He says now is probably the best time to purchase a new vehicle, as the price is comparable to buying used. Qualey says while the Northeast has been affected by the economic downturn, the area wasn’t affected as hard as other areas in the province.

Now, he says, technology is advancing, and he predicts more people will take advantage of purchasing a new vehicle. [asset|aid=1916|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=aaa0a0b5218da00f7105f180fe9c1bc0-Blair Qualey 2_1_Pub.mp3]
