Buying a 2013 Hyundai Elantra, and saving $1000 off of MSRP.
I actually contacted several Hyundai dealers in Brampton, Oakville and Hamilton who are affiliated with Car Cost Canada and was able to receive offers which were better than Performance Hyundai. I really try to buy local but next time around I will probably go to whatever dealer offers the best price. Oakville Hyundai actually had a price which was $112.00 less than Performance Hyundai in St. Catharines. I did not order the vehicle etching or nitrogen in the tires but when I picked up the vehicle it had both options already installed at no additional charge. It leads me to wonder if all vehicles come with these options already installed at the factory.

There was not a lot of mark up in the vehicle that I chose, but the dealer was
willing to offer some discount when I mentioned the Car cost price report.

Buying a 2011 Hyundai Elantra, and saving $500 off of MSRP.
These vehicles are a new model and margins appear very tight. I didn't get a bigger discount than anyone walking in off the street could have gotten.
I researched heavily, but did not present my price report. The sales manager assumed that I had that information.
I was shown all relevant computer records; past month sales, wholesale prices, current inventory, etc. I believed I got the best price anyone was going to get. If I would have taken last year''s model, up to $4,000 was available in discounts. I didn't want that model and I didn't want financing.

The "Dealer Invoice" is bogus. There is no way that's the REAL price the dealer paid whether they can show you an invoice or not. The real final price is hundreds or even thousands less. There is no way at all that the dealer buying 5,000 cars from the manufacturer pays the same bottom line price as the dealer who buys 500 cars. I paid "under invoice" and please tell me why any dealer would sell under invoice on a new model that had been in showrooms for a week. Take this pricing with a huge grain of salt. We know there's a kick back to Car Cost for the lead and there likely could be compensation to Car Cost from the manufacturers to subsidize the whole website. There's nothing wrong with that but I doubt Car Cost is totally independent.
I did find it helpful as a starting point on price but I negotiated with 4 dealers via e-mail which certainly limited a lot of the crap one goes through when buying a vehicle and so much of it is a big game, a waste of time and one always gets the feeling that the goal at most dealerships is a happy dealer not a happy customer whether true or not.
I did like how the report summarized all pricing-"cost", finance rates, available rebates etc. One could chase all over looking for that.
All in all, CCC was worth what I paid for it and it did at least give me a starting point in pricing details but it is hardly a bottom line tool but still useful.

No hassle negotiations, no pressure to buy. The CarCostCanada price quote provides the consumer with detailed information about price and incentives available before you purchase.

I chose my car based on consumers reports regarding safety and reliability. The dealer was the one on the preferred list from CarCostCanada. I had financing in place before I went to the dealership,but the salesman offered a better deal including the factory discounts and a lower interest rate than my first financing rate.

After joining CarCost Canada and inquiring about Hyundai along with several other cars I was contacted by a number of dealerships. They were all quite prepared to adhere to the vehicle pricing as provided by CarCost and it really came down to what they were prepared to put into my trade as well as which vehicle was best for me comfort wise.

The Car Cost report helped to make this a very easy negotiation. I saved about $1200. I bought the Limited edition of the Sante Fe. Heads up about the vehicle... it has very little heat to the back passenger area and has not solution yet.

Buying a 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe, and saving $4000 off of MSRP.
We had always liked the Hyundai Santa Fe with their 5 yr warranty, as well as feed back from friends. Our purchase came faster than we thought as our vehicle(1999 Windstar) was involved in an accident with the result of being written off. Thus we were plunged into the search for another vehicle. After some initial bargaining I then signed up with CCC to verify retail vs. dealer cost, thus helping me with final negotiations.

The vehicle ( Santa Fe) replaced one I leased in 2005. It was one of the most comfortable and reliable vehicles I've ever owned. Driving the new one was just the same experience. Have your print out with you and wait for the dealer to make you an offer! Ray was terrific!

I was surprised to learn that CCC informed the dealer that we contacted CCC. I do not think this is the right way for CCC to operate. However, after I went through the CCC costing of the vehicle of my choice, a Hyundai Santa Fe, the dealer contacted me with a lower offer than CCC's posted dealer cost. Eventually this saved me over $1500.00 compared to a more local dealer.

Car Cost is a great tool, for anyone from the first time buyer to the skill full car buying vet. It''s easy to use and it seems that most dealers are not as pushy when they know you have used the service. Jackie Scull from Performance Hyundai in St. Catharine's is by far the best sales person I have ever dealt with. I have bought 2 new cars in the past year and a half, and she has made both experiences EASY!!! She''s not at all pushy, and I felt as though she worked to get me the best deal. Now as for the Sante Fe Ltd. AWD I bought from her...what an autombile!!!! It has it all and the price is competitive if not better than anything else out there. Great power, beutiful leather interior, no cheap looking plastics, comfortable and sharp looking to. Hyundai has really come a long way, they really do make beautiful, quality vehicles now a days, and this is coming from someone with two brothers who work for one of the big three, and with the best available warranty in Canada it just made sense for me. I saved a combined $5000 with the cash back they were offering at the time, and I probably could have done a little better but even sales people have to eat right!!!!!
