Car shopper’s guide to buying used Dodge vehicles in Indianapolis

Pre-owned Dodge models offer the same enthusiastic spirit – and many of the same great features – as new Dodge models. 

Dodge vehicles often win awards for their driver appeal, and used Dodge models are especially appealing to individuals looking for a used car. The difference is actually twofold: first, we will explain below how used Dodge cars, trucks, and SUVs are typically less expensive than new ones. Second, Indy Auto Man is here to help and serve you, allowing you to get the best deal on a used Dodge.

Why buy a used Dodge?

Rather than buying a new car, SUV, van, or truck, driving a pre-owned Dodge vehicle offers better value. And at the core of it all is depreciation.

With an average new car, the depreciation rate is 20% to 30% after the first year, and the figure more than doubles after five years of usage. 

Depreciation is the biggest problem for new-car owners, while used-car shoppers tend to benefit from major discounts. And auto insurance is usually determined by the type of car you’re driving. 

Used Dodges can also save you money on insurance since, even with precisely the same equipment, they’ll cost you less compared to new ones. There may be some differences in condition, but you can gain added confidence by checking out the CARFAX vehicle history report before making a purchase.

Getting a used-vehicle history report can fill you in on key information such as past owners, service records, and possible accidents. These reports can be accessed from the car dealer’s website.

Abbreviated Dodge history

The Dodge brothers, Horace Elgin and John Francis, were engineering entrepreneurs who started out as bike repairmen before building engines for Oldsmobile and Ford in 1901. By 1913, they had founded the Dodge Brothers Motor Company after supplying parts to other early automakers for over a decade. In 1914, the Dodge brand unveiled its first car, the Dodge Model 30/35. After both Dodge brothers passed away in 1920, the company became part of Chrysler Corporation in 1928. Dodge enjoyed years of success under Chrysler, with muscle cars, trucks, and family sedans that were among the industry’s best. Moreover, Dodge once offered the famed Viper sports car. Even though Dodge now has a smaller lineup with some of the fastest cars in the world, the company still focuses on its enthusiasts.
