The Advantages to Buying a Used Car

At Melloy Dodge we’re here to get you into your new car or truck. But, must that car or truck be brand new? Of course not! Melloy Dodge in Albuquerque has a fantastic selection of used vehicles as well. Sometimes, buying a used car has its advantages!
Lower price tags
The biggest advantage is obvious – a used car will cost less. Let’s say the average cost of a new car from eight years ago was $25,000 before taxes and fees. That car could now be worth around $15,000. Would you rather be the original owner who spent the extra money for a new car’s bells and whistles, or the second buyer who saved that $10,000? On average used cars are almost 50% less than new cars. You’ll be able to pay that off much faster as well!

Certified and Thoroughly Inspected
Certified Pre-Owned vehicles, such as those at Melloy Dodge Used Cars, are inspected meticulously by our service department. We want to make sure you’ve found something that fits yours and your family’s transportation needs at an affordable price while also making sure that you’re getting a quality, certified pre-owned vehicle. Certified pre-owned vehicles may even have extended warranties, special financing, and other benefits.

Condition
Vehicles today are built to last for 100,000 miles or more. When buying a used car, don’t feel like you’re sacrificing reliability over condition just to get a good deal. Our pre-owned inventory here at Melloy Dodge in Albuquerque have been designed and manufactured by the most successful vehicle manufacturers in the world. There are just as many things to write home about in a used car as there is in a new one!

So, if you’re in the market for a certified preowned vehicle, visit us today! Our Dodge, Ram and Fiat Dealership is located on the Westside of Albuquerque at 9621 Coors Blvd NW, just south of the Cottonwood Mall. We don’t only carry quality pre-owned cars and trucks from Dodge, Ram, and Fiat, we carry brands such as Ford, Chevy, Toyota, Nissan and many others! We’re also open Monday-Saturday 8 am to 8 pm in the Summer and Saturday from 11 am to 5 pm. Or visit us online at Melloydodge.com to schedule an appointment!

Melloy Dodge at 2019 New Mexico State Fair

As Labor Day wraps up and September begins, we move on to the next big event in Albuquerque and in the state of New Mexico – The New Mexico State Fair! Held at Expo New Mexico, the fair will run September 5th through 15th.  “Love is in the Fair” this year, and Melloy Dodge staff will be on hand at the Ram Trucks display as they sponsor the PRCA Rodeo.
Ram has been a longtime supporter of rodeos and of farmers. Many Ram Truck owners are farmers and ranchers whose Ram truck isn’t just their primary mode of transportation, it’s an integral part of their livelihood as well. Farmers across the state of New Mexico are hard workers, just like their Ram Trucks. Plus, Ram offers the highest towing capacity, up to 35,100 lbs., which is perfect for an RV or your horse trailer. Ram also sets the benchmark for heaviest payload with 7,680 lbs. in our Ram 3500.
You can find Ram Trucks at the main entrance near Tingley Coliseum. You can get a look firsthand at the 2019 Motor Trend Truck of the Year, the Ram 1500.
The New Mexico State Fair is one of the top 10 state fairs in the nation according to SmartAsset.com. It will feature live music entertainment, art, agriculture, carnival rides, games, food and shopping.
The New Mexico State Fair will be held at Expo New Mexico September 5th through 15th. The fair’s hours will be 10 am to 9 pm Sunday thru Thursday and 10 am to 10 pm Friday and Saturday. To get tickets and get additional information, visit the fair online at https://statefair.exponm.com/ If you miss the Ram trucks at the New Mexico State Fair, you can visit Melloy Dodge at 9620 Coors Blvd NE, just South of the Cottonwood mall!

Are Muscle Cars Back?

An engine roaring fight for sportscar dominance has been revving louder and louder in the category of “number 2 sports car” behind the Ford® Mustang. The Dodge Challenger has surpassed the legendary Chevrolet® Camaro over the last year. Perhaps, it’s due to the much scarier and more intimidating sounding model names like “Demon” and “Hellcat”, which have gained the Challenger more than 5.2 million followers on Facebook. But more than likely, it’s due to speed and muscle.
We’re currently seeing a renaissance of the “American Muscle Car”, a term which fizzled out in the mid-70s. Now, as we rapidly approach the 2020’s, a golden age in terms of horsepower and performance is rearing its head.
However, Chevy and Ford aren’t surrendering anytime soon. Over the last ten years, Ford Mustang sales have remained mostly flat while the sales of the Chevy Camaro have seen a decline. The Dodge Challenger has seen growth over the first quarter of 2019, according to Kelley Blue Book data:
In 2017, Mustang sold 81,866 for 26% market share; Camaro sold 67,940 for 22%; Challenger sold 64,537 for 21%.
In 2018, Mustang sold 75,842 for 28% of market share; Challenger sold 66,716 for 24%; Camaro sold 50,963 for 19%.
In first quarter 2019, Mustang sold 16,917 for 29% of market; Challenger sold 13,431 for 23%; Camaro sold 12,083 for 21%.
The difference between basic models and fancy “trim packages” these days has also become a significant purchasing factor for consumers. It’s like comparing a ride-share service to a limousine. Dodge has introduced "buzz models," which offer new twists on the current models with fancier trim packages and different engine types. Those who have made Challenger purchases, who had also been eyeing Mustang or Camaro, say a larger interior and all-wheel drive were a couple of the main selling points for them.
Are you ready to possess the Dodge Challenger De
mon or tame the Hellcat? You can test drive either and see for yourself at Melloy Dodge on 9621 Coors Blvd NW, just South of the Cottonwood Mall. Or visit us online at Melloydodge.com to schedule an appointment! You can call us at 505-312-9723.

Your Check Engine Light Is On. What does that Mean?!

If you’re like many people in this country who don’t know much about cars, a check engine light is one of the most terrifying things that can suddenly illuminate in your vehicle. What does it mean? And why isn’t it more specific? There are lots of parts to an engine, it could be anything! Well, fear not, because Melloy Dodge and their Service Department are going to help you get that light turned off and get you back on the road where you should be!
First off, is the light flashing? Or is it just on? Your owner’s manual will specify the difference between the two for you.  This light could mean something small, such as an air filter or an oil change. A big one that is relatively easy and common, is the gas cap. If it’s loose after a driver fills up his vehicle, it could just need to be tightened. Or if it’s got cracks in it, you may need a new gas cap altogether.
Now alternatively, a major part may need to be replaced. A faulty oxygen sensor could be the reason because when a sensor goes bad, it can’t read the oxygen exhaust to inject the right amount of fuel to your engine. Another possible suspect is your catalytic converter. Your catalytic converter is responsible for converting carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide. If your catalytic converter isn’t working, your exhaust could be filled with gas or oil.
One more potential issue for a check engine light could be your ignition coil. This means there is not enough spark for the engine to turn on. This could be a case of bad spark plugs, but it’s best to make an appointment with our service department to be safe.
If all else fails, you can always take advantage of the inventory of new and used cars at Melloy Dodge on Coors! We can get you set up in a 2019 Dodge Journey, the 2019 Dodge Challenger or the Motor Trend Truck of the Year - the 2019 Ram 1500! Visit us today at 9621 Coors Blvd NW or you can make an appointment with our service center to get that check engine light checked out! Our no-appointment Express Lane is open Monday through Friday 7am-6pm and Saturdays 8am-5pm. You can visit us online for more information at Melloydodge.com.
