Grumpy consumers, overzealous border officials, grandstanding politicians, and backpedaling carmakers

only GST needs to be paid at border.Albertan wrote: ↑Hey Guys,
I am thinking of bringing up an 05-06 Kia Sorento, as I mentioned previously. I am buying in Washington state and bringing it up through BC. However, I will be registering, insurring and driving the SUV in my home province of Alberta.
My question is - when do you pay PST on a vehicle brought up through BC? Do you pay @ Customs, or when you register? I hope it's at registration, because then I wont have to pay PST since I am an Albertan, just coming up through a PC Port of Entry.

Why do you want to put a blanket ban on all imports just because Toyota is giving you a hard time?

To all potential Toyota or GM buyers, beware of cars made at Toyota and GM's joint manufacturing plant, the New United Motor Manufacturing Inc. (NUMMI) in California.
A lawsuit is before the court to sue Toyota USA and GM by a whistleblower who alleges that management routinely deletes or downgrades her audits on defects.
Guess who am I rooting for in this case?

yes, i'd rather get something like a subaru or whatever instead of a car with an engine prone to sludge.

The fly in the ointment (a la truck crossing) that I see is that Customs filled out the Form 1 as part of the import process. Not sure that they would hand out a blank one before you have the export stamp from US Customs..TucDream wrote: ↑First time poster, long time lurker.
I plan to pick up my new ‘beca on Saturday, bringing it thru Blaine WA on Monday morning. I’d really like to get thru CT on Monday as well, and am wondering if I can speed up the RIV process to help make that happen.
What I’m thinking of is:
- picking up a Form 1 at the border on the way down (Thursday)
- online payment with RIV with the Form 1 case number (Thursday)
- email the Recall Clearance letter to RIV (Friday)
- Customs complete Form 1 & email to RIV (Monday morning)
- Me speak nicely to RIV to email Form 2 (Monday noon)
- CT inspection (Monday afternoon).
Any thots? Could this work?
The only real downside I could see is that if the Form 1 gets screwed up & I lose the RIV fee that is associated to it.
Btw, thanks to all who have blazed the trail for us. I think Canada has cornered the market on Diamond Grey Metallic 'becas!
