Hey i read in the other topic that these trucks are 10000 less in canada. Now is that US dollar or the Canadian Dollar? For example if the truck was 30000 in the united states would it be 20000 in Canada or what? Thats if you can clear that one up

My truck, priced out on Doge.com, is $39,620 US which is $61,672 CDN. MSRP on my truck is $49,575 CDN which would equate to $31,849 US. :)

Even better...I paid $44,652 CDN after all charges except 7% sales tax. That translates to $28,684 US :o.

I believe it's illegal for a Canadian dealer to sell to a customer who lives in the US.
I also know one dealership around here who got shut down because they were buying Canadian cars and trucks and selling them down here for a hefty profit.

That's right Doomgaze...big trouble for that. The rule or rule of thumb is/was 6 months registration in Canada first, but I don't know the actual legalities of it [eyecrazy].

It has been known to happen! There's been word around here of people being offered good bucks to go into a dealer, buy a new vehicle, hand it over to the folks south of the 49th.

There are folks in Canada who are paid to put a bunch of miles (kilometres) on a new truck so it can be shipped across the border and sold in the US.I believe that once a truck has some 15000 miles on it , it is considered "used" and can go across the border without restrictions for resale.

But is all changed for 2003 models. First of all, it is not against the law for a dealer to ship a new truck to the states or knowingly sell it to someone who is. The people who get excited about it is DC. The old rule used to be they wouldn't care if it was in service in Canada for a minimum of 6 months...but for the 2003's, if it surfaces in the states anytime after it is sold there is ZIPPO for warranty. They will conduct spot audits on dealers and those found to be guilty of exporting are fined big $ by DC. I know of one dealer who knowingly sold A LOT of trucks for export and DC dinged them for just under a million...ouch. They've audited us before, but we're squeaky clean(not worth the risk). Their dealer agreement forbids them from selling or knowingly selling to people vehicles for export. cya
