Re: Emissions Readiness after CAT replacement

I had the same issue, mine went right down to the wire. I failed inspection and it lasted the full 60 days that I had to get it re-inspected. Finally had to hand the dealer back my Jeep because I...

Re: New Owner

Congrats!

I actually like the look of those wheels. I just changed out the tires. The weathertechs fit well and coming up on 1 year, they've held up great.

Re: Incorrect DEF - See dealer

So, I took my truck in today for the ever persistent P20EE. They completely screwed up and didn't even acknowledge the new TSB released last week:

Re: USA Today - Test Drive: New diesel Cherokee not quite Grand

Break it down by individual fuel ups and you have a better statistical sample. Regardless, while the sample size may not be up to par for an academic paper, it's enough to get a good idea for most.

Re: 6K miles for first oil change

I had my first done at 3k, oil life indicator was at about 10%. I drive almost all city though. I like to get my first oil change done between 3-5k anyway though.

Re: Comparison and feedback on 18" vs 20" wheels

This.

Even the 18s are a bit worrisome when it comes to curb rash for me. Of course I was used to my 35" tires on 17" rims I had on my H3:)

I disagree. Like I said, I drive over 90% of the time in the city and over the past 3 months of ownership I've never been prompted to do so.
