I want to say thanks again for the whole experience of buying our Audi A6 Avant from Victoria Premium Automobiles. My wife and I were so appreciative of the no pressure approach that you and your team have and your obvious interest in making sure we were happy with this vehicle. It was clear to us that, although you are in the business of selling cars, the main goal really did seem to be selling us the car that was right for us. I was (pleasantly) surprised when you suggested we take the car overnight to be sure it was right for us….I have not had that kind of experience from any car dealer previously.
You stand behind the quality of the vehicles you sell and, I can honestly say, go beyond that. I can’t recommend Victoria Premium Automobiles highly enough.
More Canadian consumers are opting to lease when acquiring new and used cars.
Leasing fell to a low of seven per cent in 2009 but has since increased in popularity to the point where almost 20 percent of cars in Canada were leased in 2014. This is well below the 45 per cent peak in 2005 (a percentage greatly reduced when car manufacturers got out of leasing in 2008 during the global financial crisis and when credit markets seized) but leasing is an option more Canadian consumers are seeking out for new and used vehicles.
According to George Iny, president of the consumer group Automobile Protection Association (APA), leasing has the advantage of reducing monthly payments because consumers pay mainly for the time they have the car and the kilometres they put on it.
Speaking to The Canadian Press in June 2014, Iny went on to explain that leasing is attractive because there’s little maintenance while cars are under warranty and no worry about reselling at the end of the lease.
There are also other benefits, including:
• A monthly payment that is lower than purchasing a similar new vehicle.
• Low down payments.
• Taxes are calculated on the monthly installments instead of up front on the total purchase price.
Combined, many consumers find that they can afford a more expensive model if they choose to lease rather than buy.
If you are looking for the lowest possible monthly payments, or the best possible tax write-off, VPA LEASING will work with you to build the lease that fits your needs and budget.
VPA Leasing can help you source the vehicle you are looking for and arrange favourable leasing terms. Or, if you have found what you are looking for at another dealer – or even through a private seller - VPA LEASING can help you lease the vehicle.
VPA LEASING provides lease funding for new and used vehicles and equipment for individual contractors as well as small and large business owners.
I just wanted to drop you a quick note of heartfelt congratulations and ongoing support from the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce on the “official” grand opening of Victoria Premium Automobiles. I believe that VPA will prove to be the auto dealer of choice, and best in your class!
Dear Victoria Premium Auto,
Here's a testimonial for you! I can't say enough thanks for making my experience in buying my "new to me" Mercedes crossover R350 a pleasure and a success. I wasn't planning on a new vehicle just now, and wasn't looking forward to the "shopping for a car" process.
I had already been to a couple of other dealerships and my reluctance to get in the game was further reinforced by having to endure a lecture from a 25 year old on why I shouldn't buy a car in the USA (wasn't planning to and don't know why it came up), the car sales experience was not looking good.
Then I met all the folks at Victoria Premium Auto. Respectful, knowledgeable, and with a fleet of beautiful cars in perfect shape to choose from you are the consumate car professional. You were easy to talk to, listened to what I was looking for and provided guidance and insight. Everything from the test drives to the bumper to bumper extended warranty was top notch and completed with professionalism and care. Thank You. You have eliminated the exasperating part of car shopping - dealing with the "car guys"!
There was no high pressure sale, but rather tolerance for me completing the deal while away on a business trip in Toronto, being able to walk across the lot to get the insurance arranged even as the plates were being installed, and you even saved me a gift bag from your open house that I missed. It's the little things ...
I love my new car, will recommend you to my friends and look forward to seeing you again. Thanks.
I wish to thank you and the Victoria Premium Automobiles staff for your efforts in finding, vetting, shipping and preparing the 2006 BMW 650i of which I took delivery a few weeks ago. The car is flawless, as was assured to me by you and the Toronto seller. Pre-sale preparation and meticulous attention to detail during that process was much appreciated.
I had been looking for some time for a late model, low mileage, well optioned 650i convertible with a six speed manual gearbox. During the search I had many discussions with sales staff of other the high-end car lots in and around Victoria. As I was a committed purchaser, I suggested these individuals use their resources to locate a 650i as described. Until I received your call that you had located the specific car; I might add only two days after our initial meeting, I had not received a single response from the other lots. I believe this speaks to a philosophy that customer service begins well before a sale.
The entire process was well organized and, from a buyer's perspective, managed so as to mitigate inherent uncertainties of an out-of-province auto purchase. Because of this and my other comments above, I will recommend the services of Victoria Premium Automobiles without reservation.
Please feel free to share the above comments with prospective VPA customers.
To Whom It May Concern, this is to advise of my experience with Victoria Premium Auto. I purchased a 2004 Maserati from Ed and could not be happier in the way the car drives and handles.
My experience with Victoria Premium Auto has been great. They have backed up every word and promise, which I didn't expect from a used car dealer. Ed has turned into more of a friend than a salesman or owner. They kept their word and promise in regards to warranty of the car and have stood behind their product and actions.
My next step is a Ferrari and I would not trust anyone but Ed for this purchase. I would not hesitate to recommend Ed and Victoria Premium Auto to anyone that is looking for a new or used car.
I would just like to let you know how pleased my wife and I were with our experience at Victoria Premium Automobiles while purchasing our BMW 323i. Our sales representative David Carere was most pleasant to deal with. He looked after all our questions, was friendly and a joy to work with. As we are not too familiar with the city it was great that he went on the road test and guided us around or we could have ended up in Seattle!!We also wish to thank you too Ed for assisting in the business end of the transaction and arranging for several additional items we required for our BMW. Will not hesitate to let our friend in the area know of your dealership.
