Grand Cherokee 2013 CRD limited turbo failure

Has anyone had any problems with the turbo failing on the 2013 CRD V6 3.OL diesels? I just bought it on Friday and it didn't even last a day when it started making a loud whine in the cab when under acceleration.. Not long after the electronic throttle control lamp (red lightning bolt) came on and also the engine light. It went back to the dealers today and they believe the turbo has failed but couldn't tell me how bad yet...

yes i have had failure in the turbo pipe work dump pipe it was blowing soot all over the firewall the dealer could not workout how to get to it they have to remove the false firewall i have had this car 6 months it has been to date 7 weeks in the dealers due to excess diesel fume in the cabin and noe the manifold gasket has **** itself with another EGR valve its in its 4th week waiting for these parts .This company has a lot to answer for in regards to part supply to its customers i know of several very dissatisfied customers with these JGCs i have another person who has also diesel fumes in the cabin .I intend to take very public action on these issues Chrysler has not even given me any sort of priority after spending $83 k its not on .If your problem is the Turbo you will be waiting off the road at least 4 to 5 weeks .
