Buying a 2011 Hyundai Sonata, and saving $2000 off of MSRP.
I used the recommended dealer and salesperson.
I wanted a hybrid that was highly rated in its non-hybrid version.
The salesperson drove to Ottawa to trade for the colour I wanted!! The next available car was in Winnipeg for a $500 freight charge.
The dealer markup was the same as my 2004 car purchased through CarCost Canada.
I upgraded the very poorly-rated OEM tires with top-rated Michelin Primacy MXM4 tires. You really must do this! It transforms the car.
