In Canada, we’re pretty used to paying more than the price we see on a price tag. The Ontario government has implemented a sales tax known as HST (13%), which many of us are too familiar with. But when buying a new car there are some other fees you may not recognize. What these fees are called might vary from dealer to dealer, but most often they’ll be called “delivery and destination” or “freight and PDI.” So what exactlyt does that mean? What are these fees and why do you have to pay them?
Freight, or destination, is the charge for getting the vehicle from the factory to the dealership. This could involve shipping the vehicle from across an ocean, driving a vehicle across the country or packing something up a bit more delicately. Manufacturers set the freight price based on the nameplate for the vehicle, so no matter where you are, you’ll pay the same price. Most vehicles are not manufactured in Canada, so this set fee ensures that even if the vehicle is shipped from somewhere overseas like Japan, you’ll still pay the same price. These costs are also standard across the country, so someone in B.C. will be paying the same fee as someone in Ontario. This fee will usually be higher with bigger and more luxurious vehicles, as the cost to transport them will be much higher than a regular compact vehicle.
PDI (Pre-Delivery Inspection)
PDI, or delivery, is the charge for a technician at the dealership to inspect the car to make sure it has no cosmetic or mechanical issues from transportation. Just because a vehicle is brand new from the factory, doesn’t mean it’s ready for you to take home. It’s also for the wash crew to run the vehicle through the car wash and make sure the car is presentable for the new owner. It also includes any final touches the vehicle may need such as filling up the gas tank and topping up fluids.

Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) is a Volkswagen program that allows you piece of mind when buying a used vehicle. Each Certified Pre-Owned Volkswagen undergoes a rigorous inspection by our expert technicians. This detailed process helps reveal potential issues before they happen – using VW Original Parts for any repairs. CPO vehicles are also eligible for extended warranty coverage, giving you greater peace of mind. Before a Certified Pre-Owned Volkswagen becomes available, it undergoes a 112-point inspection. Whether it’s under the hood or inside the cabin – we check it. And if something needs replacing, we only use genuine Volkswagen Original Parts. For more information about CPO click HERE.

An open lease is for someone who wants a lower residual value or who is looking to lease and then buy their car. The lessee guarantees the residual value. Closed end leasing allows you to lease with a specific mileage allowance and return the car at the end of the lease if you at or under this mileage with no additional cost. You are responsible for excess wear and tear on a closed end lease.
We allow you to trade in your lease for a new or preowned vehicle. We also offer lease extensions or you may buyout your lease.
Leasing is just an alternative form of financing a vehicle. Instead of paying your loan to zero the residual value is set for the vehicle. This residual value usually reflects the future value based on a specific mileage. For example a lease will allow 24,000 km per year and the residual value will be set for this mileage. You then have the option at the end of the lease to buyout your lease, return it if it is under mileage or extend your lease till you buy it or trade it for a newer model.
You can trade in your owned, financed or leased vehicle against a new lease. Remember that if you have a finance or lease the trade value will need to cover paying out the vehicle. A fully owned vehicle will act as a down payment with the benefit of saving you the HST on its value. Any equity in a financed or leased vehicle will also act as a down payment toward your new lease.
If you would like to end your lease early our dealership can assist you with either buying out or trading in your lease. To do this, a buyout amount will be calculated, a buyout is simply what you owe on your lease. If your vehicle is worth more than you owe you can put that equity towards your next vehicle. If it is worth less than you owe will have to cover that shortfall by either paying the amount, or adding it to your next lease.
Every lease has a predetermined mileage allowance. You will be responsible for any mileage over your allowance. So always make sure you negotiate enough mileage to cover your driving habits. I t can be expensive to pay it at the end of the lease in one lump sum verses paying a little more each month on your lease.
You can lease a vehicle for as little as 12 months and as much as 60 months depending on your need and your budget.
You are required to have full insurance coverage on a lease, no different than a bank finance, this means liability, collision and comprehensive coverage.
Yes you can buy extra mileage up front, we allow for mileages up to 50,000 km per year. It is cheaper to pay them up front than at the end of the lease.
Yes you may be able to either refinance or release your lease.
