5 car shopping tips for tax season success

If you’ve decided to put your tax refund toward a new ride, you may now be ready for the fun part – car shopping.*

Here are a few tips to help you get the right vehicle with the best deal.

1. Research online

Begin by looking at what vehicle or vehicles will meet your needs as well as work with your budget. While shopping for a car in the current market is more competitive than usual, there are incredible vehicles available. Locate nearby FCA US dealerships to view inventory to help with your decisions.

2. Be flexible

Have an open mind on vehicle selection to give yourself added options. Browse the Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, FIAT®, Jeep®, Ram and Wagoneer lineups to explore different models, vehicle types and colors as you draw up your short list.

3. Consider new and preowned

In the same vein, think about both new and preowned vehicles. This is a good idea at any time and gives you the greatest choice of vehicles and price points when making a purchase.

4. Consider leasing

Leasing may be your preferred option if you wish to drive the very latest model and change vehicles again in a few years’ time. Lease payments are typically lower than when purchasing the same or a similarly equipped vehicle, too.

5. View our offers

Don’t miss out on the latest deals. Chrysler Capital brings eligible buyers and lessees money-saving incentives during tax season and throughout the year, so check out our current offers on new FCA US models.
