Re: DEF Level at Delivery

Less than 40% at delivery pointed it out to the Service Manager they filled it no hassle.

It's more like 5%. Mine is currently red. I have never seen a low DEF warning, however, which worries me.

Actually, when I looked at it this morning I noticed it is probably at 10% that it turns red. My oil life is at 3% currently and the DEF is at a little more than twice that, both have been red for a couple hundred miles.

I'll take a photo or video when I drive home tonight and post it.

Re: DEF Level at Delivery

I'll chime in... Mine is just under 50% at delivery on saturday. I've notified the dealer, we shall see.

Re: DEF Level at Delivery

I wouldn't fill it up unless you are planning a long trip or a lot of towing. It doesn't use much and it goes bad sitting in your car.

Re: DEF Level at Delivery

In reading up on DEF (this is my first def diesel) I am going to agree with your advice.

Re: DEF Level at Delivery

The dealer did not fill-up the DEF fluid nor did they fill up the tank with Diesel fuel at delivery. They claimed they couldn't find a diesel station, but I personally think they were trying not to spend any money since it was a Chrysler employee purchase. Since this dealer with the exact vehicle i wanted was an hour away, I didn't go back to have the DEF topped off. I waited until the low DEF fluid warning came on before I filled up the DEF fluid on my own.

Re: DEF Level at Delivery

Your dealer has to fill the DEF, as he is paid by Jeep to do this for you. Tell him to check his PDI - the dealer checklist. It says right on there to top off DEF. If it was not topped off on delivery, go back and have them call the regional rep, and they will authorize a fill.

Re: DEF Level at Delivery

If driving minimal miles and living in the south, I would not fill DEF as it degrades in the heat. For summer, especially in Texas where I am, 1/2 full is sufficient.

Re: DEF Level at Delivery

I picked mine up from River Oaks with less than a 1/4 tank of Diesel and a half-tank of DEF.
The GM sent me an email about my buying experience (which was good), but I told him this is the first time in my life I had ever picked up a dealer prepped vehicle new or used that didn't have full tank of fuel in it.... He promptly replied asking me to come in for w fill up. I may take a rain check on the DEF since it's HOT here in Houston.
