Buying a 2011 GMC Sierra 3500HD, and saving $8000 off of MSRP.
I had previously purchased vehicles from Eagle Ridge and their service department is excellent. The vehicle prep was outstanding, the finance representative excellent, the sales manger very good, and the sales representative mediocre.
I initially visited the dealership and finally got an estimate as to the difference between a new truck and my 08 Sierra. I then subscribed to CarCostCanada and with the price report, I was able to go back and negotiate a substantially lower price.
As a result of my subscription, I was also contacted by a sales representative from Carter GM.
Buying a 2010 GMC Sierra 1500, and saving $2500 off of MSRP.
Chose this dealer because they had a lot of inventory, and the trim level I wanted in the truck.The dealer denied that one of the factory rebates listed on carcost did not exist but I used that info in my offer. With this dealer make sure you see the MSRP or factory build sheet other wise they will tell you a different amount for the MRSP
Buying a 2009 Pontiac Vibe, and saving $3000 off of MSRP.
I negotiated a bit first and then I pulled out my carcost report. in both situations the dealer realized that there was no more point in pretending that they were going to consider my offers and see if They could get me to move closer to their price. I also let them sell me a vehicle they had in stock and got them to throw in a free roof rack and sun roof.
