Price increase in Canada

I just noticed that prices in Canada have gone up today. Yesterday, the base price of a Grand Cherokee Laredo was just shy of $40,000. Today it's $40,495. Perhaps this is a result of a weaker Canadian dollar.

Re: Price increase in Canada

Hmmm yeah you're right. Not by much considering the price of the GC, but an increase is an increase.

Re: Price increase in Canada

Well yeah, the CAD as lost over 20% against the greenback in the last months...so it will reflect in all consumer goods. What really gets me, is that a couple years back, not too long ago, the Canadian buck was stronger then the US currency, and goods were still cheaper in the states...we are sooooo getting screwed left and right up here...I still cross the boarder every two weeks to do groceries...even with 20% currency diff, I save lots...go figure...

The funny thing is when the dollars are on par they don't lower the price

Why don't you just buy one in Yankeeland? It would still be cheaper . . . even with the exchange. No??

Not really - I looked that this option, here's why it won't work.

With the exchange rate at close to 20%, plus the additional expenses of importing and transportation to get the Jeep into Canada one would save very little.

And if that's not bad enough, Chrysler will not do warranty work on your American Jeep, you will have to drive back to the states for that.

Re: Price increase in Canada

Re: Price increase in Canada

At current exchange it wouldn't be worth it; but I did consider buying new or 1.5 years old in USA and then taking a chance on warranty. I mean when our dollars were on par, the US jeep was at least $10,000 cheaper (new). Can do a lot of "warranty" out of pocket for that difference.

Would never do that now though, especially not with the 8 speed.
