Seems there are too many issues with new Diesels to even consider one. Maybe the Jeeps are different?

It's basically the same 3.0 they've been using in the grands and 1500 Ram not sure if those are having problems or not. Other than the wrangler I'm not really a Chrysler guy.

I’m pretty new here. Hello. Diesel orders started 10/4 and only a handful have been delivered. With the 440lbs of torque many with plans fir large tires are attracted. Myself, I do 25k Highway miles/yr and plan to keep forever so it fits me. I’m not usually first in on a new model but like someone said here, can’t take your $$$ with you. Price wise you can get a diesel in the sport trim under $40k.

As others have said, the AC runs but just blows air, not cold air.

I live in S Florida, and I have noticed when the cabin temp gets warmer, the engine will come back on to cool the cabin back down. Not quite sure what the threshold is, but I was surprised that the AC kicked back on

The thresholds are supposed to be 40 Degrees on the low end and 80 Degrees on the high end. At least that's what they are in the WK2. At those points, ESS is supposed to not engage or if it did, it is supposed to disengage. Most of the time, it works that way.

A great many of the Ecodiesels in the Rams had problems - a lot of them blew up by the time they reached 100,000 miles. Have a good friend that owned one for about 3 years. It was in the shop so much and for so long (lack of repair parts) that he finally traded for a gas engine.

But Fiat states the diesel in the JL is essentially a new engine, different from the previous models, and the changes made were to address the shortcomings of the older engines. We'll see. Not sure I want to be a beta tester. Maybe if Jeep offers a 100,000 mile drivetrain warranty.

I will be ordering a JLUR Ecodiesel in May when my EcoDiesel GC lease is up. We will buyout the lease and my wife will drive it. We have had Zero issues with the vehicle and I refuse to get the EPA flash on the ECM. The GC is a 2016 75th Anniversary Edition in Recon Green,

Looks like granite or some kind of dark gray to me.

Ironically, my dealer texted me yesterday that ALL Jeep EcoDiesel production has been "paused" by FCA. I asked if the cause was FCA or EPA related? I'll post once I know more...

Everyone thinks it's black unless the sun is out. The paint is dark green with a heavy pearl content...
