rodbaxter, having the car checked out is sound advice, I've been seriously considering driving it to the MB dealership for a check-up. I found the car on www.trader.ca
for $16950 CND, but I've managed to get it down to $15300 (hoping to reduce that by anouther 1K)
As for buying a car off ebay and importing it I don't know anybody that has done that.
This URL might offer some info:
I suspect the cheapest way to transport a car, either from the US or cross Canada would be by rail. A friend had a car shipped from Vancover to Hamilton for $500, mind you that was 8 years ago so add abit for inflation and adjust for distance. CP or CN web sites might be able to quote you a price.
Best of luck and happy hunting.
Cheers for now.
