Don't take this as 100 percent as I am sure someone with more knowledge than me will be along. Dealers have something called allocation. If they don't have any then even if they want to they can't order a car or if they order a car it takes a while for the factory to pull it or schedule it for production or whatever they do. If probably depends on if your dealer had allocation or not if the order has been accepted. I believe if you can get the dealer number and order number then you could pm the ford customer service people here on the forum and they can check the status of your order for you.

^Take the above with a grain of salt I am sure someone will be along later to break it down better for you.

The As long as your not a complete idiot part is key here. I think "some" dealerships try to take people as much as they can. Having forums with people like you and imccrea really help to educate people. I know one of the ford dealerships I went to on my car search blantantly lied to me about rebates saying that there were non available for my titanium among some of the other little trick they tried.
True, just gotta do a bit of research

Can I have you look up invoice on this VIN: 1FADP3N26DL168437 (this is the exact car I'm looking for)

Ballpark figure I should be in, and both parties would be happy with? I'm not looking to steal a deal, altho it would be nice...but I don't want to be taken for a ride either.

I've done a lil reading about x-plan, but am not sure which direction to go.

THanks in advance for any help/advice you can offer.

imccrea,

Once an order has been placed, how long do you have to cancel it? Order was placed on 11-5-2012, I know it hasn't been built yet, but just wondering if there is a "no going back" point?

Thanks!

X plan would probably be the least headache and puts you at $26,013 before rebates are applied. $25,500 would be a good deal assuming their dealership fees aren't more than $500.

It depends on the dealership, if the order hadn't scheduled yet we would let you out here. If they have a VIN number you have to discuss it with them. Also dealers can get in trouble with fake orders on certain units. So they might hold you to it.

Do dealers sell 2012 focus much cheaper than 2013? How much below invoice? Ford doesn't list the incentives for the 2012 model in 94116 too.

Usually not, invoice is the same as a 2013 it's just the incentives that could be bigger on a 12.

I offered $24794 for VIN:1FADP3N21DL158978 . Dealer said no way and didn't even attempt to negotiate. Was it a bad offer.
