    The local multi franchise dealer where I bought my Colorado now has a zero contact service for maintenance and car servicing

    You book online and drop your keys off in a drop box outside

    If you want to test drive they sanitise the vehicle for you beforehand and drop it off out the front of the dealership

    This will likely only last a few more days I believe we will be in lockdown by Sunday this week

    So far we're in partial lockdown of services like pubs , cinemas , cafes ect ect

    I have watched Ford Credit's TV Commercial 20+ times, I have yet to see one from GM Financial, or Ally or TD what ever GM is using.

    The Virus part of this Pandemic, is going to be a Cake Walk, compared to the Finance part of the next year or 2
    Yes, I did see that part of the Ford.ca website and thought that was really good of them to put that out there. I've never been in a position to use it (thankfully) but apparently Ford is pretty good with working with their customers to assist if they get into financial trouble.

    I (selfishly) was hoping there was going to be some really smoking deals that I might have to take advantage of, but haven't seen anything appear as of yet!

    The COVID-19 virus could slash sales of new vehicles by more than a third this month, according to automotive forecaster J.D. Power.

    With state-mandated shutdowns in major markets accelerating across the country from New York to Detroit to San Francisco, the company says sales are already off 19% from its original March forecast. If current trends hold, J.D. Power expects sales by the end of the month to be off 32-40% from pre-virus forecasts.

    April Will Be worse. The first 1/2 of March, people knew of the Virus, but didn't think it would cause this
