How many months are we allowed to stay in the U.S. coming from Ontario? I have heard six and seven months. Thanks, C. Edmonds Milton, ON Response: Ed: This is the most-asked question we get; the U.S. allows you to stay in the U.S. for a maximum of six months. Not 182 days or 183 […]

Dear Bird Talk: I read with great interest Ross Quigley’s editorial in your summer 2006 issue of CSANews. Could you possibly relay my comments to him, as well as a few queries I have about his car importing experience? I am also a bit of a car nut as well. Last fall I purchased a […]

Check Your Nuts and Bolts

Posted date : Nov 4, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, We are members of the CSA and read with interest your publication. One new point of interest to members may be regarding car/van tire rotation.
