When you buy a new car from the USA they will not ship it to Canada. Cars or Trucks coming of the line for Canada are shipped with a NIVIS, and without this you can''t get the vehicle registered in Canada. Check this out first before buying a car from the US. Good luck Red

I was working at Wolfe Chevrolet in 2008 when a customer come to see the manager, he had bought a new caddy in the US and had it drop shipped to Vancouver but he could not get it registered as it didn't come with with a NVIS (new vehicle identification system), this document is needed for registering any new car. He called GM Canada and they said this doc is produced at the assembly plant for units that are sent to Canada and they couldn't help him.The story goes on but long and short was he sold it back to the US dealer. When I was at a training seminar GM trainers bought that issue up and we were told that GM USA is different from GM Canada and the cost of selling cars in Canada is more expensive than the US.

Gm Dealers buy used cars and trucks that are just a few years old so they can qualify for the Optimum Used Car program. Were almost all the repairs are covered by GM. Then they go on the lot, So only go to Dealers that have the Optimum Used Car program. ---Eric- Marry Christmas all

Also if you go in looking for a car that they don't have, if you talk to the manager about what car you want. They will get it for you with a small deposit that is refundable after you look at the car ( do not forget to Carfax, check it out very carefully.Thanks Eric
