22k on mine, runs great, no issues... Get 14 mpg when off roading, around 20 mpg’s if not.

70K KMS stock Sahara. New rubber and new plugs. Other than than the death wobble fix, all has been good. Lots of highway speed, and I think that the punch is still there, like Ijust drove it off the lot 2 years ago.

14k now.
v41 recall fixed a majority of my steering issues.
Squeaking/howling rear differential was repaired with a seal.
Seems to drive smoother and quieter as the miles rack up.

Thanks I use Shell 91 all the way and have checked the Mishimoto catch can and found it hasn't produced any oil bypass yet. Time to do some research.
I want to point out 2 things so far in this thread....

1. A catch can is not catching really any oil
2. This engine has direct injection.

1. If there is no oil inside the catch can then there is very little oil in the intake manifold which means there is basically none hitting the intake valve.

2. No fuel system cleaner is going to clean intake valves when the vehicle has direct injection. Secondly, if there no oil entering the intake there should be no carbon build up or almost none in the combustion chamber. The only way to remove deposits on the intake valve would be walnut shell blasting which by these indications so far would never be needed.

These are the most import reasons why this engine will make the long haul. Should/Can fuel system cleaner be used? It wont hurt but is not necessary.

As far as Carbon build up. I plan to use a good turbo safe induction type cleaner(GDI or BG44,) every 15k or so as a precaution. As long as the carbon isn't allowed to build up shouldn't be a problem with large chunks coming loose and damaging valves, cylinder wall or turbo. I haven't researched it yet for my 2.0 JL but have done it in the past on my Mazda Speed3 with no problems as long as you go slow and do not let it suck to much in at once (Hydro lock). I guess I can go through the brake booster vacume line or PVC line where it connects to my oil catch can output.

Spot on.. I installed a Misimoto can 5k miles ago, here's what was in there at todays oil change. A half dozen off road trips with mud and deep water crossings.

Bought 9-22, 1900 miles. Took her to Breckenridge from Omaha this weekend, ave 19 mpg @ mostly 80 mph on the interstate. The wind killed the mpg on the way back today. I also had 4 passengers and a full trunk area, so more weight than normal. I am impressed with the 2.0T, very quiet and plenty of power. I had a 3.6L before and it was louder.

Over 31,000 miles so far.

Running good. Other than a new tranny on day 2 of ownership, everything else has been running great.

Wow that’s encouraging. The old VW DI horror stories were starting to get to me, worrying about longevity. But it looks like the Italians built a better DI.

Looks like I'm the mileage leader so far. Haha. I have 46xxx miles on my 2018 2.0t. Its been perfect so far with no issues.

Did want to mention, when I was looking for my Jeep (used last year). I saw a 2018 2.0t with 180,000 miles for sale. Verified with dealer with pictures of the odometer. Crazy amount for a 2018 in the year 2019.

So I'm guessing that the "unproven" engine is doing OK. I love these folks thinking that one of the largest automotive manufacturers in the world put all their bank on a bad engine! Meanwhile I hear of all kinds of issues with the "tried and true" minivan engine...

This is true.. more issues with my 'unproven' clutch and manual transmission. The 3.6 minivan motor has been good so far. Of course only 17k miles on my 2020. Most issues with drivetrain start around 50k+ (or under 10k).

I'd have purchased the 2l turbo if they offered it with the manual trans. Not offering it should have been a red flag.

18k miles now on my 18’ 2.0 sport. No power train issues, had a couple of hiccups where in reverse the jeep stalled for whatever reason, and where it kinda froze and just sat in neutral before shifting into reverse.

I’ve had more things done with suspension or steering than power train.
