    My 2015 Eco Diesel With 78,xxx miles, just popped this code, P20EE. Into dealer & will get SCR NOx Cat replaced. 3 days to get part. DEF has been an ongoing issue with this truck since new. Also noticed coolant loss for past several months. Dealer came back with “new water pump & radiator leak”. This boggles my mind. I’ve driven vehicles for 180,xxx miles that never needed pump/radiator replacement. I’m questioning the quality of C F products.

    With our Eco's, loss of coolant is almost always leaking in the EGR system. I asked about that recall while at the FCA shop yesterday and they had no clue. Probably not out long enough. It also hasn't shown up in MyMopar for my truck at least.

    looked it up on the NHTSA website, they show the EGR recall but not by vin or vehicle. FCA said it would be a few months till the recall was sent out, (my guess is based on parts)

    Thanks all for responses. Dealer had not been notified yet of the upcoming recall

    It popped up in my recalls for my VIN today. The VB1 link goes to a "not found" page so far, and says parts are not available yet but the ball has started rolling I guess...
