law, and Michigan law will be used to interpret them. Punitive, exemplary or multiple damages may not be recovered unless applicable law prohibits their disclaimer. No person, including FCA International Operations LLC employees or authorized repairers, may modify or waive any part of these warranties.
How To Get Warranty Service
Where To Take Your Vehicle
A. In Your Country
Warranty service must be done by an authorized repairer. We strongly recommend that you take your vehicle to your selling dealer. He/she knows you and your vehicle best, and is most concerned that you get prompt and high quality service.
B. In A Foreign Country
If you are traveling temporarily outside your country and your vehicle remains registered in your country:
- You should take your vehicle to an authorized repairer. They should give you the same warranty service you receive in your country.
- If the authorized repairer charges you for repairs which you feel should be covered under your warranty, please get a detailed receipt for the work done. Make sure that this receipt lists all warranty repairs and parts that were involved. (This receipt will be similar to the one used by the repairer who normally services your vehicle.)
- When your vehicle returns to your country for reimbursement consideration, you will normally need to provide a copy of the receipt, your vehicle registration and any other relevant documents.
- Reimbursement will not be considered if the vehicle does not return to the country of registration.
C. If You Move
If you move to another country, be sure to contact the Customer Relations and the customs department of the destination country before you move. Vehicle importation rules vary considerably from country to country. You may be required to present documentation of your move to FCA International Operations LLC in order to continue your warranty coverage. You may also be required to obtain documentation from FCA International Operations LLC in order to register your vehicle in your new country.
If you vehicle is registered outside of the country the vehicle was built for and you have not followed the procedure set out above, your vehicle will no longer be eligible for warranty coverage of any kind. (Vehicles registered to United States Government officials or Military personnel on assignment outside of the U.S. will continue to be covered.)
How To Get Towing Service
What to do if your vehicle requires towing due to a defect covered under the Basic Limited Warranty, contact your authorized repairer. Provide your name, vehicle identification number, licence plate number, and your location, including the telephone number from which you are calling. Briefly describe the nature of the problem and answer a few simple questions. *Off-road recover is not covered to vehicle basic warranty!
Emergency Warranty Repairs
If you have an emergency and have to get a warranty repair made by someone other than an authorized repairer, follow the reimbursement procedure.
How To Deal With Warranty Problems
Steps To Take
A. In General
Normally, warranty problems can be resolved by an authorized dealer’s service department. That is why you should always talk to an authorized dealer’s service manager first. But if you are not satisfied with the response to your problem, FCA International Operations LLC recommends that you do the following:
- Step 1: Discuss your problem with the owner or general manager of the authorized dealer.
- Step 2: If an authorized dealer still cannot resolve the problem, contact the FCA US Customer Relations address
B. What FCA International Operations LLC Will Do
Once you have followed the two steps described in section 6.1 A, a FCA International Operations LLC representative at FCA International Operations LLC headquarters will review your situation. If it is something that FCA International Operations LLC can help you with, FCA International Operations LLC will provide your dealer with all the information and assistance necessary to resolve the problem. Even if FCA International Operations LLC cannot help you, FCA International Operations LLC will acknowledge your contact and explain FCA International Operations LLC’s position.
