Tax time is the best time to buy a new car at Melloy Dodge. Using your refund to purchase your new car is a smart move because it can save you money, improve your cash flow, or help you qualify for a loan.
Buying your new car with your tax refund is budget-friendly. Since an average tax refund is nearly $3,000 according to IRS statistics, your refund allows you to make a larger down payment than you otherwise might. Buyers who can combine their refund with a trade-in can further increase their down payment. A sizeable down payment saves money because it reduces the amount you need to borrow, which lowers both your monthly payment and the amount of interest you pay.
An alternative is to use your refund to improve your monthly cash flow. Making your monthly car payments with your refund frees up cash each month for other expenses. An average refund should cover your car loan for several months.
If your credit is less than stellar, tax time is the best time of the year for a new vehicle. Your tax refund can help you qualify for an auto loan. The large down payment from your refund shows the lender that you're serious about paying for a vehicle. The lender considers that you would have a lot to lose if you were to default on the loan.
When you're ready to purchase your new vehicle, contact Melloy Dodge so we can help you find the car that's best for you. You can visit Melloydodge.com for more information on how to get pre-approved instantly!

If you’re uncertain about purchasing a new truck, you may want to consider all the benefits of making your next vehicle the 2019 Ram 1500. If you are not loyal to any brand of truck, then shopping for a new truck can be a real headache. The two big front runners for 2019 Trucks are the Ford® F150 and Ram® 1500.
The Ram truck has earned the MotorTrend Truck of the Year award, one of the most prestigious honors bestowed in the auto industry. In year’s past, the Ram 1500 has won this notable award in 2013 and 2014. This year, the Ram 1500 beat out the competition and was voted 2019 MotorTrend Truck of The Year. A quick comparison of the features that Ram has brought (compared to Ford) this year makes it clear to see why they are winning awards and dominating the market.
For the sake of comparison, if you look at the base models of each vehicle with the standard features equipped, the base engine offered on the 1500 series of Ram is a 3.6L V-6 compared to Ford's base of a 3.3L V6. The Ram has 305 Horsepower and brings 269lb⋅ft of torque, but the Ford only has 290 Horsepower and 265lb⋅ft of torque. The Ram 1500’s transmission is an 8-Speed compared to Ford's 6-Speed. Also, Ram gives consumers the added comfort of the air ride suspension while Ford does not have this feature.
