2011 high milage hemi expectations?

Are there any members that have 100,000+ miles on an 2011 WK2 with the hemi?

How are they holding up? What are the reasonable lifetimes of these jeeps?


I'm at 270,000 miles on my patriot and I want to pick up a GC without picking up a new car payment.

Thanks for the replies.

It's a hit or miss kind of a thing when it comes to car luck. My 2011 V6 has been bullet proof and I'm currently at 73k miles. All until now of course lol. It's currently at the dealer because of a misfire. I'm hoping it's either a coil pack or plug. Either way, small things like that are expected and I chalk it up to wear and tear.

Chances are if we ever replace our WK2, it'll be with another Jeep.

Good luck with your hunt.

I'm blown away by the value the wk2s are holding.

Does $20,000 for a 2011 laredo with hemi approaching 120,000 miles seem like a bad idea?

I cant speak for the 3rd gen hemis since i have an 83k 05 5.7. That mileage is a little scary. 4 years max with 120? That's about 30k per year. That's 10 oil changes, change both diffs oils, 16 new spark plugs per year with whatever else had problems. If they followed the recommended service for it. If your dead set on it then look into the service record thoroughly and hope they took care of it. Best of luck!

That seems nuts. I am sure if you look thoroughly that you could do much better. At that point, I'd buy new because that car is more than 50% used up. So that car with 1/2 life left would mean you're paying $40k for that car and that's the worse 1/2 life. But given that I got a 2013 Overland with 22.5k miles and a hemi (and tech package) for under $34k several months back I'm not buying that you can't do better.

Terrible price for those miles. We paid $24K for a 2011 WK2 Laredo w/Hemi and 42,000 miles on it.
