2023 Jeep Wrangler equipped with EcoDiesel Engine May Experience Defects
Shub & Johns LLC has opened an investigation into Jeep after consumers reported issues related to and stemming from the Jeep Wrangler’s EcoDiesel engine. Drivers and owners of the 3.0L EcoDiesel model Jeep Wrangler have complained that they may be experiencing issues relating to the engine, transmission, electrical system, and potentially other components of the vehicle.
Owners of the 2023 Jeep Wrangler have taken to online forums to voice their concerns regarding the vehicles increasing electrical issues and suspension and transmission problems that are potentially related to the vehicle’s 3.0L EcoDiesel Engine. While the EcoDiesel engine offers some advantages over the gas-fueled engine Jeep Wrangler, it has also raised some concerns of its safety. Namely, consumers have reported that the EcoDiesel Wrangler’s oil cooler has issues keeping the engine oil’s temperature within an optimal range which can reduce performance and increase the wear of the engine. The engine is also prone to exhaust leaks and turbo lag which creates both safety and health risks for the drivers and passengers.
Aside from the engine, the EcoDiesel Jeep Wrangler allegedly experiences issues with the electrical system, drivetrain, and steering as well. The responsiveness of the steering wheel and gear shifting issues can lead to dangerous situations on the road and can put the driver at risk.
Diesel model of the 2023 Jeep Wrangler is equipped with the second generation of the 3.0L EcoDiesel engine, an engine upgraded from the first model which experienced similar issues and posed similar risks for drivers. The Manufacturer of the Wrangler has claimed that it will be discontinuing the EcoDiesel option in at least the 2024 Wrangler.
