That's a great number. I'm trying to trade my '14 w/ 84k miles & they won't even give me KBB trade-in. Granted $24k is "replacement" cost. I think I'm going to start driving it like I stole it... worse case, I would start fitting in with the rest of the f***ed drivers.Not sure the year/miles of your truck but that doesn't seem too bad, now you get to shop for a new one!
Steve.......and we are his fireplace contractors. I manage from our head office. He used to schedule through me before he passed that over to Joe.your right. I asked Aaron if he knew anyone with a eco on that site and he didnt know anyone. What is your first name and company

I lived in Shelburne for 17 years before moving to Oro-Medonte two years ago. I knew that the only thing going on in Shelburne for someone to drive to for work would have to be his job site.
I wish I was getting 24k lol I am walking away with 5k after my deductible. The 2500 I looked at today was very well kept im a little worried about the mileage though. Its got 72k$24k would put a nice dent in the down payment on a 2500...assuming you were not upside down the payments for the ED.
hopefully this thread gets back on topic.
let us know what you decide regarding a replacement.
Not surprised at all the FCA is passing the buck...I love my Mopars, but their customer care leaves something to be desired.
**** FCA, after 50+ years of driving Mopars I'M DONE. My Eco has spent more time in the dealers hands than EVERY other Mopar I have had in my 50 plus years of driving them. When Fiat bought the company I knew we were in for this kind of shit. I spent 25 of those 50 years working on the vehicles for a living, and the reason Fiat left the US orignally was no one would buy their JUNK, and they have returned and turned a good American Company into JUNK.Wow I just received this from FCA:

I say bullshit.
I dont think its to bad of a price its a laramie with everything minus a moonroof. I can get it for 35k out the door.If it’s a well kept 2500 Cummins, I personally wouldn’t have any concerns at all with 72k for mileage...
Depending on pricing it’s usually better to let someone else take the new vehicle depreciation hit ..
Check the front crankshaft seal for leaking, It seems like all the Cummins 6.7’s eventually start leaking from this seal ... It’s a very easy fix , usually around 400.00 replacement cost...
worth looking at for a little wiggle room on pricing....
My brothers 2018 Cummins with 24 k started sweating oil , he had it replaced under warranty.. My 2016 Cummins 44k still dry ....
