Buying a 2010 Honda Accord Cpe, and saving $1000 off of MSRP.
I have owned a number of Honda vehicles and experienced mostly good service and pleasant buying experience. This time I let it be known that I had the Wholesale Price Report up front. Using the buying information provided I asked for an additional $1000 off over and above the manufacturer $3500 rebate. They tried to reduce the amount but I held firm and they accepted. I may have gotten a little more off if I started lower but was short on time and this was the last vehicle in the color I wanted.

We picked this dealership because they were respectful to us, none of the others were. The wholesale price helped us tremendously. We didn't know what was reasonable to offer. Even though they turned down our offer the first time, they did accept it later. Knowing the costs, we could say that we knew they were still making some money and that our offer was within reason.

When negotiating, first only focus on the base price of the type of your selected vehicle. At this stage, don't get distracted by the cost of options that the sales person will mention during negotiation. After the base price is determined, then go to consider the cost of options.

I checked out surrounding dealers for the same model and availability, letting the dealer know I wasn't concerned over which dealer gave me the deal. I did number crunching before hand and had an excel spreadsheet of Wholesale price +3 +4 +5 +6% so I knew what range I was in at a multitude of different numbers. I ultimately purchased for between 3 & 4% above wholesale report. No markup was given on freight/PDI or taxes (air or tire).
