Whats a good price for a new Focus?

Hi all, I'm new to to this board.

Right now I'm considering buying a 2006 Focus Zx4 SE (maybe SES). I visited a local Ford dealership and saw one with a MSRP of $17500ish. After rebates and taxes and all that the dealer is asking for $13830 out of my pocket for the Focus. Is this too much? Is it a good deal? What should I try to haggle down to?

Thanks any and all for your answers.

Sounds good to me. I paid 11,000$ for my base model with nothing but A/C, and I worked for
Ford at the time!!

I'm trading in a Mercury Mystique but the dealer probably won't offer much for it since it has several problems.

But this is the Focus that the dealer quoted to me

Wait to see if you can find a car thats advertised in the newspaper. My car is fully loaded Zx4 Se mspr'd at 18500, I got it for 11,995 out the door. So check to see your local newspaper for deals. Plus this was without employee pricing!

Ford is running a 2000 dollar rebate and then they match your down payment up to 500 dollars. I just sold a 06 Ford Focus ZX4 SES for 14,500 OUT THE DOOR. no trade, just the 500 dollars down to get the extra 500 dollars from ford.

I got my 2k5 zx3 ses with everything but leather and traction. out the door taxes and all for 15k. i paid 108 over invoice. so there is the base for idea references.


also, mt

i think the price of the car was around 2200 less than the first sticker.
