Feasibilty of 2010 Commander Limited

I have spent the last 4.5 hours stuck on the side of the road with my 2010 Chrysler 300 RWD and a bad snowstorm in N.E. Ohio. I have had 4x4s since 1993, trading my 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 Cummins Turbo Diesel last year for the 300. Big mistake. Now that I have solidified my decision to get back to a 4x4, I have just found a 2010 Commander Limited, Hemi, AWD. Doing a little bit of reading, it seems you all know the Commander pretty well. Commander has 57XXX miles, is Stone White with Agate leather interior, and looks to be in excellent condition. What should I look at before buying this vehicle. Comes with a 2 year, 100,000 mile powertrain warranty, and is a certified used vehicle.

I welcome any and all feedback.

Thanks,
Tiny

Have it looked over by a good mechanic for any obvious signs of neglect.... otherwise you're pretty much good to go, especially since its a "certified preowned" since most dealers wont sell a vehicle like that if there's any known issues.

At 60k do the normal 60k maintenance with pretty much includes all the fluids, spark plugs, etc and you'll be starting your ownership at a good point.

Enjoy

Would also take a gander at the tranny cooling lines in the front left of the engine bay as viewed at the front of the vehicle to ensure the connections aren't leaking.

That is good to know, thank you both. Hoping to go look at it this Friday, and if the numbers can be worked out provided all is well mechanically I might take the plunge. Good point about being certified, if there were issues they would not do that. Makes me more enthused. If this weather breaks, hoping to see it Friday.

Is $25K a reasonable number for such a vehicle? 57XXX miles, Limited, new tires, fully inspected? From the photos looks almost immaculate.

Prices vary by region... but $25k seems high.

I basically bought the same vehicle; certified pre-owned, fully loaded Limited, immaculate condition, but with only 22k miles on it for ~$23k out the door two years ago.

Check blue book values for your region. Find out if it was a lease or a trade-in. There's always more room for negotiations on trade-ins because you know what they paid for the vehicle.... whereas with a lease they may already be hurting if they made a bad deal up front.
