Customer Service You Can Count On

All Star Dodge Ram Jeep Chrysler near St. Louis

We all have had those bad customer service experiences. We recently had one at a well-known St. Louis area restaurant, and it really ruined our evening. We had had great service there before but that night, it was very poor. Consistency seems to be hard for businesses in the customer service industry as of late. There is one place where customer service never has any consistency issues, that place is All Star Dodge near St. Louis. We don’t just want you to take our word for it, we want to share with you some conversations that we recently had with real customers who have shopped at All Star.

This is the most professional dealership that I have ever dealt with. I knew what I wanted before I arrived, and it was delivered with an efficiency that is rare. From start to finish, I was there only 1 hour. From the initial paperwork, to credit check, to financing, to out the door. All was handled professionally. I want to especially give a shot out to Mindy Pluma. Her personality was awesome. -Sheri

Mr. John Horrell offers customer support, advice and solutions in meeting the needs of a customer, like myself. My satisfaction and loyalty to this dealership is based on trust, professionalism, knowledgeable and attitude. -Sam

Customer services is #1 to me. This will be my fourth car from All Star. At first I was thinking about going to a different dealership, but my mind told me, “Why would you do that when Renell always takes care of you?” If something isn’t broke then why try and fix it? Start to finish he always listens on what I want. I will never think about going to another dealership. All Star is family and loyalty goes along way. You’re the best! -Monica

Know the Jeep Patriot

Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Town and Country

The Jeep Patriot at All Star Jeep Dealer near Town and Country is a wonderful SUV that has a lot to offer its drivers and passengers. Today we want to share some information with you about the Jeep Patriot. After all, how can you love something if you don’t know about it?

In the U.S. the Patriot uses either the 2.0 L or 2.4 L gasoline I4 engine. Both front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive are available. The Patriot features two four-wheel drive systems both of which are electronically controlled. The basic four-wheel drive system is called Freedom Drive I. This system is a full-time front-wheel-drive based 4WD/AWD system that is front-wheel-drive when it has traction, but can automatically put up to 20-30% power to the rear wheels, or can be locked in 50-50 below a certain speed. The other system, called Freedom Drive II, is based on Freedom Drive I, but by using the vehicle’s CVT transmission it is capable of a 19:1 gear reduction simulating a low range usually found in vehicles with dedicated transfer cases. The 2.4 L GEMA I4 is an option for the 4X2 model Patriot.

For Europe and Australia, a 2.0 L (1968 cc; 120 cid; 140ps) Volkswagen-manufactured diesel engine is fitted along with a 6-speed manual gearbox. All EU cars are fitted as standard with four wheel drive and a version of the Freedom Drive System that tuned differently from the U.S. versions, but with similar capability to FDII with brake traction control and three switchable electronic stability control and traction control settings for on or off-road use.

The Patriot won 2007 Green 4×4 Award and the 2008 4×4 of the Year in the UK. (This information was compiled from jeep.com and wikipedia.com.)

Grand Cherokee Trackhawk

Jeep Grand Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Saint Charles

There are so many powerful and capable SUV models under the FCA umbrella that sometimes it can be hard to pick just one. Especially when you take into account just how man different trim options each SUV has to offer. Today we want to focus on the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk edition.

“Dodge’s 707-hp Challenger and Charger Hellcat models are loud, instigate bad behavior, and can generate local, rubber-sourced cloud cover with merely a stab of their gas pedals. They’re the vehicular equivalents of a Daytona Beach spring-break hookup, the sort of ride that your dad might high-five you (behind Mom’s back) for buying. But what if there were a Hellcatted vehicle tame enough, relatively speaking, to bring home and introduce to Mother?”-caranddriver.com

The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk is the third Fiat Chrysler vehicle to have the unhinged supercharged V-8 stuffed under its hood, and it’s the quiet Hellcat next door. Not literally, of course—have you heard a blown Hemi V-8 at full whack?—but with standard all-wheel drive mitigating the engine’s tire-spinning proclivities, plus its under-the-radar looks, the Trackhawk can at least pass for an upstanding citizen.

