If you're under the impression invoice plus holdback isn't our cost then I don't know what to say, difference of opinion. Good luck with the ST.

At this point there is a ton of hype and ample enough interest that it makes no sense for them to cut deals on the thing. Maybe if sales don't pan out and they've got excess inventory at the end of the year, but it's going to be a feeding frenzy at first. I think if you have to be the first guy in town to have an ST you have to be willing to pay to play.

i got my vin already and want to update my order. I was told that I need to cancel my existing order and start over.

My question is, are rebates locked in on date of order or do they expire based on the delivery date?

rebates are based on order date or delivery date, whichever is greater.

Just announced that ford will not offer AXZ Plan pricing on the focus st, like any of the limited production units such as the boss, gt 500, svt raptor. At the moment all orders for the focus st are on material hold.

This question is off topic for a Focus forum, but there is no similar source of information for Explorers. Do you have any information on when pricing will be available for the Explorer Sport?

Checking Back

imccrea,
Just wanted to check back with you reference the vehicle I am looking for :2012 Titanium Hatchback. I attached the specs from the previous post. Thanks again!

Imccrea,
I have searched this situation and have not found a duplicate. First, I would like to thank you for the wealth of knowledge and information you have shared. It has help my wife and I solidify our decision to purchase the Focus.

My question is that I am looking to purchase in May. I would like a car that has been built in 2012 in the US plant (if possible). Below are the option we want:

2012 Titanium Hatchback
White Platinum
Moon Roof
18" alloy wheels
Black Leather
Sync My Ford Touch
No Navigation if possible
No other options


On Ford's website in the build and price area. The best possible match showed as follows:

Base MSRP: $22,305
Total Options: $3,975
Destination Charge: $795
SubTotal: $27,075
Available incentives: -$250
Net Price: $26,825

I was give a quote from a dealer through a friend of a friend for what I am looking for. The price was $25,298 plus 8% tax. I was told that this was the X Plan price (which I qualify for).

I searched around and found a couple of vehicles, one at McMahon Ford for $23,995. Last four of Vin#: 2093 and one at Bill Pierre Ford for $24,489. Last four of VIN#: 8283

Both of these listed prices are below the X Plan that I was quoted. Am I missing something here or do these prices vary this much and it all depends on the dealer? This is a very important purchase for our family. I have been researching this vehicle for 4-6 months (safety, maintainence, issues, customer satisfaction, gas mileage, etc..). I would like to make sure that I am not missing out on any possible savings.

I have been pre-qualified for the 3.9% @ 60 mos or 5.9% @ 72 mos. What rebates would I be eligible for if any that may be applied to the vehicle purchase? We were sent things in that past but, we were not ready to purchase at the time and those cupons are well expired. Our last name is Todd and we reside primarily in Arizona.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Any other constructive assitance from the members here is welcome. Thanks!

JT

Hi, I asked you a question a few weeks ago, and you were very helpful, and now I am wondering if I can have another answer or two.

I placed an order for a '12 focus SE sport with a manual transmission. I was told that I have to upgrade to a sync system, which I have no interest in. I was wondering if this is actually true? I had another dealer pull this tactic on me, and I have no interest in doing business with someone who tries these types of shenanigans.

Also, is it possible to check on the status of the $750 coupon that you apply for on Ford's website? I have filled in the forms a couple of times - the first time I got a brochure, and now I have not heard from them.

Thanks again for all your help!
