Buying a 2017 Kia Optima Plug-In Hybrid, and saving $1500 off of MSRP.
I appreciated the help, and flexibility in our purchase. We attended a sale with the invoice purchase knowledge, looking to buy a 2017 clear out PHEV Optima. We missed the cars they had on the lot, and the 2018 are just that much more expensive! They worked hard for us in finding us a 2017 to the point of discounting the car further when the color we wished was not available. I think knowing what they paid helped us not only be fair as well, but have peace of mind. Thanks for such a great tool to aid a high stress, exciting purchase adventure! I would recommend this dealership. Yes I stress this buying tool to friends and family! Not all dealerships are easy to work with.

Buying a 2012 Kia Sorento, and saving $3000 off of MSRP.
By dealing with Dilawri, I saved an extra $1,500.00 from the best deal I've received on the Quebec side (Gatineau).

Buying a 2014 Kia Sorento, and saving $3000 off of MSRP.
The vehicle is highly rated, the engine was among world's top 10 in 2007 and it has not changed. Lacks some goodies such as rear view camera but has sensors, lacks some other Ford innovations such as side looking "radar" while backing out of parking spaces etc. But, drives very nicely and has a good track record.
I was able to talk "intelligently" with the Dealer regarding wholesale prices, etc. which lead to easy negotiations and knowing just what we wanted and what our budget was going to be. I Found Ford Carleton Build and Price to be lacking, such as the extra charge for two colors of paint - is "hidden" in price as I only noted it through the Wholesale price report. I found dealer staff to be very open and friendly, no pressure, and dealt with Dealer Principal for negotiation. His web site is the best I have seen with much use of videos which I highly recommend, regardless of where one is located.
Buying a 2011 Kia Forte 5-Door, and saving $3000 off of MSRP.
As far as the car goes, the Forte5 had much more space than the Mazda 3, and for the same price, I got far more car with the Kia than the Mazda. Even though the Elantra Touring and Forte5 are sister cars, the Kia had a more powerful engine and more refined interior with a far sportier feel than the Hyundai. All in all, I couldn't be happier with the Kia.
417 Kia, the dealer suggested by the report, was unsatisfactory. They never called me back after I called twice to inquire about stock, and I let the sales manager know as much. I instead went to Bank Street Kia, part of the Dilawri group of dealerships in Ottawa, and was treated with respect and made to feel valued from the moment I walked in the door. The sales staff was friendly, and did everything they could to accommodate my requests. They really went the extra mile by including so many extras (winter tires, iPod cable, auto starter and more) even after we had negotiated the price of the car. I'd recommend Bank Street Kia to anybody looking for a car in Ottawa.
Knowing the spread between MSRP and dealer cost was of great help when knowing how far they'd be willing to come down. Seeing all the factory incentives and rebates on one page was great.
