Normal 0 false false false false EN-CA JA X-NONE

Canadians tend to be practical people, and when the average Canadian driver thinks about buying a car, their questions are practical questions — how can I get a rugged, durable, stylish vehicle that I will enjoy driving and that can get me through any kind of weather for a reasonable price?


It’s no secret that brand-new cars lose a lot of their value just by being driven off the dealership lot, so for many Canadians, the smartest way to get a dream car is to buy a pre-owned model that is in good condition. This is why, at Colony Ford in Brampton, we are proud to offer a wide range of pre-owned Ford vehicles that have been hand-selected for value and quality.


If you want to know how you can save big on a pre owned Ford this spring, here are three things to look out for when shopping:




1. Buy a Recent Model


You may not want to pay for a brand-new model, but that doesn’t mean you need to settle for an old one. One of the best ways to guarantee you get a great deal on a car is by looking for pre-owned cars from recent model years, which is why our inventory of used cars includes a lot of Ford vehicles from 2016 and 2017 that offer up-to-date safety tech and modern features.


Industry experts estimate that a car will depreciate by around fifteen percent in its first year, so when you buy a 2017 vehicle in 2019, you’re getting a nearly new car at a significant discount.


2. Get a Good Financing Plan


Buying a pre-owned car doesn’t necessarily mean saving up all the money or getting a high-interest bank loan to cover the cost — when you shop at Colony Ford in Brampton, you can get a great deal on a used Ford by working with our finance department on a payment plan that works for you.


If you want to be able to pick up a used Ford this month, the first thing you should do is contact us today about the financing possibilities that are available. With the right finance plan, you can save money on a pre-owned vehicle without worrying about whether or not your credit can cover the expense. 


3. Look for an Eco-Friendly Car or SUV


Finally, purchasing an eco-friendly vehicle like a Ford EcoSport or one of our EcoBoost SUVs, sedans, or Mustangs is a great way to pick up an affordably priced car that will also be affordable to maintain.


As environmental questions have come to play an ever-greater role in the automotive industry, Ford has led the way in making low-emissions vehicles available to a wider audience, and we are proud that our even our pre-owned Fords deliver great fuel mileage. Going green has never been more economical!
