Determine your price in advance and don't budge. I Used Price Reports to determine the exact "on the road" price, and did not move off that. I openly displayed my research including the CCC report. I opened the discussion with "I only have 10 minutes for this discussion"
Examples of sales discussions that then transpired:
- "5000$ factory to dealer non-stackable incentive would only be 4800$ because of tax implications": My response was - NO, it is $5000
- "I will need an additional $280 to cover a dealer transfer because we don't have your model on our log and need to purchase it from another dealer": my response was NO, and I will go to the dealer with the inventory that has my model
- "do you have a trade in" My response was, lets talk about that , if at all, after we finish the new car deal. Subsequently, I was low balled on the trade in, which magically became worth $1200 more when I refused to sell it.

We chose this dealer as we had a van on lease that was coming due. The wholesale report prepared us for the negotiation and once the dealer saw how prepared we were, he showed us his computer screen with his cost and gave us his bottom line on what he needed for profit (approx. 2.4%) which was less than what we were prepared to pay (note: he was the leasing manager so there was no consideration for salesperson commission).

Paulo was forth coming with the Wholesale Price and Cash/Finance Incentives. next time I will start with him and not waste my time. Paulo (apart from price) was the best sales person out of all of them.

Do your homework. I showed up at three dealerships with a folder which contained the following: a print-out of a list of all Honda dealers within 50km; a sheet clearing describing the vehicle/model I wanted including all extras, options, PDI, taxes (of all sorts) based on the MSRP (this also included my intention to pay cash and to have no trade-in); beside the line for Total # based on MSRP, I had a box marked "Your Best Price, all-in!"; the last piece of the package was a print-out of page one of the "CarCostCanada"report for my desired vehicle. I told each salesman that there was no hurry for a price as I had to see at least three other dealerships that day in order to deliver the same package. I said, "Call me at your convenience, but in the next 24 hours." Two dealerships gave me prices on the spot! One at $4500 off the MSRP and the other at $9000 off!

I chose the Honda CR-V over the Toyota RAV-4 because of its superior design, look, and feel. Also, I owned Honda Accord and Civic before and loved their reliablility and resale values. I contacted a few dealers but Classic Honda was very responsive to email inquiry and ready to work with Whole Sale Report. I recommend that you need to know exactly what you want, model and options, before starting to negotiate anything. Most dealers don't talk about pricing over the phone, so it is always better to go to the dealers in person. Also, go there on a weekday and close to the end of the month, for example on a Tuesday of the last week of the month. This is a when the salesmen are not busy but under pressusre to meet his monthly quota.

The dealer actually showed me the Dealer Cost of the CR-V, which matched my Car Cost Canada report exactly! He then mentioned the current promotions, also detailed by Car Cost Canada. Because he did this, I knew that he was one of the most honest sales reps out there. I had another experience with another dealer, and he tried to charge me for the optional Theft Deterrent system, for $299, as part of my initial payment.

Call around to various dealers for the best price. Family Honda in Brampton was just as competitive as Classic Honda.
Just because a dealer contacts you from being contacted to Car Cost Canada, doesn't mean they are competitively priced. Bolton Honda contacted me, however they were priced higher than most, because it is a new dealership.

Try to find an established dealer rather than an "independant" seller to ensure good post-sales service.

Buy the vehicle at the end of the month when dealerships are trying to achieve their sales quota. Present Car Cost Canada information up front and negotiate from wholesale price not from the MSRP price.

The sales rep was very helpful and knowledgeable about the car. He was able to answer all of our questions. The dealership and manager were very helpful and open with the prices and explained how they were being paid on commission. I did not reveal that I was a CCC member however I was aware of the prices and costs. When they explained their way of getting paid, it was a confirmation of the costs that I knew from CCC.

I foregone the accessories because they're not included in the report; I have to research further on various detailing shops on adding accessories to the car I've purchased. If the information was included in the report, I would have negotiated with the dealer.

We purchased a dealer demo with low mileage and saved over $11,000! Because the demo was in the current model year, we were able to negotiate both a significant saving off the price of the vehicle along with all of the incentives we learned about from Car Cost Canada.
We spent a month shopping for our new vehicle, and the reports from Car Cost helped us substantially with our negotiations. Many dealers were not forthcoming with all of the incentives being offered, but because we knew the incentives in advanced, we were "well armed" to negotiate.
We would not purchase another new vehicle without Car Cost price Reports. A number of our friends purchase new vehicles around the same time we purchased ours, and we know we received more significant saving than they did because we did our research first. We would not have been able to afford the vehicle we purchased if we did not have the info we learned in the price reports.
Definitely worth the $40.00!!!

Our Experience at classic honda was very pleasent and Simon was excellent person to deal with. We did not have to show the car cost canada report. But having the report makes you a more informed buyer. I used to think the dealer made more money on new car. Report is excellent tool.

When entering the dealership, I took the report with me...simply asked what the MSRP was (to ensure that it matched it the CCC report) and started from there. Once Glenn was aware that I knew what was going on, he was great. Some dealers might not drop their price too far (new car, limited demand etc) if that's the case, negotiate free service visits...to sell the car, they'll do something for you.
Buying a 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour, and saving $2000 off of MSRP.
I was given the wholesale price by CarCost
I went to the recommended dealer and Sales Rep who was offering the car at $900 over wholesale price (including options).
He ordered he car.
I picked it up about 4 weeks later.
Paid the agreed to discounted price and drove off.
It could not have simpler - no haggling, no hassle and a great deal!
I explored other discount organizations and they do not offer anywhere near the service that the CarCost does.
I have used CarCost in the past and will always use them in the future.

Submit a low bid and be prepared to allow the dealer more profit if necessary, but don't bend too easily. Once you quote a price, they are unlikely to ever go below that. I took dealer cost and subtracted all incentives provided by Carcost ( that the dealer would never acknowledge these otherwise), then added $300 for dealer profit - they accepted, no questions asked.
