Nothing is more exciting than buying a new car. If you’re a parent, nothing beats seeing the gleaming look on your children’s faces when you give them the key to their first vehicle as a gift. But you’re on a tight budget, the next best thing to a new car would be a pre-owned car in excellent working condition. Of course, you would only want the safest ride for your child, right?

In Ontario, Canada, the Ontario Motor Vehicle Industry Council oversees the deals and sales of new and used cars. The OMVIC is also responsible for making sure that salespersons and dealers adhere to the Motor Vehicle Dealers Act. This law requires all those involved in the motor vehicle trade to register and undergo background checks as a way to ensure that they are qualified to sell cars.

The Consumer Protection Act works hand in hand with the Motor Vehicle Dealers Act to save buyers from “curbsiders”, companies that either pretend to be private parties but are really unregistered dealers, or those who falsify or tamper with the history of a car. Accordingly, the Federal-Provincial-Territorial Consumer Measures Committee has produced a Consumer Handbook that provides guidelines not just for purchasing cars but also other products.

When purchasing a vehicle, it’s always a good idea to read handbooks and reports first. That way, you will be well prepared when all the options are laid out in front of you, especially if you’re looking for a pre-owned car. Before going to any dealer, based on how well it fits your lifestyle, now just how good it’ll look in your garage. If you’re in the Ontario area, you will find plenty of trusted used cars Brampton dealers.

You need to remember that a dealer who offers the lowest prices is not always the smartest choice. With a used car, it’s important that you get a vehicle history report first so you’d know if a car has been in an accident before, or if it had any issues that may pose future safety or maintenance problems. You can easily find quality pre-owned or used cars Brampton by searching online.

Once you’ve purchased the car, you’ll have to take care of insurance, maintenance, and fuel costs. Whether you dream of owning big cars like Explorers or the kind of used Fusions
