I've read through some of the vehicle import threads and have found enough to know about the process, and where to go to find the paperwork etc. But I'm curious about where people have found is the best to actually go to get the vehicle (whether it be bike or car) in terms of what state and how you haggled.
I'm in the market for a new car, and while I've been looking at a vw jetta sport wagon (dont make fun, I need a place to throw all my skydive gear, but still want a fun ride), one of the options available in the states is not yet offered in canada (the 2.0t engine). For me then its not about going to the states to save money. Even with the current dollar hit, I think I could do about even, but rather to get the option I'd like on the vehicle I'd like.
The hope being that the fucked up usa economy would at least allow me a bit of a better bargain position, so I'm curious for those of you who've bought in the states, was it worth your time to go to oregon instead in washington, are there benifits to different states, even different locations within each state that might be more likely to offer discounts? How far were you able to chip off the dealer price?
Seeing as our dollar is shot right now, I'm trying to find all ways to at least save a bit of coin, or if its worth it until our dollar recovers a bit more.
reply's or pm's appreciated.
