I've noticed that as well. I don't like it. My aim is to wait for the next 0% event and make an offer with a substantial down payment. The way I see it, it's a sale they can make or a sale they can lose. I simply will not finance a car with interest, and Ford does their own financing, not through a bank, so they certainly have the power to make these decisions. I'm hoping the fact that I am already financing a car at 0% and I am willing to put a large down payment on the car at regular MSRP are good enough reasons to just do it.
