Thanks in advance,

If you have $1,000 rebates I think you are offering too low. You're basically $1,500 under invoice which most dealers in their right mind would say no. If you came up $1,000 you could have a shot.

This isn't Focus related, but I couldn't find one for the Fiesta, and I have a couple of questions, easier one first.

For the A-plan, how much of a discount do you usually get on a car? For the Fiesta for example.

I was looking at the 2012 Ford Fiesta SE Hatchback with the 202A package, Winter Package, Remote Start System, Vehicle Security System, and Euro Style Grille Inserts, total was about $18,455.

What would be the cost with the A-plan included?

And, assuming I walked in wanting to pay off the car right then and there, with no financing, what's the lowest amount I can get the Fiesta by paying all cash? With/without the a-plan, doesn't matter.

Dearborn, Michigan
Zip Code: 48126

Thanks for your help.

I can't find any with remote start, and unsure of what the grill inserts are. More than likely you'll have to order if you want those and no dealers order that. I found one with the winter pkg 202A, etc MSRP for $18,470, A Plan is $17,436.
There's a $500 rebate that you'd get and A Plan is the best price out there, if you think you can do better you can try but no dealer will try to get close to A Plan.

New forum member getting ready to purchase a 2012 Ti hatchback who is eligible for X-plan partner pricing. Where does X-plan fit in this list as I'm also eligible under both the Costco and Amex programs. Thanks in advance.

It depends on your area really. X plan is set from the factory, cap on Dealer Handling fees as well but you can negotiate better than X plan.

For example we have a Titanium HB MSRP of $27,370 and X-plan of $25,806.

Our Costco price is $24,708 but once you add in fees it's back up to $25,357 (still better than X Plan).

Currently AMEX is in violation of our state codes so I don't have pricing for them but they are pretty agressive. You'll just have to shop to see what prices look like in your area.

Thanks for the info. Here in NE Ohio it looks like the X-plan was the better deal by about$100. Thursday I pick up a yellow blaze titanium hatchback!

Two Questions...

Did they ever fix the recall with the 6-speed automatic transmission, and
why is it so hard to find a coupe (2-door)? The sedan's B-pillar is too far forward and I have difficulty getting in the car.


I think the 2011 is a better focus, except for the back end. Just my 2 cents.
