Quality in Everything We Do

Your purchase experience is very important to us at Cargo. We want you to be totally satisfied with your used car purchase -- as well as the overall experience you have with Cargo.

To do this, we take the time that is needed to guarantee our teams ability as well as our inventory's quality, dependability, and overall selection. Every retail used car, retail used truck and retail used SUV that comes through our doors has a CARFAX history report, a clear ownership history as well as a thorough mechanical inspection -- whereby we will ALWAYS exceed Ontario's certification requirements.

We recognize that there is too much to lose to sell you a poor-quality vehicle that will make you not want to come back to see us for your other needs.

We ask ourselves a very simple question before putting a vehicle up for sale: "Would we sell this car to a member of our family or a close friend?". If the answer is yes, then you will see the vehicle up for sale on our lot. If the answer is no, then it will never be up for sale, no matter what kind of deal it can be. We are in this for the long run with our clients and we believe that we should act as your pre-owned vehicle partner when you are in the market for your next used car, truck or SUV.

We have an extensive selection of high-quality used cars from the world's top brands including Nissan, Honda, Toyota, Hyundai, Kia, Ford, GMC Truck, Chevrolet, Volkswagen, Mazda, Subaru, and more.

Buy or Lease a Used Car

With new car prices still soaring, buying a used car can be a great choice when you want a high-quality vehicle without the new car price tag. Even though it's a good option, there's still a lot to keep in mind when buying a used vehicle. Here, we break down everything you need to know about buying a used car.

When buying a used car, take a close look

When buying a used car, it's important to carefully inspect it for any current or inevitable problems.

Examine the exterior and interior of the car
Check for scratches, dents, and rust on the exterior of the car. Make sure the body panels are lined up evenly because uneven panels might mean the vehicle was poorly repaired after an accident. We also recommend checking for wear and tear in the seats, carpet, and floor mats. 

Check for leaks
We recommend looking at the vehicle's underbody and the ground under the vehicle for any evidence of leaks. Any leaks could indicate costly engine or transmission problems in the future.

Take it for a test drive
It's essential to experience the vehicle fully before you commit to buying it. Drive down a rough road and listen for any rattles or squeaks. Pay attention to any bad odors that could indicate leaks or damage.

Can you lease a used car?

In short, yes, you can. Used car leasing is a great option, especially when the car is certified pre-owned (CPO). A CPO vehicle typically has a manufacturer's warranty, which other used vehicles won't have. Leasing a used vehicle can save you significant money because you will likely have a lower monthly payment than a new car lease or purchase. 

How to buy a used car in Ontario

When buying a used car in Ontario, we recommend checking your credit score and setting a budget before going car shopping. This will help you get the right vehicle for your financial situation. Before you buy, use the Kelley Blue Book to research the cars you're interested in. This valuable reference source will tell you how much the car is worth and list any recalls or problems with the vehicle that you're considering. 

How much does a used car cost?

The national average price for a used car in Canada in 2022 is $34,679. However, the actual price you'd pay depends on a number of factors that are unique to each vehicle. These considerations include mileage, exterior and interior condition, year, make and model, and accident history.

How many km's is good for a used car?

In general, a used car with fewer kilometers will last longer, and require fewer repairs. Most mechanics will say that 20,000 kilometers per year is an accurate average for cars that aren't overdriven. 

How much mileage is too much for a used car?
The average mileage per year is around 24,000 kilometers. To figure out if the car's mileage is in an acceptable range, divide the odometer reading by its age to get the average mileage. If it has been driven more than 24,000 km per year, you might want to look for a different used car.
