Let’s take a look at the results of a recent survey by Kijiji Autos Canada, and what it tells us specifically about buying a used car during the pandemic. As car shoppers do more than ever online, online auto marketplaces are taking extra steps to understand the changing habits of those shoppers during the pandemic. Analysis of this information can help reveal what’s driving more shoppers to used cars, what challenges they’re facing along the way, and what a shopper can do to anticipate and mitigate those challenges and stresses.
According to Kijiji’s survey data, close to one quarter of Canadians say they’ve considered buying or upgrading their car since the start of the pandemic, with about 19 per cent having visited at least one car dealership.
