Fortunately, if you happen to own one of these vehicles and are looking to sell, we at Cash For Cars BC are always looking to buy. And unlike when you try to sell your car privately, we’ll buy your vehicle the very same day, and can complete the process in as little as 30 minutes.
7. Land Rover Range Rover (68 days)
Land Rover has always had a name for making great quality and stylish premium vehicles. The Range Rover has always been something consumers look to as a sign of success. If you own a Range Rover, you are automatically seen as affluent by the general public.
Although this is still a very true statement to date, historically the sale of used Range Rovers has depleted greatly over the years. Though the vehicle is still the same well-made SUV, it is up against some pretty stiff competition.
Between today’s 4×4’s, crossovers, and EV SUV’s, the traditional Range Rover isn’t something at the forefront of people’s minds when they are shopping for a used vehicle.
6. Tesla Model X (71 days)
In a time when everyone is going green, or at least making a valiant effort to reduce carbon emissions, the Tesla Model X makes the top 10 list of slowest selling cars in Canada. But how could a Tesla make it to the list when so many people aspire to own one of these cars?
Simple; there are many other more affordable options for starters. Secondly, Tesla doesn’t buy their own used vehicles, so trading in your Tesla is tricky. Many people have to sell it privately or take a big hit to their trade-in value by selling it to another dealership. With so many other Tesla Model X’s on the market, finding a buyer may be harder than you anticipate.
Fortunately, Cash For Cars BC is the Lower Mainland’s #1 used Tesla buyer. Nobody buys more Tesla vehicles for cash than we do, and we always offer the MOST cash for cars.
5. Cadillac XT4 (72 days)
As we get closer to the number one spot, you’ll notice that the number of days it takes to sell a car on this list increases. This is no different with the Cadillac XT4. While you might think it’s odd to see a Cadillac on the list of slowest selling cars in Canada in 2023, there’s a valid reason.
The Cadillac XT4 has a lengthy list of consumer reports and complaints of various mechanical problems. From erratic or delayed shifting to transmission failures and sudden power loss, the Cadillac XT4 has a high turnover rate.
Many people who buy one, shortly after, decide to sell, trade-in or trade-up, or simply deal with the ever-mounting recall list. This is why this particular model of Cadillac has a harder time being sold than any other vehicles in the Cadillac line-up.
4. Land Rover Discovery Sport (74 days)
Another Land Rover makes it to the top 10 list of slowest selling cars in Canada in 2023, but this time it’s the Discovery Sport that’s taken a place.
Once a highly coveted SUV by many consumers, the Discovery Sport can’t quite keep up with the compiling competition of premium SUV’s on the market today. Not only that, much like the previously mentioned Cadillac XT4, the Discovery Sport suffers from slow or unresponsive acceleration, spiky shifting, and transmission issues as well.
This makes it a tough sell for anyone wanting to buy a used premium SUV. If you’re in the market for a newer (or new-to-you) premium SUV, you won’t want to shell out a lot of dough on something that may or may not be a reliable vehicle.
3. Ford Mustang Mach-E (76 days)
We’ve all heard the acronyms for Ford… Fix or Repair Daily… Found on Road Dead… The list keeps going. Although Ford has never had a name for making reliable vehicles, they do have a name for innovation. Such is the case with the Ford Mustang Mach-E.
When it first appeared on the market, many Mustang enthusiasts were excited to see and hear about all that it had to offer, many firsthand. However, true to the Ford expectations of consumers, the Mach E received an incredibly low reliability rating. This is a large part of why it spends so much time on the market before it actually gets sold.
If you are trying to sell a Mach E, sell it to Cash For Cars BC instead. We can buy your car the same day, instead of you having to wait literally 2.5 months for someone to buy it for less than you’re hoping.
2. Buick Envision (82 days)
Another Buick makes the cut to the top 10 slowest selling vehicles in Canada. Again, as mentioned earlier, Buick worked tirelessly to try and rebrand itself with a hipper vibe to appeal to the younger generation.
All their attempts were futile as their price point wasn’t focused on their demographic as much as their advertising campaign was. While the Envision is a comfortable, fuel-efficient, and generally well-designed compact SUV, it doesn’t offer the power or reliability that some of it’s more refined competitors do.
Plus, with it priced between a premium SUV and a mid-grade SUV, it’s not worth the price for what you get. This is what makes the Envision such a hard sell and is why it takes a minimum of 82 days to sell this car.
1. Tesla Model S (88 days)
Another Tesla tops off our top 10 list of slowest selling cars in Canada. The Tesla Model S typically takes a whopping 88 days to sell privately. Why? Because again, there is so much competition on the market today with other more affordable hybrids and fully electric cars and SUVs.
Not only are there many more options out there, but Tesla’s competitors also haven’t had the poor publicity of their vehicles spontaneously combusting as many have in BC. No wonder there are two Tesla models on the list of slowest selling cars in Canada this year…

Slowest Selling New Cars on the Market in Canada
We’ve just covered the top 10 slowest selling used cars in Canada of 2023, so not onto the top 10 list for slowest selling NEW cars. If you thought the length of time it took for any of the used cars in the list to sell was outrageous, just wait until you see the numbers for these new cars.
10. Infiniti QX80 (87 days)
When you compare the rate at which the Infiniti QX80 sells to the slowest selling car on our “used” list, it’s shocking. Especially when the slowest selling used car took 88 days on average to sell.
