Question What's this for???????????????

I just got my new 2011 4 dr Unlimited. I'm driving it home doing my normal new vehicle "every button push" and I come across the ECO mode on the trip odometer. I couldn't find anything about it in the user's guide. It shows up after the "trip B" odometer selection. Does anybody know what this for or how to use it. Also, on the EVIC with the eco mileage, temp, DTE, etc... what is the purpose of the timer that you can reset to zero at anytime? That timer isn't a bad omen is it? Thanks for the help.

When the ECO mode is "on" you are driving in a fuel efficient manner. Grab the CD and check out your owners manual. There's lots of good information in there especially regarding the 4WD system. You can also download a copy from Official Jeep Site - 4x4 SUV, Sport Utility Vehicle.

The timer is just a generic timer for seeing how long you're on the road. You can use it for whatever you like.

Congrats on the new vehicle.

If you didn't know already, there's a big difference between the users guide and the owners manual. Make sure you download a copy of the owners manual from the link posted previously.

It's pretty said that they decided to omit a printed copy and take the profits instead. They keep eliminating features (e.g. footwell lights, etc) to save a buck yet the MSRP doesn't go down. On the other hand, the F150's I buy for work keep offering more and more every year yet Ford remained financially stable and now surpass Toyota in sales and quality. Moral: Pencil pushers shouldn't build cars.

Thanks all for the info. This is my first Jeep and I plan on keeping it a long time. I've wanted one for over forty years but could never pull the trigger until now. It is done!

You can get a actual owners manual for free if you are the original owner. I didn't keep the phone #, but I called the Dealer and they gave it to me. Give them a call. I haven't received mine yet, just ordered it Wednesday, should be here any day. There is too much information in an owners manual to not have one. I may download one as well, but I want to keep one in the glove box. Seems pretty cheap on Jeeps part, but sadly most people probably never open the owners manual.
