Re: First Post: Canadian Prices and Leasing Alternatives

Why not considering importing a vehicle. With the dollar where it is you're set to save an easy few grand. I will definitely be considering this for my next purchase. For a fully loaded Overland you're looking at a $8,000 - $10,000 difference. Usually the only difference is having MPH as the large numbers on your speedo, lol.

Re: First Post: Canadian Prices and Leasing Alternatives

Importing doesn't work if you're financing at times, warranty could be an issue from some companies..honestly didn't look into it too much for a Jeep.

We looked at buying an Overland in Toledo and found that after importing a jeep there was NO Warranty once it was registered in Ontario.

Do you gamble and take the chance a new vehicle will have no issues?

My friends brought up a RDX and RL from Seattle. Again, no warranty. That's how the car manufacturers keep people from going south (or at times North). Some like MB and I believe BMW have world wide warranties, but it's only 2 years, versus 4 years if you buy it in the same country as you reside in.

Just not worth the gamble to me. Better interest rate for me too that offsets part of the difference between Canada and US.

If I lived close to the border I would have no issue buying in the States. A few thousand saved makes up for what would be only a minor hassle crossing over for warranty work.

Re: First Post: Canadian Prices and Leasing Alternatives

Thanks for your input everyone. I have no interest in owning the vehicle as I will be bored with it in 3 years (as nice as the Overland is). I am just not good with long term relationships, with cars, not wifes. The issue I have with no leasing in Canada (yes TD offers something but it's not leasing) is the same selling price of another brand is way less/month when leasing. Whether it's a $50K Explorer, a $50K Buick Enclave or a $50K Lexus, they are all about $100/month less than a $50K Jeep. I have no intention of getting any of those other vehicles but when you look at the $50K, just as a number, it is hard to give Jeep/TD/Whoever, an extra $3600.00 over 36 months simply because they don't lease. They call it "Customer Choice Financing" in Canada and you can walk away and do everything you do when leasing but it is more money and this extra money is simply profit for the financing org. Will probably buy over 60 months and trade after 36 when the value and amount owing are pretty close...hopefully. LOL

No, you buy third party warranty. That's what I did. You would be surprised how inexpensive it is. Warranty is just another form of insurance.

I can't believe how much the car companies try to screw us in Canada.
