If you're driving from the US to Canada, then US rules apply in addition to Canadian rules - and the US rules will almost certainly say "no" in this case.

Have you ever come across an SUV that legally seats 4 people in the back row? Of course this is going to be a problem!!!

Do you have a time machine? Without one I'm not sure what relevance this question has to Travel?

comment Transfer time at Newark
United does use terminal B for some arrivals, and in this case it seems to be correct.

comment What is the most effective way to use United (MileagePlus) miles?
United's region-based pricing means that shorter flights within a region are frequently not a good option for redemption. eg, it's the same number of miles for Seattle to Hawaii as it is for New York to Hawaii, despite the latter being almost twice the distance and almost always more expensive for paid tickets.

$25 restaurant.com gift cards sell on restaurant.com for $10. They can frequently be purchased on special for as low as $2. That's about 250 points/dollar - far worse than your flight option.

comment Do you have a GPS signal on board of a plane?
I've seen my GPS report a speed of 1258km/hour when travelling with a ~300km/hour tailwind. The "airshow" display on the plane showed a speed 2 km/hour different, so the GPS was obviously extremely accurate even at that speed. (Yes, that's technically faster than the speed of sound - but due to the tailwind we were not technically going faster than sound relative to the air around us)

comment What happens if I have checked-in bags and decide not to board my connecting flight on return?
@user606723 My source is passing through US immigration and customs several dozen times in the past few years. That's definitely how it works.

THIS IS NOT A DUPLICATE of the question listed. That question refers to a domestic flight. This is an international flight feeding into a domestic flight, where the passenger is considering leaving the itinerary at the international connection point. This gives a very different answer.

Sorry, but this is incorrect. As DTW is the point of entry into the US the bags will be unloaded anyway, and it will be the responsibility of the passenger to collect them and take them through customs.
