It was actually a very simple process, if you are prepared. The Sky meets all Canadian standards without exception, so there were no hiccups.How hard was it to register it in Canada?
I exported the car from the U.S at @ 9:00 am and by 3:30 pm I was putting new Ontario plates on it in my driveway. It had been exported, imported, form 1 submitted, Fed tax paid, RIV fee paid, form 2 returned , Fed inspection done at Can. Tire, Safety done (5 minutes) and back to the Ministry to pay Prov. taxes and get new plates and new ownership form. 1 week later I received the Canadian certification stickers to put on inside of door and everything was complete.
The canadian warranty kicks in when the car reaches 6 months and 12,000 K from the time the car originally hit the road (in Florida). I was actually a few weeks and few Kil. short when I needed service , but the local Saturn manager was great and allowed it in. The car thus became a Canadian car warranty wise.
It was a little stressful at the time because I had never done it before, but in hindsite it was a breeze. Gave up 8000 kilometres and a couple of days of running around, but in the end I had the exact car that I had been dreaming of and had of saved well over 14 grand off purchase as the dollars were at even strength at the time
