Has anyone yet experienced any trouble getting warranty work done on US cars imported to Canada or in getting compensation from KIA in the US for the work done?

About a year ago I purchased a used KIA USA 2006 Amanti in the US. At that time the warranty was transferred over to me by KIA USA. Later in that year (2007) KIA Canada decided that because of the large number of cars coming in from the US they would no longer honour the US warranty in Canada.
This means then that if warranty service is needed, I would have 2 options.
1.- pay cash up-front and then submit a claim to KIA USA in California.
2.- driving to the nearest US dealer 180 miles away (if I could drive it).
To this point I have had no trouble whatsoever and am very pleased with this car but I like to look ahead!
