New

New vehicles are untitled vehicles with less than 500 miles that qualify for the full factory warranty and factory rebates

Deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE unless the vehicle has been misrepresented or if the vehicle fails a professional on-site inspection. We do not refund deposits due to the significant cost of relisting fees, paperwork and lost time due to listing vehicles.

  • Full payment required within 5 days of auction close

Common shipping terms include:
  • Open Carrier - These are open car haulers that carry around 10 vehicles per truck. This is the least expensive means to transport a vehicle, but because of the risk of rock and element damage, we recommend high dollar vehicles get shipped using enclosed carrier
  • Enclosed Carrier - Your vehicle will be transported in a closed container, this eliminates the damage that can come from exposure to the road and the elements, and this is typically several hundred dollars more in cost.
  • Insurance - All vehicles are covered by insurance while in transport, you will need to provide insurance once you take delivery of the vehicle.

Friendly Chrysler Dodge Jeep, Inc. will recommend shipping companies we have had success with. We are NOT the shipping company. All shipping questions and/or concerns should be addressed directly with the shipping company contracted with.

Buyer is responsible for ALL SHIPPING COSTS.

Understanding Credit

An Important Number

Your credit score is a three-digit number credit bureaus develop by evaluating the information on your credit file. Along with your credit history, it has an impact on whether or not you are approved for a mortgage, car loan or credit card and what interest rate you'll pay.

Lending Industry Standard

A borrower's credit score has been proven to be the best predictor of the borrower's repayment performance. The three major credit bureaus generally use a formula developed by the Fair Isaac Corporation (FICO) to analyze the credit information they have on file for you. Your FICO score is what most lenders use to determine the interest rate you'll be offered. Borrowers with high credit scores are usually offered lower interest rates, while those with lower scores may still get credit but will have a higher interest rate.

Figuring Your Score

The three major credit reporting agencies may each assign you a different score, based on the specific information each has on file. But they follow a similar method to come up with that number, which range from 300 to 850. The median score in the United States is 723. Knowing your FICO score and understanding how it is calculated can help you improve your credit profile and thus affect what you pay for financing.

Inspection Process

  • We run a Carfax report on every vehicle we purchase. We want to make sure we only offer quality used vehicles to our customers. Every one of our vehicles will have a Carfax report for you to inspect. If a Carfax link is not showing on a vehicle, please call us and we will get you a copy of the Carfax.
  • Once we purchase a vehicle, we professionally inspect the vehicle using one of our state and Chrysler certified and trained technicians. The vehicles are inspected using the inspection process put in place for the type of vehicle (New, Certified Used, Used, Etc.). All cars are professionally cleaned before sale. If there are any mechanical issues noted during inspection, they are addressed before the car is sold.
