New Modo on the Block

This year, we've added more new vehicles to our fleet than any previous year to keep up with demand, including locations in Saanich, Burnside and Fernwood! In addition to some of your favourite makes and models, we've been able to add brand new ones like our Chevrolet Colorado, which is part of our Heavy Lifters offering.

 

Have you been behind the wheel of a new Modo? Snap a photo and share it with us online! Because why own a car when you can share 500?

 

Don't forget to check out our monthly Seat Sale where you can save 10% on your booking!
