Nothing happened post 3/14 in the build to change this.

Unless manufacturing defects in CV boots caused change by osmosis................

Here you go osmosis. That's just one example.

Re: 2014 Summit...with pinstripe?

I'd be quite leary of a real low mileage 2014 Summit. It could have been plagued with issues. Anyone willing to lose their rear that soon, was wanting to dump it for a reason. If it were a dealer demo, that would be different. It doesn't sound like the dealer has a clue where it came from. No was I'd even drive 60 min to see it. I'd buy new at this price point.

Re: 2014 Summit...with pinstripe?

The production date is 2/14 should I be concerned about that or is this just a myth? The vehicle is still under warranty for a couple years. If it checks out and I can get it for the right price I think I could save myself a few grand on an almost new Summit...

It could also be that someone purchased it and then got over their head with the payments and traded it in for a vehicle with a cheaper monthly payment.
Probably worth seeing if there is a transferable service plan/extended warranty on it.

If you get the VIN, any dealer should be able to look up the history.

I think the OP knew that.
They may have been questioning the advice to look for 3/14 or newer vehicles, as I sure as heck would--having a 5/13 build that has had only minor enough stuff I tend to leave it alone until oil change time.

You are fine. Crazy up there is basing this "theory" by referencing his post stating he hasn't had issue with his after 800 miles.

800 miles is certainly a true testament to a vehicle's long term reliability.

I'm not sure how I've been able to put thousands of miles on mine with a 1/16/14 build date based on his theory............

Did you experience them, or are you just repeating them?
Granted the V6 transmissions seem more prone to issues than the V8/Diesel.

Electrical problems? WHAT electrical problems other than the loose ground that is pretty much a Jeep GC tradition way back to the original ZJs.

Re: 2014 Summit...with pinstripe?

Well a 2014 summit for sale at a Toyota dealership is fishy to me. Most likely had lots of issues. From what I have been reading in these forums earlier builds had lots of problems.


Bought a 14 yesterday and aproblems already
