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?

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
