Used Cars Toronto Doesn’t Want You to Know about

Look, I’m not saying anyone is trying to keep secret the used car dealerships Toronto has that offer great service. I’m just asking, why is nobody talking about this? Some of the best used cars Toronto has for sale are just sitting there and I bet I know why.

Used car salesmen. Yes, they have a bad reputation. In fact, they’re kind of like the stereotypical sleaze-ball profession. But I am here to tell you that they don’t deserve it! I had such an amazing experience buying my used car that I could kick myself for not doing it sooner.

First of all, everyone’s worried about being taken advantage of, right? I was, for sure. But when I found the car I wanted, I found that the dealership was really willing to work with me. They let me take it for a test drive and even encouraged me to have my mechanic look at it. I thought that might be a trick. Like, yeah, sure, have your mechanic look at it. That’s how honest we are, wink wink.” But it was legitimate! I wasn’t able to get a spot on his schedule until 2 days later and they were totally cool with holding it for me.

When I finally got it there, my mechanic gave me the go ahead. He even said he was impressed with how well it was maintained. All of the fluids were topped off, the tires all had the right amount of pressure, and he said he had nothing to warn me about.

And I thought, okay, you’re just saying that because you want me to buy it and when something happens, I’ll bring it to you. But then I thought, why am I being so cynical? These people don’t deserve the reputations they have. They’ve been awesome to me.

I decide right then and there to buy that car. I called the salesmen on my way back and told him to get the paperwork ready because I was doing it. Best decision I ever made.

I don’t know why I never bought a used car before. Most likely, it’s because I was afraid of all the crap you hear about how they’re all lemons and the people who sell them are jerks. Well, I’m here to say that is the furthest thing from the truth. And I have the used car to prove it.

Now all I need to do find some cheap no deposit car insurance for my car. One thing I’ve learned living in toronto is that car insurance here is too expensive. When I live in georgia I paid way less. I think I had some very cheap car insurance no deposit for about $60 a month in georgia. Morale of the story = Georgia car insurance is cheap!

Anyway at least I got an awesome new car, even if my auto insurance is expensive.

 

Good Car Insurance – My Embarrassing Reason to Buy

Debated weather or not I should share this on my blog, and decided it’s for the best that I do!

I’m no stranger to embarrassing moments. In fact, it’s the main reason I refused to join my friends on one of those silent meditation retreat things in India. I can think of nothing worse than sitting in a room with only my own thoughts for days on end. I’d hit myself over the head with a rock immediately, rather than allow my brain to bombard me with every even slightly humiliating thing I’ve done in my lifetime.

I may not want to think about them for days on end, but I do believe that you can learn from these bouts of embarrassment. And just one of the things I have learned is the value of decent car insurance.

About a year ago, I was back home for a few months looking to find a job to replenish my bank account. I scored an interview at a company I really wanted to work at. Turned up surprisingly on time. The interview went pretty well. I strolled out of the building feeling positive. And got into my car, which was parked in the car park right outside the front entrance.

I then proceeded to, very loudly and confidently, reverse directly into the offices I had just been interviewed at. At full force. And in the direct eye line of a large percentage of the company staff, including the woman that had just interviewed me. Excellent.

This scores above average on my list of embarrassing moments. Yet it taught me an important lesson. Get decent car insurance. I already had it, out of luck. But it would have been much more difficult to laugh off my embarrassment had I not.

Oh, and in case anyone was wondering. Despite leaving a lasting impression. I didn’t get the job.
