I am hoping they are not that desperate to falsely declare their own car to have that design flaw... but one never knows

Seriously...this is getting ********....this will be the next thing that we need to demand our government works on fixing. Basically, the GOC needs to take firm action against ******** manufacturers like this and basically say to them that if they want to do business in our country that they will not be allowed to pursue the Canadian consumer with such agression...and this is exactly what it is...blatent anti-competitive behavior designed to contribute towards boxing the Canadian consumer into a corner with no where to go....call my statements dramatic but this is how I see...

Jesus this rots me...ac328 wrote: ↑Agree with ya there. I may move in the next few weeks to grab the car while I still can. I wanted to wait because my current car's lease still has 7 months to run, as well.
I just realized Infiniti is completely alone among luxury brands that allow both unrestricted sales to Canadians and a full warranty.
BTW I heard that one of the other things BMW makes you do upon import, as of this week, is you MUST replace the ENTIRE US-spec gauge cluster with a Canadian metric one at a cost of...drum roll....$1408 + tax!!! If you don't, no recall letter. What a load of BS. I really like their cars (have an X3 now) but this just pissed me off.
So the extra costs BMW imposes is about $2,500 now. Pure cash grab for their dealers.

Who the F do they think they are??!?!?!?!?!?
These types of decisions/enforcement are made by governments...not friggin car manufacturers...
I always have admired BMW product but I just could not possibly support such BS...Unless they back down on this crap in short order they will never see a penny from me...Always saw myself with a nice 3 series at some point but the arrogance is killing me....
Bleep you and the horse you road in on BMW...seriously...where do you get the nerve is what I would like to know...
Sorry guys...I know I said my rant was over in my previous post but... :-)

Hey man...keep on posting...I don't blame you...If we're allowed to benefit from the current dollar situation I don't see why you shouldn't be able too...You idiots in here that are on his case basically can't figure out what you want....One minute you're pissed at manufacturers and dealers for aggression against the consumer and then in the same breath your bitching against a guy that is helping our cause essentially...don't see the logic there but anyway...ManchSubaruDealer wrote: ↑I'm sick and tired of reading about people publicly critisizing my methods. I'm not going to name any names, but you know who you are. You're absolutely correct, I have ten posts, now eleven, and each and every one of them promotes myself. How much money have I saved RFD members? I've never claimed to be the only show in town. That's the thing about it, consumers can buy a new Subaru from whomever they want to. They choose to buy from me. Do you know why they buy from me? They purchase from me, because they don't get stuck at the border with bad or disorganized paperwork, because they save thousands, because they've heard great reviews about me. That's why they buy from me. Of course I'm making money off the sales, I don't work for free, nobody does. My pricing is always fair, always way below invoice and there are no surprises when dealing with me. For those of you who don't want me on this post anymore, why don't you ask how the 35 RFD members who love me feel about me being on this post? If this post is so bad, then stop reading it! It's that simple, and do yourself a favor. If you're going to mention your 5th grade kid in a post, have him proof read it for errors so you don't look like a fool. For those of you serious about buying a Subaru please contact me so I can help you save thousands...

These SOBs need to be put in their place. And you bring up a really good point. I am thinking exactly the same way you are on this. I am going to have a long memory on how the various manufacturers are behaving during this higher dollar time that we are experiencing. For me a quality vehicle isn 't enough any more. I want a manufacturer's business practices to exhibit as much quality or more than their vehicle(s)...If they do not then they will not be seeing my goddamn money on either side of the F'in border....
I am beyond sick and tired of these absolutely blatent tactics. Do what you want with your business presence in this country but get the hell out of my way when it comes to your standing in the way of my right to choose as a consumer. I recent you huge for it and I know many many close personal friends and relatives who feel exactly the same way....
I really think some of these manufacturers are underestimating the future impact their actions might have on their business in Canada. Your nerve and total disrespect for Canadians will not go unnoticed...
Cut your losses and deal with reality...
I fully agree with both of you. Manufacturers/businesses need to have quality products and as well as excellent business practice. Because of their poor behavior, I will never consider buying cars from BMW, Toyota and Honda!!!
