Great stop for a super hassle free visit. Employees were all very polite and efficient.Karah HutchisonI had a great experience with a service advisor. I came in to see why my fob remote wasn’t working properly and going through batteries quickly. Conclusion, my fob was failing and needed to be replaced. I was also made aware of recalls that my truck has and was able to get it fixed within the hour. He was polite and had a smile. Happy customer!R SchoemeyerWe went in today looking for a Wrangler Sport S model. Austen Kelly (the Fleet Manager) was the person who took care of us. Even though the dealership did not have the specific model we were looking for, he took the time to go through all the inventory for Sport S in BC. He answered all the questions we had on the car and helped us evaluate the trade-in values that were offered to us from other dealerships. Austen's professionalism and honesty was excellent, I was sad to leave the dealership without making a purchase.Eli KaanThey provide good service. I purchased my car from them had and had an issue of my rear view camera that was added upon my request. had an issue with it and the dealership took full responsibility and replaced a 3000$ item to get the camera working. I get regular calls to check if I'm happy with my car. When I drop the car for maintenance they drop me back and they come pick to pick me up whenever the car is ready.abdullah elawsiPlease see MARTY – He has a unique ability to listen, digest and assist you find your vehicle. What is impressive is his eagerness to keep the client accountable and focused and positive. He will not push you like most sales people do. I am very pleased to make a recommendation of Marty to any and all. He had assisted me for the two days I was seeking the right JEEP. He has a passion for delivering value to clients and with a positive attitude. This passion he has is almost unparalleled and I consider him an extremely valued SALES REP. MARTY brings to the table a very unique combination of thirst for knowledge plus a strong desire to help others in general. FIRST CLASS SERVICE…gera moraI assume most of the negative reviews are on their vehicle servicing section of their company because my experience of purchasing a car here was seamless. I purchased my car through Ryan and he made the process quick and easy. The whole process was very smooth. Sam, the insurance agent was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend this company if you are planning to buy a new or used car.Boaz ChanI dealt with Gina. She was always straight up with me and always responded to my questions. The transaction of the sale did take a little longer than I had wanted, but that was not the dealerships fault nor my sales lady. Offered a good price for my trade in and an even better price on the used car I bought. Out of all the sales people I have ever dealt with, Gina at Coquitlam Chrysler was by far the best, and easiest to deal with. Thanks Gina!Tyler SaundersWe bought a car a few months ago from Ed. We ran into some issues after the sale and contacted our salesman Ed. He was absolutely amazing... He was completely available and made sure our issues were sorted out in a timely fashion. He returned our call promptly and advocated on our behalf! Thanks Ed :) you are the BEST MichelleAye KayThey were very friendly. After making a big purchase I left there confident in my purchase and the price I paid. My salesman was very helpful explaining and showing me all my features in my new ride. It was a easy process and they didn’t try to push me on anything I didn’t want. I will be back for my next new vehicle.barrudieWe have had our 2 cars serviced by Melissa in the shop for almost 10 years now with outstanding service. We recently needed a mini-van and she pointed us in the direction of Tex. Don't let the nickname fool you, he was helpful, understanding and most importantly listened to our needs and price concerns. Before even showing us the vehicles we sat down and he went over what options were within our price range. From there he only showed us vehicles that we were interested in and he was not high pressure at any point during the sales process. During test drives and delivery he went through all the options and features of the vehicle and even then we weren't rushed. When it comes time to replace our other vehicle we will be returning to Coquitlam Chrysler and Tex.Michael BlaisJamie in service was very knowledgeable and efficient. She’s also reassuring. Puts me at ease! I have already recommended this dealership to friends who have jeeps!!Nelson SimoesHigh recommend Coquitlam chrysler to all! Service department is super friendly and helpful. I took my car to the dealership, which I’d never been to before, because I had a nail in my tire and Jamie in service was really helpful. I was told I needed an appointment but Jamie kindly explained that I could leave my car for the day and she would try to get it done, but couldn’t promise it. To my surprise, I got a phone call later that day and it was