Used SUV For Sale – Costa Mesa, CA

Although brand-new cars get a lot of attention, used SUVs can be the perfect option for a lot of people.

Exclusive CPO SUVs for Sale

One of the biggest concerns a lot of people have when looking at a used SUV for sale is the uncertainty of not knowing what it has been through. There is no way to know with 100% accuracy everything a vehicle did and had happen to it while owned by a previous driver. That being said, you can greatly reduce some of this uncertainty and get far greater peace of mind by choosing a CPO vehicle, such as the ones we offer here at Orange Coast CJDRF.

A CPO Chrysler is as close as you can get to a brand-new model while still enjoying the discounted price of a used SUV. In order for an SUV to qualify as a CPO model from Chrysler (including Jeep, Dodge, and Ram models), it must have fewer than 75,000 miles on it, cannot be more than five model years old, and needs to have a clean title. It then must pass a 125-point inspection to ensure it is of the highest quality possible and in great shape with no frame damage and fully functioning mechanical and electrical systems.

When you choose a CPO SUV, you also get incredible peace of mind thanks to Chrysler’s 7-year or 100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty and 3-month or 3,000-mile maximum care warranty. These are provided by the manufacturer at no cost to you; and if you want even more protection, there are a number of CPO upgrade warranty plans available. Please keep in mind that our CPO SUVs for sale are in limited supply with high demand, so check with us often to see what we have in stock, and if you see something you like, then do not hesitate to buy your next vehicle.

Mopar Service and Parts Department

Although there are many good reasons to pick a reputable dealership over a private seller when looking for a used SUV for sale, one of the main ones to us is the level of service and support you get from a dealer long-term. With a private seller, there is no guarantee that they are selling you a vehicle in good shape––whereas all of our used models are thoroughly inspected and offered in the best condition possible. And if something should come up with your vehicle after a sale, you can bet the private seller you bought from will be nowhere to be found.

At Orange Coast CJDRF, however, you will always know where to turn whenever you need any service or repairs. Our Mopar service center can handle anything you need, from routine maintenance to more serious work after a collision or other event. And with our parts department, we have a large inventory of parts we need on-hand to get your work done as quickly as possible; plus, we can order anything we might need that we do not have. That is just one more way we make sure that all of your needs are taken care of.

Our Favorite Used SUVs

#10 - 2018 Chevrolet Equinox

Kicking off our top 10 list of the best used SUVs that money can buy is the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox. The first reason this model made the list is that it is a newer pre-owned model. This means that you can find a well-equipped one for an affordable price. Available in four trims with both gasoline- and diesel-powered engine options, this family-friendly compact crossover is quite a catch. This 2018 model was the success of a redesign and comes with advanced features that previous models did not have. You can easily find one with luxury features such as perforated leather seats, a hands-free liftgate, a wireless charging pad, and remote start technology. You can get almost anything you would wish to find on a newer model, all in the lower price of a used SUV.

#9 - 2018 Toyota RAV4

Another top compact crossover that you can find pre-owned is the 2018 Toyota RAV4. This five-seater is practical, reliable, and great for adventurous folks. It is based more on utility than comfort, so people who enjoy heading off the beaten path may like it a bit more than the Chevy Equinox. It is available in six trims, and one of those is the Adventure model. This particle version comes with fender flares for a sportier look and a raised suspension that gives you 6.5-inches of ground clearance. Safety systems and convenience features are also very generous. You can easily find a RAV4 that comes with heated seats, navigation, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and a 360° camera system for parking. This used SUV truly provides some luxury.

#8 - 2016 Hyundai Tucson

If you are searching for a more affordable compact crossover, you can opt for the 2016 Hyundai Tucson. It is right at that age when it is not new, but it also is not too old. It is just right. You can find these vehicles with advanced technology such as Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, which is ideal for people who need to stay in touch with their family, friends, or co-workers while on the road. What is unique about this particular model is that Hyundai engineers used a design language called Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 to create this beauty. Its sleek lines and curves make it look like so much more than an SUV. It is also 3-inches longer and 1-inch wider than previous models, giving you a bit more space for luggage, groceries, or sports gear.

