Just because you want something shiny and new in the driveway doesn’t mean that you have to pay sticker price.

Certified pre-owned cars are now the way to make that happen while not only saving you thousands off of the regular price, but also adding peace-of-mind with a warranty that often beats those standard offers from the factory.

Just one glimpse of the selection at Cabral Chrysler Jeep Dodge will more than likely leave you thinking you’re staring at brand new cars – like the 2010 Dodge Charger that’s currently available with the program, and the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 that typically comes with a sticker price somewhere around $55,000.

“It’s a great way to save five or ten thousand dollars while still enjoying a car that in most respects is better than new,” said Cabral Sales Associate Jack Smith. “Somebody else drove it off the lot when it was brand new, so that depreciation doesn’t have to fall on your shoulders.

“And when you factor in the warranty that’s added and all of the perks, it’s really a great buy.”

On top of having to pass a 125-point inspection, each certified pre-owned vehicles comes standard with a six-year, 80,000-mile limited powertrain warranty to accent the three-month, 3,000-mile max car warranty.

Both carry a $150 deductible.

And if something were to ever go wrong with that certified pre-owned vehicle, the program includes full five-point roadside assistance – towing, fixing a flat, gas, locksmith service and a jumpstart – for the life of the six-year, 80,000-mile warranty (all warranties are based on the date of manufacture.)

Cabral will even cover a rental car for up to five days at $35 a day as long as the car is still under warranty.
As if that wasn’t enough, each model comes with a CarFax vehicle history report to make sure that it wasn’t flooded, burnt, or salvaged, and three-months of free Sirius satellite radio is included in each car purchased.

“I have a truck right now that’s three years old but it only has 6,000 miles, and another that only has 600 miles,” Smith said. “When you think about how much money you’re saving because they’re pre-owned, it really does make a lot of sense.”

Cabral Chrysler Jeep Dodge Suzuki is located at 1145 W. Yosemite Avenue at the corner of Union Road. For more information, call 823-1148 or visit them on the web at
