This stark site has an adequate configurator that hits a dead end once you've completed the configuration. New inventory is not online but used is. The site is relatively free of bandwidth hogging extras but could really use a shot of colour - must things be so monochromatic?

Pros:
The configurator is easy to use and quick. Used inventory can be searched easily.

Cons:
The configurator has a rather glaring error (in my opinion) - you can add multiple options to a vehicle. For example I can choose 3 different types of wheels to add to my vehicle and the configurator just adds them on to the total. Also, when you are done configuring the vehicle you can't do anything with that information - you can't save it, print it or send it to a dealer (or yourself). Pretty useless, I'd say. I also find it kind of disturbing that the site has a copyright date of 2004 - how long does it take for your 'web guy' (or gal) to make sure that the copyright date is up to date?

How to:

  • Configure a car
    From the main page select a model from the column in the left by hovering over it - then select the Build your XXX (where XXX is the model you are looking at) link from the list of links below the picture. On the next screen select colours, trim level, options and accessories.

  • Search for a used car
    Select your province, year, model, trim level, door type, transmission, colour and mileage and click on the Search button. Note that only the province selection is mandatory.

  • Locate a dealer
    Select a region from the drop down list on the right or click on your area in the map of Canada displayed.

Welcome to BMW Canada
http://www.bmw.ca/english/index.html

A sluggish, flash-laden site that rates fairly low overall. Most annoying is the way that things are squished up in to a restricted area of the screen so that you have to scroll around to make sure you aren't missing anything. BMW you could do so much better. New inventory is not online but used inventory is.

Pros:
The configurator is fairly easy to use although it is annoying that you have to keep scrolling down to make your choice of colour, options etc. When you are finished the configuration process you can print it, save it, send it to a friend or send to a retailer. You can search used inventory online through the website.

Cons:
To save your configured vehicle or send it to a retailer you must register which requires you to submit personal information on a non-secure form. There is no turnaround guarantee given when you submit your quote request. New inventory is not online. You do not see the details of your configured vehicle that are sent to the dealer and you can only send your quote request ot a single dealership.

How to:

  • Configure a car
    From the main page select a series and model then select the Build your own link. Configure the vehicle by choosing colours and options (choices are not visible in the default view - you must scroll down to see them).

  • Search for a used car
    Fill in the myriad of search criteria and enter your location details and then click on Search at the bottom left hand corner of the page.;

  • Locate a dealer
    From the main page click on Find a Retailer.

http://www.gmcanada.com/english/home/home.html

Use this site to configure and get quote requests on the vehicle brands listed above.

A fairly quick and easy to use configurator that offers you quite a few choices when you've finished configuring your vehicle. Both new and used inventory is online.

Pros:
The configurator works well although I wish web designers would try and keep everything in the visible screen area so you don't have to scroll around to pick things like colours and then scroll back up to see how the vehicle looks in that colour. When you've finished with the configuration you can send it to a friend (or yourself), print it, save it in a virtual garage or send it to a dealer for a quote request. Both used and new inventory is online in a good format that allows you to find all the vehicles in your area by searching using your postal code (as opposed to other sites that force you to go dealership to dealership looking for your vehicle of interest).

Cons:
No turnaround guarantee is given when you request a quote and the form where you supply your information is not secure. You are actually taken to the dealership's website when you request a quote - I would prefer that you remain on the main GM site and simply pick which dealership you want to send your quote request to. Because of this approach you only get to request a quote from a single dealer (although I guess you could repeat the process and ask to have a quote from another dealer).

How to:

  • Configure a car
    From the main page select your brand and model from the list on the left hand side of the page. On the next screen click on the Build Your XXX (where XXX is the model you've selected) link on the left hand side of the page. Choose your model trim level and then follow the steps to complete your configuration.

  • Search for a new car
    Choose your search criteria in the 4 drop down boxes and then specify your postal code and click on the Search By Postal Code button.

