After many months of working extremely hard to convince the "hugs & kisses" that the 2014 (or 2015) Jeep Grand Cherokee WILL be much more reliable than our previous 2000 WJ-Limited V8, I'd hate for the DPF issue to crop up with the new JGC.
If the DPF Limp Mode happens to my wife while I'm working interstate, it will not be pretty, and I will be in more trouble than Ned Kelly
To be safe should I go with the HEMI? Apart from a higher fuel usage rate, it isn't hampered by the "apparent" CRD's DPF problem.
Any comments, recommendations or reassurances are greatly appreciated.
Well nearly 12 months on and 550 posts later and it appears that while there are many that don't have the dreaded "limp mode" DPF problem, there are still some that do.
Not sure if I'm willing to take that chance with the Diesel at the moment, but in reality I won't be buying a Grand Cherokee until the new model emerges in 2017, so hopefully this Limp Mode problem will be a thing of the past by then.
Thank you one and all for all of your most welcomed responses to my initial question. I love JeepGarage and all the positive contributors within it
I'll post picks of my new 2017 Grand Cherokee Overland in a few years time. Only time will tell to see if it'll be a Diesel or Petrol model.
Keep up the great work; I love this forum
My wife's new 2015 3.2L KL Cherokee Limited is going extremely well. No issues, dramas, concerns or complaints whatsoever. Plenty of options to enjoy and the bloody thing drives brilliantly too
