Going to check out this 2011, 3.6R, Limited today. Any thoughts on specifics I should be looking for or asking about? The OB has around 27K miles. Looks clean, and I hope we can negotiate a fair price.

Thanks,

Look for a build date(drivers door frame) of 3/11 or later. That's when the factory addressed the "shaker" issue.

After the dealer fixed my 'shaker' issue, all that remains is the memory as there is no issue with my car anymore. It is important to keep an eye on the tire rotation and balance and to get rid of the OEM tires. You could make that part of your deal with the seller. I know I would, as the OEM tires suck.

Check the service history and assure it hasn't been involved in an accident. Other than that, check for oil leaks and see how it drives. Ours was built in ~ September, 2010 and it drives straight & doesn't shake. No oil leaks, either.

Awesome info, thanks for all the tips. I think we got a pretty good deal, Manufacture date is 10/10, so we'll have to see about the "shaker" issue. The dealer was pretty good, but I couldn't get them to throw anything in, definitely will get new tires when they are due.


Thanks,
