  1. What do you mean by “Guaranteed Savings?”

    By working with one of the dealers referred through Kijiji New Cars, you are guaranteed to be able to work towards a price better than the stated Average Price of the vehicle. The dealers you are referred to are part of the Unhaggle dealer network and understand you are in possession of average pricing information. Therefore, to win your business they will do everything in their power to give you the best deal possible!

  2. What is Average Price?

    Average Price is a proprietary estimate by Unhaggle of what others have paid for the same vehicle you configured based on actual sales data from your local area. It is a great point of reference to understand the size of discount that average consumers have received. Kijiji New Cars will connect you with local dealers that can offer even better deals.

  3. How is Average Price data collected?

    Unhaggle collects, processes, and validates data from a wide range of primary and secondary sources which include other reputable data aggregators in the automotive industry. Our data is recognized to be market leading for timeliness, comprehensiveness, and accuracy. As such, our data is used by or featured in seven of the top ten automotive sites in Canada by traffic.

  4. How can I purchase my vehicle for the listed Average Price?

    The first step is to access the Average Price Report, and be referred to a local dealership. When the dealership reaches out to you shortly thereafter, you can begin the process of working towards this price (or do even better!). Remember that it is still a negotiation process, but having an average price benchmark puts you in a much stronger negotiating position!

  5. How much lower than Average Price can I get?

    Remember that the price displayed is the Average Price, which means that it includes those people who have done better than this price, and others who have done worse. Use the Average Price as a benchmark – this is the price you want to beat!

    Exactly how much lower than average you can achieve will depend on the research you do, the supply and demand of the vehicle you want, and your personal negotiating skills. We aim to give you the tools you need to succeed by providing the Average Price Report, local dealer referral, and payment calculator.

  6. What if I want to lease my vehicle?

    Leasing your vehicle will follow a similar process as cash or finance deals. You can find all applicable leasing rates and incentives in the Average Price Report. Further, the goal is still the same – to achieve better than the discount for average pricing. While we do not provide a lease calculator at this time, you can still work with the dealership listed to get an excellent price on your new vehicle.

  7. I cannot find the vehicle I am searching for.

    There are a few reasons this might be the case. First, check if the “Price Range” has been set appropriately. If you are unsure of the price of the vehicle, expand the range to its minimum and maximum.

    Cars Price Filter

    If you still cannot find your vehicle, your settings may be on a finance terms not offered by the vehicle’s manufacturer (e.g. the manufacturer may not support 84 months financing for the vehicle). Please select Cash to ensure you see all vehicles available.

    If you still cannot find the vehicle, ensure that you have not selected an incorrect filter category (Year and Make on the left filters and Vehicle Type on the top filter).

    Category Filter

    Finally, try using the “Configure a Vehicle” tool to find an exact match on your vehicle.

    If you still cannot find your vehicle, do not hesitate to contact us (see below) and we will do our best to direct you.

  8. What is included in the mandatory fees?

    Mandatory fees are usually made up of the following items, which are non-negotiable:

    • Freight and PDI: The most significant portion of mandatory fees, this covers what the manufacturer charges dealerships for transporting the vehicle. PDI (Pre-Delivery Inspection) is a standard fee that covers the preparation of the vehicle once it has arrived at the dealership.
    • Air Conditioning Tax: $100 (standard across the country)
    • Tire Levy: Government fee ranging from $20-$35
    • OMVIC / AMVIC fees: Regulatory fees applicable in Ontario ($5.00) and Alberta ($6.25)

  9. No Dealer is listed – what do I do now?

    If there is no recommended dealer listed in your area, there is still opportunity for you to negotiate a great price at your local dealer. Simply use the Average Price Report and the information within to ensure you are getting a fair deal. Aiming for better-than-average pricing is a great benchmark to ensure you are getting a great deal.

  10. How do incentives work?

    One type of incentive is a rebate. A rebate usually comes directly from the manufacturer and is intended to boost sales by lowering the price of the vehicle for everyone who makes a purchase. Rebates tend to be applied before tax, meaning you’ll end up paying tax on a lower amount. There are also after-tax rebates, meaning that you would apply the rebate after calculating tax. Rebates are specific to the purchase method and can be different for the same vehicles if paying by cash, finance or lease.

    Another common incentive involves rate reductions for finance or lease deals (e.g. 0% financing rates).

  11. What do you get in the Average Price Report?

    The Average Price Report includes a MSRP and Average Price breakdown of the vehicle, including: options, incentives, mandatory fees, sales tax and the drive-away price. Also included is the information of the dealer who will provide you with a quote, the finance monthly payment for every available term, and every finance and lease rate available.

  12. What if I don’t want a quote from a dealer?

    If you don’t want a quote from a dealer remember that the majority of the average pricing information is available without getting a quote. The benefit of getting the quote is that you will get a dealer’s best price and access to the payment calculator. Remember, our dealers work with customers just like you every day and want to make your experience as pleasant and hassle-free as possible.

  13. Why are there “added options” listed when I didn’t add anything?

    If you have not specifically selected any additional options, but still see items listed under the “Added Options” header, these options are simply standard features with the vehicle/trim you have selected. You can double check the Average Price Report to ensure they represent no additional cost.
