That's what I was thinking weck, but I've never experienced that before. Granted, my experience with automatic transmissions is limited. I didn't know the torque converter could disengage.

Re: How much did you pay for your ecodiesel extended warranty?

Re: Interesting ACC/FCW interaction

So I think the ACC can only apply 40% of the braking force, and gives the BRAKE indicator when it detects that may not be enough braking. I don't know if the "additional braking" feature has such a...

Re: DEF Level at Delivery

$30 bucks and 5 gallons later, my previously 1/3rd full DEF tank is sitting happy at 100%. At least they filled it just right so you don't have any left over from 2x 2.5gallon DEF containers.

Re: MPG Thread and Cost of the diesel in your area.

My Jeep came with an App that shows diesel pricing in the area :)

I'm averaging 27 at the moment, lots of city driving. Diesel is $4.00 - $4.60 in my area currently.

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

Leather or not, I wish I had it on my Overland! I love the leather in my overland, but durability is certainly desirable, and if it FEELS better, I don't see any substantive reason to complain.

Re: DEF Level at Delivery

Chrysler recommends DEF that is ISO 22241 certified by the API. They claim anything else could damage the system.

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

In the diesel supplement it details the timeframe needed to let the turbo cool down. In most light use situations, its a couple minutes, can be a couple more if you are towing or have a heavy load.

DEF Level at Delivery

According to the tips card included with my EcoDiesel:

"Your vehicle has been delivered to you with a full tank of DEF"

I might take this back to the dealer and ask him to fill it up after all.

Re: '14 Grand Cherokee Overland EcoDiesel in Granite

Re: Is the ecodiesel responsive on highway?

I haven't hammered the throttle in my jeep yet, but when I've given it about half throttle, it has really picked up and went. The diesel makes this truck feel light.
