TRUSTED SASKATOON USED AUTO DEALER share a Trusted Tip on Buying a used vehicle  auto tips

Trying to find the vehicle

It is always tough to say where you will locate the perfect car or if it even exists. It is always possible to find the best car at the worst place or the worst car at the best place based on the retailer's reputation. It is important to be patient; a rushed purchase can quickly turn into huge headaches. Sometimes it seems easier to settle only to find out after the fact that your hastened purchase was not the right one.

Where to look for your new used car

You can look in all newspaper classified ads. You can also surf the Internet and look for websites such as our own Kijiji.saskatoon or You will be able to browse this large inventory to get an idea of what the average selling price may be for the vehicle that interests you. Also, if you are not certain of your choice, you will be able to compare models side by side, read reviews by owners and professionals. After you have increased your level of knowledge on the vehicles and have found one that fits your criteria, make an appointment to go see the vehicle.

Be well aware of the phenomenon known as the curb-sider or fake private-seller. As a tip, when you are calling an individual, simply ask about the car for sale. Should the person reply "Which one?" chances are you are dealing with an unlicensed re-seller.

Should I buy from a dealer or a private individual?

Remember that by buying from a private individual will allow you to save on taxes but will not permit you to purchase an extended warranty. By purchasing a car from a dealer, you will have the option of purchasing an extended warranty, which can save you money in the long run.

Beware of fraudulent ads that require a deposit before you can see the vehicle that is for sale. In fact, never ever send out any sum of money without first finding out more about the seller or coming into direct contact with him or her.



Trusted auto dealers have GUARANTEES unlike thos ' other used car dealers' know the ones we are talking about!



TRUSTED SASKATOON USED AUTO DEALER share a Trusted Tip on researching and buying a Used Vehicle

Great Trusted Auto buying Tips from Trusted Saskatoon Auto Dealers 

Identifying your needs and budget

Every person and family can have different requirements or expectations. It is supremely easy to get carried away with the desire for the slightly older or newer more equipped model for only $2,000 more. The catch is that, after all, it will only cost an extra $50 a month. The key, as in buying a pre-owned vehicle, is looking at the total cost.

Research the type of vehicle you are interested in

Strongly consider reliability, safety and ownership costs for example. You can find this precious information in magazines such as Consumer Reports or on reputable websites such as in Canada.


Trusted Guarantees they are different to those ' stereo typical used car dealers' know the ones we are talking about!



TRUSTED SASKATOON USED AUTO DEALER share a Trusted Tip on shopping for a Used Vehicle

A great Trusted Tip on Shopping for a Used Vehicle

QUESTION: " My wife and I are contemplating the purchase of a “new” vehicle. By new, I mean new to us, we're not hung up on a brand new vehicle." Russ and Sandie

ANSWER: Those in the know, know that the best way to make a great deal is to use other people's money. By that I mean, let someone else pay for the depreciation of a vehicle, so it makes a ton of sense to consider the option of purchasing an off-lease vehicle or previously loved vehicle . An off-lease is usually two or three years old, will still hold the remainder of the manufacturer's warranty, is usually loaded with options, well maintained and will be in good cosmetic condition.

Consider the following points when it comes to making the second-most expensive purchase most people will ever make, next to a home.

•Set a budget. You will be amazed by how fast you will whittle down the overwhelming choices that are out there.

•Decide if you want to purchase or lease. Yes, you can lease used vehicles. However, unless you have a business that you can write off the lease payments against, I suggest you purchase. When you lease, you are basically renting a vehicle and the agreement comes with strings such as keeping the kilometres low, regular, documented maintenance and ensuring the cosmetic condition is top notch. Purcahsing a vehicle makes much more financial sense for a typical persons circumstances.

•What will you be using the vehicle for? Determine what you will be doing with the vehicle 95 per cent of the time. Unless you have definitive answers to any or all of the following points, it's likely you can get away with a small car. I used the 95 per cent figure because in the mid 1980s General Motors conducted a study to determine how it should outfit its pickup truck line. GM found that pickups were used as pickups only 5 per cent of the time. This turned the tables on light-duty trucks forever by making them more car-like.

•Do you have needs that require car pooling?

•Are you expecting to take bunches of kids to hockey or soccer? (There's a lot of gear to be slogged around along with the kids)

•Do you expect to haul cargo ? Will it be light or heavy?

•Will you be towing a trailer or boat? Lake life, Winter snow mobiling and Recreational vehicles are HUGE in Saskatchewan..and you need the right vehicle if you have those needs!

•Will you be off-roading or driving on snow covered roads?

•Is fuel economy important? Many manufacturers offer the same model with four cylinder as well as six- or even eight-cylinder engines. You don't have to settle for what's popular. With some planning and patience, you will find what you are looking for.

•Check out recalls and service campaigns. This can be done by contacting that brand's dealer or by subscribing to service information providers like  or by visiting the Transport Canada web site.

•Check out Consumer Reports. This can be done online or by magazine. Find out consensus for your choice of vehicle. Consumer Reports publishes a yearly document that not only spells out findings by their experts but also publishes vehicle owner survey results.

•Take your investigation to the next level: check out online forums. What are people saying that own these vehicles? It's amazing the feedback you will discover....find a TRUSTED SASKATOON USED AUTO DEALER , who you can be guaranteed to provide you with unbiased, honest to goodness advice..we know the vehicles and we know what's a good or a bad buy for your specific set of needs!   

•Take your narrowed-down list to a Trusted Used dealer who specialise in ' previously loved vehicles'  . Drive all your choices – you may find that a test drive will make you wonder why you even considered this vehicle in the first place – or you may wonder why it took you so long to find “the perfect car”.

Russ and Sandie, in the end, you like everyone else will likely buy with your heart. But now at least you have an idea how to narrow down the search and what to expect along the way. Good luck and above all, have fun. Buying a vehicle should be a highlight .....there's nothing better than handing over the keys to a new owner and seeing the joy on their face as they drive away feels GREAT!!