  • Search for a used car
    You've got several choices here - search optimum used vehicles or Saturn or Saab certified pre-owned vehicles. I'm not clear whether every vehicle on a dealer's lot will fall in to one of these categories so if you want to do a thorough search probably best to search using this page first and then use the dealer locator (below) to see if there are any additional used vehicles listed on a dealership's website.

  • Locate a dealer
    Indicate the brands you are interested in and input your postal code or city/province or full/partial dealer name.

Chrysler.ca
http://www.chrysler.ca/en/

A spiffy and quick configurator that hits a dead end once you've finished configuring a vehicle. New and used inventory are both online but not in a centrally accessible way - you have to access them dealership by dealership (yuck).

Pros:
The configurator is easy to understand. New and used inventory is online on a dealership by dealership basis.

Cons:
Once you've configured a vehicle the only choice you have is to print the summary - you can't save the configured details in a virtual garage, email it anywhere or send it to a retailer. New and used inventory is accessible only on a dealership by dealership basis - so for example if from the main page you click on Get a Quote you'll be able to see a map with local dealers indicated. Next to the dealership name will be a button to see their inventory - but why should I have to search for a vehicle I am interested in a number of times (at each dealership) rather than once (by distance from my postal code)??

How to:

  • Configure a car
    From the main page hover over the vehicle name that you want to configure in the bar across the top of the screen. Then click on the Build & Price link that appears in the list on the right hand side of the page. Follow the subsequent screens to configure the vehicle.

  • Search for a new car
    Click on the Get A Quote link, put in your postal code and click on the Search button. You'll be shown a list of nearby dealerships - click on the button in the right hand column to see that dealership's inventory. Follow the instructions on the dealership site to search new inventory.

  • Search for a used car
    Click on the Get A Quote link, put in your postal code and click on the Search button. You'll be shown a list of nearby dealerships - click on the button in the right hand column to see that dealership's inventory. Follow the instructions on the dealership site to search used inventory.

  • Locate a dealer
    Click on the Locate A Retailer link in the middle right hand area of the page. In the pop up window supply your postal code or city and province or retailer name.

  • Find recall information
    Click on the View Chrysler Recall Notices link at the bottom of the page (you'll be transferred to the Daimler Chrysler website in the US).

One of our Favorites!Ford Motor Company of Canada, Limited
http://www.ford.ca/

A very easy to use and quick configurator with lots of options when you're done. Both new and used inventory are online although I'm not impressed with how either is implemented.

Pros:
Simple and easy to use configurator that allows you to estimate payments, print out a summary sheet or email a summary as well as request a quote on the configured vehicle. Most impressive is that when you click on the Request A Quote button you'll be taken to a secure page for input of your personal information. Well done Ford! Used and new inventory is online.

Cons:
There is no ability to save your configured vehicle in a virtual garage nor is a turnaround guarantee given for the quote request. You can only send your quote request to a single dealership. New and used inventory is available online but on a dealership by dealership basis so you must search each dealership in turn.

Turns out you can save up to five vehicles in a virtual garage that only requires a username and a password to create it but I was unsuccessful in getting this feature to work.

How to:

  • Configure a car
    From this page select your vehicle and then follow the prompts to configure your vehicle.

  • Search for a new car
    Use the dealer locator page to find the dealerships in your area (probably best to search by city and province or by postal code). Then click on the Search Inventory button next to the dealership name. To search new inventory use the search inventory tool displayed in the center of the page.

  • Search for a used car
    Use the dealer locator page to find the dealerships in your area (probably best to search by city and province or by postal code). Then click on the Search Inventory button next to the dealership name. To search used inventory use the search inventory tool displayed in the left hand column and click on the pre-owned radio button.

  • Locate a dealer
    Search for a dealer by city and province, postal code or dealership name.

  • Find recall information
    Enter your VIN in the box to see if there are any outstanding recalls on your vehicle. Well done Ford!

