Re: Is DPF issue for 2014 CRD fixed now?

OK, I'm impressed with the knowledge shared over the past few pages regarding the the engine diagnostic apps and OBD2 adaptors. But can we dumb it down to my level.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Not sure SJ&L. The update hadn't been done on mine. Was going to have it done at the 50k service. I do mostly open road driving and towing so I was surprised when it happened. But hopefully that was...

Re: The Towing thread

I think the general consensus here is to let the auto do its own thing as the 8-speed transmission is capable of this. However I turn 'ECO' off when towing. This holds the lower gears for a little...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Not 100% sure, and OK to be corrected.

I think the sump oil pan is attached to a casting that is attached to the engine block, meaning two points to be sealed. The dealer was referring to the seal...

It seems the DFP issues being discussed are only occurring within the first few hundred km's with brand new cars. Is this correct or have there been later occurances?