done! Very awesome first impression at this dealership.Justine ZornGreat service every time. Over last 7 years we bought 3 vehicles there, just because of their amazing service. We live in Langley and we wouldn't be dealing with any other Chrysler dealership. Highly recommended!!bojan marinkovicI took my car into the service dept. & was met by a very friendly young lady named Jamie. When I explained what was going on with my car,she was more then happy to take care of me! Even taking me to the area where they have coffee etc & making sure I was comfortable while I waited! Excellent customer service from Jamie! Thank you so much!A Google UserBought a new Ram 1500. Best deal of any dealer I spoke with. Service is very important and this dealer has many techs who have been there for years and know Chrysler products inside and out. Very important.Harvey ExnerI bought a 2008 Wrangler at this dealership a couple of weeks ago. Vehicle seemed in good shape and was inspected by Jeep/Chrysler. Sadly, the service department neglected to fill the tires properly; as soon as I left the lot the "check tire pressure" light came on in the dash. A quick stop at Kal-Tire solved that problem, but two tires were seriously under-inflated. Therefore, 1 * deduction. In sales, Nick was very helpful and accommodated my special requests. He also took the time to follow up with me, so I might give this dealership another chance and have some nicer seats installed soon.Manfred Bultmannmy car was towed and brought to Chrysler yard and was told will be fix in a couple of days but my car fixed sooner than I expected! ...reliable guys! Thank you so much!susan nacaytunaWe arrived and were quickly greeted by a smile. Marty showed us all of the appropriate minivans, and when the time came to sit down and negotiate price, he was respectful and determined to make a deal that worked for us as well as the dealership. We arrived thinking we were going to purchase elsewhere, but wanted to do our due diligence. However, within 4 hours we were driving off in our new minivan which we are very pleased with. We found Marty to not be the perceived 'typical' car salesperson, which was a factor in our decision to buy this van. There are lots of vehicles in the lower mainland, and to us a key factor is the integrity of the dealership representatives. Thanks Marty!WayneandRoberta *Bought a new Ram 1500. Best deal of any dealer I spoke with. Service is very important and this dealer has many techs who have been there for years and know Chrysler products inside and out. Very important.Harvey ExnerMy boyfriend was searching online and found some used cars he was very interested in seeing. Yesterday, we went to Coquitlam Chrysler and was greeted by Marty as we were getting out of our old 2003 Jeep we wanted to trade in. Told Marty what we were looking for and he pointed us in the right direction. From the start, Marty was informative and funny, allowing us to take our time to look at all the used cars. We found Marty to not be the sterotype "pushy" car salesperson, which we truly appreciated. Once we found the car, went on a test drive and fell in love with it. Upon the suggestion of Marty, we were offered the ability to take the car home over night. Which was great. In the end we were not able to make the numbers work. However, with the assistance of Gina and Kelly, we test drove another car with Marty today, one we were also looking at and closer to our price range, and went home with it! In summary, we had a good experience at Coquitlam Chrysler. And thanks to Marty, someone went home as a happy customer.Jeanette TsaiI had a great experience purchasing my pre-owned Jeep at Coquitlam Chrysler. Marty took care of me from the moment I pulled in and stepped out of my old beater, explaining to him I needed a new ride. He showed me a few different Jeeps and when I expressed interest in one in particular, he suggested I take it home for the night and let my wife check it out. Even now, months later he calls me to follow up and make sure I'm still happy. I don't do that for customers at my work but it makes me think I should because I feel very well looked-after. Marty made sure all the other employees at the dealership treated me well (which I'm sure they would have anyway). Al the finance guy was also great to deal with. He helped me understand all the finance options and warranty very well. All in all I would recommend Coquitlam Chrysler to anyone looking for a new or used vehicle.Peter de WittI found the service with both the sales person and dealing with the finical process and Elvis who was in charge of helping me with creative financing to be very helpful which made buying a vehicle from Coquitlam Chrysler more than a great experience. I would and will highly recommend anyone to this dealership. My sales person Raymond who I was dealing with went beyond and above any sales person I have met, he was very helpful and still available if I have any question about the vehicle and or policies. THANK YOU CHRYSLER.paul websterMy experience