Buying a 2011 Honda CR-V, and saving $500 off of MSRP.
Based on the Report, there was much room for negotiation. The price they offered us was less that the retail price listed on the report. We liked the vehicle and bought it.

Buying a 2010 Honda CR-V, and saving $4000 off of MSRP.
I researched the vehicles on the internet, Consumers Report and I ask my mechanic what he thought was the best vehicle of the 2 that I had narrowed it down to. When I went in to negotiate a deal I did exactly what car cost canada suggested. I took the factory invoice and added 5% (because it was a popular vehicle). I had completed a deal with the dealer and was waiting for the vehicle because it had to be ordered when I received a notice from car cost canada that there was now a factory incentive to the dealer. I called up the dealer and got a higher model for less than what I was going to pay for the lower model. The dealer was very happy to change it...no problems. The email notice from car cost canada was awesome...not only did I save more money but I got more vehicle! You have to deal with the right person at Birchwood on Regent...I started out there with another salesperson and switched to Jack Reves because she didn't want to negotiate. Almost went somewhere else but Jack was very helpful and I ended up buying there, even though that was not the most convenient dealership to my house. Initially went there because a family member referred me to a dealer there but she was not helpful.

It was a pleasure to deal with Christian. He was knowledgeable, customer oriented, accommodating and friendly yet businesslike. I presented the Wholesale Price Report and we went from there. Price and options were done within the hour. He went out of his way to get both the exterior and interior colours we wanted.

Buying a 2010 Honda Civic Cpe, and saving $1500 off of MSRP.
This dealership was very willing to make a deal. Once I told them that I new the wholesale price most of the usual back and forth bartering was over. I saved about $1,100 off MSRP plus $2,500 in factory rebates. One thing I did not like was the vehicle etching they say all their cars must have. I did however negotiate the price of the etching down buy 50%.

Honda currently has an eco-rebate on Civics, the dealership was very receptive to finding us our Civic, and was fair in their negotiations. CarCostCanada's wholesale report assisted me with their best offer since I knew that I was only 5% over dealer cost (which was fair).

The numbers provided by CCC are very accurate and is a good base to start your negotiations. Just watch out for the extra fees like block heater, mud guards, and wheel locks which aren't included in the CCC price, they can add up to an extra $200. Some sales rep were willing to show their cost price as long as you can guarantee your business with them. Most of the time they'll agree to terms such as paying cost + 3%. They usually won't give you an exact number (especially in smaller cities) because they're afraid their competitors will undercut the price by a hundred dollars or so. Usually you can get a good deal with less hassle if you spell out exactly what you want in an email request for a quote. Just make it sound like you're serious about buying a car so that they don't think you are wasting their time.
