Prices in Canada are actually cheaper than in the States.....why do you wanna pay more, and go through the hassle of customs???

It's the same car.

Base price in Canada just over CAN$40K.
Base price in US at US$31K ~CAN$46K.

One I priced with options at CAN$46K.
Similarly optioned in US at CAN$51K.

In Ontario, this goes out the door at $55.5K.
If you import, you'll at least have to pay GST. The total will be $54.5K. No idea what other custom/tax you'll have to add.

I know it doesnt cost a penny to go from canada to US... I have done it several times ... all you need to do is apply for a new title in the states($20) I dont know what Canada charges you? I dont think you should have to pay a dime. just re register the vehicle. you will obviously have to pay whatever U.S. taxes. (city, state,fed) whatever applies.

Importing a car into Canada from the US?? There's duty (I think), PST, and GST. Therefore, there's no way you can get away with those items.....Since you're paying the taxes anyway, might as well get it in Canada.

Why don't you buy it from Alberta? You save 10% PST there! I really want to get one from Alberta but I am not sure if it's actually possible/practical??
