Interesting Canadian Car Related Facts

Love cars? So do we. Here are some interesting facts related to vehicles in Canada just for you.

Stolen vehicles

CBC news reported in December 2018 that car theft is up in Canada by 6% with some provinces effected more than others. And interestingly, the most stolen car is the Ford F-350 with 8 different versions in the top 10 stolen cars.  

In 2017, 85,000 vehicles were reported as stolen in Canada. Stolen Canadian vehicles end up being smuggled into countries such as Hong Kong, Thailand, Vietnam, China, Belgium, Germany, and Italy.

Accidents

It is estimated that there are 160,000 car accidents every year in Canada.  Over $1 million worth of vehicle damage is caused by moose related car accidents each year.

canadian car factsSnow removal

A large portion of city budgets goes towards snow removal each year, but one Canadian city spends more than the others. Montreal has half the population of Toronto but ends up spending double (about $155 million) on snow removal each year.

Left or right?

Driving in Canada was mixed in the provinces with being left or right sided until 1947 when Newfoundland made the final switch to the right-hand side. The differences occurred because of having both the British (left) and French (right) influences. The right-hand side was seen as preferable because driving is on the right in the US and therefore the border changes would have become an issue if Canada continued to drive on the left.

Most popular vehicles

The best-selling vehicles in Canada in 2018 were the Ford F-series, Ram 1500 and Honda Civic. The Canadian vehicle market is leaning increasingly more towards SUVs and pick-up trucks, and small vehicles such as the Fiat 500 and Smart Car will soon be disappearing.

interesting facts carsVehicle production

In 2016, 1.3 million vehicles were produced in Canada. Canada contributes 13% of all vehicles produced in North America and is the 10th leading vehicle producer in the world.

Winter tires

Quebec is the only province where it is legally mandatory to have winter tires between December 15th to March 15th. It isn’t legally mandatory across the entirety of British Columbia, but there are some places particularly in mountainous areas where winter tires are also required.

Although Canada is one of the coldest countries in the world, it is surprising that winter tires are not required by law. In Germany, the rules regarding winter tires have recently been tightened and Germans know that they should ideally have winter tires on from October to Easter. If they are caught without them and there is snow or ice, or if they are involved in an accident, they have to pay a special fine.

How to purchase extended auto warranty

How to purchase extended auto warrantyHow to purchase extended auto warranty

Traditionally, extended auto warranty was only available for purchase from the dealership. Products such as extended auto warranty and gap insurance are discussed particularly in the finance office once you have decided to go ahead and purchase your vehicle. However, how to purchase extended auto warranty has changed in Canada as Obvi has brought the process online meaning a fairer price for customers. Here we explain the differences between buying from the dealership and going direct online.

Buying from the dealership

There are several things to think about when being offered extended warranty at the dealership. This can be an expensive method of purchasing extended warranty coverage because of the layers of commissions built in. It is also important to consider who the actual warranty provider is. Is your dealership the one who will be approving any warranty claims? In almost all cases it isn’t.

It might also be suggested in the finance office that extended warranty is rolled into your monthly payments. This can hide the total cost of the warranty and mean you are not paying a fair price. There is nothing wrong with paying in monthly installments as long as you have clearly seen the total price first and then you can decide if you want to pay it upfront or monthly. Without the total price, it can be confusing and unclear, and you could end up paying more than you expected.

Buying online

Instead of going through the dealer, you can now go online direct with Obvi.ca.

Buying extended auto warranty online means several things; you can take time to do your research, you don’t have sales pressure because you can do it online from home, and you get a fairer price by cutting out multiple layers of sales commission. Obvi understands that consumers deserve a fair price, and they also deserve to understand exactly what they are paying for, which is why we strive to be transparent and have an easy-to-understand, simply worded policy.

How is buying online different?

