New from PA searching used

Hi, we own a 1999 GC and are looking to replace it with a used GC. Right now we are looking at 2011's. But, on two different vehicles offered by two different dealers, the CARFAX service history reports both indicated that the steering gear was replaced. Is this a problem, for this model year...?

Re: New from PA searching used

If you're looking at the V-6 be wary there's a problem with some of the heads. Depending on the build date you should look at the posts, and ensure you don't have this issue which could be costly if the vehicle isn't covered.
Welcome, and good luck
