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.
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.
