Gas Tax aka Green Levy Fee

Gents,

Here in Canada we have green levy fees on cars that slurp gas.

It was my understandings that a $3k fee was built into the MSRP.

I'm supposed to take delivery tomorrow and my dealer just tacked on a $1k green levy fee. Sounds like double dipping.

Does anyone know?

Down here, a gas guzzler tax is imposed if the vehicle's EPA fuel economy numbers as listed on the sticker are below the standards established for the vehicle. That tax does appear as an item on the window sticker and part of the total MSRP.

Does your window sticker state anything like that up in Canada?

That is correct. The green levy is added on after the fact. There was never a $3k fee built into price. When the 2012 came out there was actually a $2k green levy but the new 8 speed has helped bring that down to the $1k levy.

Strange. Car cost canada shows a $3k green levy as part of dealer invoice and MSRP.

The green levy is not built into Canadian sales price, it is added on after the fact, that's exactly how it was on my invoice.
