6 fuel injectors got rusty

My GC 2012 limited 3.0 engine died on the highway
I left the car in serbia and took the plane to get back to swizerland
After 20 days my insurance brought the car back home, but the bigest problem is that they found watter on the fuel filters, and all the fuel injectors got rusty.

Im asking my self a question :
How come my car didt indicate that there is watter on the fuel??
We foud around 1 litre watter on the filters and the car didnt indicate it??

How can this happen?
Why so much watter on the filters??

But the filters do separate water, so I'm not sure that finding a liter in the filters is necessarily bad, although that seems like a lot. The problem is the water going past the filters, and where in the hell are you buying such crap diesel. I've never seen more than a tbsp of water in a passenger vehicle filter with 20k mile filter changes.

Re: 6 fuel injectors got rusty

Thanks for your answear buddy

The thing is that my car never indicated me for watter on the filters.
In my family we have
Audi Q7 diesel
Bmw X5 diesel
Porsche cayenne petrol
Audi a8 petrol
VW Turan diesel and nobody had the same problem as me
We went home since 30 times with our cars
This was the first time a took my Grand cherokee to Kosovo, and there i go, car broken, 4'200 swiss francs to pay for the parts and garage

Im realy pissed off
Had to buy 6 new fuel injectors
