Serving the Peterborough and surrounding area, Trans Canada Nissan and Trans Canada's Used Car City, both located at 1189 Lansdowne St. West Peterborough, are your premier retailers of  new and used vehicles - including cars, trucks, and SUVs. Our dedicated sales staff and top-trained technicians are here to make your auto shopping experience fun and easy.

Trans Canada Motors has been part of the Peterborough community since 1971. This was when Paul and Dorothy O'Reilly left Toronto to begin what would end up being one of the most highly recognized dealers in the area, due to the "honest family feeling" everyone experienced when they stepped through the doors.

The business began as the "By-Pass Texaco" on Lansdowne East. It quickly became a hot spot for commuters on their way to and from our nation's capital, or during visits to the beautiful cottage country area that is our back yard. People stopped in to take that long awaited "pit stop" and fill up the tank, as most cars at that time consumed twice as much fuel as today, and it was the only place in the area to get fuel.

At that time, automobile manufacturers were busy expanding their world market. The "Big Three" dominated everywhere, and smaller imported vehicle manufacturers were not considered a threat, nor even 'players' in North America. These manufacturers were begging strong businesses to take franchises in order to flood the marketplace with their new, unheard-of vehicles - giving Trans Canada Motors an exciting new opportunity! So we added some new cars to the mix. Fiat became the first, with others following; including Nissan, who used the name Datsun until 1984. We now had the traffic, so why not service them...and our Sales & Service departments began.

After 18 years and three locations, we created the Used Car City name where we currently stock and sell a combination of all makes and models of vehicles, making us the most diversified dealer in the area. We have Saturn and GM trained technicians welcoming hundreds of new customers to our dealership.

After more than 40 years we have doubled our size while continuing to provide the best quality vehicles that are available today. Our staff, most who have been here for many years, have built our family atmosphere with dedication to their careers, and the genuine care they show our customers ever day. It is who we are. It is our lifestyle. It is the Trans Canada Motors family.

As we continue to build on our strong morals of doing business, we welcome you to Trans Canada Nissan and Trans Canada's Used Car City, to experience the difference yourself. Call us today at 1-888-747-4289.

"Trans Canada Nissan, #1 dealership in Peterborough. I have been a customer of Trans Canada Nissan for many years now and would not shop anywhere else. Jeff and all his staff make me feel like family every visit. The service department is top notch, number one in my opinion. Without service you have nothing. My overall experience in sales and service with the dealership has been wonderful in every sense."

"The previous years proved we made the right choice at Trans Canada Nissan. When we require our preventative maintenance, the staff - from receptionist to the service manager - treat us as though we were their only customer. I guarantee our next purchase will definitely be with Trans Canada Nissan."
Marilyn Ewart

"Dean, the service manager, is a super guy - if you can't get along with him then you can't get along with anyone! Jeff Tysick is an honest guy. All the technicians are extremely friendly and they know thier stuff. Joyce Eisner is an excellent sales person. I really fee like I am one of the family when I am at Trans Canada Nissan."
George Elliott

"I took my car to your facilities today for a major service, Trans Canada Nissan, and wanted you to know that I am very very very satisfied with the service received from everybody, including Jason Robinson (merci beaucoup, Jason...) Friendliness from everyone, humour, good coffee, candies, tv, my shuttle ride to the YMCA via George, etc., all confirmed that I made the right decision three years ago to buy a Nissan from you. P.S.  ...and my car was even washed when I picked it!!!"
