Re: Why not more WK2's in Canada?

Also worth asking, has anyone ever seen a factory or dealer incentive or discount on a Canadian mid/up scale WK2 ?? I watched for a year and a half and saw nothing.

"Sir if you tilt your head to the left and let your eyes blur the free power windows on that $60K SUV could be seen as a deal.."

Was a coin toss last summer between ordering a new 2014 or zipping down to the land of the free and picking up a 6 month old 2013. The 2014 won and I'm not sorry but if things were even slightly different next time I'd make the purchase in the south. 10K in the difference buys a lot of repair even without the warranty.

I had a difficult time here in Edmonton buying my Jeep and getting my Fleet discount because I was told that the GC sells so good here in Edmonton that they did not want to loose money selling me a GC at Fleet price.

Angry Re: Why not more WK2's in Canada?

What taxes are we talking about? In ON.,we pay the HST on the purchase price. There is no duty payable on vehicles made with the first number of the VIN being a 1, 3, or 5 brought into Canada, IIRC.

Free trade eliminated the Canada MFG.'s sales tax and the auto pack as well. This was to allow the free flow of goods and services between Canada and the USA. Aren't the car companies restricting the flow of goods by not allowing one to cross the border and purchase a new unit and importing it? This also was the case with Harley's around 1990 or so.

What is the Sherman Act? Isn't what they are doing is somewhat along the act was to prevent.

Agreed, currency differences do enter in to the cost differences. For a number of years we did have parity on exchange rates.

In 2010 we looked at a Camaro SS convertible, made in Oshawa, ON., US $40,000, Canada $48,000 or 25% more in Canada. So we didn't buy one! Dollars at par.

Also, why do we have to pay extra for certain colours while the US doesn't? Gouging?

A question: If the car is on the MSO but has had some use is it still a "new" car if you buy it?
