All I see is the Military rebate, which I'm not part of, and the Ford Financing rebate, but the loan I am pre-approved for is better (2.49% for better much any term length). Is there anything else I am missing? Greatly appreciate the help.

Posted via FF Mobile Imccrea can you look up some local stock for me?

Long Island NY, my zip is 11580. Heres what Im looking for.

5door:
SE with 203A and sport package (that is the minimum wanted for an SE)
SEL with no options, I think its 300A or something like that.

Colors that my parents are specifically looking for are tuxedo black (i know lol) and silver. They also like the red tinted clearcoat. Even so a list of every color in those confirgurations would be greatly appreciated.

I went to a dealer today and the guy found a tuxedo black se sport with 203A that he said he could get. We were set to buy but after he talked to his manager he was like I cant sell you that car because you have Xplan and we wont make any money. Now I dont know where this car was coming from, he said it was local but pretty much after that we walked out.

Thanks man. Oh and he looked up our information and said i have $500 under my name. He didnt specifically say private cash but Ive been trying to get the offer again. Havent gotten anything in the mail yet but would you also be able to look up if I have anything? Ill give you my information in a PM if so.

So I just got off the phone with the dealer and they are getting closer to securing this vehicle I mentioned. Apparently, the number they quoted me was using Ford Financing Discount ($500), so if I use my own credit union loan the price of the car will be $20,850. Ford's lowest loan rate is 4.9% and my credit union is 2.49%. Seems like for the term of the loan, it is better to go with my credit union. Now with this new price, is this still a good deal?

Are there any incentives that I am missing? Zip code is 94550 for reference.

Thanks

Well to not lose out on the $500 rebate go with Ford at 4.9% at 60 then refi 3 months later.

Try for a private offer, request a brochure on Ford's site. I told a guy to do that and 3 days later he got 1.

I requested a brochure on Ford's site, but still have not received it. The 2.49% rate is only good till about the end of August. I'm not sure if it is available for refinancing, but I need to check with my loan officer.

What do you mean "private offer"? I am not familiar with that term.

I can't look up to see how far you are into the build, if it is on the line already then yes he's telling the truth. Otherwise you'd have to call Ford customer service.

Got a great rate from the bank- but it expires in days! And same with $750 cash back- I can't find a Silver 300a SEL hatch in LA, Ca. How about an SEL 300a or 301a in Silver or Grey? Or even one with a moonroof? I found a 302a but I don't want leather. I'd even consider a base Titanium. 50 miles of 91607
