You can combine the $2,395 & $500 rebate. I don't see the $250 program so I'd need your zip.

1) I'm looking to buy/lease in December. What is the trend in selling for December because the year is ending?

with leases it really won't matter since money factors are already where they were for 2012's a few months ago. Nothing will change with leasing.
With regard to purchasing we might see up to $2,500 in incentives once we hit December but I wouldn't promise anything.



2) I'm specifically looking for an SE Hatchback 5 Speed Manual with the 201A and Winter Package for sure. I could deal with a Black Pack depending on the color, as well as a moonroof but neither is a must have. Colors I'm interested in are Performance Blue, Tuxedo Black, and Oxford White, with blue my first choice and the other two tied for second. Could you locate ones in White and Blue? I've found a Tux at Washington Ford nearby.

There are at least 6 in every region in the colors you specified, you should have no problem finding one.


3) My zip is 15238, Pittsburgh PA. I'm a college student graduating this May. What would be the price you could offer on a similar car today given student discounts, a fair price between invoice and MSRP, and the current incentives on 2013 Focuses?

Take new retail delivery from dealer stock by 12/21/2012

That's what it says on the $500 cash offer. Does that mean my car choices are limited to what the dealer has in stock? Or could they find the car that I want for me?

I am looking at ordering a 2013 Ford Edge straight from the owner of the Dealership. He built exactly what I wanted and printed me a copy. Here is the breakdown:

2013 Edge SEL FWD
OPTIONS
205A
53G
61P

MSRP works out to $34,790
Invoice works out to $32,901.64

Now in that invoice price is a Fuel Fee of $67.64 and a Adv fee of $509.00

Are those legit fees?

Rebates are $1500 and another $1500 if I finance with Ford. Also, I am aware of a SDI for this area (Kansas City, MO) of $300 and I have a private offer of $750 (postcard).

So my ultimate question. Since I am dealing with the owner of the dealership I know there is no "commission for a salesman", but he will get his holdback.
Would an offer of $27,790 be too low? I know that cuts into his holdback, but this is an order, and I pick it up when it comes in. He doesn't have to have it sit on his lot, etc.

Thanks!

So you want to offer $1,400 under invoice after rebates?

Some dealers will take it but most will not, he's not keeping any holdback at that offer since you'd be taking all of it and then some.

And yes fuel and advertising is legit, something has to pay Mike Rowe for all his commercials.

Ok. I hear ya. What would be a great price on it where he would make some money then? Invoice minus all rebates? Dip into holdback a little?

Holdback

Is Holdback calculated any differently for the ST (or any special models)? Is it still 3% of the configured MSRP? Just want to make sure $885.75 is the correct amount for an ST3, Moonroof, and TS paint. (30,320 - 795) * 0.03
