Price of Car In U.S. Vs. Canada

Canadian automobile buyers are getting ripped off (and they probably don't even realize it). Most people will agree that, for example, a 2006 Acura TSX purchased in Canada should cost approximately the same in the United States after taking into consideration things like the currency exchange rate.

In Canada:
The manufacturer's suggested retail price for a 2006 Acura TSX Automatic Transmission is C$37,200.00.

In United States:
The manufacturer's suggested retail price for a 2006 Acura TSX Automatic Transmission is U$27,890.00.

Currency Exchange Rate Used by Automobile Dealers:
CND $1.00 = USD $0.750

Actual Rate as at 14:00 on Wednesday, May 17th, 2006:
CND $1.00 = USD $0.898

The exchange rate used by automobile dealers is no where close to the the actual exchange rate! The case is similar for other automobiles also.

If the actual exchange rate is used, then the cost of the automobile mentioned above, in Canada would only be C$31,058.00. So the differential of C$6142.00 is pocketed by Canadian automobile dealers as extra profit.

As long as Canadians don't voice their concerns, they will continue to be ripped off ...
