Comes down to cost. Canadians don't switch up vehicles as much as Americans. We also don't buy the crazy high end vehicles. The Durango alone on lots goes for around $50k+ for that price we'll buy a ram sport for $6k less or buy another half ton because of how much more we can do with them.

Even with pickups a lot of people will buy used because we can't afford (on average) $40k+ vehicles. Average hourly wage in Nova Scotia is $17/hr.

Stats Canada actually says average income is $30,780 for Nova Scotia.

Yup and most I know with money want the show factor so they lease and get a new lease every 2-3 years.

That's what my boss is doing. He got a Toureg V6 and his wife just picked up an X5

Big money here usually buys the higher end American sports/muscle cars. Lots of scat packs, srt's, GT's, and SS's. More modded trucks though. More Cummins than anything really. Then wrx's. There's a tesla I see a lot, and a Bentley. But not much exotics

Downtown Montreal is a hotspot for supercar spotting. It's gotten to the point where people who live here would be more impressed by seeing a running Lada than an Aventador or something similar. Audi R8s and GT-Rs are a dime a dozen.

Swapped out the flasher relay on the Yaris. It isn't the problem. Stalk may need to come off

She may have a bad bulb where the filament broke and re-attached itself and has a lower resistance causing the whole weird flasher dilemma. My bet is on a bad bulb, replace both and see.....
