Terry, yes. If you shop around there are deals to be had in the USA, even assuming 20% taxes (HST + Duty) and 500$ worth of bullshit fees (RIV, A/C fee, Crappy tire inspection fee). Remember you'd still pay HST on a used car, so the difference is just duty + fees.
IMO the best bang for your buck is a BMW made in North America (ie. X5 and X3) they have no 6.1% duty so you save a bunch.
PS - the Canadian Tire inspection is a joke lol they only checked for the daytime lights... nothing else.
