Used Car Satisfaction Guarantee - near Victoria and Nanaimo - Vancouver Island Used Cars


Here at Vancouver Island Used Cars, driving matters and so does your happiness with your vehicle purchase. This is why we have taken the expectation of purchasing a pre-owned used vehicle to another level in offering our Pre-Owned Used Vehicle Satisfaction Guarantee. Every used vehicle is eligible for the plan; if you decide within 30 days after purchase that it's just not right for you, bring it back!  No Hassle! No Worries! No Problem!

Every used Vehicle undergoes a 120-point inspection as part of our Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle Program. This is to ensure you that every Pre-Owned vehicle on our lot has been inspected with you and your family's safety in mind and meets the minimum required mechanical standards set out by the province of British Columbia.

Here's how it works:

  • You have 30 days from the original purchase date to exchange the vehicle
  • Vehicle must have less than 1,000 kilometers added since original purchase
