Question Importing a Japanese Galant worth it?

Hey all, names Cheslav and i just got my license after i was slacking on getting it for 2 years. I've been saving up for a car in Edmonton and was going to move back to Toronto and buy my self a Galant. The ones I kept looking at were the 2003 models. I really like the look and the reviews are spectacular. But every car for sale is either very expensive for the age or cheap, but has < 200.000Km on them. I dug a little deeper. And found Japanese used cars. | with some really nice deals on a Galants for about 1000$ CAD and around 50.00Km. Now i know there is a lot of fees that come along with importing vehicles. Not exactly completely familiar with them but i figure it might run me 4-5 G's all together. Reason im doing this is because Japanese cars are built far more sturdy, have better mileage and greater power. This is all coming from one mechanics opinion so excuse me if the're false.

So basically im here to ask, is it all really worth it. If the mileage is better, I will save on Toronto crazy gas prices. But seeing as how its an import. Will i lose some on insurance? (im going to sign up under my sister) Im willing to learn and get used to right hand steering. Im fairly new to the automotive game. Only took 3 years of auto so not exactly an expert on cars. Also anything else i have to keep in mind before purchasing a vehicle from Japan. Like frauds or broken cars struck by the tsunami.

And im new to this forum so i apologise if i picked the wrong place to put this thread.
