2015 SRT questions

I've purchased many vehicles in my time and am looking a certified pre own 15 SRT with 17000 miles and brand new rubber all the way around.

Having said that what should I be looking out for in a SRT in particular when buying used? Any common issues that I should hone in on?

I've noticed flipping through several carfax SRT anywhere around 12000-19000 miles rotors brakes being replaced. I'm assuming this is normal for being a heavy vehicle.

I'm coming from a new 2014 overland so sort of know about software updates recalls etc

Thanks for any feedback.

Yes, rotor replacement before 20k miles is fairly common, as is tire change. I would particularly look out for transmission service. The transmissions tend to be sensitive so I would avoid one that has been in the shop in the past. My 2 cents.

Thanks! I'm definitely aware of the tranny quirks and will be asking for the service log. It was sold and serviced from same dealer so I will be like a computer virus in their system.
