Hi All - Quick settlement question.

My Jeep - 2014 Limited EcoDiesel. No tunes, had the update performed to get the settlement and warranty extension.

Over the last 3 months I have had a check engine light flash with the same code, P0406 if I recall correctly. It just flashed for the 4th time. The previous 3 times I’ve taken it to the dealer to have it fixed under the warranty.

My Question - I read somewhere on this forum that under the settlement, a vehicle returned for the same emissions problem 4 times without a permanent fix must be purchased back by Chrysler. So if I have this fixed at a dealer and it flashes again, they have to buy it back. Correct?

Thanks!

I think you're correct.

If I include a link, it'll take forever for my post to show up. So, Google "EcoDiesel buyback pdf". The relevant document should be the first hit "GET PAID CASH How it works". Go to page 15 of that document for the buyback details.

Per the settlement, you can qualify for a buyback if your vehicle is in the shop for 30 or more consecutive days or you take it to the same dealership 4 times for the same code. Once this has happened and you would like to start the process you call FCA customer service directly and tell them you would like to start the buyback process. They will collect required information and start the process. IN SOME CASES the FCA reps have been giving out bad info stating they are not offering buybacks. Get the persons name and call the lawfirm with the information and they will contact FCA directly on your behalf. A lot of the buybacks are not being approved as a "warranty buyback" because if there are any records on file of your vehicle being serviced for a similar issue (like a p20ee code) then they can claim that there was preexisting problems and it is not directly related to the AEM. BUT in most cases they will offer you a "Good Will Buyback." "Hey Joe, what is the difference between the two?" Glad you asked. If you somehow get a warranty buyback, they take the current NADA value, plus options at the clean retail value (mine was $24,945). A good will buyback takes that same value minus mileage deductions and a title and tax reduction. Basically FCA's way of trying to save some $ in this mess.

Are 3.0 EcoDiesel a good engine?
The Bad The 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 is a $4,995 upgrade over the gas V6 engine, and a $3,000 upcharge over Ram's excellent 5.7-liter Hemi V8.
