panel which develops a hole caused by corrosion.
In addition, outer body panels are covered against holes caused by corrosion up to5 years or 160,000
kilometres,whichever occurs first. An outer body panel is a sheet metal panel which can be seen
while walking around the vehicle, and which is painted body colour.
This warranty applies only to holes caused by corrosion. Cosmetic or surface corrosion (resulting
from stone chips or scratches in the paint, for example) will not be repaired under this warranty.
If corrosion damage is obviously neglected and allowed to worsen until a hole develops, this warranty
will not cover the repair.
Chrysler Canada warrants that your new vehicle was designed, built and equipped to conform at the
time of sale with applicable federal and provincial emissions standards, and that the vehicle is, at the
time of sale, free from defects in material and workmanship which would cause it to fail to conform
to the applicable emission standards within the warranty periods specified. A covered defect is one
which causes your vehicle to fail to meet applicable emission control regulations.
To keep your vehicle operating properly and in conformance with emission regulations, see the
Scheduled Maintenanceinstructions in your Owner’s Manual and herein. Only Chrysler parts
should be used for maintenance and repair of your vehicle’s emission control systems.
You should keep any receipts for maintenance service and pass them on to the next owner of your
vehicle, in case questions arise concerning maintenance. Chrysler Canada has the right to deny
warranty coverage if your vehicle has not been properly maintained, or if repairs are needed because
parts other than Chrysler parts were used; however, denial will not be based on the lack of
maintenance records alone.
Warranty service must be performed by an authorized Chrysler or Dodge Retailer.
If emergency warranty service is required and an authorized retailer is not available, contact Chrysler
Canada Customer Assistance (page 9) and request emission warranty service help.

Any vehicle that is declared to be a total loss by any insurance company, or is rebuilt after being
declared to be a total loss, or is otherwise designated assalvage,scrap,rebuiltor words of similar

Chrysler Canada may restrict the warranty on your vehicle if the vehicle is not properly maintained,
or if it is abused or neglected and the abuse or neglect interferes with the proper functioning of the
vehicle. If the warranty is restricted, coverage may be denied or subject to approval by Chrysler
Canada before repairs are performed.

HOW TO GET SERVICE
Warranty service must be done by an authorized Chrysler or Dodge Retailer. If you move or are
travelling in Canada, warranty service may be requested from any authorized Chrysler Retailer, but
preferably one who sells the same Chrysler or Dodge brand vehicle as yours.
IN THE UNITED STATES(INCLUDING U.S.POSSESSIONS AND TERRITORIES)AND MEXICO:
If you are travelling temporarily in the United States or Mexico, and your vehicle remains registered
in Canada, your Chrysler Canada Warranty will still apply. Service may be requested at any
authorized Chrysler or Dodge Retailer.
IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY OUTSIDE OF NORTH AMERICA:
If you are travelling temporarily outside of North America, and your vehicle remains registered in
Canada, you should take your vehicle to an authorized Chrysler or Dodge Retailer. If the authorized
retailer charges you for repairs which you feel should be covered under your warranty, please get a
detailed receipt for the work done. When your vehicle returns to Canada, contact the Chrysler Canada
Customer Assistance Centre (page 9) for reimbursement consideration. Reimbursement will not be
considered if the vehicle does not return to Canada.
IF YOU MOVE:
If you are moving to another country, be sure to contact the customs department of the destination
country before you move. Vehicle importation rules vary considerably from country to country.
If you are moving to the United States,be sure to also contact the Chrysler Motors Customer
Assistance office at1-800-992-1997to obtain the necessary documentation to register your vehicle
and to determine warranty eligibility in the U.S.
If your vehicle is registered outside of Canada, 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 Canadian Government officials or military personnel on assignment outside of Canada will
continue to be covered by the Basic Warranty.)
OTHER THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW
OPTIONAL SERVICE CONTRACT
Chrysler Canada has a service contract specially designed for most new vehicles, to cover repair costs
beyond your vehicle’s warranty. Protection is available for almost every operating part of your
vehicle, and at reasonable cost.
Chrysler Canada stands fully behind its service contracts. Be sure that the contract you buy is a
genuineChryslerService Contract. We arenotresponsible for other companies’ contracts. See page
24 for details on available service contracts.
Defects or damage to sheet metal, paint, trim and other appearance items are normally found and
corrected during new vehicle inspection. For your protection, if you find any such defect or damage,
you should tell your selling retailer immediately, because if the problem worsens due to use and
exposure, repairs will not be covered by any warranty.
Chrysler Canada and its retailers reserve the right to make changes in vehicles built and/or sold at any
time without incurring any obligations to make the same or similar changes on vehicles which were
built and/or sold previously.
