Black Friday and Cyber Monday Car-Shopping Tips

New Jeep Lineup | Chilliwack, BC

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are known for their deals. In fact, they’re some of the busiest retail shopping days of the year in Canada — and it’s a prime time to consider getting a new vehicle. If you’re interested in buying a car on Black Friday or Cyber Monday, make sure you follow these car-shopping tips.

Find the right deal for you. Dealerships will advertise their deals well in advance of these prime shopping days, so make sure you do your research beforehand. After all, you don’t want to miss out on your dream car because you didn’t realize it was on sale.

You can already check out some of the specials we will be offering on Black Friday at O’Connor Chrysler, and even take advantage of them now during our Black Friday Early Access Event:

Figure out your financing beforehand. You can usually get pre-approved for a loan, which allows you to breeze through the buying process. Make sure you do this, so you can get the deal you want. You should also check your credit score before you head to the dealership.

Be prepared for a crowd. Head to the dealership early, and don’t be surprised if there’s a bit of a crowd. With the frequent advertising leading up to the sale, you will likely see a lot of other people trying to get in on the savings.

Use O’Connor’s online deal-builder. You can easily find your dream car at O’Connor Chrysler Dodge Jeep® and Ram without leaving the comfort of your home. Simply build your deal online with us. You can choose your vehicle, extra accessories, and determine your monthly payment with ease — you can even complete your credit application online. It’s simple!

Vancouver International Auto Show Highlights: A Look Back

The Jeep® Gladiator’s Western Canadian Debut

2020 Jeep Gladiator |  Chilliwack, BC

Fiat Chrysler took the Vancouver show by storm last year with the debut of the all-new 2020 Jeep® Gladiator. Combining the utility of a pickup truck and the off-road capabilities of the Wrangler, the Gladiator comes ready to take on the unbeaten path ahead. It showed off its off-road readiness with its available 33-inch off-road tires, Dana 44 axles, Tru-Lock electric front- and rear-axle lockers, and more.

Performance-Ready Models from Mopar

During the show, you had the chance to feast your eyes on the wonders of Mopar. This exciting showcase had over 25 Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep®, and Ram models on display, highlighting how aftermarket parts can help make vehicles of all shapes and sizes that much better.

Test Driving the Chrysler Pacifica

2020 Chrylser Pacifica | Chilliwac, BC
