4 Easy Steps to Buying a Car

Are you in the market for a new or new-to-you vehicle? Here are four tips to help you make the best decision.

Research
Before you start shopping, decide what you need in a vehicle. How many people does your car need to hold? Do you typically carry any cargo? Once you know what you need, an online search can reveal what cars are the best match. Melloy Dodge offers a wide selection of sedans, sports cars, SUVs and trucks. Our online tools let you browse our lot and compare new cars without leaving your house.

Choose the right dealership
Visiting a trusted dealership makes for a more pleasant buying experience, and a family-owned dealership gives you a name you can count on. The Melloy family has been in the auto business in New Mexico since 1955. A family-owned dealership with ties to the community relies on repeat customers, so they'll be motivated to treat you right.

Test drive
Once you've decided on your ideal vehicle, head to Melloy Dodge and give it a test drive. Try to drive in conditions similar to those you will be driving in every day so you have the perfect car to fit your driving needs.

Payment plans and financing options

Financing is an important part of most new car purchase. Melloy Dodge offers many different payment plans. In fact, you can get pre-approved for financing in seconds, before even setting foot in the dealership! If money is tight, a pre-approval can give you the confidence to know how much car you can fit into your budget.
