I agree, this is how failure trends are established to determine reliability. Just because 1 in 10 has a issue doesn't mean you will, just helps in making an informed decision.

Patience has proved to be a blessing for more than a few. If you do a posting on the other Jeep forum site that is more particular to the WK2 models, you're better chanced at getting some sound advice.

It's an opinion - just like yours.

I have 37000km on our Eco. Just did a 850km trip and averaged 7.7L/100 going through the Rocky Mountains. No problems yet

I had a 2006 WK with the Hemi and traded it for a 2014.
I really wanted to like the Diesel. On paper it looked good but when I took a test drive it just wasn't for me. I was just too used to the snappy crisp response of the Hemi.

Point is try both, opinions on chat rooms on this subject matter are pretty worthless. Put your butt in a seat.
