Frequently Asked Questions
Can I purchase a New or Used vehicle from Toyota of Keene?
U.S. Toyota dealers may only export pre-owned Toyotas into Canada. Here at Toyota of Keene we have an expansive inventory of Pre-Owned Vehicles that are basically brand new!
Can I trade in my vehicle?
Unfortunately, issues with vehicle titles and validation of miles do not permit us to accept international trade-ins. Most of our Canadian customers sell their cars locally and then purchase their Toyota vehicles from Toyota of Keene.
What paperwork is required to cross back into Canada?
That's our job. We will prepare and provide you with all the necessary paperwork to complete the transaction at the border. Contact us for a complete list of required documents.
How do I get started?
Start browsing our website now, then call 1-800-421-0909 to get started. Our import specialists will guide you through the entire process.
Can you provide financing? What are the payment terms?
Due to international bank laws, we are not permitted to finance cars being imported into Canada. Many of our Canadian customers are either self-financed or seek financing through Canadian financial institutions. This would be similar to finding your own financing for a vehicle purchased in Canada. We provide your lending institution with the VIN number and any other important information they may need. When the vehicle is picked up payment is due in full by a certified bank draft (in U.S. dollars) or by wire transfer.
What Toyota vehicles meet import guidelines?
Many late model, Pre-Owned Toyota's contain the required Immobilizer Key. You also must have Daytime running lights. No additional maintenance modifications are required. Call us for details on many other choices of vehicles.

* Before running the calculator, be aware that:
- Canada levies a $100.00 "air conditioning fee" on all vehicles with air conditioning, whether they are imported or not.
- The same Canadian taxes you would be expected to pay when purchasing/registering a vehicle purchased in Canada would be paid on your imported vehicle, only you will be paying based on the U.S. purchase price, not the Canadian price - a significant savings!
- Duty fees. There are no duties under NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) on U.S. built Toyota's.
