My 525 Touring is 16 year old
My e30 M3 is 20 year old
My 2002 us 30year old

All these three cars are US imports and have never crashed them. I wonder who did the above study? A lobby of car manufacturers wanting to sell new cars? Come on. This is unrealistic.

I know LEE....tell me about it... 80 cars crashed with 1 fatality and 1 serious injury in 4 years out of 25,550 cars.. OUUUH watch out! This is obviously either insurance based survey or intended to kill importing of older cars....

the only reason that I found this is article is b/c I wanted to bring in an Alfa from europe.... and of course you can only bring in 3 ugly models 1994 - 1995. Fiat... hahahah... forget it... ALL inadmissible... why? because they weren't built for the USA... since when was Canada part of the USA?

Good useage of my tax dollars. How about you government buggers use it to fix the shitty roads that were probably a factor in those crashes.

Wow, this country is pathetic. When is someone in the government gonna step forward with a pair of bollox and tell these spineless twats enough is enough, we are sick of this shit. Stop ruining life for the rest of us!

As long as the car is looked after and kept in good mechanical shape, there shouldnt be any problem with it.

ive seen more honda accords and civics that have more rust that acutal body left on. They're younger than 15 years. so the government is telling me those cars are safe? Maybe ont should change its law so its like PEI where you need to get not only emissions done every 2 years, but also safety. Then come back with age of the car and its roadworthyness.

So why you guys so pissed? they're basically saying that "Older vehicles should be subject to the rules of the Registrar of Imported Vehicles, just as newer vehicles are." So as long as the car passes safety you should be good to go.

That's just it... I don't want the RIV program and the stupidity.... 15 years was the only exception to the rule to get a car into Canada that an enthusiast loves... ! If you subject these cars to the RIV, then that means BIG mods to the bumpers, lights, belts, and crap.... for example... why is it in Europe you can drive a FIAT 500 or Uno ( smaller than a smart car) and they drive FAST in Europe, but I can't even get that car into Canada? What about less emissions, the environment? Would I not be the doing the GREEN thing with a smaller car....that's why I am pissed.. it's all BULLSHIT!!

Look.... I work, I pay taxes... in a FREE country I should have the choice to drive a car like the Fiat and if I kill myself in it.... that's my choice..... to clean my guts up off the street is creating work which stimulates the economy anyways..

Canada is too in my FACE with rules and regulations that HAVE nothing to do with making a better society... and don't get me started on emission tests.. that's another scam...!

If the country's not free enough for you, you're still free enough to buy a plane ticket and gtfo.

a lot of times people import older versions of cars which laws forbid them from importing new ones (like skylines etc)

but wow, 80 cars out of 25,550... thats 0.31% (LOL not even 1%) over 4 years thats an average of 0.08% LOL, 1 FATALITY AND 1 SERIOUS INJURY ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

i think a higher percentage of people have died from an apple falling from a tree into their mouth thus choking to death

"you are free to do what they tell you."
heard it from a song. it's about the government and it's pretty true. no country is free cause the government restricts you from lots of things.
