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.

@h20hunter

Why?

Not trying to argue....   Just don't understand why.

Thanks.

In texas they have a salvage title that declares the vehicle may only be used for parts or scrap. Keys are for driving,  not scrap. Certain members of this world don't care...they will rebuild and resell. Flood vehicles from out of state with a parts/scrap title don't get keys.

Interesting.   Thanks.

I remember a few years back there were a bunch of chevy pickups at Spauldings that went thru a flood - Mississippi, if I remember right.

I'm pretty sure they were selling them for rebuilds.

I looked at them.  Some you could see water stains in the interior.

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

I thought the newer vehicles were all treated with a coating to stop the salt from rusting the underbody...

IMO I wouldn't worry about the salt on the road as much as the de icer we put out. That will chew up your vehicle a lot quicker.

I bought a brand new Ford F 350 in Portland in 1994 and it was built in Ontario, Canada. I'm not sure if they still build trucks in Canada now though. Any auto built in Canada will have a VIN that starts with a 2. If it's built in Mexico, it will start with a 3. And cars built in the USA will start with 1, or 4, or 5.

But here's an article that explains why many Canadian autos and trucks are sold in the USA, New or used. Basically it is because of the exchange rate and local pricing differences. They can make a few thousand more selling them in the States instead of Canada.

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.

Washington uses salt and salt brine now so not much different buying local rigs in that part.

Yeah I saw one that would leave rust on the floor step of the door every time you would close it and it was only a few years old.
60% of the time, it works every time.

I bought a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 with 37k miles. While talking with the salesman I inquired about the warranty. He replied all rams have the 7/70.
We haggled, I walked away: he called three times with lower prices before we had an agreement. At signing the “manager” asks if I want a warranty?
I said no it is still covered. He says “No, it is used from Canada, they do not have the 7/70.”
I stood up and started to leave again. I was getting in my Chevy when the salesman comes running back out. He yells “we have a 100k mile warranty you can buy!”
I close my door and start my truck; he yells “we will pay 1/2 the cost!”
I sat there for a second then said “throw in new floor mats and you have a deal”
I know they make a lot of money of warranties, but I figured their offer was fair.
Anyway do not “assume” the warranty is the same on a used Canadian vehicle.

You are missing the point if you don’t actually buy it in Canada. Google buying a truck in Canada. With the exchange rate and the pricing of their trucks, you can save a lot of cash if you drive north