Although you might be told otherwise at the dealership, buying online is not any different in terms of customer service. In fact, Obvi’s excellent customer service stands out as a cut above other providers and you can speak to an expert via our online chat, by giving us a call or sending us an email. By going online with Obvi, not only has how to purchase extended auto warranty improved, but you can also be reassured that we will be with you for the entire purchase to claim process.

Extended Car Warranty What Does It Cover

extended warranty what does it cover

Extended Car Warranty – what does it cover?

What is extended car warranty and what does it cover are some of the most common questions we are asked here at Obvi. Been given a detailed policy but still don’t know what the small print means? We’ve had the same experience. That’s why we decided to completely change the way that extended warranty and gap insurance were sold in Western Canada, making the process better for Canadian consumers.

At Obvi, we understand that it can be confusing to sift through pages and pages of policy information with complicated jargon, when all you really want is the facts written in the clearest possible way. That’s why Obvi has a no jargon policy written in simple terms, and an easy to understand exclusion list; if it’s not excluded, it’s included.

What is extended car warranty?

When you purchase a new vehicle, it will come with a manufacturer’s warranty which typically lasts for between 3-5 years. Extended car warranty is something you can choose whether to purchase or not, and can come in different forms, see previous blog explaining the differences.

The main reason why people buy extended warranty is so that they save money and don’t have to worry about sudden expensive car repairs. For some drivers, having large car repair bills can be too much of a strain on their finances. For others, they just want to save money and have peace of mind in knowing that they are covered.

Extended car warranty: what does it cover?

Depending on where you purchase your extended warranty from, the policy may slightly vary with what is included or excluded.

The main components that Obvi covers are;

  • Engine
  • Transmission
  • Steering
  • Drive Axles
  • Suspension
  • Brakes
  • Heating / Cooling
  • High-tech
  • Electrical

Guest Blog: Factors to Consider When Buying a Used Car

Factors to Consider When Buying a Used Car

A pre-owned vehicle can be a smart option when you want to purchase a decent ride without breaking the bank. New vehicles depreciate very quickly; according to wheels.ca, in the first few years of ownership, it can be more than a dollar an hour that gets pumped out of the car. 

Factors to Consider When Buying a Used Car

While used cars are a sensible option, there are still many things you need to consider before making a decision. The process can be confusing and stressful at times. Fortunately, you don’t need to be a car expert to get a good deal. Here’s what to pay attention to when buying a used vehicle.

The History of the Vehicle

One of the first steps of buying a used vehicle is learning its history. When purchasing a c, the dealer or owner may not provide you with all the information about the car. A VIN(vehicle identification number) check uncovers critical details about the car’s past and enables you to spot any red flags. 

A full VIN report helps you to know whether the vehicle has been involved in any accidents, has ever been extensively damaged, has a junk title, has changed hands many times before or it was recently recalled due to safety issues. The information revealed by a VIN check has the potential to sway your purchasing decision. Sites like VINCheck.info offer free, fast, and reliable online VIN lookup services.

The Exterior and Interior Condition

The outward appearance of a vehicle can tell you much about its condition. To get the perfect view, park the car on level ground. This will help you to see whether all parts are even and no side is sagging. On the exterior, start by inspecting the paint for dents and bends as they may indicate traumas that the car has previously suffered. Also check the tires, trunk, the exhaust, and the hood for signs of rust or any form of damage.

The next step is to check the interior of the vehicle. Sit on the driver’s seat and look at all dashboard components to ensure they are functioning. Also, ensure all the seats are adjustable. Check around for tears on the upholstery, and test the air conditioning, lights, wipers, and signals. To further protect yourself, bring along a certified mechanic to check whether the car is mechanically sound, as noted in The Guardian.    

The Results of a Test Drive

If the exterior and interior of the car are perfect, the next step is to go for a test drive. If possible, do the test drive in conditions that reflect those of your day-to-day driving. Preferably a busy road where you can test all the vehicle’s components in a real-life situation. Take note of how long the car takes to start, the effectiveness of the brakes, strange noises, vibrations, burning smells, and how the car responds to different actions. 

