Based on the Chrysler claim for fuel consumption the diesel comes out in front by about $600 after taking into consideration the higher upfront cost and higher servicing costs.

Jeep Grand Cherokee 2014: Petrol or diesel?

Answered by CarsGuide 19 Dec 2014

My view is that unless you are doing high kays it's not worth buying diesel models. The Grand Cherokee diesel is around $4000 more expensive than the petrol V6 and a rough calculation based on the higher cost of diesel compared to PULP and diesel's lower consumption says that it would take you more than 100,000 km to recoup that cost. On top of that diesels are more expensive to service.

Answered by CarsGuide 5 Mar 2010

The reason they're expensive is the name on the packaging, and because they're being used by Chrysler-Jeep dealers they can really charge whatever they like. You can safely use any of the better-known brands, like Shell, Castrol, Pennzoil.

Cherokee Fire Warning

Answered by CarsGuide 11 Sep 2009

I RECALL the notice that did go out, I guess Chrysler's view is that the modification fixed the problem in 2002, and that there is now no problem. Anyone with a Cherokee should make sure their car has had the modification.
