    Bringing cars into The US from Canada

    First you need to drive it over the border from Canada to the US and then you're done. If the owner wishes to sell it then....it is sold!

    On a related note, what does it take to get a new car from the US into Canada? (What kind of duties/taxes are added?)

    The way the CAN dollar is doing it may be cheaper for us Canadians to buy cars in Buffalo versus Toronto

    Any vehicle imported into canada must be on the approved for import list. Kit cars are not allowed.
    At the border you pay an import fee.
    Once car is in canada you must complete a federal inspection (fee paid at border).
    If the car passes a federal inspection then it must pass a provincal inspection.
    Each province is different as to the fee and items that vehicle must comply with.
    Expect no help or explainations from any government offical or agency as every time you talk to a different person at one of the registries or customs you get a different answer.
    To put it simply its a very frustrating procedure and expensive.