The Warranty

Factors to Consider When Buying a Used CarSome drivers view pre-owned cars as unpredictable, and decide they would like an extended  warranty in case they have car repairs. It helps lighten future financial burdens when your vehicle needs repair, as noted in a Forbes article. Find out more about extended warranty online in Canada with Obvi or get an instant quote

Final Thoughts

When scouting for a pre-owned vehicle, it’s essential you take your time and equip yourself with the right information. Start by checking the car’s history, performing a detailed inspection, and taking a test drive. These steps will help you decide whether to pull off with the deal, negotiate, or walk away.

Best GAP Insurance Canada

best GAP insurance canada

Best GAP Insurance Canada

You may have heard of products such as GAP insurance or extended auto warranty the last time you purchased a vehicle or insurance. However, if you don’t deal with them frequently it can be confusing understanding how the coverage works and what options are available.

GAP (short for guaranteed asset protection) insurance pays the difference between your remaining car loan balance and the settlement amount (the “gap”) from your auto insurance provider if your vehicle is considered a write off. Long-term loans, elevated interest rates, high vehicle prices, and negative equity rollovers mean most vehicle owners carry a loan much higher than the value of their car, truck, or SUV.

GAP insurance is often sold at the car dealership when you are purchasing a vehicle. You can make a one-off payment or it is more likely that you are encouraged to roll GAP insurance into your monthly payments. Obvi.ca has made GAP insurance available for online purchase in Western Canada, which is why we think Obvi has the best GAP insurance in Canada.

What are some negatives of how GAP insurance is traditionally sold?

Confusing policies – Some policies are difficult to read, with deliberately complicated terminology, misleading marketing, and complicated clauses. Obvi has tried hard to create easy-to-understand policies written in simple English so you aren’t left confused.

High price – Buying from the dealership can be expensive. Obvi cuts out the middleman meaning no dealer commission. Going direct online with Obvi also means you can avoid the difficult sales process. Obvi policies are priced fairly, and you save money.

Rolling into monthly payments – there is nothing wrong with paying monthly (Obvi now offers a 36 month payment plan). However, if you are encouraged to roll gap insurance into your monthly vehicle payments and are NOT given the total cost, then you can end up paying much more than you first realized. Obvi has simple and transparent prices so you can always see the total cost.

Obvi – the best GAP insurance in Canada

Obvi is disrupting the market in Canada by bringing GAP insurance online and in doing so, saving Canadians money. Why is going online with Obvi good for consumers?

  • Purchasing online rather than at the dealership means you can take your time to research and think about your purchase. There is also no sales pressure online so you don’t feel pushed into a decision.
  • You’re busy, why would you want to spend time calling people for quotes, or even going in person to an office? Everything can be done online in minutes, and if you have questions, our live agents are there to help.
  • By going direct, the extra layers of sales commissions can be removed saving you money.
  • With going online, you can review the reputation of the company issuing the policy.

Popular European cars you don’t see in Canada

peugeot 208Popular European cars you don’t see in Canada

Here in Canada, we love our big vehicles; Ford F-series, Chevrolet Silverado, Toyota Rav4, GMC Sierra, Ram 1500 and more. But our European counterparts don’t share the same view of larger vehicles as we do. With space a serious issue in many European cities, smaller vehicles are easier and more practical on a day-to-day basis. So what cars are popular in Europe that aren’t so popular here, or that we don’t have at all? Here is our top list (data taken from best-selling-cars.com):

Volkswagen Polo

Nearly 300,000 VW Polos were sold in Europe in 2018 compared to…. 0 in Canada. Although the VW Golf is sold here, the Polo is not available in North America. Volkswagen have talked about the possibility of bringing the Polo over in the past, but it looks like there will be no change on that front in the near future.

volkswagen poloSkoda Octavia

Although the Octavia is a popular choice in Eastern Europe (223,352 sold in Europe in 2018), Skoda currently does not sell vehicles in North America. Again, there have been rumors about this changing, particularly if car sales continue to slow in Eastern Europe, but nothing concrete yet.

