As many of you may know I am looking to buy a new/used trackhawk...unfortunately in AR they are hard to find.

Fort Smith got a used 2018 w/ 9.7k miles. They gave me the autocheck which didn't really add up so I spent 40bucks on a Carfax.

What I learned is that it originated in Georgia as a personal vehicle and then was sold at appx 9.4k miles

IT WAS SOLD BACK TO FCA for what reads on report:

Vehicle was reacquired by the manufacturer pursuant to applicable state consumer warranty laws or to promote customer satisfaction. Reason provided: FOUL SMELL IN PASSENGER COMPARTMENT



what the heck does that mean?

Could I call SRT or JEEP or FCA to try and figure out?

Fuel smell, not foul smell. I looked into getting that one as well. Yes, it was a FCA buyback. So I passed on it. They offered it to me for $71K

The early production 2018 THs had the fuel line recall that would cause not only the engine stalling issue but also the fuel smell through the fresh air inlet right into the cabin. More than likely It was recalled by FCA and used to study the failure in the fuel lines which lead them to find the defect in the machinery’s alignment that assembled and crimped the early TH fuel line to the engine incorrectly. Their is a TSB out on this. Chances are that TH has been gone through with a fine tooth comb looking for defects fixed and sent back out to a dealer.
