  1. Based on your site’s calculations: If I drove 90 miles a day, I’d save $205/yr. Great, in just over 21 years, I will pay for the diesel engine option. Not providing it on the Laredo model is a mistake. Way to make it economical for the everyday person Jeep.

    I have a 2014 eco diesel. At 7500 miles error codes appeared telling me the exhaust filter was full. Shutting down to a top speed of 35mph. reset codes, pulled and reinstalled filter. Any ideas why this happened at 7500 miles ?

    I have a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Eco diesel and have serious problems resulting from faulty or incorrect DEF fluid. Be sure to check the expiration date on any DEF fluid added to your DEF tank.

    • It isnt the fluid. i used brand new fluid and had the same issues. been in the shop a month. It would be a 5000 repair if not under warranty besides not having my car for a month!