Ford Fiesta and Ford Focus

The Fiesta and Focus are currently available in Canada, but their sales here are nowhere near as impressive as Europe with around 476,000 sold there last year. In fact, Ford announced in 2018 that they are dropping the Fiesta, Focus, Fusion and Taurus in North America as of 2020 in order to focus purely on trucks and SUVs.

ford focusPeugeot 208

The most popular Peugeot model has to be the 208 and 230,049 were sold in Europe in 2018. It was reported last year that Peugeot and Citroën were thinking of selling their cars back in Canada within the next 8-10 years, but with that goal so far away, it’s hard to tell whether it will actually happen.

Renault Clio

The Renault Clio outsold the Peugeot 208 in 2018 with 336,268 models sold. The Renault Clio and Peugeot 208 are, of course, the two top selling vehicles in France but unlike Peugeot, Renault has made it clear that they have no desire to come back to the North American market.

renault clioFiat 500 & Smart Car

Although we do have these two tiny cars in Canada, they are nowhere near as popular here as they are in Europe.  In fact, the Smart Car will soon be disappearing from the North American market altogether. The micro-car market has been declining in North America, and larger vehicles such as SUVs have been dominating the market meaning that the Fiat 500 is also in danger of leaving North America.

Obvi’s Top 5 Road Trips in Western Canada

obviroadtripObvi’s Top 5 Road Trips in Western Canada

As a Calgary based company, we love getting out of the city on road trips! When we’re not working hard you can often find our team in the mountains biking, hiking, or relaxing at one of the hot springs. Looking for some inspiration for your next road trip? Here are Obvi’s Top 5 Road Trips in Western Canada.

Icefields Parkway

The Icefields Parkway is considered one of the best drives in the world and connects Banff to Jasper. There are plenty of places to stop off on the way from lakes to glaciers and waterfalls. Our favorite things to see are turquoise Peyto Lake (you can get the best view from Bow Summit) and the glaciers at Columbia Icefields.

peyto lake

Peyto Lake

Sea to Sky Highway

Connecting Vancouver to Whistler, the Sea to Sky Highway is spectacular. Driving straight through takes about 1.5 – 2 hours, but there are plenty of awesome things to see and do on the way. One of the coolest things is the gondola connecting Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. The route is 4.4km long and over 400m above the ground, and although it’s not guaranteed there are often sightings of numerous bears below you.

Vancouver Island

A trip to Vancouver wouldn’t be complete if you didn’t go to Vancouver Island, and a road trip is a brilliant way to explore and see what the island has to offer. For the most epic trip, spend a week or so on the island and follow the Heritage Discovery Circle Route on the East Coast from Victoria to Port Hardy. Explore everything in-between and with plenty of opportunities to enjoy nature and see wildlife, you’ll have a great time.

Trans-Canada Highway

The Trans-Canada Highway is a ridiculously long road running all the way across Canada, but our favorite part is between Lake Louise and Banff.  Coming from Calgary, we like to start in Banff and make our way slowly to Lake Louise, stopping off on the way to enjoy the scenery.

Once there, you can do a hike from Lake Louise to Lake Agnes Tea House (open from June to October) and enjoy the breath-taking view. Return back along the Trans-Canada highway and spend some time in Banff – maybe even head up Sulphur Mountain if you’re feeling adventurous or if you’re looking to chill, take a dip in the hot springs.

lake louise

Lake Louise

Drumheller and the Badlands

Drumheller is famous for the Royal Tyrell Museum of Paleontology, about 135km away from Calgary. The area around Drumheller, Dinosaur Provincial Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) is the richest place in the world in terms of dinosaur fossils, and this museum has a humongous collection. In fact, most of the 130,000+ fossils aren’t even on display and are behind the scenes, meaning that paleontologists from all over the world come to Drumheller to see specific fossils.

