Help! Found a Great Deal on 2016 Durango Limited... is it worth the risk?


Not a lease question, this is Off Ramp! Found a fantastic deal on a 2016 Durango Limited… However, when I asked the dealer how the former owner had put on 38000 miles in one year, he told me it’s from Enterprise-rent-a-car. YIkes, worth the risk??

It’s obviously not ideal but he’s selling it for $26k and I’ll be trading in my current Durango for $20k… so tough to beat a 4 year upgrade, better options, less miles, and a car my wife loves for net $6k (plus tax) out of pocket. It’s been a great family car for us, I’m just not sure about all those rental miles !?

A non-rental 2016 Durango would probably sell for 30-35k with a “normal” amount of miles. There would still be a warranty on the truck until the odometer hits 50k.

Thanks guys for your wisdom.

Thank you @nyclife , I will look at these closer in the morning. Good finds!

In my opinion it is risky. Used to work in a rental place in my college days and all we did is oil changes even those at lengthy intervals. 38000 miles is way to many. You can take a risk at 20k range though depending on deal.

Thanks guys, appreciate your thoughts. I’ve decided to keep looking, not worth the risk. The deal breaker was that there was no manufacturers warranty included. :grimacing:

Rental miles are like dog years, multiply it by 7. :slight_smile:

Was that because it was a rental or because the 36K mileage threshold had been exceeded?
