Buying New Cars in Canada

  1. Hi All,

    I was just wondering if anyone has purchased a car in Canada, I saw something on the news last week that you can get the same car in Canada several thousand dollars cheaper. I will be going to Niagra Falls the end of this month and I am having such car fever, I crave a new volkswagen beetle.

    I have only bought cars in Canada, being that I live here, but don't you have to pay a pretty hefty duty if you buy a car here and then take it to the US?

    At least go to a state that doesn't charge sales tax.

    It's province, and the only one without sales tax is Alberta as far as I know, which is WAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYY west of Niagara falls.

    I was thinking of a state in the states. That way no duty is owed.

    My friend's sister did her training here and then moved to Texas. Apparently she had to go through SUCH a hassle when trying to get her Canadian car registred in the states. She had to fork out a lot of cash. Apparently there are also a lot of different standards in automobiles in both countries. Make sure you check this out first before buying.
