Buying a 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe, and saving $3000 off of MSRP.
Great to know dealers cost so you can negotiate a fair price.

Only let the salesperson know what they need to know. Always talk about the final price (including all taxes, fees, etc). Let them know you have other options and are willing to shop elsewhere if you can't find what you want at the price that you want. Use your CCC reports to see how good of a deal you're getting and always ask about incentives that aren't advertised.

The dealer was chosen because it was closer to home. Helped to know the wholesale price in negotiating a final price.

Buying a 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe, and saving $4000 off of MSRP.
Used in combination with Consumer Reports online subscription. Difference between Retail and Wholesale price (markup) was bang-on. I gave the Sales Manager an email of my price offer and he mentioned that I had all my pricing right and the markup and wondered where I got it from. Gave me a good feeling that he knew I had a clear picture of how room there was to move on the price. Also, if there is a change in the rebate programs, you get an email telling you there is an update to check.

Test the vehicle on a different trip than your buying trip.
Contact multiple sellers, tell them what you know and what you want and let them bring a price to you. Negotiate over the phone. Once you are in the showroom you are on their turf.
Buying a 2009 Hyundai Elantra, and saving $2000 off of MSRP.
I was straightforward with the salesman about my Car Cost Canada report. Knowing that, we both agreed to a small dollar value on top of the base cost IF I were to buy the car. The salesman was a smooth guy - a good salesman and friendly, but you have to be wary of that! The things that really got me were:
- Not having to haggle - we agreed on a price even before I indicated how serious I was. - He let me take the car home and drive it for a couple of days - I could really test it out that way.
- And last, there were no hidden costs like security etching, or extra for this or that besides the standards like tire tax, and the option for extended warranty.

Buying a 2009 Hyundai Elantra, and saving $4000 off of MSRP.
The dealer was chosen as closer to home than originally recommended by Car Cost Canada, more convenient for servicing.
The sales rep and manager knew I had the report so negotiating for the price was much quicker than the normal back and forth over several iterations.
