So is the pattern, from those who have had a DPF issue, that it has only happened once bad enough to put them off the road and into the hands of a jeep service centre?

I'm terrified. Having had the dreaded issue once and now planning a big trip towing a large van with my family, how confident can I be? where I'm going, I don't expect there to be many Jeep dealers......

Re: Is DPF issue for 2014 CRD fixed now?

I thought I would do a Google search on Jeep DFP Issues and the Jeepgarage thread was 3rd. I would expect that if they are selling 1200+ JGC cars per month and 60% are CRD , that would mean that 700+ are CRDs sold per month, times 9 months they have been released, would result in over 6,000 cars that could be affected.

If this was a common problem, then I would have expected that we would have a hell of a lot of pissed off owners on here complaining.

While I think this is a serious problem for the poor souls that are affected, I do not think this is "common" with the MY14 CRDs.

I think that we are doing the right thing by seeing if there is a common trend across the owners by diagnosing the driving habits, fuel usage, etc. I am sure we will find a trend, we just need to keep the pressure on JeepAU to sort this out, to avoid tainting this model for future purchasers.

One of my concerns is that there may be a design issue here that may affect more and more MY14s in the future.

Good point. The Pajero DPF issue raised itself far more widely and quickly on the web in 2007/8. (Before it was fixed by a software update). Guess I'm just one of the less fortunate ones to have had the problem.

I think it may be worthwhile asking what brand diesel fuel is being used and whether an additive is being added and what brand. Thoughts??

I've now done 14000km in my CRD Laredo 4-13 build and haven't seen the DPF regen warning. Mostly open road running and includes 4000km caravan towing. Usually use BP fuel and no additives.

Has anyone tried a fast idle say 2000rpm for 15 min to see if it starts a regen?

Well done to those that are correlating the DPF Issue Data at this site. Those affected CRD owners and us prospective Grand Cherokee CRD owners appreciate it.

Has anyone here actually contacted Jeep Australia about this? Who's been putting pressure on them? Would it be worthwhile if we all send JeepAu an e-mail or letter about this DPF issue / concern?

I, and I'm sure others, would like to know where JeepAU are at with this.

Have notice since my DPF issue on Tuesday my fuel consumption has gone thru the roof....currently averaging 10.2l/100km. May only be coincidental. Look forward to flogging it up the freeway to Brisbane on the weekend to see if that changes.

I would if I'd experienced the issue.
