wow. Is there a dealer nearby? That is my only suggestion. You might also try a local auto parts place as many have an analyzer you could borrow to at least get the error codes.

It will get expensive changing the oil three times more often than originally expected.
I am just over 2500 miles, and mine shows 75%, so I am right on track. Wonder why yours has dropped so much, as we are in the same climate. I wonder if it will stabilize out with time.

Can any of our snowy SFU owners give advice whether they experienced this problem, and what do they DIY to solve it (maybe better blades)?
Replaced with Bosch Icons, those and weather tech floor mats I purchase for every car I own. Drove a loaner JGC through the storm we got yesterday and had lots of issues with the wiper blades.

On the plus side, picking up my JGC today with the rock rails installed

I did. My SFU was parked at work yesterday with the wipers folded away from the windshield. When it was time to commute back home, I brushed the windshield and the wipers resting area clear of any snow. The 1st 15 minute drive went well. Turned on windshield defroster. Gradually the tip of the passenger side blade started freezing and became a solid ice block. I tried turning the defroster full blast at "Hi", but that was not enough and I had to stop and bang the wiper to break all the ice.

I'm driving mine in Florida (temps in the 70s), mix of freeway and other, now showing 73% oil life at 1700 miles. Seems like it dropped rapidly from the 94% it had at delivery with only 14 miles on the odometer down to the mid to low 70% range, and now has stabilized.

I always adhere to vehicle maintenance protocols, so when it says I'm due for an oil change, whether it's 5000 miles or 10000 miles, I'll do it, but knowing how expensive the oil filters and oil are for these vehicles, I hope it goes further than 3500 miles.

One 2014 JGC CRD owner on another thread completed his first oil change himself instead of using the dealer and said it cost him over $150.

Wow.

8 quarts @ $12/quart is $96 + tax just for the oil...

Speak to your dealers. The dealers material costs are substantially lower than retail prices. They want your service business and do not massively markup on material. I was told by my service manager that when time comes for my 1st service, he will be able to do it for probably less than $100. And he was fully aware of the type of oil and filter I was referring to.

The oil filter alone retails for over $40, and the wholesale price is about $30. If he can get the oil for $8.75 a quart, he can do your oil and filter change for less than $100 before taxes.

These prices will come down as production increases and after market competitors begin manufacturing filters, but for the near term I suspect we'll be paying a premium for oil changes.

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

The main problem is that this is a very special oil and I don't see the price of that coming down much. Filter prices will come down but this low ash oil requirement has fairly unique required properties like a fairly high temperature and shear as well.
If the dealer (reported I think in the first oil change thread) does have oil around 6 bucks a L that meets this MS-11106 spec that is where I will go. I bet within 6 months we will have a much better idea where to get the oil and filter that is more economically than what we all will pay now.
My Super Duty took 15 qts and the filter held around 2 1/2 qts of diesel oil. At least the oil was fairly cheap but required changing every 5K miles. Much dirtier engine for blow by then our VM 3.0L..

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

As the temp gets below 25ish degrees I seem to get a large amount of a gurgling? noise over 2000 rpm's. I thought it was just me being picky...til the last person who rode with me was wondering what the obnoxious noise was. I then parked in a heated garage today and the noise was gone temporarily. Any ideas? This thing really seems to hate the cold. I still enjoy the truck, but I question my decision trading in the the 2013 Hemi. At least the pano sunroof rattles have been corrected on this one so far. Still can't beat the effortless torque on the highway, but I do question Mopar quality.
