Costco Program up and running

You can see the invoice price there....the first time I have seen that.


I believe you have to go through the process to get their discount which includes visiting a participating dealer.

Looks like invoice on the HR-V is $516 to $724 less than MSRP.

Also, I notice not all color choices are available on all trims for the HR-V. You can select a particular trim to see which colors are available for that choice.

For me, the Costco program will not be worth it, since they charge $500 over invoice plus the cost of a membership, bringing it over MSRP for the trim I want.

You have previously advertised this info. I'm just going by what you said.

Leon,
You were expecting to pay invoice for the car? Where did you see that $500 over invoice? ( You won't know discount until you talk to salesman participating in the Costco program). Your price does not show up on the website.


Honda has set what colors you can get with which trim. Costco is just showing that. Actually, I was surprised you could get the specific model and color you wanted. I plugged in "Manual LX, black interior" and all four colors
came up.


I am already a Costco member, so that adds nothing to the cost. I don't see how it is possible to drive it back above MSRP.


I am going to follow through on this to check it's price benefits. I am not ready to buy and I just think the info would be helpful to others. It even looks like you can get a "clean" one by taking extras off the car ,if possible or they will look for a clean one for you. If it turns out not any better than you can get elsewhere, I will duly report here.

Leon is right.....you did say you paid $500 over invoice suggesting that would be the same with the HR-V.

My apologies. I'm just doing the math is all. Yes, I am not a Costco shopper.

HRV4ME has said numerous times in this forum that it is typically $500 over invoice. I did not realize he was just estimating or what not, and that it varies.

So, seeing that membership is $55. Then $500 plus $55 would bring it over MSRP for some of the lower trims. That's all.

Disregard this if I did that wrong.

Leon,
I haven't checked all the trims but I did notice that there was actually a bigger gap between invoice and MSRP on an LX than an EX CVT. I thought that was strange, but there it was.
( All colors Honda offers were again available on the EX).


I will do more checking on the site later today. I think I am supposed to be contacted by a dealer later today in this program.


I am always a skeptic about these things, so I know where you are coming from.

Also, remember that COSTCO isn't the only buyers club. If you're in AAA or you work for a large company (or used to), you're probably in a no-cost program. Also your insurer might offer a program. A lot of times people have these benefits and never even notice it, so they throw money into the wind for no good reason. I have access to something like 5 car buying programs, and it cost zilch.

I'm intrigued by these buyers programs. I've barely heard of them, and never known anyone that bought through one. Either they're just not common (or even available) in Canada, or I'm just oblivious... which is equally possible.

Any Canucks with experience?

Interesting...
I will have to search those. I will still compare what I can do on my own,of course.
