Chrysler launches on-line ‘Owner’s Center’

Let’s face it, maintaining a vehicle can be a lot of work.  The last thing drivers want to remember is what service appointments need to be made, when they are due, and what exactly needs to be done. Chrysler is helping to lighten the burden a bit by launching a new online resource for Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge,Ram, and Fiat* drivers in the Fredericksburg area and beyond.

Known as The ‘Owner’s Center’,  the online website covers each of the major Chrysler brands, including the luxury automaker themselves, Jeep, Dodge, Ram and Fiat*, and they run in conjunction with the company’s parts brand, Mopar. After entering your vehicle’s VIN number, you have full access to all of the website’s features and benefits, and the best part is that once you have created a log-in, there’s no need to create a log-in for the other brands’ websites. For instance, someone who owns a Jeep and a Fiat vehicle could log in from the same user name and check both vehicles’ information.

An important letter from Safford Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Fredericksburg’s Director of Pre-owned Sales, Jeff McCallum:

I wanted to touch base with you in reference to a selling extravaganza here at the Pre-Owned Super Center of Safford Auto of Fredericksburg!

We are tracking to break a company wide record that has existed for over 30 years and would like you to partake in the festivities. Right now, more than ever, we need to make every deal possible, no matter the price.

If you have a vehicle to trade-in, please make us aware. We are even willing to buy your car without you buying one from us. We need pre-owned vehicles to help us sustain our inventory levels with the amount we are selling. Your car will be worth more to us now then it ever will be. 

Getting straight to the point, we have over 250 Pre-Owned vehicles available that are retail-ready and looking for a new home. We are offering huge discounts – some that are many thousands below retail value! Your trade in could be worth a huge amount more than any “trade-in” value you’ll find.

We want your business and will find a way to make this event so special that you will talk about it with family and friends for years to come. With the huge price reductions and high trade-in values, no one beats a Safford Auto Super Center deal, NO ONE!  From Maine to Miami, the deals here at the Super Center are the best deals around, period. No store is willing to do what we are to make your dreams a reality!

On top of everything, we are passing on Virginia State Safety Inspections for the life of your new vehicle, and we are giving you two years of oil changes. Add this to everything else and it’s a win / win situation!

Please contact me directly to schedule an appointment to take advantage of this special event.

Thank you and congratulations ahead of time!
