    Descriptive info: In Memoriam.. BOB BEATTIE.. Executive Director.. 1936 - 2012.. It is with great sadness that we advise members of the passing of our long time Executive Director and friend Bob Beattie.. Bob was a respected and influential figure in Ontario s motor vehicle sales industry.. Along with six other used car dealers, Bob founded the UCDA in 1984.. Since then, Bob has taken the Association from its humble beginnings and transformed it over the past 28 years into the single largest motor vehicle dealer association in North America.. He led the UCDA over three  ...   on behalf of Ontario motor vehicle dealers.. Bob ensured that the voice of the used vehicle industry was influential in development and implementation of industry self management in 1996 and the new Motor Vehicle Dealers Act regulations, which came into effect in 2010.. The importance of Bob Beattie to this Association, and the significance of his loss to Ontario s motor vehicle sales industry, cannot be overstated.. Bob will be sorely missed, but the association which he tirelessly built will carry on to continue his vision of enhancing the used vehicle industry in Ontario..

If there is limited space then the ad must at least include the word Dealer in the ad.. Used Vehicles.. If the vehicle advertised is not new and is the current or previous model year, the ad must specify that the vehicle is Used.. All-in Pricing.. Means, whether you advertise a vehicle price in print, on TV, radio, the internet or at your lot, the price must include all fees, charges or levies (like safety, e-test, admin.. fees, freight, pdi, pde) except HST and the cost of licencing which can be declared by saying in the ad tax and licencing extra.. As Is.. If you have a car that you do not plan to recondition, certify or e-test, and you don t want to guarantee it for a buyer, you may consider selling it as is.. When price advertising an as is vehicle, OMVIC says the ad must.. clearly.. state:.. This vehicle is being sold as is , unfit, not e-tested and is not represented.. as being in a road worthy condition, mechanically sound or maintained at any.. guaranteed level of quality.. The vehicle may not be fit for use as a means of.. transportation and may require substantial repairs at the purchaser s expense.. It.. may not be possible to register the vehicle to be driven in its current condition.. Dealers are still required to provide all the OMVIC disclosures on the sale of an as is vehicle.. Vehicles advertised without certification or e-test.. This is not the same as an as is sale.. , you would, for example, know at least enough about the vehicle to have a good idea what it will cost to certify and e-test and you will have responsibility for its quality and basic suitability as a means of transportation.. When advertising a vehicle for a price that does not include safety certification and/or e-testing, the ad  ...   as prominently as the advertised monthly, bi-weekly or weekly payments.. the term of the credit agreement.. the cash price of the vehicle.. the cost of borrowing..

  • Title:
    Descriptive info: Frequently Asked Questions about Status Indians and HST.. 1.. When is a sale or lease of a motor vehicle to a Status Indian exempt from HST?.. Status Indians, with a Certificate of Indian Status issued by the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs (INAC), (now known as Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada), are exempt from HST where they purchase or lease a vehicle and take delivery of the vehicle on a Reserve.. It does not matter whether they live on the Reserve.. So, vehicles sold or leased to a Status Indian and delivered to the Status Indian on a Reserve are exempt from the full 13% HST.. Delivery off Reserve.. Sales or leases to Status Indians with delivery off Reserve will be exempt at the point of sale from the 8% provincial portion of HST, meaning that dealers should charge only 5% GST if the Status Indian takes delivery off-Reserve.. 2.. What if a Status Indian purchases parts from a dealer?.. The same rules as in Question 1 apply.. Parts sold and delivered to a Status Indian on Reserve are fully exempt from HST.. Parts sold to a Status Indian will be exempt from the 8% provincial portion of HST and subject only to 5% GST.. 3.. What if a Status Indian has repairs performed at a dealer?.. Repairs performed for a Status Indian at a dealership are subject only to 5% GST.. 4.. Other than a Certificate of Indian Status Card, are any other cards or identification acceptable as proof of Indian Status?.. The Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada issues a Temporary Confirmation of Registration Document to individuals who have been newly registered as Status Indians.. The  ...   be asked for documentation as evidence that the Status Indian took delivery on a Reserve.. The UCDA recommends that you:.. Purchase something such as gas on a Reserve and get a dated receipt, showing the date and address.. Take a photo of the vehicle beside a recognizable landmark on the Reserve, such as a store, the band office or Reserve sign.. Log the distance driven between the dealership and the Reserve address.. 6.. How can I confirm that an address is a Reserve address?.. You can search Reserves by name on the internet.. here.. or call the UCDA for assistance.. 7.. What if two people are buying or leasing a vehicle, but only one is a Status Indian?.. This often arises because the transaction involves financing or credit and the Status Indian has to have a co-signor (often his or her spouse who may not be a Status Indian) sign the contract.. If a Status Indian is the primary purchaser or lessee on the contract, the transaction is exempt from HST as long as the vehicle is delivered to the purchaser or lessee on a Reserve.. It doesn t matter whether the co-signer s name is shown on the registration or not.. Where a vehicle is registered, showing both a Status Indian and non-Status person as co-registrants, the transaction is HST exempt, as long as the Status Indian is also shown as the purchaser on the bill of sale and takes delivery on Reserve.. 8.. Do the registration and delivery exemptions also apply to ATV s, snowmobiles and non-motorized vehicles, such as trailers?.. Yes, these rules apply to any type of vehicle, equipment or machinery sold to a Status Indian..

