Tips on buying a new car on island

I have only shipped cars from the mainland in the past. Now I am in the market for a new car. With limited dealers here, I would appreciate any tips on what to expect from the local dealerships and how to negotiate - e.g. anything specific to island business. I've been doing the research and it looks like Consumer Report's and Edmunds services that give you realistic prices are not available here (understandably perhaps). FYI - I'm looking primarily at Hondas, but have also considered Subaru and Mazda. Thanks for any help!
