If you’re getting a tax refund from Uncle Sam this year, congratulations! Whether it’s a few hundred dollars or perhaps even a few thousand, you may be wondering what you should do with the refund check when you get it. The answer is simple: Lease or finance a vehicle. That’s why we here at Jim Burke Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, your preferred auto dealership in Birmingham, have put together six ways you can maximize the impact of your tax return when visiting our car lot near Hoover: 

1) Make a Large Down Payment on a New Car 

By increasing the amount you put down on a new vehicle, whether it’s a purchase or a lease, you’ll reduce the amount owed and therefore decrease your monthly payments and perhaps even the length of your new car loan.

Use our online payment estimator to figure out a ballpark budget based on your down payment.

2) Pay Off or Refinance an Existing Auto Loan 

If you already have a car and are making monthly payments, your refund check may be enough to pay it off. Or you may be able to take advantage of better interest rates by using your tax refund to refinance your vehicle and make lower payments. The experts at our Auto Finance Department would be more than happy to assist you if you’re considering refinancing a car loan in Birmingham.

3) Take Advantage of Special Financing & Lease Offers 

That extra cash can be multiplied when you combine it with various manufacturer incentives, dealer discounts, and special offers, each of which will stretch your dollars further. To see what special car deals we have available on Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram models, all it takes is a click, tap or phone call.

4) Buy a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle 

Certified pre-owned vehicles like the ones we sell here at Jim Burke CDJR go through a rigorous reconditioning process. That means you can get a near-new car for thousands less. Add your tax refund check to the equation, and you’ll drive away in a real bargain.

5) Give Your Car the VIP Treatment 

If you’ve overlooked how your car looks, use part of your tax refund to get it professionally detailed inside and out, including the engine compartment. You’ll not only have your vehicle looking like new, you’ll also help protect it from the elements. You might also consider getting your windows tinted to both cool and protect interior leather seats and dashboard surfaces. 

Your car is a valuable investment. Consider using your tax refund to keep it running in top condition as well as looking fine as heck. So, if you’ve been putting off that new set of tires or brake job, now is a great time to advantage of the many service coupons we have available at our Birmingham auto service center

6) Add Some Bling 

Give your car a fresh, updated appearance with a new set of wheels. Or enhance your car’s technology with an upgraded audio or navigation system. You can also invest in a variety of genuine vehicle accessories through our Parts Department, including new floor mats, locking wheel nuts, chrome-tipped exhausts, rear spoiler, splash guards, sport pedals, custom sun shields, and more. We carry and can order genuine auto parts and accessories for just about any make of vehicle, including Chryslers, Dodges, Jeeps and Ram trucks.