  • Title:
    Descriptive info: Vehicles sold to Status Indian purchasers who take delivery at the dealer s premises ( Off-Reserve ) are exempt from the 8% provincial portion of the HST.. meaning the dealer should only collect and remit 5% tax on the sale.. However, dealers.. must report the full amount of HST that would normally be collected (13%) on Line 105 of their HST remittance form.. The 8% provincial portion of the HST that was not charged to the Status Indian should be shown on Line 111 (the Rebates line) and this amount should then be subtracted from the Net Tax on Line 109 to show the balance owing on Line 113.. Here s a simplified example of how this would show on a remittance form.. For the purposes of this example, the sale of one vehicle for $10,000 is shown.. For simplicity, no Input Tax Credits (ITCs) are shown in the example.. Normally, ITCs would be deducted  ...   do not file electronically using NETFILE, must also complete the appropriate sections of CRA Form 189 (Rebate Form) to show the amount of the rebate from Line 111 and send this form in with their remittance.. Form 189 can be found at.. http://www.. cra-arc.. gc.. ca/E/pbg/gf/gst189/gst189-12e.. Dealers should check off the box for Code 23 in Part B of the Form and complete Parts A, C (Section II only) and E.. It is important to note that dealers will remit only the amount of HST collected (5% of the sale price).. CRA will not actually issue a rebate.. However, CRA expects dealers to complete remittance forms this way.. Failure to do so could lead to penalties being charged, to a maximum of 10% of the misreported amount.. This process does not apply to vehicles sold and.. delivered.. to a Status Indian on a Reserve.. No HST is charged and none is reported in that case..

  • Title:
    Descriptive info: Drive Clean Best Practices for Used Car Dealers.. Used car dealers in Southern Ontario have been familiar with Drive Clean for over a decade.. All used vehicles require a Drive Clean Pass report before the new owner can obtain licence plates.. This ensures that the purchased vehicle is free from emissions defects.. It s the Law.. The Environmental Protection Act prohibits the seller from providing a vehicle with faulty emissions controls to an unwary buyer.. What is new with Drive Clean?.. Beginning January 1, 2013, there will be a new emissions inspection procedure for most cars, vans, SUVs and light trucks.. Ontario will be joining the other North American emissions inspection programs by requiring vehicles to be inspected with the.. on-board.. diagnostics test procedure.. OBD stands for.. On-Board.. Diagnostics II.. Model year 1998 and newer cars, vans, SUVs and light trucks, are equipped with.. diagnostics (OBD) computers that constantly check the emissions control systems to ensure they are working properly.. The OBD system detects problems well before symptoms such as poor performance, high emissions or poor fuel economy are recognized by the driver.. The OBD system monitors emissions controls every time a vehicle is operated and even when it is parked.. The old dynamometer and tailpipe test measured emissions only at a particular speed, load and moment in time.. Quick.. E-Check.. for.. Trade-in.. and Auctioned Vehicles.. Before accepting a vehicle for resale - do a quick emissions check.. Plug a portable scan tool into the vehicle s Diagnostic Link.. Connector (DLC) to download all DTCs and check for Readiness:.. A vehicle that reports no Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) and all supported monitors are Ready will mostly likely pass its Drive Clean inspection.. If DTCs are found or one or more monitors are Not Ready the vehicle will require repairs before it can be fit for resale.. The new Drive Clean OBD Emissions Inspection.. The new Drive Clean emissions test for OBD equipped vehicles will ask for emissions control system results directly from the vehicle s OBD computer.. Only older,.. pre-OBD,.. vehicles will receive a tailpipe exhaust gas inspection.. Pre-OBD.. passenger cars and light trucks.. (1988-1997).. will be tested for tailpipe emissions by the Two Speed Idle (gasoline) or visual smoke (diesel) tests.. Heavy SUVs and pickup trucks.. (1988-2006).. with GVWRs greater.. than 3856 kg are.. pre-OBD.. vehicles.. Heavy SUVs and pickup trucks (2007 and newer) with GVWR 3856 kg to 4,500 kg are OBD capable vehicles and will be tested by OBD.. Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL).. When an emissions problem is detected on an OBD equipped vehicle, an instrument panel warning light called a Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) turns on to alert the driver.. On some vehicles it will appear as a yellow engine symbol, CHECK ENGINE or SERVICE ENGINE SOON alert.. Most vehicles use the following symbols to represent the MIL:.. The purpose of the MIL is to warn the driver of an emissions related problem that needs to be repaired.. During normal operation, the MIL will turn on for a few seconds when the engine is first started and turn off when the engine is running.. If the MIL remains on, the OBD system is warning the driver that it has detected an emissions control system problem.. The OBD system will automatically turn off the MIL if the issue(s) that caused the problem are no longer detected.. This will happen when the OBD system checks a component or system three consecutive times and no longer detects the initial problem.. For example, if a gas cap was not properly tightened after refuelling, the OBD system detects an evaporative leak and turns on the