Well of course not. They're boring, but that's why their resale values are so high probably. It's no surprise that a Chrysler product has low residuals. Most domestic vehicles don't hold their value very well...

Re: Studder/Skipping?

I just checked the wholesale auction values on the diesel 2014s...for mine with about mid-20's mileage, it's wholesale value is about $28,500...which is about 56% of the MSRP...that's pretty bad for an 18 month old vehicle. I am kind of surprised by this given that traditionally diesel trucks tend to hold value better than gassers...

Not sure whether it's the reliability issues, a Chrysler issue, or what...but I love this truck...right now averaging about 25 mpg in combined driving.

Wow. That is not encouraging!

That said, I'd planned on keeping this Jeep a while. Unless someone was going to pay me a bunch. Guess not. Thankful for MaxCare.

My guess is that if the Jeep had all this EPA-mandated emissions stuff hacked off, a straight pipe in place instead, and the GDE tune on board it would be quite dependable for the long haul.

Right now I'm not surprised the market is jittery. Especially since the EPA viciously mandated that these vehicles disable themselves if the emissions systems malfunction, there could be a lot of expensive repairs in the future to keep these "road worthy" enough to appease our vindictive EPA overlords. Remember, the SCR cats died on a significant number of these vehicles after only ~30k miles... what's in store for these systems by 200k?

I know that the answer for me will be straight pipe and off-road tune if anything goes wrong post Max Care. I intend to get 15 years out of this vehicle, barring catastrophe.

(BTW, anyone else here starting to think that maybe the VW engineers were the good guys in that "emissions cheating" debacle?)

Re: Studder/Skipping?

After 29 days, finally got my Jeep back. Replaced the heads and head gaskets. In the process, unable to remove 2 glow plugs. They were on national backorder. Finally tracked down some in Colorado. Got them installed, then the dealer broke the turbo. Had to order and install the turbo. Thought they had if fixed, then noticed a diesel leak. Ordered a new fuel line. Took a few more days to get. They broke the new fuel line and again, had to order another one. Finally got it back yesterday. Runs great, but not happy about the amount of time it spends in the shop. Almost 2 months in the shop over a 2 year period. Chrysler refuses to buy back the Jeep. Contacted a lawyer, who says we can file a lemon law suit. Was not sure what to do, so I sent an e-mail to a higher up at Chrysler. Got a call. He states he is going to give me a lifetime warranty. I inquired if it was available on the Diesel, and he says he can get it for me. Supposed to contact me again after January 4th. I will see what he has to say before I meet with the lawyer again. I would be happy with a lifetime warranty, as it give a rental car every time it is in the shop. Will update when I know more.

That is pretty much what happened to me. The head replacement went relatively smoothly once they figured out how to actually do it and get all the parts. But they broke other stuff on mine as well and it took 47 days to fix. I also got the "Lifetime" warranty but after reading it, the terms specifically say that diesels are exempt from the plan. So I just sent them a letter asking for a revised warranty that clears up the language or a check for the price of the warranty. Still haven't decided if I am going to keep it at the end of the lease a year from now, but the warranty is a strong push towards keeping it. I want to make sure they will honor it if I ever need it. I tried to lemon law, but apparently VA has an 18 month limit from the purchase date and my trouble started at month 19 so the warranty is all Chrysler was willing to do. However, 4500 miles (75% highway) since replacement and its running well now, so hopefully this is the last of my troubles.... Good luck!

If your "warranty" is a Mopar Maximum Care service contract for mechanical failures, you should be aware that it does not cover DPF or SCR catalyst failure. Those parts are covered by the 8 yr/80k mile emissions warranty, but if we're talking about "lifetime" coverage it's a substantial point.

Then again, if those parts ever fail after the 8/80 warranty you could install an "off road" tune to allow your vehicle to operate error-free (and with improved fuel economy!) without those parts. Depending how how "stock" one wishes for the exhaust to appear, one could probably just hollow out the DPF/cat, otherwise you could use a straight pipe.

Having a "lifetime" $0-deductible Maximum Care policy on a diesel will definitely make you the envy of other owners.