obtaining a vehicle from Coquitlam Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ltd was out of this world. Their staff really go above and beyond getting to know you and getting you the car you need with a wide selection of cars. Low and fair pricing that works for everyone At the end of the day it really comes down to your decision. A big thanks to my sales representative Mahyar for helping me get into the car I wanted. I am extremely satisfied with the services at Coquitlam Chrysler.Angel LopezFantastic! Service here was exceptional. All people involved were professional and pleasant to deal with. Kelly ( manager) Marty (salesman) Lynn ( financing) all awesome and helpful. Couldn't ask for anything more. All employees seem happy to be working here, Stefan and others we chatted with were friendly. Any issues I've had all I do is call Marty and he's trying to help. Totally appreciate the great service! Good job Coquitlum Chrysler! Totally recommend purchasing your vehicles here . Love love my new Dodge Charger! Thank you for the great service! SherrySherry TinsleyThe service rep Jamie was extremely helpful in getting the maintenance on our car taken care of. She worked with us to schedule a time that worked best for us - and gave us detailed info on how long it would take and how much it would cost. The service team gave us a bit of insight into things we may consider taking care of accompanied with the price range we could expect. They also stuck to the initial timeline and quote -- no surprises on our end, and no dealing with pushy sales people (as has been our experience at other service lots.) Overall the experience was very friendly, professional and and very informative. It was our first time there and we'll likely go back for future maintenance. The coffee in the lobby wasn't great, but at least there's a Tim Horton's nearby ;)Jonathan EdwardsWe dealt with Ali when purchasing our new truck. I have to say he was very good at his job. He was exceptional and very helpful, courteous and friendly. He went out of way to make sure we got what we needed and make it possible. I definitely recommend going to see Ali for your vehicle needs. The staff at Coquitlam Chrysler have made our dealing with them very pleasant. Thanks Ali and Coquitlam Chrysler. The Cullen FamilyDawn cullenOur experience with the sales rep Shawn and the finance person Al, was great. We received what we feel was an excellent deal on our 2017 Ram 3500 and they were conscientious about following up. We did have a couple minor issues along the way but the dealership management and staff were extremely receptive to the feedback and worked quickly to make sure that we felt heard and that we left satisfied. Overall a very positive experience and if we ever decide to upgrade our (very) old commuter car, Coquitlam Chrysler will be our first stop! :)Shannon CI purchased my 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT from Coquitlam Chrysler just over a week ago, I couldn't be happier with the service I received from the sales mangers Kelly/Stefan as well as the gentleman who took care of my financing (Zach) Coquitlam Chrysler gave me thousands more for my trade then Columbia Chrysler, discounted the sale price significantly AND got me one of the best interest rates. I would highly recommended this dealership.Jerod McLeanAfter our horrible customer service experience at Maple Ridge Dodge Chrysler, we were pretty convinced we would never go near another Dodge or Chrysler again. Thank God we did! We got an amazing deal on a fabulous vehicle. The customer service was fantastic. They picked me up at my house to get the vehicle, filled It up with gas, fixed a few imperfections we found with the interior, offered us all of the financing and warranty options and didn't make a big deal when we declined them. They didn't loose interest when we told them it was a cash sale. And before leaving the lot, the salesman, Wilson, paired my phone to the stereo in the car. And so much more. I can't recommend them enough to. They've got a huge selection of used inventory. Go check it out.Rose PedersenWe went in Sunday to buy a new Jeep because the old one had just had enough. We drove all the way from Abbotsford. My husband had to drag me in kicking and screaming because my experience with car dealerships has not been good to say the least. From the moment we walked in - we got the best service I've ever encountered (and I work in a client service industry). We were not pressured in any way. Our sales guy Terry was laid back, helpful and informative. When it came to financing, Mike was efficient, knowledgeable and friendly. I left with the SUV I wanted at a price lower than I anticipated, and an interest rate far better than I had budgeted for. The experience, from beginning to end, was actually an extremely pleasant one. I will go back to Coquitlam Dodge for every vehicle from now on and plan on bringing my kids in. My husband has bought 4 Dodge's in the last 6 years, and he will be going to Coquitlam from now