Easy! When the money runs out they drop tools and hand the car back. Cynical, I know but we have good reason to be cynical.

Easy, watch your dash cam. All they do is an oil change. Ask someone who has worked in the business

Sorry to hear that, we haven't had a DPF post for a while so thought it was all over.
What is your build date? as a matter of interest.

Perhaps you have been too careful running in your new baby. It needs a good flat to the boards burn up a long steep hill every few thousand k's to keep the DPF clean. The DPF relies on reaching 600C every now and again to burn off the carbon.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Thanks for the support. Its build day is 25/05/2014
It has 36850 km on the clock and myself as the original owner it does plenty of towing and hiway km so it came as a surprise when it went in to limp sack of p.. mode. The dealership were rude on the phone but when face to face had no choice but to be nice. I can be very blunt at times. I did remind the young lady that she wasnt driving stuck at 60km/hr in 3rd for nearly 1 1/2 hrs with no prior warning on the bruce highway. I love my car but hate the lack of respect Jeep shows it owners by its inaction.

Sorry to hear about your issue. Have you had the car serviced at a Jeep dealer, reason I ask in December 2014 they released a fix for this issue. If you haven't been to a dealer it may not have been applied yet.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Actually no i havent. I live more than 1hr away. Also the Jeep dealership is a multi car franchise who have a reputation for f ing up things. But the shop i go to do excellent work and very much care for my car. Staffed by a bunch of petrol heads. I may have to drive to Townsville and get the updates flashed.
I realy dont trust the local dealership to be honest. To the point if they cared about my car why did they only do a manual burn off and not check for flash updates and inform me of them.

They dont just put updates in if the symptoms do not warrant the update.
