Canada’s automotive "Dr. Phil" says there’s never been a better time to buy a new car or truck.

For deals on wheels, 2013 will be a "perfect storm." There’s never been a better time to buy a new car or truck, thanks to a stronger Canadian dollar, a worldwide recession driving prices downward, and a more competitive Japanese auto industry that’s still reeling from a series of natural disasters.

In addition to lower prices and more choices, 2013 car buyers will see more generous cash rebates, low financing rates, bargain leases, and free auto maintenance programs.

  • Buy, sell, or hold?
  • Which cars and trucks are "wallet-friendly" and can easily last 15 years?
  • Which vehicles offer the most features to best accommodate senior drivers?
  • Do ethanol and hybrid fuel-saving claims have more in common with Harry Potter than the Society of Automotive Engineers?
  • Is GM’s 2013 Volt electric car destined to become an electric Edsel?

These questions and more are answered in this informative guide.
