Inside the war room of the Automobile Protection Association, Canada's top car consumer group, APA president George Iny prepares his staff for a grueling cross-country four-month mission. By the time it is over, they will have visited 81 used car dealers and inspected more than 100 vehicles. This W-FIVE episode presents an interesting investigation into used car dealers across Canada to see if consumers are being told the truth about the vehicles they buy.
