Here is what I got this morning:
EX goes up $600 CDN, not $1500 CDN
EX-L is an additional $2000 CDN
2002 EX is now $34,900 CDN List
2002 EX-L is $36,900 CDN List
RES and NAV are NOT offered in Canada.
I finalized my deal this morning and received just under $2000 CDN off List for a RRP EX-L. (Roughly $22,500 US for an EX-L)
The surprise - it arrives next week!!! My dealer is also allowing me to pass on the RedRock Pearl if I don't like it and I can grab a Mesa Beige EX-L within September.
I think you must show your license (not positive). Yes the dealer must collect taxes such as PST (provincial tax), GST (&% Federal tax), other taxes such as $100 A/C and tire tax (approx. $48). The last two are in Saskatchewan, not sure what other provinces are doing in these areas. Yes, our dealerships usually tries to sneak in a $75 to $100 BS fee of some type - can anyone say "last minute mark up".<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by phoenix2001:
I have some questions on buying a car as a Canadian resident. I assume a Canadian license is required to be shown.
Does the dealership collect the PST when you buy the vehicle? I understand that unlike the US, you still need to bring the car over the the Registry Agent to register the car and pay the registration fees. Is that when you receive your license plate?
Is there any legitimate fees a dealer will collect other than the price of the car and GST? Doc fees, ADM, prep are all BS as far as I am concerned in the US.
From what I have been reading here, it seems a lot of people have called up a dealership, sealed a deal on the phone, was mailed the paperwork to fill out and only days later went to the dealership to pay and pick up the car.
Thanks. It would be great anyone could walk me through an example of how they purchased a car and a listing of the fees.</font>
