Buying a 2013 Hyundai Elantra, and saving $1000 off of MSRP.
Had been to this dealer prior to joining CCC and continued to deal with them once I had the Wholesale Price Report. This dealership had sales people that dealt specifically with CCC customers and it went very smoothly when they knew what I wanted and how much I was willing to pay based on the Wholesale Price Report.
Buying a 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe, and saving $6000 off of MSRP.
They were very above board and handled the information that we received from Car Cost and honoured all the rebates that were indicated by our report. They negotiated with respect. Compare that to the treatment we received at the Abbotsford Hyundai who scoffed when we showed them the report from Car cost. They were even going to look at the rebates that were cited, plus said that they would not budge from a 7.5% over the dealer cost.
Buying a 2012 Hyundai Accent, and saving $2000 off of MSRP.
I have purchased 2 vehicles using CarCostCanada's wholesale price reports. This was the first one that also included a "CCC Recommended Dealer", and this made a huge difference. Prior to seeing the recommended dealer, I went to 2 other dealerships to get a "competitive" price. Both dealerships were within $100 of each other and both were quoting above retail! (They included things such as window engraving, document fees, etc., that I didn't want/need and told me that
this was the best they would offer, given that there were very few available.) When I called the recommended dealer, the contact given turned out to be the General Sales Manager, who immediately put me at ease. We then met face-to-face and within minutes had worked out an agreeable price. Not only had we agreed upon a % over the wholesale price (just as CCC had suggested), but he informed me that the Factory-to-Dealer rebate was more than what I had on my CCC report! When was the last time you had a dealership give you more off the price than you expected?! (To CCC's credit, I did receive an email about a week later that advised me of the new, higher rebate.) If CCC has a recommended dealer for the vehicle you want, I strongly recommend you give them a call and don't waste your time with "inflexible" sales people at other dealerships.
