Great info Drudgery. Thanks

I think I would take it if they offered it to me. The way I read it- its not just our Jeeps but all vehicles that are tested this way. The CRD was not even for sale in CA.

Cool - I did as well but I just did the phone questionare yesterday and then mailed it just in case they didn't register it correctly. The funny thing was they had more questions on the phone questionare than on the printed one mailed out. Most related to interior air quality like interior armour all/leather protectors used, etc, but also next oil change required, tires size being original - any lifts or other mods, any fuel additives or incorrect fuel used, oil additives. Maybe worth calling if you want in on it.

The more I think about this more I think it is a poor customer service by Chrysler. Offering some customers a new DPF and telling others that too bad so sad is not a good way to do business. I was already turned off by Chrysler because of the gov't bailout, UAW, and FIAT. This will probably seal the deal on never doing business with them in the future.

Probably true...but most vehicles do not have a $3800 part replaced. That is the kicker.

Scootr - So a company is forced into emissions testing by the Government and then actually do it to the extent that they not only comply with the Gov - but also get valuable next gen type of data and you think is bad? This was a random VIN number search FORCED by the EPA. It has nothing to do with Chrysler's deicision making.

So, just to update everyone. I was contacted by the company that is going to do the testing. They asked a bunch more questions than what was on the mailed paperwork. Like when the vehicle was last waxed, when I last cleaned my leather seats. The testing company then told me that they would let me know, by the end of the year, if my wk would be used for testing. I was told that of the respondents that it is another random group of vehicles to be tested.

those seem like odd questions for emissions testing.

Maybe they are trying to get to the root cause of the burning smell I have inside my GC when I turn up the heat.

This would show that someone is anal about taking care of their car instead of rolling around never changing the oil. Instead of a person just getting big rims and never doing a damn thing then wondering why their car burns oil all the time.

Has anyone had their Jeep chosen? We had our phone interview about 6 weeks ago and said we should hve heard something by now. Either a letter stating we weren't selected or a telephone that we where.

The reasoning for knowing the last time your vehicle was waxed and when you treated the leather surfaces, is because they also wanted to test the amount of smells reaching the inside of the vehicle. Since waxes and polish contain petroleum distillates that would effect the results.
