Cross Border Shopping - For Cars and Trucks

THIS most interesting article from the Financial Post tells us that Canadian Car dealers are hurting because their customers can go to the US and buy the same vehicle for significantly less.

They make much of exchange rates being at the root of the problem but the truth lies in the intransigence and greed of the Canadian manufacturing / importing / wholesaling and retailing networks and their associations.

There is no reason on God's green earth why for example a Ford f15o that goes for under $36,000 US should be listed at over $50,000 in Canada!

Somebody is getting screwed and it does not have to be you.

Canadian laws allow you to go south and buy a vehicle at a better price??

I highly recommend that you do it.

US warranties can be significantly better as well. for example, my Kia Sportage has a 5 yr 100,000 km warranty. The same vehicle in North Dakota has a 7 year 100,000 MILE warranty.
