Here's a photo. I knew this was a difference between the HEMI® and CRD. It was one of the minor tipping points when I decided to not wait any longer. I would have given it up for the CRD as I knew I was when I placed my original order for the CRD.

I haven't been reading much around here to notice whether they have added Select-speed to the Diesel or not yet. I also don't know if Milous has a date on that.

Re: 2014 diesel production

That closeup helps to remind me, my car really needs a good cleaning. One round trip to Massachusetts from Florida and back and she sure looks dirty up close.

Yes Sir! you have it!...the CRD is suspposed have it now but.....it isnt out yet. I think it will only be a reflash of the computer to add it unless the switch is different and I mean more than just the picture. Thanks for snapping the pic...I knew the Hemi had it....the Hemi with the ORA-II is the only JGC that currently has it!

Re: 2014 diesel production

Does anyone know if there is a newer revision of the inspection checklist that has been created from a lot of past experience? Only one I can find is rev 9. Thanks for all your work going into this list!

Not to minimize the effort that has gone into creating the checklist, but as a matter of practical experience, I found it to be simply too much to look at when I got to the dealer. As I recall I spent nearly a 1/2 hour and only got through the first page at which point the dealership was getting antsy to get my car prepped (they wanted me to see it before they did anything). I ended up then just giving everything a very good eye balling inside and out to get my checkout finished and then rode along while the dealership did their required test drive. I found that I could focus more on looking at the car and asking questions during that drive, and not worrying about driving the car. It worked out nicely. I would suggest narrowing the list down to a more practical list that can be accomplished in 30 minutes plus a test drive. Just my 2 cents....

I totally agree. It took me a full day to go over the checklist when I got home. At the dealer, just do a quick visual inspection. I have not heard of anyone not taking delivery due to the checklist. It you find issues later, bring it to the dealer for repairs.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Not sure if this only happened to me or if it is a way to save money but I now have 700 miles on my Limited and decided to see if the oil was holding up. Popped the hood and noticed that not only was my oil at the minimum line but so were two other other fluid levels. Power steering and Coolant were just at the minimum line and the coolant were probably just below.

No big deal until I decided to go get some to top them off. Coolant is a new formulation that cannot be mixed with any other type and cost 26+ a gallon. Power steering fluid is also expensive got some of that for 23 a pint maybe less. Enough to top it off but crazy expensive and it is not ATF 4 like the older models.

Could not find the right kind of oil and knew about how expensive that was from my prior ownership of TDI's. So much for my joy at how light the maintenance schedule was.

So I would check the levels. All I checked was the exhaust fluid. Shame on me.

Re: 2014 diesel production

I have my list printed but to be honest I plan to just make she is good to go and then do a more complete look when home. I am hanging out in southern Florida today was 75 but has been cold here too.
Excited to go get this Jeep so I can start using it.
Just hoping the fluids are good and I know from Shannon that I will need to get my own diesel and bring back the receipt.
Hoping Brainstormer is able to pick me up at the airport otherwise will take a taxi to River Oaks.
I am sure all the fluids and filter will come down in price once they become more common...

Once I printed out the list, I just tossed it at home and did the usual look around/through when I picked mine up. The less time at a dealership the better.

You're getting closer!
