Had a previous Honda Civic for 19 years - was very reliable. Joker salesman was good - no pressure, gave good info on what I wanted to know. Wholesale price from Car Cost was not very helpful. Could have made the same deal without it.

Buying a 2010 Honda CR-V, and saving $4000 off of MSRP.
Visited all Honda dealers in the vicinity looking for a 2010 Honda CRV. Jonker Honda seemed to be helpful at first providing a price based on my Car Cost Canada information.However, once they had my downpayment, the receiving date of the car went from 3 or 4 days to 3 weeks, then 10 weeks. After cancelling my agreement, I received a phone call from the finance manager saying that they could get one much sooner - about a week. I said okay and went to the dealer to purchase the car. The NEXT day I received an email from Car Cost Canada saying that Honda was offering a rebate of $2500 on 2010 CRVs. I also received a phone call from an auto broker confirming this. When I called Frank, he claimed to have no knowledge of any memo stating the rebate. I spoke to the finance manager and the owner/manager of Jonker Honda, both of whom said the same thing. I went to Honda Canada and explained my situation to them and they asked me to fax them the Car Cost Canada report along with my bill of sale. They ultimately ruled in my favour and instructed Jonker Honda to give me the full rebate. Then, it became my job to try to collect $2500 from Jonker Honda. Although it took a few months of waiting and many phone calls to Honda Canada to tell them that Jonker''''s was ignoring me, etc. I eventually received a cheque in the mail for the rebate. Without Car Cost Canada and the confirmation of one other source (a local auto broker), I would not have received maximum value for my dollar. Thanks so much, Penny

The Wholesale Price Report helped when negotiating prices - sometimes I mentioned it as a tool, sometimes I did not depending on the situation. We purchased the car yesterday (Honda CRV AWD) and today, we have heard that prices on the CRV are being dropped by $2500. This is not apparent on the Honda website yet so perhaps it will be posted for February. Obviously, this does not make me very happy since it is only about 24 hours since we purchased our vehicle. So, I give the "8" rating based on service thus far, however, if the dealer knew this yesterday, I might have to reconsider the high rating.

Go to a variety of dealers to explore and test drive the vehicles under consideration. And to see if that is the sales person and dealer you want to make a deal with. The Wholesale Price Report gives you the bottom line to start your negotiations from.
Buying a 2008 Honda Accord Cpe, and saving $2500 off of MSRP.
Try the dealerships outside the city(vancouver) to avoid administration fees. Dealers outside the the city (ie Surrey, Abbotsford) do not charge the fee. This fee is approx $200 - $300 depending on dealer.
The Wholesale Price Report helped us figure out what price range we should be paying and the first dealer we dealt with was pretty much at 3% mark up. But then we decided to shop a around and got better deals as we went along and finally settle on one.
Do not go to The Honda Way in Abbotsford. During the negotiations the dealer raised their counter offer by approx $500 from the original offer that they had offered.
