Recently, there has been a trend in importing U.S. vehicles into the Canadian market. Being a Canadian business, we at Auto Select believe in supporting the Canadian economy (Buy Canadian). We focus on selling Canadian vehicles because many manufactures will not honor warranties on vehicles imported from the United States leaving customers exposed to unnecessary repair costs.
Additionally, U.S. vehicles imported are more likely to have significant red flag issues undetected by vehicle history reports such as Carproof or Carfax. These reasons among others have an effect on the value of U.S. vehicles imported into Canada and contribute to a faster overall rate of depreciation.
Below are the key points to consider when purchasing a “Canadian” vehicle:
- Warranties are 100% honored at any manufacturer dealership without hassle.
- Full history reports are available and accurate via Carproof and Carfax.
- There is a greater demand for vehicles originally being sold in Canada therefore less depreciation than an American vehicle.
