What I don't get is how some people with higher mileage seemed to have escaped this issue. It's tempting to just wait for a code and cross my fingers that it takes a long time.
To reinforce akinney's comment, I am a high mileage driver with 117,000 miles on my 2014, had the SCR replaced at 36,000 and have not had a DEF code since.

I'm sure I'll have one in the morning when I leave the house.

What oil have you used the entire 117,000 miles?

Re: Service DEF system : See Dealer

73500 on my 2014. Had the SCR replaced @ about 50k during the FCA recall. Use about 1 gallon of DEF every 1100 miles. Never fill more than 1/2 tank of DEF at any given. Have to have any trouble codes, although I probably just jinxed myself...

Thanks for that info. I think I'll use up my Pennzoil Ultra Euro. I have (2) full changes left and I just changed 2k miles ago. So almost (3) remain. Was going to sell it and go Rotella T6. Not sure I see a need to.
