I just imported a 2013 WK2 today - had the US dealer enable the DRLs and change the vehicle country code to Canada so they stay on all the time. No issues with provincial safety or RIV inspection after that. Bring a brochure that states that it has the theft-deterrent immobilizer in case they question you but they didn't even bring it up with me.
I had a not-so-polite conversation with Chrysler about not honoring the warranty after crossing an imaginary line and they came out and said "Except as required by law, Chrysler Group LLC doesn't provide warranty coverage for vehicles exported from the U.S."
Debating whether to go with no warranty at all or spring for a 3rd party - anyone try Ensurall? They seem to have decent pricing but I am not sure how easy they are to put a claim through or how much you have to fight to get things covered.
