Hey folks, I'd like some advice. I live in zip code 19063

I was pre approved w/ my CU for $25000 at 2.49% - I have 90 days to use this.

I'm looking for a black Focus Ti hatchback w/ leather and sunroof. Both are a must
Nav, winter pkg, handling pkg are optional (i'd like these but don't want to turn down a good deal because it's not on the car)

I am eligible for X-Plan through my employer.

I will be trading in a 2002 Ford Focus LX 4dr w/ 79K miles
and maybe another $2500+ in cash

Give me your best advice on how I should approach the dealership. I've never negotiated a car in my life, I don't want any dealer extras or extended warranties.

What would be my out the door price w/ all the information I have just given you?

How do rebates/incentives work? Right now when I search dealer inventory '12 have $1500 customer cash and '13 are just $500

I do not care if I purchase a 2012 or 2013 - They both seem the same to me. I'd go for best/lower deal.

Thanks!
