Took the focus for a test drive. It was great. The trans seemed fine, mft worked well etc...so we came to price. Car will be factory ordered 6to8 weeks, fine. Base titanium hatch with nav as only option , 20.8k....the sales guy was nice etc. here is the kicker, the cost includes the current rebate, and sales guy was honest to tell me that the rebate can c hange when car is delivered, meaning if the rebate is higher it will deduct from my cost, but if rebate is lower or none then I'm stuck paying the regular cost. He did state that my deposit would be refunded if the rebate changed on me and I wanted to back out of the deal. Has anyone else have this issue?
Not true, rebate protection once they've locked in the rebate your getting that.

2.9% honestly isn't the best rate to be giving up a $2,000 rebate for.
After shopping around a bit, I ended up getting the car yesterday!
As you pointed out, the rebate was really $2000, I was hoping the seller would let it slip but he double checked and had to adjust it down.
Still, he gave me $1600 ish under MSRP, plus the $2000 from Ford, so the car came to $21,900 before taxes. And I got 4.59% / 60 months through Ford, which isn't too bad, and I'm still ahead with the cash back.

One thing for sure, I'm glad I went for the Titanium, it's a great car, handles almost as good as my SVT, but definitely a step up from my girlfriend's 99 Corolla ;)

Focus Rebates for March

Any one have a crystal ball as to what the rebates will be for March? I am supposed to take delivery on a new titanium with an eta of 3 Mar. I have a large down payment down but am not sure if I have a rebate guarantee. 73130 zip code.

There is a chance it could arrive early, had an EB F-150 show up 1 week early from Flatrock. No crystal balls in Ford world, you get whatever it is if you didn't sign any buyer's order from your dealer.

It's a pig in a poke but I'm betting they will still have it! That being said, I still went with the $2000 in February with my Titanium!!

New titanium showed up on 29 Feb, 3 days early. The dealer said I would have gotten the rebate either way as I had a firm contract which guaranteed it.
Thanks to all who responded, it gave me more a sense of comfort anyway. Love the vehicle !
