Buying a 2011 Subaru Forester, and saving $1500 off of MSRP.
We were really happy with our salesman, but not so happy with the dealer. Rally Subaru charges a $395 "documentation fee" and $395 for a "tire/etching" fee and they say they are mandatory. But our salesman saved us money on the accessories so in the end we were happy with our purchase.

Subaru has a small piece of the market compared to other auto makers and there is less room for negotiating price. They were well versed in the CarCost reports. I found that there were several add ons that fell outside of the CarCost reports which increased the price of the vehicle. Car salesmen and dealerships have only 1 agenda and that is to make money.
Buying a 2011 Subaru Legacy, and saving $1000 off of MSRP.
I chose the vehicle based on price point and features compared to other vehicles in its class. I favoured the Subaru for its better maneuverability/handling, f/t all-wheel drive and interior ergonomics. I chose the dealer strictly because it was one of two dealerships in my city and it was the closest one. I used the Wholesale Price Report to understand the amount of mark-up on the particular vehicle I chose. I considered this information during the negotiations. I had not been fully informed of total fees added during the sale process until it came to negotiations. There was a $395 doc fee and $395 tire/etch fee that cropped up. Advice for future buyers would be to contact a dealership and inquire about ALL fees and taxes added before going into negotiate.

Buying a 2011 Subaru Legacy, and saving $4000 off of MSRP.
The report gave me a lot of confidence going in that I could ask for both price and a few options as throw ins, and know that it was still a fair offer. I also used the report to prepare a possible offer for my 2nd choice of vehicle. Having a strong backup plan gave me confidence to take charge in the negotiations. I actually enjoyed the whole purchase experience for once!
Leasing a 2011 Subaru Impreza, and saving $1500 off of MSRP.
After deciding that the Impreza Limited is the car I wanted to buy, I asked Chris if they would honour the Car Cost Canada recommended price. I used the markup guidelines and he agreed. It made the negotiating much easier as there wasn''t any negotiating necessary. Chris is great; he''s young, hungry and is eager to make you happy. He doesn''t try to up sell you and is straight forward in telling you the truth about things you may or may not need. His customer service is excellent.
