Newb here looking at a 2014 Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel

Hey guys

New to this forum not new to forums anyway I'm looking into buying a 2014 Grand Cherokee Limited ecodiesel that is a factory buy back. Disclosure states it was purchased back for Adaptive cruise control not working and airbag light on. Issues have been fixed. I work for a Jeep dealer as a salesman. Guys in service are saying it's a solid vehicle (it's as a different dealer) other salesmen are saying stay far away. Input from you guys? I do have the service history it did have the cat replaced 20xxx miles then looks like they where chasing a problem multiple times replacing the Adaptive cruise eye. Though disclosure states it just needed to be reaimed. What do yall think? It's has all the right options for me and right color and right price.

Late build (May-June) 2014's have way less problems than the early builds. Solid vehicle overall, the engine needs to be driven hard. Get a GDE tune and never worry about problems again. 72,000 miles on my June build 2014 - fantastic vehicle.

You're considering a Jeep that had so many issues that the manufacturer had to buy it back? You should be running from this "deal" and not walking.

Re: Newb here looking at a 2014 Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel

From what I've researched each state has different buyback laws that's why I'm still interested as the mere fact it may have been at a incompetent dealer who couldn't fix the issue

Re: Newb here looking at a 2014 Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel

We had the same two issues with our February 2014 build plus two more.
1. Front ACC sensor problem. They re-aimed, no problems since.
2. Replaced the DPF Cat via the recall.
3. Front brake rotors warped at 20k. Replaced rotors and pads. No problems since.
4. QL wouldn't go into ORA1 and ORA2 at 28k. Pump replaced. No problems since.

We now have 34000+ miles on it, 18k towing a TT and it runs really well without any issues and getting great gas mileage. Everything still tight.

Still under factory warranty but I did purchase the Mopar extended warranty.

Thank you for this so the cat has been replaced. Once this has 52k miles on it it was purchased back with 51k miles looking at history report the Adaptive cruise control was an issue 3 time the air bag light on once the cat was replaced with 27k miles

Re: Newb here looking at a 2014 Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel

I'm thinking under the circumstances it should be a steal price wise. Can you get an extended warranty? If so, I'd consider it. The issues it had aren't serious enough to be debilitating-more annoying.

Sounds like a good deal. We love our 2014 Overland EcoD, early warts and all .

Re: Newb here looking at a 2014 Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel

I'm surprised at how many people would go for this deal.
You wouldnt catch me anywhere near a buyback or a salvage title.
I don't care what kind of warranty they throw at me it's not going to be worth the breakdowns and time wasted.
