Am I right to say that most good off lease cars stay at the dealer and sell as CPO? Would Haldimand not be the place to look for a 4 year old off lease?mw83krk wrote: ↑The fact it was in Quebec and at an auction doesn't bother me. My current used car was originally from Quebec as well. Personally, I'd look for something under 80k in km. Sure it's a Subaru but pending who owned it, 123k is enough to do some damage if they drove it hard or didn't follow maintenance schedules. Look for a 4 year old car off lease (usually low km) or a 2 year old car that typically has 50-60k ... you get to take advantage of all the depreciation and sometimes still have some warranty left.

I was all set on getting one until this past weekend I test drove it. I found the suspension to be pretty stiff and the car pretty bouncy. I found the Crosstrek to be a lot smoother ride. Unfortunately the Crosstrek is a lot smaller car so it didn't work out for me.

The OEM dealers get first Crack at their own brand of cars at the Auctions. For example there will be Ford days, GM days, Chrysler days etc. Then whatever is left over goes up for grabs to independent dealers on another time. That's why most OEM dealers have nicer cleaner cars with lower mileage.

Was it a new one? If so, did they set the tire pressures properly?

I didn't check the tire pressure. It was a brand new one at the dealership, Conv. pkgmovieman wrote: ↑Was it a new one? If so, did they set the tire pressures properly?
I've seen a number of people complain about lousy ride in their new Forester, then discover the tires were pumped up to around 50psi, as they came from the factory. When we test-drove a Forester XT that hadn't been driven before, the sales lady was pretty adamant about getting the tire pressure reset before we drove it, probably for that reason.
