Bought a 14 yesterday and aproblems already

I bought a 14 Laredo yesterday at a dealer 1 1/2 hours from my house. I drove it home yesterday and around today. while I was driving it today at around 200 miles it started missing and stalled twice. I was able to get it to the closest dealer. The CEL code was P0300. On the way to the dealer it started running fine. I drove it 2 hours after I left with no issuses. The mechanic said other than the code it showed nothing while running on the machine.
Any and all advive and opinions are welcome.
BTW I traded a 12 Grand cherokee in for the 14

Re: Bought a 14 yesterday and aproblems already

They were closing in 20 mins and on the way there it stopped doing it.
He let it run on the machine and nothing came up after he cleared the code.

Re: Bought a 14 yesterday and aproblems already

Ultimately it's your money and decision to make and honestly if I were in that situation with problems already that the dealer can't resolve, I wouldn't be buying and would hold off till they can get me what I want. Is it new or used? If new, it could be a lemon or something missed during manufacturing that can be resolved, but if it used, that might be why it's back at the dealer for sale again.

Re: Bought a 14 yesterday and aproblems already

From what you are saying. If you have not signed the papers yet. I would pass. Dont even thing twice about it. It could be something simple but I would just go on your first impression. Pass on it.

Re: Bought a 14 yesterday and aproblems already

I did sign a buyers agreement but not the loan docs. Ironically I mailed them right before we went out for the day. I had to mail them because my wife wasn't there.

Re: Bought a 14 yesterday and aproblems already

Unfortunately computers hic-cup once in awhile. This is true of the one on your desk and the multiple ones in vehicles.

If the problem you experienced has not returned, and everything else is good, I wouldn't be concerned. That doesn't mean the vehicle will be 100% trouble free. But there are no guarantees another one will be trouble free.

I had some issues early on. I have to make an appoint soon, for an oil change. I've had no reason to visit the dealer since February.

Congrats, and enjoy your new Jeep!

Stay clear of "The Sky is Falling" crowd. Their leader, Chicken Little, can ruin a good night's sleep.
