Re: 2015 Deliveries?

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

Holy crap, dereed999! Here's hoping for a quick resolution. Get that skid plate on there STAT

Might as well ask the service manager if he can get the tech to put it on when he/she buttons everything back up.

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

So dealer called. Unlikely the plate would have made a difference (maybe, but no sign of impact damage). The injector is leaking. Makes me wonder if the "stuck in inspection" delay several of you got stuck in was because they got a bad batch of injectors and put a hold on more shipments until they could swap out with a new batch or figure out which were bad???

On my side, they will have a new one from the parts warehouse tomorrow. They are 99% sure it's just the injector that's bad and leaking but they have a DEF hose (tank->injector) on (back)order in case it's actually the coupling. Hopefully just the injector will be needed to make the fix since that hose backorder could be painful!

Super happy with the dealer and they went out of their way to get the wife a 2014 GC Limited as a loaner so she's cool. Thank goodness!

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

Dealer sounds like one to stick with. Maybe even bring them donuts when you pick it up. One would think Jeep could have asked their engineers to come up with a more robust DEF injector by now. You know, as in not brittle plastic...

As long as it is a Jeeper Creeper, you should be okay.

Limp mode/unable to drive due to DEF/SCR/CAT issues are serious issues when you do not live near the dealer.
I haven't ordered a 2015 yet. Same concerns. Can't believe they didn't at least put a Def plate on the 2015s. Almost tempted to go hemi with price of gas but I keep wanting the diesel.

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

Congrats docpaul and others that have left inspection purgatory!! I am still there, but supposedly will be out in a few days according to Jeep Customer Care.

Bummer to hear about your DEF troubles dereed999. I am in the same boat as you with the wife. Plus my neighbor kept pushing me to get a Lexus and will for sure say I told you so at any hint of a problem. Getting the extended warranty, but there is still the time factor of taking the car to the dealer. At least the dealer seems to be doing their best to take care of you. Giving you a similar loaner was a nice gesture.

Hope I don't have any initial build/QC issues. I ordered the JGC from a dealer in Houston and need to drive it back to LA. Would be a big PIA if I run into the DEF injector issue on the way home. Plenty of lonely places in the American Southwest...

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

What exactly is the Doms plate everbody seems to be talking about? Where do I get one?

I still have not been able to place my order yet since july due to he CRD hold and now the hold on paint color. Last thing jeep cust service said was Jan 12 to place order. I sure hope so , but maybe the delay is a blessing from some of the things I have read, and hopefully they get these things straightened out.

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

I must admit, I had a very restless night after reading yesterday's forum postings regarding DEF injector failures and all of these ridiculous problems that keep surfacing with this EcoDiesel engine in general. Not good since my 2015 EcoDiesel Summit was only released from the factory yesterday. Now I'm weighing whether taking possession would be a bigger mistake than the nine weeks I may have wasted waiting. My gut feeling at the moment is it would be.

I'm pretty ticked off right now and feeling robbed of the excitement that should come with new vehicle ownership. I too ordered a DEF protection plate from Dom this morning to keep my options open.

crawled underneath for the first time today and its pretty obvious that the injector and hose stick out like a sore thumb.

The "Great GC CRD wait of 2013" was amazing....and well worth it, looking back. I enjoyed the wait with the help of all my forums friends here. Don't know what I would have done otherwise.

I gained valuable inside knowledge of all the JNAP lot names, train shipping routes, schedules, and transit times. I also know the flow of the various production stages and how MOTS/VOTS updates...and doesnt. I can interpret the status codes In MOTS too...LOL! We had some serious analytical horsepower with all the idle minds put together!

All you guys waiting for your 2015's, relax and enjoy. Subscribe to Premium membership here so you can track everything and there will be plenty to do until delivery.

Well, I was in the "Great CRD wait of 2013"... And I will soon be in the 2015 wait as well....had some chronic check engine/ emission issues which have led Chrysler to buy back the vehicle, and I will be ordering the exact same vehicle in the 2015...hands down this is the greatest vehicle I have ever driven (at least until the check engine light came on). Don't look forward to the wait....but I get to keep my 14 model until it arrives which should make it easier!
