Buying a car, whether it’s new or second-hand, requires a lot of maintenance. In fact, you often need to do repairs, change the tires in the “shoulder” seasons and most of all, supply fuel for travel. To give you an idea, the spending costs associated for gasoline represents 69% for an average car (17% goes to maintenance and 14% to tires). That is why it is important to buy a vehicle that is the most fuel-efficient. Financement Auto Laval, located close to Montreal and the North Shore, offers you the 10 vehicles that are the most fuel-efficient or that use less electricity so that you can make the right choice!
