Hi All, I have not posted on these forums for a few years since getting a different vehicle four years ago. We originally had a 2001 and then a 2004.
I just got back from NY last week and brought back a 2010 Tech and Ent package mdx. The import process was simple and uneventful. I ended up saving approx $11k compared to buying it here. I bought a certified pre owned from an Acura dealer and am very happy with it so far. The dealer did say that they would honour the US warranty regardless of where the car is licensed. So the way I look at it is that if I have a minor problem then I will pay. If it is a major problem then I will drive, tow or drag it back to NY. My thought is that Honda US has no right to void your warranty for a US vehicle for service in the US unless they could prove that the export has been detrimental to the vehicle.
Bottom line is that importing is easy and the saving enabled me to get a newer vehicle for the same money. I am happy.
