Canadian Dollar and new vehicle prices

With the Canadian Dollar jumping in value almost 10% compared to the US the past few months, do you think that North American new car prices may actually drop for the 2004 model year?

BTW - I am talking about the prices of vehicles sold in Canada.

I don’t think so – that’s when we (the USA, FoMoCo) suddenly like our own currency devaluation; we reap in more overseas profits as a percentage of the value of our dollar.

Also, there are a lot of GM, Chrysler, Ford, and Toyota in Ontario!

Not exactly what you’re looking for… but,
