Leasing a 2008 Honda Civic Sdn, and saving $1000 off of MSRP.
The Civic suited my needs, and I really like the combo of Japanese engineering and Canadian construction.
I first went to a dealer in a nearby city (before signing on to Car Cost Canada). Even after spending over an hour there and demonstrating I was ready to buy that week, the sales manager's first offer was full MSRP, which I thought was disrespectful.
Imagine my delight when, equipped with the Car Cost Canada report, I had a much better experience with the local dealer. (To give credit where credit is due, the sales rep was recommended to me by a colleague who knew him). I followed the Car Cost canada buying tips, and produced the reports right away. My well-informed offer (wholesale plus 5%) was well-received as reasonable, and started negotiations off on the right foot. A very satisfactory experience from the dealer, and from car Cost Canada!
