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!
