We just had snow and ice in Minnesota the other day, and I tried and tried to get the Jeep to spin out, but wouldn't (but watched a lot of others spinning out). I live on top of a hill, and there are 2 ways to get up - a short steep hill, or a long gradual hill. A lot of people could not get up the steep hill. I went up and down like there was no ice. No spinning, and no loss of traction. I am most happy with the stock tires so far. The snow wan't deep, but there was a half inch layer of ice on the roads. The ABS is nice and quiet compared to Jeeps I have had in the past, and stop on ice very well. Will post more when we get a bigger snow.

Mine is similar to yours: 303 miles with oil life showing 86%. At delivery is was showing 14 miles and 94%.

At this rate I won't get anywhere near 10,000 miles between changes.

Or close to 3000 miles either. The manual (I think) did say that these might burn/consume some oil in the first few hundred miles and that it was normal. I am wondering if this can simply be attributed to that and that it will maybe stabilize after the first 500 or so? I will check the oil level at the first fill up and top it off if needed.

Made the mistake of trying to wash my new ride this morning when it was 7F outside. The water was freezing on the car faster than I could wipe it off. Oh well. We had some snow a couple nights a go and it got dirty. Oh No! It's supposed to hit 38 on Monday. Shannon and I are going to have a detailing party then in the heated hangar. Should be very exciting:-)

What is it basing the remaining lifetime on? Just the oil level? If that was it you could just add more oil I would think. I thought I read somewhere that it looks at how the car is being driven, temps, etc. and does some kind of calculation.

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

I know with BMW the car looks at RPM, temp, trip time/distance, engine hours, and possibly other factors. I was wondering if it has an early 1st service interval? I didn't see anything about it in the manual but I've already seen quite a lot of things mentioned here that I missed when perusing the various tomes.

They are investigating the issue to see what needs to be done. Had some discussions with a few people about this as I know from experience that these engines do not smell after 300 miles.

I've gotten this twice I think. It literally smells like exhaust is being pumped into the cabin or something. It made my eyes water and I ended up having to crack a window. Both times it happened in prolonged bumper to bumper traffic. Hasn't happened in about a week though, both times happened the first week after picking it up.

Yesterday when going up a pretty steep hill I could hear/feel what I would describe as a pulsating noise coming from the drivers front wheel. I wrote it off as maybe a little wheel slippage and maybe the ABS was kicking in. But today I noticed it again while just driving, mainly at low speed and seems like it does it more on hills. I'll investigate further tomorrow but just wanted to get it out an see what you all thought? Also, on about 250 miles so far, I'm at about 22 MPG and I would estimate that as 80/20 hwy/city. I know it's way to early in the game to worry about MPG but hearing everyone else with 28-30 just seems a little odd.
I am in the middle of a cold snap in Regina (-10 to-15F) since I got my Jeep and am averaging 18-20 mpg. Mostly city traffic and remote starting to make sure it is warm. Not to worried about the fuel economy yet, will have a good highway trip Monday to stretch its legs. Block heater cord is very short and I will be building a short extension. The interior of the Jeep does heat up relatively quickly not much difference from other non diesel vehicles I have owned except my wife's 03 Liberty with the 3.7l that gets warm quick. The heated seat and steering wheel are fantastic.

We have had about a foot of snow now and the roads now are hard pack snow and ice., the Goodyear Fortura HL's have worked great. With traction control on I have tried to get it out of shape and have experienced similar sounds. Pretty sure it is the stability/traction controls for me, they do a very good job so far keeping it under control. With the traction control off you can have a bit more fun without intervention. I would definitely take Eco off when doing this as it seems the turbo lag is greater and therefore decreasing throttle response which is critical when starting and controlling a slide. Have done some steep grades with ease and next week will do a bit more off road testing once it warms up. Only complaint is wet snow packs in the inner fender liners quickly and should be removed if it is going to freeze hard. Had to go to the car wash and spray with hot water to get it out.

I may be the first to get a MIL light that persist. No, it wasn't from the Bluespark. I bought a Scanguage2 which displayed a B2AAA code. I like the configurable display so I'm keeping it but that code basically means the scanner doesn't understand the actual code and would not reset it. I returned to Autozone and their Actron Scanner said it was missions exhaust related. Their reset worked.

I immediately went out on the interstate and run 80 in 7th gear (2500 rpm) for 20 miles. FYI, the turbo makes 5 psi of boost at 80 and it appears that 15 psi is near the limit. My powerstroke makes 33 psi at WOT.

So...it was most likely DPF related. I am guilty of idling a lot since I work from my "car office" all day. I was asking for it with extended idle times over an hour. Lesson learned!

Also, I never saw any warning to regen or anything unless I missed it.

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

I am hearing a lot about snow getting packed into the wheel wells. Wondering if anyone has put anything on the wells to help reduce/eliminate this problem?

I have used PAM spray on my Subaru before in a pinch(wax would be ideal)...not the most ideal solution but worked well on plastic and a general degreaser cleaned it up (however this is with plain old plastic inner fenders.

Also, I religiously wax my door jambs to ensure no water stays and freezes between the jamb and the door seal...prevents early morning/very cold theatrics during the winter with stuck doors.
