Buying a 2018 Kia Rio 5-door, and saving $750 off of MSRP.
Nothing negative. Told them I felt $400 over invoice was fair for both of us, and they accepted it with no counter offer. They also did nothing on the hard sell for any additional items like rust proofing or warranty. Just informed us about them.
Buying a 2012 Kia Sorento, and saving $3000 off of MSRP.
No pressure salesman. Very friendly and personable. Local area dealer as well.
Did not have the same experience at Kia 417 and Bank Street. They just wanted you in the showroom so they could do a bait and switch.
I didn't actually show them the CCC report, I just mentioned them by name and the vehicle markup amount. I guess they knew that I was not making things up.
Best advice I can give is to go into the dealer in the evening about 2 days before month end. (Dealers cannot count the sale in their monthly total until it is delivered to the customer. This gives them 2 days to do that). They were quite motivated to make a deal. I did not expect to get 8% off of a 2012. Very pleased!

Buying a 2011 Kia Sorento, and saving $1500 off of MSRP.
Dealer had an in-house discount which brought the retail close to Carcost retail, but we were able to negotiate further being aware of Carcost info.
Buying a 2009 Kia Rio, and saving $4000 off of MSRP.
Take in the CarCost Canada price and know which car on the market it is up against and give it a fair market value. Don't be afraid to take it to another dealer EVEN if the dealer is recommended by CarCost. I found that the rep I dealt with originally was good, but knowing what I knew from the 1st dealer and he wouldn't budge, that I found another dealer willing to move just that much more to get the price I wanted.
