All-in Price Advertising—It’s Your Right!

All-In Price Advertising
Protects Ontario Car Buyers

If a dealer advertises a price for a vehicle (new or used), the price must include ALL fees and charges the dealer intends to collect (except HST and licensing).

Examples of fees or charges that must be included in an advertised price:
  • Freight
  • PDI - PDE (pre-delivery inspection/ expense)
  • Administration fee(s)
  • Government levies (air tax, etc.)
  • OMVIC fee
  • Safety and e-test (unless the ad contains an "Unfit Vehicle" or "As-Is Vehicle" disclosure statement)
  • Products or services that have been pre-installed on a vehicle
