Did you use Consumer Reports car report to buy Santa Fe?
I'm about to purchase my new Santa Fe on Friday and my husband has requested the Consumer Reports new car report which shows exactly what the dealer actually paid for the car vs. the dealer invoice and MSRP. Did anyone use this tactic in negotiating the price of your car? Did it work or did it stress you out even more?

So is incentive information, such as manufacturer to dealer cash.
No one knows the "true" dealer invoice price. The dealer owner may not even know for sure until after doing quarterly or yearly taxes.
You'll never learn about the various bonus, incentives and spiffs that dealers get for moving certain cars, agreeing to accept certain models, or selling x number of cars during a time period. Then there are all the financial kickbacks for packaging the car loans. Not to mention stuff like free trips and cruises.
Most of the time the salestaff on the floor doesn't have a clue about all the perks and spiffs going to the dealer.
