2014 with high mileage?

So I'm shopping around right now for a used SRT. I found a 2 owner 2014 local to me with 90,000 miles at a very attractive price of $32,000. Any high mileage owners out their? What are your opinions?

I wouldn't hesitate if it's a great price. Just go over it carefully. My 15 has been reliable except for the motor I wrecked and the two rear ends from abuse lol.

I bought my 2014 a little over a year ago and it had 60k on it (one owner). The car was clean and I paid 44k for it, which at the time was one of the cheapest 2014+ SRTs in the country I think. I have since only put about 7k miles on it and it has been in the shop 5 times. Twice for wheels that would not hold air ...which ended up being corrosion/oxidation on the wheels themselves ($450 to clean THAT mess up) The other 3 times was for a starter that the spealership misdiagnosed twice before getting it right. Still love driving it, and I expected some issues being an FCA product, so it is what it is. I have a 1 mile commute to work however, and I am not sure I would trust my particular SRT on a lengthy daily commute in traffic.

I think another member was looking at that car....

I mean if the price is right.... Considering you can get a 2014 with less than 50,000 miles for $39,000 ish...id be willing to pay that over the $32,000. Plus you can still get a Maxcare warranty for a couple grand and protect it until 100,000 miles.

The thing is when that jeep gets to 100,000 miles which is just around the corner, the resale value is going to be shit. I'd have a hard time believe with $90,000 miles that the paint doesn't have rock chips, and the interior a bunch of wear. Look it over carefully. I mean if it was a commuter and taken care of....and you have no worry about warranty because you're going to mod it, and or can do your own work on it...

Make sure the brakes, calipers, tires are all 100% new. Look for wear items and how it drives. Listen for creeks, look at the door and sunroof seals. Then offer $29,000. I wouldn't pay over 30k for that may miles.
