My 2014 Grand Limited EcoD is at 113k miles. In Oct, I'll be out of my extended warranty and at 120k I'll be out of my emissions/exhaust warranty. I'm wondering if anyone knows of any other troubles that could be ahead. All other service has been up to date.

Don't know whether to keep it or swap it for a newer model. I'd hate to be out a new transmission or something worse without a warranty.

I have had an oil leak fixed as well as catastrophic coolant/radiator problem—those were repaired under warranty.

Thank you.

I really question the reliability of the fuel / DEF systems in these ecodiesels long term. See my recent post on failures in the injection pump that caused a major $7k
fuel system failure/replacement - most of which are as covered under warranty.

A year before the settlement, my DEF sensor failed and I had to have it replaced at my own cost. To replace the sensor the entire DEF tank had to be replaced which was $4k.

I’ve also had major repairs performed under warranty for the DEF filter/regeneration systems (wouldn’t clear).

Lastly I’ve had the suspension compressor fail shortly after using it for towing an Airstream well within its tow capacity. Coincidence? Unclear. This was a $2.5k repair not covered under warranty.

Net: I suspect the lifetime maintenance cost of a JGC ED post extended warranty will be cost prohibitive.
