Default Why Quebec STIs so Cheap

I ve been looking to buy a STI,
And I looked on autotrader.ca
seems like the cheapest STI's are in Quebec.

Anyone know the reason why they are cheaper there?

I think Quebec drivers are really aggressive IMO. And doesn't Quebec have a auto theft problem?

Every car is cheaper in Quebec, not just Subies.

Premature rust is the answer you're really looking for.

That's the only answer that gets close to your question...

the main reason for the low STI prices in Quebec is that there are many repair shops that buy wrecked cars and rebuild them... Some of them are good, others...

You think the rust problem is enormous in quebec... go live in N-S...

Very true. The closer to the water, the worst it gets for rust.

Quebec has a lot of shady dealers. I just purchased my vehicle from Quebec but I was very careful who I bought from, and also drove 3 hours to get a good clean vehicle.

Most of the really cheap ones are salvage titles from the states. These are bad and stay away from them.

Default Quebec ?

I just bought a salvage title car from Quebec and I am very happy with it.
The car was bought sight unseen and shipped to me. It was exactly what they represented it was ; an 04 with 13,000 miles, with only cosmetic damage. The car is mint motor and drive train; and by the carpet wear it was lady driven and I don't think it was winter driven. A 2 yer old car with 13,000 miles !

If I wanted to go basic ;this car could be on the road for less $17,000.

thats cool fool !'
thanks for pointing that out
That indicates to me even more that this car was bought for
someones "old lady" and hardly got driven.
Then she freaked him out ,and he went nuts on the car with a hammer,
thats what I'm betting happened to it

Ahhh french women... The passion, the drama, the hotness, the instability, the hotness...
I didn't know QC had a rep for rebuilt cars.
