I'm certainly not doing the happy dance yet but this vehicle has been as reliable and well built as any vehicle I've ever owned.
This is great! Happy to hear it has been a reliable vehicle for you. Thanks for sharing

Re: Ecodiesels with >50K miles - changes in experience

Is the issue with the CAT isolated to the 2014s? I have a brand new 2015 (September '15 build) and am curious. Thanks.

I do believe so. I have not heard of a single '15 on here that has had to get it's SCR cat replaced. Now that the issue has been elevated to a recall, they have a build date range and it only includes 2014's.

Come to think of it, the elevation to recall is likely in light of the VW debacle. FCA covering their ass as a result of increased diesel emissions scrutiny.

I like it a lot too. Used it extensively at high altitude down gradients hauling my VMI Offroad trailer. Brilliant for twisty, turny roads with lots of ups and downs. Have to pay attention as the steering wheel is rotated on hairpin turns.

Thanks for posting. Those are about the same miles as I drive and since I am behind the wheel so much I want a good road driving, reliable, comfortable vehicle and the diesel allows me to get the mileage I require and go back to a Grand which until a few vehicles ago when I started driving so much has always been my preferred vehicle. I've always been kind of a Jeep guy and kind of want to go back.

Re: Ecodiesels with >50K miles - changes in experience

Dom,

What symptoms did you have? My motor has some clatter at 1500 rpm and a slight harmonic vibration. It almost feels like a loose motor mount. I'm at 63k on a very early 2014 build. It still runs as strong as ever.

I get a weird surging feeling almost as if the torque converter is slipping but it's not. Happens especially when cold. Also while being it in, I started experiencing the stupid 1-2 down shift bump.

Oh and also bad fuel economy. I'm hoping I get it back and it's even worse lol. I think I'm still going to want a newer jeep with another max care vs keep this one and lifetime warranty.

I was towing last week up a hilly section of I287 and I had what felt like a terrible surging issue that changed when I got off the throttle. Once I got it up the hill it went away and didn't come back. I was thinking it's from bad pavement creating this weird sensation. It didn't do it again so I'm hoping I'm ok as I will be doing a lot of towing this year. It did fell as if I lifted it went away some so keeping this in mind.