on. We didn't have to hang around for hours, never had to go back, no calls, trying to encourage us to buy a more expensive vehicle... much unlike previous experiences. Already, I've received a call from Finance to verify I'm happy with what we did. 5 stars for sure. I'd give more if it that was an option.Leon & Dale-Lynn Desabrais The History of the Jeep Brand Posted On August 18, 2016 Jeep is a brand that really stands out – whether you’re driving the most recent addition to the lineup – the Renegade – or you’re taking to the trails with the always well-respected Wrangler – there’s nothing but praise for these highly-effective additions to the Jeep family. Jeep’s presence today isn’t a random occurrence or the product of design chances – there is a long history of excellence that draws on the climate of world politics, wars, and a need for a vehicle that could handle harsh conditions without giving up – at least that much hasn’t changed! Step back with us to a time over 70 years into the past – to the Second World War – innovation in those days were born from a necessity and manufacturing, pushed to the limits and it is here that we find the birthplace of the vehicle that would years into the future become the Jeep. Requested by the U.S. Army, there were two companies out of a staggering one-hundred and thirty-five contacted that accepted the task and went into the process of designing, development, and creation of the first proto-Jeeps. American Bantam Car Company and Willys-Overland tasked themselves with a deadline of just 49 days from concept to creation of a prototype. It was a tense period that saw American Bantam Car Company hire on Karl Probst, a freelance designer from Detroit, to work, without salary, from July 17th, 1940 and in just two days come up with a full plan for a Bantam prototype known as the Bantam Reconnaissance Car (BRC). The plans were submitted on July 22nd, 1940, with a development plan that took into account assembly from off-the-shelf automotive parts along with custom-built four-wheel drivetrain pieces. A hand-built prototype was constructed in Butler, Pennsylvania and had its inaugural drive to Camp Holabird in Maryland for military testing on September 21st, 1940. All criteria requested by the Army were met save for the engine torque output. Despite the accomplishment, the Army held onto reservations that the Bantam company was too small to handle the output they required and presented the designs to Willys-Overland and the Ford Company with approval to make their own modifications. Two new vehicles were born in this way – the Ford Pygmy and the Willys’ Quad. In short-order, fifteen hundred of each of the three models were created, tested, and further refined. Willys-Overland’s model would eventually come to be the base of the standard “Jeep” design shortly after. Where the name comes from is somewhat contested. There are certainly those who hold to the theory that because of the military designation, “GP” – for either Government Purposes or General Purposes – was eventually made into the colloquial “Jeep”. This would follow the way the word Humvee originated from the lengthy HMMWV (High-Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicle). Among those who believe this to be the case is Joe Frazer, the acting president of Willys-Overland from 1939 until 1944. This does however leave us with a bit of a problem, as the word “Jeep” was present in 1914 and used by the US Army mechanics who were tasked with testing new vehicles. The term, then, was more general and could be applied as widely as to encompass tractors, gadgets, and even aircraft. Many other theories exist on where, precisely, the name originated. All the same, early representatives of the Jeep brand entered the scene and continued to be produced throughout the end of the Second World War and were used by ever service in the US Military. After the war, numerous imitator manufacturers took on the idea of creating civilian-versions of the hardened vehicle design. From France to Japan, automakers saw the merit and the potential of these revolutionary vehicles. All the same, the official Jeep name is one that has been owned and appropriated by a number of companies over the years. We can trace back the first owners to Willys-Overland, who produced the first civilian Jeep as early as 1945, and would be the only official company to continue production of the vehicle line. July 1950 was a special time for the company when, after years of debate, they were granted the official ownership of the Jeep registered trademark. Three years later, in 1953, Willys-Overland sold the brand to Kaiser Motors, leading to the eventual naming convention and subsequent Kaiser-Jeep brand in 1963. American Motors Corporation (AMC) purchased the company in 1970, and for almost two decades. In a buy-out move, Chrysler took over the operations started by AMC in 1987, replacing a number of designs and through a number of shuffles has continued to operate the Jeep brand in one form or another since that period.
