With the largest used car inventory at one location in the State of Maryland, Jones Used Cars takes pride in being able to meet every customer's used car needs. With over 1,000 vehicles in stock, Jones Used Cars is proud to offer its customers over 200 makes and models of cars, trucks, vans and SUVs.
 
Our inventory is primarily compromised of locally owned vehicles which were serviced in the area. Each one of these vehicles is hand-picked by our ownership and management team who assemble every morning to evaluate the previous day's trades. Part of this evaluation is a thorough review of the vehicle's Carfax report, which reveals the service records of the vehicle as well as any accidents the vehicle has experienced. If there are ANY concerns about the vehicle, the vehicle is rejected immediately and sent to auction.
 
After the evaluation process, the vehicles are sent to our state of the art service departments where a team of factory trained and certified technicians perform a 155 point inspection. This inspection includes a review of everything from the tires and breaks to the engine and transmission. After all of the vehicle's recalls are completed, our vehicles are then road tested to ensure quality drivability. Next, our vehicles are sent for an interior and exterior detail process where the emphasis is on the details. We make our vehicles shine like new after this detail process.
 
Once the vehicle is ready for sale, the vehicle enters our state of the art photo booth where our photo technicians take a variety of interior and exterior photos so that our customers can view our inventory online at jonesusedcars.com.
 
Additionally, all of our used vehicles are eligible for our industry leading Jones for a Lifetime program. As part of this program, you will enjoy free oil changes, free carwashes, and engine guarantee. All of these benefits are available to our customers for the lifetime of their vehicle.
 

Here at Jones Used Cars we do all this to ensure that any vehicle you buy from us is of the highest quality and can be counted on for years of worry free ownership.
