We wish this was the case. Motors with bearing issues have occured on engines with as little as 4,000 miles and as high as almost 300,000 miles. Read the two emails I linked and it's self explanatory. FCA currently has a weekly demand of 56 engines.Again the failure rate is not from shit bearings or whatever your theory is. The EGR valve is dumping contaminated particles directly into your motor and even after 500 miles there's way too many particles that are smaller than 20 microns that will ruin your bearings. The main filter only traps 20 -30 microns of particles. You need a bypass filter to remove all particles bigger than one micron. This will eliminate any bearing wear off the contaminants that are dumped into this motor. The issue is not the motor again it's the EDR valve contaminating the bearings. Think about this how could a Italian high-end diesel motor company put the wrong bearings in this motor they're not stupid. But bringing that motor over to the US in adding the US emissions systems on is the issue.
Hmm, I hope you are wrong for other peoples sake, but you are saying makes sense. I have been puzzled that my experience seems so out of line with other people have reported with their warranty experiences.The 2014-19 3.0 is no longer in production, the cost to replace the Engine on VM. $ is considerably higher, FCA cannot rely on VM shipping production engines, This is mostly like future for all 2014-19 Owners If the 3.0 pukes.
