I'm looking hard at a 2015 Overland with ~60k miles on it, for ~$26k. Cosmetically it looks great, and I like the idea of the diesel engine, but want to make sure this thing isn't a lemon.

The vehicle is at Carmax, and they offer an extended 5 year 100,000 mi warranty from when I purchase, which sounds like a good idea to me.

My question to this group is, is this a decent buy or am I going to regret it? Should I get the extended warranty?

Thanks!

I have a 2015 Summit that I bought after someone's 3 year lease ended. We love it. Doesn't have as many miles, but it's been a great vehicle.

On the extended warranty, it may depend on what you're worried about having break. As part of the Ecodiesel settlement, there will be a pretty good extended warranty applied to the engines. I can't remember the exact terms offhand though.

Here's what I put in another thread regarding what the extended warranty covers. It lost the bullet point formatting from the settlement statement I received.

Extended Warranty Period. For all Eligible Vehicles that receive the Approved Emissions Modification on or before the Recall Target Deadline (as defined in paragraph 37 of the US-CA Consent Decree), the Extended Warranty Period (as defined in paragraph 45 of the US-CA Consent Decree) shall be the greater of (i) 10 years from the date of initial sale or 120,000 actual miles on the vehicle odometer, whichever comes first; and (ii) 4 years or 48,000 miles, from date and mileage of installing the Approved Emissions Modification on the vehicle, whichever comes first.

Subject to standard limitations that must be identified to Eligible Owners and Eligible Lessees, which may set forth exclusions like accident, abuse, neglect, or installation of non- certified parts, and applicable existing warranty provisions that will remain in effect, the Extended Warranty shall cover the cost of all parts and labor needed to repair the items listed below. • Catalysts o Diesel Oxidation Catalyst/Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Assembly o Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) Catalyst • Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) System o DEF Injector o DEF Injector Controller o DEF Storage Tank o DEF Delivery Lines o DEF Concentration Sensor (2016 Model Year Ram 1500 and Jeep Grand Cherokee only) o DEF Supply Module, Pump, & Temperature Sensor Unit • Parts of the Fuel System o Low Pressure Fuel Pump Module & Level Unit o Fuel Injectors o Fuel Rail o High Pressure Fuel Line o High Pressure Injection Pump & Regulator Unit • Parts of the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) System o EGR Cooler Tubes o EGR Cooler o EGR Valve o EGR Temperature Sensor o EGR Cooler bypass actuator

Additionally, the Extended Warranty shall cover the cost of any OBD Diagnostic Scan for malfunctions that trigger the OBD Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL), regardless of whether the malfunction is attributable to a part that is covered under the Extended Warranty.
