New HELP 2006 Wrangler

Hi all,
I'm new- just wrote my introduction a few days ago. I picked out a used 2006 Jeep at a dealer and it failed the emissions test. The dealer said it was because it was sitting on the lot and hadn't been running for a while. Today we took it for a very long drive and it still failed. My question is should I still buy this Jeep? It drives well and everything "seems" ok- I am by no means car smart though. Thoughts? Is this something relatively minor or should I walk away now?
Thanks!
Mal

Mal, Welcome Aboard! IMO if it doesn't pass the emissions test, don't buy it.

My friend has a POS car and it passes and I won't ride in her car...no way. Walk away if not run. IMO

They should be willing to fix it prior to the sell. Don't buy it until they fix it and guarantee the work.

I call BS on that. Did the inspection station give you a reason why it did not pass? Is the CEL on? Can you pull a code? Here it is illegal to sell a vehicle without a current emissions certificate. I wouldn't put too much faith in this dealership as it seems that they are not being honest with you. Personally, I would walk away from it.

Walk away. A private seller might be able to get away with this but a dealership who is trying to pressure you into buying without full disclosure of why it won't pass is trying to get rid of a problem. Don't buy it and find a bigger dealership like a true jeep dealer

Is this a Jeep dealership? I could see an independant trying this but not a Jeep Dealer. How many miles are on it? It could be as simple as 02 sensors or catalytic converter(which is covered for 8yr/80k miles).

Thanks for all your help gang! I'm gonna leave it, and keep looking. Not worth it. I think they are trying to pull one over on me being female and relatively young. *shakes fist*
Luckily, I have my Jeep Wrangler gang at my fingers tips
