Buying a 2008 Honda Odyssey, and saving $2500 off of MSRP.
Used price report as a starting point, and Paul acknowledged the invoice price was correct, and we negotiated up small amounts from there. He was happy to give us the keys and let us test drive alone for an hour or so. Not much backroom checking to get a finished deal. Spent far longer with the guy selling extended warranties and corrosion protection though.

Honda Odyssey has very good reputation, and the dealer sales rep. Lee gave me very good price and no hassles to negotiate the price with him. I recommend him.
I printed the Wholesale Price Report and added $1200 margin as the start up of the negotiation price.

Leasing a 2008 Honda Odyssey, and saving $4000 off of MSRP.
Never used the Wholesale Price Report as they had offered what that price was.
Found the van I wanted (color) from another dealer and will have delivered.

Buying a 2009 Honda Civic Sdn, and saving $4000 off of MSRP.
I used CarCostCanada reports 8 years ago when I purchased an Odyssey from this dealer and it resulted in significant savings. For this purchase other factors came into play (I knew an employee). While I didn''t directly present the CarCost report - it was clearly visible in my papers and I suspect it was a factor in reducing the final cost.
I attempted to use the Price Report at two Kia dealerships in Calgary (Northwest Kia & Kia City) when trying to buy a 2010 Forte SX. Neither dealer would budge from MSRP! Further Northwest Kia also wanted to sell a $400 block heater and charge $600 in Processing Fees!

Honda has a great reputation, vehicle met my needs according to climate, price was in line with comparable vehicles, style was above expectations. Handles and performs well, mileage not bad for a v6. this online tool was used in negotiations.
Buying a 2009 Honda Accord Sedan, and saving $3000 off of MSRP.
The Wholesale Price Report was critical to the negotiation process. After applying the manufacturer''''s cash incentive and selecting the accessories it was extremely difficult to determine a negotiating position. The Wholesale Report gave me the range within which I could start the negotiating session.
Buying a 2010 Honda Civic Cpe, and saving $500 off of MSRP.
We were looking for a 2010 Honda Civic EXL Coupe or a Toyota Corolla S. We got the CCC report for both of these cars. A Toyota dealer phoned us who was "affliated" with CCC within the hour; when I told them what I wanted they sent me a an e-mail quote which I don''t believe any other dealer would have beaten. In fact one dealer we went to talk to denied knowing about a $1,500 factory rebate until we pressed him on it! We ended up buying the Honda Civic becuase we liked the car better but only saved about $500 off MRSP. The CCC report helped me to start negotiations and I knew I got the best deal I could becuase I dealer "walked away" when we were only $300 apart.

due to the popularity and availability of the car chosen, I wasn''t able to get maximal discount, but having the reports in hand allowed me to get some discount. It showed I had researched and was prepared. Being flexible and getting part of the discount on accessories also helped
