2019 Ram 1500 – The Perfect Truck? Quite Possibly!

There are tons of options in the market if you’re looking for a new full-size truck in Albuquerque. Some of the bestselling vehicles in America are pickup trucks and companies are consistently offering bigger and better trucks with new innovations, packages, options, and features. But if you take all those offers and consistent improvements, year after year, one truck still leads the pack. It’s Motor Trend’s 2019 Truck of the Year - the Ram 1500. In fact, it might even be the perfect truck! Ram took the unique features that made the truck great in previous years and improved upon them.
The biggest innovator in the Ram 1500’s design is the new eTorque system. The eTorque system is a light hybrid and it replaces a traditional alternator with a small electric motor. We know a smaller motor doesn’t sound like it would improve upon an imposing truck like the Ram 1500, but this smaller motor doesn’t change the Ram 1500’s top speed or horsepower. The eTorque system will make the truck accelerate faster by using the instant torque electric motor.
The 2019 Ram 1500 is also the only light-duty pickup truck to offer an air-suspension system! Air suspension systems use compressed air as springs to keep the road from rattling the frame. With an air-suspension system, you can even adjust your ride height meaning that you can load your Ram 1500 to capacity and then adjust it to keep the bed level! This is one feature you’ll have to come down to Melloy Dodge to check it out for yourself!
One of the older features from previous Ram 1500 models are the RamBoxes! The 2019 Ram 1500 is the only pickup truck to offer these lockable boxes that are built into the long sides of the truck bed. You can fit anything from large items like shovels and rakes to smaller items like your work gloves and tools. They’re useful for anything that you may not want to keep in an open bed. But what is the best use for the RamBoxes? They’re waterproof and drainable, so you can fill them with ice and use them to store drinks!
Upgrades for the interior of the 2019 Ram 1500 were implemented as well. The Ram 1500 now boasts a 12-inch touchscreen Uconnect®. This customizable touchscreen in the center console features pinch-and-zoom and a split-screen mode to see the trucks interior controls. Full navigation, voice control and a media center with Sirius XM® are just some of the additional features.
Ready to jump in and experience the 2019 Ram 1500 for yourself? Visit Melloy Dodge, New Mexico’s #1 selling dodge and Ram Dealer, at www.melloydodge.com. Schedule a time for your test drive today! We’re open Monday-Saturday 8 am to 8 pm in the Spring and Summer and Saturday from 11 am to 5 pm. Or visit us online at Melloydodge.com to schedule an appointment!

The 2019 Ram ProMaster is an investment for your business, and you want to keep that investment safe.

Springtime Auto Maintenance in New Mexico


The weather in Albuquerque and the rest of the Southwest takes a toll on cars and trucks. Hot sun, cold nights and lots of dust can cause damage. Tires, brakes, filters, and more can all be affected by New Mexico’s weather conditions.
At Melloy Dodge, New Mexico’s best source for Dodge cars and Ram trucks, we want your vehicles to run as smoothly as possible. Spring is the perfect time to help your car recover from winter and prepare for the heat of summer.

Five Things to Check During Springtime Vehicle Maintenance
1. Motor Oil. This vehicle maintenance step will help prolong the life of your engine. After a winter of cold morning starts, your motor oil may begin to wear. Replace your oil according to the manufacturer’s schedule or when the oil looks thick or dirty.

2. Battery. A long, cold winter can shorten battery life. Before summer arrives, ensure your battery is in good shape by servicing your vehicle at the Melloy Dodge Express Lane.

3. Tires. Rough terrain can cause irregular tire wear. Rotating your tires this spring will help keep wear evenly. Remember to always make sure tires are properly inflated to the manufacturer recommended pressure.

4. Coolant. Summer heat can have a harsh effect on your engine. Avoid overheating by visiting our Express Lane service and ensure the vehicle has the right coolant strength.

5. Filters. Thanks to the desert terrain and dry air, filters can get clogged with dust and particles. Make sure to check the intake filter and cabin filter and replace them if needed.

