meh not really, but im usually converting stuff thats on dealers lots and they have incredibily dum prices on everything, $9000 for something with a blue book value of maybe $3000. i think it works relativvely well, the other problem with using washington is that i imagine four wheel drive is not as important there so there would be a gap, where as more of a summer vehicle might be worth more down there than here. just my .02

and yes it is pretty nice hear. when did you live in kelowna?

I hear that for new vehicles, the prices between here and the states is alot different. A guy at work said he got a new toyota from the states, cost him 33 grand canadian, and if he would have bought it in canada, it would have cost him 47 grand. Not sure if it works the same with used or not though.

You know what I always do is go to autotrader.ca and compare similiar vehicles. Auto trader is well respected, and you can tell if a truck moves or not from the prices in there, and if the truck is in there for along time.

keep looking

autotrader, bargainfinder, kelley blue book are all good resources for checking prices, but nothing beats getting out there and looking at the real thing.
I was a GM guy, but bought a F-150 cause it was the best truck for the price. and from a dealer to boot.

At the AMA or BCMA (auto club) website they have access to the cdn. blackbook pricing that I use frequently. You may have to be a member though.
