"Consumers need to be careful when they buy a vehicle or used parts, prevents Rick Dubin, Vice-President, Services survey BAC. The luxury vehicles, luxury may be more suspicious they seem. "
These high-end vehicles are often targeted by criminal organizations that strip them of their parts or resell them to unsuspecting consumers.
"We obtained good results in the interception of stolen vehicles in ports. Our data indicate that we do not see much anymore. We must therefore conclude that they are sold locally. However, as the stolen vehicles are found in the local markets, buyers need to be cautious, "said Dubin says.
To avoid buying a stolen vehicle, the consumer should not do business with a reputable dealer. To reduce the risk of being a victim of auto theft, you can request a report on the history of the vehicle. Mr. Dubin notes that the vehicles that are exported tend to be stolen in the region. "Usually, vehicles stolen in Quebec - like the Venza - are found in the port of Montreal, as thieves seem to want to get rid quickly. "
When he has to repair a damaged vehicle, consumers should make sure to deal only a repair shop reputable. An insurance company can recommend a reputable shop. Although auto theft has become an important economic activity, its numbers are down; however, concerns persist. "The good news, said Mr. Dublin is that statistics show that in 2010 the number of stolen vehicles in Canada (approximately 93,000) has decreased by 15% compared to 2009. The bad news is that the rate recovery of stolen vehicles continue to decline. So it seems that organized crime is involved. The legislation, including Bill S-9 (the Act auto theft and crime against property), increases the possibility of severe penalties for those involved in auto theft and property obtained by crime. Vigilance and public awareness are also important weapons in this struggle. We must all work together, the law enforcement agencies, governments, insurers and yes, even the drivers to force car thieves to cease their activities. "
