Buyback, replacement options

During buyback or replacement, lets say you owe 45000 on your 4 month old JGC OS QII ( purely random hypothetical ;) ),

If you wanted to stay jeep or another chrysler vehicle, perhaps downgrade to a Laredo 4 x 4 from an OS, how would that work? Would their be a new process with a financing company?

reason asking is Chapter 7 unfortunately looks like a reality at this point ( not including the jeep, still paying regularly ) and was wondering if going through a credit approval process will be a part of the process replacing a vehicle that is being financed..

Any ideas?

It won't be automatically. If your current lender will allow it you can simply substitute collateral. It is a question more for the lender than Chrysler. I just did it and chose a new loan because I went to a 4x4 and didn't want to write a check for the difference

Do you have issues that they have not been able to resolve?

Re: Buyback, replacement options
I have had the rear shock squeak issue from day one ( dealer replaced back passenger shock ). Squeak came back within a month but now
unnoticeable in this warmer weather. a thud has appeared in the rear suspension on take off. I am getting prepared for another set of shocks to be installed to fix that acccording to armchair troubleshooting and info from the forums about this known issue. The front end seems sloppy. The ride seems wrong. it is too unforgiving on medium dips and feels like the absorbing portion is not absorbing properly.

I am seeing miscellaneous other problems such as the paint is actually defective and bubbled out in a few places. The paint in general seems to be a bad finish. The finish seems spotty or inconsistent. Some parts are noticeably a different color than others. The black wood door trim has a crack in the finish running opposite the finish. The leather headrests are a different spray pattern or leather than the rest of the seats.

Al that being said I have no confidence in the dealer and the reviews of the service department on line dont make me feel any more comforted. Although I did buy an aftermarket " platinum extended warranty" I have no confidence in that either.

The running back and forth to the dealer and inconvenience is going to cost me more $$ in car service and rental car $$.

So just preparing options in case this baby is going back. In which case I wouldnt mind another JGC but it would be a more basic model without the QL.

I would never buy an aftermarket warrenty. I have been down that road once. You should see if you can get some of your money back and buy a chrysler warrenty. As far as the hard ride have you ever had any work done on the air suspension? If you have I would make sure they used the proper class 5 nitrogen to refill it.

Re: Buyback, replacement options
I think the answer is yes because: They replaced the rear passenger shock.

Not sure if that means opening up the part of the system that houses the nitrogen or if it is not part of that particular system..?

''' the after market warranty i bought becuase there is an additional add on policy for the rims and tires. If the rim breaks they replace it minus 40 dollars. thought that might be worth it in NYC but then again I havent ruined any rims on any vehicle in years... and if I cancel the warranty now it comes off of the back end of the vehicle loan so I would have to purchase a new one outright. but I agrre with you and wish I did get the Chrysler in hindsight