Honda Canada
http://www.honda.ca/HondaCA2006/

Ack - too much flash, enough already. Anyway, back to the matter at hand. The configurator is simple and well laid out but unfortunately peters out when you reach the end. New inventory doesn't seem to be available online but used is.

Pros:
The configurator is okay but you can't do anything when you're finished - not even print off a summary page. Used inventory is online (although I've got a complaint about it that you can read below).

Cons:
The lack of options in the configurator is pathetic - no quote request, no emailing the summary. New inventory doesn't seem to be online anywhere and used inventory can only be searched by province (hello - this is Canada not Japan - searching on a provincial basis just doesn't cut it). I thought I might be able to get some more satisfaction by locating a dealer but dealership sites are simply pages off of the main site - no inventory listed that I could see.

How to:

  • Configure a car
    From the main page select your model by hovering over the model names in the bar across the top and then selecting the trim level below the model name. On the next page click on the Build It Price It link in the left hand column and then follow the steps to configure your vehicle.

  • Search for a used car
    Select your province from the drop down list and select the car details you desire and click on the Search Now button.

  • Locate a dealer
    Search for a dealer by postal code or region.

Hyundai Auto Canada
http://www.hyundaicanada.com/

An okay configurator that gives you several options when you finish the configuration process. Neither new or used inventory is available online.

Pros:
The configuration process is fairly quick and certainly easy to understand. When you have finished configuring the vehicle you can request a quote, schedule a test-drive, print the configuration or email it to a friend.

Cons:
It is unclear to me whether the configured vehicle details are being included in the quote request you send although I think they are not. There is no turnaround guarantee given on the quote request. Neither new or used inventory is available online although used inventory may be available on dealers' websites.

How to:

  • Configure a car
    From the main page click on the Build & Price link in the right hand column. Then select your model and follow the instructions to configure your vehicle.

  • Locate a dealer
    On the main page select your province from the drop down list under the Dealer Locator heading in the right hand column.

Jaguar Home Page
http://www.jaguar.ca/english/home.asp?l=e

This site used to have a configurator but it has disappeared again - I think. Surely if I have to look this hard for something it is unlikely a casual visitor will find it. Neither new nor used inventory is available online.

Pros:
There is nothing positive to say about this site.

Cons:
I realize that Jaguar probably likes to present itself as this old-fashioned, traditional company that prefers to have personal contact with each and every client but I fail to see why this means they have to stay in the dark ages as far as their website is concerned. Every study I've ever read indicates that the affluent tend to use the Internet more than 'average' folks so it seems to me that Jaguar is really missing out by not having a configurator or inventory online at their site.

How to:

  • Locate a dealer
    Locate a dealer by clicking on the appropriate province link.

I quite like this site for its simple navigation and colourful fun approach but it is totally lacking in any of the E-quality characteristics. No configurator and no inventory - either new or used - available online.

Pros:
The site layout is simple and easy to follow and I like the lack of flash and excessive bandwidth hogging graphics and gimmicks.

Cons:
No configurator, no inventory online - pathetic.

How to:

  • Locate a dealer

Lexus.ca
http://www.lexus.ca/lexus/experience/en/home/index.jsp?

A somewhat sluggish site that makes a good effort on getting on the road to true 21st century functionality but fall short. There is a configurator and you do get some options when you've finished configuring the vehicle but not all the options I consider essential. You can search for used Lexus (Lexi?) online but not new vehicles.

Pros:
The configurator is a single page version that is adequate and allows you to save your vehicle, calculate payments, apply for credit online or print out your vehicle details. You can search used inventory online.

Cons:
There is no way to request a quote on a configured vehicle - the help guide suggests that you print out the vehicle details and "take it directly to your Lexus dealer for a simpler and faster purchasing experience". I fail to see how this is simpler or faster for the consumer - truly faster and simpler would be to put a quote request feature on the website and let me ask a dealer electronically if they have a vehicle with a configuration similar to what I've chosen and how much it costs. There is no way to email the configuration. New inventory is not online.

