Luxury Car Dealers in the GTA



i'll be in the market soon for another car... this time i'm seriously going to consider buying a 1-2 yrs old vehicle instead of buying new...

any recommended shops in the GTA?... preferrably a place that has a good reputation for service as well

If you buy from a dealer, you also have to pay GST, which you don't pay on a private sale.

Here is a leasing company that usually has higher-end vehicles available off lease:

This is where I bought my car from. Prestige Toys, definately recommended! Even though my bimmer was used and 10 years old (it was a trade-in from someone who upgraded to an M5) they still gave me 1 year warranty on the car... ANYTHING that went wrong, they fixed. Window switch bulb died, they put in a new one. One of my rims got bent (see signature), they replaced it, had my tire put on and balanced, no charge! When I bought my car they paid to have it serviced at the dealer.. ball joints replaced, all fluids changed, new spark plugs, new control arms, etc. It was worth not going through a private sale just for the customer service, and to know that even if my used BMW has any problems, it will be fixed right away.. I knew I wasn't buying a lemon.

Oh yeah, and someone stole my turn signals and foglights... broke the foglight brackets. They replaced all that too.. no charge!

good point... somehting to take into serious consideration

to date i've only purchased new vehicles and although my current car is 8 yrs and going strong i think i'll likely go used on the next one. It just doesn't make too much sense to buy a new car especially when you're looking at a premium / luxury vehicle.

Private Sale is a good option but it could be a lengthy process. Will the premium I end up paying (incl. GST) if I buy from a dealer be more than the value of the time I put into it - that's what I have to investigate.

World Fine Cars is family friend bought their S500 from there, I like their service.

I've been to Prestige Toys, their cars are mostly European.

MVL on Queensway is pretty good too, a HS friend's dad owns it, they have good selection of luxury cars there.

I bought my Lexus from this place right off Dorval, **** I forgot the name, its right by Oakville MB, its a yellow building and they only sell luxury cars and they have their own leasing company, I give 'em three thumbs up, go in there and you'll see why I give 'em three thumbs up.

I doubt they'll remember me now, the gentleman I dealt with no longer works there, unfortunately. He opened up his own shop apparently... I think his name was Mo.

But definately go check them out, the service and piece of mind is worth it... especially nice when they don't hesitate to fix anything, and are always willing to help out. (unlike most dealerships, you have to hassle them to do the work.)
