Frequently Asked Questions
How do I find my credit score?
A credit score is sourced from a credit bureau report such as Equifax or Trans-union. The score on your report is designed to quickly assist financial institutions in predicting the amount of risk associated with a major purchase. The lower your credit score relates to a higher risk and a higher credit score shows the lender a lower risk.
What finance rate will I get?
The easy answer is that we will finance you at the best rate possible – in many cases this will be better than conventional rates. Everyone’s case is different, and your rate will be based on an analysis of your individual situation.
What model years can I choose from?
You can choose model years that are six years old and newer BUT before you select an older vehicle let our Car Loan Managers explain a AutoPrice Canada program that allows you to get into a 1 year old or current model year vehicle for the same or nearly the same as older ones. This is not a gimmick it is actually a logical reality once we explain it to you.
Can I use my existing vehicle as a trade-in?
Absolutely! We will work with you in order to get you top dollar for your trade-in vehicle.

What is GAP insurance?
New cars can depreciate as much as 50-70% in the in the first 2-3 years. As a result, insurance payouts can be much lower than the vehicle purchase price-even for those with full coverage. GAP (Guaranteed Auto Protection) insurance is additional protection to cover this "gap" between what one owes on a financed vehicle and its actual cash value, which is usually lower.
As an example, let's say you borrow $26,000 for a new car and its totalled one month later. In the eyes of the insurance company, that vehicle has likely depreciated up to 30% (or about $7800) immediately after you drove it off the lot. Without GAP insurance, you could pay the full difference between what you owe to your lender and what your insurance company pays out to you! You can see why it's important. Please note that GAP insurance is cancelled after refinancing a vehicle. Those who plan to refinance for greater savings, and are currently covered, will need to reapply to maintain it.
