MSRP is $25 545, but total before discounts shows $25 910. I was just wondering what the invoice price and possibly an agreement where both the dealer and I would be content It will be shipped from another dealer.

Thanks for all your help, you do a tremendous service here.
Are these US or Canadian $$?

Invoice is $23,948.64, $745 in holdback so if they dealer is shipping it and not trading their cost is invoice and they do not get the holdback.

2012 SE Hatch pricing?

Hi,
I just purchased a 2012 sonic blue SE Hatch with sport pack, manual transmission, and 203A convenience package. Totally in love with it, but interested in knowing how good a deal I got. What would be a dealer's bottom line on this car?

Invoice is $19,813
Rebates are up to $1,500

Our dealership would sell it for $17,413 plus a $649 doc fee so you're at $18,062 plus tax with all rebates.

I'm looking at incentives and such on a Focus; also have X-plan and one of those $500 "private cash" coupons that come with the brochure.. I see there's a $500 retail customer cash + $500 ford credit retail customer cash incentive..

Any way to use all those things together? How about if I ordered the car?

I see the fine print states "must take delivery from dealer stock" by Jan 3rd.. obviously if I order a car will not be in by then. Is there any way to get all those items combined still? Or if not do you figure something similar or better will pop up right when that expires?

Thinking 2012 Focus SE w/ a manual, sport package, the 17 inch wheels, and cruise control.. still debating leather.. due to the manual transmission just not seeing anything even close on dealer lots.

Thanks in advance!

Jon

What's the Ford Secret Handshake?

Other thing I just thought about was I've actually had a hard time shopping for Fords.. not sure if it's a Ford versus GM customer service thing or just bad luck but not giving up on Ford just seems more difficult to navigate a Ford purchase..

On this vehicle (not the first new one), after some research, went online an built two GM and one Ford vehicle, entered my contact info (real #, name, everything) and requested some quotes via the Ford & Chevy websites..

Next business day had two quotes (for below dealer invoice) on the Chevy's.. Got an automated email from a Ford dealer stating they'd get back to me soon...

Called the Chevy Salesguy who sent the quote and shot the shit, said I'd stop by for test drives when I had the chance.

A day later or so got a call from Ford customer service asking how my experience was.. I said it was poor, dealer X no response. They wanted me to arrange an appointment. I said OK but I want to know if they have X vehicle on the lot (namely a Focus with a manual), said they would check.. Next day another call from Ford, trying to confirm my appointment, again requested they confirm the vehicle I wanted as on the lot and to have a salesperson contact me.. nothing back to that effect. Got an email from the dealer about some vans that just came in...

Next day off went to the Chevy dealer, met the salesguy, and took vehicles for test drives.. He gave me a quote on paper.. Went to Ford dealer X, was greeted by a salesperson who walked me around the lot, couldn't find a manual, didn't offer to take one of the 2012 auto's out for a test drive or even unlock them, then attempted to sell me a Subaru WRX trade-in.. Gave him my contact details, no word since..

Went online and found a Ford dealer w/ a manual Focus, showed up, again greeted, let him know I was interested in a Focus manual, he showed me one.. I said "well I'd like to take it for a test drive".. he said "well do you just want to drive it?" (WTF?? its not a Ferrari) I said "well not even going to consider buying one until I test drive it".. he says "oh ok we can go for a short test drive but I will need your license".. 5 minutes later he comes out and we go for a about a 2 mile test drive.. I said I really liked the car..

I explained what options I was interested in (above the S model we took), he mentioned we could order one if something couldn't be located... I said "well I'm interested in seeing what the numbers look like in reality".. He said they were too short handed and couldn't do it at that time, took my contact information and notes of what I was looking for, then never got back to me...

If I arrived in a 1985 s-10 blazer wearing a "I wish I was black" shirt wreaking of booze I could understand, but I showed up in a fairly modern '06 (sure, a GM truck) fairly respectable looking vehicle, looking/acting fairly respectable etc.. no millionaire but I make 100K+, could have bought anything on the lot that day..

Every other time I've showed up at a dealership their goals seem to be Step 1 test drive, Step 2 provide "deal", Step 3 attempt to close.. Provide contact # and they are going to call back.. nothing out of these guys.

Anyway, is there some Ford secret handshake I need to know about or do these two dealers (and the online system) just suck?

Thanks,

Jon
