Ecodiesels with >50K miles - changes in experience

There have been a lot of niggles with the '14 Diesel Jeep mainly around the DEF in the first year or two of ownership. It seems to take cat replacement in most cases, and some other measures including getting used to how much DEF to fill at a time, to get over these.

I am considering buying a Jeep with 50-60K miles on it. The big risk there is that if these niggles persist, I wouldn't have a warranty to back me up.

So two questions:
1. Anyone who experienced all these issues, but saw them go away and stay that way beyond 50K miles, after appropriate fixes? What fixes were needed?

2. Any other new issues that cropped up around the 50K mile mark? The 60K service is a major one with entire suspension etc. being inspected - does any part of the suspension (especially on the air suspension models) need maintenance or give up at that point?

Emissions warranty is 8yr/100K miles. Powertrain warranty is 5yr/60K miles. Bumper to bumper warranty is 3yr/36K miles. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

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

I am just over 100,000 miles on my 2014 Turbodiesel. I had the CAT replacement (under emissions warranty) at 40,000 miles and a transmission re-flash for "shuddering" just after that.

I've experienced NO problems since then. I believe I had to pay out of pocket for the re-flash, maybe $150, but only regular maintenance since then.

I think powertrain is 5/100 for 11-15 and for 16+ it goes to 5/60

It should be clearly stated on your window sticker. Since I ordered mine, my dealer removed it and laminated for me....

44,000 on our 2014 ecodiesel. The cat. replacement is the only problem we've had so far.

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

I'm over 50K, I Deleted the damn Emissions system and got the appropriate TUNE. So far all is well and the only issues I've had for entire ownership history was the emissions. I avg at least 29-30 mpg with 32" duratracs ,sliders, roof rack(with deflector). I cant stress enough how much I thank the GDE tune for my additional peace of mind though( with or without the whole delete ). I would honestly be leary of buying a 50K+ mile CRD that wasn't tuned / deleted due to my concern over soot build up and potential long term effects on cylinder heads etc. just my 2 cents and Im not a paid spokes person just a happy consumer .

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

Based on my experience at 38k miles would buy one over 59k miles no problem.

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

58000 miles and zero issues. Got the GDE tune and couldn't recommend a single product more. Almost not worth getting the jeep if you're going to skimp on the GDE tune
