2007 WK Limited - Good Buy?

My Mom's '01 WJ Limited with the 4.7 apparently has a massive oil leak in the far back of the engine, thing must need two quarts a week added into it. Trying to convince my stepdad to just trade it in, it's a huge hassle to fix it (from what his friend, who is also a Chrysler tech said), and he is pretty lazy...

I found this '07 Limited over at Yark. Looks clean, has the 4.7 w/ 112k miles on the clock, had a few questions.



1.) Asking price is $11,929. For a fairly clean '07 Limited with 112k and Quadra-Trac (may even be Quadra-Trac II, not sure), is this a fair price?

2.) Anything specific with the WK to look out for when test driving or inspecting it?

3.) Can I throw a MyGig RER NAV radio from a later model ('07/'08) in there without any too many additional modifications?

4.) EPA rated it 15/20 mpg. Can anybody chime in with what they average?

5.) It's FlexFuel capable... how would it run on a tank of E85? Is there any noticeable performance hit or economy hit?

Thanks for the help.

Here's the link to the dealer page with all the other specs and info I left out:

First thing would be to check KBB and Edmunds for the fair market value of this unit. Then a CarFax check. The EPA rating is usually the standard for what you can expect. More if you drive carefully, less if you dog it.
I wouldn't put E85 into any vehicle unless I had rented it.