But another great thing about Drumheller is the Badlands; this spectacular area where the dinosaurs used to roam is an awesome destination when on a road trip. The hoodoos (a certain geological structure) seem unreal, and it’s an amazing place to explore and take photos.

Where to buy extended warranty for a used car?

buy warranty for used carWhere to buy extended warranty for a used car?

Have a used car? Thinking about purchasing one but not sure where to buy the warranty for your used car? You have a few options for buying an extended warranty for a used car in Western Canada.

  • Buying from the dealership

When you purchase a vehicle from the dealership, you are likely to be offered extended warranty (or even Gap Insurance). There are several things to consider when being offered extended warranty at the dealership. This can be an expensive way of buying extended warranty coverage for your used car because of the layers of commissions built in. You should also consider who the actual warranty provider is. You may like your dealership but is that who will be approving any warranty claims? In most cases it isn’t.

Should I buy a warranty for my used car?

There are several things you might want to think about when deciding whether to buy extended warranty for your used car.

1) How old is your vehicle?

Manufacturer’s warranties generally cover the first 3 – 5 years of a vehicle’s life so you will want to check your make and model’s coverage out first. Not every vehicle on the road is eligible for extended warranty when it is used so be sure to check the various coverage options available.

 2) Is your car used?

Used cars are more affordable to purchase but you may not know how the previous owner treated the vehicle. For example, was the vehicle always properly maintained? What kind of a driver were they? You may find extended warranty is worth it because you cannot predict when you might need expensive car repairs and if the price and coverage are reasonable you can be covered for a long time.

 3) Do you worry about the cost of car repairs?

The cost of car repairs can be a big issue and having a sudden and unexpected bill could put you in a difficult financial situation. If this is a concern, then an extended warranty policy might be for you.

Canadian Insurance Market

Canadian Insurance Market

It’s moving online incredibly fast

As we have already seen in Banking and Investing, technological advancements for Insurance are reaping huge rewards for customers. Recent advertising efforts by State Farm and Insurance Brokers Association of Canada (IBAC) are clear indicators that online insurance options in Canada are gaining market share every month. State Farm recently launched a high-profile commercial with professional athletes and a famous actor to promote their personal touch, as online offerings powered by bots are gaining market share every day.  The IBAC started a campaign warning Canadians about purchasing insurance online and launched www.beforethequote.ca, advising to go directly to insurance brokers rather than online.

We can credit State Farm for the humorous advert and focusing on the personal touch aspect that some customers might appreciate. The IBAC has taken a different approach of provoking uncertainty and fear, the long-time insurance sales tactic, in the hope of preventing Canadians from looking online for insurance.

Billions of dollars have been invested globally into bringing insurance online with a huge focus on improving the customers experience, so we want to look deeper into the IBAC’s message and see what’s going on;

  1. Advocacy or My broker shops for me. While they can and should be, the reality is that most Canadians receive their home, auto, boat, trailer and other renewals directly from insurance companies and not from the broker. You are likely paying direct to the insurer and the renewals come direct from them too.
  2. My policy is customized.  The customization of insurance occurs long before the quote as insurers themselves have created off the shelf custom packages for home, business and auto insurance.  Insurance companies have worked hard to develop leading packages and this has resulted in very simple policies that are only subject to a relatively standard list of exclusions. The final touch to customize a policy is to ask good questions about the client, be it for business or personal insurance, which can be accomplished with online systems very easily and much more efficiently.
  3. Online insurers don’t pay claims. Online insurance is simply a different division of the same insurance company you might already be dealing with. Claims handling and behaviour from these insurance companies are going to be consistent with both channels. Buying online is not any less reliable, and it certainly does not mean that your claim won’t be paid.
  4. Online insurance is without expert advice. Online insurance industry leaders like Obvi Inc. and Zensurance have something important in common; they are brokers who provide expert advice. Customers still have access to live insurance agents or brokers who can provide guidance throughout the entire online process.  With an online chat, a customer can also ask for a transcript of the conversation to document any advice received that influenced their decisions.
  5. Lower premiums equal less coverage. It is very common for one insurer to offer the same coverage at a lower rate than another insurer. What makes the online world more competitive is how efficiently products can go to market and how claims are opened and tracked which can create substantial savings for customers. Just because insurance is cheaper online, doesn’t mean it isn’t as good if not better.

