Buying a 2008 Honda Fit, and saving $1000 off of MSRP.
Sisley Honda is a wonderful dealership. I have purchased other Honda cars from Toronto Honda and Parkway Honda, and I was not happy with both dealerships.
At Toronto Honda, the sales representative I dealt with, David Benning, was not above board. When he left his office to allow me time to speak with my friend, he left his phone on speaker so that he and his Sales Manager were able to listen to my supposed private conversation. This is the most damning report I have with this dealership, and I also incurred several issues when dealing with the Repair Department at that location.
I simply found Parkway to be unfriendly and untidy.
I spent one year "feeling out" Sisley Honda, and I am extremely impressed with the quality of dealership. The staff are friendly and genuine.
My sales representative, Wayne Kwok, was extremely respectful, patient, honest and kind.
Regarding the Honda Fit, I've owned it for approximately one month. The engine is very quiet, the suspension is tight, and it has a lot of room in the car for storage and for head and foot space. I own a 5 speed, and I'm very pleased with the ease in sifting gears. Honda is well known for their manual transmissions. I'm also very pleased with the design and look of the car.
I'm still adjusting to the new car, as I have always purchased Honda Civics.
Regarding how I used the wholesale price report during my negotiation with Sisley, I feel it was beneficial to have the report. It was duly noted I had done my research, and I believe the dealership gave the report its due respect. I feel confident having the report in hand about the Fit and the Yaris made the dealership negotiate strongly with me in my favour for the Fit.
