I am not in Canada and not going to be.

I've tried to sell it about a year ago and couldn't get squat. No one wanted it. Similar vans with less problems and mileage are going for $1500 here most.

Maybe we should start smuggling operation and exchange our Caravans for Lexuses from Canada.

great idea when the dollar was higher there were a lot of guys driving trucks and cars then selling them in the usa after 6 months
after 6 months the gst was still returnagle and the car was concidered used thus no import duty. the high us dollar made it cheap to buy canadian and profitable to sell them to the us ,

That I am brilliant when it comes to buying cars?

The farmer is right. You can learn a lot from the local junk yard. I have seen some pretty nasty messes in small cars (particularly Hyundai Pony/Excel) and I have seen some pretty miraculous survivals from Lexus and Mercedes owners. Airbags and crumple zones work wonders, especially when coupled with steel safety frames and solid construction. Bigger always wins.