Are some people still renewing insurance in person? Maybe. Does this mean you have to buy insurance online? Not at all, but the online world is everything the traditional market fears.  It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s convenient and gives consumers the ability to effectively manage a very important product which happens to be a noticeable household expense. What kind of insurance is available online? Here are your options:

  • Home Insurance
  • Auto Insurance
  • Extended Warranty for your vehicle
  • PET Insurance
  • GAP insurance
  • Personal Umbrella
  • Life Insurance
  • Small and medium size business Insurance
  • Travel Insurance

Canada should be excited about online innovators that have re-imagined the insurance industry and the benefits available. The online insurance world is starting to open up in Canada, and it’s something to embrace rather than fear.

Why Would I Want An Extended Auto Warranty?

Why would I want an Extended Auto Warranty? 5 Reasons for purchasing one

We often focus on explaining why you shouldn’t be overpaying for an Extended Auto Warranty from a dealer, but why would you want an Extended Auto Warranty at all? Here are 5 reasons that we keep talking about here in the Obvi office;

1 – You could save thousands

When something goes wrong with your car, it’s really annoying – you suddenly realize how dependent you are on it! But what makes it worse is how much it could cost to get your car, and your lifestyle, back up and running.

Car repairs are not cheap, and if something goes really wrong and you aren’t covered, you may have to suddenly pay thousands to foot the bill. What happens if you suddenly need a new transmission or expensive electronic component – would you have around $4 – 5,000 or more ready and waiting? This can really add up over time too if you have multiple claims.

2 – Claims

It’s common to think that you can only make one claim, but this isn’t always true –  you can often make as many claims as you have too throughout the lifetime of your policy within your per claim and gross policy limits. This is true with an Obvi warranty.

We sometimes hear people concerned about per claim maximums; A whole engine replacement for a domestic car averages under $9,000, and its rarely the case that your entire engine and all of its components fail. The vast majority of failed component repairs cost under $3,000. If you own a very high-end luxury vehicle, major repairs can cost significantly more so you should be sure to understand what can go wrong with the vehicle and what coverages are available.

3 – Less financial worry

Instead of worrying about that potential huge car repair bill and whether you have enough money to cover it, you can sleep easy. If something goes wrong, you are covered. It’s important to do your due diligence to ensure this is the case. Make sure to understand your coverage before you buy, have someone at the provider explain the whole process, and shop around to compare coverage and prices so you don’t fall for a good sales pitch. Excellent customer service and a quick & easy claims process are important.

4 – No one-time component rule

Some warranties have a clause that you can only claim a component once throughout the life of your contract or policy. Obvi makes it clear that there is no one-time component rule per policy. If the air conditioning breaks, you get it fixed and then it breaks again at a later date, you are covered each time. This should be the case with any Extended Auto Warranty policy, but there is sometimes confusion and this is not made explicitly clear.

5 – Resale Value/Keeping it longer

Letting go of your vehicle can sometimes be stressful and difficult. You want to get the most out of the money you have already put into it. With an Extended Warranty, you can keep your vehicle longer without having to worry about expensive unexpected repairs that can come when it gets older. And if you decide to sell it or trade it in, you can get a much better price for a car that has a warranty than one that doesn’t.

It’s no longer the case that an Extended Auto Warranty is extremely expensive, and therefore not worth it. By bringing Extended Auto Warranty online and cutting out the middleman, Obvi’s Extended Warranty is a fair price, and doesn’t mean you are breaking the bank. In the event of repairs, you really could end up saving thousands by Obvi covering the repair bill.

To conclude; why would I want an Extended Auto Warranty? Save money, less worries, excellent coverage, and higher resale value. Simple!
