Before I actually purchase a diesel grand cherokee I am trying to understand what I am getting into.

I understand that a clogged DPF needing replacement will be very expensive. Does anyone know the actual cost of replacement? I have heard numbers like 8000.00

I also heard that cleaning is possible for around 1400.00

also since I do mostly city driving how long will it be before this device needs to be replaced?

Not for the city..... Good for extensive highway and or towing. Yow can get the same vehicle with a 6 for far less.

Yes- I confirm this from talking to the service manager when I brought mine in for 'shifter recall' -- the problem they see crop up in diesel Rams sold to construction companies come from 'excessive idling' - they need driven!

New to site little background about me. Proud owner 2015 JGC ecodeisel 48400 is the mileage. I added a cold air intake from K&N. Motor runs great. Oil changes every 5000 to 7000. Back at the end of august the regen light came on. I drove it about a couple of days the hole time thinking i need to get out and take it for a cruse. I work 5 miles from home and do alot of driving around town and then getting on and off I-10. But anyways next thing i know i was stuck in limp mode max 38 mph. Found a place that was willing to try and force a regen even though it was not the wyco or whatever scanner. He used a snapon. And it worked. Drove for about 2 weeks changed the oil and then all of the sudden in it again. Had the same dude do it again and it worked again as it should. Since then i have had 2 normal regens. I have found that if i just go for a cruse down the interstate every cou ple weeks for 40 minutes or so. I have no trouble what so ever. So when it tells you to do one dont take it lightly just do it. But i am now debating on tuning it. Where i live ppei is in the same town so the turn around would be 3 days.
