I'll start off by saying I'm a Jeep newbie. I'm currently looking at an '06 Wrangler 65th anniversary edition that has 35,000 miles. The interior/exterior look great aside from a few dings on the hood (hail?) that could be fixed.
I need advice on a couple issues.
1. It has had a leaking rear axle seal that has been replaced. What would cause this on a Jeep with 30k miles? Is this a big deal?
2. It has a creaking clutch that I didn't notice the first time I drove it. It sounds like it's coming from the transmission.
Here's a vid of what the clutch creaking sounds like. Watch all the way to the end. This is exactly what the one I'm looking at sounds like.
If the dealer fixes these issues, should I buy it? Is $16,500 too steep?
