Love our CRD, so glad we got it over the 3.6. Tows with such stupid ease.

Re: Potential diesel buyers beware this is a post from a Jeep grand Cherokee lover

I guess it could be an issue, on my 2012 I've never seen a message about the DPF.
Have seen a message on a 2014 about how many % full it was( does the 2012 give any indication about the DPF burn?) anyone seen the message?

Re: Potential diesel buyers beware this is a post from a Jeep grand Cherokee lover

There didn't seem to be the same issues with Pre MY14s.
When we had several MY14 have fun with Limp Mode, all pre MY14 CRD owners confirmed they had never dealt with it. There have been very few reports in the last few months from new buyers.

Is there a difference in US/Export models here? You said the US had "piss tanks" so it wasn't a problem for them... Whats this and should we replace them?

And on a final, happy note, MY15 DIESEL Overland ordered due November!

Re: Potential diesel buyers beware this is a post from a Jeep grand Cherokee lover

I did?
Fair enough, they do seem to get the odd limp mode, but it was rarer than Aus.

That might help.

The only issues I have read about by Aus users (we have had the CRD for 3 years now) is issues with the DPR filter filling up without warning.
As you have the piss tanks it is not an issue.
So apart form that I have only read of glowing reviews.
But yes, dealers/service in the US are far behind a lot of the world when it comes to modern diesels.

Again, telling us what the actual issue helps put your comments into context rather than seem quite bizarre.
Yep, you did.

Short hops most of the time, a couple of 300 km round trips to the beach and towing a 1500kg camper trailer. Will be doing some beach driving here in Australia (queensland). Somebody put me out of my misery and convince me diesel is the way to go!
The diesel has that much power it is insane... economy is also excellent. I sold a V6 150 Prado for the diesel jeep and would never go back to petrol unles the price of fuel suddenly halves and we all know that ain't going to happen.
Diesel all the way.....

He's referring to the DEF tank (diesel exhaust fluid) on the US models. That's been another issue that you'll find a few threads on in the forum.

Re: Potential diesel buyers beware this is a post from a Jeep grand Cherokee lover

(Because a picture is worth....) Gerry - the US ecodiesel fuel intake looks like this:

http://image.trucktrend.com/f/roadte...gas-nozzle.jpg

We don't have that extra DEF/adBlue fluid intake that they have to have (courtesy of the EPA is my understanding) which is to the right of the fuel filler as you can see. That's the piss-tank that Snuke was talking about.

I'm an early build (April '13) CRD Overland - took delivery way back in July last year and have never suffered a DPF failure. (33,000kms on the clock).

Not always the case about stretching its legs. My wife had a regen occur at under 50kmh during the week. Didn't even prompt her to travel at highway speeds. Started at 80% and counted back for about 8-10 min till it came back with a message regen complete.

Re: Potential diesel buyers beware this is a post from a Jeep grand Cherokee lover

Greetings. I have a 2008 3.0 CRD Laredo on hold at a dealer with 47k miles on it. Everything I have found says that it has 3.07 axle gears. We tow a 6,000 lb. Camper and want to know if these gears will drop our rpm's too low below the torque peek. We are looking for great fuel economy and towing capabilities.

Thanks

Dg42

***EDIT****

After digging I've found that the dealer posted info that is for a basic Laredo 3.7 and not the CRD. All U.S. CRD's apparently come with 3.73 axle gears unless I'm mistaken.