Taking a little time for vehicle maintenance can keep your car or truck in good condition.

Come visit Melloy Dodge in Albuquerque and see our selection of Dodge cars and Ram trucks. Whether you’re looking for a rugged workhorse or a stylish, comfortable ride, we’ll help you find what you need.
Melloy Dodge is located at 9621 Coors Blvd NW, just north of Paseo Del Norte. Visit our no-appointment needed Express Lane, open Monday-Friday, 7:15 am to 6 pm and Saturday from 8 am to 5 pm.

What You Need to Know if Your Vehicle is Recalled



What you should do if your vehicle is recalled. 
The most important part of any recall is ensuring the safety of the occupants of the vehicle. Vehicle manufacturers want to make sure that when you drive off the lot in your new or used vehicle that you and your loved ones are safe. If a new or potential issue arises, manufacturers are required to send out a notice informing you about that issue. Often, that notice is sent before parts are even available to resolve the issue. You’ll be given information on the specific defect of your vehicle along with instructions on where to bring it in for repair, which is usually the dealership. Once parts are available, the dealership will address any issues with the recall and replace any parts that may cause future problems.

Potential Issues. 
Only defects that could be a safety threat will result in a recall. Routine maintenance is the owner’s responsibility and separate from recalls. Some examples of recalls might include windshield wiper arms, transmission, steering, fuel systems, airbags, and seat belts can all be included in a recall. If you’ve never had a recall before, don’t worry about a costly repair, these issues will be repaired at no cost to you. 

What to do? 
For obvious reasons, don’t take a recall lightly. To see if your vehicle has outstanding recalls, visit the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) website or here. Drivers can enter their vehicle identification number (VIN) to determine whether their vehicles have been affected.
Melloy Dodge is here to answer all the questions and concerns about recent recalls. Some parts may not be available upon receipt of the recall postcard. We specialize in Dodge and Ram vehicles and we’re located at 9621 Coors Blvd NW, just north of Paseo Del Norte. If you live in the Albuquerque area, please feel free to make an appointment with our service department. You can also submit an inquiry online at Melloydodge.com.

4 Main Reasons Why Your Check Engine Light Could Be On

Your vehicle is smarter than you might think. If you see your check engine light on, it’s important to pay attention to it. Otherwise, you run the risk of damaging your engine. At Melloy Dodge, we’re here to help. There are a few reasons why the light may pop on:

Catalytic converter is damaged: The catalytic converter is responsible for removing the exhaust gas away from the engine. If the converter becomes damaged, dirty air is being cycled back into the engine.
Oxygen sensor is damaged: Your engine functions because of a specific ratio of oxygen and gas. If the sensor is damaged, your engine may be getting too much or not enough oxygen.
G
as cap is off: If the gas cap is off (or damaged), you're not getting the vacuum seal that is necessary for the fuel pump to get enough fuel to the engine for internal combustion.
Spark plugs are faulty: Spark plugs help to power everything to the engine. If a plug goes bad, various systems may stop functioning.
Oil filter needs to be replaced: Your oil filter cleans the oil that goes into the engine to keep everything lubricated. If the filter is too dirty, the oil stops entering the engine.


All sorts of things can happen under the hood of your vehicle. Luckily, the check engine light will tell you that there is a problem. It's your chance to act quickly to get the problem taken care of to avoid even bigger problems, like getting stuck on the side of the road. You won't know what the problem is until you bring it into the service center. A technician will be able to run diagnostics and identify the problem.

When your check engine light comes on, the best thing that you can do is make an appointment with the service center at Melloy Dodge. One of our service technicians will explore why the check engine light is on. Then, we can make the necessary repair or reset the sensor so that you don’t have to worry.

Melloy Dodge is located at 9621 Coors Blvd NW, just north of Paseo Del Norte. Visit our no-appointment needed Express Lane, open Monday-Friday, 8 am to 7 pm and Saturday from 11 am to 5 pm.
