Driving in Toronto is never easy or stress-free, but as winter sets in with slushy roads, icy highways, and corrosive road salt everywhere, driving to your job can feel like more work than work itself. But while shopping for a used car in January may not be at the top of you mind, purchasing a car at this time of year is a great way to take the pressure off your wallet.
Data shows that while November and December are the months with the highest percentage of deals, January is not far behind. There are several reasons for this, one being that as of January 1st, the previous year’s models officially become one year old. Dealers have a huge incentive to sell them quickly so they can replace them with the newest models. Keeping an eye out for deals at this time of year can be even more rewarding than usual.
This is why this month might be a good time to save big and buy a used Mazda before the deals slow down with the arrival of spring. If you visit the Yorkdale Dufferin Mazda dealership, for example, you can peruse a host of fine pre-owned cars, including popular models like the Mazda3 and the Mazda CX-5, at truly competitive prices. And with financing from 0.9%, and a 7-year/140,000 km limited powertrain warranty, buying a certified pre-owned Mazda is a sure-fire way to raise your spirits this winter.
As a Toronto Mazda dealer, the staff at Yorkdale Dufferin know all about the particular challenges you face driving in the GTA, and their sales team can get you in a used Mazda that can navigate everything the city throws at it, from the high speed rush of the Gardiner Expressway to the slippery streetcar tracks and narrow alleys off Queen West. With its responsive steering and smooth handling, the Mazda3 is especially adept at manoeuvring through the busy streets of Toronto. No wonder it consistently scores as one of the best vehicles on the market.
The CX-5, Mazda’s crossover SUV, can comfortably fit five passengers, and its blend of sports-car inspired handling with SUV luxury and utility makes it the ideal vehicle both for dropping the kids off at school and for driving them up to the slopes for a weekend of skiing. It’s hard to beat for all-around performance, and even older models hold up extremely well thanks to Mazda’s precision engineering.
Of course, winter is especially hard on cars, and even the best vehicle needs to be maintained to keep it working at peak performance. The team of automotive experts at Yorkdale Dufferin can also help you with maintenance and repairs down the road. And with an extensive knowledge of all Mazda vehicles, should you need help sourcing the right parts, they can help you find the one that’s right for your car.
January might never be the ideal month for driving, but this year why not make navigating the busy streets easier with a quality used car.
