You can buy but the registrar of imported vehicles will force you to pay excise duty (you will have to drive to the border to do that, I think) and take the vehicle through FEDERAL and PROVICIAL inspection to get it to compliance with Canadian standards... then you are ready to get Canadian plates and use it!

If the title is American, I am sure you have to get the title changed with the state DMV. You can´t import a car in which you do not hold the title.

You can not owe money on the car either... you must own it 100%, but I am sure it won´t matter since you are buying it used.

I would suggest you just buy a car off a Canadian. Even if you are getting a deal, the hassles, plus import fees will soon make you wish you hadn´t bothered importing.
