Looking to buy Dec 2013 build "buy back"

Hello all,

My name is Race. 2nd post here. Great place. I have been watching the forum for 2 years now, wanting a Eco diesel badly.

I currently drive a 2002 wrangler, upgrading to a jgc. I am struggling between saving money for 6 more months or purchasing a used "dealer buy back". Any thoughts?

The buy back is a 2013 white overland loaded eco diesel. It has 6300 miles and factory warrenty. Originally from CA, December 2013 build. The information I have says it had the high pressure fuel pump replaced and the following modules reprogrammed:

7/29/14
1: power train module
2:amplifier, transmission, hvac control modules
7/3/14
3: body control module
4: engine control module

This car is at a great price, with warrenty left. I would buy the max care 8/120.. Can anyone here run the VIN and give me some extra info? I don't want it to be in the shop all the time, sense it still is close to 40k. If I don't get this, I would buy a new base limited, but this one has all the bells and whistles.

Any info/ advice would be appreciated.

Question...

This is a manufacturer's buyback... for whatever the reason. For almost $40K, are you willing to risk buying someone else's problem?

Re: Looking to buy Dec 2013 build "buy back"

We are considering selling our fully loaded 2014 Overland it has around 9,000 miles on it and is in excellent like new condition. It has never been in any accidents and it has no issues. I do not think it has a single scratch on it. pm me if interested. It's not a buy back and has had all of the updates done to it. Located in Maryland - My wife likes our Minivan more than the GC It was built in Feb 2014 . I own the vehicle it is paid off. We would sell it for not much more than what you are looking at now.
It also has 7/70 Chrysler Maxcare warranty on it.

A december 2013 build is a model 2014. There was no model 2013 ecodiesel. Beware of a JGC that had its HPFP replaced. When this pump fails, it almost always fails catastrophically, sending metal shards into the rails, injectors and engine.

Re: Looking to buy Dec 2013 build "buy back"

OP.... Where are you located? I gave back a December build white Overland Ecodiesel with the exact issue you describe with the same approximate mileage and I'm from CA. It was repaired and I actually drove it for approximately 150 miles in order to pick up my replacement so between driving it and working with Jeep, I have a pretty good handle on that particular truck. It would be interesting if it was in fact my give back.
