George Iny is a man on a mission -- to clean up the automotive world. Used cars, new cars, car mechanics -- all have been in his sights for fifteen years. As president of the Automobile Protection Association (APA), Iny and his team have looked under a lot of hoods and kicked a lot of tires while conducting undercover investigations. This year's survey of the used-car market in Toronto and Vancouver is no exception. With only four of 18 used-car dealers passing, Toronto had a shocking 78 per cent failure rate. Vancouver received a 55 per cent failure rate, with ten of 18 used-car dealers not making the grade.
