original 26,000 purchase and then endless money pit of trying to get it fixed way more than buying a new one. Even if it were perfect 26K for a 2014 too much.

My "cam sensors" error code ended up costing me 2 out of the 4 cam shafts. Replaced under warranty at 107k but then did not trust her 1%. Traded her in on an 18 Recon.

Another "NO" on this one.

Angry eyes grill means absolutely no way, not even if returned to original. For $16k it might be worth a look though.
