Should I Buy a Vehicle in the U.S.?

  • The Canada / U.S. exchange rate;
  • Which vehicles have the lowest import duties and taxes;
  • A calculation of duties, taxes and fees;
  • Repair and Modification requirements;
  • Will your vehicle comply with Federal & Provincial import requirements?; and
  • Will your warranty be honoured in Canada?
