Frequently Asked Questions

used trucks, used cars
  • What kind of used cars and trucks can we expect to find in your inventory?

  • Our inventory in constantly changing, we carry a range of used cars, used pickup trucks and used minivans generally between the $5000 to $15000 price ranges. We focus on making sure whatever we sell is in top quality condition.
  • How do you determine the true value of used cars?

  • There are a couple of methods to find the value of used cars. One is using the black book, which gives u a good indication of the value. The other way is to compare the used cars to other similar used cars on the market to see what other people are selling them for. Its important to remember that no two used cars for sale are the same and that not all dealerships or private sales will recondition the cars to the same high standard that we use which means they are worth different amounts.
  • What is super certified?

  • Super certified is our certification process for our used cars and trucks and used minivans. For more information please visit our super certified page.
  • What warranties do you sell when people buy used cars?

  • For all of our cars we offer a 6 month comprehensive warranty from Lubrico included in our sale price. For more information on this warranty please visit our warranty page . When we finance our used cars through our in house financing we offer a full term 50/50 warranty. More information on that as well can be found at the link above. Even though we sell the best used cars our dealership still recommends a warranty to go with all used cars. We offer a large selection of warranties from Lubrico covering a range of potential issues to protect your used minivans and used cars and trucks. Even buying used cars from dealerships you still should have protection.
  • What do I have to bring to get a car loan?

  • Typically to complete an application for a car loan you would need at least one months worth of pay stubs to prove your income and then fill out an application on the spot with things such as your home address, SIN and other personal information. You also normally would have to sign a release to have a lender run your credit score in order to get approval for used cars finance. Other dealerships with used cars don't offer the same type of bad credit car loans that we offer so just because you have been refused a car loan somewhere else does not mean we will not be able to approve you.
  • What is a bad credit car loan?

  • A bad credit car loan is simply an auto loan extended to someone with bad credit. For more information on a bad credit car loan please go to our finance center where it is explained in detail.
  • I've been bankrupt or am in bankruptcy, can I get a car loan?

  • Yes you can, at our used car dealerships we offer in house car financing and will extend a car loan to someone in bankruptcy our coming out of bankruptcy.
  • I am receiving government assistance such as EI or social assistance, can I get approved for a car loan?

  • At a lot of other used cars dealerships you will not be able to get used cars finance with assistance being your source of income. At Super Dave's our in house financing program accepts all types of government assistance as your source of income, so in short we can approve your auto loan!
  • Do you sell cheap used cars?

  • When you buy used cars u want to make sure that the used cars you are looking at are in good condition. If u are looking for cheap used cars it is very difficult to have used cars under $5000 that we are able to put our name behind. The reason being is that on all our used cars and trucks in order to Super Certify them they have to meet certain quality standards and when you are spending that much money to buy used minvans or used cars and trucks the quality standards often cannot be met.
  • How do I know im getting the best used cars or used vans?

  • At our used cars dealership we encourage our customers to get a second opinion on the mechanical condition of the used cars or used trucks they are looking to buy. That way if there mechanic looks at the car they get a second opinion to make sure they are buying the best used cars available.
  • Do you have any used trucks?

  • Yes we do get used trucks in our inventory however not as much as used cars or used vans. Good quality used trucks are hard for used car dealers to find so that is why you may not see as many used trucks as you see used cars or used minvans in our inventory.
  • Do you take trade ins?

  • Yes we do, and we will offer more for your used cars and trucks then other used car dealerships will offer you. Come see our friendly staff and we would be happy to give you a fair offer on your trade.
  • Will getting a car loan help my credit?

  • Yes it will, as long as the lender you are getting your auto loan from reports their client’s payments to the credit bureau. A car loan is actually one of the most aggressive ways to improve your credit. If you need a bad credit car loan our in house financing program can help you and we do report our client's auto loan payments to the credit bureau.
