REASONS TO BUY YOUR NEXT NEW OR USED VEHICLE FROM A FRANCHISED AUTOMOBILE DEALER

FULLY LICENSED

Franchised dealers are registered and licensed by the provincial government under the Motor Dealer Act. The government cannot offer the same protection to people who choose not to buy from a licensed motor dealer.

RELIABLE

Franchised dealers stand behind the vehicles sold or leased by them and guarantee these vehicles are free of liens.

FINANCING

Franchised dealers have a range of financing available to assist customers with the purchase or lease of their vehicles.

WARRANTIES

Franchised dealers provide full manufacturer warranties on new vehicles and offer a range of warranties on most used vehicles.

SERVICE

Franchised dealers have comprehensive service operations with trained personnel to service and maintain your vehicle.

6 7 8 9 10

DISCLOSURE

Franchised dealers are required to disclose if a vehicle has been registered out of province, used as a lease or rental vehicle, or as a taxi, police or emergency vehicle or has been damaged over certain limits.

LEASING

Franchised dealers must comply with strict leasing standards when leasing a vehicle.

PROTECTION

Franchised dealers are backed by a government regulation fund in the event of a catastrophe occurring to the dealer. There is no similar protection if you buy from someone who is not a licensed motor dealer.

SOLUTIONS

Franchised dealers back up their sales by providing customers with access to the Canadian Motor Vehicle Arbitration Plan to resolve any problems with vehicle manufacturers.

SOLID INVESTMENT

Franchised dealers have a large investment in their personnel, plant, operations, reputation and in their communities. You know where to find them when you need them.
