Importing a US HR-V into Canada?

I'm wondering if it will be economically feasible and practical to buy a HR-V in the States and import it to Canada. What happens to the warranty and 3 year roadside assistance ? Is the 1.8l HR-V engine made in Japan and will it be liable for duty at the border? Will the present 17% exchange rate nullify any chance of saving money on the car? Will buying the car in a no-tax state (e.g. New Hamphire) be more benefitial? I'm hoping other forum members who have had experience in buying Honda products in the US and importing them to Canada will add their knowledge to this thread.

As pointed out above, we Canucks are actually getting a pretty sweet deal on the HR-V, we just have to be a bit patient. Especially on this forum, you're not likely to get much sympathy, especially from Americans that would love to have some of the features we get.

Back when our dollar was high there was a booming cross-border trade in cars, until several makers, including Honda, made their US dealers stop selling to Canadians. I wonder if Honda Canada has the same restriction on selling to Americans?

One question: did they let you test drive it? I'm thinking of making a trip down, but it's only worth it to me if I can test drive.

I know you weren't talking about me....... :D

Bah humbug! I'll take the opposite, import Canada HRV to US!
