I found a couple of low mileage 2014 eco diesels at a local jeep dealership. Dealer explained their dealership purchased them from Chrysler and that they were basically customer good will buy backs ( AKA Lemon Law) . He explained that Chrysler bought them back, did the DEF and software updates, changed Cat's and such in November of 2015. They are certified but the Car Fax will show its a buyback and the title will show essentially the same. The interesting part is the price. Fully loaded 2014 2wd Diesel with 7400 miles on it for $28,000 and balance of existing warranty still apply. Pretty tempting. Anyone have thoughts on how well Chrysler has done with their fixes as of late or do you think its going to continue to be more of the same?

David,
We can see that the catalytic converter and the engine control module was replaced on 11/19/15.
When you do a history report carfax or auto check it will say manufacturer buyback/ lemon law.
The tiltle will say manufacturer buyback .You still have the remaining factory warranty with the Jeep.
There is the balance of the 3 year or 36,000 miles mechanical and electrical warranty which ever come first is good until 9/13/2017.
The power train warranty is a 5 year or 100,000 miles which ever comes first good until 9/13/2019 .
You can purchase a Chrysler factory extended warranty.
Thanks Dave

We just purchased an 2014 ecodiesel Jgc and the dealer reprogrammed the transmission when they got it and I have had no issues with this truck it runs and drive like a dream don't let all the negative info you hear or read about this vehicle deter you. Ours was a buy back aka lemon but like I said I've had zero issues we've put almost 15k miles on it since November and we got an excellent deal on it when other dealers wanted top dollar for them!

I purchased a 2014 2wd limited Eco diesel about 7 months ago. It was a factory buy-back with a tad over 6000 miles on it. My wife and I enjoy road trips so we put some serious miles on our cars. we have made 2 long road trips and now have 22,000 miles on the car. The trip we just completed was 6300 miles, we averaged 31.1 mpg for the entire trip. Our total problem since we have had this car was a nail in the drivers rear tire!! My wife gets nervous in traffic so I stay pretty much to speed limits. Speed limit on I-70 in Utah was 80 mph. The car purred like a kitten on both trips. I find the car very comfortable and reliable. When I'm home I frequently tow my 19 foot Boat. You hardly know your towing because of the diesel torque and pulling up a ramp is a breeze. I was concerned about buying a factory buy-back, but this is probably the best buy I have ever made on a car and I have owned many cars. One more note; I bought the car for 24k and the dealer gave me 16k for my 2011 Chrysler 300c which was the very top end of blue book value for my car. I wrote a check for 8500 including tax and transfer and drove away with my new car which I really like.

Yes- congrats on your purchase! You always have to expect some troubles on 1st year of production. I think everything is worked out on them now. I still recommend 'researching the dealer more' to make sure they are competent in servicing it!

I had my 2014 for ten months and it was in the shop for two of those months. They bought it back at 13,000 miles. Maybe they fixed it and maybe they didn't, only the next owner knows that answer.

How do you go about the buy back program? I've had my jeep in the shop for 11 times for check engine. Cat replaced..the whole 9 yards.
