Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Can we attempt our own little bit of analysis perhaps of the regen issue?

Chooke - Laredo - pickup date July (assuming build date May/June?)

Peanut - Laredo - pickup date July (assuming build date May/June?)

Ansmoiz - Overland - pickup date September (assuming build date July?)

I'm discounting Fireball's report because I understand from his WP post, he took delivery of a demo vehicle that had 180kms already on the clock and we know how far demo vehicles are driven (just around the block for however long). I would take his case as being a failure on the part of the dealership and they should have run a regen as part of the pre-delivery checklist just as a precaution.

Who else has had the regen/limp mode failure that I've missed?

Can we attempt to establish some sort of pattern maybe that would perhaps point to a faulty batch of sensors (guessing) or a software glitch (guessing), or something else, over a particular build period?

Is it worth trying to do this - attempt to establish a pattern that is?

Did you find it improved things Wade? What else have you put in?

If you're in the neighbourhood drop in to show off... I promise I'll remember to offer coffee this time.

Cheers,

I remember a fleet of VW's in our business had soot problems early on due to bio Diesel being used. We changed brand of fuel and no problem since. None of them ever threw any codes or went into limp mode, but I remember one in particular expelled noticeably more black exhaust soot. I quizzed our diesel mechanic (not vw mechanic) and he was the one that suggested fuel type, and to stay clear of bio diesel. We did this, and now only use the local Caltex truck stop for all Diesel work vehicles. We still have that fleet, all of which are 2005 model transporters, and I believe the one with the least mileage (approaching 190,000 km) has had the most problems, gearbox and suspension, nothing fuel or engine related. So I guess the question we should be asking is what kind of diesel are we all using.

Correct. Picked up 16 September. Built July 2013. Always used Woolworth/Caltex fuel.

They do run different diesel, Vortex and standard. Some outlets are only Vortex, some are only standard. Ours have always been Vortex, use the Woolworths app to find cheapest outlet from the 3 we pass.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Car build May 2013, mostly use Gull diesel from the local truck depot and sometimes BP. Would never touch bio-diesel.

This is giving a poor impression to non member viewers reading our site with a view to buying a Grand Cherokee. I cannot accept that, with all the JGC MY14's out there that about 1/3 of them are continually going back to dealers for "fix-ups". The work load would be unbearable and the cost to Chrysler Australia destroying the bottom line. Reality must be that this car is basically trouble free. Chooke, you may not trust taking this car offroad. Well with all the reports I am reading here it almost makes one nervous merely driving out of the garage waiting for something to happen. I for one (and SJandL) have had such good runs so far. When does luck run out. I can't afford any more splinters continually touching wood each time I drive.
My experience has been so good so far it is very disappointing reading of the grief this vehicle has caused to others.

For the benefit of prospective buyers monitoring this site is their anyone else out there, other than SJandL and myself that describes this car as FABULOUS?
Had our teething gremlins as well, but now it's great. Love the power, love the economy, love the comfort, just love the car.

Issues we've had:

Cruise Control - Seems to be behaving itself post the N58 recall and Uconnect updates.
Paint issues - Grit in the clear coat in a couple of spots that have been fixed, but am now experiencing the drivers front and rear door are too close where they meet and the paint has chipped off.
Radio reception - A bit iffy most of the time, but the SD card and ripped CDs can fix that easily. Not sure if its the fin aerial or what.
EVIC Display - Went haywire on the wife. Christmas tree effect and no speedometer. Diagnosis was a dead (or dying) anti lock brake module. Module arrived in about 3 weeks all sorted now.

Nothing other than that so am pretty happy with our lot. Have had one DPF Regen display at about 7500kms (now 11500). Did its thing quite happily with the display starting at 80% Full and then dropping in 10% increments until all was squeaky clean again.

No limp mode in this vehicle.

The last 4WD was a KIA Sorento (no DPF on that). Did everything I asked of it including keeping up with the Nissans and Land Rover Discos in the sand. It had more limp home moments than I care to remember and almost drove it back to the dealer to reclaim the previous Holden Bommodore. It was sorted in the end but took from October 2008 to mid 2011 to finally be solved. So the Jeep can't be that bad.

Regards

Adrian
