question for 2015 owners

So we've all read of some of the issues experienced by the 2014 owners.... particularily the earlier builds. Wondering how the 2015 owners are making out....have not seen much said about any troubles?

Re: question for 2015 owners

2015 I got is as tight as a claim, straight as an arrow, no wobbles, rattles, noises, more zip than the 2014.
(no idea why)

No mechanical issues, best driving car out of the gate I've had.(and I've had a few)

Paint job makes up for that, it's bad - missed it on delivery

Re: question for 2015 owners

1200kms and evertthing runs perfectly. interior warms up quicker than expected - you can tell the mpgs get significantly better once engine/trans warms up after a couple mins.

Re: question for 2015 owners

Yeah, the 2014 beta testers flushed out the major design problems, namely the cat converter, tranny programming, regen, and def injector issues. Hell, they even have a factory def protector shield on all new vehicles, but I think Dom's is better.

Re: question for 2015 owners

I have a 2015 CRD Limited that I took deliver of in January. I love it. It's an incredible machine.

Have a couple minor issues that will be covered under warranty:

Left rear seatbelt receiver isn't accepting the buckle. Simple fix.

There's a noticeable whiny notice coming from the HVAC when it's running between settings 2-4. Sounds like a bad fan motor. Hopefully it doesn't cause too much more of an issue.

The tranny is doing a little bit of the shutter/fish bite deal but it sounds like that's a simple programming flash and it's done.

Just gotta find the time to take it in to the dealer and get these issues addressed.

A few items to note:

I've got Dom's plate as my Jeep didn't come with the cheap factory plate. I would have gotten Dom's plate anyhow.

The yellow warning stickers on the sun visors are annoying and I wish they weren't there.

There's a ton of chrome on the car but that's all good. I de-badges everything on the machine excluding the JEEP on the rear.

Otherwise, I am very pleased with the vehicle. Incredible. Handles well and is a great daily driver.

Re: question for 2015 owners

54kms on mine. Picked up today and already noticed the climate control is not quite right. That is passanger will get hot air (set around 25deg) and driver is nice and cool. Cycle all the way to min and back up which seems to fix it.
i know all new cars can have some issues so i,m not going to get to concerned yet.

Re: question for 2015 owners

Just turned 1000 miles and all is well. My first diesel and I was skeptical initially. Pretty pleased to date. Mileage is great if the display is correct.

Re: question for 2015 owners

10k miles here - no problems other than a bad LED in the headlight. Only real problem worth mentioning is the finnicky HVAC, but that's almost sure to be bad programming - it just never seems to get the temp I want. Either its too warm or too cold, then the weather outside changes by 5 degrees and it flips. Maybe I'm just used to my superb HVAC from my previous Mercury Sable, but Chrysler has a little more research to do when it comes to the HVAC department.

Re: question for 2015 owners

2700 miles and powertrain is fine except the failed engine air filter. Some loose skid plate bolts, a missing plastic rivet, an unpopped plastic rivet, and a minor paint defect in the roof are all cosmetic issues I found.

Re: question for 2015 owners

RE: Paint issues: Were these paint flaws on GC's before or after the change to the new paint system over this past winter? New vehicle orders were shut down the end of last November and did not start again for some colors until Feb of this year.
