I should mention that NO costs were incurred to bring to Canadian compliance and dealer I purchased from in US did not charge anything to supply Recall Clearance letter and Service History.
You're probably comparing to a Canadian car at dealer list
which is not the same thing. Also, have you even compared to private sale and save on the taxes? We can twist numbers any way to make ourselves feel better about our purchases. It's human nature.
