Had i seen many trips to the dealer for service i probably wouldn't have pulled the trigger on the deal.
I was wondering about that. Why did this only have 6K? I always suspect that on any super low mileage car.

Some people had a tough time getting issues resolved and going through it can leave a bad taste. Hopefully all the issues are resolved.

Like some folks could not live with the way the transmission was. I could have and would have but it's so sweet now.

You might be able to still get lifetime warranty on it. Dealers tend to overcharge. There are reputable places on line to get it cheap.

Good Luck.

The dealer told me that the guy who bought it ended up needing something bigger and traded it in after having it for about 4 months. I know better than to believe anything a car salesman tells me so i asked Milous to pull the service history for me to look for anything unusual. Had the car been to the dealer for service lets say 5-10 times during that 4 month period, that would have been a huge red flag and i would have just assumed that whoever got rid of it did so because they were having problems that couldn't be fixed. Luckly, the service record just shows an oil change and a program update both done on the same day at around 3500 miles.

So you are saying the service record looks good? And the dealer was being honest?

I was confused by your reply that I thought your were saying it had many service visits.

Re: Picked up my Overland yesterday

Congratulations. A 12 hour initial drive is a good way to see if you like the vehicle. I guess you do.

The indigo interior is one of the reasons I went with an Overland. A year later I'm still happy with that choice.

We do expect pictures ... when the snow lets up a little.