How to:

  • Configure a car
    From the main page select a model from the column on the left hand side of the page. Then select the Build link from the area above the picture (some newer models may not have this link). Then select interior and exterior colours, options and upgrades.

  • Search for a used car
    Select your model(s) on the left hand side of the page and then your location and characteristic (i.e. mileage, price range) criteria on the right hand side of the page. Click on Submit to start the search.

  • Locate a dealer
    Click on your province in the map of Canada or search by dealer name using the search box at the top of the page.

Mazda Canada
http://www.mazda.ca/detect.asp?lang=eng

There is an incredibly long-winded but essentially 'go nowhere' configurator on this site. Neither new nor used inventory is available online.

Pros:
The configurator allows you to print out your summary when you are finished configuring your vehicle as well as contact a dealer regarding a test drive.

Cons:
The configurator goes on and on - not only do you configure the vehicle but you have to choose extended protection and warranty plans and then calculate the price. There is no option to save your configured vehicle, email the configuration or - most importantly - request a quote. Neither used nor new inventory is available online.

How to:

  • Configure a car
    Choose your vehicle and then move through the subsequent screens choosing colours, options etc. You move between steps using the arrow at the bottom of the page.

  • Locate a dealer
    Find a dealer by dealer name or city or select your province from the drop down list.

Mercedes-Benz Canada
http://www.mercedes-benz.ca/

A well-designed configurator with plenty of options when you're done configuring. Used inventory is online but new isn't.

Pros:
I like the design of this configurator that is mostly kept within a single page so you don't have to scroll around too much. When you're done configuring your vehicle you can print out a summary, save the configuration, calculate payments or send the configuration to a dealer. Used inventory is online.

To save a configuration or send it to a dealer you must create an account but this only requires your first and last name, an email address and a password so the fact that it is on a non-secure form is not a huge problem.

Cons:
You can't email your configuration (to a friend for example) nor are you given a turnaround guarantee when you send you configuration details to a dealer. New inventory is not online.

How to:

  • Configure a car
    Click on the blue box next to the vehicle you wish to configure. On the subsequent screen select your model and then use the tabs across the top to move between screens and select your packages, paint and upholstery and interior and exterior options.

  • Search for a used car
    Use the drop down boxes to indicate the characteristics of the vehicle you are looking for and search either by city (drop down box on bottom right of page) or postal code (input into bottom left hand box).

  • Locate a dealer
    Locate a dealer by postal code or see a list of dealers within a city by selecting it from the drop down box on the right.

One of our Favorites!Nissan.ca
http://www.nissan.ca/en/

A very good job by Nissan on this site. An easy to use configurator with lots of options available once you configure the vehicle. New inventory is online but strangely I can't seem to locate used inventory which is disappointing.

Pros:
The configurator works on a single page and is easy to understand. Once you've configured your Nissan you can save it to your garage, print out a summary, email the configuration and (presumably) send the configuration details to a dealer. You can also locate vehicles that match or are similar to the one you've configured on a local dealer's lot which is very cool.

Cons:
It is not 100% clear to me that when you contact a dealer the configured vehicle details are being sent as well. Also, if you create a virtual garage in which to save your vehicles it is not instantaneous - rather the password for your garage will be emailed to you. Obviously this is a pain if you are in a hurry and just want to save a vehicle configuration RIGHT NOW. There is no turnaround guarantee given if you contact a dealer and the page where you submit your personal details is not secure. Also you only get to send your quote request to a single dealer.

I would also like it if you could search new inventory without going through the configuration process (just to see what is on dealers' lots). And of course it is unfortunate that used inventory is not online.

How to:

  • Configure a car
    Select your vehicle from the main page and then pick colours and options on the single-page configurator.

