About Comox Valley Delica Auto Imports

We’ve been importing the Mitsubishi Delica and other Japanese vehicles to Canada since we opened in 2008.

We offer our customers the full service deal. Along with selling, servicing and importing Mitsubishi Delica vehicles, we’re also your source for advice and information on all things Delica – which model is right for you, owner’s manuals, information on maintaining your Delica and much more.

What is a Mitsubishi Delica?

The Delica is a remarkably dependable and utilitarian four-wheel drive, right-hand drive vehicle with a tonne of options (like Turbo Diesel!).

A message from Benn Pridham, owner & founder

Welcome to Comox Valley Delica Auto Imports! I’m passionate about Delicas and can often be found servicing these super-dependable vehicles in my shop in Cumberland, Vancouver Island. As a Certified Heavy Duty Diesel / Heavy Truck Mechanic (and a proud Delica owner), there’s nowhere else I’d rather be!
A bit about my background: Originally from Eastern Canada, I began my 20-year military career as a Certified Aircraft Mechanic and ended as an Avionics Maintenance Engineer. I then found myself working for Air Canada as an Aircraft Mechanic, retiring in 2008.
Retirement led me to Vancouver Island’s Comox Valley, settling down in the legendary Village of Cumberland. Here, I fell in love with the Mitsubishi Delica at first sight. The rest is history.
When you own a Mitsubishi Delica, you’re not just a customer; you’re part of the family.

I’m always just a phone call away at 250.400.1195. Or, if you prefer, you can email me at
