Northern Ontario isn't a place you want to be driving if you have an unreliable vehicle. Even if you’re only driving around Sudbury, when a big snow storm hits, getting to work isn’t easy if your car, truck, or SUV can’t handle the snow, ice, and sub-zero temperatures.


Auto Depot has been operating in Sudbury for years, so we know a thing or two about getting through a harsh winter in Sudbury. That’s why we hand-pick all of our used vehicle inventory, only choosing the highest-quality, most reliable vehicles available.


Here’s what makes a used vehicle worthy of Northern Ontario drivers:

4v4 and AWD

4x4 or AWD

If you’ve ever been stuck in mud or a snow bank you likely wished you had a 4x4 capable vehicle to get you out of that bind. When you’re living in Northern Ontario, having a vehicle with 4x4 capabilities, or at least the ability to operate in All-Wheel Drive (AWD) is a really smart idea. Generally, SUVs and pickup trucks have 4x4 capabilities, but there are a lot of cars that now come with some form of AWD. If you have questions about 4x4 or AWD, contact our staff today, they’ll be happy to answer all your questions.

Heated Seats

Heated Seats

Heated seats are pretty important if you’re going to get through a lovely Sudbury winter. There’s nothing worse than rushing to your car in the morning, just to sit on a hard, frozen seat. We carry a range of vehicles with heated seats, so find the car, truck, or SUV that’s right for you and never drive with a frozen behind ever again.

Size Does Matter

Not everyone needs a big, hulking pickup truck or SUV, but it’s important to remember that size does matter. For those who do a lot of highway driving, a large SUV or pickup truck will be taller than the average car and give you a better view of the road. If you’re ever in an accident, even though cars can have great safety ratings, most people will agree that a rugged truck or SUV will give you and your passengers better protection. We have an extensive selection of trucks and SUVs, so browse our inventory and find the right one for you.
