Thank you for the reply. The Ford dealer I visited yesterday was less than forthcoming about these rebates and wouldn't even show me the x-plan pricing on the vehicles I looked at. Thank you again.

He also had no idea what a job 2 Focus was.

His reply to my questions about FMC financing was that the interest rates weren't relevent as I could just refinance with my bank in 2 months. My FICO score is 797 (pulled on Saturday morning at my bank which offered 2.48% for up to 48mos. 2009 model or newer). Wouldn't the interest rates on FMC financing be competitive with my own bank? Do the dealers set the interest rate irregardless of credit score?

The whole experience was weird and he could have sold me a Fusion, but didn't. Weird.
