You may never get the true story, unless you somehow found the original owner.

Dealerships can spin lots of yarn when it comes to "Why did this come back?"

This could just be a trade-in for normal reasons, or they could have been fed up with transmission issues, got it "repaired" and then traded it the first chance they got. I've seen that exact situation on this forum more times than I ever want to read again.

Could it be *too good to be true* ? Sold the next year, such a low price, sat for almost 6 weeks while serviced... Eek...
Explanation: I wrote the post with "unknown build date", then wrote the second post. A few minutes later, I found a pic of the sticker where the build date is listed. So I went back and edited the post... Why it saved on the quote, but not the original, I have no clue!

Also, my KL was built in 2014 and it does not have the 3,2,1 but it hasn't had a transmission failure! (Knock on wood)...

I said "I have this friend" right? Lol, if I bite on this TH, I'm looking to sell it privately, or outright to a dealer. I've gotten quotes between 17-18k...

So here's a bit of back story I was able to dig up on this vehicle. All of this is from other dealers and companies who have no stake in the sale and won't be affected if it sells or not...

The vehicle was owned by an older couple. They bought it in NC mainly used it highway (no off-road... Poor thing). Then I'm guessing they moved to NC or came back to their winter home...

I called the service center where the six-week time period was, and they told me that it was an issue with the uConnect NAV system... There was a bug in the software and the head unit had to be replaced or updated or something... The dealer verified that the six week period was to fix that unit. Same dealership also verified that no complaints were filed and no problems reported.

The couple then brought the TH down to FL where it was then sold to an RV dealer as a trade-in on a RV camper. The rep at the RV dealer didn't find any reports of issues with it, and I asked them to contact the original owner and have them contact me. (Still waiting to see if that happens!)

The guy selling the KL is a small dealer with some other REALLY nice looking vehicles. He had a Mustang in his stock that I was almost drooling over. Lol. He told me that he has been driving the TH and hasn't experienced any issues. In fact he drove it all the way to Michigan (where it is currently) with no problems... They will be towing it back next weekend, and I'm gonna meet them in TN to look it over and drive it a bit.

Actually if it is under the basic 3/36 warranty get the warranty transfered. Both the basic and power train. Then if you want, get an extended service Chrysler max care plan up to the lifetime plan if you are planning on keeping it a long time.
There are dealers that sell online, mentioned here in this forum, at a good discount under msrp. Then you have no worries other than the $100 deductable per visit.

If you do get it, contact Clay @ Zeller motors for a quote on the Unlimited Miles and Years for the $100 Ded.

I am in Upstate SC and just checked the local dealer in Asheville, NC and found a few 2016 Limiteds and one TH there.
I did some research in the area I'm visiting now (Florida), and the area I live in (North Carolina). I found a few new 2016s on dealer lots with all or most of the options I want for about 40-44k. That brings them down to about 32-36k with discounts. That's still out of my price range.

I'm thinking I may be able to deal with this guy and get him down to 25-26k and get 18-22k for mine. (Depending on how I sell it; maybe 18 trade, 20-22 from private sale). If I can work that, the current vehicle will be paid and my new monthly payment will about the same as it is now.

I guess the question still is: if there is nothing mechanical or cosmetic wrong with the TH for sale, is $26k worth it with 25k miles on it?

Looks like $18-20k is possible for sale to dealer. Now just gotta see what we can get the TH down to, and if we want it!
