It's George Iny's mission to clean up the used-car business in Canada. As president of the Automobile Protection Association (APA), Iny has dedicated the past 17 years to exposing dishonest dealers, revealing concealed accidents and uncovering sloppy repairs. Most Canadian car buyers purchase used vehicles. In fact, almost 70 per cent of vehicles sold in Canada last year were previously owned, making the investigative work of Iny and the APA important to millions of Canadians. After studying the classifieds ads, Iny, his team of mystery shoppers and an ace mechanic kicked the tires and checked a whole lot more at 18 used car dealers in Vancouver and 16 dealers in Toronto. The results in both cities were troubling.
