Resale prices on TT editions US vs CAN

I can’t get over the resale price difference on 2013-2014 TT editions in US vs in Canada

Their is a 2014 TT MT-6 with lows miles posted right now asking 43K USD

The exact same model and year with 30K miles has been for sale for 41K CAN for over a year now with zero interest. I am sure the dealer would take 35CAN any day. Which is under 30K USD

Am I missing something or are the ones located in the US special in some way?

it boggles my mind I paid peanuts for my 2013 TT with 8000 kms on it in 2014

I do have the link to the 2014 TT MT6 for sale here in Canada but for some reason it was deleted by the moderators
If anyone is interested just PM me

Re: Resale prices on TT editions US vs CAN

You still have to account that US buyers will have to pay Duties on the FJ, probably local taxes, inspections, titles, transportation...etc.


It all adds to and nearly eliminates the savings.

After Monday and Tuesday even the calender says WTF

Re: Resale prices on TT editions US vs CAN

The difference is still substantial even if you account for taxes
Take the 14 TT I mentioned its a 13K US difference that pays a lot of fees and taxes
Every country has some form of tax applied to car purchases.

Do you think the seller asking $43K knows there are 2 others 2014TT listed right now on the site asking $33K and $35K

Here's in Canada you could get a 2014 manual TT with very low kms for 34K Canadian so $26.5K USD

Crazy how a few hours drive will change the price of an identical vehicle drastically

For someone wanting a 1 of 2500 TTUE, the Canadian ones were not part of that total.

I believe they are, they have the same "badge" mentioning "one of 2500" on the dash in front of the passenger just like the ones you have in the States...

Not according to Toyota Canada. The pics of the TTSE show the TT badge. Apparently 150 TTSEs were sold in Canada.
