Buying a 2010 Ford Escape, and saving $1500 off of MSRP.
Bring up the fact that you have a report early in your interactions with a salesperson. Also, indicate that you have done your research and that you are not interested in negotiation; you know what the dealer cost is. Ask them what is the best they can do and they will work with you fairly.

Go online and view the dealership''s inventory. Remember, if it is on their inventory it costs them money to carry it every day it is not sold. The least effort they have to make to sell a unit the better deal you will get. If you know exactly what you want and what you want to pay you will do well. Do not provide too much personal information.In my case I got the report, researched the dealership''s inventory on-line, chose a specific vehicle from their inventory( I had test driven one similar at another dealership which was not receptive to car cost data and wanted thousands of dollars more for a 4 cyl when I got a 6 cyl), Contacted John MacIntyre,Sales Manager, made the deal on the phone, confirmed via fax and then went in and purchased it and drove away.

Always go to the sales manager -- any salesman will not be able to help you. I tried going to Fundy Ford in Middleton and they short of laughed us out of there, but I had no issues with Steele Ford. They knew I did my research and weren''t there to push me around.

Watch when offers are expiring and gauge the market. We rushed in to buy before a promotion ended only to have it extended and an additional $ 1000 factory rebate added Feb 17th that we missed out on. Sometimes trying to save money can cost you alot.
Buying a 2009 Ford Mustang, and saving $6000 off of MSRP.
I am a customer that is wary of dealerships, until I sign the last piece of paperwork.
Randy kept his word, included everthing I requested, and called me to save me money. The finance department called around to different banks to shave off interest rates. All without being asked.
It was an enjoyable experience.
Randy came in on his day off to close the deal. He took the time to answer all my questions honestly.
After we signed the deal, I took Randy for a beer.
