Default Acura TL Prices: Canada vs. United States

Does anyone know why the base price for an TL is so different between
the US and Canada?

US: around $33k ($33k / .9 = C$36.7k)
Canada: around C$42k

Thanks in advance.

Phil

It was the same thing wiht the RSX - S.

In canada it was like 32 000 Cdn
And in the States it worked out to around 26 000 CDN

We get screw the same on Yamaha accessories. There is probably a damn
good reason that has nothing to do with gouging.

Then, can't we just cross the border and buy one.
Duty is probably close to zero and the tax are the same as in Canada.
About $50.00 for a broker.
If the dealer want sell then one can buy one we little use.
What is wrong with this? Comments please.

Check out the warranty. I don't think Honda Canada will cover a car
bought in the US. Then again, I could be wrong.
