    Sad to say good bye

    Well after owning a 14 and a 16 ED, I have traded in for a 19 grand cherokee. I had 5 years of pretty much flawless driving with the ED's. Mileage averaged pretty much the same in both vehicles, until the last couple months. Part of the reason I traded. Was at dealer and they flashed the computer. Since that time its fuel mileage sucked. It wouldn't shift automatically out of 6th. Anyway I have been on the fence anyway and this just pushed me over. I will miss the space I had. I was concerned more with getting into and out of truck with my disability, was getting harder all the time. I for one was not one of the fear mongers about the engine, I did have concerns of the maintenance costs as I was on the line between driving enough miles and not to make it worth it.
    Anyway, happy driving and enjoy your ED's. Maybe I will stop in once and awhile to see what's going on.

    Good luck with the grand cherokee and do stop in once in a while.

    You will like the GC, especially in winter. I've owned 2, great vehicles! Never let the dealer reflash the Jeep's ECM, either!

    Not good to live in your fears.

    Spending lots of money to make yourself feel better is probably a good thing for you. May you find the GC takes the fear out of your driving needs.

    I have a Grand Cherokee with the ecodiesel engine. Great Vehicle, but this forum is the source of a lot of my information.

    Just curious why u chose to ditch instead of just get a GDE tune? Sounds like you had a good truck.

    Did you not read the full post? I don't believe GDE has developed anything for helping disableds getting in and out of the truck.

    I missed the last part - was reading on the train into work. No need for the snark. People on this forum really put on their cranky pants this morning. I was merely asking a question.
