Importing Vehicle Canada to USA
I want to import a 2011 C300 from Canada to the USA. The car is my mothers and is in near perfect condition with very low mileage (hence why I am trying to go through this process instead of doing a CPO purchase locally).
Mercedes Benz Canada issued me a compliance letter but it states that the vehicle is equipped with a Tire Pressure Loss System (TPLS) and not a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).
So the vehicle is not compliant for the USA standards/rules. [FMVSS #138]
They also stated that a retrofit kit is not available from Mercedes.
Does anyone know who can perform this type of conversion and if it is even possible?
I've contact 3 registered importers and all have told me I cannot import this vehicle.
