Hey Guys


I was wondering if you have imported your TSX into Canada from the US (preferably 2006 model) to share the info of what needs to be converted to this model?


I've called Riv.CA and they refuse to divulge what needs to be modified [img]smileys/smiley6.gif[/img]and head office in Canada says that they don't regulate or put restrictions so they don't have that info.


I'm just hoping that someone has the form 2 (?) that shows a list of modifications that needs to be done to the vehicle in order for it to be brought up to comnpliance.


Hope you can list it here and share with everyone and if possible let me know what was the $$ that you had to spend in order to get all the modifications done.


Thanks in advance!


Jeff

I was just wondering the same thing. We have a very bad deal on cars in this country. If there was a way to import a car from the US I would in a moment.

From reading the link above, I get the impression that the importer would have to pay tax as the car is made in Japan. For cars made in the US, I think it might be less tax.

In any case, we pay more here for no good reason; are prices are artificially high now that our dollar is up just as the prices were artifically low when our dollar was low. What ever happened to market forces dictating the cost of goods?

If you are stuck buying a car here, there are a few sites that can help:

http://www.apa.ca/
http://carcostcanada.com/1/en/default.asp
http://www.cars.com/go/index.jsp
http://crcanadacars.org/default.asp

All of the above will sell you a report which shows the wholesale pricing (what the dealer is charged for the car) and the holdback (the credit a dealer is given)

At the end of the day, the sticker price of a car has no bearing on reality. From what I've read, the best thing to do is to offer at or just below wholesale pricing and bargin up. The reports you buy also claim to include information on rebates (which I would imagine are used by some dealers to play with pricing)


Good luck to us all!
