2014 JGC EcoDiesel - 5 Month Update

We've had our JGC EcoDiesel for almost five months now. First few months were very frustrating, with the JGC being at the dealership for more than three weeks for the CV boot issue, fit and finish issues and fuel injector problems. Dealer was pleasant to deal with and helpful but still no contact from corporate.

Now that these issues have been sorted out, we've really had a chance to enjoy the JGC. Seats are very comfortable and the Uconnect system is fantastic, in particular the voice recognition. Truck looks great and the diesel engine sounds awesome. Fuel economy is more than 30 mpg on the highway. Amazing for a vehicle this size!

Feeling again like we made the right decision in buying the JGC. That being said, wish corporate would really do a better job with QC out of the factory (still have a few beads of paint and some misaligned trim).

Re: 2014 JGC EcoDiesel - 5 Month Update

We had a misfire that usually happened at stoplights or on cruise control on the highway. The truck would shudder and feel like it was going to stall. First trip to the dealer resulted in no diagnosis since they could not duplicate the problem. A few weeks later, the truck threw a check engine light which the dealer later told me indicated an engine misfire. Jeep corporate told the dealer to do a flow test and it was determined that one of the injectors was defective. Since the injector replacement, haven't experienced any similar problems.

Re: 2014 JGC EcoDiesel - 5 Month Update

It's not unheard of to have a bad injector that fails early. Probably defective from Bosch. Once replaced, you should be good to go.

Glad you are enjoying your ride. It really is an amazing machine despite the issues we've seen.
