You cannot import a vehicle from the USA to Canada without an offical 'Recall Clearance Letter' from the manufacturer/corporate dealer.
MBUSA HQ will NOT issue this letter and have instructed their dealer network to do the same.
This makes it next to impossible to import your dream MB from the USA to Canada unless you are "in" with someone in a dealership down there. I am by no means saying it never happens, but if you look at the RIV list MB is the only manufacturer who's section just says 'SEE NOTES'.
Also keep in mind compliance/conversion issues (Baby seat mounting points, etc) and the fact your MB warranty is null and void as soon as you cross the border.
