You're gonna have to push to export the car.
OR another option is to talk to the State you are exporting from.
Perhaps they have a tax refund process. Maybe talk to a lawyer or a tax official in your state.
State your case. The dealer isn't playing nice, and your intention is to export and thus register and license the car in Canada.
Maybe they will understand your case and waive or refund the state tax you have paid. of course, talk to these guys first before committing to purchasing the car.
I am guessing the dealer doesn't want you to export the car because they want to sell you some warranty or extended service+warranty package. Or maybe they just want you to service the car at their dealership...I know that sounds funny, but dealerships have weird tactics and are not called stealerships for nothing...
Just fyi, my experience is limited in your situation, so the above may or may not work at all.

I had a similar experience trying to buy an X3. The dealer had agreed first to sell me and give a 30 temporary tag but... the day of signing , he changed his mind when his financial officer intervened. I cancelled! Nothing to do I am afraid but pay the tax . BMW and Acura are nasty!

Just FYI all MDX Acuras are made in Aliston, Ontario, CANADA....oh, and they are still over 12,000$ cheaper in the US!!!!

The more things change - the more they stay the same.
Back in 1999-2001, people were paying MSRP for "used" Canadian market Honda Odysseys and getting them for about $5K less than the MSRP price here in the US.

I bought a new car from an Acura dealer in the US and Acura wants to penalize me (not providing the necessary recall clearance letter and warranty tranfer) can we get in touch for advice? My email is tony608yahoo.com. Thanks

Good morning - I'm considering buying a 20 year old Bentley in the US and bringing it into Canada. I'd welcome any advice from folks who've done this in the past. Thanks very much.