#7 - 2014 Ford Edge

For folks looking to save even more money without giving up that Bluetooth connectivity, the 2014 Ford Edge might be the best bet for you. Available in four trims, this five-seater is well equipped even on the base model. If you are a millennial, then you will definitely appreciate the CD player, USB port, and auxiliary jack that come with it. Sometimes breaking out the old CD collection for a long road trip is preferred over music streaming. These models were often fitted with add-ons and packages that included safety features like blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, so finding one with some pretty great features is not challenging.

#6 - 2017 Kia Sportage

Are you looking for a compact crossover with a little more flair? The 2017 Kia Sportage is a good pick. With seating for five people and a cargo area measured at 30.7 cu.ft., it is almost a mid-size model. Folding down the back row of seating, will expand the area to a maximum of 60.1 cu.ft., which is ample for small families. Another reason the 2017 model made our list is because the vehicle underwent a complete redesign for this production year. That means that you get some worthwhile features without breaking your bank account. Also, if you happen to come across an EX and SX Turbo trim, then you will be pleasantly surprised by the Uvo telematics suite. It adds roadside assistance, speed tracking, geo-fencing, and stolen vehicle tracking.

#5 - 2017 Ford Escape

Sticking with the compact crossover class of used SUVs for sale, the 2017 Ford Escape is a popular option. Offered in three trims, the standard equipment for this model includes a CD player, a USB port, Bluetooth connectivity, and the famous Sync infotainment interface with smartphone integration via AppLink. Cruise control and a rearview camera are also included. This vehicle was produced with three different powertrains, and all of them are fuel-efficient. Some models may even have leather upholstery and safety features such as lane-departure warning, lane-departure intervention, and an automated parallel/perpendicular parking system.

#4 - 2018 Jeep Compass

Our final compact SUV on the list is one of our personal favorites. In fact, if this were a list for only compact models, it would be #1. The 2018 Jeep Compass is the ideal used SUV, and you will be hard-pressed to find something you do not love about it. Available in four trims, you can find a Compass that is best suited to all of your driving needs. If you enjoy off-roading, we recommend the Trailhawk trim. This version gets skid plates, tow hooks, off-loading tires, and a raised suspension that allows you to crawl over rough terrain with no problem.

#3 - 2014 Mazda CX-9

Moving on to our favorite mid-size SUVs, the 2014 Mazda CX-9 is a solid choice. With three rows of seating and a V6 engine rumbling under the hood, this is a great family vehicle. It is affordable, and it is offered in three trims. Higher trims get rear cross-traffic alert, a rear-seat entertainment system for the kids, and navigation to help you find the quickest route. If you are looking for comfort, convenience, and practicality, this may just be the right SUV for you.

#2 - 2017 Toyota Highlander

Another great mid-size crossover option is the quiet 2017 Toyota Highlander. With seating for up to eight people, it is just the right size for families. Available in six trims, you can choose between a fuel-efficient 4-cylinder engine or a more powerful V6 motor. With four USB ports installed throughout the cabin, you will not have to worry about your kids’ phones dying. Standard on all 2017 Highlanders is the Toyota Safety Sense package. This comes with the Toyota Safety Sense bundle, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, lane departure intervention, forward collision mitigation, emergency braking, and a rearview camera.

#1 - 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Sitting at the #1 spot on our best used SUV list is the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee. This mid-size model is the perfect fusion of luxury and technology with a sporty flair. Available in seven trims, you can find one that is exactly right for your driving needs. There are V6 and V8 engine options as well as a diesel motor, and the standard features include rear parking sensors, satellite radio, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, and compatibility with Apple CaPlay and Android Auto. The Trailhawk is available as an affordable off-roading model, and the Trackhawk takes things to the next level. As the ultimate off-roading trim equipped with Quadra-Trac II and Quadra-Drive II, there is not a better mid-size SUV out there that can do what this beast can do. Plus, it is so customizable that finding one to suit your needs is an almost guarantee.
