Buying a 2009 Honda Civic Sdn, and saving $1500 off of MSRP.
It was very helpful having wholesale price report ready. I went to the dealership and talked to the manager. I knew what I was looking for. I had my wholesale price report ready. The manager looked at the report and didn't even check any other info. He was very honest and showed me his cost which was little higher than actual report. I bought my car for $22,100.00 including a two way remote car starter, all weather mats, rear mud guard, block heater wire, life time free oil change and GST. I am happy that I became member at carcostcanda and saved money on my car. Thanks to carcostcanda.com
Buying a 2009 Honda Accord Sedan, and saving $2000 off of MSRP.
We approached the negotiations with two other dealers before Yellowhead and all in the same manner - we wanted the dealer to make a reasonable profit and we wanted a reasonable deal. Knowing the true costs are instrumental to doing this with confidence. The two ''other'' dealers were put-off by this and were actually quite rude. Kristopher and the folk at Yellowhead Honda (which will soon relocate and be renamed Pointe West Honda) were great! They helped confirm our initial offer, countered with an actual dollar amount then helped close the deal in an up-front and friendly manner. The follow-up support/service has been exceptional. All-around a very pleasant experience.

I took the report figure, entered them on a spreadsheet and provided the sales rep with the printout, highlighting how I determined their expected profit on the car (3%). The sales rep came back with a 5% mark up quote, I immediately started walking to my car and the sales rep immediately proposed a lower price of 3.5% mark-up... I didn't go to the next dealership for 0.5%. Knowing their cost allows me to be firm with my offer; I KNOW that my offer was reasonable. It was much much easier to negotiate knowing their expected profit; as opposed to trying to guess what price is reasonable for both sides.
The 2009 Honda Accord EX-V6 had a $2,377 mark-up in the retail price. I got them down to a $1,000 mark-up which is 3.5% of cost; in addition, I received a $3,000 rebate as per the CCC report (one of the dealers actually pretended that the rebate is not available on the 2009s until I showed them the CCC report). Combined, I obtained a $4,377 saving from the full retail price. This is not bad as it is notoriously difficult to get ANY discount from Honda dealers.
Buying a 2009 Honda Pilot, and saving $4000 off of MSRP.
The Wholesale Price Report was very helpful in negotiating the price of the Honda Pilot. This was our first time negotiating for a car and using the report and it was very valuable getting the best deal. The dealer was quite surprised that as a consumer, we were quite informed about cash incentives as well as dealer price.

I think this dealer was ready to deal, I didn't have to wait 3 hours to make the deal and it went very smoothly.

Make sure to know what is the final number that you want to pay and don't back down from it. The sales person will try to push you to pay more.
Dont be scared to walk away!! They need your business!!
Once they saw i know what i wanted they changed and they got me what I wanted.

Buying a 2008 Honda Odyssey, and saving $3000 off of MSRP.
Yellowhead Honda was the second dealer that I approached with the information I received from Car Cost Canada (Dealer Invoice Price). Made up an offer spreadsheet and submitted it to the dealers, both seemed to know about Car Cost Canada. Firstly I negotiated a final cost to me including all options and taxes. Then I negotiated a price for my trade-in. Had to do quite a bit of negotiating with the trade-in because of all the rebates being offered for the 2007 Honda Odyssey, which say the dealers the market value of my trade-in dropped by that amount of the rebates. However this was resolved and we did make a very good deal, I feel. So I very much recommend using Car Cost figures and approach the dealer prepared. I recommend you go to more than one dealer and use their bottom line price against each other.
Buying a 2008 Honda Accord Cpe, and saving $8000 off of MSRP.
I was very honest with each of the dealers I spoke with. I approached the first person I saw and instead of waiting for them, I shook their hand introduced myself and said I was not there to waste anyone's time. I knew what the MSRP was and I knew what the invoice price was. I wanted to be fair, I wanted everyone to be able to "eat" but I was in it for me.
They made me an offer on the 2009 Accord Coupe, but suggested one of the remaining 2008's because of a dealer rebate. They were very reasonable on the 2009, $500.00 above invoice, however they could get me a loaded 2008, for $1000.00 less than INVOICE. On top of that, they subtracted the $3000.00 rebate and I walked away with a total price "all in" (including life time oil change and theft protection) of an amazing $33,400.00. That is correct including GST.
I can't say enough how empowered I felt during the process. I was honest, up front and in control right from the start. I am generally not someone to say hi first or introduce myself to anyone, but I think that was almost as important as the information provided by car cost canada.
Thank you so much.

I presented Sean the price report, and he recognized that I had been doing my research. Also, if you are looking at adding extra's that manufacturer/dealer offers, do your research. Parts like "sport shift handle" can be bought online from Honda parts stores for less than half the price.