With more traction than any Hellcat yet, the Trackhawk has quite a lot of poke despite its pork—the engine adds 259 pounds over the already heavy 475-hp Grand Cherokee SRT. Nonetheless, Jeep claims it can reach 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. Per Jeep, the quarter-mile is expected to fly by in 11.6 seconds (at 116 mph!), and, with no electronic governor, the Trackhawk is said to surrender to atmospheric resistance at 180 mph.

For more information on the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, head to All Star Dodge Ram near Saint Charles. We are sure that you will want to take a test drive!

Is Buying New Right for You?

New Cars at All Star Dodge Ram in Bridgeton

There is a lot of debate over whether it is best to buy a new or used car. Today we are going to share the benefits of buying a new car from All Star Dodge Ram in Bridgeton. All Star has the latest and greatest selection of new cars in the St. Louis area and we are sure that they will have the right new car for you!

Made to Order — Chances are, you can spec a new car just the way you want it, or at least have the dealer search for one with the right combination of options and interior and exterior colors.

It’s Not Used — Well, duh. A new car hasn’t been in any accidents, hasn’t been mistreated by unknown evildoers, doesn’t smell funny, has seen no wear or tear, and comes with a clean history that includes only being driven off the line, onto a transporter, and around the dealer’s lot.

Warranty — Like the rest of it, the new car’s warranty is untouched. You can buy warranties for used cars or go the certified preowned route, but the best warranty you can get—without paying extra—will be the one that comes with a new car from the manufacturer.

Latest Gizmos — “The newer the car, the more modern the geeky tech that’s packed inside. Multimedia and navigation interfaces are constantly evolving and improving, so if you have to have the latest in gadgets (and don’t want to add them yourself post-factory) the selection will be better in the new-car showroom.”-caranddriver.com

There are so many more great benefits of buying a a great new Dodge, Ram, Chrysler, and Jeep car, truck, or SUV. Learn more at All Star Dodge Ram today!

Jeep Cherokee Start

Jeep Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Glendale

The start of the holiday season always makes us feel nostalgic for days gone by. It gets us thinking of warm feelings and favorite memories. Today we want to take a look back at how the Jeep Cherokee and how it started out. Remember, you can get the latest Jeep Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Glendale.

The Jeep Cherokee is a line of vehicles sold by Jeep under various vehicle classes. Originally sold as a variant of the popular Jeep Wagoneer, the Cherokee has evolved from a full-size SUV to one of the first compact SUVs and eventually into its current incarnation as a crossover SUV. The nameplate has been in continuous use in some form since 1974 and also spawned Jeep’s most successful vehicle, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which was originally slated to be part of the Cherokee’s lineup. The vehicle is named after the Cherokee tribe of Native Americans.

The Cherokee was a redesigned reintroduction of a two-door body style Jeep Wagoneer, with a single fixed rear side window with an optional flip-out section. Previously, a two-door version had been available in the Jeep Wagoneer line from 1963 to 1967), although this had the same pillar and window configuration as the four-door Wagoneer. This replaced the Jeepster Commando, whose sales had not met expectations despite an extensive 1972 revamp. The Cherokee appealed to a younger market than the Wagoneer, which was regarded more as a family SUV.

The Cherokee was marketed as the “sporty” two-door variant of Jeep’s station wagon. The term “Sport Utility” appears for the first time in the 1974 Cherokee sales brochure. A four-door was not added to the lineup until 1977. Other than the base model, the trim levels of the Cherokee included the S (Sport), Chief, Golden Eagle, Golden Hawk, Limited, Classic, Sport, Pioneer, and Laredo.

Knowing Your Compass

Jeep Compass at All Star Jeep Dealer near Ellisville

The Jeep Compass at All Star Jeep Dealer near Ellisville is a well known and popular Jeep model. It has been a fan favorite for a long time but we are sometimes surprised that people just do not know much about this model. Today we want to share with you some exciting new information on the Jeep Compass.

