so a car made in the NAFTA would be price + 14% tax + all fees?
and a car made in japan or some place elsewhere would be price + 6.125% duty + 14% tax + all fees?
that wouldnt be a hot deal anymore.
CAD cost for civic: total $27,251.70 MRSP - can probably get it for 26000ish after dealings
US cost for same civic: $19,010 USD = ~$21,601.11 CAD x 1.14 = 24625
so savings will be approx 2,000?
all that trouble for 2,000?....i think i'll just get it here.
correct me if i'm wrong.
Target Price in USD (check www.edmunds.com and put in the car you want)
multiply by 1.1 USD to CAD conversion rate
= Price in Canadian dollars
The taxes and fees you pay is:
6.1% nafta for cars built outside north america
8% pst for ontario
$100 air conditioning tax
$209 riv package fee
However, from earlier on this thread, Honda and Acura won't honour their warranties if you import it from the states....so it might not be worth it to buy a Honda/Acura.
Warranties for the following dealers are valid in canada though: Toyota/Lexus, Nissan/Infiniti, BMW, Mercedes, Ford.
I'm not sure about the other dealers.
Also, for compact cars like the civic, the price differnece isn't as big so it might not be worth it...
hope that helps
