Best Car Dealer – Orange County Register

1. Fletcher Jones Motorcars

Location: 3300 Jamboree Road, Newport Beach; 949-397-2112; fjmercedes.com

Fletcher Jones Motorcars has set the standard in Newport Beach as one of the county’s premier luxury dealers for decades. With humble beginnings dating back to 1946, this family business was started by Fletcher Jones in Los Angeles. After years of hard work and investment, Fletcher Jones was able to hand over his business to his son, Fletcher “Ted” Jones Jr., who built a legacy around buying and selling Mazda vehicles in the town of Whitter.

In 1991, Ted bought a bankruptcy dealership in the city of Newport Beach and transformed the property into one of the best Mercedes-Benz dealerships in the country. Today, the company maintains its prestigious reputation by providing the residents of Orange County with the largest selection of luxury cars.

When customers buy or lease from Fletcher Jones Motorcars, they qualify for “exclusive amenities,” such as a free car wash or a free shuttle to John Wayne Airport. Customers can also pre-pay for scheduled maintenance, which can save 30% on maintenance costs, according to the dealer.

In addition to demonstrating the highest form of class and quality to its customers, Fletcher Jones Motorcars has received the Best of the Best Dealer Recognition Award from Mercedes-Benz and the Magna Society Award from Audi in 2021.
