I know what you’re thinking, “new is always better than used.” When we think of a pre owned vehicle we think of someone else’s used sock full of holes, a vehicle that that smells like your grandpa or some other guy’s hockey bag. (No offence to your grandpa I’m sure his old spice smells real nice…..)

However, at the Capital Auto Mall any vehicle that enters our lot has a full 360 inspection by our trained technicians. Everything from the outside of the vehicle, under the vehicle, under the hood, fluid levels, brakes and tires are checked! If the vehicle is in need of any minor work such as new brakes or tires it’s done before the vehicle hits the lot. Although, we only sell the top of the line pre owned vehicles, this means if the vehicle is beaten up and doesn’t meet our standards it will be wholesaled.  Our vehicles are also fully detailed so that they will look and smell good as new!  Therefore, you shouldn’t be so quick to make a decision, have you ever looked at the benefits of purchasing a previously owned vehicle? Here are just a few of the many benefits of buying pre owned compared to new;

Less Depreciation, Lower Price;how-to-save-money-canada

It’s true a new vehicle loses thousands of dollars in value the moment you drive it of the lot. Yes, pre owned vehicles will also depreciate but less and not as fast. By purchasing pre owned you will also avoid the big initial hit the first owner took. Would you rather be the “Original owner” that lost $20,000 or the second owner who saves that much or more!

Reduced Insurance Costs;

The determining factor in the cost of car insurance is the value of the car. A pre owned car has less value than a newer version. Therefore the cost of insurance will be less.

More BANG for your BUCK;

You may be able to step up to a luxury model for the same price as the new plain-Jane version. Consider looking at vehicle a couple years older with all the exact same perks, and save a few thousand dollars.

Peace of Mind;

Buying a pre owned vehicle isn’t like rolling a pair of dice. If you are worried about previous damage on the vehicle you are looking into with the technology of today that can all be looked up online. All you need to know is the vin number of the vehicle.

No Chains Attached;

If you purchase a new vehicle you will likely be stuck with that vehicle for a longer period of time in order to pay it off and not lose money. When you purchase a used vehicle you may be able to pay it off faster or trade it in for a different vehicle without losing money. When buying a previously owned vehicle it is more likely that you can get the same amount you paid for it in a couple years.

downloadAn animal can jump in front of you in the blink of an eye, faster than the speed of light! It is crucial to slow down when you see animal-crossing signs. Road crews didn’t just throw up signs to pass the time, but because heavy animal traffic frequents the area. Remember to always keep your eyes peeled scanning the road and ditches at all times.

If you see an animal  it is important to slow down completely and obviously try to avoid hitting them. However, it is safer to hit the animal than swerve into oncoming traffic or into the ditch and hit a solid object. Deer can range from 100 to 200 lbs and you don’t want them to end up through your windshield lying on your lap. Moose are the exception to the no swerving rule. An adult moose can grow to 1,600 pounds. Colliding with a moose is like hitting another vehicle in 24 inch stilettos. The likelihood of fatal or long-term injuries is high therefore if the situation allows, swerving for a moose is a better option.

If an animal runs out in front of you and you see that the collision is unavoidable, accelerate immediately before you hit the animal, yes I said accelerate. When you step on the brakes, the vehicle pushes its nose downward, providing a lovely ramp for the animal  to slide up and land on your lap accompanied by the windshield. If you stomp on the gas with all your might just before you hit the animal, inertia will pull the car’s nose up. If you accelerate the chances are much better that the car will go over the animal, as opposed to the animal going over the car.

What to do if you hit an animal;

  • If the animal is on the road park your vehicle behind the deer and turn on your flashers so that oncoming traffic doesn’t hit the deer, then call the local RCMP detachment so that they can take the appropriate steps.
  • If the deer went off the road and into the ditch pull out of the way of traffic and call the local RCMP to notify them.
  • Report your claim to SGI as soon as possible.
  • If there is any serious injuries, fatalities, or your vehicle is non drivable call 911.

It is important that you don’t touch or get close to the animal because if it happens to still be alive it could kick and injure you with its strong legs. You don’t want to be lying on the road along with the deer do you?!

Wild life is more active during dusk, dawn, and at night. It is important not to drive if you are feeling tired and not alert. You should always maintain your lights, tire tread and breaks to have a faster reaction and stopping time when an animal jumps out of nowhere. Drive Safe!
