Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 2 years ago.

yes,,this is the 2012 2.4

Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 2 years ago.

the caution is no big deal,they put this on everything

Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 2 years ago.

Fastener Caution Caution: Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners, or fastener joint surfaces, unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems. When using fasteners that are threaded directly into plastic, use extreme care not to strip the mating plastic part(s). Use hand tools only, and do not use any kind of impact or power tools. Fastener should be hand tightened, fully seated, and not stripped.
