Pros and cons. Used pickups sold at dealers in washington

Specifically from Canada?
There are metric crap tons of Canadian used vehicles at dealerships now. My buddy was looking for an F-150 and he was sending me VIN #'s to run and I am confident that at least 80% of them were sold in Canada originally. It doesn't really make any difference in my opinion. I'd have an inspection done by an independent party just to be safe but other than that, no immediate concerns. What was alarming to me was that I'm pretty sure he sent me 10-12 vin's and I found 2 that were salvages. That sucks, especially being sold at a dealer.

It's a non-issue with Ford.  Can't speak for other manufacturers but I don't believe it's an issue there either.

My daughter and her husband bought a Ford Escape from Canada in the US with a factory warranty still left on it. So far no problems.

Make sure you don't get one that only uses metric gas.   

That stuff is expensive!

Yes. Super high demand right now too, and there's a lack of supply.

This seems to be an issue when the exchange rate is good and there are supply issues. This has been common in the Skagit valley area and north for a long time.

You should see the price of metric muffler bearing fluid.  :yike:

Organic is trendy right now. Side note, I've already refused to make keys for Texas area flood vehicles that are being brought into the area.

We bought a Canadian truck from a Washington dealer a few months back.
Only issue we’ve had is our mirrors say” Les objets en miroir sont plus proches qu'ils ne paraissent .”

 :chuckle:, as far as I was told and discovered , legitimate dealerships bringing vehicles in , go through quite the process to make sure it is on the up and up.

Canada does use salt on their roads, we turned down a couple that had the guts rusted up.
“I don’t know man, he’s in a really nast.....” “

“Boom!”

I bought my GMC Sierra used and it was from Canada, I seached it high and low before buying it because every other one I saw from Canada was plagued with rust.... from the road salt, like rust everywhere underneath, some dealers tried to paint over it. I ended up with a real clean, low miles rig but I had to look for awhile.  On the plus side it has an engine block heater but you can't turn off the headlights if driving. All vehicles are like that in Canada
60% of the time, it works every time.
