Cool Minimum ideal build date for 2014?

I'm looking at 2014s to buy and came across some late 2013 up to May 2014 for an ecodiesel. Would there be a minimum build momth i should aim for? Basically want to avoid the gremlins on early builds but either way I'd be getting aome of the recent tsbs done

Thanks

I don't this is really a factor. My Sep. 06, 2013 built one has been just fine.

Depends on whether you want a dealer tech pawing at your headliner to perform the wiring recall.

Or whether you want Selec-Speed instead of just having Hill Descent Control like my December build.

I believe all the EcoDiesels were built after the cutoff for "ACC w/ Stop" rather than just having the "ACC w/ Fiery Death Collision" option.

Anything built after 7/13 . Everything built from 8/13 on has the adaptive cruise with stop, and has had the major issues worked out.

Re: Minimum ideal build date for 2014?

Wasn't there something like Hill Ascent Control added in 2014?

Yes. If you got a later-later build (i.e. well into 2014) you got Selec-Speed instead of just getting hill descent control.

Anyone know the exact date? As a point of reference, my 2/7/14 build does NOT have Select Speed, but my originally ordered 4/14/14 build (I gave up on it when it got stuck in QC) DID have it. So somewhere between 2/7 and 4/14.
