All-in pricing is the law! If a dealer’s advertisement includes a price for a vehicle, that price must include all fees and charges (except HST and licensing).
A written contract is your best protection so ensure all promises and conditions are written on the contract before signing (e.g. “xxx to be repaired” or “subject to partner’s approval”).
By law, dealers are required to provide in writing 22 specific disclosures. They include: collision damage over $3,000, required repairs to major components and the true distance the vehicle has travelled. Ensure all required disclosures are written on the contract before signing.
In Ontario, there is no cooling-off period for vehicle sales. Carefully read contract, once signed, sale is final.
If seller’s name and ownership don’t match, turn on your creepometer as you may be dealing with a curbsider.
UVIP provides information regarding previous owners, historical odometer data and lien information.
Vehicle history reports often show important information related to reported incidents or collisions.
A pre-purchase inspection can give peace-of- mind or can save you thousands of dollars and prevent you from buying someone else’s problem. A good mechanic should be able to determine if a vehicle is in good shape or if it requires repairs the seller failed to disclose or is unaware of.
