The car is a lot more expensive in Canada however, so you're comparing horse shoes and hand grenades, neither one is close to the other.

Ok,Sorry my mistake; I didn't see he was from Canada. Then, it is a different story..

My intention was to compare MSRP prices rather than features because I was given the same amount of discounts on any Focuses that were on the lot at that time

I paid 20k after rebates for a mtx SE with the 201A package, I probably shoulda got a sunroof for that price but the 1.9% financing from fmc for someone with less then prefect credit though made up for it! Overall I'm very happy with my purchase. Thank you fmc I will forever be loyal to you.

Although you have to ask yourself why it is more expensive.

The conversion rate is 1.00 US Dollars to 1.05 Canadian dollars. Canada must tax the hell out of everything there.

Not sure if/why Canada is more expensive... In Alberta we pay 5% in sales tax.

Not sure about any other taxes/fees/etc.

Extended warranties are never a good buy on pretty much anything. It's just another way to separate you from as much money as possible. Same for the paint treatment and interior treatment. These are where dealers make a lot of money. And if you fiance the warranties or the rest you pay interest on that for the life of the loan, another bad idea. From a personal point of view. I never bought any of that stuff and never needed it and I've been buying new cars since 1975.
