You made the right call. I would have accepted the repaired vehicle, but only at a discount. It's unfortunate it happened and even if it wasn't their fault, it was in their hands. If I borrow something from a friend and damage it, he gets reimbursed even if it costs me money in the end. They should have realized they were going to lose a couple hundred bucks on this deal as soon as it happened. In their eyes though, they will probably sell it to someone who has no idea it was repaired, and not tell them.
True that, since dmg isn't reported it'll never show up a carfax.

bringler26 I'm glad it all worked out in the end for you!

rsilvers Negotiation is way easier than what I see people suggest to do. Just print out the Edmunds price, and take it to your dealer. No need to pay more as it is actually the average price that people actually pay. I always pre-negotiate before I visit the dealers at all. I emailed a few dealers and one of them quoted $300 below the Edmunds price without me even asking. You then reach an understanding that you can get any car from them for a similar deal. It has worked for me four times in a row.

Just realize it is normal for them to add in their doc fee (~$320 in my area), registry fee, and sales taxes - but absolutely no other fees.

Also, when I get that price, I don't ask for more. It really makes the buying experience more pleasant to have something like that to go by as when the dealers see it, they so far seem to think it is fair enough and have never said no. If they do, just try 4-5 dealers and 1-2 will say yes.

rsilvers I enjoy the Sync as well.

laned Picked up my focus yesterday and I love it. Still getting used to driving with a stick shift (drove automatic for the past four years) but I'm getting better every time I drive it. And although I wasn't crazy about it having sync, it's turning out to be really handy. No more trying to get my phone out of my pocket when driving and I never miss a call now while driving.

imccrea Glad you are getting the 203 and the vehicle you want, as others mentioned you receive 6 mo free.

When my free trial expired they offered me $4.99/mo for 1 year but I wasn't interested.

RonMaiden We got a 6 month trial with our Sirius. If I can get it at $15/month I'd consider it but for much more I'm not so sure.

Noob Saibot I believe it comes with a 3 month trial period, it might be 6 months I'm not sure, after the trial period has ended someone will call you or try contacting you to see if you want to subscribe to it. :)

laned So looking at the 203a package it looks like I'll get SiriusXM radio, does this come with a trial period or in order to get it will I have to pay for a subscription? Thanks.
