Greetings, Jeep Garage!

Just a brief hello to everybody as a newbie here. My wife and I have admired the new GC Platform since its debut a few years ago...and they seem to be refining it.

Was very interested in the new Diesel Summit GC, but the problems thus far have me looking at the 2015 HEMI GC Summit. Looking fwd to learning, sharing and enjoying here. Thanks, and thanks for the valuable info here.

I'm reading here on this forum that quite a few are having trouble with a portion of the emissions system crapping-out pretty early on ( I don't know the acronym for the system & parts) and they are easy to damage and hideously expensive to repair. One forum member stated (my paraphrase) "it's like Jeep cobbled together a system for emissions qualifications without properly vetting it", not to mention I'm reading one or two of the components of it are in VERY vulnerable locations- just not a very well thought out solution. You can find said complaints in the Diesel section here. And it appears thus far that Jeep is leaving customers hanging on this issue. More than one or two very unhappy campers it seems. I hope they remedy this.

BTW, my wife's prior '07 RT/RT Charger's Hemi was a great engine. Just stellar and actually delivered pretty impressive HWY mileage to go along with the HP it offered.

Greetings, Jeep Garage!

I too have had problems.

I have the GC HEMI Summit and it is VERY expensive to repair. The emissions components are extremely finicky and expensive. Fortunately they have been under warranty; so far. I also have a pile of recalls that keep adding up

On a side note; the basic 30k service is $1000 base just for maintenance

My Acura is cheaper to maintain!!!

Love the off roading. But jesh...
