I got two completely different prices for the exact same car, same specs, and same packages at canbec and west island with the exact same down payment. There was a difference of ~300 per month, which is quite unbelievable. (660$ at west island and 928$ at canbec.) Weird....
Yeah, Pierre, and yeah, Ciprian... without commenting too openly, you hit the nail on the head there. Like I said - some better, some worse.

Very interesting re: prices. I generally found that as long as the *total* price of the car is comparable, everything else comes down to math - either someone is playing with residual value, with tradein, with interest rate credits, or something of the sort. There is MUCH that can be done there, and I typically find that if I come in knowing more than the salesman about how them dollerz work, I tend to have a better predictability of what price will come out of his computar thingy
