Re: 2014 diesel production

I will also wait for my Diesel, 'cause I know it'll be worth it. But sooner would be nicer! We've had 3 significant snow storms already. My subaru is awesome in the snow, and runs great, but I was hoping to sell it while it still sells itself. My Birthday is mid December, so maybe I can drive my new Jeep by then ! (?).

Until then I will bask in the irony of knowing that my best friend from High School works as a chemist for California Air Resources Board, and may even be involved in the delay. Now THAT'S a small world!

Mid-November for me.

I can see what he knows, but it sounds like California is now taken care of.

Anybody else let their XM-Serius subscription lapse while waiting on their CRD? I saw no sense in renewing when I would be getting a new vehicle. Doesn't the GC come with a trial subscription? How many months?

Re: 2014 diesel production

Do you think the resent recall has anything to do with the hold up?

The Detroit News is reporting that the automaker is recalling the SUVs to address random warning-light illumination and instrument-cluster blackout. "Engineers discovered an issue in the vehicle's antilock braking system module that affects the instrument cluster display. The issue also has implications for the vehicle's ABS and electronic stability control systems, but Chrysler Group is unaware of any reported problems involving either," the automaker said in a statement.

No. This was asked and answered already... the recalls have nothing to do with the current hold up.

Actually - according to the uconnect website:

RA3 - 6 month trial
RA4 - 12 month trial

I guess that helps justify the extra cost of the NAV if includes an extra 6 mos. Glad I upgraded.

Re: 2014 diesel production

I realize this is a production thread but as most of us are built and in storage...I was wondering what thoughts are on the use of diesel fuel additives? I have allways used them. If there is a more appropriate thread to discuss this please direct me. Thanks!

Re: 2014 diesel production

Might ask friend at CARB what the 12 OBD-II issues were.

As for when, you might be better off checking CNN or FOX.
