    XTS proce

    I just returned from Palm Springs Ca. The XTS base price in PS was $44073 US. The base price in Vancouver BC Canada is $48995. Both prices do not include destination charges. With the CDN/US dollar hovering at par and so-called free trade, why do we pay more for this vehicle in Canada? Also, as previously reported iPad! Hmmmmm.....made in Canada...but more expensive. Looks like I will buy in the US and import the vehicle myself.

    You will have to ask your Canadian politicians why US company items cost more in Canada. I sold two motorcycles to Canadians who imported them themselves and saved about 3500 $$ on each bike. I got my price and they saved themselves a bunch of money. US politicians are severely retarded; I guess, Canadian politicians are equally retarded. Oh yes, I apologize for the politically incorrect use of the word retarded, but I am sure you get my drift.

    A GM dealer in the U.S will not sell a Canadian a new car. They are more than happy to sell you a used car, but, unless you have a U.S. address, ( a good friend,maybe?), brand new to Canadians ain't gonna happen.

    Delivery charges in Canada ($1,595) are also considerably higher than in the US. I assume when C$ was going south they increased the Canadian price to make up for the FX difference, but didn't change it when the C$ went up. Well, gasoline/diesel is more expensive (higher tax) so transportation cost is slightly higher but not $600. But the corporate tax rate is lower in Canada. So what can we do but refusing to buy at least certain items (I refuse to buy a new pocket books in Canada which are dutyfree) and push our political masters.

    N.B. It's my understanding delivery charges in either countries do not differ based on location, i.e. in US. whether Detroit or Hawaii in Canada wether Toronto or Vancouver, i.e. the customer close to the factory pays for the one farther away.
