Re: Newb here looking at a 2014 Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel

Does that mean you bought it?
I have an early 14 and with the exception of the cat replacement nothing else. I have not gone to the dealership to have them do the shifter replacement complete with many software updates and some hardware simply because at 45K miles I don't want anything screwed up. I get 20 mpg towing and an honest 28-30 on the hiway.
I love this ride and would not want anything else that was a diesel which is a must for me.

I think since you are at a dealership issues with what is going to break will get a lot more attention quicker than the rest of us and should be a good ride.

Luck of the draw my 2007 BMW was bullletproof for a number of years hit 54K miles and many things failed and needed replaced. I got past that and it is bulletproof again.

Would I buy another JGC diesel? Absolutely one of the best vehicles I have ever owned and I keep mine for a long time 10-12 years on average...

Re: Newb here looking at a 2014 Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel

Did you get an extended warranty and does the extended warranty cover the emissions equipment (not all do)? Maybe you can still ask for that. Honestly I would not have bought a buyback without one. Might as well pay a bit now for future repairs which maybe likely. I did this with a used diesel WK ('07 model) and came out way ahead as it had several issues (alternator, axle, ball joint, struts, turbo and DPF - a total of $8k in repairs and the extended warranty was $2,300).

P1228 Injector Circuit Cylinder 3 Intermittent


If it is a bad injector, its not a difficult job. Also, do they show the mileage when the fuel filters were changed?
You should have seen AT LEAST one fuel filter change on the books.

So you purchased a buy back vehicle and you get a check engine light on your way home from the dealership? I think I would have done a U-turn and got my money back immediately.
