20,350 miles, and no problems with my Jeep. Love it!!
The dealership? lots of problems. They really are crooks. I am never going back there again.

It's amazing how many people suck at 3rd grade math. "Diesel costs more at the pump!" Um, yeah...but if you get 7-9 miles per gallon more than the same vehicle with a gas engine (which you will, from personal experience), then you are still saving $$$$.

Diesel tailpipe emissions today are cleaner than gasoline tailpipe emissions, also. So no, diesels are not "dirty".

We're up to about 16k so far.

Nothing major to speak of. Minor (at least the way I look at it) paint issue on the spoiler off the rear glass and with that flash light in the rear.

Sure my rig has seen the trail, but I wheel it like a soccer mom looking for a parking spot at Nordstroms.

it's pretty well known that all costs factored in, a diesel takes a lot of miles to make up any money over the gasser. If the diesel is offered at a similar price point to the gas models then it makes up for the higher fuel prices. In trucks with the $5000-$7500 markup for a diesel, it takes a lot of miles and a lot of years to overcome that initial hit. $5000 is a lot of gas.

Isn't it funny how it's always in the last place you think to look?

Just hit 10K last night coming back from a camping trip in CO. 2011 70th anniversary, bone stock. 2 oil changes, and 1 tire rotation, all maintenence by me. Only problem so far was a rattle in the rear. I tightened the spare tire down, and rattle solved. Knocking on wood, she's been great so far.

Just rolled 12500 miles. 2 oil changes, 1 tire rotation, and the rear unlock/lock button on hatch quit working (warranty fix). I've logged about 100 miles of "off roading" if you consider driving in powder sand on the beach to be off roading. Still going strong. Also, on second note I'm averaging 22 - 24 MPG except when off roading of course.

2011 Overland w/hemi. 42,000 w/ no problems. Only issue were brake lights & running lights failed & were easy replacement.
It is exactly what we needed as a vehicle. Can carry cargo, trailer and comfortable for long distance driving.
