Car like new

testimonials2

Just a note to tell you how pleased Pat and I are with the Yaris that we recently bought from you. The car was so clean and it is equipped so well for our needs, with new tires, new hub caps, new rain guards on the side windows, new battery. After 100K the car is almost like new. It is common knowledge that your dealership specializes in luxury cars that are perfectly prepared for sale, no surprise there, but we are so impressed that you apply the same standards to every car you sell, even a humble cars such as our little Yaris. Incidentally, we were favourably impressed with the route selected for our test drive. Thank you.


Sincerely, John Wheatley

Do the seasons effect car sales trends?

Absolutely.

Untitled 1Generally speaking, spring time is sports car and convertible season, autumn is for 4X4s, SUVs and other more rugged, traction-focused vehicles. Watch the advertising and websites of off-road car makers after a snowfall or sunny, blossom-intensive March, April or May weekend.

Get ahead of the rush

Demand for sports cars, convertibles and roadsters values go up as the temperatures rise.

Some industry statistics suggest the price for a four-year-old, 40,000-mile convertible can rise by $1,600 in the first three months of the year and as the spring season commences. These increases vary by make and model, but generally speaking, a Porsche Cabriolet and a Mazda MX-5 will each see incremental price increases during the spring time and as demand for convertibles grow.

Industry analyst Adrian Rushmore suggests the more premium the make, the bigger the price boost: “Convertibles experience dramatic seasonality, with premium brands seeming to rise first.”

However, the discrepancy in the value of the Canadian and American dollar places additional upward-pressure on used convertible prices in Canada. American buyers are snapping up quality, good-condition sports cars and convertibles in Canada for import into the States. This impacts convertible supply in the Canadian market, exerting even more pressure on pricing in Canada.

Untitled 2A saying used by car dealers is to “sell while the sun shines.” Both tire-kickers and committed buyers are now beginning to visit the car lots, showrooms and websites in search of this year’s sports car, convertible or roadster. Don’t get left in the dust.
