Buying a 2011 Toyota Venza, and saving $6000 off of MSRP.
I sent an offer of 3% over invoice to 6 local dealers while I was on vacation. I was suprised that 5 came back accepting the deal. Then, when I got home I drove my trade in to each dealer to have it appraised.
Cambridge Toyota gave the best deal for my trade-in (by far). The service was very good. Only downside was that the trade-in offer was "if you're ready to commit now, I can get you this deal". I had wanted to go to a few more places, but the deal was very good. We also had a mechanical issue with the car that day and they agreed to comp the diagnosis (and ultimatley the repair). Still, the trade in offer was significantly more than what I'd seen at other dealerships.
No attempt at upselling (by the sales rep or the finance rep). I would go back myself and recommend this dealer (and sales rep) to anyone. But, you might want to go after you get your trade-in appraised at other dealers first if you get the same tactic I did.
In the end, we saved $3750 (after tax) due to Toyota cash back deal and $2000 from negotiations using the CarCostCanada report. We spent the same as we would have if we paid the sticker price on used 2009 Venzas we'd seen with 40k kms.
