Buying a 2012 Honda CR-V, and saving $1000 off of MSRP.
Car Cost Canada gave me the confidence to make my offer. Having the wholesale price and the suggestion of markup percentages made it easy to decide what I was prepared to spend. I didn't feel at the mercy of the dealer. As it turned out my dealer was really on target with their offer so we just agreed to eliminate the "administration fee" and we could agree on a final price. I found the dealer eager to make the sale, knowing I live in the community and will be taking the car in for servicing there. I chose the Honda CRV EX-L because of the research I'd done and because I had a Honda CRV that I'd driven trouble free for 11 years. Honda's reputation is well-earned. Ranchland Honda is the only Honda dealer in my community and I will always shop locally unless the service is bad. The whole car-buying process was quite smooth thanks to CarCostCanada, Consumer Reports Canada, and my local dealer. Thank you all!
Buying a 2009 Honda Civic Sdn, and saving $1500 off of MSRP.
If you can afford to buy a car there's no better time than now! After saving $2500 from factory/dealer incentives and getting over $1000 off the price of the car the only thing better was the 0.9% financing for 60 months! There was also another factory incentive of $500 for a Civic EX-L with a manual transmission that was not listed on the CCC printout.
