Amnesty for Cars Purchased in the US

December 2nd, 2007 by Potato

Well, it looks like the over a thousand Canadians who took advantage of the strong dollar in the last few months and bought cars in the US, only to be turned away by an overly specific rule on immobilizers will get amnesty and be allowed to register their vehicles. This will hopefully keep pressure on the auto makers to keep lowering their prices in Canada. I doubt we’ll see pricing on par, even if the currencies are, but the prices should drop to within 6-10% so that it’s no longer worth the effort… and if they don’t, then I’ll probably be planning a trip down south when it’s finally time to let my car go…
