Q: Why should you test-drive a car?

A: Test driving is a vital part of the car-buying process. Let's say that you are almost sure that you want to buy the Jeep Grand Cherokee, but you aren't sure what all of the features do. Our dealers will, of course, explain how they operate, but the best way to really get a grasp on them is to test them out for yourself during a test drive.

Q: How do you schedule a test-drive?

A: You can schedule a test drive by calling our Detroit Lakes Dodge dealership at (877)-854-8448.

Service & Parts

Q: What are OEM parts?

A: OEM, or Original Equipment Manufacturer, are parts that are created and tested directly from the manufacturer. This means that your car will perform at its highest potential due to the precise and well-designed engineering of each piece.

Q: How often should I rotate my tires and why?

A: Tires should be rotated every 6000 miles, or roughly every six months. This evens out the wear of your tires and thus the life expectancy of your tires increases.


Q: What does it mean to get pre-approval?

A: Pre-approval is when you fill out the finance application and find out right away if you are approved for a car loan from Detroit Lakes Chrysler Dodge & Jeep.

Q: What is a Kelley Blue Book® Trade-In Value?

A: This is a tool on our website uses the trusted Kelley Blue Book data to determine the value of the car that you trade in. Using information, such as mileage and model details, of your current car will help you understand how much value will be put towards your new purchase.
