Buying a 2012 Honda CR-V, and saving $2500 off of MSRP.
We chose the CRV for it's overall better driving feel while keeping with a 4 cyclinder for better gas mileage. CRV has less bells and whistles than some other brands but it's basics are better implemented such as bluetooth and backup camera.

I had a great experience in purchasing other Hondas from this salesman and dealer; they immediately understood that I had a strong negotiating position, based on the Car Cost Canada information, and we struck a deal quickly.

Buying a 2008 Honda CR-V, and saving $6000 off of MSRP.
Buying a new car armed with my price report was almost too easy. After test-driving a 2008 CRV-EXL, I asked the salesman for his best price, telling him that I have done some research on the internet. He came back with an offer, and then I pulled out my price report to compare. I felt that $800 profit was fair for this vehicle. His price was only $100 higher, and he agreed to waive the infamous "processing" fee, so I paid $5400 below list price.

The Birchwood group was very good. Knowledgeable and professional in the negotiation of the CR-V. They fully understood I was an informed buyer that was serious in purchasing and respected the dealer invoicing I collected. However, I lost control when they rolled the trade-in into the price and wasn't sure that the black book value I reasearched was fully accurate. Now I had to separate the two to review the 3-5% offer was still validated for the dealer above invoice, and my trade-in was fair as well. At the end of the day, it was and I was very satisfied that Birchwood played fair ball to purchasing a new vehicle from them. After this experience with Birchwood West, the family will replace the Ford Explorer in the spring and I will go back to Birchwood in a minute to purchase another Honda.

In hindsight,I wasn't as assertive as I should have been before this purchase.I basically accepted their position that the difference between the wholesale price and the retail price was the lowest margin they could accept,which was 7% in my case.If I had to do it again,though, I think I would have asked for 4-5% over wholesale.If they said "no", I would have thanked them and headed for the door. That is what my dad used to do,and he got great deals when they chased after him. My sister takes after dad,and her husband lets her do the haggling when they purchase new vehicles.

I found it so easy to negotiate a better deal, once you are armed with the information from Car Cost Canada. The best way is to just lay the information on the salesman's desk and let him respond; instantly, the tone changed and I was negotiating from a position of strength.

As indicated, once the dealer saw the Car Canada report, they accepted they had a serious buyer and were able to negotiate a resonable price with no haggle.

I calculated my "rock bottom" price based on the information and advice from Car Cost Canada and presented this to the dealer. I gave the dealer a fair profit and indicated that this was going to be my only offer, and we (the dealer and I) had a "hassle free" experience.
Buying a 2008 Honda Accord Sdn, and saving $8000 off of MSRP.
I used Car Cost Canada reports to compare 2009 to 2008 Honda Accord EX models. Knowing the rebate amount allowed on both, along with appropriate profit margins, provided a price reduction from the original retail of over $7000. (before tax). I actually paid $1400. below (before tax) what the Car Canada report showed as an acceptable purchase price. I told the dealer I would only make 1 offer for the vehicle, and my offer was accepted within 10 minutes. (Please do not publish my full name if you publish my comments).

The Wholesale Price Report gave me the knowledge and confidence to strike the best deal. Having the full information also gave me the comfort in knowing that I wasn't being ripped off.
