Buying a 2017 Honda CR-V, and saving $500 off of MSRP.
The amount of money saved using Carcost was a joke. I could have saved as much without using it.

Buying a 2011 Honda CR-V, and saving $1000 off of MSRP.
Read the contract thoroughly, the dealer adds on a "Security Pkg. $299."Which they say replaces the adm. fee. I checked friends dealer invoices & did not see any adm. fee or security pkg.I checked 2 other dealers & it was''nt on their invoices, So get it taken off contract or go to other dealerships
Buying a 2012 Honda Odyssey, and saving $6000 off of MSRP.
The price allowed me to purchase, at what I believed to be $300.00 over. Now that I am looking at the invoice, there seems to be an error (in the dealers favour). I will follow this up on Monday.

Instead of arguing over the price. I handed them the CarCost paper showing the dealer invoice and they quickly agreed to the price I was offering. I offered them 3% markup and they took it. It was also two days before the end of the year and they were desperate to sell more cars before year end.

Whitby Oshawa Honda has an e-business manager. He deals specifically with Internet inquiries, which really made it painless for me.

Research to find the most suitable vehicle. CarCost Canada and calling dealer to find best price.

Shop around and get several quotes and then use them against one another.
Leasing a 2012 Honda Civic Sdn, and saving $1000 off of MSRP.
Relatively straight forward negotiation. After the test drive, I informed Tish that I have a car cost report. She took the report, discussed it with the Manager and came back with a 4% over invoice pricing (The difference between invoice vs MSRP is $1,345, which is approximately 7%). I questioned why 4% over invoice because I am not willing to go over the 3% over invoice. The manager explained that there is a shortage on the civic and that initially he wanted to go to 5% over invoice but reduced it to 4% over invoice at the recommendation by Tish.

This dealer was laid back and not pushy. They didn''t use high pressure sales and worked hard to find the original vehicle I wanted, when they couldn''t get it in soon enough they promptly found me the next model and had it onsite and ready to go within a couple of days.

Make sure that you go over every line of the contract. Mistakes can be made such as taxes charged on factory incentives.

Leasing a 2008 Honda Civic Sdn, and saving $1500 off of MSRP.
I printed out price reports on each of the 3 cars I was interested in and they were all in roughly the same price range. I mostly chose the dealerships because they were in my line of daily travel but in each case all I had to do was hold the report in my hand and the dealers immediately gave me a deal on the car of 4% above dealer cost. I was prety impressed that I didn''t have to haggle or stress out about trying to get the best price for the car I wanted. In the end I chose the vehicle that I enjoyed the most because I didn''t have to worry about overpaying.
Buying a 2011 Honda Accord Sedan, and saving $1500 off of MSRP.
Didn''t have to negotiate at all, Dealer automatically gave me Dealer cost plus 4% profit. Car Cost listed average profit is between 3% and 6%, so I found it fair.
I don''t like to negotiate, so knowing the deal cost gave me some confidence that I was getting a fair deal. I may have been able to do a little better by negotiating the profit margin, but it would detract from the whole experience, at least for me.
I test drove 5 different vehicles and only did a Car Cost report on the ones I seriously considered.
Car Cost was well worth the money, just for giving me peace of mind that I wasn''t getting taken.
John Baird was a very good salesperson, friendly and put me at ease.

Buying a 2009 Honda Fit, and saving $1000 off of MSRP.
I recommend everyone to go to Bill Hollaway. I bought Honda Fit 2009 and it was great! I got the wholesale price from carcostcanada and I calculated 5% profit for the dealer since I know that Honda Fit 2009 is in a pretty high demand. When I went in and talk to Bill, I didn''t even use the wholesale price I had calculated. Bill actually offer me the wholesale price + lower than 3% profit. He is a very great guy. He details every cost and tell me how much the dealer actually get from the car. He also advice me many great stuff. His after sale is perfect. If I have any question, I can just email him and he will answer me on the next day. Bill Hollaway at Whitby/Oshawa Honda is a GREAT GUY!!

Buying a 2008 Honda Fit, and saving $500 off of MSRP.
I chose the dealer because they still had manual trasmissions on the lot. Because of the $1,000. rebate, this was the wrong time of year to be buying an ''08 FIT or Civic. Oshawa/Whitby happened to have overstocked in anticipation. I showed the rep the CarcostCanada paperwork immediately, and there was no haggling. We started immediately with that price. Had it not been for the shortage of the two cars I wanted, I am confident the savings would have been more.
Buying a 2008 Honda Accord Sdn, and saving $10000 off of MSRP.
I chose the Whitby Dealership because it was close to home. The general manager, William Chu, was great. Honda was offering $7000 cash back if you purchased a 2008 Accord EX-L V6. The discount was so great that the V6 was only $1400 more than the 4 cylinder. Because of the current automotive situation, I told the dealership that $500 over cost was more than fair. When I pulled out the Wholesale Price Report they knew that I was serious about buying this car and that I had done my homework. I saved $1898 on the car! I know this because they offered me the same price as the person that bought one earlier. If it wasn''t for Honda''s discount and Car Cost Canada, I wouldn''t have been able to afford this car. This site is great! Keep up the fabulous work, especially with the email updates. The emails made it possible for me to keep up with any additional incentives or changes. Thanks

The wholesale price from CarCostCanada is as the same as the dealer cost. When I showed the wholesale price to the sales rep. He stopped play numbering game, and told me the dealer has to make a thousand dollars for that car. However, he could consider me as a VIP for this deal to BYPASS the rule.
It is worth to get the wholesale price. It will save lots.
