Check this out all...rtto5588 wrote: ↑Below invoice doesn't mean a dealer would be selling at a loss..it means the dealer won't make as much money..if you buy a car at a dealership and it's below apa price or invoice..generally, the dealer does not lose money..they actually gain due to holdbacks and everything from the car manufacturer...if they were to sell 2g less then invoice, yes they probably will be losing money..but 100 below..not the case..

If i import a "non-american" brand car but the car is actually assemble in North America. Do I need to pay duty at custom?
For example, Acura MDX and Mercedes ML SUV are assembled in USA. Their VINs start with 2 and 4 respectively.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

(PG 21) dont need to "avoid" it because you are EXPORTING0302alen wrote: ↑If it is manufactured in North America - no duty.
How will you know that? If VIN starts with 1-5 - no duty.
If it starts with W, J or something else - 6,1 % duty.
Will you be charged a local tax in US, and how to avoid it? (page 21)
Why you need to tell to US dealer that you are exporting the car? (page 22)
What is the only charge in US you need to pay? (page 22)
How to transport it to Canada - drive it by yourself or shipping? (page 23)
When is the shipping a good option? (page 24)
What are the three options you have? (page 25)

If you don't tell a US dealer you are exporting the car, HE IS REQUIRED to charge you sales tax (unless you work for the US military).
There are no "extra" or "hidden charges" when buying a car in the US.
If you're driving the car, you will need to pay for temporary plates for EVERY state you drive through.
Legally you can't use US temporary plates in Canada and are required to purchase Canadian provincial transit plates. I confirmed this with both my insurance carrier (State Farm) and my provincial transportation office (MTO for me).
If you want to PM me and feel compelled to share in your savings by giving me money for providing this information to you, that's entirely up to you.
Since Christmas is coming up, why not make a donation to a local kids hospital or hospice instead in the name of RFDers everywhere.
Thanks for all your PMs guys. Shame on the car dealers (you know who you are) who insist on telling me this blog is full of misinformation.

There are a lot of people on the subaru forum that have done the importing and I hate dealers.Monsieurmaggot wrote: ↑I'm curious to know, is it possible to get an idea of how many people out there have actually followed our advice and purchased from the US SINCE seeing this post?
I received a note from a person (dealer I bet) today saying that the impact I am making is relatively insignificant to the Canadian marketplace.
Maybe true, but I must imagine that the dealers are also reading my posts diligently.
With 130,000+ reads and close to 1000 responses, I must imagine at least a couple of dozen RFDers have taken my advice.
