Re: Consumer Reports, 2014 JGC Limited Diesel

I'll be curious what their take is on the later build. Should frazzle some folks down below that have been flogging the consumer reports thread if it turns out they have few issues as most of us here with newer vehicles are reporting.

Hoping the review of the EcoDiesel will be better than the gas model. Seems that most people in the forums really like the new diesels. Even the article you cite state that it is quickly becoming a CR staff favorite.

Re: Consumer Reports, 2014 JGC Limited Diesel

What is interesting is the DEF line being pinched. I believe that has been a small issue for some owners around here. Maybe it is a learning experience at the factory on how to install this part.
