wprager wrote:Hey, another question. There are some SmartCar EVs in the same ballpark.  Their range is pitiful but it's fine for my commute (and we have charging stations at work). Would you recommend buying a used EV or is that asking for trouble? What's the life expectancy on these batteries?

I wouldn't recommend a used one because the battery steadily loses it's ability to come to a full charge and after a few years you're at about 80 to 85% depending on how often they charged the battery.

If you do get a used get a year old with low kms so you don't pay the depreciation but you also know the battery is in decent shape. Batteries usually come with an 8 to 10 year warranty too so wouldn't worry too much.

Hey, how much is my 2005 Toyota Matrix worth?  It has 298,000km.  Oh, the rear wiper arm broke and fell off the other day when I closed the hatch.  Purrs like a kitten though!

Is there still a cool off period? What if you trade in your POS for that "$500 off anything on our lot", but then bring it back before the cool of period expires. If the dealer has already sent it to the junk yard they can't give it back, so does the buyer who up keeping the $500?

No cool off period. There is a 30 day exchange privilege on certified pre-owned though.

Can anyone explain how the feds think it's ok to charge HST multiple times on the same product? It makes absolutely no sense! Not only that but they also charger the blue book value, don't they?

Effing crooks.

They only charge the tax on the purchase price unless you have a trade in then they only charge tax on the difference.

I think your thinking about gifting a vehicle to someone. They charge blue book tax on it I thin.

Not even gifting. But if you sell for less than BB they will charge HST on the higher amount.

My main point was they already charged HST when the car was new. Charging again should be illegal.

Gotcha. I do agree that taxes shouldn't be charged multiple times but if they don't get you there they'll get you somewhere else I'm sure.

I only have to worry about GST out here Razz

More to the point. Did you find and buy a vehicle yet? How goes the shopping?

Well my car keeps starting. Sometime takes a couple tries. I figure with an 11 km commute if it starts taking 2-3 cranks each time I probably don't want to wait till winter. But on the other hand it usually starts on the first crank on colder days, so who knows.

Drive it into the ground then I say. Just don't put any money into it in repairs.

My best suggestion is find a friend who's a Car Sales Manager and get them to find you a really nice car at wholesale. It'll save you a couple grand depending on what you get.
