As a car owner, if your vehicle is damaged by a major collision, or a minor parking lot scrape, you must decide whether to use your insurance or pay out of your own pocket. If you’re at fault, ICBC will cover damage to your vehicle, but that will also likely result in your premiums going up. If you’re a RoadStar – which means you’ve driven nine or more years without an at-fault claim – you could lose 43 per cent discount on your insurance. If you are a RoadStar, you definitely want to keep your status even if you pay a little more upfront if it means saving down the road.
Mazda is one of the most popular cars on the roads in the Tri-city area. They are sleek, sporty, yet affordable.

In fact, this process has the smallest environmental footprint of any-water based paint system used in the industry today, including those by popular car companies such as Honda, Toyota, and GM.
