You're interested in the awesome Focus ST, huh? I don't blame you at all; I am too! Build and price your dream ST here: http://bp3.ford.com/2013-Ford-Focus#/Packages/Config[|Ford|Focus|2013|1|1.|.P3L.....GAS.RET.44V.HAT.ST.]. Our dealers are in the best position to give you a trade-in quote.

...All you would lose is the sales tax if your state has sales taxes.

((Also remember when you DO trade in, you save all that sales tax, and $15,000 in sales taxes is around (5%) $750. up to (9%) $1,350 saved just for trading in...))

If you want a trade-in value, look at http://www.nadaguides.com/ Keep in mind this is just a guideline.

Hey everyone -

Kudos on all of the valuable trade-in information; Jig Saw loves it!