  • Search for a new car
    After configuring a vehicle (see above) and locating a dealer click on the Locate Your Nissan tab at the top of the screen. You'll be shown what your local dealer has on hand and how it matches the vehicle you have configured - NEAT!

  • Locate a dealer
    Locate dealer by postal code, city or dealer name/keyword.

Cons:
There is no configurator on this site and new inventory is not available online.

TOYOTA CANADA : TOYOTA.CA
http://www.toyota.ca/

I honestly have no idea what Toyota is up to on this site - the configurator is annoying and far from intuitive and what happens after you've configured a vehicle is anyone's guess. I felt like a dog chasing my tail. Add to that the fact that new inventory isn't online and this site is disappointing in the extreme.

Pros:
After configuring your vehicle you can save it, print a vehicle summary (in PDF format -w ith or without picture), get pre-approved for credit or request a test drive. Used inventory is online.

Cons:
The 'business part' (where you make your selections) of the configurator is squished up in to a little area running horizontally across the middle of the page and you have to scroll down to see your options. Presumably if you are in a location with an Access Toyota you don't request a quote but are instead shown a price quote - but it only has MSRP - what good is that? There is no option to email your configuration and new inventory is not online.

How to:

  • Configure a car
    Select your vehicle (click on the vehicles button on the right hand side and then click on the graphic of the vehicle that interests you). On the next page select the Price Your Toyota link under the XXX Navigation menu (where XXX is the vehicle you have chosen).

  • Search for a used car
    Select Toyota Used Vehicles from the menu underneath the Site Navigation heading in the top right hand corner of the page. On the next page click on the used vehicle search link on the right hand side of the page (usually we would give you direct links but Toyota uses some kind of weird 'web objects' method of labelling their pages which produces incredibly long and unreliable URLs to pages).

VW.ca
http://www.vw.ca/

The configurator is nicely designed and works well. Used inventory is online but new is not.

Pros:
The configurator is very nicely designed and doesn't really on you being intuitive and guessing what to do next - it has good, brief instructions. You can request a quote when you've done configuring the vehicle. The used inventory search is good.

Cons:
You don't have a lot of options once you've configured a vehicle - the pop up 'How it works' box says that you can save the vehicle in to a 'My VW' folder but I can see no way to do that. You can't print the summary or email it. If you do request a quote you have to submit personal information on a non-secure form and no turnaround guarantee is given. New inventory is not online.

How to:

  • Configure a car
    Select your model and then follow the steps to select trim, engine, colours and options.

  • Search for a used car
    Select your model(s), years and postal code or province and click on search.

  • Locate a dealer
    Enter your postal code and distance to search or a dealer's name and click on the Search button.

Welcome to Volvo Canada
http://www.volvocanada.com/

A spiffy configurator that is miles beyond what Volvo used to have but is still somewhat disappointing in lack of options when you've finished your configuration. Used inventory is online but new inventory is not.

Pros:
The configurator works very nicely indeed and although a bit flash (in the British sense of the word, not the Macromedia sense) it is easy to use and understand. When you're done you can email the summary to a friend, preview and print it or schedule a test drive. Used inventory is online.

Cons:
You can not request a quote on a configured vehicle although I guess you could use the Send to A Friend function and simply send the summary to one (or more) dealerships in your area. New inventory is not online and although used inventory is it has an ineffective search mechanism (search by province rather than by postal code).

How to:

  • Configure a car
    On the main page click on the Build & Price link, indicate your province and then follow the steps to configure your vehicle.

  • Search for a used car
    Search by province and all dealerships within the province or select a single dealership from the Retailers list on the right.

  • Locate a dealer
    Click on your province/territory of interest and then pick your desired dealership out of the list. Volvo insists on listing dealerships alphabetically by dealership name rather than by location so that in British Columbia, for example, Don Docksteader Volvo of Vancouver is at the top of the list and Volvo of North Vancouver is near the bottom. Doesn't make any sense to me but what do I know.
