In the matter of Motor Dealer Act R.S.B.C. 1996 C.316

Complainant: Vehicle Sales Authority of BC

Licensee/Unlicensed person:
Cars 4 U Auto Sales, Ltd.


  • Cars 4 U Auto Sales, Ltd. (“Cars 4 U”) applied to be registered as a motor dealer.
  • Cars 4 U’s principals, Satnam Singh Sanghera and Mohinder Singh Khaira, have ties to the defunct motor dealer, GN Motors, and its principals, Jojinder Singh Khaira and Raane Khaira.
  • Cars 4 U proposes to do business at the same location at which GN Motors operated.
  • Several claims have been payed by the Consumer Compensation Fund, due to the conduct of GN Motors
  • The Authority alleged that Cars 4 U was an attempt have GN Motors re-registered as a motor dealer, but with a different name.

The Registrar found that:

  • Satnam Singh Sanghera was part of the day-to-day operations of GN Motors. He had also invested $100,000 with GN Motors indicating more than an employment relationship. Satnam Singh Sanghera is an owner of Cars 4 U and will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of Cars 4 U;
  • Cars 4 U will be physically located at the same address as once was GN Motors;
  • Cars 4 U is using the same accountant as GN Motors;
  • Mohinder Singh Khaira is the brother of Joginder Singh Khaira;
  • Satnam Singh Sanghera is the cousin of Mohinder Singh Khaira and of Joginder Singh Khaira, the former owner of GN Motors;
  • Mohinder Singh Khaira has no experience running a dealership;
  • Mohinder Singh Khaira’s full-time work as a vice-principal and his side business building homes means he will have limited time to devote to the dealership;
  • Cars 4 U was incorporated about three to four months after Joginder Singh Khaira says GN Motors stopped operating;
  • The incorporation application for Cars 4 U was paid for using the credit card of a former declared owner of GN Motors and the wife of Joginder Singh Khaira, who was also a former owner of GN Motors;
  • The formal records address for Cars 4 U is the home of Mohinder Singh Khaira, where his brother Joginder Singh Khaira also resides;
  • Joginder Singh Khaira has admitted to acting on behalf of Cars 4 U in collecting rent cheques and attempting to evict tenants; and
  • Cars 4 U has made a financial donation on behalf of and in the name of Joginder Singh Khaira.

The Registrar further found that:

  • Cars 4 U and Joginder Singh Khaira have a greater connection then had been admitted;
  • Cars 4 U is really GN Motors and Joginder Singh Khaira trying to register as a motor dealer under a different corporate name and with at least one nominee owner, Mohinder Singh Khaira, to escape scrutiny and any liability of GN Motors;
  • Registering Cars 4 U as a motor dealer would expose consumers to an unacceptable risk of harm if Cars 4 U should misconduct itself in the manner that GN Motors did; and
  • It would not be in the public interest to register Cars 4 U as a motor dealer.

The Registrar denied Cars 4 U’s application for registration as a motor dealer.
