We get asked these questions all the time, and while we love helping our customers, we can’t help but roll our eyes at some of these questions. So, let’s get started with the most frequently asked questions at a car dealership, shall we?

Q: How much is this car?
A: Well, sir/madam, that’s an excellent question. However, I can’t tell you until you give me your social security number, your blood type, and your first-born child. Just kidding! But really, the price is right here on the sticker, just like it is on every other car on the lot. Please, don’t make me point it out for you.

Q: Can I test drive this car?
A: No, sorry. We’re a car dealership, but we don’t believe in test driving cars. Of course, you can test drive the car! Just don’t expect to take it on a cross-country road trip or use it as [...]

Welcome to our dealership, where we take pride in helping our customers keep their vehicles in top-notch condition. As Canadians, we know all too well the importance of maintaining our cars in a country that experiences all four seasons in full force. From freezing winter temperatures to scorching summers, our vehicles go through a lot, and it’s crucial to give them the TLC they deserve. In this post, we’ll provide you with some valuable tips on maintaining your car like a pro in Canada.

Keep Your Car Clean All Year Round
Keeping your car clean isn’t just about aesthetics; it’s about protecting your vehicle from damage caused by the elements. During the winter months, salt and sand are used on the roads to combat ice and snow, which can cause rust and other damages to your car’s exterior. That’s why it’s essential to wash your car regularly, including the undercarriage. Don’t forget about the [...]

Are you in the market for a preowned vehicle? Then this post is for you! Today, we’ll be discussing the process of reconditioning a used car and getting it ready to be preowned certified. We’ll also talk about why changing the brakes and tires if they have less than 70% of life left is important.

What is reconditioning?

Reconditioning is the process of taking a used car and making it feel and look like it’s brand new. At a reputable dealership, this process involves a thorough inspection of the car’s mechanical and electrical systems, as well as a detailed cleaning of both the interior and exterior. The goal is to ensure that the car is in excellent condition and ready to be sold to a new owner.

Preowned certification is a stamp of approval that signifies that the car has been thoroughly inspected and meets a set of standards set by the manufacturer. This certification [...]

Hey there, folks! It’s your favorite car dealership, Lebada Motors, here to talk about how getting a car loan can actually improve your credit score in Canada. Yes, you heard that right – we’re not just here to sell you a car, we’re here to help you build your credit too.

Now, you might be thinking, “How on earth can taking out a loan improve my credit score?” Well, my friend, buckle up because we’re about to take you on a ride (pun intended) and break it down for you.

First things first, let’s talk about what credit score is and why it’s so important. Your credit score is a three-digit number that reflects your creditworthiness – essentially, how likely you are to pay back any debts or loans. The score ranges from 300 to 900, with the higher number indicating a better credit score.

Why is this important, you ask? Well, your credit score [...]

Leasing may sound like a good idea, but trust us, it’s not always the smartest choice. As a car dealership, we’ve seen it all, and we’re here to give you the real tea on why financing a used car is the smarter option.

First of all, let’s talk about the obvious – cost. When you lease a car, you’re basically paying for the depreciation of the vehicle over a set period of time. Sure, the monthly payments may be lower, but you’re not building any equity in the car. And when the lease is up, you’re left with nothing to show for it. On the other hand, when you finance a used car, you’re making payments towards owning that vehicle. Once the loan is paid off, the car is all yours, and you can either continue driving it or sell it for some extra cash. Plus, used cars generally have a lower sticker price, which [...]

Welcome to Lebada Motors, your one-stop-shop for high-quality pre-owned vehicles. If you’re in the market for a new car, we strongly recommend that you consider an ex-rental pre-owned vehicle. Why, you ask? Well, we’ve got a few reasons why choosing an ex-rental pre-owned vehicle is the smarter choice.

Firstly, rental cars are usually newer models and have low mileage, meaning they’re almost as good as new, but at a fraction of the cost. At Lebada Motors, we have a wide selection of ex-rental vehicles available for you to choose from, including cars, SUVs, and trucks. We pride ourselves on offering only the best quality pre-owned vehicles to our customers, and our ex-rental vehicles are no exception. These vehicles have been well-maintained and serviced, so you can be confident in their quality and condition.

Secondly, our ex-rental pre-owned vehicles qualify for better terms and rates because they are newer and have low mileage. This means that [...]
