I think I can answer that question...it's simply a matter of economics and 
greed for profit. In a perfect world the prices of most big ticket items 
should be close to the same on both sides of the border , however over the 
past 2 decades at least the Canadian dollar could not support equal pricing 
for obvious economic reasons...now that the Canadian dollar is at par (above 
and below depending on the day) the auto makers have tried to ignore this 
and did not lower the cost of Canadian automobiles untill public pressure 
became too much for them to bear. Importing a vehicle fron the USA is not a 
problem however there are a few cars that are not permitted to be sold in 
Canada because of regulations , the remainder have to undergo slight 
modifications and once that has been completed they are permitted to enter
