Our's is diesel powered and so far is an excellent vehicle. MPG- 25 city, 29 highway. We bought it with 20,000 miles on it and can't figure out why someone one sold it, maybe it was a leased car but was like brand new. Current mileage is 77,600. The service cost for the diesel system is expensive if you have it done at a Jeep dealership but it has a complex control system and I don't want take a chance on someone without the proper training working on it.
31,000 miles in excellent condition
I waited 3 years for this truck. I ordered the Diesel option on Feb 8th, it was delivered on March 30th. After 3 months and 5,600 miles I am amazed that this truck drives like a car, sips diesel fuel and has all the amenities of an upscale SUV, but can tow as much as my son's F-150 XLT with a 5.0 liter V-8. Chevrolet hit a homer-make that a grand slam! I am glad I spent the extra money on the diesel. 27MPG around town and mid 30's on the hi way.
One of the better cars out there, I like the Sport and manual shifting and the gas saving on the highway. The Nav system and the bluetooth is great. Only issue I have is no separate button to disable traction control. In the winter you want that at times. Can't remove the fuse to disable it as its tied into the ABS. Stupid idea. But overall great car, just don't get it stuck in snow.
I wanted the clean diesel to be greener & use less fuel. On the interstate at 70-75 I get around 50 mpg I drove the car for months in congested stop & go traffic, my average mileage ran between 32 to 34 miles a gallon. On rough roads it can be a little loud, but if I am listening to stock sound system, which sounds great, I do not notice it even at low volumes. The motor has a lot more get up and go than I was expecting from a diesel and it handles great in curves. I like it a lot!!

Size is perfect. Plenty of cabin room for 4 adults. Lots of head room. Only car close is the Bentley GTC for $130K more. I'll take the E350A.
