Re: Buy new or used GC?
I don't think I'd buy a GC used, but I did buy my Wrangler used. We're turning in our CR-V lease tomorrow at 43K miles and it ALMOST needs new tires, brakes, and we're probably not far from other major services that should be done after three years. I doubt the dealer will do it before he turns the car around. For all I know, it will end up at auction. Probably what happens to most two- or three-year-old vehicles, but I don't know.
Meanwhile, our 2014 GC was bought back by Chrylser as a lemon, and when I went to look at my owner center one day, I noticed it was still on there. It had been re-sold in upstate NY and had already been back to the dealer for a transmission issue. I don't think I'd buy a used one, especially a good-looking low-miles used one. Most of my used cars I've gone for one-owner, higher-mileage cars and have been good so far. Some of these Wranglers and GC's have been through two or three owners in a very small number of miles. I figure if someone has kept their Jeep for many miles, they've been happy with it and it's one of the "good" ones.
