That is good to hear and I echo your thoughts... The diesel forum seems to be pretty dead here and I haven't figured out either if that is good or bad... But I'm thinking good ! The JGC forum is active and full of early on initial problems, complaints, and actually a few praises... I've had a few issues in 52 k of driving, but other than a recall on the SCR/Cat converter replaced under warranty, none have been engine related... 10K Oil changes with cheap Rotella T6, uses no oil, and runs strong and dependably... very happy...!
We hope and expect the Ingenium to exceed the VM Motori in mileage and suitability for the Cat. I also think the ZF 8 speed is the perfect transmission for the vehicle if the shift points are accurately programmed to utilize the meat of the 20D torque range. If done properly, the 180 HP will feel much stronger along with outstanding mileage and comfort.
I would like to see more posts about real world driving experiences good and bad with it, along with any good maintenance info that others have discovered like oil changes, any DPF plugging issues from short trip driving, ( Was a JGC early issue..) and fuel filter location and changes, ( Critical to happy diesels !) and what kind of range per tank people are getting. If everything is good.. lets hear it ! But from everything I have read and gleaned, the 2.0 Ingenium has so far proven to be a solid and dependable newcomer....
