I have purchased two Honda's from Elk Grove Honda in the last couple of months, a Fit S and an V6 EX-L Accord. In both instances, Don, my salesperson, never was pushy and made every effort to make the buying experience a good one. Being an avid reader of the forums, I was pretty aware of what prices were being paid for the vehicles and, in each instance, there was really no back and forth negotiations. Fits, being high mileage cars and of limited availability, are often going for prices significantly above sticker. We asked to be called when a red one was in stock, which they did. When we came in for a test drive, I noticed a dealer mark up of, if I recall, about a thousand dollars, over MSRP. At our request, it was immediately removed and after just a little dickering, a fair price was arrived at. As for the Accord, I initially contacted the internet manager about the outgoing 2008's, but there in the showroom was a beautiful 2009 in the Pearl White which I coveted. None of the remaining 2008's were in this color. I knew I couldn't get it for 2008 prices, as the 2009's had just arrived, but Don and the internet manager were able to take about $2500 off of sticker, which I figured was very fair. I could have probably negotiated the price lower, but I figured their offer was fair and I wanted to be fair in return. After a long test drive (they allowed it to be quite long so I could test out the VCM system at a variety of speeds), I was satisfied and happy with the purchase.
