Looking at at 2014 SE in zip code 27609. Was offered $2000 customer cash (does this require financing?) and wife is eligible for $500 student rebate. It's there anything else that stacks.

I'm eyeing the last 2013 Focus ST with 202a package and sunroof at a particular dealership which offers discounts if you're a member of BJ's.

The car's MSRP on the site is $29,335. They've told me that with the BJ's discount, it's $28,400. So after the $2,000 in rebates, it would seem that we're now looking at $26,400. According to Edmunds, the invoice on this car is $27,653, so on the surface it would seem I was getting the car for WELL below invoice.

1. If that's the case, I couldn't imagine the dealership would be willing to lose money on the car, especially over $1,000. Am I missing something?

2. If I want this dealership to get me another ST off another dealer's lot 46 miles away from dealer #1 (different color choice), what would a reasonable amount of money be to pay in transfer fees? Or, should I just forget the BJ's discount and haggle with the farther dealer instead?

3. Also, the $2k in rebates ends this month. I would LOVE to get the car by the end of the month, but if I don't, is it most likely that the rebates will get better next month, or go away altogether? They will be a deal break for me, unfortunately.

There is no yellow available on the regular 2013 Focus, only the Tangerine Scream on the ST. Yellow Blaze Tricoat Metallic was only available in 2012, same with Kona Blue (only part of the model year even), Frosted Glass, and several other one year only paint colors).

so I have my dealership survey what score do they need in order to get their bonus and what extras if any may be included for giving them a great survey score?

What would a Ford sales person do?

I was sold a new Ford Focus 2012 SE by a Ford dealership with two unaddressed recalls : FSA Recall 12B37 and FSA Recall 12S29C.

I'm in Canada so the US federal law that prevents the sale of new vehicles with unaddressed safety recalls does not apply. As far as I can tell, there isn't a similar law in Canada.

Ford Canada has opened a complaint with the dealership but after most of a month, I've heard nothing from them about this.

To say the least: I'm pissed off. The car is full of defects, TSBs, recalls. I'm constantly at (another dealership). And the original dealership couldn't be bothered to fix a safety recall.

What should I do regarding the unresponsive dealership? Complaint through BBB? Ideally, I'd like them to give me back my $ and they take the keys and ownership.

Hi,

I was thinking of going for a 2014 Ford Focus Titanium only because I heard there was some decent incentives going on. I live near Franklin TN and the zip is 37179. One of the sales guys told me they are doing $3500 off the Focus sticker price, but he didnt seem too sure.

I know its December and sometimes you can come across some great deals. According to a few websites it looks like the average buyer is getting the Titanium edition for around $20k. Can I combine that with a friends and family discount? Is there anyway to get them to sell for under 20k?

Thanks!

Hi there, new member.
Just wanted to say, picked up a 2014 Hatchback manual SE on thanksgiving weekend for $15550 plus tax/license etc in California. Not sure if I could have gotten a better deal.
