Does anyone know if a Toyota used car warranty is transferred over?

Yes the warranty does transfer over without any issues.

Original warranty does transfer over.

CPO warranty does not transfer over.

Extended warranty bought at Toyota dealer does transfer over.

try these guys for a Toyota

http://www.toyotakeene.com/canadian.htm
Thanks for the site lonewolf.

This dealership does sell to Canadians, I am still trying to work something out so that I do not pay close to MSRP. I mean they realize that no one else is selling and hence I guess they are probably sticklers to their price.

Still talking lets see how it goes. If anyone else has purchased a Toyota from the states in recent months, please post the dealership or IM their information to me. I am willing to go further south if the pricepoint is attractive.

Regards,

Don't forget to mention CarsWithoutBorders, when dealing with the folks at Keene, they will give you a $50 Gas Coupon as part of any sale! It might not be much but it all adds up in the end.

Hi all, been following this thread for awhile and I've got a situation where I'm getting a new car shipped from California to Montana (Sweetgrass) so I can pick it up. I've got the Original Cert of Ownership, Bill of Sale and Odometer Declaration. The the California dealer, however, won't issue me a temporary permit and I called Montana's DMV and they won't issue one either because I'm not a US/Montana resident.

Is it ok to transport the car to the border with just those documents? I'll of course setup insurance.

I've heard all you need is the MCO... do they even check for your permit at the border? (either side)

I was in similar situation, I got my car delivery at Detroit Border and then got it towed from a Windsor towing company. Cost me $280 to tow from detroit to windsor about 3 hrs. of work.

If you have insurance and a copy of the invoice you should be able to get an in transit permit for the vehicle in Alberta. It will only be good from Coutts/Sweetgrass until Edmonton, but it will do the trick. I believe the price is $25.

I called BMW and Audi
and both companies said that any Canadian wishing to purchase Brand New BMW/AUDI care are welcome to do so south of the Border. Last November the BMW bastards said it wasn't cool... now they say it is ok..

When i pressed the guy from BMW about why we need to replace the instrument cluster on a 3-Series, he had no answer for me. The American cluster has both KM and MIles on it, in big fonts... so why is there a need to change them?

Also, when i called a canadian BMW dealer about the instrument cluster he was less than helpful :) he acted like a POS.... was bragging that even though BMW Canada has no rules in place, no BMW USA dealer will sell a brand new car to a Canadian... hmmm collusion? Someone needs to get their asses sued...

I'm so tired of these bastards........ i hope the greed chokes in their throats. :)

Why? I had my Audi delivered from IL to MI, and picked it up at a Detroit truckstop, drove it over. only paid to have it shipped from IL.

Agree on the need for a suit. Biggest problem with BMW is getting recall letter - for that you will need to spenf mucho $$ at a Canadian dealer. Feds need to keep relaxing rules to prevent this highway robbery.

Have not been DOS'ed, but the spammers keep coming to the site and editing pages. I think it is just computer robots, I am not sure how to block them 100% but I did put a captcha system on there so if anybody tries to add an external link, they will have to enter the characters from an image and prove they are a real person.
Unfortunately I work ~55 hours a week but if anybody notices any spam or weird stuff going on, you can PM me here(I can't keep up with the thread) and I'll immediately get it taken care of. :)
