The dealerships around here are pretty decent, both have great ratings when it comes to sales and neither of them try the traditional tactics. When I went for my '12 SEL I pretty much had the ball in my court at all times, I was able to wiggle and negotiate price pretty well and ended up with (at the time) a pretty good deal, they gave me over KBB value on my Mazdaspeed 3 (with one accident on record, and some shoddy bodywork that never got resolved) and under MSRP on the Focus.

I actually just got back from having it serviced and afterwords took a test drive in an ST3 they had on the lot, talked to the same salesman and got an initial idea of the numbers (of course at MSRP, I wasn't talking numbers today just getting an idea, so that will come down for sure). He must have known what I had in mind for the test drive because he gave me the key fob, told me to have fun, and that he'd talk to me when I get back, lol.

Man, I'm sold from the test drive though... I need to crunch the numbers big time.

They actually emailed me that price and I had to haggle with them on my trade. Regardless I dont know many people getting that kind of deal on an ST, there are a few, I did a huge search and found a few, bit too far for me to deal with. This was a local dealer who knew I purchased 3 other cars from their biggest competitor in the last 2 years. So they went aggressive to get me in there. While at that dealer I Was on the phone with the other dealer working a deal on another identical car and working them hard. If they know you are serious they will deal, especially on the last day of the month!
I believe you, I just wanted to be sure you were getting that price off the MSRP. 3300 sounds like a great deal but if they were marking up their car to begin with then it wasn't any loss for them, if you see what I mean.

Glad to hear someone getting such a sweet deal though, guess I'll haggle before throwing the X-plan out there to see if I can do better or not.

Did you have to do any negotiating/haggling to get 3300 off the sticker price? What was the sticker price, btw? There have been some significant dealer markups on the STs, so I just want to be sure your 3300 off sticker was actually 3300 off MSRP.

egbertnr I traded in a 2012 Titanium with 10500 miles and got my ST3 for 3300 off sticker. I bought my 12 Titanium used too with 4k miles. I am not sure but thats about the best deal I have ever got on a car. as far as the 3300 off sticker, better then A plan for sure. Look at it from a percentage standpoint which is what all fords plans are.

timinac Make that 2. I have a 2012 Titanium with handling package I'm looking at trading for an ST2 w/o options. I really miss a manual transmission! Sent in an email application for X-Plan this morning.

feta_mgp Reviving this thread as I may be trading in my '12 for an ST2...

If I get X-Plan on an ST2 package with no other options, what am I looking at price wise? Or where can I find out?
