Importing Diesel Smart from Canada to Washington State

4 posts in this topic

I'm looking at a diesel Smart car on craigslist in Vancouver, British Columbia.

 

I want to register it in Washington State.

 

Is this difficult to do?

I think it'd be nearly impossible.  The diesels say right on the certification sticker in the engine area that they're not intended for sale in the U.S.

 

Most grey market cars have been imported through Ohio or Florida.  Those states are apparently loose and fast with the rules.  Check with Washington DOL to be sure.

One other thing: the headlights on the Canadian cdi cars are E-Codes, not DOT.  Canada allows E-Code lights under its certification, but they're illegal in the USA.