The Jeep Compass launched with much fanfare and has been a runaway hit for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) India. Even exports of the car have begun from India since it’s only made here for all the right hand drive markets across the world. The car launched in multiple variants but it was announced at the very start that the petrol Compass would be delivered later in the year. Well, deliveries began last month and we got our hands on one a few days ago. And what’s more, we also got the automatic variant since many of you have been very curious about the Compass automatic. Jeep only offers the automatic on the 1.4 Multiair turbo petrol and it comes in three variants; which are all front wheel drive only as only the diesel gets the AWD. The base Sport variant comes with manual transmission and the top spec Limited and Limited (O) gets the 7-Speed dual-clutch auto box.

“It’s very smooth through the changes too, though it’s a bit slower to respond in heavy bumper-to-bumper traffic at times. It certainly has the smoothness to go with the Compass’ premium appeal as well as its excellent ride quality. Like its diesel counterpart, the petrol too has the ability to swallow mostly anything that comes its way and can take on potholes or bad roads with ease. The steering feels a tad heavier but the 17-inch wheels glide over mostly all rough surfaces with no complaints.”-auto.ndtv.com

Benefits of Certified Pre-Owned

Certified Pre-Owned at All Star Dodge Ram near Arnold

When you are shopping for a different vehicle, you have a number of great choices! At All Star Dodge Ram near Arnold there are a number of great new, used, and certified pre-owned Dodge, Ram, Jeep, and Chrysler Cars. Today we want to talk about the benefits of buying a certified pre-owned car, truck, or SUV from All Star Dodge Ram!

Only Vehicles in the Best Condition Qualify–Late-model, low-mileage vehicles with clean vehicle history reports are accepted into certified pre-owned programs sponsored by auto manufacturers. If a vehicle does not meet specific criteria, which varies depending on the automaker, it cannot become a CPO vehicle.

Multi-point Inspection and Reconditioning Process–The number of things that a dealer will examine and, if necessary, recondition or replace to meet CPO program standards varies by manufacturer, but generally a CPO vehicle has endured between 100 and 200 individual item checks and is approved by the time it goes on sale as a certified used vehicle.

Extended Warranty Protection–“Many CPO programs extend both the original basic and the original powertrain warranty on a CPO vehicle. Typically, those companies that provide shorter-term time and mileage limits for the original new car warranty are likely to extend their CPO programs by significant amounts in an effort to be competitive. Other manufacturers that provide generous new car warranty coverage may not increase limits for their CPO vehicles as much or at all. Rather, the remainder of the new car warranty is transferred to the new owner.”-jdpower.com

Take a look at the vast selection of certified pre-owned vehicles that All Star has to offer. We are sure that you will find one that you will want to take home today!

Is a Jeep Renegade Right for You?

Jeep Renegade at All Star Jeep Dealer near Clayton

When you are shopping for a new SUV, we know that you have quite a few from which to choose, but we think that you should consider looking at the Jeep Renegade at All Star Jeep Dealer near Clayton. Today we want to share with you some information on this wonderful SUV!

“The Jeep Renegade is the small, fuel efficient, manual 4×4 wagon(ish) the world has been yearning for. What do you need to know before you buy a Jeep Renegade? The Renegade wears the “Jeep” costume pretty well, and the Trailh.comawk can make its way down a road rough enough to send most crossovers scurrying back to the safety of proper pavement. But the little Renegade no Wrangler. That’s a bummer when you’re trying to rock crawl, and a godsend everywhere else.”-jalopnik

Renegade’s true nature as a compact car isn’t as exciting to talk about as off-road abilities but the reality is, it makes for a much better daily drive.

Handling is well-balanced and the brakes are more than strong enough to keep the little car in check. Especially since it’s in no hurry at all to accelerate, even with the bigger 2.4 engine.

In town is the ideal setting for a Renegade as power feels plenty adequate from stopped to 35 MPH and the stubby shape is ridiculously easy to park. The nine-speed automatic transmission stays busy and never seems to make it to top gear, but operates smoothly enough that you’re never going to think about it.

A lot of the Renegade’s “fun feel” is derived from its looks, and you never forget you’re playing Jeep with all the cute “SINCE 1941″ accents around the interior. For more information on the Jeep Renegade, head to All Star today!
