GUIDE TO BUY AND DRIVE A CAR IN ONTARIO

  POINTS TO TAKE CARE WHEN YOU BUY A USED CAR

 

With common sense and making some careful observations to specific points of the car you want to buy, you will probably find the car you need.

 

Always inspect the car at daylight.

Verify the excessive wear in the car interior, brake and accelerator. New pedals may indicate that have been too used, exterior painted may indicate that the car has suffered accidents.

If you drive it, try all the transmission points, to evaluate aligning, direction, brake and eventual noises, especially in the tires axes.

Verify that the car is not leaking oil below the engine or transmission. Look carefully below the car, and if it is possible, leave a paper there for a while.

Look carefully for oxidation traces. The salt used during winter to dissolve ice, many cars has strong signs of oxidation.

Pay especial attention if there is much smoke in the smoking pipe. If the smoke is blue, the engine will soon need an expensive repair.

If the direction goes to one side while you are driving, it will soon need alignment.

Verify kilometre meter, a car runs an average of 20.000 to 25.000 km per year.

If you smell smoke or burn oil odour inside the car DO NOT BUY this car.

 

RECOMMENDATION at the end of this chapter). After driving several minutes, look for any strange smell or burn oil odour, with doors and windows closed. Then with the fan in different positions.

 

Before closing the deal, ask a mechanic to revise the car.

 

Once you close the deal, you will have 6 days to register yourself as the new owner at the Ministry of Transport or Drive and Vehicle License Issuing Office, where you have to bring the UVIP (Used Vehicle Information Package). Buyer must pay taxes calculated over the price and pay for the identification of the vehicle.  You must present the Certificate of Drive Clean Program and the Liability Insurance Certificate.

 

 

CAR PLATES: The identification for the vehicle (car plate) is issued to the owner (not to the car) and he may use it in the future in other cars. When a car is sold to other owner, the identification shall change according to the new owner. In Canada you have the possibility of PERSONALIZED your identification, to ask it with a special word, special combination of letters or numbers, with a maximum of 8 characters. Example: “MYCAR”, “CANADA42”, “15151515”, etc... When this car is sold, you can maintain your identification and you can use it again in your new car. 

 

 

RECOMMENDATIONS

 

Don’t buy cars from USA which may come from flow zones. These cars are offered at low prices, but they might be under flows and electric and electronic components may fail.

 

 In Ontario and other regions of Canada, even though winter is cold, summer is very hot, with weeks in June, July and August with temperatures over 30 C and thermic sensation near 40 C due to high humidity. If you can afford it, search a car with air conditioning and verify it works. This recommendation is very important, especially if you have kids
