Canadian dollars are different than our American greenbacks. Hey, you Canucks, what do those prices equate to in American pocket change that we relentlessly blow on our never ending pursuit to remain children??
i paid 10,400 bare bones plus txs=12,000(15%) for a 2004 3 weeks ago. that is approx 7000 us. rincons are so expensive a 2004 grizzly is 8900 or 9300 for a 2005 both come with a winch.but honda is honda!
You would have to pay GST on the purchase price in canadian dollars for sure,,, there is likley some duties to be paid as well.
The machine needs to be admisible into your province, this is somthing that you want to find out in advance, $182.00 federal inspection fee applies.
If its assemble in the USA there is no duties owed, if its assembled outside of north america there is a %6.1 duty
finaly, PST is paid on the machine at the time its lisenced in your home province.
There may be restrictions in each individual province as the gauge cluster may not be accepted under the off road vehicel act, you may be permited to replace the gauge cluster with the metric unit....
So... lets look at this,
so if we paid $6500.00 USD that = $8,087.30 CDN X 7% GST (Goods and Services Tax) = ($566.12) = 8653.42 + 182 (federal inspection fee) = $8835.42 this is pretty close to what I paid for my Rincon.
Im pretty sure that the ATV's are assembled in the USA so there should be no duty. but if there is, 8835.42 * 6.1% = 14224.03 cents.
now you have to include your travel expenses and everything else associated to the trip...
in addition to the fact that you bought it at one dealer, and now your going to try and get warranty at another...although technicaly thats OK and within the rules of the warranty, how hard do you think that dealer is going to work for you if you didnt even buy the machine from them...
