Unhappy New to Jeep

I recently purchased a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee CRD 3 L MB diesel. I bought it because of the MB diesel. It has 77000 kms on it. That engine is barely broke in. But, due to poor maintenance from the previous owner (too little, too late) I have been experiencing engine leaks. I don't know what else, but, for sure, it had bulk oil, a non-synthetic oil for gas engines. YIKES! Now, this is a very pricy engine if you don't treat it right from the beginning. The oil cooler was leaking and I'm looking at a $3000 repair bill. It isn't covered on warranty as it is a component of the engine (rip off #2). This scares me and I'm looking to trade it in.
I really like the Jeep, though, so I'm looking at a 2010 GC with a 3.7 L gas engine. Can you experienced Jeep owners give me some pointers on the 3.7 L gas engine?
