Hey all! This will be my first post on these forums!

I'm in the market for a MKC. A nearby dealer has a model instock at $39,200 MSRP + tax (2.0L FWD, Select, Plat. White, White Sands, Vista Roof, Select Plus, Select Plus Discount). That dealer is selling at MSRP + tax, minus the $1100 Select Plus Discount, $1000 Comp. Conquest, and $750 Private Cash Offer, rounding out at about $41,9xx.xx

However, I noticed the MKC popped up onto the Costco Auto Program. Located my nearest participating dealer, the model closest to my specifications would be a White Plat 2.0L FWD w/ CCD, White Sands, Vista Roof, Select Plus, Select Plus Discount, and also the Climate Package. The MSRP on this unit is $40,850, however, Costco is claiming invoice is $38,820, which would make it cheaper than the lesser loaded model!

Anyway, my question is, do any of you know what discounts the Costco Auto Program offers, and would the Costco-dealer's more loaded unit end up cheaper than the non-Costco program dealer?

Thanks! Excited to be rolling in brand new wheels soon!

I'm going to answer my own question here. Contacted Costco Auto Program, they found my dealer (an hour's drive away!) and they took the MSRP on the car ($40,850) and brought it down to the Costco-exclusive pricing of $38,998.60 before tax!

Costco is really helping me negotiate with dealers who are refusing to budge a cent off of MSRP. I took this Costco offer to another dealer who said they'd match it, even though they don't participate in the Costco Auto Program!

The MKc I ordered with 2.3, AWD, Select group, THX ll and dest was $41,855.00 and with the Costco plan it is $39.848.00 and the employee discount AZ plan $38,178.00. I found this by going to Costco auto plans and building my MKc.
Hope this helps.

Once I get the membership, do I work directly through Costco for the discounted price or will they direct me to a dealership?
They will direct you to the nearest dealer which participates in the Costco Auto Program. There are one or two contacts at that dealership who is a dedicated CAP trained employee. They have a special price for Costco members- it was 1,850 under MSRP for me.

However if that dealer is far away as they were, try calling your local dealer- they may price match the lower price even if they dont participate in the program, which is exactly what I did.

And if you haven't yet, you could also try AAA's carbuying service. Same concept as Costco- prenegotiated pricing, included with an AAA membership. But Costco membership has access to the bulk groceries which is nice too!

Thx for the info! Too late for negotiation on mine, but still quite interesting to build an MKC on the Costco site & see the dealer/msrp figures regarding each of the option pkgs. Actually, felt better about that whopping reserve pkg.
