#416 of 453 Re: Help needed - import Canada Kia Soul to US [pamarama]

It is going to happen to me as well.
I am crossing US Border at Detriot -Windsor from Canada with my Canadian Honda Civic.
I have a recall clearance letter from Canadian Honda Manufacture, and waiting for a compilance letter from US Honda Manufacture.
I don't have time to wait the compilance letter from US Honda Manufacture.
I am wondering if I cross the border without this letter or not.
Do you have any experience?

#421 of 453 Selling Canadian Honda Civic in US

I have a 2005 Honda Civic that I imported from Canada to US a few years back. I did the necessary paperwork and it's registered in TX right now. Presently I am looking at selling the thing...can I do so? The speedometer and more importantly the odometer are in KMs (at least the speedometer has both units listed...not the odo though). Do I need a new odometer? Can someone who has done this whole selling process before give me some suggestions?

I recently became a permenent resident in the US living in Texas. I am working on importing my 2007 Honda Civic. The car is already in the US. When I originally drove into the US it was as a visitor so nobody inspected my car or anything for import. Now I want to be able to register and insure the car in Texas. I already have the compliance letter. I have been told I now have to take my car to a place called Wallace Labs, in Houston for testing and such, and pay $3400 to Wallace Labs before I can register the car in TX. Does anybody know if this is correct?

After trying to obtain a letter of compliance from General Motors of Canada,i was informed that they no longer issue these letters. So be advised,should u desire to register a Canadian General Motors car in the U.S.,I was forced to consult a broker that knows all the ins and outs of this process,the cost for me was 350. dollars. But lucky for me ,i am located near the Canadian Border as is the broker which made the process much easier. Money well spent for me.

Do I need a letter of compliance to bring a U.S. made vehicle purchased in Canada to bring back into the U.S?
The car, a 1970 Dodge Challenger was originally purchased in the U.S and brought into Canada....so now it is being purchased in Canada and being returned to the U.S.
How do I do the registration? Can the registration be transferred without going to DMV in Canada?
If so and I planning on driving it across the border into Detroit to be shipped to Arizona...what do I do about registration and license?
What is the process I have to go through to cross the border?
Thank you for the help
