One of my local clients picked up something similar for under 40k out the door (loaded 2011 Overland without adaptive cruise) and had nothing but issues for the three weeks he had it. He had been under the impression that the buy back was due to something minor but found out it had an entire motor swap before he bought it. The only way he found this out was when he took it to another dealer for hard shifting issues and they told him. The carfax and similar auto search services did NOT disclose this. He ended up contacting the selling dealer and threatened civil action. They apologized and took it back in exchange for a brand new Overland for a few hundred dollars more.

Re: Buying a repurchased (lemon) vehicle? HELP!

The real deal-breaker here should be the numbers 4x2... I know everyone has different priorities, but IMHO you never know when that added traction might really come in handy! Either way, look elsewhere this one seems problematic.

Rear underside? The spare is on the INSIDE. Ok, that might have been it if that was really the problem but the statement makes me think of the spares mounted under the vehicle

Exactly what I was thinking. Maybe they were referring to a Durango which has an exterior mounted spare under the third row seats.

Re: Buying a repurchased (lemon) vehicle? HELP!

I'd walk on this...and it's not a great deal especially since it's a 4x2. I didn't pay too much more for my new 2011 Overland (with V6).

BTW, some early limiteds came with the 430 and no Nav. I looked at an early build 2011 limited that had QL but no Nav. some of the early builds had some strange option combos.

The 430 is standard on the Limited. Not the 430N.

Re: Buying a repurchased (lemon) vehicle? HELP!

i didnt see that it was 4x2......... run away from it! that is not a good deal and the 4x2 becomes a large sled on the slightest bit of snow

I think you are speaking of the Laredo X not the limited. The 430N has always been standard on the limiteds.
