Good to hear. Your issue reminds me of my statistics class where we learned about the bathtub curve and fail rate of a complex item..and a JGC qualifies as such.
Basically any failure should happen early in its life cycle from a defect or misassembly which is why manufacturers have a relative short bumper to bumper warranty. After that period failure should occur once it reaches its end of life...or at least that is what we hope will happen.

So, you should look forward to a long, reliable vehicle going forward.

Hello. I have owned my 14 Eco summit for 2 mths
That "service Def" just came up on my jeep. I have 8600 miles on already. I drive a lot. great suv... However. The dealership is telling me that the Eco def sensors are going bad and it will be in the shop for over a week waiting for new sensor. Thoughts? Anyone else have problem. Again. Very happy with suv. 23-26 mpg in city. 28-31 hwy. smooth ride and great technology. Is this def sensor a big deal?

Not quite, but at about 450 miles yesterday, I got the "shutoff in 200 miles" DEF error. Dealer called me today and said it was a bad DEF system injector. Will have loaner for a few days while they get the part.
