Buying a 2018 Honda CR-V, and saving $2750 off of MSRP.
Once I said that CarCostCanada said they could get me the price I indicated no one argued. The price was more than $2,000 lower than the initial price asked for by the company.

The dealer was very responsive and familiar with CarCostCanada. The dealer gave me the best of the related Honda dealers and I estimated my saving through CarCostCanada exceeded $3500, this took into consideration the MSRP, Dealer Invoice and Final Sale Amount.

Buying a 2009 Honda CR-V, and saving $2500 off of MSRP.
Honda prices we found are pretty well fixed but the $3500 manufacturer's cash rebate was brought up which we were able to take advantage of when we bought the car two days ago. Unfortunately and maybe fortunately for others the rebate has now increased to $5000. It's all about timing. The dealership is fine and we know rebates change, unfortunately I don't think they'll mail us an extra $1500 just to be nice.

Have a list of accessories that you might want if the dealer won't lower prices to what you want to pay. The sales guy only gave us $1000 off the consumer rebate when it said $1500, but we make it up by getting free accessories. He was more willing to give free accessories than price reduction.

Buying a 2008 Honda CR-V, and saving $4000 off of MSRP.
I saved 600.00 from the dealer's list price plus the 3,000.00 cash back that went to the dealer. The dealer threw in the first service for free. Knowing the hidden rebates was helpful. Also appreciating the dealer needs to make some margin also helped, as I was willing to let the dealer make some dollars and this was appreciated by the dealer. The deal took 5 minutes to make after we had made up our mind on what we wanted to buy.

It would be nice to have vehicle reviews on this website, so that you can make up your mind without having to go to so many different websites for the reviews. This would make your website an all-encompassing decision-making tool for vehicle purchases.
I know I have referred your services to my friends and family. Keep up the good work! Thank You.

Buying a 2009 Honda Odyssey, and saving $3000 off of MSRP.
My wife and I decided to buy a new van. We narrowed our search to the Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna, and Kia Sedona and test drove all three. We figured we had no hope at getting the Odyssey due to cost. We decided on the Sedona.
The day before heading to a Kia dealer to make an offer, I decided to get a Car Cost Canada report for the Odyssey DX (we had looked at a higher trim), and found out about a fairly significant incentive that was not offered on the other trims (not surprised that this did not come up at the dealership). So the next day we went into another Honda dealership and set the tone in the negotiations by offering the invoice price + 4% markup (a bit under 1/2 of MSRP markup), and gave a price including taxes which I had calculated previously. No negotiations needed. We added to that the cost of the block heater and mud flaps and that was it, very brief and painless.
I think the trick was going in prepared with the Car Cost Canada report, pre-calculated markups (I had final prices from 2%-5% markup prepared), and letting them know we would buy the van that day if things worked out.

We chose our vehicle as there were such good rebates. We saved almost $8000 in rebates.
Buying a 2016 Honda Civic Coupe, and saving $3500 off of MSRP.
Alex and his staff went above and beyond helping me purchase a new vehicle. In over 30 new vehicle purchases, this was exceptional. They were patient with the time I needed due to medical reasons and made the whole purchase one easy transaction. They have me the price I asked based on the report I received from carcost. Would highly recommend both CarCost and Alberta Honda for anyone's next purchase!

Alberta Honda contacted me and wanted my business. I tried to deal with Sherwood Honda but they would come no where close (6000.00 difference) to the deal I finally made with Alberta Honda. I feel I made a good deal with the incentives, loyalty incentive and the Wholesale Price Report. The one thing everyone needs to remember is this Report gives you a starting point for your negotiations. Be prepared when you go to the dealership to purchase your vehicle. Know what you want in the vehicle and what the most is you are going to pay. The dealership wants to get as much as they can and you need to be prepared to walk away if you can not stay within your numbers. I did, but still feel I could have paid less. I am very happy with the deal I did make, but doesn't mean I wouldn't want to have that extra money in my pocket rather than the dealerships.

I was not pressured to buy. I don't know if it was because of the economy, the fact that Honda Civics are popular and they don't need to apply pressure or if the dealer typically does this.
I love the sporty look and feel of the Honda Civic Sedan along with the reasonable price of a new car. I also look forward to many years of driving my car because of its great reliability and mileage.

I was initially dealing with Sherwood Park Hyundai on a 2008 Elantra GLS but was sorely disappointed in the customer service and in the "run around" I got from the dealership. There were a number of hidden costs to purchasing, and despite the quotes provided on this site, they were less than apt to bargain. I have written to Hyundai Canada about my disappointing experience and believe that this site should not support that particular dealership. I also contacted Northstar Hyundai as suggested by this site, but they were not very helpful in either trying to find the vehicle I was looking for, or in negotiating on price.

We played the 3 local Hondas in our city head to head and let them know they need to give you the best price. Funny thing is they keep on giving you the "best price" before we got the lowest cost possible. CarcostCanada helped a lot because you know how far they can go down. In the end, we did 4.5% above Dealer Cost which is fair on both sides. Quite happy! $45 was totally worth it.

The Honda Fit had very little markup from the wholesale price ($895.00), but upon presenting the wholesale price report to the salesperson, I was still able to negotiate $500.00 off the price. They agreed with the information on the report, and dealt with me in a fair, straightforward manner.
