I have an offer on a 2014 with 15,000 miles that they are willing to certify for me. The car has not had any DEF issues, but those could be coming based on reading other posts. Looking for any thoughts on if this would be a poor decision or if I should get this and be confident the dealer can solve any DEF issues that would come up in the future. The two local dealers seem confident that they have the fixes should it fail on me.

Any help and thoughts appreciated.

Like others have said to me, just do your research on the dealership. The majority of the problems are lack of proper service when an issue arises... The GC is a wonderful ride, but it has it's issue - as does every vehicle. Just don't bring your issues to Corporate Jeep or Chrysler as I did. There will be no hope for a quick fix, and you will likely have to have some help to get a resolution.

Bottom line: If you're confident in your dealership and are willing to put your trust into the Jeep/Chrysler brand, then yes get the GC. It's amazing when not afflicted.

Another thing... You've got to DRIVE this car. It can't be used as a grocery-getter. Some people have issues with DEF because they simply don't drive long/hard enough.

Hope this helps...

Thank you for the thoughts. I am comfortable with the local dealer. Both of the owners drive the diesel, so it would appear that they at least back their confidence in the engine after telling me they had the problems under control.

i agree. you are still under warranty. you will probably need a new CAT but its a warranty repair. Depending on when yours was buit it might already be upgraded. Mine went at 28K. my dealer replaced it in 2-3 hours. Piece of cake. But as naeliers said, drive it, dont baby it. I work mine hard and we love each other :)