MIL.. Once the gas cap is.. tightened, the OBD system will recognize this and the MIL will be turned off after a few days of normal driving.. If the Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) is on during the Drive Clean emissions test, the result will likely be a FAIL.. A vehicle with a MIL on has an emissions control system problem.. It must be repaired before it can successfully pass a.. Drive Clean retest.. Systems Monitored and Status.. The Drive Clean test Vehicle Inspection Report (VIR) includes a table of the.. Systems Monitored and their Status.. A vehicle s OBD computer checks emissions systems performance by monitoring data from the engine, transmission, fuel system, and emissions controls.. Up to eleven (11) monitors.. (software routines) check these major systems and components under specific operating conditions.. There are three (3) continuous monitors  ...   completed their checks), the vehicle will fail its Drive Clean emissions test.. A few days of combined city and highway driving, will normally allow the OBD monitors to run and become Ready.. Most vehicles with no emissions control system problems can become Ready within minutes of normal driving.. Vehicles with emissions control system issues will take longer to become Ready.. Once Ready , there may be an emissions problem that turns the MIL on and fails the Drive Clean emissions test.. Here is a generic drive cycle that should allow most vehicles OBD system to become Ready :.. Step 1: Make sure the vehicle has been parked for eight hours without a start.. Step 2: Start the engine and let it idle in Drive for.. two-and-a-half.. minutes with the Air Conditioning (A/C) and rear defroster on.. Step 3: Turn the A/C and rear defroster off.. Drive the vehicle for 10 minutes at highway speeds.. Step 4: Drive the vehicle for 20 minutes in.. stop-and-go.. traffic.. Step 5: The drive cycle is complete.. For the generic drive cycle to work the gas tank should be ¼ to ¾ full and the vehicle must be driven smoothly and avoid rapid acceleration.. Readiness Tips.. Check the thermostat operation (e.. stuck open), fuses, battery connections and wiring to the.. computer.. Inefficient aftermarket catalytic converters may not allow the catalyst monitor to become Ready.. Check Technical Service Bulletins (TSB) for OBD computer problems that can be fixed by a PCM reflash.. Use an automotive memory saver when replacing or disconnecting a battery during service to retain the OBD information rather than erasing it.. These tools are relatively cheap and can be found at almost any automotive parts suppliers outlets.. So How do you Keep a Vehicle Ready?.. A vehicle with all its monitors Ready can stay Ready while sitting on your lot, by keeping the on board computers energized.. To prevent the memory from being erased take the following precautions:.. Ensure car batteries are never discharged below or disconnected,.. Regularly charge batteries especially in winter,.. Load test and replace weak batteries.. The voltage sag during cranking may clear the monitors or prevent an emissions inspection from completing causing it to be rejected,.. Do not clear codes when performing maintenance on a vehicle, and,.. When replacing or disconnecting a car battery, use an automotive Memory Saver device plugged into the Diagnostic Link Connector.. (DLC).. Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC.. ).. When a vehicle s OBD system detects an emissions related malfunction, a.. Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) is stored in the.. computer and the.. Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) on the instrument panel lights up.. There is something wrong with the vehicle s emissions control system and it needs to be repaired.. The Vehicle Inspection Report (VIR) is not a diagnostic analysis.. The DTC on the VIR indicates the general area of the emissions failure and will help a repair technician determine the appropriate repairs.. The DTC does not provide the motorist or the repair technician with everything needed to repair the malfunction.. Aimlessly replacing parts in an attempt to remove a DTC is ineffective and potentially expensive.. For example, an O2 sensor related DTC could be the result of an exhaust leak upstream of the O2 sensor.. In this case, replacing a properly functioning O2 sensor will not fix this problem.. A good repair technician will follow the vehicle manufacturer s recommended diagnostic practices and procedures to determine and repair the specific source of the DTC problem.. A transmission problem can be directly related to the emissions control system and can turn the MIL on.. Transmission malfunctions can prevent a vehicle from running efficiently, increasing emissions above OBD standards.. Communication.. All OBD equipped vehicles have a standardized Diagnostic Link Connector (DLC) that the Ontario Test Unit (OTU) uses to obtain OBD data.. Failure to Communicate.. If the vehicle s OBD systems cannot provide data to the OTU, the emissions test result will be a Fail for communication.. Two of the most common causes of communication failures are damaged DLCs or improper wiring for an aftermarket installed device like a CD player, satellite radio, navigation system or security system.. Ensure the aftermarket device is not attached to, interfering with or drawing power from the DLC, or otherwise affecting the vehicle s computer or electrical system.. Drive Clean Inspectors will reject a vehicle from testing if there is anything attached to the DLC or if the DLC appears to have been tampered with..
