    Default Looking for info on a used 2018 Unlimited Sahara



    Hey folks,

    A friend in northern Illinois is considering buying this Jeep. Use will be 99% street driving / winter snow.

    I'm looking for opinions / info - things to watch out for, etc when considering this Jeep.

    3.6L V6 24V VVT

    Seems like lots of miles for such a new jeep. Also an awfully high axle ratio. I thought mine at 3.73 was high.

    That's the standard ratio for the JL.

    Isn't 12K national average for miles per year?

    `gotta go for gas mileage.

    My guess is that the tire size would likely remain stock (unless that bug bites and they move to Utah or Colo)

    Perhaps that’s avg mileage. I have 99k on my 2012

    15k-20k if you are me!
    My 2021 JL was purchased mid-October and it has over 13k miles already.

    With that many miles it means this Jeep was on the road and not in the shop, so that’s a good sign!!
    Cant believe how high used vehicle prices are right now…..

    I didn't look at price the first time. $40k is a long ways from the "winter beater" that folks drove in the midwest when I lived out that way.

    My 2005 Jeep and 2012 Subaru both are still under 100k miles. 12-15k miles/year sounds awful to me.

    Given that that's just new enough to be a JL, it should have a better transmission than the JK's given how they were prone to popping out of gear back into neutral. I haven't heard of any issues with automatics of either gen, though.

    Edit: just noticed that's an auto anyway - disregard.

    haha yeah we put about 25k on the Denali in the last 12 months and yeah the price of used vehicles is absolutely nuts right now, someday something will have to give with this inflation. i think the fed raised the rates 0.5% which is almost unheard of

    Looks good to me...given our current economics, I don't think the price is unreal.

    I wish to pass along a gracious Thank You from Diann who was looking for info.

    She went with the buyout option on her currently leased Jeep (just don't ask me what it is - not 30 years old, nice black paint, 4 doors, hard top, windows without zippers).

    surprisingly enough, the buyout option is actually really a great deal with the prices of things lately. before my wife's wreck, we were working on our lease buyout because the buyout price was $10-13k cheaper than buying something else. and we were given $11k from insurance when she wrecked it!
