Dodge vehicles are known for their award-winning driver appeal, and they’re especially attractive to folks shopping for used models. That’s because pre-owned Dodge models offer the same enthusiastic spirit — and many of the same fantastic features — as their brand-new counterparts. There are two big differences, though: First, as we’ll explain below, used vehicles can usually save you significant amounts of money over new ones. Then there’s the fact that you can buy your used Dodge from Miramar Car Center, where we pledge to help and serve our customers to the best of our abilities!
That impressive bang for the buck we just mentioned above is a key reason for driving a pre-owned Dodge car, SUV, minivan, or truck instead of a brand-new model. And at the root of it all is depreciation. Almost any new vehicle loses a substantial chunk of its value to depreciation just by being on the road. With a one-year-old vehicle, you’re typically looking at a depreciation rate of 20% to 30%, and that can more than double after a car has been in service for five years. The bottom line is that it's the new-car owner that suffers from depreciation the most, while the used-car shopper turns that story around to see a major discount in pricing. And remember, auto insurance is usually based on value as well. That turns into additional savings with a used Dodge since it should cost you less to insure than a new one, even with the exact same equipment and coverage. There may be some difference in condition, of course, but you can boost your confidence in what you buy by looking at a used-vehicle history report. Easy to go get, these reports can fill you in on key information from a vehicle’s past, including details about past owners, service records, and potential accidents.
Today’s Dodge family, including the pre-owned editions, can showcase its fair share of features, too. As a result, you can take advantage of smart safety technologies, rewarding infotainment, lux amenities, and powerful performance enhancers in many of the used Dodge models we have on our lot right now.
Let Miramar Car Center put you on the fast-track to Dodge ownership with easy financing, excellent customer service, honest pricing, and a wide selection of top-notch models. We’re also constantly refreshing our inventory, so our stock of Dodge vehicles can change on a daily basis. That said, mainstays of the modern Dodge lineup include great choices like these:
The Dodge brothers — Horace Elgin and John Francis — were engineering entrepreneurs who went from opening a bike shop in 1897 to building engines for the likes of Oldsmobile and Ford in 1901. After supplying parts to other early automakers for more than a decade, they went all-in on the automobile by founding the Dodge Brothers Motor Company in 1913. The brand’s first car came the following year as the 1914 Dodge Model 30/35. Unfortunately, both Dodge brothers died in 1920, and the company ended up as part of Chrysler Corporation in 1928. The Dodge brand saw years of success under Chrysler, expanding into nearly all segments of the market with some of the industry’s top muscle cars, trucks, and family sedans. At one time, Dodge even sold the incredible Viper sports car. Nowadays, Dodge keeps that focus on enthusiasts alive with a smaller lineup that still includes some of the fastest cars in the world.
