owner, seem to be, they become traveling sales
man for Dodge cars.
Dodge reputation made by the 140000 users
sells more cars than all their salesmen. Talk to a
Dodge owner and he will bring out several reasons
for his satisfaction with his car. Here are some
of those I have heard.
First Extreme economy on gas, many re
ports of from 20 to 27 miles to the gallon, also on
tires, rarely less than 6000 and up to 13000 miles
on the original tires.
Secondly Power when needed to go any
where any car ever went, and some places other
cars cannot go with full passenger loads.
Third Many references aro made to the
beauty and lasting qualities of the body finish on
the car, alkali-proof.
Fourth An almost absolute freedom from
broken gears, axles and bearings and wonderful .
Fifth Repair part service at home, where
they buy their car.
Sixth Many have called it the easiest riding
small car they have sat in.
Ask your neighbor or the next Dodge owner
you sec and get his reasons first band.
The .result of making cars BETTER showjn.,
sales and owners satisfaction. Is that the sort of--car
you want to order now for early spring delivery?
