The phenomenon – Vancouver Island’s Classifieds becoming a dominant force in Used Car Classifieds



We’ve always known that people onVancouver Island in general, and those in Victoria in particular, march to a different drummer. It’s no different when it comes to online classifieds for used cars. Elsewhere in Canada, many portals such as,,, are some of the popular places to look for a used vehicle. Here on Vancouver Island, the network and in particular are the powerhouses of classifieds.

Many car dealers have listings on the site and private sellers abound. Although there are many perceived deals to be had from private sellers, there are many perils  the consumer must be aware of since the private sellers are unregulated. Most dealers in BC are registered and regulated by the Vehicle Sales Authority and this gives the buyer a level of protection and assurance. In addition, many dealers provide CarProof information on vehicles – here at Pacific Mazda, we don’t believe anyone should buy a used vehicle without a Carproof report.

Check out some of the Vancouver Island locations of the UsedEverywhere network – remember – there is a certain safety an recourse in buying a used car from a dealer and, in particular, a franchised new car dealer that is a member of the New Car Dealers Association of BC.
