Thanks for the add! I searched and couldn't find may people having issues with their 3.0 diesel. Mine has been at the dealer since new years day. going on 2 months now. I finally got the "Jeep Wave" involved. they are trying to expedite parts, but they are saying could be another 2-3 weeks for parts, then another week to do the repairs. They are saying lift pump went out and took out the whole fuel system. anyone else have any issues? I'm not sure what my options are, but i think being in the shop 3+ months is way to excessive. they said they've changed fuel pumps, FICM, fuse blocks, wiring etc. I think at this point they are just throwing parts at it. any feedback would be helpful. thanks in advance
Really? Mine has been leaking oiling. This is the 2nd time and I have only 4500 miles on motor.

392... longevity has proven.. I hear it may not be offered in the near future because of continuing emissions MPG requirements

was Root Cause of your vehicles problem ever determined?

how painful was the buyback process?

what direction did you decide to go WRT a replacement?


mine's been down for a few weeks already due to a fragged High Pressure Fuel Pump, waiting on even an estimate for when they're going to be able to tell me how long it's going to be before we get the remaining parts to replace the rest of the fuel system. (i'm waiting on just a couple of fuel lines and the in-tank pump module, and @JeepCares can't/won't even tell me how long it's going to be before they'll be able to tell me how long it's going to be.)

they still think injector pump went out and took out the rest of the fuel system.
Buy back was pretty easy. they still "negotiate" the amount they buy it back for, which kinda sucks. but doing my research each state has their own lemon laws. check and see what your state requires. for the buy back, once we agreed on a price, it took about 3 weeks for the paperwork to finalize and get the check. I just had to meet at the dealer, sign some paper work and it was done. if they do buy it back, ask for a CDI. its basically a discount you can get on the purchase of a new one. I was able to buy a model year newer for about $2k less than I paid for my original jeep. I did go back to another diesel, hopefully not a mistake. I really wanted the 392 but could not find one without a crazy markup.

Good luck. That's nice that they do a "CDI." I recently had BMW buy back a vehicle and they offered no such help in getting another one. Kind of annoying to have to start at square one in a worse position than when you bought the lemon (recent ding on credit, having likely purchased aftermarket parts, having a hard dead line on when you need to replace your vehicle) and that was the final straw that made me decide to never deal with BMW again.
