Talking So I Went To The Dealer To Check Out The Euro Focus... again!

But this time i was in luck! -



I went yesterday and took some pics -













You can see my wife on this one -










































Let me just say:

THIS FREAKEN CAR IS B E A U T I F U L!!! Way better in person than any picture. It's way bigger than i thought.


So while i was there, i got quote!:



The quote is in spanish and in pesos. Our current exchange rate is 11 x 1 (eleven pesos to each dollar).

So basically here's the Run down -

Car Price (cash) - $ 25,445.45 usd.

Or

15% Deposit / Down Payment - $ 3,816.82 usd.
Insurance - 1,269.33 usd.
Opening Comission - 594.78 usd.

Total Down Payment - $ 5,680.93 usd.

And the rest as fallows:

12 Months - 12.90% = $ 1,939.97 p/month
24 Months - 12.90% = $ 1,036.44 p/month
36 Months - 12.90% = $ 737.15 p/month
48 Months - 12.90% = $ 588.90 p/month
60 Months - 12.90% = $ 501.06 p/month

Is it me, or is this a wee bit too high? You'll end up paying a lot more!

For instance, if i were to take the 60 month plan, i would end up paying $ 35.744.53 ???

I might as well wait for thr Fiesta ST to come out and turbo it. The Fiesta ST is somewhere around $ 18,000 usd.

Anyways, the wifey fell in love with this:

12.9% is a high rate. Is that what they quoted you? Even with not so good credit you should be able to find a 9.5%.

I can't see the pics cause I'm at work and they have most of the photo sites blocked, but yeah it costs more because the interest has more time to work on it.

$25,000 is a lot and further makes the case for why the car was never brought to the US.

WoW nice. Only one drawback is if we in US were to buy it from mexico and anything brakes, it would be major PIA to replace/repair.
Can you imagine coming to the dealership, and they would ask: "What car do you have?"
-Ford Focus ST Euro Model.
-What???? Ford doesn't make this kind of car.
-It's parked right there, go see for yoursefl...
-Is is Ford?
ect,ect.

Other than that, I would buy it!

yeah, $25,000 isn't out range at all... not for that performance bracket. it's maddening that the ST is that close to the US, yet we can't get it here... Ford coulda still sold the fugly base model Focus we have today, then imported some ST's from Mexico in limited quantities as the performance version. if the quantites were small enough, I don't see how they would be losing money... way to make the brand boring in your own country, Ford!
