Rent a car and take your vacation. It's not worth missing it.

I paid the tow upcharge back to my dealer, it's 5 miles from where I live, not 50 miles like the other dealer.

Vacation involves hooking up the race car trailer and hauling it with us..... yes my wife actually goes along but it costs me a beach vacation to keep her happy. None of the rental agencies allow towing. So no tow vehicle = no vacation.

However, the dealer has now replaced the starter, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I make it 365 miles without incident.

Best of luck with the Jeep and at the track.

Re: Latest victim of no-start problems

Add me to the list of diesel's that won't start. My 2014 would not start last Friday evening (7/15), so I had AAA tow me to the dealer. Originally the tech thought it was the starter, but ruled that out. Then they thought it was the TIPM (bad relay), waited for that part, replaced it, and it still won't start. They just admitted (7/22) that they have no idea what is wrong and that they will start "tracing the wiring". I am left wondering if this will be covered under the warranty or not since I am 40+ K miles. Since they don't know what the problem is, they can't say whether this is part of the powertrain or not. I spent $56K on Jeep's flagship model and in less than three years I am on my third cat-converter, the engine won't start (diesel's last forever!), and the tech has no idea why! When I purchased this vehicle consumer reports had it at the top of their list, but now it is near the bottom. I was looking forward to replacing my wife's 2010 Armada with the upcoming Grand Wagoneer, but I have little faith in the reliability of these vehicles now.

Re: Latest victim of no-start problems

Pski, in my case it was the starter. They replaced it and all has been fine since.

And Kevin from FCA was great in assisting!
