I didn't bring mine in until 17000 miles. It went in for the stupid vibrating glovebox and a smell. Both were never resolved. Other than that no problems.

2012 Overland with 3.0 CRD (Export Model since I'm an Aussie). Only done about 8000 kms so far but no real problems. Minor hassle was a suspension noise caused by a loose bolt which was fixed under warranty when they also put in the Sat Nav accuracy fix (which was not a problem as far as I was concerned). Very happy with vehicle - the limited off road stuff I have done so far was fine. The sealed and unsealed road handling is excellent. I'm a former rusted on Toyota Land Cruiser fan and the only thing I am missing is the larger storage space but the handling is much much better! Also very pleased with the diesel engine - goes like a rocket and whilst technically I cant tell you about the emission the exhaust fumes are nothing like some older diesel's I've been near! The 28mpg economy also beats the you know what out of my old cruisers 16-18 mpg. Petrol here is ranges from $1.20 to $1.50 per litre and diesel around $1.40-$1.50 but I'm saving money!

1st post here by the way!

Just turned 30,000 miles, not a single issue to report, it's been great. Routinely getting 19.6 to 20 mpg highway.

Just hit 10 K this past week.

The only issues that I have experienced are:

Blue smoke when starting up after the engine is warm and the GC is parked on a hill. No oil consumption issues though.

Slight surging when cruising at highway speeds in 6th gear. I notice this when applying light throttle on a slight incline. I had an 06 Pacifica that exhibited similar symptoms albeit much worse.

I will wait until permanent solutions are available to correct both items.

Nearly 18K miles and no visits to the dealer. Routine service at 3, 6, 12, and 15K miles without drama. Will take care of the 18 and 24K service myself. The 30K service to take care of Hemi-specific items will go to dealer.

Almost 11k in 10 months. 0 trips back to dealer except for free oil change. No ticking. I do have the clunky self-leveling shocks, but I can live with them until a real fix is found/made.

So 7 of the last 15 posts reported issues ranging from a vibrating glove box, a smell, failed break lights, broken door latch, blue smoke, bad strut, to loose suspension bolts and clunky shocks. That's 45% of the last 15 posts with issues (big or small) as the OP stated.
